We may send you a series of emails that help inform new Users about the features of the Services, and we will also send you service messages relating to the functioning of the Services.

You can change your e-mail and contact preferences at any time by logging into your account and changing your settings related to your email notification choices. If you wish, you can also opt-out of receiving promotional emails by sending a request to InsYght customer service to the email address listed below.

D. Sharing Information with Third Parties
InsYght may sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to third parties for purposes of furthering our mission only when both parties agree to a connection. We may also disclose your personally identifiable information if reasonably necessary in our opinion to: (1) comply with legal process, including, but not limited to, civil and criminal subpoenas, court orders or other compulsory disclosures; (2) enforce this Agreement; (3) respond to claims of a violation of the rights of third parties, whether or not the third party is a User, individual, or government agency; (4) respond to customer service inquiries; or (5) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of InsYght, our Users or the public.  Content distributed through InsYght's sharing features and third party integrations may result in displaying some of your information outside of InsYght.
We may also provide aggregated anonymized data about the usage of the Services to third parties for purposes that we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate, including to prospective advertisers on InsYght.

E. Third Parties using InsYght Platform Services
We may collaborate with and allow third parties to use InsYght's developer platform to offer services and functionality in conjunction with and outside of InsYght.  These may be third parties ("InsYght Partners") with whom we have negotiated an agreement to provide services ("Combined Services"). Both the negotiated agreements and our terms and conditions may contain restrictions on access, storage and use of your information.
If you choose to use Combined Services or a Platform Application, you may be asked to confirm acceptance of the privacy policy and/or user agreement of the InsYght Partner or Platform Developer, which have not necessarily been reviewed or approved by InsYght. It is your choice whether or not to make use of Combined Services or Platform Applications and whether to proceed under any third party, and once you do, the third party's terms.  If you decide to accept the third party's terms, those terms and not this policy will govern how they handle information you provide to them directly or through your InsYght account.
Despite our agreements and technical steps taken to restrict access to and avoid possible misuse of information, we may not screen or audit all Combined Services or Platform Applications. We cannot guarantee that any InsYght Partner or Platform Developer will abide by our agreement. You agree that your use of Combined Services or Platform Applications is on an "as is" basis and without any warranty from InsYght.
If you use any Combined Service or Platform Application, the InsYght Partner or Platform Developer may access and share certain information about you.  To report any suspected misuse of information, contact InsYght's customer service.  InsYght is not responsible for your use of or inability to use any Combined Service or Platform Application, including the content, accuracy, or reliability of applications and the privacy practices or other policies of InsYght Partners or Platform Developers.

F. Search
We may offer search services to help find information and learn more about other Users.  For example, you may be able to search for Users with particular expertise or that you may know from your industry or profession, as well as employment opportunities. InsYght search also allows Users to find resources, jobs, companies, and contributions to the community aspects of the InsYght Services, such as Groups and Answers that will help Users more effectively use InsYght and expand their network. We use information from User profiles and contributions to Groups, Company Pages, and Answers to inform and refine our search service.

G. Compliance with Legal Process
It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information, profile information and/or information about your activities as a InsYght User when required by subpoena or other legal process, or if InsYght has a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to (a) investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (b) to enforce the User Agreement, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third party claims or allegations, or to protect the security or integrity of our site; and/or (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property or personal safety of InsYght, our Users, employees, or others.

H. Disclosures to Others as the Result of a Change in Control or Sale of the InsYght System
We may also disclose your personal information and other information you provide to another third party as part of the transfer of the InsYght System or a sale of the assets of Insyght, Inc., Digerati, Inc., a subsidiary or division, or as the result of a change in control of the company.  Any third party to which InsYght transfers or sells InsYght's assets will have the right to continue to use the personal and other information that you provide to us.

3. Your Obligations
As a User, you have certain obligations to InsYght and to other Users. Some of these obligations are imposed by applicable law and regulations, and others have become commonplace in communities of like-minded members such as InsYght:

* You must, at all times, abide by the terms and conditions of the then-current Privacy Policy and User Agreement. This includes respecting all intellectual property rights that may belong to third parties (such as trademarks or photographs).
* You must not download or otherwise disseminate any information that may be deemed to be injurious, violent, offensive, racist or xenophobic, or which may otherwise violate the purpose and spirit of InsYght and its community of Users.
* You must not provide to InsYght and/or other Users information that you believe might be injurious or detrimental to your person or to your professional or social status.
* You must keep your username and password confidential and not share it with others.

Any violation of these guidelines may lead to the restriction, suspension or termination of your account at the sole discretion of InsYght.

4. Security
In order to help secure your personal information, access to your data on InsYght is password-protected, and sensitive data (such as credit card information) is protected by SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and the InsYght website. To protect your data, we use a secured-access data center and encrypt data that is submitted to InsYght. However, since the internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to InsYght. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information. Please note that emails, instant messaging, and similar means of communication with other Users of InsYght are not encrypted, and we strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential information through these means.
