How We Collect Your Information
This Policy describes the information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit the SSB Website. For example, in order to post any content on the SSB Website, you must first register. During the registration process you are required to provide certain personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address and username.
Use of your Personal Information
SSB collects and uses your personal information to operate the SSB Website and deliver the services you have requested. SSB also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from SSB and its affiliates.
SSB does not sell, rent or lease its user lists to third-parties. But we may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name) is not transferred to the third-party. We may also share aggregated information that cannot be used to identify you with our clients and business partners.
SSB shares data with trusted partners to help us customize the content and advertising you see, improve our services, conduct research, perform statistical analysis, send you e-mail or postal mail, or provide user support. All such third-parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to SSB and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
SSB may share your information with any company who may purchase SSB or substantially all of our assets in the future.
SSB will only use and share your information as described in this policy.
Like most websites, SSB uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a tiny data file which resides on your computer and allows SSB to recognize you as a user when you return to the SSB Website from the same computer and browser. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the SSB Website or Services you visit.
Advertisements, promotions and offers from third-party advertisers may be provided to you while you are visiting the SSB Website. We may also use third-party advertising agencies to serve ads on our behalf or the behalf of third-party advertisers (e.g., retailers of goods or services). These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third-parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous. SSB does not have access to or control of the cookies or action tags that may be placed by the third-party advertisers. Third-party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on SSB unless you choose to share it with them.
SSB follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personally identifiable information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers (SSL) where appropriate. We also protect the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
But no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Website, you can send us an e-mail at email@example.com.
Once you become a registered user of SSB, you will receive an account, accessible by a password of your choosing. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account. You agree to immediately notify SSB of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security known to you. Your right to delete your information is subject to our records retention policies.
Children Under the Age of 16
The SSB Website is not intended for children under 16 years of age. We do not knowingly collect or store personal information from children under the age of 16. If you are under the age of 16, please do not use or provide any information on this Website or on or through any of its features, register on the Website, make any purchases through the Website, use any of the interactive or public comment features of this Website or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, or any screen name or user name you may use. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 16 without parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 16, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

To make such a request, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
Your European Economic Area “EEA” Privacy Rights
Notwithstanding the fact the information you provide to us is being processed in the United States and protected subject to this Policy and United States laws, if you are a resident of EEA, you have certain rights and protections under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) such as the right to access personally identifiable information we hold about you and you may ask that your personally identifiable information be corrected, erased or restricted in some manner. To make such a request, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
