Collection and Use of Personal Information
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify you, such as, your name, title, phone number, email address, or mailing address.
In general, you can browse our web site without giving us any personal information. We use our own product, Live Person and LinkUStats, to analyze traffic to this web site in order to understand our customer's and visitor's needs and to continually improve our site for them. These programs collect only anonymous, aggregate statistics, allow us to view search engine keywords used to find our website, or may contain your past information if you chatted with an operator via Live Person in the past.
If you want to subscribe to our New Feature notification newsletter, we ask you to simply provide your business email address. In that case, we use your email address only in connection with providing you the newsletter and for no other purpose.
Additional activities on our site require you to be registered; for example, to access our website admin or certain demos. As part of the registration process, we collect additional personal information. We use that information for several general purposes: to tell you about products, services if you so request; to fulfill your request; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information or to verify the accuracy of our records. Some activities require additional personal information. For example, to fulfill online orders for product and support, we require you to enter credit card information, and you may have the option to provide a separate shipping address.
Disclosure of Personal Information
LinkUSystems may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in connection with a sale, merger, transfer, exchange or other disposition (whether of assets, stock or otherwise) of all or a portion of a business of LinkUSystems and/or its subsidiaries or to (1) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process served on LinkUSystems or this web site; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of LinkUSystems and this web site; (3) enforce its agreements with you, or (4) act in urgent circumstances to protect personal safety or the public.
Children and Privacy
Our web site does not offer information intended to attract children. LinkUSystems does not knowingly solicit personal information from children under the age of 13.
Security of Personal Information
When you submit credit card, email and physical address information to us, we use a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) helps protect your information as it travels over the Internet by encrypting that information before it is sent to us. We have also implemented industry-standard security mechanisms and procedures to protect data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
A cookie is a small text file containing information that a web site transfers to your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes and allows us to analyze our site traffic patterns. A cookie can not give us access to your computer or to information beyond what you provide to us. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies; consult your browser's manual or online help if you want information on restricting or disabling the browser's handling of cookies. If you disable cookies, you can still view the publicly available information on our web site. If are using a shared computer and you have cookies turned on, be sure to log off when you finish.
