Personal Information Collected
Use of Personal Information
We will never sell, rent, exchange or barter your personal information to or with any third party for financial gain or marketing purposes. Where you request to receive updates and promotions in connection with the Contact Services, we use the personal information that you make available to: (a) respond to your questions or comments; and (b) send you information, periodically, regarding updates, promotions and Site Offerings. In addition, we may file your questions or comments for future reference. If you wish to stop receiving future communications from us, please see the Opt-Out/Unsubscribe section below.
The personal information that you submit to us remains your property. We may permit our third-party agents, service providers and subcontractors to access your personal information, but they are only permitted to do so in connection with performing services for us and/or to operate the Site Offerings. They are not authorized to use that personal information for their own benefit.
We reserve the right to release current or past personal information: (i) in the event that we believe that the Site Offerings are being or have been used in violation of the Terms and Conditions or to commit unlawful acts; (ii) if the information is subpoenaed; provided, however, that, where permitted by applicable law, we shall provide you with e-mail notice, and opportunity to challenge the subpoena, prior to disclosure of any personal information pursuant to a subpoena; or (iii) if we are sold, merged or acquired; provided, however, that if we are involved in a merger, acquisition or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on the Site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices that you may have regarding your personal information.
Most Internet browsers are initially set up to accept Cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all Cookies or to indicate when a Cookie is being sent. To disable and reject certain Cookies, follow the instructions associated with your Internet browser. Even in the case where a user rejects a Cookie, he or she may still use the Site.
Behavioral Tracking/Do Not Track
We may track end-users’ use of the Site in an anonymous, non-personally identifiable manner through Cookies and other technology; provided, however, that we never link this information with personally identifiable information about any end-user. We also use Google Analytics on the Site. The Google Analytics platform does not record personally identifiable information about end-users, but aggregate information and activity only. We do not permit third parties to conduct any behavioral tracking by and through the Site. Users can disable any Site-usage tracking by utilizing the “Do Not Track” or similar options within most major Internet browsers.
The Site may contain links to third-party owned and/or operated websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. These third-party websites have separate privacy and data collection practices and we have no responsibility or liability relating to them.
We endeavor to safeguard and protect our users’ personal information. When users make personal information available to us, their personal information is protected both online and offline (to the extent that we maintain any personal information offline). The privacy of your personal information is very important to us. Where our registration/application process prompts users to enter Sensitive Information, and when we store and transmit such Sensitive Information, that information is encrypted with advanced TLS (Transport Layer Security).
Access to your personal information is strictly limited, and we take reasonable measures to ensure that your personal information is not accessible to the public. The servers that we store personal information in are kept in a secure physical environment. We also have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information under our control. Please be advised, however, that while we take every reasonable precaution available to protect your data, no storage facility, technology, software, security protocols or data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Computer hackers that circumvent our security measures may gain access to certain portions of your personal information, and technological bugs, errors and glitches may cause inadvertent disclosures of your personal information; provided, however, that any attempt to breach the security of the network, our servers, databases or other hardware or software constitutes a crime punishable by law. For the reasons mentioned above, we cannot warrant that your personal information will be absolutely secure. Any transmission of data at or through the Site is at your own risk.
All of our users’ personal information is restricted in our offices, as well as the offices of our third party service providers. Only employees or third party agents who need the personal information to perform a specific job are granted access to personal information. Our employees are dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of all user personal information. Employees not adhering to our firm policies are subject to disciplinary action. In compliance with applicable federal and state laws, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your personal information. You will be notified via e-mail in the event of such a breach. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.
Visitors under eighteen (18) years of age (or the applicable age of majority, if greater than eighteen (18) years of age) are not permitted to use and/or submit their personal information at the Site. We do not knowingly solicit or collect information from visitors under eighteen (18) years of age (or the applicable age of majority, if greater than eighteen (18) years of age). We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate and monitor the interactive activities of their children.
To opt-out of receiving any e-mail notifications and newsletters from us, you can follow the instructions at the end of the applicable e-mail message or e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may continue to contact you for the purpose of communicating information relating to your request for Contact Services, your purchase of Products as well as to respond to any other inquiry or request made by you. To opt-out of receiving Contact Services-related, Products-related and inquiry response-related messages from us, you must cease requesting Contact Services, cease purchasing Products and cease submitting inquiries to us, as applicable.
Deleting and Updating Your Information
At your request, we will inform you of what personal information we have on file for you. In addition, at your request, we will remove personal information that you have provided to us, or that we have collected. You may do so by contacting us via e-mail at: email@example.com; provided, however, that we ask individuals to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes).
Please be advised that deleting your personal information will limit our ability to contact you in connection with the Contact Services and limit your ability to purchase Products. If you wish to be contacted by us in connection with the Contact Services, or purchase Products, you may not delete the personal information that we have on file for you.
Please be further advised that, after you delete your personal information, residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted from our active servers and may remain in our backup systems.
