Element Three, Inc. is committed to protecting your privacy online. Please read the information below to learn the following regarding your use of our website.

You acknowledge that this Privacy Policy is part of our site’s Terms of Use, and by accessing or using our site, you agree to be bound by all of its terms and conditions. If you do not agree to these terms, do not access or use this site.

We reserve the right to change the Privacy Policy at any time. Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by means of posting a notification on this site.

The Information We Collect

In order to best provide you with our numerous services, we may collect two types of information about our users: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information. Our goal when collecting this information from you is to provide you with the most efficient and customized experience while using our site.

Personally identifiable information refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in the numerous activities on this site, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself. A list of the types of personally identifiable information that may be collected are your name, mailing address, email address, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal identifiable information, which may include information obtained from questions that you may answer concerning services you may be interested in or content that you may submit via the site or for site promotions.

Non-personally identifiable information refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather information about you based upon how you visit our site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and aggregated basis. A list of the types of non-personally identifiable information that we may collect include: current internet protocol address and type of browser you are using (e.g. Firefox, Google Chrome), the type of operating system you are using (e.g. Windows or Mac OS), sites visited before and after you visit our site, the type of handheld or mobile device used to view the site (e.g., iPhone, Blackberry), location information, and the content and the advertisements you have accessed, seen, forwarded and/or clicked on.

We work with third parties to provide us with analyses of the usage and browsing patterns of visitors to our site by tracking non-personally identifiable information about our visitors. These third parties include Google Analytics, HotJar and HubSpot. These services are cookie-based and do not collect personal information. Each third party is subject to its own privacy policy.

We also work with third parties, such as Twitter, to collect user data for purposes of conversion tracking and serving ads targeted to users’ interests.

How We Use Information

We may use the information you provide about yourself to operate our sites and to deliver their services. Additionally we may use this information to communicate with you, such as to notify you about our promotions and services or solicit information from you. We will also use your information to enhance the operation of our site, such as improve our marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyze site use and improve our service offerings. We may also use your information to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our agreements with you, including our site Terms of Use, sales terms and conditions, and this Privacy Policy.

Information Sharing and Disclosure to Others

We may transfer personally identifiable information about you if we, or one of our business units, are acquired by, sold to, merged with or otherwise transferred to another entity. We do not sell, trade or rent your personally identifiable information to others.

We also may disclose personally identifiable information in response to a legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our terms of use, or any situation where we need to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our sites and applicable laws or as otherwise required or permitted by law or consistent with legal requirements.

Your information may be shared through our business arrangements with third parties, such as Twitter, or through services, such as conversion tracking and serving ads targeted to users’ interests. Please refer to the section below on “Cookies” for more information on how you can opt out of internet-based advertising through the “Do Not Track” functionality in your web browser or through such other methods that Twitter may specify from time to time.

When you access certain social media features through our site, you will be sharing information with that social media provider. The information you provide to that social media provider will be governed by their privacy policy.

Cookies

To give you the best online experience possible we may at times use cookies or similar technologies. A cookie is a small data text file, which a web site stores on your computer’s hard drive (if your browser permits) that can later be retrieved to identify you to us. Cookies do not contain personally identifiable information; however, once you choose to enter our site with personally identifiable information, that information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.

Cookies make your use of the site easier, make the site run more smoothly and help us to maintain a secure site. At this time Element Three, Inc. does recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include “Do Not Track” instructions. However, you can change your privacy preferences regarding the use of cookies and similar technologies through your browser. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set or to reject all cookies. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our site may not work properly in that case. For any questions dealing with the disabling of cookies, please consult the “Help” section of your web browser.

Security of Your Information

We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, to maintain data security, and to use correctly the information we collect online. We also use dedicated virtual private servers, a web application firewall and an encrypted database, and we do not allow third parties to have access to the server.

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that a 100% of the data transmissions are secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are limitations to security and privacy of the internet that are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of your personally identifiable information exchanged between you and us cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.

Additionally, other companies which may place advertising on our site may collect information about you when you view or click on their advertising through the use of cookies. We cannot control this collection of information. You should contact those advertisers directly if you have any questions about their use of the information that they collect.
