Symmetry Software (SYMMETRY) believes
that privacy is important to the success and use of the Internet. This statement sets forth SYMMETRY's
Policy, SYMMETRY will prominently display a notice of this change on our home page and throughout the website.
What is personally identifiable information?
"Personally identifiable information" is information about you, such as
name, address, e-mail address, phone number, credit card number, social
security number, and so on. The only personally identifiable information
SYMMETRY collects is your name, email, and phone number.
SYMMETRY also collects nonpersonal information
that helps us to understand site visitor demographics such as
company, size of company, industry, job function, etc. Our employees
are trained and required to safeguard your information and, using
physical, electronic and procedural safeguards, we restrict access
to personal information to those employees and agents for business purposes only. Additionally,
we routinely review the adequacy of our security procedures.
How is information collected, used,
We do not share or sell your personal information to anyone.
We do not give your personal information to anyone outside of SYMMETRY for their
promotional or marketing use. We do not collect personally identifiable
information unless we first ask you for it during the registration
process. If you opt to receive additional information during the registration
process, you may get periodic emails from SYMMETRY or our trusted
partners. These emails will contain information from companies that offer
legitimate products and services typically in the finance, taxation, accounting
or payroll related areas. Again, SYMMETRY does not share or sell
your personally identifiable information to these companies; we directly
manage any email campaigns on behalf of these trusted partners. Finally,
you may always unsubscribe from future informational emails if you wish.
Whether you provide any information is entirely
up to you. If you have voluntarily provided information, you consented to the collection
and use of your personally identifiable information as described in this
visitors to our sites, such as volume, traffic patterns, visitor demographics
and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but
these statistics will include no personally identifiable information.
SYMMETRY may also disclose information in special cases when we have a good
faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements
or comply with legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights
or property; (c) enforce the Web site Terms and Conditions of Use; or (d)
act to protect the interests of our users or others.
What are cookies and how are they used?
Some SYMMETRY sites, like many other commercial web sites, may
utilize a standard technology called "cookies" to collect information
about how our site is used. Cookies were designed to help a web site operator
determine that a particular user had visited the site previously and thus
save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user
was browsing the site. Cookies are small strings of text that web sites can
send to your browser. Cookies cannot retrieve any other data from your hard
drive or obtain your e-mail address. If you are simply browsing a SYMMETRY
informational site, a cookie may be used to identify your browser
as one that has visited the site before.
We may also make use of memory-based cookies
so that we can provide information based on preferences you have
indicated while using the site. Although you have the ability to modify
your browser to either accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is sent, or reject
all cookies, it may not be possible to utilize SYMMETRY services which
require registration if you reject cookies.
What are your choices regarding collection,
use, and distribution of your information?
If you have voluntarily provided information, you consented to
the collection and use of your personally identifiable information
to permit that use, you can contact your account manager to make such changes.
How do we protect your information?
We exercise great care to protect your personally identifiable information.
This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques
such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection and site monitoring.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to
be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally
identifiable information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any
information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true
for information you transmit to us via e-mail. We have no way of protecting
that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we
make our best effort to ensure its security on our servers. Internally, we
will restrict access to your personally identifiable information to
employees who need access to the information in order to do their jobs.
These employees are limited in number, and are committed to our privacy
policies. We will review our security arrangements from time
to time as we deem appropriate.
How can you help protect your information?
If you are using a SYMMETRY web site for which you registered and chose an Access Code, we recommend that you do not divulge your Access Code to anyone. We
will never ask you for your Access Code in an unsolicited phone call or in an
unsolicited e-mail. Also remember to sign out of the registered site and
close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to
ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if others have access to your computer. Other
SYMMETRY sites may contain links to other sites, including those of our business
partners. While we seek to link only to sites that share our high standards
and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices
employed by other sites. If you have questions or concerns regarding this
Policy, please contact us.
