Swissxerâ€™s Commitment To Privacy
Agreements Governing Your Use of Special Features and Password-Protected Areas of This Site
Some of our Sites include special features, such as licensed content or an online store, or password protected areas, such as a discussion forum, a chat room, a careers area, or a customers-only area.
What Personal Information Do We Collect Through Our Sites?
Information You Provide. We collect the personal information you knowingly provide (using your mouse and keyboard) when you use our Sites. The information we collect depends on how you use our Sites. For example, if you sign up to receive email communications from us, we collect your email address and any related information you provide. If you communicate with us using the â€œContact Usâ€ feature, we collect the information you provide when you complete the â€œContact Usâ€ form.
Supplemental Information. From time to time, we may supplement the information you give us with information from other sources, such as information validating your address, information based on your zip code, or information about your business. We may also supplement the information you give us with information we collect from you through other Swissxer Web sites or other channels. For example, if you are a Swissxer customer, we may supplement the information you provide online with information you provide in your other business dealings with Swissxer.
Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser. We collect information that is sent to us automatically by your Web browser. This information typically includes your IP address, the identity of your Internet Service Provider, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. An â€œIP addressâ€ is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. It is used to identify your computerâ€™s â€œlocationâ€ in cyberspace, so that the information you request can be delivered to you. If you use a dial-up connection or a connection that assigns dynamic IP addresses, your computer will be assigned a new IP Address each time you connect to the Internet. If, however, your computer is permanently connected to the Internet using a static IP address, the IP address assigned to your computer will generally be the same each time you use your computer. Although it does not identify you by name, we treat your IP address as your personal information.
Generally, we do not link the information provided by your browser to information that identifies you by name. You should know, however, that when you respond to an electronic communication you receive from us, for example, by opening an email, downloading images or clicking on a link in an electronic newsletter, your browser tells us that you (or someone using your email address) has done so. We use this information to improve our marketing efforts. In addition, we review our server logs â€“ which contain visitorsâ€™ IP addresses â€“ for security and fraud prevention purposes. If criminal activity is suspected, we may share our server logs and the personal information we have collected through this Site with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.
Cookies and Similar Technologies. We use "cookies" and other Web technologies in a number of ways. For example, we may use these technologies to collect information about the ways visitors use our Sites â€“ which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page; to support the features and functionality of our Sites â€“ for example, to save you the trouble of reentering information already in our database or to prompt the settings you established on previous visits to our Sites; and to personalize your experience when you use our Sites.
Generally, the information we collect using these Web technologies does not identify you personally. If, however, you have created a user identity, for example, by signing up to use a password-protected area on one of our Sites, we may link the information we collect using Web technologies to other information that identifies you personally.
If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. You may also delete our cookies as soon as you leave a Site. Although you are not required to accept our cookies when you visit our Sites, if you set your browser to reject cookies, you will not be able to use all of the features and functionality of our Sites.
