Privacy Policy


Thanks for using Starpoint Credit Solutions or visiting one of our websites. This policy explains the what, how, and why of the information we collect when you visit one of our websites, or when you use our Services. It also explains the specific ways we use and disclose that information. We take your privacy extremely seriously, and we never sell lists or email addresses.

THE BASICS

1. Definitions

These definitions should help you understand this policy. When we say “we,” “us,” “our,” and “Starpoint,” we are referring to Starpoint Credit Solutions, a State of Arizona limited liability company. We provide free consultations and information about building and boosting business credit via our online platform, blog, website, and email marketing, as well as paid services and assistance to business owners (the "Services").  When we say “Member,” we are referring to the person or entity that is registered with us to use the Services. When we say “you,” we are referring either to a Member or to some other person who visits any of our Websites. A “Subscriber” is a person we contact through our Services, or a person who you might choose for us to contact who will act on your behalf.  In other words, a Subscriber is anyone who has given us permission to contact them in the future. “Personal Information” means any information that identifies or can be used to identify you or a Subscriber, directly or indirectly, including, but not limited to, first and last name, email address, business name, phone number, or other demographic information. Our “Distribution List” is a list of Subscribers and all associated information related to those Subscribers (for example, email addresses).

We offer the Services via our website http://www.starpointcreditsolutions.com. This Privacy Policy applies to this specific website.  The “Website” includes the website itself, and any web pages, interactive features, applications, widgets, blogs, social networks, social network “tabs,” or other online, mobile, or wireless offerings that post a link to this Privacy Policy, whether accessed via computer, mobile device, or other technology, manner or means. While providing the Services, and as described in more detail below, we may collect Personal Information about a Website visitor, Member, person or email address on or related to a Distribution List, or Subscriber.

2. Changes

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time and from time to time. The most recent version of the Privacy Policy is reflected by the version date located at the bottom of this Privacy Policy. All updates and amendments are effective immediately upon notice, which we may give by any means, including, but not limited to, by posting a revised version of this Privacy Policy or other notice on the Website. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy often to stay informed of changes that may affect you, as your continued use of the Website signifies your continuing consent to be bound by this Privacy Policy. Our electronically or otherwise properly stored copies of this Privacy Policy are each deemed to be the true, complete, valid, authentic, and enforceable copy of the version of this Privacy Policy which were in effect on each respective date you visited the Website.

Users can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. 

(e) Web beacons: We use web beacons on our Websites and in our emails. When we send emails to Members, we may track behavior such as who opened the emails and who clicked the links. This allows us to measure the performance of our email campaigns and to improve our features for specific segments of Members. To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send.

(c) To bill and collect money owed to us by our Members. This includes sending you emails, invoices, receipts, notices of delinquency, and alerting you if we need a different credit card number.

To learn more about the steps we take to safeguard that data, see Section 9 below.

10. Safeguarding Your Information

We take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Information.

COMPLIANCE

11. We Operate in the United States

Our office is located in the United States, so your information will be stored, used, and/or processed in the United States. While the data protection, privacy, and other laws of the United States might not be as comprehensive as those in other countries, we take many steps to protect your privacy. By using our Websites, you understand and consent to the collection, storage, processing, and transfer of your information by our facility in the United States and any third parties with whom we share it as described in this policy.

12. Accuracy and Retention of Data

We do our best to keep your data accurate and up to date, to the extent that you provide us with the information we need to do so. If your data changes (for example, if you have a new email address), then you are responsible for notifying us of those changes. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as long as needed to provide you with our Services. We may also retain and use your information in order to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent abuse, and enforce our Agreements.
