We may use the information to respond to your requests and for our own internal purposes. Other purposes for which we may use your information may be disclosed to you when you provide your information. Where you indicate your consent, we may also provide you with helpful information, news and updates of Compliance Architects® services and seek your views on our services. Please note that by submitting personally identifiable information, you are consenting to such information being processed for the above listed purposes. For the above purposes, you agree that Compliance Architects® may use and store any such information provided by you. Third party suppliers, selected by Compliance Architects®, may also use and store your information, in accordance with Compliance Architects® instructions for the above purposes. In this context please note that your information may be held and/or used in countries outside of the United States. Although laws regarding the protection of personal data in countries outside of the United States may not require the same standards as United States laws, Compliance Architects® will make every effort to protect your information from loss or unauthorized disclosure.
Sharing Personally Identifiable Information
Compliance Architects® will not sell personally identifiable information to any third party for any purpose. We may disclose your personally identifiable information to our selected suppliers (as described above). We may also disclose your information in the following circumstances:
- (i) when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to you, or otherwise injuring or interfering with Compliance Architects® rights, property or operations, other users of this site, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities; or
- (ii) when we believe the law requires it, or in response to any demand by law enforcement authorities in connection with a criminal investigation, or civil or administrative authorities in connection with a pending civil case or administrative investigation.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Compliance Architects® may also collect non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to track data such as the total number of visits to our web sites, the number of visitors to each page of our web site, and the domain names of our visitors’ internet service providers. We may use this information, which remains in aggregate form, to understand how our visitors use our web sites so that we may improve them and the services we offer. No personally identifiable information is disclosed in this process.
Use of IP Addresses
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a set of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you log on to your internet service provider or through your organization’s local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). Web servers automatically identify your computer by the IP address assigned to it during your session online.
Links to Other Web Sites
To ensure the security and confidentiality of personal data that we collect online, Compliance Architects® uses data networks protected by standard firewall and password protection. Only authorized employees have access to the information you provide us. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur; we make every effort to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.
