ArgenTech Solutions Privacy Policy

  News/Uncategorised/ArgenTech Solutions Legal Notice

 

The privacy practices described in this Privacy Policy, including any changes we may inform you of or post to our web site, apply to our services available under the domain and sub-domains of www.ArgenTechSolutions.com and www.ArgenTechSolutions.net and apply generally to all of our websites and wholly owned subsidiary websites. By visiting this website, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree, please do not use or access our services. 


As described below, information that personally identifies you may be collected by ArgenTech Solutions, disclosed to third parties, and used by third parties and ArgenTech Solutions. This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect about you and what may happen to that information. Although this policy may seem lengthy, we have prepared a detailed policy because we believe you should know as much as possible about ArgenTech Solutions’ practices. All ArgenTech Solutions’ controlled websites and the websites of our subsidiaries operate under similar privacy practices as described in this Privacy Policy and, subject to the requirements of applicable law, we strive to provide a consistent set of privacy practices globally. As provided in this Privacy Policy, ArgenTech Solutions is committed to safeguarding your privacy when you provide us with personal information. We strive to treat your personal information as safely and securely as reasonably possible. Please read the following privacy policy to better understand how your information will be treated as you use our numerous offerings. We've organized our privacy statement in Q&A format to address the most frequently asked questions. If you have any questions after reading through our statement, please let us know. We want to hear from you! You can e-mail us at the following address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information with ArgenTech Solutions’ partners who agree to follow appropriate customer data management practices to manage your entitlements and contractual relationship with ArgenTech Solutions, or with your consent. We occasionally employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, ensuring accuracy of data, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of these commitments. As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy subsidiaries or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to these pre-existing commitments.

What information does ArgenTech Solutions collect from me?

ArgenTech Solutions may collect customer information in a number of ways, but the two most common are during website registration or site personalization and product or service registration or enrollment. In some instances, you may visit some of our sites and use some of our services without providing information to us. The information requested may vary depending on which product, service or site you are using or accessing. We typically ask for your basic contact information, such as your name, title, company name, e-mail address, postal addresses, telephone numbers and the industry that you work in. As an example, we may also ask for unique identifiers, such as a mother’s family name or a keyword, and for financial information, such as account or credit card number to verify your user identity when you make purchases. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence or communication. Information on how you communicated with us may also be recorded and can include your e-mail address including country domain, the language you selected for viewing order forms or other documents, your browser type, the currency in which you viewed prices if such feature is available, your use of a secure or insecure Web page, the return e-mail address shown in any e-mail message from you, the return address on any envelope or facsimile number on any facsimile, or the telephone number from which you called. ArgenTech Solutions may also clean-up and standardize data when it is collected. For example, ArgenTech Solutions may abbreviate the term: “street” to “St.” or correct a spelling mistake made when ArgenTech Solutions collected the data. In addition to the information we obtain at the initial stage of registration, we may ask you for information at other times, such as when you make a purchase or use a service on an ArgenTech Solutions site; when you participate in a contest, survey, or promotion; when you submit a listing for a Web site; or when you report a problem with one of our sites or services. In most cases, the more specific information you provide, the better we are able to personalize your Web experience. Finally, ArgenTech Solutions collects information about its Web site guest visitors and members in general, which does not necessarily identify the member, using our server log files and some of the methods described under "cookies" below.

Why does ArgenTech Solutions gather this information?

ArgenTech Solutions’ primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with a personalized experience on our web sites and/or with our products and services. We may also use your information to address, and contact you on, issues about the use of our products and services. This includes personalization services, interactive communications, online commerce, and many other types of services, many of which are completely free to you. Depending on your wishes, we may use your contact information to provide you with information about products or services offered by ArgenTech Solutions or by our partners. By knowing accurate information about you, ArgenTech Solutions is able to deliver better service and more relevant content to our individual users.

How does ArgenTech Solutions use my information?

ArgenTech Solutions uses your information to recommend ArgenTech Solutions products and services and to enable you to take advantage of the many features they offer. Once you register, you are no longer anonymous to ArgenTech Solutions. The information you provide during product or service registration or enrollment will be used by ArgenTech Solutions to register you as an authorized user of an ArgenTech Solutions product or service or to issue your authorization code or password, which allows you to access products or services. We may also use this information to send you materials describing products and services offered by ArgenTech Solutions or by our partners, if you have indicated that you wish to receive these materials. We use other information we collect to get a better understanding of our subscriber base. The more insight we have into you-the people who use ArgenTech Solutions’ sites on a daily basis-the better we can serve you. Therefore, we analyze our users' demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us. Our research and analysis is done on an aggregate basis and does not identify you personally. Information that we obtain from voluntary programs such as surveys, promotions, and contests may be subject to additional or different terms, or may be used in a slightly different way. If different terms do apply, details of the shared use of this information will be outlined in the specific terms and conditions or rules of these special surveys, promotions, or contests. Please be sure to read those specific terms and conditions because they may alter what is written in this privacy policy on a case-by-case basis.

With whom, and how, does ArgenTech Solutions share my information?

