Searce Privacy Policy


Information Collection and Use

We are committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring you feel secure and have a positive experience on our web site. This policy outlines our personal information handling practices for both online and offline data.


Personal Information

At Searce we recognize and value your privacy, and are committed to protecting the confidentiality of both your company and personal information. You can prefer to browse our site without identifying yourself or revealing any information about you or your company. We do not collect any personal data without your consent. We recognize that when you choose to provide us with information about yourself, you trust us to act in a responsible manner.

We may use aggregate information about users for statistical, marketing and other purposes. This information does not reveal the identity of, or any information about, particular users or companies.

Searce strongly advocates the protection of our customers' privacy and are committed to ensuring that your personal and company information is safeguarded. Searce does not disclose any personally identifiable information to third parties unless there is an appropriate legal or business justification. We collect and use only information needed for legitimate business purposes.

We will only use your personal information in the way we specified when it was collected. We will not subsequently change the way your personal information is used without your consent. We need your help in keeping the personal information you have shared with us accurate and up to date. Please notify us of any changes to your personal information. We will not retain your personal information longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.

Information regarding our customers is used solely in the legitimate conduct of business to deliver services and to provide special offers designed to meet the specific needs of our customers.

Searce may also release information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (1) comply with legal or regulatory requirements; (2) enforce or apply terms of the Searce Web site user agreement; or (3) protect the rights, property or safety of Searce or others.


Cookies

Searce may use "cookies" to keep track of visitors to the site. A "cookie" is a small file stored on the hard drive of your personal computer. We may use the information collected in these cookies to deliver content specific to your interests, to save information about the pages that you view on our Web site, or to tailor our Web site to be more useful to you and other visitors. If your web browser allows, you may disable the placement of cookies on your hard drive. Disabling the placement of cookies may prevent you from accessing or using portions of the site. We do not share or sell personally identifiable information stored in or learned from cookie files.

In some instances, we may collect non-personal (aggregate or demographic) data through web logs. This information is used to better understand and improve the usability, performance and effectiveness of the Searce web site. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit and we also measure visitor activity on our web site, but we do so in ways that keep the information anonymous. Searce or its affiliates or vendors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics and to help us provide better customer service.


Security

Searce maintains security procedures to help prevent unauthorized access to confidential information. We update and test our technology to assure the integrity of our systems and to improve upon our existing privacy safeguards wherever possible. We also use technical security measures to prevent unauthorized access to data stored on our secure servers. To maintain the highest level of security, we conduct internal reviews of our security measures on a regular basis.


Other Links

Our web site may provide links to other third-party web sites. Searce is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other web sites, even if prominent links to the sites are provided on our web site. Also, we would ask you to note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to our clients' web sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these (and all) sites.
