1. What Information Is Collected Through The Service? From Whom Is It Collected? How Is It Collected?In the course of providing users (each a "User") with the Service, SDR needs to collect and maintain certain information. This Policy answers some questions about what information SDR collects, what SDR does with it, and how SDR protects it.
1.1. Private Information. When Users use the Service, SDR collects the following types of information: (i) email addresses (which SDR may use from time to time to distribute transcripts, distribute news or information about SDR or the Service, or communicate with Users regarding service issues, among other purposes); (ii) User First Name and Last Name; (iii) User Address, including city, state, country, and zip code; (iv) User employer/company; (v) User employer/company Address; including city; state; country; and zip code; (vi) User Telephone Number; (vii) User Fax Number; and (viii) User Credit Card Type, Number, Expiration Date.
1.2. Aggregate Information. Certain information that is not provided directly by anyone is collected by SDR regarding Users who browse the SDR Web Site. Aggregate Information includes, but is not limited to, a User's (i) Internet browser type (e.g., Internet Explorer); (ii) IP address; (iii) resolution settings; (iv) platform type; and (v) originating urls. SDR uses Aggregate Information to (a) help diagnose problems with SDR's server(s); (b) measure usage of the SDR Web Site and the Service; (c) administer the Service and the SDR Web Site; (d) inform SDR's partners as to the number of Users who fall into certain demographic categories; (e) provide SDR's partners with information regarding which Users saw and clicked on certain advertisements on the SDR Web Site; or (f) perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior or Users to measure User demographics generally.
3. Who Is Collecting The Information?All Information collected on the SDR Web Site and as part of the Service is collected and maintained primarily by SDR. SDR's affiliates or sister companies, or third party contractors involved in the processing of a User's transaction (such as SDR's payment processing and fulfillment partners), and law enforcement and government agencies may receive and maintain such Information as well.
4. Is The Information Shared With Anyone?SDR does not disclose any Private Information about its customers to anyone except as necessary to perform the service you request and/or as permitted by law. We do not sell or exchange customer lists or customer information for marketing purposes. We collect and use the information we believe necessary to complete authorized transactions. Customer information is utilized to evaluate, process, administer and enforce the transactions Users request and authorize.
We restrict access to customer's Private Information to those employees who need to know the information in the course of providing the transactions Users request and authorize. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in an effort to secure your Private Information. We afford prospective and former customers the same protections as our existing customers in this regard.
