Effective Date: October 30, 2017
We do not automatically collect personally identifiable information in connection with the Service unless you submit an information request form to Provenance through the Service, register with Provenance and sign in to the Service, register an alert, or are invited by another user to receive Provenance email alerts through the Service (as discussed more below). We do track certain information about the visits to our website. We compile traffic-based statistics that show the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Service and individual web pages on the Service. The compilation is an aggregated statistical report that we use internally to understand traffic on the Service, manage the Service, and help diagnose any problems. Unless you are signed in to the Service, register an alert, send us an information request or other communication, or are invited by another user to receive Provenance email alerts through the Service, these traffic-based statistical reports contain no personally identifiable information and are not used to gather such information. We also record information from your computer and browser, including your IP address, Provenance cookie information (as discussed more below), and software attributes. If you register with Provenance and sign in to the Service directly, we may collect information regarding your use of the Service, such as web pages you visit.
When you submit an information request form to Provenance through the Service, when you register with Provenance and sign in to the Service directly, when you register and alert, or when you are invited by another user to receive Provenance emails alerts through the Service, Provenance may collect personally identifiable information, including the following:
- your name;
- your contact information, such as email address and/or physical address;
- the type of information that you are seeking if you submit an information request form to Provenance through the Service, and any information that you include in that form;
- the names of the individuals whom you have invited to receive Provenance email alerts through the Service;
- information relating to the Provenance links that you click on and emails that you open through the Provenance email alerts (which information may be collected through user-specific Provenance links and web beacons, as discussed more below);
- the names of individuals who invited you to receive Provenance email alerts through the Service; and
- your job title and the name of your company if you submit such information through communications to Provenance that you initiate through the Service.
We may use user-specific links and web beacons in Provenance email alerts to collect information relating to the Provenance links that you click on and emails that you open through the Provenance email alerts. These user-specific Provenance links and web beacons are small snippets of code contained in Provenance email alerts. If you prefer not to receive user-specific Provenance links and web beacons and want to unsubscribe to Provenance email alerts, you may unsubscribe by clicking "Unsubscribe" in any Provenance email alert or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use information gathered through the Service for the following general purposes: to fulfill your requests for information or services, improve the Service and other products and services offered by Provenance or its affiliates, contact you regarding the Service or other products and services offered by Provenance or its affiliates, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.
We will not sell your personally identifiable information to third parties, and we will not provide your personally identifiable information to third parties except as described below.
We may also disclose personally identifiable information collected through the Service if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of our Terms of Service; to protect and defend our rights and interests and those of our users; or as otherwise required by law.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet or e-mail is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect personally identifiable information that you submit to us, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Service. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
If you choose to provide us with personally identifiable information, you consent to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers located in the United States.
We will strive to give you access to your personally identifiable information for any purpose, including to request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if Provenance is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical or require disproportionate technical effort, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. Access, correction, or deletion requests can be made by contacting us at email@example.com.
