Privacy Policy

DataTracks(“DataTracks” or “We” ) owns and operates the website located at www.DataTracks.com (“Site”). DataTracks wants you to feel comfortable using the Site, so we have created this Privacy Policy to inform you what information we may collect from you on the Site and how we may use that information. Please take a moment to review the terms of this Privacy Policy. By using the Site, you agree to accept the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Site. This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected on the Site. It does not apply to information that we may collect by means other than on the Site.

PLEASE NOTE: Many of the services provided by DataTracks, including those provided through the Site, are subject to separate agreements between DataTracks and you (each, a “Definitive Agreement”). Such terms may contain provisions related to your personal information and other information submitted by you through the Site. In the event of any conflict between such terms and the terms of this Privacy Policy, the Definitive Agreements shall supersede and replace this Privacy Policy with respect to such information except to the extent the Definitive Agreement expressly states otherwise.

I. Personal Information

A. Active Collection and Use:

You are required to provide some personal information, such as your name and email address, in order to access the Site and the information available on the Site. When you register, you will have an option to choose to subscribe to our email list. If you have subscribed to our electronic mailing list and wish at any point to stop receiving it, simply follow the opt-out instructions that are included in each email. If you provide us with personal information, we will retain and may use that information to contact or respond to you. We may also use personal information to customize the services we provide to you and to ensure compliance with DataTracks’ policies and applicable laws.

B. Aggregate Information and Passive Information Collection:

From time to time, we may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Site, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Site, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. We collect this information through the use of technologies such as “cookies” and “IP addresses”, which are discussed in greater detail below. Our system may also automatically collect operational information about the technology you use, such as your browser, type of computer, operating systems, Internet service providers and the domain name of the Site from which you linked to our Site. We collect this information in order to determine which areas of the Site are most popular and to enhance the Site for visitors. We may also use this information for security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches and to provide you with a safe online environment.

C. IP Addresses:

An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” webpages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. DataTracks collects IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to third parties and to track the use of the Site. When visitors request pages from the Site, our servers log the visitors’ IP addresses. It is not our practice to link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a visitor’s session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. However, we reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify a visitor only when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with the Site’s policies or to protect DataTracks, the Site, its visitors, or others.

D. Cookies and Beacons:

Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you’re at the Site. The use of cookies is an industry standard — you’ll find them at most websites. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Information such as the total number of visitors and pages viewed is most easily tracked with cookies. We may use the information from cookies to make improvements and updates to the Site and to tailor our services to our visitors’ needs. For example, the Site allows visitors to increase the font size of the text contained on the Site to make it easier to read. Cookies enable the Site to automatically use your preferred font size the next time you visit the Site. You always have the option of disabling cookies using your browser preferences. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, please be aware that some features of the Site may not function properly or may be slower if you refuse cookies.

Site pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons—also referred to as single-pixel gifs—that permit DataTracks to count users who have visited those pages and for other related website statistics—(e.g., recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity). Web beacons are not used to access your personal information on the Sites; they are solely used to compile aggregated statistics concerning the use of the Sites. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, the time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides.

II. Disclosure of Personal Information

A. Personally Identifiable Information:

We may use information collected via this Site to improve the content of our Web Site, to customize the Site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes, and for any other purpose specified. We may make full use of all information acquired through this Site that is not in personally identifiable form.

Except for the limited situations discussed in this Privacy Policy, we will not share your personally identifiable information with any third parties. We may sometimes use third parties to perform certain services for us, such as hosting the Site, sending postal mail and providing data analysis. We may provide personally identifiable information to those businesses when that information is necessary for them to respond to your requests or otherwise perform their duties. As DataTracks develops, we may buy other businesses or their assets or sell our business assets. Customer information is generally one of the business assets involved in such transactions. Thus, in the event that DataTracks or all of its assets are acquired, or in cases of liquidation, dissolution, reorganization or other transfer of the business, customer information, including any visitor information collected through the Site, may be one of the transferred assets. Finally, DataTracks reserves the right to disclose visitor information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) DataTracks’ rights or property, other visitors, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. DataTracks also reserves the right to disclose visitor information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. However, we will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.

B. Aggregate Information:

We may group information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the Site to our existing or potential business partners or other third parties, or in response to a government request. However, please be assured that this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to the Site.

III. Links to Other Sites:

Please be aware that when you are on the Site, you could be directed without any redirect notice or prompts to other sites that are beyond our control. There may be links to other sites from the Site’s pages that take you outside our Site. These other sites may send their own cookies to visitors, collect data or solicit personal information. The privacy policies of these other sites may be significantly different from this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites and cannot guarantee the security of any of your personal information collected there.

IV. Security:

Protecting the security of your personal information is very important to us. When you transmit personal information from your computer to our servers, your information is protected by both a “firewall” (a combination of computer hardware and software that helps keep unauthorized visitors from accessing information within our computer network) and industry standard SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. Once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable precautions to ensure its security on our systems. Unfortunately, data transmission over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while DataTracks strives to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personal information.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. If you have access to password-protected features, never share your password with anyone else, notify us promptly if you believe your password security has been breached, and remember to log off of this site before you leave your computer. Similarly, any personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data that you disclose through online forums hosted on this Site, may be collected and used by others. We recommend caution when giving out personal information to others in these public online forums.

V. Use of Site by Minors:

This Site is not intended for use by persons under the age of 18. Persons under the age of 18 are strictly prohibited from using this Site and from submitting any personal information. If we discover that any persons under the age of 18 have submitted personal information on this Site, we will use all commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.

VI. Changes to These Terms:

The terms of this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will notify you of any material changes to this Privacy Policy by posting a notice on the homepage of the Site for a reasonable period of time after such changes are made, that this Privacy Policy has been updated, and by changing the “Last Modified” date at the top of this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to check this page periodically for any changes. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.
