Linxup understands and respects your concerns about the use of your Personal Information. We believe that you should know what information about you we collect, as well as how that information is used, maintained, and, in some cases, shared. The following sets forth our privacy practices and policies.
Throughout this Policy, we refer to the term "Personal Information." "Personal Information" is data which identifies, describes, is associated with, or could be linked to an individual, such as a name, email address, birthdate, postal address, telephone number, driver's license, SSN or government-issued identification number, credit card number, or the like.
Personal Information does not include anonymous or aggregated data that can no longer be used to identify a specific person, even if combined with other data. Also, some of our customers are businesses, companies, institutions, or other entities rather than individuals. We do not consider Business Information, such as title, employer's name, work email, work phone number, work address, and other similar business information, to be Personal Information.
As described in greater detail below, we will store and use Personal Information about you, including information about who you are, where your wireless device is located at particular points in time, and where and when you browse on our website in order to provide our services to you and to continually improve the quality of our services and this website. Such information may be uploaded to our servers, to be used (generally in an anonymous format) to monitor the status of the communication network and data processing systems.
We will not sell or disclose to unaffiliated third parties without your consent your location and route information that we collect during your use of our services, except as otherwise provided in this policy. However, from time to time we will disclose, and may sell, to unaffiliated third parties other Personal Information that we collect about you, including information that we collect through your registration to be a customer, your participation in one of our promotions, or your request to us or one of our partners for information about our services.

California Privacy Rights
If you are a California resident, you may have certain rights with respect to your personal information including the following rights:
- the right to “opt-out” of Linxup’s sale of your personal information to any third parties. (For our purposes, the word “sale” means any “selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic means, a consumer's personal information by the business to another business or a third party, for monetary or other valuable consideration”. This means that, for example, a sale can happen whenever an application runs ads, or makes statistical analyses on the traffic or views, or simply because it uses tools such as social network plugins and the like.);
- the right, with some exceptions, to have your personal information deleted from Linxup’s possession or control; and
- the right to receive equal service and pricing from Linxup even if you exercise any of your privacy rights.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users of the Site who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
To exercise the rights described above, you need to submit your verifiable request to us. For us to respond to your request, it’s necessary that we know who you are. Therefore, you can only exercise the above rights by making a verifiable request which must:
- provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative;
- describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We will not respond to any request if we are unable to verify your identity and therefore confirm the personal information in our possession actually relates to you.
If you cannot personally submit a verifiable request, you can authorize a person registered with the California Secretary of State to act on your behalf.
You can submit a maximum number of 2 requests over a period of 12 months.

If you are a California resident under the age of 18, and a registered user of any Site where this policy is posted, California Business and Professions Code Section 22581 permits you to request and obtain removal of content or information you have publicly posted. To make such a request, please send an email with a detailed description of the specific content or information to email@example.com. Please be aware that such a request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information you have posted and that there may be circumstances in which the law does not require or allow removal even if requested.
When Your Information Will Be Shared Or Disclosed
We routinely provide your name, billing address, and credit card information, along with the amount to be charged, to to our partner, Chase, who will use that information to processes your credit card for billing purposes.
We will comply with any subpoenas, court orders or other legal processes for any of the information about you in our possession, and we may use such information to establish or exercise our legal rights, or to defend against legal claims.
Information about you in our possession may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another provider, as well as in the unlikely event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which your personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company. Linxup does not guarantee that any entity receiving such information in connection with one of these transactions will comply with all terms of this policy.
Information on Wireless Devices
The Linxup software (and any upgrades, modifications, or additions thereto) that is factory installed or downloaded to, and resides upon your wireless device retains your manually entered account number username and password, or reads it from the device. Having your carrier change the assigned phone number for your wireless device does not change the account number we maintain with regard to that device, which will result in your device not being able to access your Linxup account established using the new phone number. If this happens, please continue to use the original number.
We may maintain your Personal Information on computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.
We maintain a variety of industry-standard security measures, including physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. For instance, we use SSL encryption technology for all credit card numbers, passwords, and registration information you provide us. No system can be completely secure, so we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your Personal Information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure.
Your Access and Consent to Use of your Personal Information
If you believe that the Personal Information that we have collected about you is incomplete, inaccurate, or not up to date, or if you would like to review and/or request changes or deletion of that information, you can contact our Webmaster.
If you do not consent or want to withdraw your consent for us to collect, use, or disclose your Personal Information as described in this Policy, please contact our Webmaster. In your request, please identify the Personal Information at issue and the collection, use, or disclosure you wish to stop.
Denying or withdrawing consent may not allow us to provide you with some or all of the products, services, or information you request.

If you are having difficulty unsubscribing from our marketing communications, please contact us at email@example.com or 855-894-8729.
