WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED ON THE SITE
Every time you visit the Site, the following information is automatically obtained and compiled: your internet protocol (IP) address and the domain name registry information associated with that IP address; identification of the internet browser, operating system and hardware platform you are using; the date and time of your visit; the name and address (URL) of the web page you viewed immediately prior to accessing the Site; your entire query (if any) that was entered into a search engine which led you to the Site; and any other "click stream" data. This information is stored in our log files. Occasionally, if your browser is not configured to prevent disclosure of such information, the following information may also be revealed: your name, e-mail address, home and work addresses, telephone and fax numbers and any plain text commentary. Additionally, the complete record of your actions at the Site, including all pages visited, time spent at each page, the information sent or received and the names of all files uploaded or downloaded is collected. This tracking information may be compiled by us in the aggregate and made available to third parties primarily to identify demographic data regarding our customers.
We will also collect personal information from you when you provide your personal information to us, such as by setting up a user account and password, logging in as a registered user of the Site, providing information in your account(s), communicating with us by telephone, e-mail, or otherwise or if you complete an entry form to participate in a contest, promotion or survey. As a result of these actions, you might supply us with personal information, such as your name, date of birth, e-mail and postal addresses, telephone number(s), product interest information and financial information and, in certain circumstances, your opinions and individual preferences.
HOW IS MY PERSONAL INFORMATION USED?
To better serve you, we may combine information you give us online, by telephone or in writing about your product interests. We may also combine these with readily available demographic information to enable us to communicate with you, by e-mail or otherwise, about our products, services, surveys, promotions, special offer, and contests. We also collect this information in order to:
- a. Maintain contact with you and provide you with ongoing personalized service and help us to better understand and respond to your needs;
- b. Develop, improve and market our products and services and manage our business; and
- c. Help us to meet applicable legal and regulatory requirements.
We also use this information to measure interest in the various areas of our Site, to ensure that links on the Site facilitate easy navigation and to help make the Site more interesting and informative. Except as described below, any personal information that we disclose to third parties is done in the aggregate on a non-personally identifiable basis and is used primarily to identify demographic data regarding our customers.
Any information you submit to the Site is submitted on a non-confidential basis. CIELO is under no obligation to refrain from reproducing, publishing or otherwise using such information in any way or for any purpose. CIELO shall be free to use the content of any such communications, including any ideas, inventions, concepts, techniques or know-how disclosed therein, for any purpose, including developing, manufacturing and/or marketing products or services.
TO WHOM MAY MY PERSONAL INFORMATION BE DISCLOSED?
We will not disclose your personal information to any non-affiliated third party without your prior consent, other than as provided below:
- We may disclose your personal information to any CIELO third parties, so that it may communicate with you (whether by e-mail, telephone, post or otherwise) and provide you with promotional materials and additional information about its products, services, promotions and special offers that may be of interest to you, or collect and use that information subject to and for other purposes contemplated by this Policy and the Terms and Conditions of Use.
- We may transfer personal information to non-affiliated third parties for processing on our behalf (such as fulfillment services, technical support, delivery services, and financial institutions) pursuant to agreements that prohibit the third parties from using or disclosing the personal information other than for the purpose of processing and which impose security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. These third parties are only provided with the personal information necessary to perform their specific service. You acknowledge that, in the event that a third party processor is located in a country other than the one you reside in, your personal information may be processed and stored in that country and that country's government(s), courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your personal information under the laws of that country.
- We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law, in response to legal or regulatory process and law enforcement requests, to government authorities that have asserted a lawful right to access such information, to our legal counsel, or as necessary to protect the property, interests and rights of CIELO.
