This statement discloses our privacy practices for the www.sqeez.org website ("Sqeez" "We") and provides other information regarding our data security.
At Sqeez we respect your privacy and as a visitor to our website, you may prefer to control your own personal information and preferences. For this reason, we may ask you to register or to provide personal information and preferences when you visit certain areas of our website.
We will guard the personal information you share with us to ensure that all content, services, and advertising that we provide are always tailored to your current, designated preferences.
Any personal information that you post to online forums is accessible by other forum participants. If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you may still visit and use some Sqeez features; however, you may not have access to areas that require personal identification.
When you provide Sqeez with your personal information (including, but not limited to, your name or alias, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone number, and all other information), Sqeez and our affiliates may use the provided information to alert you to new services, upgrades, special offers, updated information, upcoming promotions, and other offers. Beyond its representatives and affiliates, Sqeez will not offer or allow the selling of any user-provided information to third parties.
Protection of Your Personal Information
Sqeez will always protect the personal information that you share with us to the best of our abilities. Sqeez stores information internally in a controlled, secure environment.
We may occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including, but not limited to, programming, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they will be prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
If Sqeez requests general and specific demographic information, this information is limited to reporting purposes only; members remain anonymous. Phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and postal addresses and other membership information will not be shared for demographic reports with outside entities. Sqeez may occasionally present a special contest or promotion that is sponsored by another company. To qualify for entry, we may ask you to provide personal information. If we plan to share that information with the sponsor(s), we will provide an up-front statement to that effect.
The use of the Sqeez Sync and other features on the Sqeez website may require members to answer specific questions about their daily lives. Sqeez may collect and use your personal information to operate and improve and deliver the services or carry out the transactions you have requested. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the sites or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our services and technologies; and displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences.
Sqeez is intended for general audiences and do not knowingly collect any personal information from children. When Sqeez does collect age information, and users identify themselves as under the age of 14, the site will not allow these users to become registered members. We will not knowingly ask children under the age of 14 to provide any personal information.
Though we will make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our website.
Sqeez offers free membership to all www.sqeez.org visitors. In order to establish membership, visitors are requested to provide both personal information and preferences. Access to your membership information always requires both your user-established Member ID and Password. It is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you may be sharing a computer with anyone you should always choose to log out before leaving to protect access to your information from subsequent users.
Sqeez may also utilize visitor log files (cookies) and hosted tracking with our website. A "cookie" is a small line of text that is stored with your web browser for record-keeping purposes and helps Sqeez provide better service to you. No information, other than that found in a membership cookie, will be accessed by any Sqeez system. Your browser has options to accept, reject, or provide you with notice when a cookie is sent. Once a user enters our site, a cookie follows them through their click stream path. Examples of information being collected by these cookies and the hosted tracking include the number of times a user came to our site(s), and the paths they took to get there. Use of this information helps us better understand what users are seeking and learning at our website(s) and helps us identify potential navigation issues.
Sqeez may allow other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to display advertisements on Sqeez. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on your computer in order to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. Sqeez does not have access to the cookies that may be placed by the third-party ad servers or ad networks.
Security is one of our highest priorities, and Sqeez understands that security is important to our members as well. Sqeez may periodically publish security bulletins and technical briefs that provide information to our members about security issues. For more details, visit www.sqeez.org/security
How to update your personal information and preferences: You can help Sqeez maintain the accuracy of your personal information by notifying us when you change your name, address, title, phone number, e-mail address, or your content preferences. If at any time you wish to update your information or preferences, or you prefer to stop receiving communication from Sqeez, feel free to contact us at any time.
