Requests for Registration Information
Influentent collects personally identifiable information from Users only when Users voluntarily provide it as part of the registration process (“Registration Information”) to open an Account. Influentent never automatically collects any information that specifically identifies Users, such as their name, address, or e-mail address.
It is the User’s choice whether or not to provide Registration Information to Influentent, but such information is required in order for Influentent to provide you with services – namely, access to and/or participation in Assignments, to post Assignments and receive Writer Services, and certain other features of the Website.
Other Use of Personally Identifiable Information
Influentent may request and use personally identifiable information from Users for purposes other than to open an Account. For example, such requests may be made to enable Users to subscribe to a newsletter, participate in surveys and promotions, receive technical support, and invite friends to register with Influentent.com.
Influentent reserves the right to disclose Your personally identifiable information under limited circumstances in the event Influentent believes that the Website is being used to commit unlawful acts; if disclosure of Your personally identifiable information is required to comply with applicable laws or regulations, or with a court or administrative order; or will help to enforce our Terms of Service, to protect Your safety or security (including the safety and security of property that belongs to You) or to protect the safety and security of the Website or third parties.
If at any time You decide to remove Your personally identifiable information from our database, You may do so by emailing us at [email protected]
Non-personally identifying information
Non-personally identifying information (information that does not identify any particular User) will be requested and utilized by Influentent to improve the services provided to Users and to market such services.
