ProteqsIT Online Privacy Statement & Copyright Information

ProteqsIT, Inc. respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information you share with us. This statement describes how ProteqsIT collects and uses your personal information to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information.

Information Collection

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a postal or physical address, other contact information, title, occupation, industry, personal interests, and other information when needed to provide a service or product or carry out a transaction you have requested.

When you browse our website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously registered with us. We do not automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have registered with us. Like many other commercial websites, the ProteqsIT website may use standard technologies, such as “cookies” and other HTML tools, to collect information about how you use the site or to record that you opened an email marketing message. Please go to “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies” below for more information.

ProteqsIT collects personal information when you register with ProteqsIT for a product download, when you request information through Web forms, when you use certain ProteqsIT products or services, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list or when you submit your personal information to ProteqsIT for any other reason. From time to time, ProteqsIT receives personal information from business partners and vendors. ProteqsIT only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this Privacy Statement and applicable laws.

The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and ProteqsIT. Unless you request deactivation of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by ProteqsIT to verify compliance with the agreement, log software licenses granted, track software downloaded from those pages, or track usage of other applications available on those pages.

Notice

ProteqsIT will not transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent, except under the limited conditions described under the discussion entitled “Information Sharing and Disclosure” below.

You may “opt out” receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Privacy Statement unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by sending us a request via email.

We may also use your information to send you, or to have our business partners send you, direct marketing information or contact you for market research.
