DISCLOSURE OF PASSIVE OR USER-SUBMITTED DATA
Bill4Time engages in marketing and promotional activities with carefully screened brands, or, “Partners,” which we think will appeal to our Users. We may send or permit Partner promotions via email. You may opt out of such promotional emails or Partner mailings by emailing us at email@example.com or calling (877) 245-5484.
From time to time, Partners may also be provided with non-identifying or aggregate information indicating the demographic information of Users on our Website, buying behavior, and opportunities to market to select segments of our customer base indirectly. When we share aggregate user data, we do so in a way that it cannot be linked with a user’s Personal Information.

EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
As of May 25, 2018, Bill4Time complies with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In GDPR terminology, Bill4Time is the "data processor" and you are the "data controller". "Data subjects" are the clients that you enter into the Service.
Bill4TIme may act as a data processor to you by allowing you to store and retrieve any information that you enter into the Service, as well as running reports and analysis on that information. By default, the data stored about your data subjects may include their name, email, phone number, address, and other basic contact information. Because you have complete control over the fields in the Service, and the data you choose to enter, it is your responsibility as the data controller to ensure that you only use the Services in a GDPR compliant way.
See the Terms of Service for more details on GDPR.
The security of your information is important to us, including, but not limited to, the Personal Information collected via the Website. We have implemented security measures to protect against the loss, unauthorized access, misuse, alteration, and destruction of Personal Information under our control.
Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of such Personal Information, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration. Further, while we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent “hackers” or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining this information.
As part of securing personal data stored on our servers, we restrict access to Personal Information residing on those servers to Bill4Time employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve the Services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Services or the Website or by providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Services.
If a security systems breach occurs, we may post a notice on our homepage (www.bill4time.com) or elsewhere on the Website and may send email to you at the email address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. This notice paragraph applies to Users of Services and the Website.
We keep Personal Information no longer than necessary for legitimate business purposes or as required by law.
Change of Ownership
In the event of a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or transfer, or sale of all or a portion of our assets to another entity, we reserve the right to transfer all of your Personal Information, including email addresses, to that entity. We will use reasonable efforts to notify registered Users of any such transfer to an unaffiliated third party (by a posting on our homepage, or by email to your email address that you provided to us, as chosen by us at our discretion).
Policy Towards Children
We do not knowingly collect or maintain Personal Information from anyone under the age of 18, unless or except as permitted by law. If we learn that Personal Information has been collected from a user under 18 years of age on or through the Website, then we will take the appropriate steps to cause this information to be deleted. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 18 who has registered on the Website or you believe has otherwise provided Personal Information, please contact Bill4Time at email@example.com or call (877) 245-5484 to have that child’s account terminated and information deleted.
