This policy discloses the privacy practices for the web site located at http://www.advus.com; http://www.advus.com.br, http://www.advuscorp.com, http://www.performance-watch.com and http://www.performance-watch.com.br. When you visit our web site, you can expect to be notified of:
- What personally identifiable information of yours is collected;
- What organization is collecting the information;
- How the information is used;
- With whom the information may be shared;
- What choices are available to you regarding collection, use and distribution of the information;
- What kind of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under the company’s control; and
- How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
In general, individuals may visit our web site and obtain information regarding our products while remaining anonymous and without revealing any personal information. However, if you wish to receive any product information or schedule a product demonstration, we request that you provide us information which personally identifies you, such as your name, company name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, facsimile number, and the type of business that you have (hereinafter referred to collectively as “Personal Information"). No Personal Information is collected without visitors to this web site explicitly inputting such information. We may use your Personal Information internally to help improve the content of our web site or to alert you to new products or special offers from us. In addition, your Personal Information will be used to respond to requests and to contact you when needed. We will not use your Personal Information for any other purpose. We will not disclose, transfer, sell, rent or lease your Personal Information to any third party without your express consent.
However, we will share Personal Information when legally required to do so, such as in response to court orders or subpoenas.
In addition to Personal Information, we may automatically collect non-personal, aggregated information about visitors use of our web site (“Usage Information"). Usage Information is not personally identifiable information and is used solely to give us insight into the number, duration and frequency of visitors to our web site and the web page or site visitors were viewing immediately prior to coming to our site. The collection of Usage Information allows us to prepare for traffic load demands and more efficiently operate our web site.
To enable many of the features available within our web site, we may assign to your Internet browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer® or Mozilla Firefox©) a unique identification number to be stored in a file on your computer. This is commonly referred to as a “cookie." Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user. This unique identification number automatically identifies your browser — but not you — to our computers whenever you interact with one of our Internet domains. Only when you agree to provide information to us directly, such as filling out our contact information request page, will we be able to know anything about you other than the random number that our server computers assign to your browser.
There is much confusion about cookies, how they are used, and what they can do. Cookies are very small text files written by an Internet server to a visitor’s browser when information is exchanged. Cookies are an essential part of how the Internet works today and allow server computers to recognize your computer’s browser when you return. For example, if you have ever accessed a web site that automatically provides personalized content to you without you having to “log in," this is almost certainly being accomplished with a cookie. Since cookies are only text files, they cannot “run" on your computer and have no ability to search your computer for other information or transmit such information to anyone.
Cookies are implemented as part of the technology implemented by your web browser. But don’t just take our word for it—read what the companies who wrote the browsers have to say!
We respect and protect your Personal Information.
Advus takes appropriate steps to respect and protect the Personal Information that you share with us. Whenever you give us Personal Information, we take commercially reasonable steps to establish a secure connection with your web browser. We currently use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to help prevent disclosure, loss, misuse or alteration of any Personal Information.
