Information we collect and how we use it

We offer a service that requires you to register for an account and provide some personal and business information to us. In order to provide our services, we may collect the following types of information:

Personal information – When you sign up for an EquityNet account, we ask you for personal information (such as your name, address, phone number, email address, and account username and password). We also request that our customers provide credit card or other payment account information, which is encrypted and securely maintained at Authorize.Net. Email addresses and other user contact information that is collected through Crowdcast is securely stored and is used to send, resend, and unsubscribe from the Crowdcast mailing list. This information is collected for internal use only and will not be sold to or shared with third-party firms.

Business information – We may collect business information that may be used by us in an anonymous aggregate form. This information will not be used with an identification of individual users or individual businesses. Transparency of user and business data related to an identifiable business is restricted to recipient users who have been specifically authorized to view such information by the originating and authorizing user.

Contact information – Each time you use our Crowdcast functionality, you may grant us authorization to retrieve a list of contacts from an email account you provide. We do not interact with or store your credentials. You may select to use all, a portion, or none of the contacts that are listed. The contacts that you choose will be stored in our database only for the purposes of scheduling the emails and handling unsubscriptions from further mailings.

When using a Google account with our Crowdcast functionality, we ask for readonly access to your contacts at both the general and "other contacts" levels in order to provide the broadest base of people for you to contact about your business.

Google API Services – EquityNet's use and transfer of information received from Google APIs to any other app will adhere to Google API Services User Data Policy, including the Limited Use requirements.

Information security – We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. These security measures include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices, and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. We restrict access to personal information by EquityNet employees and third party service providers who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

User communications – Email or other communication sent to EquityNet, may be retained in order to process your inquiries, to respond to your requests, and to improve our services.

Affiliated sites – We may offer links to other websites as part of our services. Personal information that you provide directly to such sites may constitute privacy issues outside the bounds of the EquityNet Privacy Policies. EquityNet does not exercise control over linked sites and does not collect information as a result of your contact with those sites.

Business merger or acquisition – In the event that EquityNet Inc. goes through a business merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, personal and business information may be among the assets transferred. EquityNet Inc. will provide notification on its website for a minimum of 30 days if any such change in ownership takes place.

Loss of information – By using the site, you agree to hold-harmless and indemnify EquityNet from accidental loss or dissemination of information.
