Summus knows that your privacy is important to you, and we want you to know that it is important to us too. We created this Policy to explain the types of information we collect from individuals outside our organization including customers, visitors to our websites and our mobile applications (each, a "Site"), and other users of our services (together "you"), how we will use, disclose and protect this information once it is collected, and how you can opt-in and opt-out of some of our uses and disclosures of your information.
Here are a few general principles to keep in mind as you read through this Policy:
We or our providers of services such as hosting, data analysis, IT services and infrastructure, customer service, e-mail delivery, auditing and other similar services may use Personal Data we collect from and about you for the following purposes:
To perform the above functions, we may match information collected from you through different means or at different times, including both Personal Data and Site usage information, and use such information along with information obtained from other sources (including third parties) such as demographic information and updated contact information. We or our service providers may also use your information to assess the level of interest in, and use of, the Site, our e-mails and our other messaging campaigns both on an individual basis and in the aggregate.
Yes. We may share the information we collect on the Site with others for a variety of reasons. In addition to the kinds of information sharing you might expect, such as sharing with third parties who need your information in order to provide services to us (or on our behalf), we may share your information:
In addition, we may share non-personally identifiable Site usage information (including aggregate data) with others, for their own use, in a form that does not contain Personal Data about you.
You have certain rights regarding your Personal Data, subject to local law. These include the following rights to:
We encourage you to contact us to update or correct your information if it changes or if the Personal Data we hold about you is inaccurate. You may review, update or modify certain of the Personal Data that is stored in your user account on the Site (if you have one) by logging in to the "My Profile" or similar area of the Site. We may ask you to verify your identity and to provide other details before we are able to provide you the ability to change any information, correct any inaccuracies, or delete any information. Please note that we may be unable to provide you with the full benefit of our Site, or our services, if you do not provide us with your Personal Data. If you would like to discuss or exercise such rights, please contact us at email@example.com.
We take the security of your Personal Data seriously. We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. However, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that any information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our system or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others.
If you correspond with us by e-mail, text message, or using Web forms like a "contact us" feature on our Site, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. A third party could view the information you send in transit by such means. We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission.
If you create an account on our Site, you are responsible for maintaining the strict confidentiality of your account password, and you shall be responsible for any activity that occurs using your account credentials, whether or not you authorized such activity. Please notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security.
If we believe that the security of your Personal Data in our care may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we will endeavor to notify you as promptly as possible under the circumstances and in accordance with applicable law.
You may have the right to opt-in to or opt-out of certain of our uses and disclosures of your Personal Data. For example, when you are asked to provide Personal Data on this Site, you may have the opportunity to elect to, or elect not to, receive messages from us by e-mail or text message. If you change your mind after you opt-in, you may tell us that you do not want to receive our promotional messages by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also opt-out of our promotional emails by clicking on the opt-out link within the e-mail you receive. To opt-out of our SMS text messages, please login to your online profile and opt-out of text message notifications. Please understand that it may take us a few days to process any opt-out request and that even if you opt-out of receiving promotional correspondence from us, we may still contact you in connection with your relationship, activities, transactions and communications with us.
If the e-mail address you provide to us is a wireless e-mail address, you agree to receive messages from us at such address unless and until you tell us not to send messages to that address, by following the instructions in the Opt-In and Opt-Out section above. You may change your e-mail preferences at any time, but your wireless carrier's standard rates will apply as long as you are receiving messages at a wireless e-mail address. If you give us a wireless e-mail address, you represent that you are the owner or authorized user of the device on which messages will be received and that you are authorized to approve the applicable charges.
Some Web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" (DNT) signals to the Web sites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not change our tracking practices (which are explained in more detail under "Site Usage Information" above) in response to DNT settings in your web browser.
Our third party partners, such as web analytics companies, collect information about your online activities over time and across our Site and other online properties. These third parties may not change their tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your web browser and we do not obligate these parties to honor DNT settings. We may utilize Google Analytics for our web analytics and you can opt-out of your Site usage data being included in our Google Analytics reports by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
The Site may contain links that lead to other Websites. We are not responsible for these other sites, and so their posted privacy policies (not this Policy) will govern the collection and use of your information on them. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each Website visited after leaving the Site to learn about how your information is treated by others.
We may change this Policy from time to time. When we do, we will let you know by posting the changed Policy on this page with a new "Effective Date." In some cases (for example, if we significantly expand our use or sharing of your Personal Data), we may also tell you about changes by additional means, such as by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address we have on file for you.
