Please review our privacy policy to learn about what information we collect, and how we use it

InventHelp.com Privacy Policy

This site is operated by InventHelp. Your privacy on the Internet is very important to us. We at InventHelp want to make your online experience satisfying and safe. We respect your privacy and work diligently to ensure that any personally identifiable information you have submitted to us remains secure and confidential.

Because we gather certain types of information about our users, you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This Privacy Policy discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

What Information We Collect

InventHelp gathers two types of information about users:

  • Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters or to receive more information about our services.
  • Information we gather through tracking information, derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our site. This information allows us to better tailor our content to visitors' needs.

How We Gather User Information

Optional Voluntary Information

We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:

1. Request for more information
InventHelp gathers voluntary contact information from users who would like to receive more information about our services. We may periodically send e-mails to users who have voluntarily submitted their information and have indicated a willingness to receive such notifications. We will never use your e-mail to spam or for other fraudulent purposes.

2. Electronic newsletters (Dispatches)
InventHelp gathers voluntary contact information from users who would like to receive more information about our services. We may periodically send e-mails to users who have voluntarily submitted their information and have indicated a willingness to receive such notifications. We will never use your e-mail to spam or for other fraudulent purposes.

Children

The Website is not intended or designed to attract children under the age of 13. Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we do not knowingly request or collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without obtaining parental consent.

Usage Tracking

InventHelp tracks user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. We do break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type and operating system by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).

We sometimes track and catalog the search terms that visitors use to find our site (or terms entered into our Search function), but this tracking is not associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our site users prefer based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better Web site for you.

California’s Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA), as amended, requires us to disclose how we respond to “do not track” requests, signals and other similar mechanisms. Currently, our policy is that we do not recognize “do not track” requests and signals from Internet browsers and similar devices. InventHelp is not in the business of tracking users for the purpose of building behavioral profiles of visitors to our site, and our use of your personal information is strictly limited to the uses described in this Privacy Policy. A visitor to our site delivering a “do not track” request or signal will be treated no differently than a visitor to our site not delivering a “do not track” request or signal. Please see the “Usage Information” section herein to understand how this policy may affect you.

Cookies

We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. We use cookies and similar technologies to track user traffic patterns (as described above). Our advertising system delivers a one-time cookie to better track ad impressions and click rates. The cookie itself does not contain personal information, although it will enable us to relate your use of our site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to us. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you've set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use our site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in newsletter registration and information requests.

Some of our web pages and electronic communications may contain electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes referred to as “clear gifs”). Web beacons collect only limited information that includes a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides. We may also carry web beacons placed by third party advertisers. These web beacons are used to track usage of the Website and activities associated with our site.

We or a trusted third party may assign you a unique internal identifier to help keep track of your future visits. We use this information to gather aggregate demographic information about our visitors, and we use it to personalize the information you see on our site and some of the electronic communications you receive from us. This information is used internally and is not shared with others.

Use of Information

We use any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the site or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users. Information that users voluntarily submit via the InventHelp.com Web site may be shared between our sister firms (Intromark Incorporated and INPEX® – The Invention Show), but access to such information is restricted to those individuals who need it to provide you with our services.

As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to receive more information about our services and activities. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing.

We use tracking information to determine which areas of our site users visit most frequently, and we create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns to tailor our site to visitors' needs. We may share personal information with a third party for the following purposes:

  • We may share personal information that you voluntarily provide with third parties who perform services to us or on our behalf. However, these third-party service providers are obligated to keep your personal information secure and confidential.
  • We will share a user's personal information when it is required to comply with an applicable law or valid legal process, or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public. For example, we may disclose such information in response to a subpoena, to enforce this Privacy Policy, to respond to claims that any materials, documents, images, graphics, logos, designs, audio, video and any other information provided from or on our site violates the rights of third parties, and/or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of InventHelp, its partners or users, or the public.
  • We may from time to time send e-mail to you announcing new features, services and/or programs offered through our site.

In addition, in order to provide users of our site with many of the added values and special offers of reputable organizations and retailers, we may provide some or all of your personal information to reputable third-party companies. These third-parties are also obligated to keep your personal information secure and confidential. You may also receive mailings, telephone calls and/or facsimiles from these third-party companies. Users have the option of not participating in these value-added benefits by following the procedure for withholding your personal information that is set forth under "Opt-Out Policy" below.

We reserve the right to transfer information in connection with the sale or other disposition of all or part of InventHelp's business and/or assets. Furthermore, we cannot and will not be responsible for any breach of security by any third parties or for any actions of any third parties that receive any of the information that is disclosed to us.

Security

InventHelp operates secure data networks protected by industry-standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary, and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our users.

Our Web site and database may operate through the use of a third party hosting service, but any such service provider is similarly required to keep your information secure and confidential. Additionally, these third party service providers must maintain secure data networks and have physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in place to ensure the security and confidentiality of any personal information transmitted via those networks.

You, however, are ultimately responsible for protecting your personally identifiable information from disclosure to third parties, and you are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You agree to: (a) immediately notify InventHelp of any unauthorized use of your userID, password and/or user account, and/or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your user account at the end of each session. While we may provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee or warrant that information transmitted through the internet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, interruption, interception or error.

Your California Privacy Rights

Under California’s “Shine the Light” law, California residents who provide personal information in connection with obtaining products or services for personal, family or household use are entitled to request and obtain from us once every calendar year information about the customer information we shared, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. If applicable, this information would include the categories of customer information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared customer information for the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2014 will receive information regarding 2013 sharing activities).InventHelp operates secure data networks protected by industry-standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary, and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our users.

To obtain this information on behalf of InventHelp, please send an e-mail message to the e-mail address provided at the end of this Privacy Policy with “Request for California Privacy Information” in the subject line and in the body of your message. Your request must state that you are a resident of the State of California and provide your mailing address. We will provide the requested information to you at your e-mail address in response. Please be aware that not all information sharing is covered by the “Shine the Light” requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.

External Links

InventHelp occasionally publishes links to third party Web sites that we feel may be of interest to our users. However, any such external links should not be considered an endorsement or sponsorship of those sites, and InventHelp claims no responsibility for the content, information, products or services offered by them. We encourage you to review the privacy policies for any third party sites you access via our links.

European Union Users

Because our site is accessible globally, the information that we collect may be made available to our affiliates, partners and subsidiaries worldwide. For those users visiting us from the European Union, please note that InventHelp may transfer your personally identifiable data outside the European Union for use for any of the purposes described above. By using our site and providing us with your personal data, you consent to such transfer of your personal data.

Opt-Out Policy

We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:

  • Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas (including all registration/information request forms) by notifying us in writing at the address set forth below. This will completely alleviate the need to gather any personally identifiable information from that user.
  • Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters, or opting out of our mailing list for electronic dispatches by clicking the "unsubscribe" link included at the bottom of every message.
  • If you voluntarily provide us with any information, opting out of having your information provided to reputable third-party service providers by notifying us in writing at the mailing address set forth below.

By using or accessing our site, you agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to your use of our site or this Privacy Policy will be filed only in the state or federal courts in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Allegheny County, and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating any such action.

By using this site, you consent to the collection and use of your information by InventHelp as specified above. If we decide to change this Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it to others. We may use comments, information or feedback that you may submit in any manner that we may choose without notice or compensation to you.
