Privacy & Policy
Last modified: December 26, 2018
Thanks for using our products and services ("Services"). The Services are provided by Sikademy using the name "Sikademy".
By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.
In the course of using the Services, we collect personally identifiable information, in the form of Persistent Identifiers, including IP Address. We collect and store this personal information solely for the purpose of providing support for the internal operations of our Services and our Site.
Our Services are very diverse, so sometimes additional terms or product requirements (including age requirements) may apply. Additional terms will be available with the relevant Services, and those additional terms become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services.
INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
WE WILL NOT SHARE, SELL, RENT, OR TRADE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH OTHER PARTIES EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW:
Through our terms and services, you have consented to the dissemination of this information to the third parties. Such information shall be limited to your name as provided with your account, the amount associated with the use of the account, and when any such activity took place. If you do not consent to this information, we will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of the sharing of the information.
Personal Information: We may share personal information including IP Address, for the purpose of providing support for the internal operations of our services and our site.
"Support for the internal operations of our Services and our Site" means activities necessary for the services or site to maintain or analyze its functioning; perform network communications; authenticate users or personalize content; serve contextual advertising or cap the frequency of advertising; protect the security or integrity of the user, service, or site; ensure legal or regulatory compliance; or perform other usage analytics. Through our services and site, no other personal information is collected and the persistent identifiers are not used or disclosed to contact a specific individual, including through behavioral advertising; to amass a profile on a specific individual; or for any other purpose.
Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information. We may share aggregated information that includes non-identifying information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling, and to deliver contextual advertising about other products and services.
Services Providers. We employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our services (such as maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of our Services' features), to provide the services on our behalf, or to assist us in analyzing how services are used. These third parties have access to your personal information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as Nigeria Copyright law) or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant in the manner required by the requesting entity.
We also reserve the right to disclose information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability; protect us from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; to investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; to assist government enforcement agencies; to protect the security or integrity of the Services or Site; enforce our Terms of Service; or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of us, our users, or others.
Using our services
You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.
Don't misuse our Services. For example, don't interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don't remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES
Like many websites and applications, we use ''cookies'' to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We may use ''session ID cookies'' to enable certain features of the Site or Services, to better understand how you interact with the Site and to monitor web traffic routing on the site and aggregate usage of the site and services. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Site or all functionality of the Services.
Privacy and copyright protection
Sikademy's privacy policies explain how we treat your personal data and protect your privacy when you use our Services. By using our Services, you agree that Sikademy can use such data in accordance with our privacy policies.
We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the Nigerian Copyright Act.
We provide information to help copyright holders manage their intellectual property online. If you think somebody is violating your copyrights and want to notify us, you can find information about submitting notices and Sikademy's policy about responding to notices in our Help Center.
Your content in our services
Some of our Services allow you to upload, submit, store, send or receive content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.
When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give Sikademy (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services (for example, a business ad you have added to Sikademy Store). Some Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided to that Service. Also, in some of our Services, there are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use of the content submitted in those Services. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.
We may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy. Such transfer will comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Our services may contain links to other websites, applications, and online services. If you choose to visit a third party service or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party's website, application, or online service. The fact that we link to a website, content is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites or services. These other websites or services may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other websites and services follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites and services you use.
We are concerned with the security of your personal information and are committed to taking reasonable steps to protect it from unauthorized access and use. To that end, we put in place the appropriate physical, electronic and managerial policies and procedures designed to secure Personal Information. We also continue to implement procedures to maintain accurate, complete and current Personal Information. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is one hundred percent secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored personal information (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on the site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
As Sikademy evolves, we may need to update this Policy to keep pace with changes in our Site, Software, and Services, our business, and laws applicable to us and you. We will, however, always maintain our commitment to respect your privacy. We will notify you of any material changes that impact your rights under this Policy by email (to your most recently provided email address) or post any other revisions to this Policy, along with their effective date, in an easy-to-find area of the Site, so we recommend that you periodically check back here to stay informed of any changes. Please note that your continued use of Sikademy after any change means that you agree with, and consent to be bound by, the new Policy. If you disagree with any changes in this Policy and do not wish your information to be subject to it, you will need to delete your Sikademy account.
