Non-personally identifiable information
In addition, we may also collect non-personally identifiable information, such as the IP host address, pages viewed, browser type, duration and frequency of visits, and other data, and may aggregate any information collected in a manner which does not identify any individual (“Aggregate Information”).

Change of control
Non-personally identifiable information
We use non-personally identifiable information in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Site, so that we can improve the Site and for business and administrative purposes. We may also use or share with third parties for any purpose aggregated data that contains no personally identifiable information.
Please note that, while the Aggregate Information we provide will not identify you personally, in some instances third parties may be able to “de-anonymize” aggregate data to identify you personally based on additional information they have about you or that they receive from third parties. While we do not intend for third parties to de-anonymize the aggregate data we provide, if you are concerned about potentially being personally identified, you should not use the Site.
Social Sharing Features
The Site may offer social sharing features and other integrated tools, such as the Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest buttons (e.g., “Like,” “Tweet” and “Pin It”), which let you share actions you take on the Site with other media. Your use of such features enables the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the entity that provides the social sharing feature. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the entities that provide these features.
Our Site may pass a “cookie” (a string of information that is sent by a web site to be resident on your system’s hard drive, and/or temporarily in your computer’s memory blocks). The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a particular page. Firmatek may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits. Persistent cookies can be removed. This information may include Internet Protocol address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type and operating system, the web pages or services that referred you to our website or the Online Services, the pages you view, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use our website or the Online Services.

For our Site, a “web beacon,” also sometimes called a pixel tag or transparent GIF, is an object that is embedded in a web page. It is usually invisible to you, but allows website operators to check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email communication. We may place web beacons on our Site and in emails or text messages we send to you.
The Site may include third-party advertising, links to other websites, and other content from third-party businesses. These third-party sites, businesses, and advertisers, or advertising companies working on their behalf, may use web beacons and other personal identifiers to measure the effectiveness of their ads, personalize or optimize advertising content and to track users who link from their respective websites to the Site.
We do not have access to or control over such web beacons or personal identifiers that these third parties may use. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these third-party websites. You are encouraged to review the privacy policies of the different websites you visit.
Some third-party advertising companies may provide a mechanism to opt-out of their technology. For more information about the opt-out process, you may visit the Network Advertising Initiative website, available at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.
How We Protect Your Information
We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. However, Firmatek will not be liable for disclosures of your Personal Information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. We have used commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized Internet access to visitor data retained in our servers; however, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, Firmatek cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided online, and you do so at your own risk. Users must accept all risks associated with any data transmission, including the risk that their Personal Information may be intercepted in transit.
Your profile is password-protected so that only you have access to your account information. In order to maintain this protection, do not give your password to anyone. Our staff will never proactively reach out to you and ask for any Personal information, including your password. You should never share devices. This will help protect your information entered on public terminals from disclosure to third parties.
The Site encrypt your credit card number and other Personal Information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology to provide for the secure transmission of the information from your PC to our servers. In addition, only those employees and third parties who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are allowed such access.

- You have the right to withdraw any consent you previously provided to us regarding the processing of your Personal Information, at any time and free of charge. We will apply your preferences going forward and this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before your consent withdrawal.
Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information and Preferences
If you are a registered user, you may access and update your registration information and your preferences to receive e-mail or other communications from us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

While we make efforts to accommodate requests to restrict our use of your information, we reserve the right to delete all or any portion of customer information if we are not able to reasonably accommodate a requested restriction.
To preserve the integrity of our databases, our standard procedures call for us to retain information submitted by users for an indefinite length of time. We understand your submissions as consent to store all your information in one place for this indefinite length of time, if we so wish. If required by law, we will nullify user information by erasing it from our database. We will also respond to written user requests to nullify account information.
