Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last updated on: August 15, 2013.

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) sets forth the privacy policies that apply to your use of (the “Site”) offered and/or operated by Suite 1521 LLC (“Suite 1521” or “we” or “our” or “us”). By visiting our Site, you are subject to these privacy policies.
Suite 1521 is concerned about your privacy and wants you to be familiar with how it collects, uses and shares your information. This Policy outlines the type of information that we collect and receive from you while you are using our Site. Additionally this Policy identifies the ways in which we process, and sometimes share, such information and what control and choices you have with regard to the collection and use of your personal information. Please review this Policy carefully, especially before providing any personal information through our Site. Our Site is operated in and controlled from the United States of America. If you have any questions about this Policy or don’t see your concerns addressed here, please use the contact information provided at the end of this Policy to contact us.

Our goal is to collect and use only that information that we think is required for our legitimate business interests, in order to better understand your interests and to improve your experience of using our Site. In order to do so, we collect the following types of information:
Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally identifiable information is any information that identifies a living individual, such as your first and last name, mailing address, phone number, mobile phone number email address, photograph, credit/debit card number and expiration date (or other payment-method information), login ID, member name and password and other information about a specific individual that identifies the individual ("Personally Identifiable Information"). When you sign up to become a member, Suite 1521 collects some amount of Personally Identifiable Information from you. In some instances, when you use certain features of the Site, Suite 1521 may collect the email addresses or other Personally Identifiable Information of others that you may provide. Unless stated otherwise at the point of collection, we will treat any such Personally Identifiable Information that you submit about other people in accordance with this Policy.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Suite 1521 collects information from you automatically when you use the Site. Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that does not specifically identify a living individual and is not used with Personally Identifiable Information to determine an individual’s identity, including a computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, a mobile device’s unique identifier, computer and device connection information such as browser type or version, demographic information, such as a person’s age, ZIP code and other data collected automatically through the operation of this Site (“Non-Personally Identifiable Information”). We may collect site usage data and other Non-Personally Identifiable Information (such as which Site pages are visited and in what sequence) through the use of various technologies.

We will use your Personally Identifiable Information for the purposes for which it was provided. For example, Suite 1521 may use your Personally Identifiable Information to notify you of changes to the Site, to let you know about opportunities and other products or services you may be interested in, and to request your participation in surveys or other promotions. You can choose not to receive certain communications from Suite 1521 by contacting us at or by clicking unsubscribe on the communications that you receive from us.

3. What this Privacy Policy Covers: The practices described in this Policy only apply to the following:
- Information collected online on this Site.
- Information collected when you sign up to become a Suite 1521 member.
Like many other websites, we may now or in the future provide other websites or mobile services with, and allow users to “snag” or place, our RSS feeds, video players and other applications on websites or mobile services we do not control. This Policy applies to any information we collect when you use our RSS feeds, video players and other applications, but does not apply to information separately collected by the operators of those websites or mobile services or other third parties that may provide content or services to those websites or mobile services.

4. What this Privacy Policy Does Not Cover: This Policy does not cover any of the following:
- Information you give to us offline, for example when you send a letter to our business address or leave a message on our voicemail system.
- Your credit card information. Such information is stored by the credit card processing company.
- Information collected by third parties, even if collected on or through our Site. For example, we may embed a content feed, video player or other application from a third party on our Site. These third party applications may appear to be part of our Site, but the content is provided by a third party server. By accessing this third party application, the third party owner may send its own cookies and collect its own data regarding your interaction with the application and may solicit your personal information as part of your use of such application. We are not responsible for the actions and privacy policies of these third party providers and you should review such privacy policies prior to providing any Personally Identifiable Information to them.
This Policy will be posted on this Site for your review and from time to time as part of registering or providing information in connection with this Site, we may provide you with a short notice reminding you to refer to this Policy and other relevant information from us when using our Site.

Like many sites, we and third parties that provide content on and through the Site may use “cookies” or other similar technologies to collect information. A cookie is a small text file that is sent to your computer from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive when you visit a website. Suite 1521’ cookies may contain Personally Identifiable Information, such as your email address, as well as Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Suite 1521 may use cookies to ensure that you have agreed to the terms, conditions and policies that govern your use of the Site. In addition, Suite 1521 may use cookies to measure traffic activity on the Site and track your use of the Site. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent, but it is possible that some parts of the Site may not function properly if you do so. Certain internet browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari, also allow you to block, control and remove cookies from your computer. For more information regarding your specific browser, please consult the browser’s Help section or browser provider’s website.
IP Address.
An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer automatically when you use the Internet. Suite 1521 may log your IP address and use your IP address to track your usage of the Site.
Other Methods.
Where authorized and as permitted by FTC guidelines and all other applicable laws, rules and regulations, Suite 1521 may also use or allow the use of trusted vendors and other third party companies who may gather data for appropriate business purposes such as managing advertising and/or generating reports on Site traffic and statistics. We may also use other monitoring technologies to gather anonymous statistics about our Site visitors.

