By submitting Personally Identifying Information to www.westencounterseast.com, you (“user” or “you”) warrant that you are an “adult” under the laws of your legal jurisdiction or that you have obtained the express permission of your parent or guardian to do so.
Children or minors are not eligible to use this site without the express permission of their parent or guardian (in many jurisdictions around the world, “minors” are persons under the age of 18 years, and in other jurisdictions, persons under the age of 21 years – please check your local laws about the age of adult status in your jurisdiction), and we ask that minors/children not submit any personal information to us unless they have obtained such permission. If you are a minor, you should not provide any personally identifying information to any site on the Internet without the knowledge and permission of your parent or guardian. By submitting personal information to us on this Website, you warrant that you are either (1) 18 years of age (21 years of age if required in your legal jurisdiction); or (2) that you have the express permission of your parent or guardian to submit personal information to us.
In rare circumstances, West Encounters East may disclose user information in the good-faith belief that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable, including without limitation to protect the rights or properties of West Encounters East (or you), or when we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing interference with our (or your) rights or properties, whether intentionally or otherwise, or when anyone else (including you) could be harmed by such activities. In addition, if West Encounters East, and/or substantially all of its assets are acquired, our user information will most likely be transferred to the acquiring party in connection with such an acquisition.
West Encounters East may also profile your activity on our Website in order accurately to provide you with information and services that correspond to your interests. We may also compile data in aggregate form so that we may better understand the users that are visiting our Website. For example, we may produce reports on the most popular search terms by collecting general search term data based on individual searches. Aggregate data is anonymous and does not contain any personal information that identifies you or any other user.
We will retain your personal information in our databases in accordance with our document management, retention and destruction policy, and applicable laws. This period may extend beyond the end of your relationship with West Encounters East, but it will be only as long as it is necessary for us to have sufficient information to respond to any issues that may arise later — for example, to prevent fraudulent activity; to protect ourselves against liability; permit us to pursue available remedies or limit any damages that we may sustain; or if we believe in good faith that a law, regulation, rule or guideline requires it.
West Encounters East may occasionally monitor and review information (including Personally Identifying Information) transmitted or received through our Website, or through telephone or email communications, for quality assurance and other purposes. For example, we must reserve the right to remove, or prohibit the transmission or receipt of any information that West Encounters East deems inappropriate, or which is in violation of any of the terms and conditions applicable to your use of our Website. During this monitoring, the information may be examined, recorded, and/or copied.
