Internet Privacy Practices
What types of information may Privaris collect about me?
Privaris may collect non-identifying information, such as the date and time of your visit, your originating domain name, your browser type, and the pages you hit or browse on our Site.
Privaris may collect identifying information for a person or business, if that information is provided voluntarily by you in a form, email, etc. We may ask you to provide such information for specific transactions or to provide marketing information about Privaris’ services and products. For example, when you inquire about a product, we may ask for contact information such as your name, address, e-mail, and company. You may always choose not to provide this identifying or business information by foregoing the submission and transaction.
From time to time, we may also ask you voluntarily to provide information about your preferences and interests so that we may tailor the online experience of the Site. You may always choose not to provide answers regarding your preferences and interests.
How does Privaris use my information?
Our primary goal in collecting personally identifying information is to provide you with a service, product, or information about services and products (e.g., such as announcements of product updates). Second, we may collect non-identifying information about internet traffic on our Site in order to better manage our Site resources and to manage the materials on the Site.
Do other companies or people have access to personally identifiable information I provide to Privaris?
When you choose to provide information to Privaris, please keep in mind that you are providing it to Privaris, its affiliates, subsidiaries, divisions, and distributors. Privaris may share your voluntarily provided identifiable and non-identifying information with these related parties.
In addition, when you visit a Privaris Site you may be asked to provide voluntarily personally identifying information in the course of a requested transaction, as described above. We may use identifying information and share it with unrelated third parties when it is reasonably necessary to fulfill a request by you for a service, product, or piece of information. Otherwise, our policy is to avoid sharing such personally identifiable information to others without prior notice to you.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Privaris may disclose personally identifying information or other nonpublic personal information to protect against criminal activity, to comply with authorized civil, criminal, or regulatory investigations, or to the extent permitted or required under state or federal law.
Advertisements, Links, and Third Party Sites.
The owners of unrelated web sites, such as online retailers, advertisers, unrelated sites that we may link to, or web sites that link to the Privaris Site may collect personal information directly from you.
Privaris takes commercially reasonable procedures to protect the information it collects online. However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. Privaris does not guarantee the security of its information databases, nor does it guarantee that the information you choose to supply will not be intercepted while you transmit it from your computer, over the internet, and to the Privaris systems.
What information do web servers automatically collect?
Web servers hosting the Privaris Site automatically collect certain non-personally identifying information, such as the date, time, which pages each user visits, and the address or domain name of the users’ internet service provider, etc. This information is used for various administrative purposes, including internal web site review, the tailoring of information to categories of visitors, analysis of web site resources, and web site traffic audits.
What are cookies and does Privaris use them?
What is Privaris’ policy regarding information from minors?
This Site is not intended for minors. Privaris does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 18 years of age. If you are a minor, you are not authorized to use this Site or to provide information to Privaris.
This notice updates and replaces any previous notices from Privaris about the privacy, security, and protection of information provided to this Site. You may have other privacy protections under applicable state law. We may amend this privacy notice at any time. If required by applicable law, then we will inform you of those changes.
