CHITA Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes the types of personal and non-personal information collected by CHITA Inc. (“CHITA” “we,” “us,” or “our”) through our website and through the services offered by CHITA (collectively, the “Service”). This Privacy Policy also describes how we use such information and to whom and under what circumstances we may disclose it.

 

Information Collection

 

Information You Provide To Us

 

We collect personal information from you when you provide it to us, such as when you register for our Service or when you send us a support request. “Personal Information” is information that can be associated with a specific person and could be used to identify that person, but does not include information anonymized to mask the identity of a specific person. Personal Information may include your name, email address, and other information that identifies you personally which you elect to provide to us through the Service.

 

Information We Collect Automatically

 

When you use the Service, we and/or our service providers may collect certain non-personally identifiable information from you, which may include but is not limited to your browser type, operating system, IP address, device type, device ID, Internet service provider, the date and time you access the Service, the types of products applicable to your business, the amount of time you spend using the Service, the number of times you return to the Service and other clickstream information (collectively, “General Data”).

 

We (or service providers used in providing the CHITA Service) may use cookies and web beacons (also called “pixel tags” or “clear gifs”) to collect General Data. A cookie is a small text file that may be stored on the hard drive of your device when you access the Service. A web beacon is a tiny graphic image that we place on the Service or in our emails to you.

 

Currently, we do not respond to “Do Not Track” browser features, but we may do so in the future as industry standards evolve.

We do not sell or rent your Personal Information to third parties without your explicit consent.  We may use your Personal Information to contact you if you have signed up to use the CHITA Service. We or service providers working on our behalf may use the information we collect from and about you for any of the following purposes: (1) to communicate with you regarding your use of the Service; (2) to fulfill your requests for information; (3) to respond to your inquiries; (4) to contact you when necessary; (5) to review Service usage and operations and conduct internal marketing and operational research; (6) to address problems with the Service; (7) to protect the security or integrity of the Service and our business, including detecting and addressing fraud and abuse; and (8) to otherwise operate, maintain and provide the features and functionality of the Service.

 

Information Disclosure

 

We may share the information we collect from and about you with third parties as described above, at your direction, and in the following instances:

 

* As necessary, if we believe that there has been a violation of our terms for the Service or of our rights or the rights of any third party;

 

* As necessary, to identify, investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud or other abuse of the Services;

Links

 

Our website or the Service may provide links to third-party websites for your convenience and information. CHITA does not control those sites or their privacy practices, which may differ from ours. We do not endorse or make any representations about third-party websites. The personal data you choose to give to unrelated third parties is not covered by this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review the privacy policy or any company before submitting your personal information.

 

Children

 

We do not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of the Service is directed to persons under 13. If we learn that personally identifiable information of persons less than 13 years of age has been collected without verifiable parental consent, then we will take the appropriate steps to delete such information.

 

Security

 

CHITA takes appropriate steps to ensure data privacy and security including through various hardware and software methodologies. However, due to the open communication nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and the CHITA website, and the CHITA website and you, will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. Users of the CHITA website do so at their own risk with respect to such communications.
