In some instances, We may also collect the geo-location data of Your mobile or other device, including, without limitation, GPS-based, Wi-Fi-based, or cell-based location information. Even though We don’t view them as “Personal Information,” We may also collect Your internet protocol (IP) address, MAC address, or other machine or network identifiers as You access the 8gig Network. Payment card and financial institution information is collected through our third-party vendors or service providers. We do not store credit card or financial institution information.
We require registration in order for You to use certain features of the 8gig Network. As part of the registration process You will be required to provide Us with Personal Information. Some of the Personal Information that We ask You to provide is mandatory and some is voluntary. If You do not provide the mandatory information, You may not be able to use the 8gig Network or Your use may be limited to only certain portions of the 8gig Network. We reserve the right to change which parts of the Website require registration, and which do not, as We modify and update the 8gig Network.

5. Protection of the Personal Information We Gather
8gig has implemented industry-standard measures to protect the security of the Personal Information We collect via the 8gig Network. The financial partners We use to collect and process payment information are PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) certified.
Regardless of what measures are used to protect Personal Information, no one can guarantee, and We do not guarantee, that Your Personal Information is completely secure at all times. If We determine that Your Personal Information was accessed in an improper manner, We will comply with applicable laws as We understand them and will cooperate with internal investigators or law enforcement (including by possibly disclosing Your Personal Information to such investigators or law enforcement agencies).
Your Personal Information may also be accessed by anyone having the credentials You use to access the 8gig Network. Please understand that You are also responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Your Personal Information to protect it against unauthorized access or use including, without limitation, by ensuring that any credentials that enable access to the 8gig Network use strong passwords and are not shared with any third party. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, 8gig disclaims any responsibility or liability for any misuse of Your Personal Information that results from illegal, improper, negligent, malicious, or inappropriate acts or omissions of You or any third party, or from any conduct, other than willful conduct of 8gig.
8gig may retain Your Personal Information for as long as You continue to use the 8gig Network, and for as long thereafter as permitted or required by applicable law. If We delete Your Personal Information, it may still be contained on backup media or other systems until such times as such media is destroyed or overwritten, or data on such other systems are otherwise deleted.
6. Your Rights
In accordance with the applicable law, 8gig will provide You with access to Your Personal Information and, as appropriate, the right to intervene in respect of Your Personal Information. You may also be entitled to request the deletion of Your Personal Information, in which case, if 8gig, in its sole discretion, deems deletion of such Personal Information as mandatory or appropriate, 8gig may do so; provided, however, that such deletion will mean that You may no longer be permitted to engage in certain activities, and may not have any further access to records of Your use of the 8gig Network.
The 8gig Network is intended to be used only by persons 18 years of age or older and, accordingly, We restrict Your ability to use the 8gig Network or to create an account unless You can demonstrate that You are at least 18 years of age. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information or other information from or about individuals under the age of 18; provided, however, that the 8gig Network may collect information intended to verify that you are an adult over the age of 18 who is eligible to use the Company’s services. If You are under the age of 18, You should not register to use the 8gig Network.
No one under the age of eighteen (18) years of age are permitted to use the 8gig Network that requires registration with us or to create an account. If, despite this prohibition, You have registered as User or have created an account,
You or Your parent or legal guardian may request deletion of Your Personal Information. 8gig will respond to such requests whether made by You and may respond to requests made by a person who represents to Us that he or she is your parent or guardian, if 8gig does not have a good faith basis for disbelieving such representations.
7. Your Choices
If You choose (through the 8gig Network) to receive communications regarding special offers, or any other information, We may add Your Personal Information to Our email database and use (or direct Our designees to use) Your Personal Information for providing such communications to You. You may later choose to unsubscribe from receiving such communications by following the unsubscribe directions in Our communications. If You provide 8gig with inconsistent privacy preferences (for example, by indicating on one occasion that We may provide You with marketing offers and on another occasion that We may not), 8gig will endeavor to update Your privacy preferences in 8gig’s records with Your latest preference in a timely manner, but We cannot guarantee how quickly such changes will take effect.
