Information Collection and Use
By setting a session ID cookie on our site we are able to track any interactive transactions providing additional security to the user. If users reject the cookie, they may still use our site though they will not be able to place orders.
Communications from the Site
Special Offers and Updates
These are the instances in which we will share usersâ€™ personal information:
Our users are given the opportunity to â€˜opt-outâ€™ of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for information. For example, our order form has an â€˜opt-outâ€™ mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but donâ€™t want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists.
Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, AKTIV Software Corporation, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our usersâ€™ information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just â€˜surfingâ€™.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our usersâ€™ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment, in a locked facility.
If users have any questions about the security at our Web site, users can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information
If a userâ€™s personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate usersâ€™ personally identifiable information. This can usually be done by emailing our Customer Support.
Notification of Changes
If, however, we are going to use usersâ€™ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our Web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
