    We may also disclose your personal information, financial information and/or demographic and usage information to law enforcement and other governmental agencies or instrumentalities for legal proceedings and the prevention of crimes, or to other third parties as may be required by law, statute or regulation.

    We may use your personally identifiable information to contact you and secure payment of amounts you owe us or others through us. If we determine that you are a minor, we may disclose your personally identifiable information to your parents and we may contact your parents to advise them of your activities and debt and seek payment from them.

    We will not provide your personally identifiable information to any third party for the purpose of their independently sending you advertising, solicitations or offers. Ambercon will disclose your personally identifiable information only as provided in this Policy. We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, such as the number of users who used one of our services or a particular feature of a service. Such information does not identify you individually.

    Demographic and Usage Information

    Usage Information: We receive and store information whenever you use any of our services. Ambercon automatically receives and records certain “traffic data” on our server logs, which may include the dates and times you used our services, usage data, your IP address, Ambercon cookie information, aspects of each service that you used or accessed, and your communications and interactions with other users of our services.

    Mobile Device Identification Information: When you connect to our services through your mobile device, if your service provider uniquely identifies the device, Ambercon will receive this information. Ambercon may use your unique mobile device identification information to present you with extended services and/or functionality. Our services may require our collection from you of the phone number for your mobile device. We may associate that phone number to the mobile device identification information and to other information we have collected from and about you; however, we will not use that number to call you for telemarketing.

    Mobile Device Physical Location: Some mobile phone service providers are required to operate a system that will pinpoint the physical location of devices that use their service. Depending on the provider, Ambercon may automatically receive this information.

    We may combine this demographic and usage information with your personal information. This type of data enables us to provide you with a more personalized user experience and determine how often customers use parts of our services, so we can make our services appealing to as many customers as possible. In addition, we may provide statistical information to our partners about how our customers collectively use our services. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their areas and our services, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal experience.

    E-mail Communications

    We may receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from us. We may also send out emails with news or promotions. If you do not want to receive e-mail from us, please adjust your preferences on our website.

    Information From Other Sources

Personal information that you provide to those sites may be sent to Ambercon, and we will use it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Our partners may have privacy practices that are different from ours (and which we do not control). We encourage you to read their privacy policies.
