1. Collection of Anonymous, Passive Information
We reserve the right to monitor your use of this Site. As you navigate through this Site, certain anonymous information may be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags or web beacons, and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, clickstream). For example, as explained in more detail below, your Internet browser automatically transmits to this Site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the website you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. This Site may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies and Internet tags or web beacons. You may set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or to refuse cookies altogether, but certain features of this Site might not work without cookies. The following is a listing and a brief explanation of passive information collection methodologies which we may use from time to time to better understand how this Site is being used.

• A “cookie” is a bit of information that this Site sends to your Web browser which helps us remember information about you and your preferences.

• “Session” cookies are temporary bits of information that are used to improve navigation, block visitors from providing information where inappropriate (the Site “remembers” previous entries of age or country of origin that were outside the specified parameters and blocks subsequent changes), and collect aggregate statistical information on the Site. They are erased once you exit your Web browser or otherwise turn off your computer.

• “Persistent” cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided, helping to determine what areas of the Site you may find most valuable, and customizing the Site based on your preferences on an ongoing basis. Persistent cookies placed by this Site in your computer do not hold Personal Information.

• You can set your browser to accept all cookies, to reject all cookies, or to notify you whenever a cookie is offered so that you can decide each time whether to accept it. To learn more about cookies and how to specify your preferences, please search for “cookie” in the “Help” portion of your browser.

• An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). The IP address can be used to diagnose problems with a server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to a Site, and administer and improve the Site.

• “Internet tags” (also known as Web Beacons, single-Personal Information xel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the Web Site server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor’s computer. Tags may be placed both on online advertisements that bring people to the Site and on different pages of the Site. Such tags indicate how many times a page is opened and which information is consulted.

• “Navigational data” (log files, server logs, and clickstream data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the Site, market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors.

2. Use and Disclosure of Anonymous, Passive Information
This Site may make full use of passively collected anonymous information through the collection methods described above for our own internal operational purposes, including without limitation the right to use such information to provide better service to Site visitors, customize the Site based on your preferences, compile and analyze statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve this Site for your use. We reserve the right to share this information in the same manner as provided below for Personal Information.

3. Use of 3rd Party Cookies – Analytics
This Site reserves the right to use web analytics services provided by third parties, such as the Google™ Analytics service by Google, Inc. These services use cookies (sometimes referred to as 3rd party cookies) which are text files placed on your computer, to help us analyze how users use this Site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this Site (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by the service provider. We will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of this Site, comparing reports on website activity for website operators, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. These services may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on the service’s behalf. These services will not associate your IP address with any other data held by an analytics service provider. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this Site. By using this Site, you consent to the processing of data about you by third party analytics services in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

4. Collection of Personal Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information is information you provide that lets us know specific facts about you so that we can respond to your requests. Depending on the portion of the website you visit and the information you provide, this information could range from your name, address and ZIP code, which you provide in order to receive information from us about certain services, to specific information that you provide to us on an admission form.

If you choose to correspond with us through e-mail, we may retain the content of your E-mail and our response so that we can more efficiently handle any follow-up questions you may have. From time to time, DATACOLOR may use your personal information to contact you by electronic mail concerning your use of our services. These communications are either to confirm orders placed with us, to inform you of important information regarding your account, or about general services provided by Datacolor. If you do not want to receive E-mail from us, please notify DATACOLOR in writing or you may do so automatically on our UNSUBSCRIBE Web page. (Please note that if you elect not to receive E-mail from us, you may still receive order confirmations, as well as notices concerning changes to this Policy or other legal notices.)

• Online Surveys
The information you provide to Datacolor via online surveys and with regards to any promotions on the Site will be used for internal marketing purposes, including for the development of new services and information and, in certain instances, aggregate results of online surveys (without individual identification) will be also shared with the participants of the surveys.

• Friends With Vision

In addition, if you are a subscriber that was referred to us by one of our authorized marketing affiliates, we reserve the right to share your Personal Information with the authorized marketing affiliate that referred You to us.

• In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy
In the event that we are acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your Personal Information is treated, transferred, or used.

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using OGONE gateway software, which encrypts information you input. We reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your username and password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer. Our corporate values, ethical standards, policies and practices are committed to the protection of customer information. In general, our business practices limit employee access to confidential information, and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons, processes and transactions. We have adopted reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect your Personal Information and other sensitive information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or method of data storage can be guaranteed 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your Personal Information with reasonable and appropriate security measures, we cannot ensure or warrant the absolute security of any information you transmit to us or archive at this Site.

We recognizes that privacy is very important to You, and we pledge to protect the security and privacy of any Personal Information that customers provide to us. Not only do we strive to collect, use and disclose personal information in a manner consistent with the laws of the countries in which it does business, but it also has a tradition of upholding the highest ethical standards in its business practices. This Safe Harbor Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) sets forth the privacy principles that we follow with respect to transfers of personal information from the European Union (EU) to the United States.

The United States Department of Commerce and the European Commission have agreed on a set of data protection principles and frequently asked questions (the “Safe Harbor Principles”) to enable U.S. companies to satisfy the EU law requirement that personal information transferred from the EU to the United States be adequately protected. Consistent with its pledge to protect personal privacy, we adhere to the Safe Harbor Principles.

This Safe Harbor Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) applies to all Personal Information received by DATACOLOR in the United States from the EU, in any format including electronic, paper or verbal.

When DATACOLOR collects Personal Information directly from individuals in the EU, it will inform them about the purposes for which it collects and uses their Personal Information, the types of non-agent third parties, if any, to which DATACOLOR discloses that information, and the choices and means, if any, that DATACOLOR offers individuals for limiting the use and disclosure of their personal information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Information to DATACOLOR, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before DATACOLOR uses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected. If DATACOLOR receives Personal Information from its subsidiaries, affiliates or other entities in the EU, it will use such information in accordance with the notices such entities provided and the choices made by the individuals to whom such personal information relates.

    Welcome Datacolor!  I have lots to say but no time now.  Glad to see this though.    I’ll be back soon,
