At eStatus, protecting our users' privacy and security is a top priority. For this reason, we have adopted the following policy to advise you of your choices regarding the use of your personal information online. This policy describes what types of information we gather, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it to third parties. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our information practices on http://www.estatus.net/ (“our website”). By visiting our website, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.
What Personal Information About Customers Does eStatus Gather?
The information we learn from you helps us personalize and continually improve your experience on our website. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, improving our website, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our website. Examples of the information we collect and analyze include the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our website, including date and time; and cookie number.
Email and Other Communications: eStatus does not ask for or track the receipt of any email sent from us.
More About Cookies
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser. We use this feature solely to expedite your log in experience.
The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of our website's most useful features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
Does eStatus Share The Information It Receives?
Information about our customers is essential in order to provide you with our services. We maintain strict confidentiality regarding your information and neither sell it to, nor share this information with others. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries eStatus controls that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.
- Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include website development and customer service and support. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other
- Principals: None of the principals of eStatus have access to your business information except for customer support for the purpose of serving you and your clients.
- Aggregate Data: We gather certain generic information with respect to customers' use of our web site, such as the number of unique visitors, the frequency with which they visit, and the areas on the web site that they favor. These statistics are very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We only use this type of data in aggregate-that is, we look at the data on a collective basis, in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. This data helps us determine the extent to which our customers use certain parts of our web site, which, in turn, enables us to make it as useful to you as possible.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. eStatus should have its security certificate soon. In addition to our online security efforts, we take steps to protect your personal data offline, as well. All of your information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Employees are granted access on a need-to-know basis (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative). Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the dedicated servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure, locked environment.
If you choose to visit our website, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice. If you have any concern about privacy at our website, please send us a thorough description to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to resolve it.
