PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT
However, certain anonymous information (“Anonymous Information”) may be collected by us automatically. Our Web server may collect the IP address and the name of the Internet service provider (“ISP”) associated with the computer from which you accessed this Site, the type and version of Web browser and operating system that you are using, and the address of the Web Site that you visited prior to this Site.
USE OF INFORMATION
Anonymous Information, if used at all, would only be used to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views and other statistics about visitors to this Site, to monitor Site performance for systems administration purposes, to make this Site easier and more convenient to use, for law enforcement purposes, and to report information in aggregate but not personally identifiable form to our advertisers (e.g. how many visitors log in to this Site).
If cookies are enabled for your Internet browser, then they may be used to help us measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views and other statistics relating to your use of this Site. If you are performing a search on our Site, then a cookie is used to carry the search request data from the request page to the results page. This cookie, by itself, does not tell us your email address or who you are.
Anonymous Information can be used to serve targeted advertising on this Site. Targeted advertisements are probably more interesting for you and are more productive for our advertisers.
When information is collected from you by us as a part of an online or email survey, unless you request to receive the results of the survey, no personally identifiable information is requested during such surveys and all collected information is used on an aggregated basis only. If you contact us, we may keep a record of the correspondence but we do not make any use of the email address or other contact information, other than to respond to the communication.
We do not collect, use or disclose your personal information without your consent except where required or permitted by law. We may, for example, collect, use or disclose personal information without your knowledge or consent in the case of an emergency where the life, health or security of an individual is threatened. We may also disclose personal information without knowledge or consent to a lawyer or other advisor representing us, to collect a debt, to comply with a subpoena, warrant or other court order or rules, as required for the investigation or enforcement of laws, or as may otherwise be required or authorized by law. Where a request for personal information is made by an organization claiming lawful authority for the request, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that the requesting party properly identifies its legal authority.
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
ACCESS AND ACCURACY AND UPDATE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Where we consider it appropriate, having due regard to the sensitivity of the particular information that we collect, use or disclose, we use encryption or authentication tools, among other methods, practices and procedures, to protect certain your personal information irrespective of which format it is stored in. Our practices and procedures for safeguarding your information are regularly reviewed.
Emails you send to us are not necessarily secure when they are transmitted to us. It is important that you keep any user ID and password information secure and that you not share it with anyone, in order to safeguard your personal information on our Site. There are occasionally fraudulent “phishing” emails targeting individuals who the perpetrators believe might be users of this Site. We never send an email which requests users to visit a Web page or to place a call and provide their user ID, password or any personal information. We will never ask you to confirm your user ID or password via email. If you ever receive such an email, do not log in from any referred link and do not provide any personal information.
We will make information about our policies and practices relating to management of personal information readily available. Please direct any questions about our privacy policies and procedures, any requests for access to our records of your personal information and any other privacy related concerns or complaints to firstname.lastname@example.org. All privacy related complaints will be acknowledged, recorded, investigated and responded to in accordance with applicable law.
