COLLECTION OF INFORMATION AND ITS USE
Evinome never automatically collects any information that specifically identifies you (such as your name, address, or e-mail address) without asking you. Information of this type is only collected when you voluntarily provide it as part of the process of signing up for an email list or subscribing to a product or service. We will ask you whenever we need information (“Subscriber Information”) that allows us to contact you and may identify you.
Evinome may collect personal information when you provide it to us via various sign-up forms on our Websites, when you use certain Evinome Services, and when you purchase Evinome products and services.
In general, Evinome limits the collection of personal information to that which is necessary to conduct our business and provide Services to you. You may no longer be anonymous to us after signing up for or purchasing Evinome products or services.
Evinome collects information related to your transactions with us and with our business partners in the context of delivery of Evinome’s Services.
Like many other content providers on the web, Evinome utilizes Google Analytics to understand trends in utilization of our websites. Thus, when you visit Evinome’s websites, we may receive information related to your computer and browser including your IP address, information about how you got to our Website, and hardware and software attributes. This does not include personally identifiable information like names, email addresses, and addresses. Further information about Google Analytics and their privacy policies is available here:
Evinome uses collected information for the following general purposes: understanding the usage of and improving our websites, products and services, fulfilling your requests for products and services, and for customer service purposes. We do not sell this information to third parties, period.
We are committed to ensuring the privacy of children. Please be aware that this site is neither designed nor intended to attract children under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is a child under the age of 13.
SHARING AND/OR DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
Outside of the context of providing you with products or services that you have requested, Evinome does not sell, rent, or share information about you period.
Though we make significant effort to protect your privacy, in today’s world, an expectation of complete privacy on the internet is probably not realistic. We may need to disclose user 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. Additionally, hacking and other malicious activity is increasingly compromising privacy on the internet. Evinome cannot be liable for malicious activities of this nature.
COMMUNICATIONS FROM EVINOME AND EVINOME SERVICES
Newsletters, Special Offers and Updates
Blogs at our Websites allow commenting. You should be aware that the blogs are public and if you submit personally identifiable information when commenting that it will become public.
On very rare occasions, it may be necessary to send out a strictly service-related announcement. For instance, if any of our Sites or Services are temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send users an email. These communications are never promotional in nature.
We respond and communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and to respond to any issues, concerns or questions. In this context, we may reply either by email or by phone in accordance with your wishes.
As discussed above, we utilize Google Analytics to better understand – in aggregate – how users interact with our site. As discussed in their privacy information (http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html ), Google Analytics, like many sites and services, utilizes first-party cookies to track visitor interactions. Cookies are small strings of characters that are sent to your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are what allows sites to recognize your browser when you visit again. In general, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to notify you when a cookie is being sent. It’s important to remember that cookies are what allow some website features or services to function properly, so there can be a tradeoff between functionality and privacy when considering whether to allow cookies.
CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY
Evinome takes certain efforts to protect the information transmitted via this site, but because use of the internet involves certain inherent risks (including eavesdropping, hacking, viral infection, or other third party actions) which are beyond the control of Evinome, we cannot guarantee the security of any electronically transmitted information.
Evinome utilizes third party vendors and hosting providers to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required for our Sites, services, and products. We do not control these third parties and cannot be held liable for their acts, errors, and omissions.
This Website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Evinome is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage users to be aware and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Website.
Surveys and Contests
From time-to-time, we may request information from users via surveys or contests (either on our Site or via email communication). Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary, and the user, therefore, has a choice whether to disclose this information. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving use and satisfaction with the Site. Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests, they may not use users’ personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
It is possible that we may post customer testimonials on our Site that might contain personally identifiable information (such as the customer’s name). We will never do this without first obtaining the customer’s specific written (or electronically transmitted) consent to post the name along with the testimonial.
