1. ShipX-related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages,
2. any other purpose that such user expressly opts into after adequate disclosure of the purpose(s).

In all cases, you must give users an opportunity to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them. In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this Section, can you disclose personal information about another user to any third party without our consent and the consent of such other user after adequate disclosure. Note that law enforcement personnel and other rights holders are given different rights with respect to information they access. We and our users do not tolerate spam. Therefore, without limiting the foregoing, you are not licensed to add a ShipX user to your mail list (email or physical mail) without their express consent after adequate disclosure.

4. Use of email tools

The Company reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to amend, edit, remove or otherwise block any material posted by a User which may, in the Company's sole discretion, violate any apliccable law or violate any aspect of this User Agreement or in order to limit Company's liability. However, the Company does not assume responsibility for verifying the material, content and information on its Site and is not responsible for any damages, losses, expenses or other injuries incurred by any User as a result of relying on any material, content and information posted on the Company's Site.

7. Security
ShipX has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Your information is stored on our server located in Norway, and adhers to the data protection laws and regulations of that country.

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
