Our Commitment to Privacy
Our business customers' privacy is important to us. To better protect that privacy, Blind Country is providing this notice to explain our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
The Information We Collect
In general, you can visit the Blind Country web site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may need information from you. Personal information like your name, address and e-mail address is obtained only when voluntarily submitted, such as when you subscribe to newsletters, respond to user surveys, register for programs or events or license software. Information that you supply will relate to the customer relationship that Blind Country has with you or your organization.
How We Use It
If you choose to give us personal information via the Internet that we or our business partners request, it is our intent to let you know how we will use such information.
Blind Country will use your personal information to fulfil subscription requests and orders for software and services made online and to provide other services you request. We may also use the information you supply to:
- Make the Web site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.
- Help us customize content most relevant to you.
- Notify you about important news concerning Blind Country, including new products and services, product updates and technical support issues, and special offers we think you may be interested in.
In the process of administering our site, we maintain and track usage through Web server logs. Web server logs provide such information as what types of browsers are accessing our site, what pages receive high traffic, and the times of day our servers experience significant load. We use this information to improve the content and navigation features of our site. Anonymised or aggregated forms of this data may be used to identify future features and functions to develop for the site and provide better customer service. We do analyse some of our web services, such as Demos and Downloads, at the individual level in order to improve the quality of those offerings and to better tailor our marketing to our customer needs. In general, web analysis data is not used to identify you personally.
How We Share It
We will not sell, rent or lease to others your personally identifiable information. We will share the personal data you provide only with other Blind Country entities and/or business partners except as provided below.
Blind Country will use and share the personally identifiable information you provided to us in ways related to those described above. We reserve the right to disclose any and all pertinent customer information to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.
Our Commitment to Data Security
Blind Country is concerned about the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We use encryption technology when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information.
Links to third-party Web sites from the Blind Country Web site are provided solely as a convenience to you. If you use these links, you will leave the Blind Country site. We have not reviewed these third-party sites and do not control them. Blind Country does not assume responsibility for any of these sites, their content, or their privacy policies. Blind Country does not endorse or make any representations about them or any information, software or other products or materials found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. If you decide to access any of the third-party sites linked to the Blind Country site, you do so at your own risk.
Newsletters, Alerts and Invitations
If you register to receive newsletters, alerts or invitations, you will be asked to provide your e-mail address, the topics in which you are interested, and other demographic information. Other information may also be necessary depending on the type of newsletter or alert requested. This information is used solely to enable us to provide the requested newsletters and alerts to you. Some electronic communications may record anonymous data related to the response. Analysis of this data is solely for the purpose of improving our content and customer service.
You are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having your information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, we provide an 'opt-out' mechanism if you do not wish to receive unsolicited email marketing materials from us and we will take reasonable steps to honour such email opt-out requests.
Your Acceptance of These Terms
By using the Blind Country Web site, you signify your assent to this Privacy Statement. If Blind Country updates or changes this Privacy Statement, the changes will be made on this page. Your continued use of the Blind Country Web site following the posting of changes to this Privacy Statement will mean you accept those changes.
