Argistics LLC is committed to protecting your privacy We want you to be as comfortable as possible using the Argistics LLC Service, a service that enables users to communicate with merchants through instant messaging or other means of communication (the “Service”). We are dedicated to protecting the privacy of those who use the Service.
We may collect two types of information: non-personally identifying information and personally identifying information:
When you use the Service, we will automatically collect some non-identifying statistical information ("Non-Personally Identifying Information"). Such Non-Personally Identifying Information includes information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as IP address, browser type and language, access times, and referring web site addresses. Non-Personally Identifying Information may also include other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Service.
We may collect information (including information that is Personally Identifying Information) from you in the following manners. We will keep transcripts and recordings of your Conversations, including any Personally Identifying Information you choose to provide within them. We will keep any form-based information requests you choose to submit, including any Personally Identifying Information you choose to provide within them.
To help manage your communication session, track your preferences, and personalize your experience, we use a standard feature of browser software called “cookies.” We collect Non-Personally Identifying Information passively using cookies. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (though a form-based information request, for example) we won’t know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer. The only Personally Identifying Information a cookie can contain is information you supply. A cookie cannot read unrelated data off your hard drive. Most web browsers and security software automatically accept cookies. However, if you wish, you may disable “persistent cookies” and still use the Service. If you chose to disable “session cookies,” you will not be able to utilize the Service because it requires a session cookie to work on your computer.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. The Service is not designed for or directed to children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect Personally Identifying Information from any person we know is under the age of 13. We urge all parents or guardians to participate in their children's exploration of the Internet, and to teach their children about protecting their personal information while online
The Non-Personally Identifying Information we gather will be utilized to improve the performance of the Service. It will also be utilized to assess and analyze usage and other patterns of interest and it will be shared with our customers, the media, and others.
The other information we collect, including transcripts and recordings of your Conversations and forms-based requests that may include Personally Identifying Information, will be shared on a tightly restricted basis with authorized users representing the merchant(s) with whom you communicated, the provider(s) of the web site(s) from which you initiated the Conversation(s), and Argistics LLC. Their use of the information will be subject to the terms of their respective privacy policies. Argistics LLC will not sell, rent, or otherwise share Personally Identifying Information to third parties except as disclosed above.
We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access that are located in controlled facilities.
Notwithstanding these commitments to protect your information (including Personally Identifying Information) from loss, misuse or alteration by third parties, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security and privacy of any information you transmit through your use of the Service.
