Collection of Personal Information

As a visitor to a PageTech Site, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. In connection with other activities, such as utilizing online software applications, PageTech may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities.

If you elect to engage in these activities, however, PageTech may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including ZIP code), e-mail address, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal information. When ordering products or services on the Site, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.

When you use the Site, PageTech or third parties authorized by PageTech may also collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to facilitate your use of the Site and its services. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer. We use these environmental variables to facilitate and track your use of the Site and its services. PageTech also uses such environmental variables to measure traffic patterns on the Site. Without expressly informing you in each particular circumstance, we do not match such information with any of your personal information.

PageTech has established relationships with various service providers whose services are available to you from the Site or from websites that are linked to the Site. Typically, these providers offer services that PageTech customers might find useful, such as those that can be used in conjunction with PageTech services and products. In order to use those services, you may be required to provide personal information to the providers. Unless expressly provided to the contrary, personal information that you provide while you are visiting a provider's website will be subject to the privacy policy posted on such site, and personal information that you provide while on the Site in conjunction with a provider's service will be subject to this Privacy Policy. You should be aware that our agreements with these service providers often provide that they will share with PageTech personal information collected from you. In such instances, PageTech may use this information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy. In the situation where sites have a PageTech "look and feel" and you reasonably believe you are on a PageTech site, the site is collecting information in a solely intermediary capacity and does not use personal information for secondary purposes.

In order to reduce errors in our database, authenticate our users, and prevent abuse of our system, we may on occasion supplement the personal information you submit to us with information from third-party sources. For example, we may supplement your Registration Information with address information provided by the U.S. Postal Service to qualify your information and prevent errors in our database. As permissible, we may also supplement the information you provide to us with demographic and other information (such as age or business) stored in third-party databases in order to make it more likely that marketing communications we send will be of interest to you.

How Your Personal Information is used

PageTech collects your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. If you subscribe to a service or register a product, for example, the information is used to register your rights, if any, to technical support or other benefits that may be made available to registered users. As another example, if you enter a contest, information is collected to qualify the entry and to contact you regarding the contest or prize awards. Your personal information is also used to track customer preferences and keep you informed about product upgrades, special offers, and other products and services of PageTech and selected third parties unless you have opted not to receive such communications or such communications are prohibited by law.

PageTech may collect information about the use of the Site, such as the types of services used and how many users we receive daily. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually. PageTech may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.

Your choices with respect to personal information

PageTech recognizes and appreciates the importance of responsible use of information collected on the Site. PageTech may communicate information to you regarding products, services, and special offers available from PageTech or selected third parties unless you have opted not to receive such communications or such communications are prohibited by law, although we may find it necessary to communicate with you regarding your use of the services on the Site. Except in the particular circumstances described in this Privacy Policy, PageTech will also not provide your name to other companies or organizations without your consent.

There are other instances in which PageTech may divulge your personal information, such as where required by law, regulation, or litigation. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that such disclosure should be made for reasons of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance.

Protection of your personal information

The personal information that you provide in connection with registering yourself as a user of PageTech products or services or registering a PageTech product is classified as Registration Information. Registration Information is protected in several ways. Access by you to our product or service is available through a password and unique customer email selected by you. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. In addition, your Registration Information resides on a secure server that only selected PageTech personnel and contractors have access to via password. PageTech encrypts your personal information and thereby strives to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to PageTech.

Personal information that you provide that does not constitute Registration Information also resides on a secure server and is accessible only to selected PageTech personnel and contractors via password. Since this information is not accessible by you, you will not be asked to select a password in order to view or modify such information.

Use of cookies

When you visit this Site, you can browse the Site and access important information without revealing your identity. In order to improve our site, PageTech and it's vendors may use "cookies" to track your visit and provide services. A cookie is small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card and enables PageTech to record your passwords, purchases, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses.

Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. (For some web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies will probably not be able to access those pages.)

While PageTech and our vendors may use cookies to track your visit to the Site, and our web servers automatically log the IP/Internet address of your computer, PageTech does not generally use this information to identify you personally. However, if you expressly provide consent for the Site to "remember" the unique identifier that you select when you register for various activities on the Site, that unique identifier will be stored on a cookie on your computer, linked to your Registration Information, and your navigation path around the Site will be tracked. We associate this data to understand how our Site and services are being used so we can understand our customers and offer appropriate products and services.

PageTech also hires other companies to place our banner ads on other websites and to perform tracking and reporting activities ("third-party advertisement servers"). Aside from IP addresses, they do not collect personally identifiable information in doing this work for us, and we do not give any personally identifiable information to them. Third-party advertisement servers are subject to their own privacy policies.
