Notification of changes to this Policy
We are continually improving and adding new functionality and features to this Web Site and improving and adding to its existing products, services and programs. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law and the changing nature of technology, our data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, we will post the changes on this Web Site to notify you of the changes. We encourage you to check this page frequently.
Collection of Personal Data including e-mail addresses
We collect the information you give us when you use our Web Site. You may use this Web Site to register to receive additional information on products and services or support from us. When you register, we ask you for contact information like your name and e-mail address.
We do collect email addresses from prospect lists of other companies. We also use rented e-mail lists but only if the list is specifically an opt-in list, that is, lists of people who have explicitly agreed to receive email messages from third parties.
We may also collect e-mail addresses via marketing events such as trade shows and exhibitions. In such cases, we assume that people providing their e-mail addresses are opting in to receive e-mail messages from third parties. Therefore, we do not include an e-mail opt-out mechanism when collecting event leads.
Use of Personal Data
We process your Personal Data only for specific and limited purposes. We ask only for data that is adequate, relevant and not excessive for those purposes. When we ask you for Personal Data, we tell you the purposes for which we will process that data. Some of these purposes include the following:
· We may contact you occasionally to inform you of new products or services we will be providing, or special offers, events or articles we think will be of interest to you.
· We may send you regular updates by e-mail or by post on Humanworks Technologies organized or related events.
· We may send you requested product information and promotional material.
· We may use your Personal Data for marketing purposes and market research.
· We may use your Personal Data internally to help us improve our products and services and to help resolve any problems.
If you do not wish to receive information from us and want to be removed from our standard mailing list, please contact us by e-mail.
Anonymous data collected through this Web Site
In addition to the information we collect as described above, we use technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our Web Site. For example, we use technology to track which pages of our Web Site our visitors view. We also use technology to determine which Web browsers our visitors use. This technology does not identify you personally; it simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our Web Site.
Our Web Site contains hyperlinks to other pages on our Web Site. We use technology to track how often these links are used and which pages on our Web Site our visitors choose to view. Again this technology does not identify you personally - it simply enables us to compile statistics about the use of these hyperlinks.
We use this anonymous data to improve the content and functionality of this Web Site and our e-mail updates, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.
