Information Collected by 4Team
When you register with Mergix, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, email address, and any other personal or preference information that you choose to provide to us ("Personally Identifiable Information").
Personally identifiable information or personal information is defined as information that identifies you, as an individual, or an organization, and includes your name, company name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and billing information.
We only collect personally identifiable formation about you after you have specifically and knowingly provided such information to us. By voluntarily providing this information to us at various points when using our Site, including but not limited to: sending us a comment or suggestion; deploying an application from the Site; generating data in the course of using an application on the Site; entering a forum or bulletin board; downloading content; or entering a contest that is posted on our Site, you will be consenting to the collection and use of your personal information by us for that online activity.
If you invite others to use the Site, Mergix will ask you for your contacts' email address. Mergix will automatically send your contact an email inviting them to visit the site. Mergix stores this information to send this email, to enable them to easily respond to your invite, and to track the success of your referrals. Your contacts may contact us at email@example.com to request that Mergix removes this information from our database.
You have the right to access, correct, update, and/or delete your personal information at any time. You can do so by logging into the Site with your username and password, or by contacting Mergix customer support. Changes to your personal information are executed immediately. For example, if you terminate your Mergix account, your account immediately becomes inaccessible and all your personal information, including all your synchronized data within your account is completely removed from the 4Team Mergix servers.
Mergix uses the information collected from you:
- To authenticate your visits
- To conduct research
- To respond to your questions, or comments you forward to us
- To run chat rooms, forums or other areas of interaction with other members
- To contact you to discuss your use of the Site
- To provide requested information to you such as a password or to provide technical or customer support
- To view or access for the purpose of resolving a problem, support issue, or suspected violation of the Licensing Agreement, or as may be required by law
- To diagnose technical problems, and to administer our Site in order to constantly improve the quality of the Site
- To keep aggregate information on Site use
When you update information, Mergix keeps a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information. Mergix logs various types of information to help manage and improve the Site, in general and for you in particular. For example, Mergix identifies items such as domains and browser types to understand how the Site is used and to report these statistics in the aggregate to better manage the technology of the Site.
Mergix may enhance or merge Personally Identifiable Information with your other information and with data from third parties in order to better develop, market and provide our products, services and software, including under the following circumstances:
- technology and other service providers to provide technology and services to Mergix and to you;
- vendors that help Mergix with data analysis, for example for product efficacy studies and market analysis.
Mergix limits access to personal information about users to employees who Mergix appropriately believes need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to users or in order to do their jobs.

How Secure Is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number through the appropriate credit card company during order processing. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

European Union residents
For persons in European Union countries, terms such as "personal information" refer to "personal data" as defined by the Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (the "Directive"). We will not collect any personal data from you unless you provide it voluntarily by providing us with your freely given specific and informed consent. You acknowledge and agree that we may transfer such information (including, without limitation your personally identifiable information or personal data) to the United States or other countries or may share such information with our licensees and agents in connection with the Site; you should be aware that different laws and/or regulations may apply outside the European Union with respect to your personal data. Furthermore, if you request any technical support, you consent to remote accessing and review of the computer you load the Software onto for purposes of support and debugging.
Safeguards we have in place
We employ reasonable managerial and technical measures to ensure that your information is secure. For example, all personally identifiable information is maintained behind a firewall. In addition, Mergix uses server authentication, data encryption, encoded session identifications, and other advanced technology to prevent interference or unauthorized access from outside intruders.
Mergix does not condone spamming. Mergix will not rent, sell, or share Personally Identifiable Information or any of your synchronized data, or other contact information, or your use of the Site, and your data will not be used for spam or any other purpose outside of Mergix's services.
Mergix may periodically send you service-related announcements from time to time about the general operation of the service. Mergix reserves the right to send you such notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
Mergix does not and will not, at any time, request Personally Identifiable Information in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.
By visiting the Site and providing your data, you acknowledge and agree that due to the international dimension of Mergix some of the data may be transmitted outside your resident jurisdiction. Furthermore, you acknowledge and agree that such data may be stored on servers located in the United States.
If, at any time after you have provided information to us, and you have changed your mind about receiving information from us or about sharing your information, then you can either return to account setup and change your preferences or send us an email that specifies your request. Simply send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
