Halteres Privacy Policy

Effective Date: November 9, 2018

Halteres Associates LLC ("us", "we", or "our") owns the website located at http://www.halteresassociates.com (the "Site"). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site.

We know that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly.

We use your Personal Information to provide services and information which you have requested (such as a newsletter), and for providing and improving the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

This Privacy Policy describes the types of information we may collect from you through the Site, how this information may be used, disclosed and safeguarded, how you can access data, request changes, deletions and corrections, and how you can control its use.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to information we collect by other means (including offline) or from other sources.

Information Collection and Use

While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to your name and email address ("Personal Information").

There are several legal bases for our collection and collection and processing of personal data, including:

  • For our legitimate interests, including the uses listed below;
    To perform a contract;
    • Based on your consent; and
    • For legal compliance.

Communications

We may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you.

Data Collected as You Browse the Site

If you are just browsing the Site, we collect the same basic information that most websites collect. We use common Internet technologies, such as Cookies (see below), and pixel tags and web server logs. The information we collect about visitors to our Site may include the visitor’s browser type, browser version, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We collect this information to better understand how our website visitors use the Website and to monitor and protect the security of the Site(s).

In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this information.

Cookies

Cookies are files with a small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer's hard drive.

Like many sites, we use "cookies" to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Site.

Information We Share with Others

We may partner with another party to provide specific services for us, such as website hosting, analytics, promotional or other support services. We will provide contact or other information necessary for the third party to provide these services for us. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

We are not in the business of renting or selling customer information to other Web sites or businesses. We may share personally identifiable information with unaffiliated third parties if (1) you request or authorize it, (2) the information is provided to provide a service you have requested, (3) the information is provided to comply with the law, applicable regulations, court orders or subpoenas, to enforce our Terms of Use or other agreements, or to protect our rights, property or safety, or the rights, property or safety of our users or others, (4) the information is provided to our agents, outside vendors or service providers to perform functions on our behalf, or (5) the information is provided to such third parties as otherwise described in this privacy policy.

We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of Halteres (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).

Any personally identifiable information you elect to make publicly available on the Website, such as posting comments on our Site, will be available to others. If you remove information that you have made public on our Site, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of our Site, or if other users have copied or saved that information.

We may disclose or transfer your personal information in connection with a sale or transfer of our business. Halteres may, in the future, sell or otherwise transfer some or all of its assets to a third party. Your personally identifiable information and/or technical information we obtain from you may be disclosed to any potential or actual purchasers of such assets and/or may be among those assets transferred.

If you would like to unsubscribe from receiving our newsletter or promotional emails from us, please click on the “Unsubscribe” link contained in any promotional email or contact us at newsletter@halteresassociates.com (and put “Unsubscribe” or “Opt Out” in the subject line).

Because customer communications are often prepared well in advance of deployment (sometimes several months before the communication is made), you may continue to receive some communications after you send us a request not to use your information. We appreciate your patience during this time.

Correcting, Changing or Deleting Information; Disabling Account

You can (a) access, correct, or update your personal information, and/or (b) disable your account to prevent any future communication, by emailing your request to Halteres Customer Service department a newsletter@halteresassociates.com. Please clearly label the subject line “Corrections / Disabling Account”.

Security

We implement a variety of reasonable and appropriate physical, technical, and organizational safeguards designed to promote the security of our systems and protect your personal information from unauthorized destruction, use, modification, or disclosure. However, no method of safeguarding information is completely secure. While we use measures designed to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee that our safeguards will be effective or sufficient. Moreover, you should be aware that that Internet data transmission is not always secure, and we cannot guarantee that information you transmit utilizing the Site is secure.

 Social Media Widgets

Our Site may include social media features, such as the Facebook Like button and other widgets, that run on our Site. These features may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on our Site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the organization providing it.

Our Retention of Your Information

If you subscribe for newsletters or other services, we will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

If you are a visitor to the Sites, we will retain your information for as long as necessary but no longer than one (1) year after your last visit to our Sites.

International Privacy Laws

If you are visiting the Site from outside the United States, please be aware that you are sending information (including personal data) to the United States where our servers are located. That information may then be transferred within the United States or back out of the United States to other countries outside of your country of residence, depending on the type of information and how it is stored by us. These countries (including the United States) may not necessarily have data protection laws as comprehensive or protective as those in your country of residence; however, our collection, storage and use of your personal data will at all times continue to be governed by this Privacy Policy.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to update, change, modify or otherwise alter this Privacy Policy at any time. The use of your information is subject to the privacy policy in effect at the time of use.
