SECURITY AND RETENTION
We have implemented technology and security features, as well as strict internal guidelines, to safeguard to an appropriate extent the privacy of your personal information from loss, alteration, unauthorized access or improper use. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and we will continue to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available. While we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, alteration, unauthorized access or improper use of information will never occur, we use all reasonable efforts to prevent it.
While we make every effort to ensure that your information is secure on our system and our third parties’ systems, you should bear in mind that submission of information over the internet is never entirely secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the security, integrity, availability or retention of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
Your account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. You can play an important role in keeping your personal information secure by maintaining the confidentiality of your password used on our Site. We recommend that you change your password from time to time for additional security. Please advise us immediately if there is any unauthorized use of your account by any other internet user or any other breach of security.
Only key members of our personnel have access to personal information. Backups are run to prevent loss of information and our internet servers are housed in secure facilities.
It is advisable to close your browser when you have finished your user session to help ensure that others do not access your personal information, especially if you use a shared computer or a computer in a public place.
Information may be retained in countries outside of the United States. We will ensure that any information transferred outside of the United States will be adequately protected. If information is transferred to a third party, we will ensure that it is Privacy Shield compliant. You agree to the transfer of your information.
INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
smol Inc is committed to protecting your personal information. We will not disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties without your consent except where:
smol Inc is required by law to disclose information to third parties or if smol Inc may need to share your Information when we believe in good faith that such sharing is reasonably necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding possible illegal activities or to comply with legal process;

smol Inc may provide analyses of our customers in the aggregate to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties.

We may share your Information in any other circumstances where we have your written consent.
DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected on our Services for third-party purposes, and that is why we provide the Network Advertising Initiative's "Consumer Opt-out" link, Digital Advertising Alliance's Consumer Opt-Out link, and the Google opt-out link in the THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING section. However, we do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working on Do Not Track standards, implementations and solutions.
