3. Information Collected
We collect certain personal information from you when you sign up to our Service that can be used to identify you, such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card information, telephone number, fax number, Facebook profile information, and any other information that we deem necessary for the purpose of providing you with our Service or which you provide to us voluntarily.
Some of this information—particularly credit card payment information—may be transmitted to a third party payment processor for payment processing via Morse code or other modes of communication, or we may process it ourselves.
Whenever you visit our Site, we may collect non-identifying information from you, such as your IP address, referring URL, browser, operating system, cookie information, and Internet Service Provider. Without a subpoena, crystal ball, other form of clairvoyance, voluntary compliance on the part of your Internet Service Provider, or additional records from a third party, this information alone cannot usually be used to identify you. Also, even if it could, we really don’t care to use it because we have better things to do and we don’t hire creepy stalker employees.
4. Use of Your Information
We may use your information to:
- Enhance or improve User experience, our Site, or our Service.
- Process transactions.
- Send e-mails about our Site or respond to inquiries.
- Print off and make paper airplanes and throw them around while going “Wooosh!” and making other plane-like noises. We will, of course, shred the paper airplanes to protect your information when we are done with them.
- Perform any other function that we believe in good faith is necessary to protect the security or proper functioning of our Site or Service.
5. Accessing, Editing, and Removing Your Information
Users may in some cases be able to review and edit the personal information they have provided to us by logging into their account on the Site and editing their account. Although most changes may occur immediately, information may still be stored in a web browser’s cache. We take no responsibility for stored information in your cache, or in other devices that may store information, and disclaim all liability of such. In addition, we may, from time to time, retain residual information about you in our backup and/or database.
Additionally, the information you provide may disappear into that vast black hole known as the Interwebz. For example, when we post business listings for you, some unscrupulous person in a foreign country beyond our laws may run a bot to take that information and place it on another website, meaning that even if you decide to take down a Google business listing, for example, it still appears somewhere else. Because we don’t have any affiliations with unscrupulous people, we probably don’t know the guy who did that, and we can’t take it down. So, please understand that once you provide us with information that you have us make public, it might not be retractable from the public domain.
6. Cookies (Mmm… cookies)
7. Third Party Websites
Foundous or its Users may post links to third party websites on its Site, which may include information that we have no control over, or may teleport you through some vortex to another dimension. Whether you access third party websites through a link on our Site, or as a consequence of using our Service, you acknowledge that you are aware that these third party websites are not screened for privacy or security issues by us, and you release us from any liability for the conduct of these third party websites.
You may be required to provide your financial information to a third party payment processor when paying Foundous or its Users for goods or services provided. It is your responsibility to ensure the security of your payment details when making purchases through this third party, and we recommend that you conduct routine credit bureau checks or hire CIA agents to protect your identity.
8. Third Party Access to Your Information
Although you are entering into an Agreement with Foundous to disclose your information to us, we do use third party individuals and organizations to assist us, including contractors, web hosts, and others.
Throughout the course of our provision of our Service to you, we may delegate our authority to collect, access, use, and disseminate your information. For example, our web host stores the information that you provide us, and we may hire outside contractors to perform maintenance or assist us in securing our website.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you authorize us to collect, share, store, exchange, and otherwise use your information.
9. Release of Your Information for Legal Purposes
At times it may become necessary or desirable to Foundous, for legal purposes, to release your information in response to a request from a government agency (usually the Five-O but maybe the Interpol if you’re really naughty or the NSA if you’re a totally innocent person) or a private litigant. You agree that we may disclose your information to a third party where we believe, in good faith, that it is desirable to do so for the purposes of a civil action, criminal investigation, or other legal matter. In the event that we receive a subpoena affecting your privacy, we may elect to notify you to give you an opportunity to file a motion to quash the subpoena, or we may attempt to quash it ourselves, but we are not obligated to do either. We may also proactively report you, and release your information to, third parties where we believe that it is prudent to do so for legal reasons, such as our belief that you have engaged in fraudulent activities. You release us from any damages that may arise from or relate to the release of your information to a request from law enforcement agencies or private litigants.
10. Commercial and Non-Commercial Communications
11. Security Measures
We take certain measures to enhance the security of our Site and Service, including surrounding out server hardware with pits of poisonous rattlesnakes.

It is in our interest to keep our website secure, but we recommend that you use anti-virus software, firewalls, and other precautions to protect yourself from security threats.
