1. Information Collected on the Site
We do not request or require any information from anonymous visitors to the Site. We collect personal information only from those users who wish to conduct business transactions on the Site and who have registered on the Site ("Registered Users"). Personal information means information about an identifiable individual and may include your name, address, telephone and fax number, e-mail address, financial information, such as a credit card number and employment-related information, such as may be found on a resume or job application. Personal information does not include business contact information (e.g. office address, telephone number) in those jurisdictions which do not recognize such information as being personal information. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any User ID which may be assigned to you, as well as any account number, account name, or passwords, if applicable, for the services you utilize through the Site.
We will deactivate accounts of Registered Users that have been inactive for an extended period of time.
Registered Users may access and change their information at any time via the Site as described in Section 7 below.
The Site does not use persistent or stored cookies; however, it does use temporary or per-session cookies. Temporary or per-session cookies act as a randomly generated session ID; they last only while the Registered User is logged onto the Web site, and are cancelled at the end of the session (i.e., the Registered User logs out of the Site or closes their Web browser program). The Site uses temporary cookies for security purposes. Each time a Registered User logs onto the Site, the Site server generates a temporary session ID, which it associates with the user's login name, password and computer during that particular session. This allows the Registered User to move from page to page in the Site during a specific session, without having to re-enter the user login name and/or password. The temporary cookie allows the Site server to continuously verify that the user is a permitted user as the user moves from page to page during a specific session. When the Registered User logs out of the Site the temporary session ID is cancelled, and is removed from the temporary memory of the user's computer; and the association in the Site server between the temporary session ID and the specific user login name and password is also terminated.
We also use log files for anonymous site usage analysis. A "log file" is a data file that records a Registered User's activity while using the Site.
We store information received from Registered Users on secure computers. Only a small number of our employees and/or contractors have physical access to these computers. We use firewalls and other security technology to prevent our computers from being accessed by unauthorized persons.
While we have taken measures to protect Registered Users' information, please know that (i) no computer system is immune from intrusion; and (ii) information transmitted to the Site may need to pass through many systems in order to process such information. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the absolute security or confidentiality of information transmitted to the Site.
4. Provision of Information to Others
When you submit personal information through this Site, you understand and agree that this information may be transferred across national boundaries and may be stored and processed in any of the countries in which we transact business, including, without limitation, the United States. You also acknowledge that in certain countries or with respect to certain activities, the collection, transferring, storage, and processing of your information may be undertaken by our trusted vendors. Such vendors are bound by contract not to use your personal information for their own purposes and to treat the information as confidential.
When ordering products or services on the Site, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
If we sell assets (or the assets of a division or subsidiary) to another entity, or we (or a division or subsidiary) are acquired by, or merged with, another entity, we may provide to such entity customer information that is related to that part of our business that was sold to or merged with the other entity without your consent.
