What information do we collect on the Site?
We collect two general types of information from Site users: (1) non-personal information concerning the use of the Site and (2) personal information that identifies or can be used to identify or contact an individual.
- Non-Personal Information: As is the case with many Web sites, our servers automatically collect your browser type and IP address when you visit the Site. In addition, we may use standard tracking technologies (e.g., cookies, local shared objects, and pixel tags) and website analytics tools to monitor and better understand user behavior on the Site. Data captured may include, for example, the referring page that linked you to the Site, the country from which you are conducting your browsing session, the next Web site you visit when you leave the Site, and any search terms you have entered on the Site or a referral site. Such data does not identify you personally.
- Personal Information: The personal information we collect is limited to information you submit to us. For example, we may collect your e-mail address or other information you provide when you contact us through the Site. We may also collect names, home addresses, or other types of personal information from our investors and business partners to help verify that they are authorized to access the pages of our website dedicated to them, if any such pages exist.
How do we use your information?
We consider the personal information that we receive to be confidential. If you provide Personal Information for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Information in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For example, if you contact us by e-mail, we will use the Personal Information you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. Also, if you provide Personal Information in the course of using the Site, we will use your Personal Information to adequately respond to your interest in us, send you information about us and to monitor your use of such services. We will not use your personal information without your consent, except in accordance with this policy.
We use the non-personal information collected about Site visits, including the pages you view, information you search for, and the average time spent on our Site, in the aggregate to better understand our audience and increase the functionality and user-friendliness of our Site. Aggregate information is anonymous.
Sharing with Third Parties
We generally do not share personal information collected through the Site. We may, however, share your personal information in certain cases, including, but not limited to: (i) with trusted third parties who provide services to us, (ii) as required by law and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or those of third parties, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or comply with a court order or other legal process, or (iii) in connection with a corporate change including a merger, acquisition or sale of assets.
In addition, the third parties that support our website analytics tools may be able to view aggregate Site usage information that we obtain.
While we endeavor to protect the security and integrity of Personal Information in our care, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that any information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our system or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers.
Links to Third-Party Web Sites
Our Site may contain links, banners, widgets or advertisements that lead to other Web sites, including personal blogs written or edited by members of our staff. We are not responsible for these other sites, and so their privacy policies (not this Policy) will govern the collection and use of your information on them. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of such Web sites to understand how your information is treated.
Through the Site, you can choose to access certain social media websites and services that are owned and/or controlled by third parties (including, without limitation, Facebook and Twitter) (such websites and services, collectively, the “Social Media Services”). When you elect to access and use the Social Media Services, you will be sharing your information (which will include personal information if you elect to share such information) with those Social Media Services. As with other Third Party Sites, the information that you share with the Social Media Services will be governed by the privacy policies and terms of service of the providers of such Social Media Services and not by the polices and procedures we describe here. The manner in which Social Media Services use, store and disclose your information is governed by the policies of the applicable Social Media Services provider, and, as a result, we shall not have any liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of Social Media Services that may be enabled within and/or otherwise accessible through the Site.
