WHAT WE DO WITH OUR CUSTOMER´S INFORMATION
We may use the information we collect to contact our customers through both email and regular mail to alert them of new products and services or announcements. We use demographic and profile data to tailor our visitor´s experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences. We make every reasonable effort to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of personal information under our control. Our security policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary. You always have the option to instruct us not to use your name, address, e–mail address, etc. beyond providing you with the product, information or service you requested.
Each time you visit our website we automatically recognize your IP address, Internet service provider, operating system platform, and browser type. We also collect statistical information on which pages and images are accessed at our site, however you cannot be identified as an individual based on our website log files. We also track statistical information from our electronic newsletter campaigns such as number of impressions and number of click–throughs, however, they are not reported on a per subscriber basis.
OPT–IN / OPT–OUT TOOLS
We take the issue of unwanted email seriously therefore we provide the necessary tools to help assure and enforce the opt–in and opt–out nature of the service. Visitors may opt–in from the website or from the “subscribe” link provided on the bottom of each electronic newsletter. Each visitor that opts in is sent notification by email and is given the option to unsubscribe just in case that they have been subscribed in error or without their consent. Each electronic newsletter message that we send has an “unsubscribe” link. This gives the customer the option to be removed from the subscriber database so that they do not receive future mailings. We also provide opt–out protection so that when an email address is removed, the system remembers that you have opted–out and prevents you from being mistakenly re–added to the subscriber list.
We do not condone nor support UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email) or SPAM. We work with all of our customers to make sure they understand and abide by common principals of email protocol and “opt–in” policy.
Our web, email and database servers are hosted in a highly secure, state–of–the–art data center with the latest in firewall protection. Our servers always have the latest security updates from the manufacturers. Power to our servers is supplied from two separate power substations and we are serviced by fiber optic data feeds from 2 separate carriers with geographically diverse routes (2 feeds from different nodes, using different paths). Data is backed up on a nightly basis.
