Sharing and Disclosing Your Information

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others.

Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work with affiliated businesses (such as printers) and other third parties. Due to the nature of our business model, when an affiliated business is associated with your transaction, you will share customer information that is related to such transaction with that affiliated business.

Third-Party Service Providers: We use and may use other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf such as processing credit card payments, analyzing data, providing customer service, and shipping benchers. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes.

Protection of Let’s Bench and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms of Service documents; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Let’s Bench, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Transfer of Assets: In some cases, Let’s Bench may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Let’s Bench may transfer information about you if Let’s Bench is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, Let’s Bench will notify you by email or by putting a prominent notice on our Site before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

If you post a message, your Let’s Bench username, name or alias may be visible to other users. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Let’s Bench may be required to disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as to comply with subpoenas or when your actions violate the Terms of Service. Let’s Bench may disclose personally identifiable information as Let’s Bench, in its sole discretion, believes necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy, or other unlawful activity. In such events, Let’s Bench may disclose name, street address, city, state, zip code, country, phone number, email address and company name. Let’s Bench may share aggregated demographic information with business partners.

Third Parties

This document addresses only the use and disclosure of information Let’s Bench collects from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are affiliated third party businesses, individuals or users on our site or other sites throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. We do not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

Account Security

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. Let’s Bench transmits credit card information using SSL to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. Although we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, transmitted by us, and stored by us, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. You are responsible for all actions made from your account. Do not share your password with anyone, and be sure to sign out of your account when finished using a shared computer.

Editing Account Information

You can see, review and change most of your personal information by signing onto your Let’s Bench account. As general practice, we will not manually modify your personal information. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate.

Once you make a public posting (such as a review), you may not be able to change or remove it. We may retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our Terms of Service, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.
