How we gather information about our customers

We collect information about our customers through a variety of methods. These methods include forms on our Web site, our software or service registration and licensing procedures, attendance or participation in product training or trade show events, industry groups and organizations and publications, and through direct communication such as phone conversations and e-mails.

In our effort to provide you with products or services we may at times ask you to submit information about yourself. You never have to answer these questions. However, if you should elect to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with some of these services dependent upon the collection of this information.

Some of our Web pages use "cookies" so that we can better serve you with tailored information when you return to our site or a page in our site. Cookies are identifiers that a Web site can send to your browser and that are stored on your computer to facilitate your next visit to our site. It may do such things as store the fact that you have registered for a seminar so that the next time you visit the site we recognize you as a previous registrant. We may also use clear GIFs on some pages within our Web site. Clear GIFs and cookies make your Web experience quicker and more convenient. You can, if you wish, set your browser to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, some areas of our site may not function properly.

How we use information about our customers

We use your information to support and enhance our relationship with you; for example, to process your purchase, provide service and support, and share product, service and company news and offerings with you. We do not sell, rent, or lease our customer lists or your personal information to third parties.

We only share your personal data outside Placeways with your consent; as required by law or to protect Placeways, our customers, or the public; or with companies that help us fulfill our obligations with you, and then only with partners who share our commitment to protecting your privacy and data. We may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that we feel 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.

Placeways may provide your personal information (including credit card information) to our agents for purposes of processing and/or fulfillment of transactions, including product orders that are conducted through this site.

You may opt out of our marketing list

We offer you the ability to "opt-out" of receiving certain marketing communications. You may stop the delivery of future informational or promotional e-mail from Placeways by following the specific instructions in the e-mail you receive. The instructions explain how to stop receiving such e-mails. Please note that due to lead times on certain mailings and other contacts, you may continue to receive contacts for a period following your "opt out" notification. We may send out periodic e-mails informing you of technical service issues, product surveys, new feature announcements and news about our products and services. These e-mails are considered essential to the provision of the service you have requested. You will not be able to choose to unsubscribe to these mailings as they are considered a part of the service you have chosen.

Security of your personal information

We strive to protect the security of your personal data by use of appropriate measures and processes. We have established and maintain reasonable security procedures to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of your personally identifiable information. "Perfect security," however, does not exist on the Internet. Although your privacy is very important to us, due to the existing legal regulatory and security environment, we cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, in the unlikely event we need to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, we can (and you authorize us to do so) disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.

Placeways is committed to protecting the privacy of minors and if we become aware that such information was collected, we will treat that information as sensitive.
