We take your privacy seriously. Here is our take on the things you should know when we collect your information. If you have any additional concerns, please don't hesitate to Contact Us.
The Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and our products and services. This statement will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and our customers' needs.
What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our website you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website.
You will provide us information about yourself, your firm or company, and your practices when you register for certain services, or register for email newsletters and alerts.
Credit Card Information
If you choose to purchase products or services from us or our partners, you may need to give personal information and authorization to obtain information from various credit services. For example, you may need to provide the following information:
- Mailing address
- Email address
- Credit card number
- Home and business phone number
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.
Website Use Information
Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" (see explanation below, "What Are Cookies?") and Web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our website, new services and special offers and content articles we think you will find valuable. This includes, but is not limited to:
- To provide you with information on products and services that you request from us
- To provide you with services or process transactions that you have requested
- To provide you with notices about your account
- To process any changes to your account information
- To notify you about changes to our website, services and/or products
- To respond to product support requests
- To contact you for customer satisfaction surveys, market research or in connection with certain transactions
- To share content such as whitepapers, infographics and informational articles
- To share news and information on our company, products and services that we believe will be of interest to you
- To personalize your experience while you are on our websites, and for website usage statistics
- To serve relevant advertisements to you when you visit our website or third-party sites (including social media platforms)
- In any other way we may describe when you provide the information
We do not sell or rent your personal information with any additional parties. We may share your personal information with third parties for the purpose of providing requested products or services.
How Do We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?
Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by email. Some of the information you may enter on our Web site may be transmitted securely via Secure Sockets Layer SSL, 128 bit encryption services, which are enabled by Thawte. Pages utilizing this technology will have URLs that start with HTTPS instead of HTTP.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
Evaluation of Information Protection Practices
Periodically, our operations and business practices are reviewed for compliance with corporate policies and procedures governing the security, confidentiality and quality of our information.
Employee Access, Training and Expectations
Our corporate values, ethical standards, and practices are committed to the appropriate protection of customer and visitor information. In general, our business practices limit employee access to confidential information, and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons, processes and transactions.
How Can You Access or Correct Your Information, or Change Your Data Preferences?
You may request access to all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain in our database by emailing email@example.com. Please allow 30 business days from the date of your request.
You may request to edit or delete any of all of your personal information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
When we collect information from you, you may tell us that you do not want it used for further marketing contact at the time of collection.
You may opt out from receiving any further marketing emails from us by using the "unsubscribe" link present at the bottom of the email or by emailing email@example.com. Please allow up to 5 business days to process this request.
You may also turn off cookies in your web browser.
What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?
