By providing us with your Data and using our Service you consent to any such transfer of Data outside of your country of origin, in 3LP’s sole discretion.
3.2 Control and Access to Data: 3LP respects both the need for you to control your Data and our users’ need for sharing it with us. 3LP is diligent in ensuring that it has implemented appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to prevent the unauthorized or unlawful use of your Data, and to prevent any accidental loss, destruction, or damage to such information.
3.3 Use of Data Collected: 3LP is the sole owner of the Data (i.e. as represented by the aggregate content and arrangement of the information collected about you on our Service) and will not sell, rent or share the information collected in a manner that differs from what is disclosed in this Policy. 3LP collects this information in order to:

4. Security of Information
4.1 Any information sent by you to 3LP through Internet, e-mail, or through our Service may not be secure and is therefore done on a non-confidential basis and at your own risk. Once such information is received, 3LP takes appropriate security safeguards to prevent its unauthorized use, alteration, disclosure or destruction. These safeguards include periodic review of our internal processes, and benchmarking of same with industry best practices.
4.2 Access to PII is restricted to 3LP employees, contractors, and agents on a need to know basis.

The maintenance of data integrity is a joint collaborative effort between 3LP and our users.
5.2 3LP may delete data, from time to time, upon the request of an individual user. 3LP requires that a user present proper credentials for authentication before honoring all such requests.

If you are a parent of a child under the age of 13 and you suspect that your child has registered on our Service, then you can request that any information provided be immediately deleted from 3LP’s database(s) by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by contacting 3LP via the contact information provided above. 3LP will promptly respond to any such notification, and upon verification, immediately delete the information in question.
7.2 No one under the age of majority, as described above, should attempt to register on our Service, or otherwise provide 3LP any PII including name, email address, phone number, physical address or any similar information. The protection of children on the Internet is an important public policy concern—one that 3LP is committed to supporting.
Because we are committed to protecting our users’ PII, 3LP conducts periodic reviews of our internal processes to ensure that we remain in compliance with this Policy. We will cooperate with the appropriate authorities to resolve any user complaints regarding the transfer of PII. 3LP will initially try to resolve the complaint with the individual user. Formal complaints should be sent to 3LP using the contact information provided above.
