“Information” means any and all information we receive from or about you. This may include (without limitation) information collected from you directly or indirectly, manually or otherwise, via electronic, automatic or by other means. Such information may include information:
(i) which you provide during your use of our services (the “Services”) or our website (the “Site”)
(ii) collected about you, your business and the technology you are using
(iii) which we receive about you from third parties or other sources

- “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” means Information that does not personally identify you.
- “Personally Identifiable Information” means information that is personally identifiable, such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses and phone numbers, as well as other non-public information that is associated with the foregoing.
Acceptance of Terms
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information may be collected, processed and used in accordance with applicable law, for any and all purposes we deem fit. Generally, the information Empowerists collects is used only for Empowerists’ own internal purposes. For example, to improve the Services and the Site, to improve Empowerists’ marketing and promotional efforts, to improve customer service and to improve Empowerists’ content and Site offerings. It may also be used by Empowerists to contact you to provide you with information Empowerists believes may be useful to you. Empowerists believes that these uses allow it to improve the Services and our Site and to better tailor them to meet customers’ needs.
Use and Retention of Personally Identifiable Information
In general, Personally Identifiable Information you submit to, or that is obtained by us is used:
- to create and manage the business relationship
- to provide you with the Services
- to improve our services
- to communicate with you about our services
- to respond to requests that you make
- to bill you and manage your account
- to further new services or products
- to operate, maintain and improve the features, functionality and performance of our Site
Furthermore, we may create anonymized information from Personally Identifiable Information by excluding information that makes the information personally identifiable to you. We may use this anonymized information for internal purposes, such as analyzing usage patterns. This is for us to be able to the Services and we also reserve the right to use and disclose such anonymized information at our discretion to third parties. Such anonymized information may be deemed to be Non-Personally Identifiable Information and used accordingly.
Empowerists shall retain personal information for the period of time necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the personal information was collected and in accordance with Empowerists’ document retention policies.
Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information
However, we may provide your Personally Identifiable Information to business partners, third-party service providers and suppliers who work on our behalf (a) to provide you with some of the Services, (b) to help us communicate with our customers and (c) to help us with our business and informational needs. However, we do not grant these business partners, service providers and suppliers any independent right to use this information except to help us provide the Services or for our legitimate business interests.
We may disclose Personally Identifiable Information we have collected from and about you, if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary (a) to comply with relevant laws, (b) to respond to court orders, subpoenas, or warrants served on us, (c) to respond to an emergency, or (d) to protect and defend Empowerists’ rights or property.
Security and Confidentiality
Empowerists has put in place commercially reasonable protections and procedures to safeguard and secure the Personally Identifiable Information we collect. However, even with these measures, we cannot guarantee the security of Personally Identifiable Information. By using our Services or our Site, you acknowledge and agree that we make no such guarantee.
Correcting Your Personally Identifiable Information
If we hold Personally Identifiable Information about you, you may request that we correct, amend, or delete that information where it is inaccurate, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to an individual’s privacy in the case in question, or where the rights of persons other than the individual requesting access would be violated. Please contact us if you need assistance in updating or reviewing your information.
