Privacy Policy

We at Eyeist LLC (“Eyeist”, “our” or “we”) respect your privacy and take the issue of Internet privacy very seriously.

Eyeist operates an online service that provides photography editing and review services (the “Service”) performed by reviewers selected by Eyeist (the “Reviewers”).

By accepting the Eyeist Terms and Conditions available at https://www.eyeist.com/htm/protos/terms.html (the “Terms and Conditions”), you consent to the use and disclosure of personal information that you provide to us as outlined in this Privacy Policy. As Eyeist improves its services, we may modify our Privacy Policy, and urge you to check here for updates from time to time. Any capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy will have the meaning set forth in the Terms and Conditions.

This document specifies the following:

  1. What personally identifiable information of yours is collected from you through our web site, www.eyeist.com (the “Site”).
  2. The organization collecting the information
  3. How the information is used
  4. With whom the information may be shared
  5. The kind of security procedures that are in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information under Eyeist control
  6. How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information

Eyeist is the sole owner of the information collected on the Site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this Privacy Policy.

Eyeist collects information from our registered users (“Members”) at several different points on the Site.

Registration Information

In order to use the Service, both Members and Reviewers must first complete the registration form. As part of registration we request Members' contact information, such as name, password, username, Skype name and valid email address. This information is used to contact the Member about the services on the Site, and is also used as the Member's sign-in information. During the registration process, you have the ability to "opt-out" of receiving Eyeist information and updates.

Services Through the Site

You provide us with information during the process of registering the Service. We break down users of the Service into three categories, Users (who are just visiting the Site), and Members and Reviewers (you may register as both a Member and a Reviewer). Members must provide financial information such as a credit card number and expiration date in order to pay for and use the Service. Reviewers must provide contact information, including name, mailing address, username, password, valid email address, Skype address, information about yourself (e.g. job title and business address), and preferences about the types of services you want to provide, in order to receive payments from Eyeist. The information we collect from both Members and Reviewers is to provide users of the Service with the best possible service.

Communication Using the Service

Certain communications between Members and Reviewers may be recorded by either or both Members and Reviewers and in such case is maintained by Eyeist. Eyeist does not screen, monitor or edit the content of communications between Members and Reviewers. Such communications are personal and private unless both parties agree to additional distribution, for example in connection with any Reviewer’s Choice content (described below). Information that is relayed between the Member and the Reviewer during the provision of the Service is kept completely confidential, and no other users of Eyeist have access to this information.

Publicly Accessible Information

Eyeist makes Reviewer’s Choice content available to all visitors to the Site and on the Internet, including social media sites such as Facebook. Reviewer’s Choice allows Reviewers to post selected Member Content that can be viewed by any visitors to the Site and elsewhere.

Third Party Sites

The Site and the Service may contain links to third party websites and other online services. If you choose to visit a third party service or an advertiser by “clicking on” a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed accordingly to the applicable third party’s website or other online service. The fact that we link to a website, other online service, or content or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with the applicable third party, nor is it an endorsement of such party’s privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites or services. These other websites or services may place cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other websites and services follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites and services you use.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on a Site visitor's hard drive containing information about the Site visitor’s use of the Site and Service. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on the Site. Once the Site visitor closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on the Site, a Member would not have to sign in his or her email and password more than once, thereby saving time while on the Site. If a Site visitor rejects the cookie, he or she may still visit the Site. The only drawback to this is that a Member will have to sign in each time he or she visits the Site.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are also linked to personally identifiable information in order to better the Member's experience when using the Site. We may also retain any emails, letters, or other correspondence between you and Eyeist to ensure quality control and the best possible service, although we have no obligation to do so.

Use of Information Available Through Eyeist

To ensure both Members and Reviewers with the best service possible on the Site, and to facilitate communication between Members and Reviewers, Eyeist provides a messaging service for use by Members and Reviewers. By agreeing to Eyeist's Terms and Conditions and using the Service, Members agree to use the Reviewer’s Choice area and all communication facilities provided by Eyeist exclusively for interaction associated with the Service and its delivery. Members may not use information gathered through a Session to defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten or otherwise violate the legal and civil rights of any other Member. Members may not use information gathered through a Session to sell any goods or services for any commercial purpose outside the scope of the Service. Email addresses and personal information may not be used to forward surveys contests, pyramid schemes or chain letters, or to post the same message repeatedly (a practice referred to as "spamming"). Eyeist may terminate the ability of any Member or Representative to use the Service and/or the Eyeist messaging system.

Sharing

We currently do not share aggregated demographic information with third parties, but may do so in the future. This will not be linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We use a credit card processing company to bill Members for use of the Service. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. We reserve the right to partner with another party to provide specific services. When a Member signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

Security We Provide

Eyeist takes every precaution to protect our Members' information. When our registration form asks Members to enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is encrypted. We use the industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption and firewalls to protect against loss, misuse, and alteration of any personal data under our control. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to support@eyeist.com.

Children

The Site is a general audience site and is not intended for children under 13.  Eyeist requires that You must be at least 18 years old to be eligible to use the Service. However, if you are at least 13 years old but not yet 18, you may use the Service if, and only if, you have your parents’ or guardians’ prior permission. No one under age 13 may use the Service under any circumstances. By registering as a Member you are representing that you are at least 18, or that you are at least 13 years old and have your parents’ permission to register for the Services.

Eyeist does not knowingly market to, solicit information, accept service or collect information from children under the age of 13.  The Site may ask Members for their birth dates to ensure that the Site is not collecting information from children under age 13 or to identify when additional steps may need to be taken in connection with information collected from children under age 18.  When the Site has actual knowledge that it collects information from children or offers a service directed toward children, it will comply with applicable laws, including the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

At any time without prior notice, Eyeist may update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in Eyeist’s practices. When Eyeist posts changes to this Privacy Policy, Eyeist will revise the "Last Updated" date at the bottom of this page.  Eyeist encourages you to bookmark this Privacy Policy and to periodically review it to inform yourself of changes to it or any of Eyeist’s other policies. Any changes to Eyeist’s Privacy Policy will become effective upon Eyeist’s posting of the updated policy. Use of the Site constitutes your acceptance of the terms of this Privacy Policy then in effect.

California Privacy Rights Under California Civil Code Section 1798.83

If you are a resident of California (“California Users”), in addition to the rights set forth in this Privacy Policy, you generally have the right to request information from Eyeist regarding the manner in which Eyeist shares certain categories of personally identifiable information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Under the law, however, a business is not required to provide this information if it adopts and discloses to the public (in its privacy policy) a policy of not disclosing customer’s personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless the customer first affirmatively agrees to the disclosure, as long as the business maintains and discloses this policy. Rather, the business may comply with the law by notifying California Users of their rights to prevent disclosure of personal information and providing a cost free means to exercise that right.  Please note that Eyeist is only required to respond to one request per customer each year.  Eyeist is not required to respond to requests made by means other than through this e-mail address support@eyeist.com.
