Hello. Your privacy is important to us at the Exotic Photo Adventures Company (“EPA”, “We”, “Us”, “Our”)  as you use our website (Website). This Privacy Policy describes Our use and sharing of personally identifiable information (“PII”– your full name, email address, or telephone number) that Users voluntarily provide to Us when they register (also known as “Registration PII”). The Term “User” refers to a Visitor or a Registered User of the Website. This Privacy Policy applies to the services offered by EPA, including any EPA branded URL and other features, and any other features, content, or applications offered from time to time by Us in connection with the Website (collectively “Services”). The Services are hosted in the United States but may include other cloud-based locations throughout the world.

The Website is a general audience site and does not knowingly collect PII from children under 13 years of age.

From time to time We may modify this Privacy Policy to reflect industry initiatives or changes in the law, our PII collection and use practices, the features of the Our Services, or technology, and such modifications shall be effective upon posting by Us on the Website. Your continued use of the Services after We post a revised Privacy Policy signifies your acceptance of the revised Privacy Policy. It is therefore important that you review this Privacy Policy regularly to ensure you are updated as to any changes. If We materially change Our practices regarding collection or use of your PII, your PII will continue to be governed by the Policy under which it was collected unless you have been provided notice of, and have not objected to, the change.

COLLECTION AND SUBMISSION OF PII AND NON-PII ON THE WEBSITES

NOTICE: EXOTIC PHOTO ADVENTURES WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH NOTICE ABOUT ITS PII COLLECTION PRACTICES

When you voluntarily provide PII to Us, We will make sure you are informed about who is collecting the information, how and why the information is being collected and the types of uses We will make of the information to the extent it is being used in a manner that differs from what is allowed pursuant to this Privacy Policy.

Services may be linked to Internet sites operated by other companies. Services may also carry advertisements from other companies. EPA is not responsible for the privacy practices of websites or other services operated by third parties that are linked to or integrated with the Services or for the privacy practices of third party Internet advertising companies. Once you leave the Website via such a link, access a third party application (such as widgets or sweepstakes) or click on an advertisement, you should check the applicable privacy policy of the third party or advertiser site to determine, among other things, how they will handle any PII they collect from you. EPA may use cookies and similar tools to customize the content and advertising you receive based on the Profile Information you have provided.

Third party Internet advertising companies may also deliver to you some of the advertisements that appear on the Services. These companies utilize certain technologies to deliver advertisements and marketing messages and to collect non-PII about your visit to or use of the Services, including information about the ads they display, via a cookie placed on your computer that reads your IP address.

How We Use Private Information

We will only use the PII you provide under this Privacy Policy in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. We may share personal information with our partners, if you have submitted such information to us, such as your email address, in obfuscated, or non-human-readable form. Our partners use this information to recognize you across different channels and platforms over time for advertising, analytics, attribution, and reporting purposes. We may send you emails related to the Our Service and your use of that Service, and regarding your account. We will not send you third-party promotional emails or newsletters without requesting your permission beforehand.

If EPA obtains PII from a third party, such as a business partner, our use of that information is also governed by this Privacy Policy.

By using the Services, you consent to receive promotional materials (e.g., newsletters) or notifications from Us. If you want to stop receiving such materials from Us, follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.

EPA employees, agents and contractors must have a business reason to obtain access to your PII. We may share your PII with those who help us manage or provide the Services’ information activities (for example, statistical analyses, data processing), or with outside contractors, agents or sponsors who help us with the administration, judging or prize fulfillment aspects of contests, promotions and sweepstakes or with the logistical nature of upcoming travel.

These outside contractors, agents or sponsors may temporarily store some information on their servers, but they may only use your PII to provide Us with a specific service and not for any other purpose. We may also provide your PII to a third party in those instances where you have chosen to receive certain information and have been notified that the fulfillment of such a request requires the sharing of your PII. We also may share your PII with Affiliated Companies if it has a business reason to do so.

As described above, We may customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive on the Website, or may work with outside companies to do so. Your non-PII and/or Profile Information may be shared with these companies so this customization can be accomplished. EPA prohibits these companies from sharing your non-PII and/or Profile Information with any third party or from using it for any other purpose. Anonymous click stream, number of page views calculated by pixel tags, and aggregated demographic information may also be shared with Our advertisers and business partners.

There may be instances when EPA may access or disclose PII, Profile Information or non-PII without providing you a choice in order to: (i) protect or defend the legal rights or property of Our Company, it’s officers, agents and employees, it’s subsidiaries and their employees, our Affiliated Companies or their employees, agents and contractors (including enforcement of our agreements); (ii) protect the safety and security of Members or members of the public including acting in urgent circumstances; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or (iv) comply with the law or legal process. In addition, if EPA sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of all or a material part of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, We may transfer your PII to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.

When a Member who is located in the European Union chooses to post Profile Information that will be publicly disclosed, that Member is responsible for ensuring that such information conforms to all local data protection laws. EPA is not responsible under the EU local data protection laws for Member-posted information nor shall We be responsible or liable for removing any information that the Member deems at a later point to be private.

How We Secure Your Private Information

EPA uses commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard PII in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. In addition, Feral uses reasonable methods to make sure that PII is accurate, up-to-date and appropriately complete. However, EPA, its subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, agents, contractors and their service providers do not represent, warrant, or guarantee that PII will be protected against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or alterations.
