“Personally identifiable information” is information that would allow someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your full name, address, telephone number or email address.
(1) What Information Is Collected.
We may collect and store any personal information you enter on the Site or provide to us in some other manner. This includes identifying information, such as your name, address, date of birth, contact information, credit information, and intentions to acquire goods and services. We may also from time to time obtain both personal and non-personal information about you from our affiliates, business partners, contractors and other third parties. In the event of a complaint, we may also receive personally identifiable information about you from other parties in our network or from other users or third parties who may communicate information to us about you in relation to that complaint.
In addition, our servers automatically collect information about which sites users visit and which pages are viewed within the Site, but in these instances, we do not obtain personally identifiable information about you. We use a feature of your browser called a “cookie” to assign a User ID that automatically identifies your computer when you visit the Site. Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your hard drive, not on our Site. We may also use clear GIFs on some pages within the Site. Clear GIFs and cookies make your internet experience quicker and more convenient. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our Site may not work properly if you do.
(2) What Organization Is Collecting the Information.
Valid Evaluation, Inc. owns and operates the Site and is the company that collects personal information when you use the Site. Our mailing address is 2426 Emerson St., Denver CO 80205 our telephone number is (303) 900-8384 and our customer service email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
(3) How the Information Is Used and Disclosed to Third Parties.
We may also use your information on an aggregated basis to do such things as operate our Site, enhance our Site, and sell and deliver advertising or other products. We also use this data, both aggregated and personally identifiable, to enhance your on-site experience by displaying content and marketing messages that we believe will be of interest to you. In some cases, we use your personally identifiable information to improve the delivery of our products and services to you.
(4) Controlling the Collection, Use and Distribution of Your Information.
You can control the content of your personal information by following the instructions stated below in Section 5.
Please note that if you provide any information directly to parties who provide services to our Site or any other sites you encounter on the Internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing information to third parties.
(5) Our Security Procedures.
We have established and maintain reasonable security procedures to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of your personally identifiable information. Unfortunately, there is no perfect security on the Internet, and we do not guarantee that our Site is impenetrable or invulnerable to hackers or other security breaches. Our corporate values, ethical standards, policies and practices are committed to the protection of user information.
Although your privacy is very important to us, due to the existing legal, regulatory and security environment, we cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, in the unlikely event we need to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, we can (and you authorize us to do so) disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.
We hope this policy clarifies our procedures regarding your personal information. We reserve the right to change this policy at any time, so please re-visit this page as often as you wish.
