  1. Information Sharing and Disclosure 

As a matter of policy, we do not sell, rent, or share any of your Personal Information, including your email address, to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. However, you acknowledge and agree that MA may occasionally send you administrative communications regarding your account via email. Additionally, the following describes some of the ways that your Personal Information may be disclosed in the normal scope of business to provide our Services and products to customers:

  • Purpose: We may disclose your Personal Information to fulfill the purpose for which it is provided. 

  • External Service Providers: There may be separate services offered by third parties that we refer to as external service providers (“ESP”) that may be complementary to your use of the Services. If you choose to use these separate services or products, disclose information to the ESP, and/or grant them permission to collect information about you, then their use of your information is governed by their privacy policy. We do not disclose your Personal Information, including your email address, to ESP unless you provide your explicit consent. With your consent, we may provide some of your Personal Information to the ESP offering such services, for your convenience. To prevent our disclosure of your Personal Information to an ESP, you can decline such consent or simply not use their services or products. Because we do not control the privacy practices of these third parties, you should evaluate their practices before deciding to use their services. 
  • Internal Service Providers: We may use third parties that we refer to as internal service providers (“ISP”) to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of the business, product, and service operations that we provide to you. Therefore, we may provide some of your Personal Information, including your email address, directly to these ISP’s. These ISP are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions that prohibit their use of the Personal Information provided to them for purposes other than to facilitate the outsourced Micro-Ant operation. However, you may provide the ISP with permission to use the Personal Information for additional uses. If you provide additional information to an ISP directly, then their use of your Personal Information is governed by their applicable privacy policy.
  • Buyers or Successors: We may disclose your Personal Information to a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of MA assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by MA about our Services users is among the assets transferred.
  • Legal Requests: We will cooperate with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties to enforce laws, such as: intellectual property rights, fraud and other rights, to help protect you, other users, and MA from bad actors. Therefore, in response to a verified request by law enforcement or other government officials relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose your name, city, state, telephone number, email address, username history, and fraud complaints without a subpoena. Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy, we will not otherwise disclose your Personal Information to law enforcement or other government officials without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss, or report suspected illegal activity.
  • Deep Packet Inspection.  We may track the IP addresses of computers communicating with our customers’ systems and inspects data packets (also known as “Deep Packet Inspection” or “DPI“) solely for the purpose of identifying and preventing specific threat types. Data described in the preceding sentence may include Personal Information, including information belonging to our customers’ own customers and their virtual machine users. We use this data solely to maintain the security of the Service. We may also block access to websites, email content and internet content which shows potential for harming our Service. We also use an intrusion protection system to actively block connections from certain computers which have shown attempts to gain access into the system surreptitiously.  
  • Aggregate Information: We may disclose aggregated information about our Customers, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.
  • Other Disclosures: We may also disclose your Personal Information: (1) to enforce or apply our Acceptable Use Policy and other agreements; or (2) if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of MA, our customers, or others. 

Due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other Personal Information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), we may be forced to disclose Personal Information, including your email address, to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or users may abuse or misuse your Personal Information that they collect from MA. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should neither rely upon nor expect, that your Personal Information or private communications will always remain private.
