4. Sharing and Disclosure of Information


We may share or disclose your information to the following categories of third parties and for the following reasons:

• To affiliates, strategic partners, agents, third party marketers or other unaffiliated parties who are offering products or services that we believe may be of interest to you or who require your personal information for research, administrative and/or internal business purposes. These parties may use this personal information to contact you with an offer or advertisement related to a product or service, or they may use such personal information for their own research, administration or business purposes. When we share your personal information with these parties, we seek to ensure that the party with whom we share the personal information will maintain it securely and in accordance with the applicable laws. 
 
• To unaffiliated third-party service providers, agents or independent contractors who help us maintain our Site and provide other administrative services to us (including, but not limited to, providing service, maintaining and analyzing data, sending customer communications on our behalf, and entry collection, winner selection and prize fulfillment for contests, sweepstakes and other promotions). We seek to ensure that these unaffiliated third parties will not use the personal information for any other purpose than to provide the administrative services for which they are responsible. Because such unaffiliated third-party service providers that help us administer our Site will have access to users’ personal information, if you do not wish for our unaffiliated third-party service providers to have access to your personal information, please do not register or submit any personal information to us.
 
• To comply with the law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the requirements of law or comply with legal process served on us, protect and defend our rights or property, or act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our end users.

• To third parties as part of any direct or indirect corporate reorganization process including, but not limited to, mergers, acquisitions, and sales of all or substantially all of our assets.
 
• To track and analyze non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical personal information from our visitors and customers and provide such personal information to third party data analytics providers.
 
• To protect against potential fraud, we may verify with third parties the information collected through the Services. In the course of such verification, we may receive personal information about you from such services. In particular, if you use a credit card or debit card to purchase services with us, we may use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your card information and address matches the information that you supplied to us, and that the card has not been reported as lost or stolen.

Our websites contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other sites. If you have any questions about how these other sites use your information, you should review their policies and contact them directly.

11. Security


We implement reasonable security measures to ensure the security of your personal information. Please understand, however, that no data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you understand that any information that you transfer to us is done at your own risk. If we learn of a security systems breach we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Services or providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of the Services. We may post a notice via our websites if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.

12. Data Retention


We retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected, unless a longer retention period is required by applicable law.

13. International Data Transfers


If you choose to provide us with personal information, please understand that such information may be transferred to the US and that we may transfer that information to our affiliates or to other third parties, across borders, and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are visiting from the EU, Switzerland or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from US law, please note that you are transferring your personal information to the US and other jurisdictions which may not have the same data protection laws as the EU and Switzerland. We put in place appropriate contractual, operational, procedural and technical measures in order to ensure the protection of your personal information. To find out more information about these measures, please contact us using the contact information provided below.

15. How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals


At this time, our website does not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include “Do Not Track” instructions.

16. Dispute Resolution


In the event of any controversy, claim, action or dispute arising out of or related to your use of the Services (including any transactions through or with the Services), or the breach, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of this privacy policy or any part of it, except for disputes that qualify for small claims court or those related to an intellectual property (“dispute”), the party asserting the dispute shall first try in good faith to settle such dispute by providing written notice to the other party (by first class or registered mail) describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) of the dispute and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond to or settle the dispute.

Notice shall be sent to:
(1) Us at: High Peaks, ATTN: Privacy, 1225 Lincoln Street, Columbia, SC 29201; and
(2) You at: your last-used billing address or the billing and/or shipping address used upon check-out on this website, or in your user account if applicable.

You agree that the dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent which must be satisfied prior to initiating any litigation or filing any claim against the other party.

If any dispute cannot be resolved by the above dispute resolution procedure, you agree that the sole and exclusive jurisdiction for such dispute will be decided by binding arbitration on an individual basis. Arbitration on an individual basis means that you will not have, and you waive, the right for a judge or jury to decide your claims, and that you may not proceed in a class, consolidated, or representative capacity. Other rights that you and we would have in court will not be available or will be more limited in arbitration, including discovery and appeal rights. All such disputes shall be exclusively submitted to Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (www.jamsadr.com) for binding arbitration under its rules then in effect in the New York, New York area, before one arbitrator to be mutually agreed upon by both parties.

The arbitrator, and not any Federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these terms, including any claim that all or any part of this privacy policy is void or voidable.

17. Changes to this Policy


We reserve the right to change this Policy from time to time. When we do, we will also revise the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Policy. If we make material changes to the Policy, we will notify you by placing a prominent notice on our website and/or by sending you an email at the email address we have on file for you.