Suite 1521 is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email ("spam"). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorized third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an "unsubscribe" opt-out link that you may use to ask that we discontinue such emails to you.

Disclosure to Affiliates
Suite 1521 reserves the right to share any Personally Identifiable Information or other information about you which you provide to (or which is gathered from) the Suite 1521 Site with any or all of its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, our “Affiliates”) (subject to the opt-out right described below, with respect to disclosures of Personally Identifiable Information to Affiliates for their direct marketing uses). Subject to the applicable privacy policies under which such information was collected, Suite 1521 may also have access to any information you provide to (or which is gathered from) the web sites of any of our Affiliates.
Disclosure to Third Parties
Like many businesses, we sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions on our behalf such as hosting specific portions of the Site, maintaining databases and sending e-mails. When we employ a third party to perform these functions, that third party will only be provided with the particular Personally Identifiable Information it needs to perform its function, and is required to protect the Personally Identifiable Information.
If Suite 1521 sells all or part of the Site or makes a sale or transfer of assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, we may, in our sole discretion, transfer, sell or assign your Personally Identifiable Information to a third party as part of or in connection with that transaction. Upon such transfer, the privacy policies of the acquiring entity may govern the further collection and use of your Personally Identifiable Information.
Disclosure to Others
In addition, we may disclose Personally Identifiable Information under the following circumstances to: (1) protect our legal rights, privacy or safety, and those of our subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, agents and contractors; (2) protect the safety and security of visitors to our web sites or other properties; (3) protect against fraud or other illegal activity or for risk management purposes; (4) respond to inquiries or requests from government, regulatory, law enforcement or public authorities; (5) permit us to pursue available remedies, commence, participate in, or defend litigation, or limit the damages that we may sustain; (6) enforce our Terms of Use; or (7) comply with subpoenas, search warrants, the law or other legal process.

Suite 1521 is not designed or intended for use by children under 13. If you are under 18, you should use Suite 1521 only with involvement of a parent or guardian. At various places on the Site, we may ask users for their age. Children under 13 are expressly prohibited from submitting any Personally Identifiable Information (as defined below) to us, and if we discover that we have inadvertently gathered any such information from a child under 13, we will take appropriate steps to delete it.

We maintain security measures in place in order to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the Personally Identifiable Information under our control. Please be advised, however, that the Internet and other various networking communication media are not entirely secure, and your information may therefore be subject to interception or loss which is beyond our control. While we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any Personally Identifiable Information you transmit to us. Any transmission is done at your own risk. Accordingly, Suite 1521 assumes no responsibility or liability for disclosure of your information (personally identifiable or otherwise) due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third-party access or other causes beyond Suite 1521’ reasonable control.

We control and operate the Site from the State of New York in the United States. The interpretation and application of this Privacy Policy shall be governed by the laws of the United States and the State of New York without regard to its conflict of law provisions. This Site is not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than that of the United States. Please note that we do not represent or warrant that the Site is appropriate for use in any particular jurisdiction. Those who choose to access the Site do so at their own initiative and are responsible for complying with all local laws, rules and regulations. If you are located in a country outside of the United States and submit personal information to us, you are consenting to the transfer, processing, storage and use of that information in the United States as provided in this Policy.

11. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS (California residents)
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits our visitors who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please email us at or write to us: Suite 1521 Attn: California Privacy Rights 980 Madison Avenue, 3rd Floor New York, NY 10075

When you use the Site, you are accepting the terms and conditions of this Policy, and Suite 1521 will have the right to use your Personally Identifiable Information or other information about you as described in this Policy.

From time to time, we may revise this Policy to reflect industry initiatives, changes in the law or technology, or changes in our practices regarding information collection and use. You can determine when this Policy was last revised by referring to the “Last Updated” legend at the top of this page. Any changes to this Policy will become effective upon posting of the revised Policy on the Internet, accessible through the Site. By continuing to use the Site following such changes, you will be deemed to have agreed to such changes. If you do not agree with the terms of this Policy, as it may be amended from time to time, please do not continue using the Site. To the extent that a court of applicable jurisdiction determines that applying any changes to this Policy would render this an illusory or unenforceable contract, such changes shall be applicable on a prospective basis only, with respect to events or circumstances occurring after the date of such changes, to the extent necessary to avoid this Policy being deemed illusory or unenforceable.
