Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

websitesdirectory.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on websitesdirectory.com’s behalf or to provide services available at websitesdirectory.com’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using websitesdirectory.com’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. In addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if websitesdirectory.com or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that websitesdirectory.com goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquiror of websitesdirectory.com may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, websitesdirectory.com will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.


Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, websitesdirectory.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when websitesdirectory.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of websitesdirectory.com, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a websitesdirectory.com website and have supplied your email address, websitesdirectory.com may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with websitesdirectory.com and its products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. websitesdirectory.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


You should also be aware that if you submit information to “chat rooms,” “forums” or “message boards” such information becomes public information, meaning that you lose any privacy rights you might have with regards to that information. Such disclosures may also increase your chances of receiving unwanted communications.
