Protecting the security and privacy of your personal data is important to us; therefore, we conduct our business in compliance with applicable laws on data privacy protection and data security. We hope the policy outlined below will help you understand what data we may collect, how we use and safeguard that data and with whom we may share it.
Through our web site, we will not collect any personal data about you (e.g. your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) unless you voluntarily choose to provide it. When you do provide us with personal data, we will usually use it to respond to your inquiry, process your order or provide you access to specific information or offers. To support our relationship with you, we may store and process personal data and share it with our worldwide affiliates to better understand your business needs and how we can improve our products and services; or we may use personal data to contact you about an offer in support of your business needs or to conduct online surveys to better understand your needs. If you choose not to have your personal data used to support our customer relationship (especially direct marketing or market research), we will respect your choice. We do not sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties, except to Simio affiliates.
When you access our web site, we may automatically collect non-personal data (e.g. type of Internet browser and operating system used, domain name of the web site from which you came, number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed). We may use this data and share it with our worldwide affiliates to monitor the attractiveness of our web sites and improve their performance or content.
When you view one of our web sites, we may store some data on your computer in the form of a "cookie" to automatically recognize your computer next time you visit. Cookies can help us in many ways, for example, by allowing us to tailor a Web site to better match your interests or to store your password to save you having to re-enter it each time. If you do not wish to receive cookies, please configure your Internet browser to erase all cookies from your computer's hard drive, block all cookies or to receive a warning before a cookie is stored.
To protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration and against unauthorized disclosure or access, we use technical and organizational security measures.
