In addition to the uses described above, we and our Contractors may use Collected Information to analyze and improve the content, materials, and services that we make available on the Service, to notify you of changes made to the Service, to evaluate user needs and improve the Service content, to send you promotional materials, and support our continuing efforts to offer users the information and services we think they want most. If you contact us for support or assistance, we may use Collected Information to provide service and support to you. Finally, we may use Collected Information for any other purpose with your consent.
4. With whom do we share the information we collect?
We may share Collected Information with certain of our Contractors (e.g., our web hosting provider) in order to provide the Service to you. We and our Contractors may store Collected Information in the United States, or we may transfer it to, and store it within, other countries. We may also share Collected Information with our subsidiaries, affiliates, and our business and marketing partners in furthering our mission as an organization or delivering the content, materials, and services available on or through the Site to you. We and our Contractors may also produce reports on Site traffic, usage patterns, and similar data generated from Collected Information, and we may share these reports with our subsidiaries, affiliates, and our business and marketing partners.
We may disclose Collected Information to the proper authorities if we become subject to a subpoena or court order or if we believe that we are otherwise legally required to disclose such information. We may also use and disclose information about you to establish or exercise our legal rights, to assert and defend against legal claims, or if we believe such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding actual or suspected illegal or fraudulent activities or potential threats to the physical safety or well-being of any person.

Finally, we may disclose Collected Information to other third parties with your consent.
5. What choices do you have?
When corresponding with ParkerGale or our representatives, or when making a request for information or otherwise interacting with us or others through the Service, you choose what information to supply, what questions or comments to submit, whether you wish to receive further information, and by what method of communication such information should be delivered. Please take care to share only such information as is needed or that you believe is appropriate. You are under no obligation to provide us with personally identifiable information, but without it we may not be able to provide you the products or services you request. You may contact us as indicated below if at any time you would like to ask us about our data collection and information security practices.

7. Interactive areas.
We may provide areas within the Service that allow users to post commentary and other materials. If we do, these interactive areas, such as discussion forums, are intended to enhance the user experience and build a healthy community around the products and services available through the Service. ParkerGale is not liable for information posted in interactive areas of the Service. You acknowledge that, should you participate in such interactive areas, the information you voluntarily post about yourself and third parties in such areas might be accessed, collected and used by third parties other than ParkerGale or our Contractors.
9. Location of this Service.
The Service is hosted and operated in the United States. We and our Contractors may, in our effort to provide the Service, store Collected Information in the United States, or we may transfer it to, and store it within, other countries.
Those who access or use the Service from jurisdictions outside the United States do so at their own choice and risk and are solely responsible for compliance with local law. If you are not a resident of the United States, you acknowledge and agree that we may collect and use your personal information outside your home jurisdiction, and that we may store your personal information in the United States or elsewhere. Please note that the level of legal protection provided in the United States or other non-European countries from which you may access our Site may not be as stringent as that under European Union privacy standards or the privacy laws of some other countries, possibly including your home jurisdiction.
10. Communication with children.
We recognize the unique privacy concerns regarding children. We are committed to carefully protecting privacy where children are involved no matter the point of contact. In particular, our intention is to fully comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Per COPPA guidelines, we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian is made aware that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information through any point of contact, we ask to be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will delete the information about the child referenced from our files.
11. Your California privacy rights.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 provides California residents with the right to receive: (a) information identifying (names and addresses) any third party(ies) to whom we may have disclosed, within the preceding calendar year, your personal information for that third party’s direct marketing purposes; and (b) a description of the categories of personal information disclosed. To obtain such information free of charge, please Contact Us.
