How QuikPiq Uses your Information
If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the QuikPiq Site, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the site and other QuikPiq products.
Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose online (in photos, in comments, your votes, within your public profile page, etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others. Your First and Last name, derived from your Twitter or Facebook accounts, (not your email address) is displayed on the QuikPiq site as your profile and with any of your activities on the site (uploading polls, submitting comments, voting). Other Users can contact you through messages and comments. As a logged in user, your votes are not anonymous. Your votes are collected and tracked by QuikPiq. If you are not logged into the QuikPiq site, your votes may remain anonymous. However, as an anonymous user, you're not allowed to submit comments or create polls. Any photos, comments, votes and other content that you submit to this site may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by the general public.
We do not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages of third parties without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt in or opt out. We may, however, use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as news on updates, or QuikPiq promotions).
We use both your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, etc) to improve the quality and design of the sites and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing User preferences and trends.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Our users are our most important stakeholders, therefore we protect your information and use it wisely. We do not rent nor sell your personal information to anyone, except for situations below:
Third Party Service Providers
We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, including, without limitation, hosting and maintenance, customer relationship, community website, database storage and management, and direct marketing campaigns. We will share your personally identifiable information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services, and only pursuant to binding contractual obligations requiring such third parties to maintain the privacy and security of your data.
These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
Information you make Public
When you post a poll, or a comment through QuikPiq, information about you, including user profile information, may be visible to other users.

You may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. We are not responsible for any messages you receive from these other parties.
In the event of Merger, Sale or Bankruptcy
In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if QuikPiq, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that QuikPiq goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, customer information would be one of the assets that is transferred to or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of QuikPiq may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

QuikPiq cooperates with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with the law.
