Types of Information
“Personal Information” is information about you that is personally identifiable to you, like your name, address, email address, or phone number, as well as other non-public information that is associated with the foregoing.
“Anonymous Information” means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information; Anonymous Information does not permit the identification of individual persons.
YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROCESSED BY SWAKKER IN THE COUNTRY WHERE IT WAS COLLECTED AS WELL AS OTHER COUNTRIES (INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA) WHERE LAWS REGARDING PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE LESS STRINGENT THAN THE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY.
Personal Information We Collect
We collect the following Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily through our Site:
- We collect your email address when you submit it to us through the Site.
- When you contact us by sending us an email, we will collect what is contained in (or attached to) the email, including your email address.
Use of Information
Information (including Personal Information) you submit to us, or to any third party that may support us in collecting information, is used by us to for the purposes of sending periodic mailings to you about Swakker’™s Site, products and/or services or to respond to inquiries or requests you may make, and may be used by us in the future to provide products or services to you or tailor our Site, products or services.
By sending us an email, you hereby authorize Swakker to use and disclose this information, including for the purposes of responding to your email. We will treat any feedback or suggestions you provide to Swakker as non-confidential and non-proprietary. Thus, in the absence of a written agreement with Swakker to the contrary, you agree that you will not submit to Swakker any information or ideas that you consider to be confidential or proprietary.
Swakker may analyze any collected information for its own internal purposes. In addition, Swakker may remove personally identifying information from collected information to render it anonymous. Swakker may use Anonymous Information for any purpose and disclose Anonymous Information at our discretion.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Swakker does not rent, sell, or share Personal Information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies, except when we have your permission or as described below:
We may provide information to our third-party service providers in connection with providing you our Site, products, services, and/or information regarding our Site, products and/or services. These third-party service providers are required not to use your information other than in connection with providing you such Site, products, services, and/or information, as requested by Swakker.
We will disclose information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We may disclose information, if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected illegal activities or fraud, situations involving the physical safety of any person, or as otherwise required by applicable law.
Personal Information Collected Via Technology
An “Internet protocol address” or “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a web site sends to your computer’™s hard drive while you are viewing a web site. Swakker may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on the Site. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. If you choose to disable Cookies, some areas of the Site may not work properly.
Choices Regarding Personal Information
We may periodically send you e-mails that promote or otherwise contain information relating to the use of our Site, products and/or services. When you receive emails from us, you may indicate a preference to stop (opt-out of) receiving further emails from us by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the email(s) you received. Or you may do so by sending an email to email@example.com.
Confidentiality and Security
We limit access to Personal Information about you to employees and third parties who we reasonably believe need access to that information to provide our Site, products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect Personal Information about you. However, no company, including Swakker, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information.
