CloudBench Applications reserves the right to modify all or some of this Privacy and Legal Policy at any time without notice. If we change our Privacy and Legal Policy, we will post a notice on our website. We will use information only in accordance with the Privacy and Legal Policy under which the information was collected unless we have received explicit authorization from the appropriate user(s) to do otherwise.
If you have any questions about this Privacy and Legal Policy, the practices of this website or your dealings with BasicGov / CloudBench Applications, you can send an email in English to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Information Collection and Use. BasicGov is the sole owner of the customer information collected on this site. We will not share this information in any ways other than those disclosed in this statement. BasicGov collects information from our users at several points on our website.
- Information Requests. Throughout our site, you are provided with the opportunity to contact us via email to ask questions, request information and materials, register for online presentations and demonstrations, or provide comments and suggestions. You may also be offered the opportunity to have one of our representatives contact you to provide information about our products or services. We may request additional personal information from you, such as your name and telephone number, to help us satisfy your request.
- Cookies. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a user's hard drive, containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie provides user benefits and is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information. For example, by setting a cookie on our site, you would not have to enter your password more than once. If you reject the cookie, you may still use our site, though some areas may be functionally limited. For example, you will not be able to take full advantage of our mailing list subscription tools. Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the on-site experience.
- Log Files. Our website servers generate standard traffic log files. We use these files to prepare aggregate traffic statistics for our site. There is no personally identifiable information in these log files. We use IP addresses and cookie values to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movements, and gather broad demographic information to improve the performance of our site.
- Requested Services and Product Evaluations. We communicate with our users to provide requested services, product evaluations, and in regard to issues relating to their account via email or phone.
- Mailing Lists. Users are offered the option of subscribing to relevant mailing lists at various other locations throughout the site for reasons of user convenience only. All new mailing list subscribers will receive a welcome email verifying subscription information. BasicGov’s mailing lists are "receive-only" lists for announcements regarding BasicGov products, services, or promotions. It is not necessary to subscribe to any BasicGov mailing list to use our Web site or purchase our products.
- Surveys & Contests. From time to time, our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user can decide whether or not to disclose their information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code and age range). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of improving our products and our site.
- Security. Our Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When a user submits sensitive information, it is protected both online and offline. Where our registration/order form requires sensitive information, that information is encrypted with SSL, the best encryption software in the industry. While on a secure page such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked or open.
- Suppliers. We may outsource certain services required to deliver BasicGov. The companies that perform these services do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
- Links. This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that BasicGov is not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site, and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the BasicGov Web site.
- Public Forums. BasicGov makes mailing list archives, chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to its users. As any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public, caution should be exercised when disclosing personal information.
- Choice/Opt-in. Our users are given the opportunity to "opt-in" to having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our newsletter form has an "opt-in" mechanism to add their email address to our lists for receiving marketing materials. We only add users to our lists when they expressly agree to be added. Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.
- Opting Out. Periodically, BasicGov notifies our users of new products, announcements, upgrades, and updates. If at anytime you would prefer not to receive these notifications, simply email email@example.com and type "unsubscribe from newsletter" in the subject line. Please be aware that you may not opt out of receiving information regarding the initial use, evaluation, or expiration of our products or services.
