PRIVACY POLICY

The privacy of our members/subscribers and those individuals who visit our Website is important to us. To help you understand our privacy policy and to better protect your privacy, this Privacy Policy explains our online information retention and use practices and how your online information may be collected, used and shared. Please note that this Privacy Policy applies to information obtained through this Website only. By using this Website, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Notice.

"Personally Identifiable Information" means personally identifiable information including first and last name, postal address, email address, telephone number, mobile telephone number, Social Security number and any other information that permits a specific individual to be contacted physically or online, as well as an individual's birthday, height, weight or hair color that is collected by us online and stored in a personally identifiable information form. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we collect the following Personally Identifiable Information when you become a member: first and last name, postal address, email address, telephone number (including mobile telephone number). As a subscriber or a member, you may populate the Website with additional information that may be used for contacting and matching purposes. If you decide to subscribe as a member, we will ask you to use a third-party vehicle of payment that does not require you to provide us with credit card or other payment information necessary to complete your order.

We use the Personally Identifiable Information you provide us to populate content on this Website, personalize your experience in connection with the Services provided on this Website, contact you about your membership and membership benefits, answer questions and fulfill requests you may have regarding our Services and your membership, identify or prevent the dissemination of illegal activities on this Website, enforce the Terms of Use, and verify the accuracy of provided content.

We also may use Personally Identifiable Information to: inform you about important information regarding the Services available on this Website; maintain security; comply with laws, regulations, and other legal process and law enforcement requirements; allow you to utilize features within our Website; and verify your identity and/or location (or the identity or location of your clients, invitees and licensed employees) in order to allow access to your accounts as well as changes to terms, conditions, and policies and/or other administrative information. We do not rent or sell Personally Identifiable Information to third parties for any purpose, including direct or indirect marketing.

We may disclose Personally Identifiable Information to third parties to investigate or prevent potential or actual illegal activities, fraud, violations of the Terms of Use, or other activities on this Website deemed unsuitable. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties to assist us in providing you with the Services to which you subscribe and use on this Website; if we do, we also require such third parties to protect the Personally Identifiable Information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy and not use the Personally Identifiable Information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for us. In addition, we may transfer your Personally Identifiable Information to a third party in the event we are acquired by or merged with that third party.

When you visit our Website pages, we also may collect non-Personally Identifiable Information, i.e., any other information that does not reveal your specific identity or does not directly relate to an individual, such as information collected through computer technology (e.g., browser and operating system information, the domain name of your Internet service provider, cookies and pixel tags, etc.), demographic information and other non-Personally Identifiable Information provided by you. In addition, we may collect your area code, zip code and residence or business location, as well as your activities on our website.

To prevent unauthorized access, we have implemented certain security measures to safeguard your Personally Identifiable Information when you become member.

California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

Because we value your privacy, we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We will, therefore, with the exceptions identified above, not distribute your Personally Identifiable Information to outside parties without your consent.

A member can review and change his or her Personally Identifiable Information on our Website. If a member has difficulties reviewing or making changes to his or her Personally Identifiable Information, he or she can contact DealRockit by clicking the "Contact" button at the bottom of DealRockit' Website homepage to be linked to a "Contact Form" and filling out the requested information in that Contact Form.

Children's Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

Access Outside the United States

In May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), a European privacy law, became effective. The GDPR imposes new rules on any companies, government agencies or other organizations that offer goods and services to individuals in the European Union (EU) or collect and analyze information related to EU residents. The GDPR applies to entities located inside and outside of the EU.

If you are accessing the DealRockit Website from a location outside of the United States, you will be connecting to servers located within the United States where the level of protection provided by data privacy laws are not as strict as other jurisdictions such as the EU. Users of the DealRockit Website who may access personal information you may provide to the Website may be located in the United States and in other countries that do not provide a level of data protection required by other jurisdictions including the EU. If you choose to access or use the DealRockit Website, you consent to the transfer, use and disclosure of information in accordance with this privacy policy and subject to applicable privacy laws of the United States, the GDPR and the privacy laws of other applicable jurisdictions.

If you reside in the UK or in the European Economic Area ("EEA") , you have certain rights relating to the Personally Identifiable Information we hold in accordance with and subject to certain privacy laws. You have the right to check whether we hold Personally Identifiable Information you have provided us about you and to access such data. In addition, you have the right to erase your Personally Identifiable Information or correct Personally Identifiable Information about you that is inaccurate or ask us to do the same. Also, you have the right to be provided a copy of your Personally Identifiable Information we maintain, the right to provide your Personally Identifiable Information to another controller where technically feasible. Finally, you may request the restriction of processing concerning your Personally Identifiable Information. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact DealRockit by clicking the "Contact" button at the bottom of the DealRockit Website homepage to be linked to a "Contact Form" and fill out your request in that Contact Form.

When it comes to your privacy, the DealRockit platform is designed with your privacy in mind. The DealRockit platform does not monetize your Personally Identifiable Information. DealRockit does not:

  • store payment information;
  • create and store Personally Identifiable Information or content; or
  • hide behind contact requests to remove or delete information.

All personal information we receive and store about you is provided by you - the user or your designee. In addition, DealRockit provides each user the capability to input his/her personal information, monitor that personal information and correct any personal information that is listed incorrectly.

Throughout the DealRockit Website, you are provided delete or edit buttons for your convenience at any time to remove or correct any listing or personal information.

DealRockit does not take your listing information lightly. Throughout DealRockit's Businesses for Sale and Funder Direct listing pages, you will notice that each lister is offered hide button features to use at their discretion. As we emphasize in the FAQ: "Buyers/investors need to be aware that sellers/capital seekers have hide button features available to them for privacy and anonymity."

The DealRockit Website may contain links to third party websites. These third-party websites, as well as additional websites accessible through them, may have their own privacy statements or policies. We have no responsibility or liability for these statements or policies or for any Personally Identifiable Information that may be collected by these third-party websites. Please check any statements and policies residing on these websites before you submit any Personally Identifiable Information on these websites or use their services.
