Information That Is Intended for Public Display
Users can submit information for public display, and that information can be shared with other users or through other venues. For example, users who submit reviews may have their reviews syndicated to other websites. Similarly, providers may submit information about themselves (e.g. preferred office phone number or a public email address) in the context of a claimed profile.
Why We Collect Non-Public Information
We may collect non-public information about you through your use of the Site to provide you with a better user experience, to study traffic patterns on the Site, and to identify potential violators of our Terms of Service and block their access. Information that we collect includes, among other things, search queries, browser type, and IP addresses. As is standard practice on many websites, DocSpot's Site uses "cookies" to enhance the user experience on the Site and to allow us to better design the Site.
When We Disclose Non-Public Information
To Third Parties: We may share aggregated information that includes non-public information with third parties. For example, prospective advertisers may be interested in understanding traffic patterns before agreeing to advertise, and information such as how many visits originate from a certain geographic area may be helpful.
With Our Service Providers and Vendors: Disclosure of your non-public information may also occur where we employ third-party companies and individuals to facilitate our Site (e.g., without limitation, improvement of the Site's features and user account authentication), to provide services on our behalf, or to assist us in analyzing how the Site is being used. These third parties may have access to your personal information only to perform these tasks on our behalf.
Under Special Circumstances: At times, we may disclose information about you to law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal processes (such as subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of DocSpot or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity that might be illegal or unethical. We also reserve the right to disclose non-public information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our Terms of Service.
Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy
In the event that DocSpot is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our DocSpot users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.
Where prohibited by law, children under the age of 18 are not eligible to use this Site unsupervised.
