Use of Visitor Personal Information (VPI)
The Sites may collect and use VPI to operate its customer relationship management, marketing or other software application to best deliver Site functionality.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
Company does not sell, rent, or lease NPI to third parties. Company may share certain VPI with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send emails or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using VPI except to provide these services to Company and are contractually required to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
Company may disclose VP, without notice, if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in our reasonable determination to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Company; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Company; and/or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of visitors to the Websites.
Tracking Visitor Behavior
Company may keep track of the Site pages you visit. This data is used to deliver customized content to visitors whose behavior indicates an interest in a particular subject area.
Automatically Collected Information
Information about a Visitor’s computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by Company. This information can include: the Visitor’s IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the Sites, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Sites.
The Sites may use “cookies” to help personalize a Visitor’s online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on the Visitor’s hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to a Visitor’s computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to Visitors and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Company Website pages, or register with other services, a cookie helps Company to recall this information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording certain personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same websites, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Company features that you may have customized.
You can accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you may be able to modify visitor’s browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Websites.
The Sites contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our visitors to be aware when they leave our Sites to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
Security of Visitor Personal Information
Company secures VPI from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When such information is transmitted to other websites, it is protected using encryption via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocols.
We strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or alteration of VPI. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
