Privacy Policy

Our privacy practices are designed to provide a high level of protection for your personal data

We collect information about our visitors in several different ways, and we use that information to fulfil your needs and analyse the effectiveness of our web site. In this Privacy Policy we provide information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we might use it and how we keep it secure. Our philosophy is centred on permission-based contact. As such, we handle the personal information you entrust us with, with the highest respect.

1. LINKS

Our website contains links to other web sites that we believe may be relevant to our visitors' needs. We do not have any control over these other web sites, and therefore we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information that you provide while visiting those sites. Those sites are not governed by this Privacy Policy, and if you have questions about how a site uses your information, please consult that site's privacy statement.

2. DO WE USE COOKIES?

A cookie is a small text file stored by your web browser on your computer's hard drive. Cookies allow us to provide you with a user-friendly registration and log-in process. They help us to retrieve statistical information about your visit to our site (e.g. number of visits, returning visitors, hits per page, navigation paths) and to analyse your site traffic patterns. A cookie cannot give us access to information stored on your computer or to information beyond what you provide to us. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. If you prefer not to receive cookies from our web site, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you choose to disable cookies from our web site, you can still access the restricted content of our web site, but you will be asked to logon every time you visit. Our cookies do not contain any personally-identifiable information.

3. DO WE USE WEB BEACONS?

Our website may from time to time use Web Beacons - also known as single pixel or clear GIFs - on its web sites to analyze traffic patterns such as the frequency of use of particular parts of the site. The data collected helps us learn what information is of most interest to our customers and what offers our customers would most like to see. If you do not want to assist us in improving our Web sites, you can “opt-out” of this web sites analysis by disabling JavaScript on your computer.

5. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

If you visit our website, we may collect two different types of information about you: personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information.

5.1 PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

Personally identifiable information means any information that may be used to identify you, such as your name, title, phone number, e-mail address, or postal address. In all circumstances, we only collect personally identifiable information if you choose to give it to us. The information we collect is used for a variety of purposes (e.g., to register you for a conference, to respond to requests for information, and to process your job application). We make every effort to disclose clearly how information is used at the point where it is collected so you can determine whether you wish to provide the information. Submitting voluntary information constitutes your consent to the use of the information for the stated purpose. When you click the “Submit” button on any of the Web forms found on our sites, you are indicating your voluntary consent to use of the information you submit for the purpose stated. You may choose to provide us with personally identifiable information for four main reasons: If you communicate with us through the “Contact Us” link on our web sites, we may ask you for information such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number so we can respond to your questions and comments. We also may use the information you provide to evaluate the quality of our products. To receive newsletters, announcements, etc. if you want to subscribe to one of our newsletters, we will need you to register and provide us with at least your email address. If you do so register, you should be aware that, if you open one of our email newsletters or announcements, we may record that event and/or any URLs you click on within the message. This helps us make sure that the newsletters and emails that we send to you are as effective as possible for you and for us. To access specific content - some content and activities on our site - for example, make a sales enquiry, respond to a survey, or register for an event may require in addition to your email address, your name, postal address, occupation and the name of your organization. They may require you to create a membership account where we collect additional personal information about you. In all cases, we only request personally identifiable information to the extent required to be able to answer your enquiries, inform you of important company or product news (where you requested to receive such info) or process your job application. We store this personally identifiable information on our own secure servers, and we retain it for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the information was collected or further processed or for any additional period as may be required by law. We do not use it for any other purpose than set out in this Privacy Policy nor will we share it with third parties.

5.2 NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

The non-personally identifiable information we collect is typical of many web sites and is collected purely to help us to understand our web site visitors better, and to learn which sections of our site are most and least popular. This information, which cannot be traced to you, includes the type of browser and processor you are using to view the site, an IP address. We may also track the pages visited within our site.

6. YOUR CONSENT

By using our web site, you consent to the collection and use of the information you provide to us in accordance with our Privacy Policy. You also acknowledge that we may change this Privacy Policy from time to time by updating this posting, without prior separate notice to you.

7. LEGAL DISCLOSURES

No personally identifiable information will be disclosed to any law enforcement agency or governmental agency except in response to: A subpoena, warrant or other process issued by a court of competent jurisdiction; A legal process having the same consequence as a court-issued request for information, or, Where such disclosure is necessary for us to enforce our legal rights pursuant to the laws of the jurisdiction from which such information was gathered, and there is a legal basis to do so.
