By using this website, you accept the terms and privacy practices contained in this Policy.
We understand the importance that Internet users place on privacy, and this Policy describes how we use personal information that is collected at our website.
Please read this Policy before using this website or submitting any personal information. California residents, please also see the section for additional rights that apply to you.
We take children's privacy very seriously. This website should only be accessed by persons eighteen (18) years or older. Due to the age restrictions of this website, none of the information obtained by this website falls within the Child Online Privacy Act (COPA). However, if your minor child has provided us with personally identifiable information, you may contact us if you want this information deleted from our records. We will then remove your child's information from the database that stores the information.
With the exception of your account information and other information we collect in connection with your registration or authentication into our Services, this Policy does not apply to our security and privacy practices in connection with your access to and use of the Services. These security and privacy practices, including how we protect, collect, and use electronic data, text, messages, communications or other materials that you submit to us and that are stored within the Services, are detailed in and governed by our End User License Agreement ("EULA"), or such other applicable agreement relating to your access to and use of such Services.
Subscribers to our Services ("Subscribers") are solely responsible for establishing policies for and ensuring compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, as well as any and all privacy policies, agreements or other obligations, relating to the collection of personal information in connection with the use of our Services by individuals with whom our Subscribers interact. We collect information under the direction of our Subscribers, and have no direct relationship with individuals whose personal information we process in connection with our Subscriber's use of our Services. If you are an individual who interacts with one of our Subscribers, please contact our Subscriber directly for assistance with any requests or questions relating to your personal information.
We may transfer personal information to companies that help us provide our Services. Transfers to third parties for these purposes are governed by the End User License Agreements with our Subscribers.
Individuals subject to European data protection laws may have data subject rights in relation to the personal data we hold on them (described in detail below). This may, in and of itself, be subject to limitations and/or restrictions.
If you are located in the EEA, please contact us to exercise your rights.
THE TYPE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU
We combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to offer special discounts and to improve marketing, analytics, and website functionality.
Technologies such as: cookies, beacons, tags and scripts are used by us and our marketing, advertising and support partners. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the website, tracking users' movements around the website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.
Any information you provide on our website order forms is collected by our payment processing service providers on their servers. That information is then shared with us. This information includes ordering information such as shipping and billing names and addresses, phone numbers, email address, and credit card information (See "Orders and Use of Personal Information" below). We use this information primarily to fulfill customer orders and requests. We do not share this information with any third parties. However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below.
Emails or newsletters that we send electronically may use techniques such as web beacons or pixel tags to gather email metrics and information to improve the reader's experience, such as the number of emails that are opened, whether they were forwarded or printed, the type of device from which they were opened, and the location (e.g. city and state) associated with the applicable IP address.
ORDERS AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personal information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card information and expiration date). We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.
By submitting your email address on this website, you agree to receive email from us. You can cancel your participation in any of these email lists at any time by clicking the opt-out link or other unsubscribe option that is included in the respective email. We only send emails to people who have authorized us to contact them, either directly, or through a third party. We do not send unsolicited commercial emails, because we hate spam as much as you do.
By submitting your email address, you also agree to allow us to use your email address for custom audience targeting on sites like Facebook, where we display custom advertising to specific people who have opted-in to receive communications from us.
In addition, you agree that by submitting your telephone contact information on this website and/or registering to receive the products and/or services offered herein, such act constitutes a purchase, an inquiry, and/or an application for the purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule (ATSR), 16 CFR Part 310 et seq. and any applicable state and local "do not call" regulations. We retain the right to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the ATSR and the applicable state regulations.
We ask for and may collect personal information such as your name, address, phone number and email address when you register for or attend a sponsored event or other events at which we participate.

We may, in our sole discretion, provide information about you as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or other legal process for purposes of fraud investigations, alleged intellectual property infringement, or any other suspected illegal activity or matters that may expose us to legal liability.
Although we do not disclose individually identifiable information, we may disclose aggregate data about our website's visitors to advertisers or other third parties for marketing and promotional purposes.
We share information, including personal information, with our third-party service providers that we use to provide hosting for and maintenance of our website, application development, backup, storage, payment processing, analytics and other services for us.

You will be notified via email and/or prominent notice on our website for 30 days of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on order forms that are hosted by our PCI compliant third-party service providers, the transmission of that information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use Google Analytics Advertiser Features to optimize our business. Advertiser features include:
- Remarketing with Google Analytics
- Google Display Network Impression Reporting
- DoubleClick Platform Integrations
- Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting
By enabling these Google Analytics Display features, we are required to notify our website visitors by disclosing the use of these features and that we and third-party vendors use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) or other first-party identifiers, and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to gather data about your activities on our website. Among other uses, this allows us to contact you if you begin to fill out our check-out form but abandon it before completion, with an email reminding you to complete your order. The "Remarketing" feature allows us to reach people who previously visited our website, and match the right audience with the right advertising message.
As advertisers on Facebook and through our Facebook page, we (not Facebook) may collect content or information from a Facebook user and such information may be used in the same manner specified in this Policy. You consent to our collection of such information. We abide by Facebook's Data Use Restrictions.
- Any ad data collected, received or derived from our Facebook ads ("Facebook advertising data") is only shared with someone acting on our behalf, such as our service provider. We are responsible for ensuring that our service providers protect any Facebook advertising data or any other information obtained from us, limit our use of all of that information, and keep it confidential and secure.
- We do not use Facebook advertising data for any purpose (including retargeting, commingling data across multiple advertisers' campaigns, or allowing piggybacking or redirecting with tags), except on an aggregate and anonymous basis (unless authorized by Facebook) and only to assess the performance and effectiveness of our Facebook advertising campaigns.
- We do not use Facebook advertising data, including the targeting criteria for a Facebook ad, to build, append to, edit, influence, or augment user profiles, including profiles associated with any mobile device identifier or other unique identifier that identifies any particular user, browser, computer or device.
- We do not transfer any Facebook advertising data (including anonymous, aggregate, or derived data) to any ad network, ad exchange, data broker or other advertising or monetization related service.
Do Not Track Disclosure
Some browsers or other tools include "e;Do Not Track"e; (DNT) features which, when turned on, send a signal to websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked across websites over time. However, since no technology standard for DNT signals has been developed or adopted to date, Trade Navigator may not properly respond to DNT signals.
Collection of Personal Financial Information by a Payment Service
In some cases, we may use an unaffiliated payment service to allow you to purchase a product or make payments ("e;Payment Service"e;). If you wish to purchase a product or make a payment in such a case, you will be directed to a Payment Service webpage. Any information that you provide to a Payment Service will be subject to the applicable Payment Service's privacy notice, rather than this Privacy Notice. We have no control over, and are not responsible for, any Payment Service's use of information collected through any Payment Service.
