Amplicom 's Commitment to Your Privacy
What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our Web site, you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you purposefully disclose that is collected on an individual basis and Web site use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our Web site.
1. Personal Information You Choose to Provide
In addition to providing the aforementioned information to us and to our partners, if you choose to keep in contact with us through email, we may retain the contents of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.
2. Web Site Use Information
Similar to other commercial Web sites, our Web site utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" (see explanation below, "What Are Cookies?") and Web server logs to collect information about how our Web site is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our Web site. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.
Using the Information You Provide to Us
In general, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we receive to notify you about important changes to our Web site, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. The lists used to send you product and service offers are developed and managed under our traditional corporate standards designed to safeguard the security and privacy of our customers' personal information. Of course, as a valued customer you will be given the opportunity, at least once annually, to notify us of your desire not to receive these offers.
What Are Cookies?
Cookies are a feature of Web browser software that allows Web servers to recognize the computer used to access a Web site. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by a user's Web browser on the user's hard drive. Cookies may remember what information a user accesses on one Web page to simplify following interactions with that Web site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user's transactions on related Web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from Web page to Web page and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
Cookies help us collect important business and technical statistics. The information in the cookies lets us trace the paths followed by users to our Web site as they move from one page to another. Web server logs allow us to count how many people visit our Web site and evaluate our Web site's visitor capacity. We do not use these technologies to capture your individual email address or any personally identifying information about you although they do permit us to send focused online banner advertisements or other such responses to you.
We use Web site browser software tools such as cookies and Web server logs to gather information about our Web site users' browsing activities, in order to constantly improve our Web site and better serve our customers. This information assists us to design and arrange our Web pages in the most user-friendly manner and to continually improve our Web site to better meet the needs of our customers and prospective customers.
How Do We Secure Information Transmissions?
When you send confidential personal credit card information to us on our Web site, a secure server software which we have in use encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. By encrypting the information it is scrambled before it is sent and decoded once it reaches our Web site.
Other emails that you may send to us may not be secure unless we advise you that security measures will be in place prior to your transmitting the information. For that reason, we ask that you do not send confidential information such as Social Security or account numbers to us through an unsecured email.
The Protection of Your Information
Information Security. We employ encryption/security software to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information we collect. It protects data from unauthorized access or disclosure, as well as accidental loss, alteration or destruction.
Evaluating Information Protection Practices. Occasionally, our operations and business practices are evaluated to ascertain whether or not they are in compliance with corporate policies and procedures governing the security, confidentiality and reliability of our information.
Employee Access, Training and Expectations. Our corporate principles, ethical standards, policies and practices reflect our commitment to the protection of customer information. As a general rule, we limit employee access to confidential information, and minimize the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons, processes and transactions only.
Is Information Disclosed To Outside Parties?
No. We do not share your information. We do not ever sell software.
Notification of Changes and New Services
Once in a while, we may use the information that we gather to advise you about significant changes to our Web site, new services and special offers we think you will find interesting or helpful.
You will be given the opportunity to notify us of your desire not to receive these offers by clicking on a response box when you receive such an offer, or by sending us an email request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
