If you use SOUL TRAIN Network communications tools to disclose information about yourself publicly (for example, in chat rooms or online message boards made available by the SOUL TRAIN Network), other online users may obtain access to any information you provide. The contents of your online communications, as well as other information about you as an SOUL TRAIN Network user, may be accessed and disclosed in response to legal process (for example, a court order, search warrant or subpoena); in other circumstances in which SOUL TRAIN believes the SOUL TRAIN Network is being used in the commission of a crime; when we have a good faith belief that there is an emergency that poses a threat to the safety of you or another person; or when necessary either to protect the rights or property of SOUL TRAIN, the SOUL TRAIN Network or its affiliated providers, or for us to render the service you have requested.
In the event that ownership of the SOUL TRAIN Network was to change as a result of a merger, acquisition or transfer to another company, your SOUL TRAIN Network information may be transferred. If such a transfer results in a material change in the use of your SOUL TRAIN Network information, the SOUL TRAIN Network will provide notice about the choices you have to decline to permit such a transfer.
Your Choices About Your SOUL TRAIN Network Information
The SOUL TRAIN Network provides you with access to your registration and any billing or shipping information; the ability to edit this information at the My Account area; and the ability to deactivate your registration with the SOUL TRAIN Network. Additionally, some SOUL TRAIN Network services (SOUL TRAIN Search, for example) may offer you the ability to control what information is collected or used when you use these services.
You can make choices about how your SOUL TRAIN Network information may be used by the SOUL TRAIN Network to provide marketing offers to you. In order to do so, please visit the My Account area and review your SOUL TRAIN Network marketing preferences. These preferences do not apply to communications that are directly related to your registration with the SOUL TRAIN Network, or the fulfillment of a specific transaction you have requested (for example, a service advisory from the SOUL TRAIN Network, or an acknowledgment of a purchase order).
You may also choose whether the SOUL TRAIN Network’s affiliated providers receive personally identifiable SOUL TRAIN Network information. This choice does not apply to the sharing of SOUL TRAIN Network information necessary to provide you the basic functionality of the Network (for example, recognizing you as an authenticated user on affiliated providers’ Web sites or services). Additionally, the SOUL TRAIN Network may share personally identifiable SOUL TRAIN Network information with one or more of its affiliated providers when that information is necessary to carry out a specific transaction or request you make for an offering from the Network or its affiliated providers, or as otherwise specified at the time you take advantage of that particular Network offering.
