Information We Gather
We may request personally identifying information from you in a variety of contexts. For example, you may provide such data to us if you: (1) complete an online registration form (e.g., various sign-up forms for receiving email newsletters, registering for special offers, registering for an account, entering a contest/sweepstakes or responding to a survey); (2) fill out an order form to request information; (3) purchase any products or services from us; or (4) seek support for a HyTrust product.
In such cases, the personally identifying information we request may include your name, mailing address, zip code, e-mail address and phone number (collectively, “Personal Information”). In addition, we may collect other information such as your date of birth, gender, country of residence, language preference, and other information regarding your interaction with our site. Our site may collect and use your IP address to help identify you, to track activity within our site and to gather broad demographic information.
We are a general audience site that does not knowingly collect data or accept registrations from children under 13 years of age.
How Can Your Personal Information Be Used?
We may use your Personal Information and other non-personally identifying information we collect to update you about our products or services or to contact you about offers of new products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. You always have the option to receive fewer or no communications in the future from us by opting out. You may customize your preferences or opt out by following the instructions included in the specific communication you no longer wish to receive here: http://info.hytrust.com/UnsubscribePage.html .
We may use outside companies to conduct customer research in order to improve our products and services. Under non-disclosure agreements, we may provide your Personal Information and other non-personally identifying information to such firms for the sole purpose of conducting customer research for us.
When you give Personal Information to us, we may ask you to allow us to share that data (together with non-personally identifying information you may provide) with our promotional partners and third-party advertisers. In such instances, our general practice is to ask you to “opt-in” to share such data and information on a specific promotion, registration page or sweepstakes.
However, in some instances, we may ask you to “opt-out” from sharing such data and information with a given promotional partner or third party advertiser in connection with a specific promotion, registration page or sweepstakes.
If you consent to share your Personal Information or other information with our promotional partners and third-party advertisers, you are allowing such parties to use such Personal Information and other information and to contact you in accordance with their own privacy policies. You have the option to change your mind and to stop us from further sharing your Personal Information or other information with our promotional partners and third-party advertisers by “opting out” by contacting user support by sending an email to info[at]hytrust.com. We will not retrieve any Personal Information or other information shared with our promotional partners and third-party advertisers prior to your decision to opt-out. If you wish to limit or discontinue receiving further communications from a promotional partner or third-party advertiser, please contact that company directly in the manner indicated in its own communications with you.
Finally, without any specific approval from you, we may develop general aggregate data (i.e., data that cannot be used to identify specific individuals) about you that is partly based on information about you and your transactions with us. We may share such aggregate statistics with promotional partners and third-party advertisers without your consent. In addition, your Personal Information or other information gathered hereunder may be governed by the terms of an Agreement between you and/or your organization and HyTrust or its affiliates.
For Legal Enforcement Purposes
As an Asset of HyTrust, Inc.
We thank you for entrusting us with your Personal Information and other information, and also should inform you that for business purposes, the information that you provide and that we collect through your usage of the service is also an asset of HyTrust, Inc. and will become part of our normal business records. If HyTrust, Inc. or a substantial part of our business is sold or otherwise transferred to a third party, such as a legal successor in interest, your Personal Information or other information may be transferred to that third party.
Safeguarding Your Personal Information
HyTrust, Inc. cares about the security of your Personal Information. We follow generally accepted industry security standards to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use such Personal Information.
