Ponyexchange may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain personal information, but it will enable Ponyexchange to relate your use of Ponyexchange's website to personal information that you have specifically, voluntarily, and knowingly provided to Ponyexchange. However, the only personal information a cookie can contain is information that you supply yourself. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read other cookie files created by other websites. Ponyexchange may use cookies to track your traffic patterns. In addition, Ponyexchange uses encrypted cookies to authenticate your identity on each page after you log on to the website. You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you have set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. Some of Ponyexchange's Services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

Ponyexchange's website may contain links to other third-party websites that are not owned or controlled by Ponyexchange. Please be aware that Ponyexchange is not responsible for the privacy practices of these third-party websites. Ponyexchange encourages you to be aware when you leave Ponyexchange's website and to read the privacy policies of any third-party website that collects and/or uses your personal information.

Ponyexchange's website is hosted in the United States. If you are visiting from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU. By providing your personal information, you consent to: the use of your personal information for the purposes identified above in accordance with this Privacy Policy; and the transfer of your personal information to the United States as indicated above.

3. Information Sharing and Disclosure

Ponyexchange does not sell or share your personal information with other people or nonaffiliated entities except in the following circumstances: (a) to provide products or services to you which you have requested; (b) when Ponyexchange has your permission; (c) in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process; (d) to establish or exercise Ponyexchange's legal rights or defend against legal claims; (e) upon receipt of a written request from law enforcement; or (f) if Ponyexchange reasonably believes that doing so is legally required or is in Ponyexchange's best interest to protect Ponyexchange's legal rights or the legal rights of others.

If Ponyexchange is acquired by or merges with another company, Ponyexchange may transfer personal information about you to such company, to the extent such transfer is permitted by applicable law. In this event, Ponyexchange will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

4. Data Storage and Retention

Ponyexchange will retain your personal information as long as it is necessary and relevant to provide you with the Services. Ponyexchange may also store the personal information associated with your account in Ponyexchange's databases indefinitely following the closing or cancellation of your account in order to comply with legal and regulatory obligations, resolve disputes and claims, collect any fees owed, assist with any investigation, and take any other actions permitted by law.

5. Confidentiality and Security

Ponyexchange takes your security seriously and takes reasonable steps to protect your personal information. Access to your personal information is limited to employees who reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide you with the Services or to do their jobs. Ponyexchange has physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect personal information about you.

Ponyexchange uses Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") encryption when transmitting certain kinds of personal information, such as financial services or payment information. An icon resembling a padlock is displayed on the bottom of most browser windows during SSL transactions that involve credit cards and other forms of payment. Any time Ponyexchange asks you for a credit card number or driver's license number for payment or verification purposes, it will be SSL encrypted. The information you provide will be stored securely on Ponyexchange's servers. However, no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Once you choose to store or enter your credit card number on Ponyexchange, it will not be displayed back to you in its entirety when you retrieve or edit it in the future. Instead of the entire number, you will only see asterisks and either the first four digits or the last four digits of the number.

If Ponyexchange learns of a security systems breach, Ponyexchange may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using this website, any Ponyexchange mobile application, or providing personal information to Ponyexchange, you agree that Ponyexchange can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of the Services. Ponyexchange may post a notice on the Ponyexchange website if a security breach occurs. Ponyexchange may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice), you should notify Ponyexchange at
