OpenConnect has created this privacy statement ("Statement") in order to demonstrate our commitment to customer privacy. Privacy on the OpenConnect web site (the "Site") is of great importance to us. Because we gather important information from our visitors and customers, we have established this Statement as a means to communicate our information gathering and dissemination practices. We reserve the right to change this Statement and will provide notification of the change at least thirty (30) business days prior to the change taking effect. To be effective, the change will include directions on how users may respond to the change.
We require customers who register on our Site to give us contact information, such as their name, company name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. At the time you express interest in attaining additional information, or when you register, we may also ask for additional personal information, such as title, department name, fax number, or additional company information, such as annual revenues, number of employees, or industry. Customers can opt out of providing this additional information by not entering it when asked.
OpenConnect uses the information that we collect to contact customers to further discuss customer interest in our company, the Services that we provide, and to send information regarding our company or partners, such as promotions and events. Customer email addresses and any personal customer information will not be distributed or shared with any third parties. Customers can opt out of being contacted by us, or receiving such information from us, at any time by sending an email to email@example.com. We may also email information regarding updates to our Products or company. Again, email will not be distributed or shared and customers can opt out of receiving any communication by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org at the time it is distributed.
When you interact with any OpenConnect website such as WorkiQ, we strive to make that experience easy and meaningful. When you come to our Web site, our Web server sends a cookie to your computer. Cookies are files that Web browsers place on a computer's hard drive and are used to tell us whether customers and visitors have visited the Site previously.
Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to OpenConnect, either by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or registering for a 30-day Test Drive, you remain anonymous to OpenConnect. Cookies come in two flavors: session and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you've closed your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a unique identifier for your browser.
OpenConnect uses session cookies containing encrypted or encoded information including your username and session ID. This information allows OpenConnect to process your online transactions and requests. Session cookies help us make sure you are who you say you are after you've logged in and are required in order to use the OpenConnect application. OpenConnect uses persistent cookies, that only OpenConnect can read and use, to identify the fact that you are a OpenConnect customer or prior OpenConnect Website visitor (whatever the case may be). We are especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies. For example, we do not store account numbers or passwords in persistent cookies. Users who disable their Web browsers' ability to accept cookies will be able to browse our Website but will not be able to successfully use our service.
The Site contains links to other web sites. OpenConnect is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other web sites. Customers and visitors will need to check the policy statement of these others web sites to understand their policies. Customers and visitors who access a linked site may be disclosing their private information. It is the responsibility of the user to keep such information private and confidential.
Our Site has security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the Data under our control. When our site is accessed by browsers such as Internet Explorer, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology protects information using both server authentication and data encryption to help ensure that Data is safe, secure, and available only to you. OpenConnect also implements an advanced security method based on dynamic data and encoded session identifications, and hosts the Site in a secure server environment that uses a firewall and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. Finally, OpenConnect provides unique user names and passwords that must be entered each time a customer logs on. These safeguards help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of Data.
OpenConnect offers its visitors and customers a means to choose how we may use information provided. If, at any time after registering for information, you change your mind about receiving information from us, send us a request specifying your new choice. Simply send your request to email@example.com.
Questions regarding this Statement or the practices of this Site should be directed to OpenConnect's Security Administrator by e-mailing such questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
