In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future marketing communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below.
    2. If Taqtile intends on using any Personal Data in any manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy, Taqtile may inform you of such anticipated use prior to or at the time at which the Personal Data is collected.
  3. OUR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AND OTHER INFORMATION
    1. Taqtile is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
      1. Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
      2. Agents, Consultants and Third Parties: Taqtile, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function. Additionally, we reserve the right to use third party analytics service providers and advertising partners to collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our Services, including as described in this Privacy Policy. This Policy does not apply to – and we are not responsible for – those other parties and their use. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third parties to learn about your choices about information they collect from you. Furthermore, we partner with third parties to provide certain support services to our users. These third parties are responsible for their own policies and procedures to protect your information. Taqtile is not responsible for the protection or use of information that users provide directly to any third party in conjunction with the use of Taqtile’s Services. This privacy policy only applies to information provided directly to or obtained directly by Taqtile during your use of our Services.
      3. Legal Requirements: Taqtile may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Taqtile, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
  4. SECURITY
    1. Taqtile takes commercially reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data provided via the Services from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Taqtile uses security measures for any personal and account data that we store (e.g., emails, phone numbers, etc.). Account-identifiable or user-identifiable data collected through the Services may be encrypted and stored on our internal databases. Taqtile will not sell or transfer account-identifiable data to third parties. Any accessible data associated with your account or your profile can be retrieved only if you provide us with your account identifier. Please be reminded; however, that no Internet or email transmission or data storage is ever fully secure or error-free and that information on the Services may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or disclosed. In particular, email sent to or from the Services may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Data to Taqtile via the Internet.
    2. Please note that all payments for products and services are processed by third-parties. Taqtile makes good-faith efforts to use third-party companies which employ proper protections for private information. However, we have no control over said companies; therefore, Taqtile exclusively disclaims any obligation or liability for said third-parties processes and security measures.
  5. CHANGES TO THE PRIVACY POLICY
    1. Taqtile hereby reserves it right to modify/amend or otherwise change this Privacy Policy, as it deems necessary or appropriate because of legal compliance requirements or changes in Taqtile’s business practices. If you have provided us with an email address, we will endeavor to notify you, by email to that address, of any material change to how we will use personally identifiable information.
