MAUGE INC (referred to as “MAUGE”, “we, “our” or “us”, as the context may require) values our relationships with our users, guests, and customers, and we respect your privacy. We are committed to protecting your Personal Information (as defined herein) through compliance with this privacy policy ("Policy"). This Policy describes the types of information we may collect from you (referred to as “customer”, “User”, or “you”, as the context may require) when using our websites and portals located at MAUGE.COM, other websites and portals we own and operate (collectively, “Sites”), MAUGE™ mobile application, other MAUGE applications and online services that reference this Policy (together with the Sites, “MAUGE Offerings”) and our policies and practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and sharing that information.

The Policy applies to any MAUGE Offerings we provide to you. Please read this Policy carefully. This Policy does not apply to any products, services, websites, experiences, applications, events and content that are offered by third parties or have their own privacy policy or notice. You should read external website privacy notices carefully and check back frequently to ensure you understand each current policy.

If you do not want to agree to these Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy, and/or Dispute Resolution Policy, you must not access or use the MAUGE Offerings. This Policy may be updated by MAUGE from time to time by posting a new version on the Sites. It is our practice to post any new version we make to our Policy on this page, and with a posting to notifications by pull down menu for mobile applications, that this Policy has been updated. Use of any of the Sites or other MAUGE Offerings following such changes will be deemed acceptance of such changes. The date this Policy was last revised is identified at the bottom of this Policy (see Last Updated Date below). Our business develops and changes. You should check this page frequently to ensure you understand our current Policy.

The Policy applies regardless of User’s method of access (i.e. computer browser, Outlook application, Android or IOS devices, etc.). The Sites are operated in the United States, and please be on notice that any information you provide to us or your use of the Sites will be transferred to and through the United States. Your use of the Sites is your consent to such transfer and consent and awareness that the United States may not provide the same types or levels of protection as required by the laws, codes and/or regulations in other countries.

Data Security and How We Protect Your Information

We have implemented and adopted appropriate commercially reasonable measures designed to secure your Personal Information against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction. All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers behind firewalls. Any Personal Information or payment-related information exchanged will be protected using encrypted, protected with digital signatures, and transported over an SSL secured communication channel.

No transmission of information via the internet or any electronic commerce is completely secure. Although we use appropriate commercially reasonable efforts and standards to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of the Personal Information transmitted to our Sites and through our MAUGE Offerings. Any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk and you should consider taking pro-active steps to secure and protect yourself, your Personal Information and all information online and with any electronic commerce. You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential and we will not ask for your password in any correspondence between us. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures of mobile applications or on the Sites. We reserve the right to contact or notify you about any information regarding this Policy, security, our services, the Sites, and other MAUGE Offerings electronically along with other means of notification. Use of the MAUGE
Offerings involves third-party hardware (i.e. smart phones and other mobile devices) as well as software integrated into the service or third-party service providers or carrier or platforms (i.e. Google Drive, Box or Dropbox, Google Play, App Store). MAUGE does not control third-parties. User’s information will be handled by such third-party and MAUGE cannot assure User that such information will be handled in a secure manner.

Compliance and Related Information Regarding Minors

No one under the age of 13 may provide any Personal Information to our Sites and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13 (or 18 without parental/guardian consent). If you are under the age of 13, do not use or provide any Personal Information on our sites or provide any information to us about yourself, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, screen name or user name you may use. If we learn we have collected or received Personal Information from a child under the age of 13 (or under the age of 18 without parental/guardian consent), we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any Personal Information from or about a child under the age of 13 (or 18 without parental/guardian consent), please contact use at our contact information specified below.

Additional Users

When a customer requests that an individual be given access to customer’s account, MAUGE will send the potential individual user an invitation to register to access the site. By requesting that access be given to an individual user, customer represents and warrants to MAUGE that customer has an existing business relationship with such additional user sufficient to avoid liability under any law that applies to unsolicited email. Customer will be deemed to be the sender of any such email (or other electronic communication) and MAUGE will be deemed to merely be a service provider facilitating Customer’s sending of the email (or other electronic communication).

Email Communications

MAUGE may periodically communicate with User via email, including by emails that verify password and username information, or which provide updates, service announcements, administrative messages, and/or other important information about the Services. These emails are tied to our services and other MAUGE Offerings and contain important information about our services and other MAUGE Offerings or User’s use of them. Such communications can only be unsubscribed from by cancelling User’s account.
Correcting or Updating Personal Information

If User’s Personal Information changes, or if User has a reason to believe that User’s Personal Information maintained by MAUGE is incorrect, User may contact MAUGE and MAUGE will accommodate such reasonable requests for such changes.

MAUGE will use commercially reasonable efforts to timely make any changes request by Users. Many such changes are accomplished using batch processing (i.e. collecting a number of similar change requests and making all such changes at once), so the changes may not be immediately effective but may take thirty (30) days or longer. If User requires an immediate change to User’s Personal Information and User is unable to make such a change using the available Sites resources and user profile on the application, please contact MAUGE at CREATIVITY@MAUGE.COM.

Retention of Personal Information

MAUGE keeps your Personal Information for as long as necessary to provide services, the relevant purposes described in this Policy or as we otherwise notify you should there be an update to this Policy (under Introduction and Acceptance of this Policy), and as may be required by law (including for our tax, audit, and accounting purposes).

Deactivating Account, Connecting, and Unsubscribing

A User may deactivate their account at any time by contacting MAUGE at CREATIVITY@MAUGE.COM.

By agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy, User further agrees that MAUGE may connect (i.e. stitch) any of User’s authenticated and non-authenticated browsing sessions.

For questions about User’s privacy rights, please contact MAUGE at CREATIVITY@MAUGE.COM. Please note, it may not be possible for User to opt out of receiving certain communications (such as those related to User’s account information or system status) or to halt the sharing of certain information; User’s only option will be to terminate User’s account.
