Profectus Incorporated (referred to in this Privacy Statement
as "we" or "PROFECTUS") recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of all information provided by
users of our web sites, recipients of our e-mail newsletters and all other customers of our products and
services. We created this policy with a fundamental respect for our customers' right to privacy and to guide
our relationships with our customers. This Privacy Statement discloses the privacy practices for all
products and services owned by PROFECTUS.
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
PROFECTUS collects information from our website users,
subscribers and other customers. In this section of our Privacy Statement, we describe the type of
information we collect and how we use it to provide better services to our customers.
Registration and Ordering
When using our websites, requesting information about our
services, and signing up for certain selected services (such as free subscriptions), users must first
register. During registration, users are required to give their contact information (such as name, e-mail
address, mailing address, and phone number). For internal purposes, we use this information to communicate
with users and provide requested services, and, for our website visitors, to provide a more personalized
experience on our sites. We also may collect demographic information (such as job title and company
information). We use aggregate demographic information about our audience to improve our service, for
marketing purposes and/or industry reporting purposes.
If users wish to subscribe to our e-mail newsletters, we ask
for contact information (such as name, e-mail address, and demographic information). We use this information
in the same manner as we use contact information in the registration and ordering process described above.
Recipients of our newsletters can unsubscribe using the instructions listed at the end of the e-mail
Surveys and Contests
From time to time we invite web site users and other customers
to provide information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely
voluntary and the website user or other customer therefore has a choice whether to disclose requested
contact information (such as name and mailing address) and demographic information (such as zip code or job
title). In addition to the other uses set forth in this policy, contact information collected in connection
with surveys and contests is used to notify the winners and award prizes and to monitor or improve the use
of, and satisfaction with the website or other PROFECTUS product or service. Such information is NOT shared
with third party sponsors of such surveys or contests.
At some of our sites, we offer interactive and community
features such as discussion boards, webcasts and user profiles. Note that all personal information sent or
posted via such features becomes public information for which we are not responsible.
Communications with Us
We have features where our customers can submit information to
us (such as our feedback forms). Where such submissions include requests for service or information, we may
forward them to our agents, as needed, to best respond to the specific request. In addition, we may retain
e-mails and other information sent to us for our internal administrative purposes, and to help us to serve
Communications from Us: Service Updates, Special Offers
In order to best serve our customers, we may send updates that
contain important information about our products and services. For example, we send new members a welcoming
message, and verify password and username for our password-protected web sites. We may also communicate with
a customer to provide requested services and for account-related issues via e-mail, phone, or regular mail.
In addition to such service and product-essential messages, we offer our customers the option to receive
information about our company, related products, services, and special deals. Users, however, can choose not
to receive these communications from us, as set forth in the "Permission" section below.
Automatic Data Collection
Our web sites, newsletters and, from time to time, certain
other products and services have features that automatically collect information from customers, to deliver
content specific to customers' interests and to honor their preferences. This information assists us in
creating products and services that will serve the needs of our customers.
We use an email delivery and marketing company to send emails
(including newsletters) for which you have registered (or otherwise agreed to receive). Web beacons and
cookies may be used in such email messages to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how
customers use our web sites and other products and services.
For our internal purposes, we gather date, time, browser type,
navigation history and IP address of all visitors to our web sites. This information does not contain
anything that can identify users personally. We use this information for our internal security audit log,
trend analysis and system administration, and to gather broad demographic information about our user base
for aggregate use.
We may combine demographic information supplied by a customer
at registration with web site usage data to provide general profiles, in aggregate non-personally
identifiable form, about our customers and their preferences in the content of the site and advertising. We
may share this composite information with our advertisers and business affiliates to help them better
understand our services.
WITH WHOM YOUR INFORMATION IS SHARED
Other than as set forth above, we do not share personally
identifiable information with other companies, apart from those acting as our agents in providing our
product(s)/service(s), and which agree to use it only for that purpose and to keep the information secure
and confidential. We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in
response to a court order or a subpoena or other legal obligation, in response to a law enforcement agency's
request, or in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to
identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with
(either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property. Users should also be aware that courts of
equity, such as U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, might have the authority under certain circumstances to permit
personal information to be shared or transferred to third parties without permission.
CORRECTION/UPDATING PERSONAL INFORMATION
If your personally identifiable information changes (such as
zip code), or if you no longer desire our product(s)/service(s), we provide a way to correct or update your
personal data: you may either contact PROFECTUS or complete the "Feedback" page as described in the
"Permission" section below.
We use reasonable precautions to protect our customers'
personal information and to store it securely. Access to all of our customers' information is restricted.
Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a consultant, or a customer
service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers on
which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Our web sites contain links to other sites. PROFECTUS is not
responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware
when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each web site to which we may link that may
collect personally identifiable information.
NOTIFICATION and CHANGES
If we change our Privacy Statement, we will post those changes
on this page so our users are aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under which
circumstances, if any, we disclose it. Users should check this policy frequently to keep abreast of any
