Because we may change this Policy from time to time, we recommend that you read it each time you visit our web site to make sure you are aware of any Policy changes that may affect you.
Our commitment to privacy
To make sure your Confidential Information remains confidential, we communicate these privacy guidelines to all of our employees. We discipline (up to and including termination of employment) any employees who view or use your Confidential Information for purposes other than providing services you have contracted to receive.
Collection of Confidential Information
We only collect your Confidential Information to provide information to you about our products and services.
We receive Confidential Information from you when you communicate with us by email, or register at our web site to receive announcements about our products and services or when you ask us to contact you about our products and services. We collect Confidential Information when you order products and services from us or from our direct partners. We only collect the items of Confidential Information which allow us to accomplish one of the above purposes. We will not collect any of your Confidential Information without your knowledge and consent.
You may visit our web site anonymously. This means we usually do not collect Confidential Information when you browse our web site. We don't even collect your email address. We do, however, collect general Internet information such as how often each of our web pages was accessed and the amount of time a visitor spent viewing each page. Even so, none of this data personally identifies you. We use it for the sole purposes of studying traffic patterns on our web site in order to make it more useful and to evaluate whether our marketing efforts are effectual.
Our web site is not intended to be used by anyone under the age of 18. We do not knowingly solicit Confidential Information from such persons.
The Alacriti web site may contain links to other sites. Alacriti does not share your Confidential Information with those web sites and is not responsible for their privacy practices, which may differ from ours in significant ways. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those web sites and the companies that operate them. However, web sites to which we link may use cookie technology to gather and store data about their visitors. Cookies contain a small amount of information, possibly including Confidential Information, which allows a web server to recognize you whenever you visit. Again, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the privacy and information collection practices of any web site you visit.
Access to your Confidential Information
You always have access to the Confidential Information we keep about you. If you want to review that Information, contact us by any of the methods identified in the "Contact Us" section below.
Cookies are text files that are stored temporarily or permanently on a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. We use two types of cookies on our web site: session ID cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies, which expire when you close your browser, allow you to more easily navigate our web site. On the other hand, persistent cookies are stored on your hard drive. You may remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your browser's "help" file. We link information we store in cookies with any Confidential Information you submit while visiting our web site.
From time to time we may place client testimonials on our web site. We will not do so until the client has given us permission. We will remove a client's testimonial if he/she asks us to do so. If you permit us to post a testimonial from you and you choose to disclose Confidential Information in the testimonial, others will have access to that information. We will not be responsible if anyone uses your testimonial information for any purpose.
Disclosure of Confidential Information
We will never disclose your Confidential Information to anyone except under circumstances described in this Policy. Only those employees who "need to know" your Confidential Information to provide services you contract to receive will have access to your Confidential Information.
We will not disclose your Confidential Information to anyone unless you instruct us to do so on your behalf. With your consent, we will provide any of your Confidential Information to any person you designate.
We will also disclose your Confidential Information if we are required to do so by law; for example, if we receive a subpoena from a court or a law enforcement agency.
Data security for your Confidential Information
We place a very high value on the security of all Confidential Information which comes into our possession.
We will never ask you to enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers or taxpayer identification numbers) on an unencrypted web site. All such data is collected on a web site which is capable of 128-bit secure socket layer technology (SSL) encryption. In addition, we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect your Confidential Information while it is in route to us. However, no method of data transmission or storage is totally secure and therefore we cannot guarantee that our security efforts will not be overcome. That is why we urge you to be diligent in protecting your Confidential Information while connected to the Internet.
We will never transmit any personal data that you provide to us over the public Internet. Any data we send you will be transmitted over a private network via secure, encrypted channels.
If you have questions about the security of your Confidential Information, please contact us by any of the methods identified in the "Contact Us" section below.
We may use other third parties to provide some of the services offered on our web site. If we do so, we will notify you so that you may decide, on a case-by-case basis, whether we are authorized to provide your Confidential Information to such agents.
Changes in this Privacy Statement
We may change this Policy from time to time. If we change this Policy, we will notify you by email or by posting a notice on our home page. Your continued subscription to services we offer after receiving a change notice means that you have agreed to such changes.
