For the purposes of this Policy, personal information means any information, recorded in any form, about an identified individual or an individual whose identity may be inferred or determined from the information, but does not include business contact information (“Personal Information”). Customer Information is Personal Information provided to PushPolitics Inc. in the course of obtaining or enrolling in PushPolitics Inc. products and services offered through the website (if applicable), and consists of your name, mailing address, email, telephone numbers and payment information.
This Policy does not cover any information, recorded in any form, about more than one individual where an individual’s identity is not known and cannot be inferred from the information (Aggregated Information). PushPolitics Inc. retains the right to use Aggregated Information in any way that it determines appropriate.
PushPolitics Inc. will investigate all complaints and if it is justified, we will take all reasonable steps to resolve the issue. We will also let you know to which public bodies you may complain regarding our privacy practices.
Further, where appropriate, specific authorizations or consents may be obtained from time to time.
Please review this Policy periodically, especially before you provide any Personal Information.
Active Information Collection
The public (unrestricted) areas of the site are not designed to actively collect information from visitors.
Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, cookies, Internet tags, and navigational data collection. PushPolitics Inc. uses IP addresses on this site to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and administer and improve the site.
A cookie is a bit of information that a website sends to your Web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences. PushPolitics Inc. site uses session cookies, which are temporary bits of information used to improve website navigation and to collect aggregate statistical information. They are erased when you exit your Web browser window or turn your computer off.
PushPolitics Inc. site also uses navigational data (log files, server logs, and clickstream data) for system management, to improve the content of the site for market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors.
PushPolitics Inc. does not share Personal Information obtained through cookies or other passive information collection with third parties.
PushPolitics Inc. endeavors to maintain appropriate physical, procedural and technical security with respect to its offices and information storage facilities so as to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.
As part of those precautions, access to Personal Information is restricted to certain employees and external service providers that PushPolitics Inc. has determined need to possess this information, to ensure that PushPolitics Inc. may provide its products, services and information effectively. We use contracts and other measures with outside suppliers to maintain the confidentiality and security of your Personal Information and to prevent it from being used for any unauthorized purpose.
If any employee of PushPolitics Inc. misuses Personal Information, this will be considered a serious offence for which disciplinary action may be taken, up to and including termination of employment. If any individual or organization misuses Personal Information – provided for the purpose of providing services to or for PushPolitics Inc. – this will be considered a serious issue for which action may be taken, up to and including termination of any agreement between PushPolitics Inc. and that individual or organization.
In terms of communicating Personal Information to PushPolitics Inc., you may wish to note that there is no method of transmitting or storing data that is completely secure. While the physical characteristics of each are different, mail, telephone calls, faxes and transmissions over the Internet are all susceptible to possible loss, misrouting, interception and misuse of the information being communicated or transmitted.
PushPolitics Inc. attempts to strike a reasonable balance between security and convenience. In communicating with you, PushPolitics Inc. reserves the right to use a method of communication that is less secure than some of its less convenient alternatives. For example, we now send email as unencrypted plain text (as well as HMTL) because we believe that many of our clients, service providers and other third parties cannot readily process encrypted email. Thus, although this is done for your convenience, the security concern exists that, if misrouted or intercepted, unencrypted plain text could be read more easily than encrypted email.
