This data helps us and our third party providers improve our respective product and services.
Most popular Internet browser applications will allow you to configure the browser so as not to accept cookies. However, setting your browser to reject cookies may, in certain instances, prevent you from taking full advantage of the System (or some portion thereof) and its capabilities, or cause some features of the System to function improperly or more slowly.

With Whom Do We Share Information That We Collect?
We engage service providers who may collect or receive your personal information on our behalf. Overall, the categories of recipients to which we transfer personal information, or who collect personal information on our behalf, for our business purposes include payment processors, hosting platforms, web tracking providers, data analytics providers, marketing consultants, tax processing service providers, common carriers, and package tracking services. We disclose the following categories of personal information for our business purposes: name, order information, email, phone number, address, payment information, usage information, transaction information, and device information.
These service providers will only have access to the information needed to perform these limited functions on our behalf and are typically prohibited from using the information for other purposes except as permitted by law, such as for fraud detection and maintaining their services, or upon your consent.
We do not sell, rent, or lease our user lists or the identity of individual users to third parties.
We may also disclose personal information if we become subject to a subpoena or court order, or if we are otherwise legally required to disclose information. We may also use and disclose personal information to establish or exercise our legal rights, or if we believe such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding actual or suspected illegal or fraudulent activities or potential threats to the well-being of any person.
As Implus grows and develops its business, it is possible that its corporate structure or organization might change or that it might merge or otherwise combine with, or that it or portions of its business might be acquired by, another company. In any such transactions, personal information generally is, and should be expected to be, one of the transferred business assets. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, your information may be considered a company asset that may be sold or transferred to third parties.
Any personal information you provide us when applying for a career position with Implus will be used solely to consider and act upon your application. We may retain your personal information for a period of time, but only for as long as necessary for such purposes. We may disclose your personal information to our agents for the purpose of evaluating your qualifications for the particular position you applied for, or other available positions. We may also disclose your personal information to third parties hired by us to collect, maintain, and analyze candidates for career positions.
What Choices Do You Have?
When submitting information, corresponding, making requests for information, and otherwise interacting with Implus and its representatives through or in connection with the System, you generally choose what information to supply or submit, whether you wish to receive further information, and how you may be contacted. Please take care to share only such information as is needed or that you believe is appropriate. Any promotional email we send to you will contain a link which will allow you to opt-out of receiving any further correspondence.
How Can I Opt-Out of Promotional Correspondence?
We may send you emails with promotional offers. If you would no longer like to receive information, newsletters or other promotional messages from us, please click the link at the bottom of any such email you receive from us and follow the instructions, or alternatively you may contact us at email@example.com with the word “UNSUBSCRIBE” or “REMOVE” in the subject line. Your email address will be removed from our marketing list. Please allow us a reasonable period of time to satisfy your request, as some promotions may already be in process.
How Do We Protect Information Collected About You?
Implus takes commercially reasonable measures to secure and protect information transmitted via or stored on the System. Nevertheless, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee that information that users of the System may happen to transmit or otherwise supply will be totally secure.
Any information, communications, or material of any type or nature that you submit to the Website or any mobile application by email, posting reviews, messaging, or otherwise (collectively, a “Submission”) is done at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of the System and we are therefore not responsible for any Submissions contained on the Website.
Additionally, in the event that we offer a message board or any other interactive or social-type feature on the Website, please be aware that these areas may allow you to post, and share with other users, certain messages, content, or other information. We encourage you to be wary of giving out any personal information, or any personal information of others to which you may have access, in such forums. The information you post can be collected and used by other people.
