Protecting Your Information
We want you to feel confident using our website to transact business. However, no system can be completely secure. Although we take steps to secure your information, we cannot promise that your personal information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure. Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission's website for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.
Credit Card Information
We place a high degree of importance on the privacy of your personal information. As such, please be aware that all confidential credit card information required by the site is processed by Stripe.com. For more information on Stripe.com’s security policies, please visit https://stripe.com/us/privacy. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for products and services. Stripe uses AES-256 encryption to ensure your credit card information is safe. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s or Nesterly’s primary services (API, website, etc.).
Nesterly invites only users and Members into our website. Therefore, if we make chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups, those features are available to Nesterly users and Members, not the public. Please remember, however, that you should always exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. Nesterly expressly disclaims any liability that may arise from the provision by any user or Member of any information whatsoever to these forums. You agree to hold Nesterly harmless from any liability that may arise from the provision of any information to these forums.
Cookies and the Collection of Information
Nesterly collects data about your activities that does not personally or directly identify you when you visit our website, the website of entities for which we serve advertisements, or the websites and online services where we display advertisements. This information may include the content you view, the date and time that you view this content, or your location information associated with your IP address. We use the information we collect to serve you more relevant advertisements (referred to as “Retargeting”).

Use of Member Information
Nesterly recognizes the honor we have of storing and using personal information collected in ways that enhance our relationship. We use collected information primarily to deliver the products and services that you have requested and to manage your account and provide you with customer support. Other uses could include, but are not limited to: Performing research and analysis about your use of, or interest in, our products, services, or content, or products, services or content offered by others; communicating with you by e-mail about products or services that may interest you; enforcing our terms and conditions; and other aspects of managing our business.
Sharing of Collected Information
Nesterly chooses to work with upstanding companies that will treat your information responsibly. When you submit information to Nesterly, it is generally collected, processed and maintained solely by us. Sometimes we may allow partner companies to collect information about Members from us or directly from you (through their Website). When Nesterly is the source, it is usually so that we can provide a service with an outstanding partner. Nesterly will do due diligence on the partner companies to a greater extent than the average user. But, since we don't own these partner companies, we cannot be liable for their privacy policies or breaches thereto. Before telling them about yourself, please review the other website privacy statements, as you would for any site. If you are not satisfied with their information practices, simply choose to not use their service. Below is a summary of some of the situations in which Nesterly might share information:
Co-Branding Some of our services might be offered in conjunction with partner companies. In order to provide these services, Nesterly may choose to share some of your user data (e.g., including, but not limited to, user name and email address).
Content Partners Some of Nesterly content is "sponsored by" or "presented by" other companies. Nesterly typically shares market research data (how the sponsorship performed, names of contest winners, etc.) collected on the site or via email surveys with these partners. This information is typically aggregate and not linked to specific users.