1.     Our Business Partners, Strategic Alliance Companies, and Advertisers: If you wish to receive information from our partners or from companies with which we have a strategic alliance, unless you request us to, ArgenTech Solutions generally will not provide your information to our partners for them to send you mailings; only ArgenTech Solutions (or mailing agents working on behalf of ArgenTech Solutions and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct mailings. However, if you submit information to ArgenTech Solutions to use or purchase a product or service of a partner or a company with which we have a strategic alliance, we may need to share this information with those partners so that they may process your orders and ship, supply, maintain, or service the goods or services that you requested and you may be contacted by them. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service. If you provide information directly with another company reached through an ArgenTech Solutions site, that company will have control over the information you provide. From time to time, we share aggregated data regarding the subscribers and users of our services. Some of these data may include the data obtained as described in the "cookies" section, but no personally identifiable information is included in these types of statistics. Additionally, under confidentiality agreements, ArgenTech Solutions may match user information with third-party data. Also, please pay attention to which services you register for when you register for an ArgenTech Solutions’ site or service. In some instances we may offer you the choice to register with certain of our partners at the same time you register with ArgenTech Solutions. If you choose to register with a partner, the information that you provide in registration is also subject to our partner's privacy policy, and our partner's policies as to the use of information may differ from ArgenTech Solutions’ policy. Again, we encourage you to review our partner's policies before you enter into agreements with them.

 

2.     Ordering Products or Services: When you order a product or service from ArgenTech Solutions, we (or our service provider) use your name, e-mail address, delivery address, and credit card number and expiration date (or financial information) as part of a credit check. This information allows us (or our service provider) to process the order and deliver the product or service. We ask for your telephone number to enable us to contact you if there is a problem with your order or the delivery of a product or service. In the event you have asked for the delivery of tangible goods, we may need to share your telephone number with the carrier delivering the goods. When you order a product or service from a company linked to one of our websites, it may be necessary for us to share certain limited information with that company in order to process and complete your purchase or other transaction. In such cases, we share the minimum information necessary to complete the transaction and only share that information when you make a purchase or engage in a transaction — not when you simply visit and leave our site. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service.

 

3.     Within ArgenTech Solutions: Your information may be shared within ArgenTech Solutions, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries for the purposes of providing you with products or services you have ordered or for which you have registered and to provide information to you about our products or services in accordance with your wishes. ArgenTech Solutions may also disclose account information in other special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating ArgenTech Solutions’ Terms of Service or intellectual property rights. The same policy applies in cases where we believe an individual may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) ArgenTech Solutions’ rights or property, other users of an ArgenTech Solutions site or service, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. ArgenTech Solutions may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services. We may disclose information to third parties such as Internet service providers for administrative purposes that we deem necessary to deliver or maintain services or products. An ArgenTech Solutions site or service may also display entity names as part of the registration process to facilitate an individual registrant’s affiliation with the correct entity. As we continue to develop and expand our products and services, we may sell or buy businesses or product or service lines. In such transactions, customer information is generally one of the assets transferred.

What about ArgenTech Solutions partner services, strategic alliance companies, or linked sites?

Certain products and services are made available through an ArgenTech Solutions site but are provided by partners, either through their own web sites or on web sites that they share with ArgenTech Solutions. When ordering, using or purchasing products or services from these partners, you will be entering into an agreement with that partner, and not with ArgenTech Solutions. In these cases, this privacy policy does not apply; instead, the privacy policy of the partner actually providing the goods and services will apply. Generally, we use cookies to: Remind us of who you are and to access your profile (stored on our computers) in order to deliver to you a better and more personalized service. This cookie is set when you register or "Log On" and is modified when you "Log Off" of our services. ArgenTech Solutions also collects IP Addresses for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers.

I'd rather not have cookies stored on my computer. Is there any way to work around them?

Yes, you do have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you can choose to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies, however, you will be unable to use those ArgenTech Solutions’ services that require registration or customization in order to participate. You may still view ArgenTech Solutions sites in a non-personalized manner without cookies, though some areas of our sites may not be accessible or function properly if you choose to reject all cookies. If you choose to accept cookies from us, you are granting us your consent to set cookies on your computer.

ArgenTech Solutions strives to protect your personal information. For all ArgenTech Solutions sites, we use advanced security technology to ensure that your personal data remain private within our site. However, since no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or which we transmit to you from our online products or services.

Where is my data stored?

Your data may be processed and stored on ArgenTech Solutions computers in the United States or other countries. Your data may also be processed and stored in other countries where services are being provided by a licensee, agent or service provider of ArgenTech Solutions. In such cases, ArgenTech Solutions and ArgenTech Solutions’ licensees, agents or service providers are bound to all the terms and conditions of this privacy policy. You hereby consent to the transfer of any personal data to the United States or any other country outside of your home country where ArgenTech Solutions or its licensee, agent or service provider is providing services or processing or storing personal data in accordance with the terms of this privacy policy.

What else should I know about my privacy?

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through e-mail, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. As ArgenTech Solutions expands its online offerings, we will update our privacy policy to apply to them. Please check this page on a regular basis for updates.
