Your privacy is very important to us. At SBAssociates we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Like most website operators, SBAssociates collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of this website.
SBAssociates also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. SBAssociates only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to SBAssociates’ website choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask client section to provide a username and email address. We collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SBAssociates. SBAssociates does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
SBAssociates may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, SBAssociates may monitor the most popular pages on the site. SBAssociates may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SBAssociates does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
SBAssociates discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on SBAssociates’ behalf or to provide services available at our website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using SBssociates’ website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SBAssociates will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, SBAssociates discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SBAssociates believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SBAssociates, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the SBAssociates website and have supplied your email address, SBAssociates may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with SBAssociates and our products. We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. SBAssociates takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
