GENERAL PRIVACY PRINCIPLES
“Personally Identifying Information” is information that individually identifies you, such as your name, company name, physical address, phone numbers, e-mail address and any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact you. The Company may ask for your Personally Identifying Information so that we can send you correspondence or legal updates in the future. Of course, you may choose not to provide the Company with Personally Identifying Information. However, this choice may prevent the Company from providing you with legal updates or responding to any of your inquiries. Our server does not automatically record Personally Identifying Information. Such information can become known to the Company via this Website only when you voluntarily submit it.
Your knowledge and consent are required for the collection, use, or disclosure of your Personally Identifying Information. No information is collected without your express consent. By submitting Personally Identifying Information to the Company, you hereby consent to the Company’s collection, use and disclosure of the Personally identifying Information that you disclose to the Company.
The Company only collects the information that it needs in order to respond to your inquiries or provide you with legal updates.
Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention:
Your Personally Identifying Information is kept as accurately and completely as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used. You have the right to update, modify, amend or correct errors in your Personally Identifying Information by contacting The Company.
Unfortunately, neither the Company’s network nor data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect User’s information, The Company cannot ensure or warrant the security of member information. Thus, any information a User transmits to us is done so at the User’s own risk.
The Company will make its complete policies and practices relating to the management of your Personally Identifying Information readily available to you.
Upon request in writing, either by e-mail or letter, you will be informed of the existence, use or disclosure of your Personally Identifying Information and you will be given access to that information. The Company will assist any customer who informs us that they need assistance in preparing a request concerning Personally Identifying Information. You may also challenge, in writing either by e-mail or letter, the accuracy and completeness of the information and have it amended as appropriate, or request that the Company delete or correct any Personally Identifying Information contained in your file.
On occasion, the Company’s websites are connected by “hyperlinks” to other companies’ websites. Please note that the Company is not responsible in any way for the privacy practices of other websites and suggests that you review the privacy policies of those other companies’ websites before using them.
