Online Privacy is a constantly evolving landscape and ExtBytes Software plans to take all reasonable efforts to maintain up to date and effective online privacy standards and practices. We have linked every page of our web site to this page for your convenience and you may also contact us at email@example.com with any questions or concerns that you may have.
We at ExtBytes Software and our affiliated companies worldwide (“ExtBytes”) are committed to respecting your online privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) you share with us.
ExtBytes has established this Privacy Statement so that you can understand the care with which we intend to treat your Personal Information.
Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address and an email address or other contact information, whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit ExtBytes' Web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself. But sometimes we do need information to provide services that you request, and this privacy statement explains data collection and use in those situations.
If you choose to provide us with your Personal Information on the Web, we may transfer that Information within ExtBytes or to ExtBytes' third-party service providers, across borders, and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.
ExtBytes strives to comply with all applicable laws around the globe that are designed to protect your privacy. Although legal requirements may vary from country to country, ExtBytes intends to adhere to the principles set forth in this Privacy Statement even if, in connection with the above, we transfer your Personal Information from your country to countries that may not require an “adequate” level of protection for your Personal Information. In other words, our goal is to provide protection for your Personal Information no matter where that Personal Information is collected, transferred, or retained.
This privacy statement only applies to ExtBytes.com; it does not apply to other online or offline ExtBytes sites, products or services. Please read the complete ExtBytes.com privacy statement.
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (Personal Information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are ordering e-mail newsletters, joining a limited-access premium site, signing up for a training, or when purchasing and/or registering ExtBytes products. Personal information collected by ExtBytes.com often is limited to e-mail address, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
For example: If you choose a service or transaction that requires payment, such as purchasing a product or service, we will request personal information necessary for billing and/or shipping, such as: name, address, telephone number, and credit card number.
We also collect information about which pages our customers visit within ExtBytes.com. This site visitation data is identified only by a unique ID number, and it is never linked with personal information unless a user consents as described below.
We use your personal information for the following purposes:
To ensure our site is relevant to your needs.
To deliver services, such as newsletters, training or software, that you request or purchase.
To help us create and publish content most relevant to you.
To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information and other new services from ExtBytes, if you so request.
To allow you access to limited-entry areas of our site as appropriate.
We will merge site-visitation data with anonymous demographic information for research purposes, and we may use this information in aggregate to provide more relevant content. In some limited-entry sections of ExtBytes.com, with your approval, we will combine site-visitation data with your personal information in order to provide you with personalized content. If you decline permission, we will not provide you the personalized service and won't merge your personal information with site-visitation data.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
ExtBytes may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ExtBytes or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ExtBytes, or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of ExtBytes employees, users of ExtBytes products or services, or members of the public.
When you register, or otherwise give us personal information, ExtBytes.com will not share that information with third parties without your permission, other than for the limited exceptions already listed. It will only be used for the purposes stated above.
Registering also allows you to tell us how or whether you want ExtBytes.com to communicate with you. We ask you to decide what information you want to receive and how you want to receive it. Or you can tell us not to contact you. If you buy software through ExtBytes.com, and do not want to receive such information, check the box on the Checkout page (or on other pages where personal information is collected) which says: No, I don't want to receive any newsletters or offers from ExtBytes.com.
