EGIA is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the EGIA website and governs data collection and usage. By using the EGIA website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
EGIA collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. EGIA also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by EGIA. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by EGIA for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the EGIA website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through EGIA public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: EGIA does not read any of your private online communications.
EGIA encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from EGIA so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. EGIA is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on webites outside of the EGIA and EGIA family of websites.
EGIA collects and uses your personal information to operate the EGIA website and deliver the services you have requested. EGIA also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from EGIA and its affiliates. EGIA may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
EGIA does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. EGIA may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, EGIA may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to EGIA, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
EGIA does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
EGIA keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within EGIA, in order to determine what EGIA services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within EGIA to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
EGIA websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on EGIA or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of EGIA; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of EGIA, or the public.
The EGIA website use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize EGIA’s pages, or register with EGIA site or services, a cookie helps EGIA to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same EGIA website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the EGIA features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the EGIA services or websites you visit.
EGIA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. EGIA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
EGIA will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. EGIA encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how EGIA is protecting your information.
EGIA welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that EGIA has not adhered to this Statement, please contact EGIA at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
