6. Do Not Track
Semantics3 does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising, and therefore does not respond to the Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you.
7. Sharing of personal information
(a) In order to provide or communicate our Services, we use third party vendors to maintain an internal record of customers, payment processing, email server, cloud server, and other providers that facilitate our Services to you and for internal purposes.

8. Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
The Federal Trade Commission enforces the COPPA, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. The Site is a general audience site not directed to children under the age of 13, and the Company does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without obtaining parental consent.
9. Data location and security
The Company’s servers are based in the Unites States, so your personal information is hosted and processed by Semantics3 in the United States. Semantics3 makes best efforts to follow industry standards of physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to maintain the integrity and security of information that the Company collects and stores. However, Semantics3 cannot make an absolute guarantee that information about you will not be accessed, viewed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards, given that there is always a risk your personal data may be viewed and used by unauthorized third parties as a result of collecting and transmitting your data through the internet. Semantics3 will take any reasonable and necessary steps to remediate any compromise of data security that may put your personal information at risk. The Company strongly recommends that you do not disclose your log-in information, password, and API secret to anyone. Please remember that you control what personal information you choose to provide while using the Services, and you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any sensitive passwords or personal information.
