1. The Information We Collect And Store
We may collect and store the following information when using the 3plains Service
Information You Provide. When you register an account with 3plains, we collect some personal information, such as your name, phone number, credit card or other billing information, email address, and home and business postal addresses.
Files. We collect and store the files you email, upload via Dropbox, and physically mail electronic data via CD, USB key, or other forms of storage media. We may keep the files in your file in our archived data.
Log Data. When you use the Service, we automatically record information from your Device, its software, and your activity using the Services. This may include the Device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, the web page visited before you came to our website, information you search for on our website, locale preferences, identification numbers associated with your Devices, your mobile carrier, date and time stamps associated with transactions, system configuration information, metadata concerning your Files, and other interactions with the Service.
Cookies. We also use “cookies” to collect information and improve our Services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your Device. We may use “persistent cookies” to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Service. We may use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service, and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Service. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of the Service.
2. How We Use Personal Information
Personal Information. In the course of using the Service, we may collect personal information that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information is or may be used: (2a) to administer your use of the Service, (2b) to personalize and improve your experience, and (2c) to provide software updates and product announcements. If you no longer wish to receive communications from us, please follow the “unsubscribe” or "remove" instructions provided in any of those communications, or update your account settings information.
3. Information Sharing and Disclosure
Your Use. We will display your Personal Information in your 3plains account, on your website, and elsewhere on the Service according to the preferences you set in your account. Any information you choose to provide should reflect how much you want others to know about you. Please consider carefully what information you disclose. You can review and revise your profile and website information at any time. We may also share or disclose your information with your consent, for example, if you use a third-party application to access your account (see below). Through certain features of the Service, you may also have the ability to make some of your information public. Public information may be broadly and quickly disseminated.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement Requests; Protection of 3plains's Rights. We may disclose to parties outside 3plains files stored in your 3plains and information about you that we collect when we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with a law, regulation, or compulsory legal request; (b) protect the safety of any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of 3plains or its users, or (d) to protect 3plains’s property rights. If we provide your 3plains files to a law enforcement agency as set forth above, we will remove 3plains’s encryption from the files before providing them to law enforcement. However, 3plains will not be able to decrypt any files that you encrypted prior to storing them on 3plains.
Non-private or Non-Personal Information. We may disclose your non-private, aggregated, or otherwise non-personal information, such as usage statistics of our Service.
4. Changing or Deleting Your Information
If you are a registered user, you may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information provided in your registration or account profile by changing your “account settings.” If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may update or delete it by making the change on your 3plains account. In some cases, we may retain copies of your information if required by law.
5. Data Retention
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with services. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you with services, you may ask us to delete your account. We may retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Consistent with these requirements, we will try to delete your information quickly upon request.
The security of your information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) to safeguard your information, including your credit card number, during online transactions. For your protection, never put your credit card number or other sensitive information in unencrypted e-mail. In the extremely unlikely event that we ever do suspect a customer's credit card number has been intercepted, we will immediately notify the customer.
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
