Our use of collected data
We offer several services that do not require the opening of an account or the provision of personal information, such as X3M Search. In order to provide our full range of services, we may collect the following types of information: Information You Provide: When you register for an X3M account or any other X3M service or offering that requires registration, we will ask you to provide personal information (such as your name, email address and an account password). For certain services, such as our advertising programs, we also ask for credit card or other payment information. We store this information in an encrypted form on secure servers. We may combine the information you provide with information from other X3M services or third parties in order to serve you better and improve the quality of our services. For certain services, you have the option to indicate that you do not wish this information to be combined.

Other sites

This Privacy Policy applies only to X3M services. We have no control over sites that appear as search results, sites containing X3M applications, products or services, or links to our various services.

Examples of such purposes include: Providing our services to users, including the display of personalized content and advertisements. Monitoring, research and analysis to maintain, secure and improve our services, ensure the technical operation of our network, protect the rights or property of X3M or our users, and develop new services.

X3M processes personal information on its servers in the United States and other countries. In some cases, we process personal data on a server that is not located in your country. We may process personal data in order to provide our own services. In some cases, we may process personal data on behalf of or at the direction of third parties, such as our advertising partners.

Choice for personal data

When you register for a particular service that requires registration, we ask you to provide personal information. If we use this information in a way that differs from the purpose for which it was collected, we will ask for your prior consent. If we intend to use personal information for purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and/or specific service notices, we will provide you with an effective way to indicate that you do not wish your personal information to be used for those other purposes.
We do not collect or use sensitive information for purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and/or the additional Service Notices unless we have obtained your prior consent. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, certain features and services of X3M may not function properly if cookies are disabled in your browser.
You may choose not to provide personally identifiable information to our X3M services, but if you do, you may not be able to use those services. X3M only shares personal information with other companies or individuals outside of X3M in exceptional cases, if we have obtained your consent. We require express consent for the sharing of sensitive personal information. If we need to provide this data to our subsidiaries, affiliates, or other trusted companies or individuals for the purpose of processing personal data on behalf of X3M, we require those parties to agree to process such data in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy and other desired privacy and security measures. If we believe in good faith that access, processing, use, retention or disclosure of such data is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with any law, regulation, legal process or enforceable request from an official body, (b) enforce compliance with the applicable Terms of Use, (c) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, technical or security issues, or (d) protect the rights, property or safety of X3M, its users and the public from imminent danger to the extent permitted or required by law. If X3M is involved in a merger, acquisition, or other form of sale of all or part of its assets, we will notify you prior to the transfer of personal information and that it will be subject to a different privacy policy.
We may share portions of the non-personal information we collect with third parties, such as the number of users who searched for a particular keyword or the number of users who clicked on a particular ad. You cannot be identified from this data. If you have any further questions regarding the management or use of personal data, please contact us at the address below.

Data protection

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to data or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. This includes internal controls over our policies and security measures relating to data collection, storage and processing, as well as physical security measures to protect against unauthorized access to the systems on which we maintain personal information.

We limit access to personal information to X3M employees, contractors and agents who need it to manage, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to disciplinary action, including termination and prosecution, if they fail to comply with these obligations.

Data Integrity

X3M processes personal data only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Privacy Policy or other privacy notices applicable to specific services. We will continue to review our data collection, storage and processing policies to ensure that we only collect, store and process personal data that is necessary to provide or improve our services or that is otherwise permitted under this Policy. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal data we process is accurate, complete and current, but we rely on our users to update or correct their personal data as necessary.

Access and update of personal information
When you use the X3M services, we make a good faith effort to provide you with access to your personal information and to correct it if it is inaccurate, or to delete it at your request if retention of such information is not otherwise required by applicable law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and indicate the requested data that needs to be accessed, corrected or deleted before such requests are processed, and we may refuse to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, involve excessive technical effort, compromise the privacy of others, or are impractical in practical terms (for example, requests relating to data stored on backup tapes), or for which access is not normally required. In all cases where we allow access and correction of data, we perform this service free of charge, unless the performance of this service requires excessive effort. Some of our services have different procedures for accessing, correcting or deleting users’ personal information. We provide details about these procedures in privacy notices or frequently asked questions specific to those services.

Implementation

X3M regularly monitors compliance with this Privacy Policy. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy or X3M’s treatment of personal information, please contact us through this website.
