Personally Identifiable Information
The SOS4Net website collects personally identifiable information (such as name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address) from website visitors only when visitors voluntarily provide such information to SOS4Net. SOS4Net website visitors who do not want their personally identifiable information collected online are asked not to submit such information to SOS4Net.
SOS4Net website visitors are informed that when they provide SOS4Net with personally identifiable information online, that information is kept within SOS4Net. Visitors are further informed that, unless specifically stated otherwise, the personally identifiable information may be stored and used by SOS4Net to better understand its customers’ needs, to improve SOS4Net products and services, and to contact customers regarding offers that may be of interest to them.
If SOS4Net website visitors previously provided their e-mail addresses to SOS4Net and would like to have their e-mail addresses removed from SOS4Net e-mail mailing lists, SOS4Net asks them to send an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org. SOS4Net informs such visitors that it will use reasonable efforts to delete their e-mail addresses from its existing files.
SOS4Net has no intention of collecting personally identifiable information (name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address) from children (individuals under the age of 13) online and using that information for marketing purposes. Where appropriate, SOS4Net will specifically instruct children not to submit such information on the SOS4Net website.
If a child has provided SOS4Net with an e-mail address, SOS4Net asks that a parent or guardian of the child contact SOS4Net at privacy@DOMAIN.com if they would like the e-mail address deleted from SOS4Net e-mail mailing lists. SOS4Net informs customers that it will use reasonable efforts to delete such e-mail addresses from its existing files.
Personally Identifiable Information Collected Automatically
The SOS4Net website may collect information from website visitors that is not personally-identifiable, including the visitor’s operating system, browser, domain name, and the specific web pages on the SOS4Net website that are accessed or visited. SOS4Net only collects this information in the aggregate, and only uses it to improve the SOS4Net website.
Information Placed Automatically on Visitors’ Computers
SOS4Net informs website visitors that when they visit SOS4Net websites, SOS4Net may store some information on the visitor’s computer in the form of a “cookie” or similar file. These files allow SOS4Net to tailor the website to reflect a customer’s listed or historical preferences. Most Web browsers allow Web users to exercise control over such files on their computers by erasing them, blocking them, or notifying the user when such a file is stored. SOS4Net website visitors are asked to refer to their browser’s instructions to learn about those functions.
