Online Privacy and Security
Last Modified: May 13, 2019
The Policy describes the treatment of information that is provided by you or collected through any of our online interfaces to which a copy of the Policy is posted, including all SecurityStudio.com domains (the "Website"), Applications we have placed on third party sites such as Facebook®, Twitter® and other social media services, and SecurityStudio’s mobile applications (the "Applications," and together with the "Website," the "Services"). It also explains how we collect, use and share information based on users’ interactions with online advertisements, both on the Services and on online interfaces owned by third parties. Note that the Policy does not govern our privacy practices offline or with respect to information that is not provided or collected through the Services.
We collect two basic types of information through the Services – personal information and anonymous information. We also collect location information in connection with our mobile applications.
"Personal information" refers to information that identifies (whether directly or indirectly) a particular individual, such as information you provide on our forms, surveys, applications or similar online fields. Examples may include your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, Social Security number, date of birth or account information.
"Anonymous information" means information that does not directly or indirectly identify, and cannot reasonably be used to identify, a particular individual. Examples may include information about your Internet browser, information collected through tracking technologies, demographic information that you provide to us (e.g., your household income) and aggregated or de-identified data.
"Location information" means information that may be collected by certain mobile applications that identifies your physical location.
We collect personal information from you or about you when you provide this information to us directly. For example, we may obtain personal information when you request information, products or services from us, register on the Website or an Application, respond to surveys, contact customer support or otherwise interact with us. We may also receive information about you from other online and offline sources, such as public databases, social media platforms and other third parties.
In addition, we may collect information about your activity on the Services automatically using tracking technologies, such as cookies, and pixel tags.
If you submit any personal information relating to other people to us or to our service providers in connection with the Services, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use the information in accordance with this Policy.
We may use information that we collect in order to, among other things:
We will not share your information outside the SecurityStudio family of service providers, except under limited circumstances.
We and certain trusted service providers operating on our behalf collect information about your activity on the Services using tracking technologies, including:
You can choose to have your device refuse to accept any cookies, and the majority of devices and browsers offer additional privacy settings for cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Each device and each browser is a little different, so look at your device Settings or your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you will not have access to many features that make your user experience more efficient and some of the Services will not function properly. Please note that you will need to manage your cookie settings for each device and browser that you use.
Information collected through tracking technologies is used for many purposes including, for example, to:
Other technologies. We may use other technologies, such as the capture of screenshots while you are using the Services, to understand how you navigate and use the Services. This information helps us to better understand how the Services are used and to improve them.
We may associate this tracking data with any personal information you provide, in which case we will treat it as personal information.
Do Not Track. There is no industry standard for how Do Not Track consumer browser settings should work on commercial websites. Due to the lack of such standards our websites do not respond to Do Not Track consumer browser settings.
Occasionally, you may encounter banner advertisements for our products and services on third-party websites and mobile applications. We use third-party advertising service providers to distribute our advertisements on websites and mobile applications where we have paid to advertise. These advertisements may use tracking technologies to capture information such as IP address, browser type and usage information in order to track the effectiveness of our advertising efforts. Such tracking technologies do not capture personal information about you, and our advertising service providers are prohibited from using any information collected except to track advertising effectiveness.
In addition, we use advertising service providers such as Google, Yahoo and MSN to place advertisements for our services on websites not affiliated with us, and to help us determine which of our advertisements are most likely to be of interest to you using non-personal behavioral information. Advertisements placed by these service providers may use tracking technologies that allow monitoring of your responsiveness to such advertisements. We restrict access and collection of information by advertising service providers for purposes other than assisting us with our advertising efforts.
Our service providers may use data collected on our website to customize advertisements to you on other sites as you browse the web. Opting-out from a specific advertising provider means that the ads you do receive will not be based on your preferences or behavior. You may still see targeted pages based on your habits as you navigate SecurityStudio.com.
In order for behavioral advertising opt-outs to work on your device, your browser must be set to accept cookies. If you delete cookies, buy a new device, access the Services from a different device, log-in under a different screen name or change web browsers, you will need to opt-out again. If your browser has scripting disabled, you do not need to opt-out, as online behavioral advertising technology does not work when scripting is disabled. Please check your browser's security settings to validate whether scripting is active or disabled.
Browser or Device Information: Certain information is collected by most browsers or automatically through your device, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, Internet browser type and version, and the name and version of the Services (such as the Application) you are using. We use this information to ensure that the Services function properly.
Application Information: When you download and use an Application, we and our service providers may track and collect usage data, such as the date and time the Application on your device accesses our servers and what information and files have been downloaded to the Application based on your device number.
IP Address: Your IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. An IP address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user accesses the Services, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) visited. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other services. We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels, helping diagnose server problems and administering the Services.
In addition, SecurityStudio is not responsible for the information collection, use and disclosure practices (including the data security practices) of other organizations, such as Facebook, Apple, Google, Microsoft, BlackBerry or any other app developer or provider, social media platform provider, operating system provider, wireless service provider or device manufacturer.
Your privacy is very important to SecurityStudio and we are committed to protecting your personal information from unauthorized access or use. We will use reasonable organizational, physical, technical and administrative measures to protect personal information within our organization. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to help us protect your personal information, it is important that you always keep your account information safe. Never share your personal ID or password with anyone, under any circumstances.
Note that SecurityStudio will never initiate, (unless otherwise stated for a specific product or service application), a request via email for your sensitive information (e.g., Social Security number, personal ID or password). If you receive an email asking for your sensitive information, you should be suspicious of the request and promptly notify us at email@example.com to report the suspicious activity.
Please be aware, however, that in certain telephone and in-person transactions we may ask for information to verify your identity. We will never request that you disclose your password under any circumstances, including such telephone or in-person transactions.
We do not use the Services to knowingly solicit personal information from or market to children under the age of thirteen (13) without parental consent. We request that such individuals do not provide personal information through the Services. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should promptly notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will delete such information from our files. For additional information regarding the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), please visit the Federal Trade Commission website.
We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy, unless a longer retention period is required by law.
The Services are controlled and operated by us from the United States, and are not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any country or territory other than that of the United States. We may store and process your personal information in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage service providers, and, by using the Services, you consent to the transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence, including the United States, which may have different data protection rules than those of your country.
From time to time, we may make changes to this Policy in order to accommodate new technologies, industry practices, regulatory requirements or for other purposes. We encourage you to review the Policy periodically to ensure that you understand how we collect, use and share information through the Services. If we do make changes to the Policy, we will also update the "Effective Date" posted at the top of the Policy.
Any changes to the Policy will become effective when the revised Policy is posted on the Website, relevant Application or other SecurityStudio online interface, as applicable. By continuing to use the Services following such changes, you are agreeing to accept the terms of the revised Policy.
If you have any questions or comments about this Policy or our privacy practices generally, we encourage you to contact our customer service department by emailing email@example.com.
In the event you notice suspicious activity on your account or believe your personal ID or password has been compromised, please contact us immediately.
