We may ask you to register or to provide personal information and preferences when you visit certain areas of VIASPACE.com, request information, or subscribe to email news update system(s). Specifically, VIASPACE may ask you to provide the following information: [Please include all personal information that may be collected at the site] (the foregoing and any additional information requested by VIASPACE, “Personal Information”).
When you provide VIASPACE with your Personal Information, and you do not ‘opt out,’ VIASPACE and VIASPACE representatives and affiliates may use the provided information to alert you to updated information, new products and services, and other VIASPACE information. Beyond its representatives and affiliates, VIASPACE does not offer or allow the selling of any user-provided information to third parties. VIASPACE complies with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 in all email communications. VIASPACE respects the rights users give us when opting to receive e-mail communications and enforces internal policies to preserve those rights. It is our objective to retain the long-term ability to continue to communicate with our users.
If you send a resume in response to a job opening posted on our Site, we will retain your Personal Information only for the purpose of filling the job opening and will not use it for any other purpose. Please note that submission of a resume will not be via a secure site and we cannot guarantee that others will not view the data while it is being transmitted. For that reason, we discourage the use of Social Security Numbers and other sensitive information in online resume transmissions.
When you interact with the Site, we strive to make that experience easy and meaningful. When you come to our Site, our web server sends a cookie to your computer. Cookies are files that web browsers place on a computer’s hard drive and are used to tell us whether customers and visitors have visited the Site previously. VIASPACE uses the data collected from web server logs and client-side cookies in aggregate form only and does not collect any personally identifiable information. We may use this information to help us better understand what users are seeking and learning at our Site and helps us identify potential navigation issues. Further, we may utilize the services of partners to help manage and optimize our Site and communications. Although our partners may log the information coming from the Site on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used. Any such partners are not permitted to use this information for any purpose other than to provide this service to us and these third parties are required to keep the information confidential.
VIASPACE will always protect the Personal Information that you share with us. VIASPACE stores information internally in a controlled, secure environment. As noted above in connection with the analysis of our Site, we might occasionally hire other companies to provide services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and postal addresses are never shared with outside entities except as set out in this Policy. Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose your Personal Information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Site.
