At BuyerGenomics, we value the trust that our clients and consumers place in us. We are committed to protecting the personal privacy of individuals that visit our web site and use our products and services. We have a fiduciary responsibility to our clients as well as to their customers.
We recognize and respect that consumers expect privacy and confidentiality in all dealings with our client and our company. We pledge that we will take the steps necessary to protect the privacy of information shared with our company.
Collection, Use, and Retention of Personal Information
BuyerGenomics uses information collected on this site to help compile broad statistical trends that help us improve navigation and content. We do not sell or distribute non-public information, including email addresses collected via our registration site, to any third party. We will never utilize data obtained from individual consumers without the permission of both our client and the individual consumer.
Security of Personal Information
The management of BuyerGenomics limits employee access to information to those with a business reason for knowing such information. We educate our employees on the importance of maintaining consumer confidentiality and we enforce our privacy policies with appropriate disciplinary procedures.
Protection of Information by Means of Security Procedures
BuyerGenomics operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewalls, encryption, and password protection. The company enforces security procedures to protect confidential information from loss, misuse, or alteration. When customers connect with our secure server, we do collect data to interact with you. This is done through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) which encrypts or scrambles your data so that no one else can read it. The use of SSL does require version 5.0 or higher of Netscape or Microsoft Explorer browsers or the latest version of AOL. Data collected may include, but is not limited to, domain name, pages visited, and length of session. SSL is used only when collecting highly sensitive data.
Sharing of Personal Information
BuyerGenomics will not reveal specific information about consumer accounts or other personally identifiable data to unaffiliated third parties for their independent use except as follows:
- When the information is required to complete a transaction initiated by the consumer;
- When the consumer requests it;
- When disclosure is required by law (e.g. subpoena, investigation of fraud, etc); or
- When the consumer has been informed about the possibility of disclosure for marketing or similar purposes through a prior communication, and the consumer is given the opportunity to decline or “opt out.”
Business Relationships with Third Parties
BuyerGenomics pledges that we will not share information with third parties that do not adhere to similar privacy principles and practices for keeping such information confidential.
