Collection of User Information by Trademark Panda.
Based upon the nature of the Services, Trademark Panda must collect User Information which may include without limitation information pertaining to User’s trademark(s), domain name(s), website(s), social web username(s), and/or logo design(s). In all cases, Trademark Panda must collect User’s name, address, phone number and email address.

If User is a business, further User Information information regarding such business must also be collected.
Trademark Panda generally does not disclose any User Information to third parties. However, Trademark Panda will disclose information, including User Information, without notice, if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Trademark Panda, (b) protect and defend rights or property, and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of the Website users, Trademark Panda employees or the public.
Trademark Panda may occasionally contact User to provide information related to the Services User may have ordered through the Website, sought information about via the Website, or otherwise voluntarily requested to receive via a newsletter signup form on the Website. Further, Trademark Panda will add User’s name and email address to Trademark Panda’s email database upon User’s provision of same. In both cases, these communications may include messages regarding promotions, offers or contests, to conduct surveys about your opinion of Trademark Panda, its staff, performance, Services, and/or the Website.

Trademark Panda may use User Information to contact User regarding Services in which user has expressed interest. When User orders Services, Trademark Panda may send one or more email messages to User in furtherance of fulfillment of same including without limitation welcome emails and/or status or progress update emails.
If/when User orders Service(s), User must provide certain User Information as delineated herein including without limitation User’s credit card information. Trademark Panda’s use of such credit card User Information is limited to the purposes for which such User Information was collected including without limitation to bill User for Services rendered or to be rendered, or to contact User if Trademark Panda has trouble processing a payment or rendering Services, respectively.
Attorney-Client Privileged User Information, Public Information.
Based upon the nature of the Services, User’s provision of User Information regarding such Services may eventually or immediately become public information by virtue solely of operation of applicable laws.
Trademark Panda will provide User Information to Advertiser(s) for the purpose of fulfilling User’s request for Services. While communication between User and Advertiser through the Website may be considered attorney-client privileged information if such an Advertiser is also an attorney, no such privilege is created by or between User and Trademark Panda, and User is hereby required in perpetuity to never provide any information of a confidential or sensitive nature to Trademark Panda or to any third Person, as such provision of information may weaken or destroy any attorney-client privilege, at minimum, with respect to such information. Advertiser(s) who are attorneys do not share User’s privileged information with any other party, including Trademark Panda.
Trademark Panda’s information collection forms and pages comply with the US-EU Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information, including from European Union member countries. Trademark Panda has also certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement.
Trademark Panda may send User email messages that are not promotional in nature. User may not request to not receive such emails as such emails are intended to convey information of a critical nature, such as services outages and the like.
Modifying User Information.
If any of User’s User Information requires modification by User, or if User wishes to terminate service with Trademark Panda, User may request such modification or termination by email at email@example.com.
At any time, User may request from Trademark Panda, and Trademark Panda will provide to User upon verification of User’s status as User, a copy of User’s User Information held by Trademark Panda.
The Website may place small files, called ‘cookies’ onto User’s computer. Cookies are data files that websites write onto computer hard drive for record keeping purposes when you visit them. In the case of Trademark Panda, the cookie file identifies User as a unique Website user. As a convenience feature, cookies may simplify the process of recording personal information, so that, for example, users do not have to enter names, addresses or passwords repetitively. Cookies also allow users to customize some sites features.
User may program User’s browser not to accept cookies, but upon doing so, User may be unable to access some parts of the Website, and the Website will not be able to customize features according to User’s preferences, if any.
Aggregate data includes information about user traffic on the Website, such as which pages are being visited, the order in which the pages are being visited, which hyperlinks are being clicked, and how many users are visiting the Website. The Website may also log IP addresses of its users. While logging IP addresses does not collect personal information, it may provide information on the geographical location from which users access the site. This aggregate data is not used to identify individual users. Instead, it is used to identify website users as a whole, including demographic information, preferences in content and advertising, maintain quality of service, and web traffic patterns.
Trademark Panda utilizes the services of approved credit card payment processors to process payments collected by Trademark Panda. While these payment processors typically have their own safeguards in place which are at least as stringent as those of Trademark Panda’s (including Secure Socket Layer technology to encrypt transmission of sensitive information), these payment processors are prohibited by law from using User’s personally identifiable information for any purpose other than for processing User’s payment, and even then, only at User’s request.
While research shows that there is no method of transmission of information over the Internet that is 100% secure, Trademark Panda follows industry standard measures to ensure the security of User Information, during, before, and after receipt of such User Information. As such, no one, including Trademark Panda can absolutely guarantee the security of any information sent over the internet, and User understands and agrees that there may be unauthorized capturing or interference with User Information on the Website, for which Trademark Panda is responsible and for which User waives any indemnification claim or responsibility of Trademark Panda, as User understands and agrees that such activities are out of Trademark Panda’s control.
Measures to Safeguard Children.
Trademark Panda encourages parents and guardians to spend time with their children online and to be fully familiar with the sites visited by their children. At various places on the Website, Trademark Panda may ask users whether they are under the age of 18 or 13, and if so, Trademark Panda will ask for a parent’s or guardian’s consent. Trademark Panda relies on users to be truthful in responding to these questions.
Children under 18 years of age are not eligible to utilize the website. Trademark Panda does not intentionally gather or solicit personal data from or about children under 18 years of age without a parent’s or guardian’s consent.
Trademark Panda exists solely within the State of Nevada, Clark County. Regardless of where User resides or may be domiciled, or where User’s browser is physically located, User’s Utilization of the Website shall be interpreted as if to have occurred solely within the State of Nevada, Clark County, and the Website shall be deemed to have been served from and the Service(s) performed solely and wholly within the State of Nevada, Clark County, as if User had physically traveled there to obtain the Service(s).
As such, any Claim relating to or in connection with the interpretation, validity, construction, performance, breach or termination of this Agreement that cannot be resolved between the Parties is governed by Nevada law, and shall be brought in a federal or state court in Las Vegas, Nevada within one year after the Claim arises, but in no case earlier than following the fulfillment of any obligation regarding an agreement for arbitration regarding same. User consents to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of courts located in Las Vegas, Nevada as the most convenient and appropriate for the resolution of Claims relating to or in connection with the interpretation, validity, construction, performance, breach or termination of this Agreement that cannot be resolved between the Parties.
