Any such termination or suspension may be implemented without notice to User.

NO SPAM

AlternativeModel may, in its discretion, terminate Site access of any User that AlternativeModel believes, in its sole discretion, is Transmitting or is otherwise connected with any spam or unsolicited bulk e-mail. In the event a User’s access is terminated for the reason described in the preceding sentence, and because damages are often difficult to quantify in such circumstances, if actual damages cannot be reasonably calculated, then User agrees to pay AlternativeModel liquidated damages equal to $5 for each piece of spam or unsolicited bulk e-mail Transmitted from or otherwise connected with such User’s access to or use of the Site; otherwise, User agrees to pay AlternativeModel actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated.

In the event a User’s access is terminated for the reason described in the preceding sentence, and because damages are often difficult to quantify in such circumstances, if actual damages cannot be reasonably calculated, then User agrees to pay AlternativeModel liquidated damages equal to $25,000 for each instance of solicitation or advertising from or otherwise connected with such User’s access to or use of the Site; otherwise, User agrees to pay AlternativeModel actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated.

PRIVACY POLICY

What kind of information does AlternativeModel collect?

AlternativeModel receives and stores information a User sends to us.

When a User becomes a Subscriber, AlternativeModel obtains and retains the Registration Data.

When a User requests pages from the Site’s server, the Site Web server automatically collects some information about such User, including the User’s IP addresses.

AlternativeModel collects information regarding a User’s use of the Site through the use of cookies.

If a User sends the Site or AlternativeModel personal correspondence, such as e-mails or letters, AlternativeModel may collect such information in a file specific to that User. AlternativeModel may maintain a record or notes of communications with a User regarding use of or access to the Site, and that compilation of records or notes may include information AlternativeModel receives from other sources.

All of the information listed in the preceding sentences of this paragraph is sometimes referred to as “Customer Information”.

Who sees a User’s Customer Information?

AlternativeModel does not distribute, rent or sell Customer Information to third parties, other than (i) with the User’s consent (including, for example, when a User Transmits for public display on the Site Customer Information, or a portion thereof), (ii) as necessary to process User authorized credit or debit card payment transactions, or (iii) as otherwise permitted by the TOS.

How does AlternativeModel use Customer Information?

AlternativeModel uses Customer Information as necessary to process User authorized credit or debit card payment transactions, to facilitate a User’s viewing of the Site and to communicate with the User. AlternativeModel also uses Customer Information to compile broad demographic and Site usage information about the Site Users, for its internal business use, but such compilations generally do not contain anything that could be used to identify a User personally. A User will not receive any e-mail from AlternativeModel unless the User has requested it and a User can indicate at any time that the User does not wish to receive e-mails information from AlternativeModel.

How secure is a User’s Customer Information?

AlternativeModel takes reasonable precautions to maintain the security of Customer Information. AlternativeModel provides Users with a secure web page through which to submit billing information when the User becomes a Subscriber or shops for merchandise sold on the Site. AlternativeModel maintains Customer Information in a reasonably secure manner, including storing such Customer Information behind firewalls.

However, AlternativeModel may buy other businesses or sell portions of its own business, and Customer Information may be a transferred asset, subject to any then existing Privacy Notice.

The site may integrate software from third parties for security purposes (such as, but not limited to, Google reCAPTCHA), that collect information about users which may be subject to those third parties’ own Privacy Policies. Information collected by reCAPTCHA is held in accordance with the Google Privacy Policy.
