When you create an account with us or participate in a company survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your first and last name, mailing address, phone number(s), email address(s), contact preferences, credit card, checking account, personal financial information, business partner information, and other information.
The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on the latest product announcements and upcoming events. It also helps us to improve our services, content, and advertising. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by writing a letter to us requesting to opt out and sending it to the Privacy Matters, c/o Clark Edu, 5406 West 11000 North Suite 103-414, Highland UT 84003 or e-mailing: email@example.com.
We also use personal information to help us develop, deliver, and improve our products, services, content, and advertising.
From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with us, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve our products, services, and customer communications.
If you enter into a sweepstake, contest, or similar promotion, we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.
We also collect non-personal information − data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, location, and the time zone where a product is used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, services, and advertising.
If we do combine non-personal information with personal information, the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that allows you to tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. We currently do not respond to browser “do not track” signals, but we do provide you the option to opt out of advertising.
As is true of most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.
In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on our website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.
Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether an email message has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate email messages sent to customers.
At times we may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with us to provide similar products and services, or that help us market to customers.
We share personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever those companies operate.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for us to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, the disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
We take precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
Our online services use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is collected. To use these services, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal information while it’s transmitted over the Internet.
When you use our products, services, or applications or post on an online forum, chat room, or social networking service, the personal information you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18 years of age. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 18, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
Our websites, products, applications, and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.
