BetterCE recognizes the importance of protecting your personal and financial information. The following information is designed to help you understand the information collection practices of BetterCE.
Sites Covered by this Privacy Statement
Information Collection and Use
Personally Identifiable Information: The personally identifiable information you submit to BetterCE is used only to service accounts and/or to provide you with information on BetterCE products and services.
Additionally, if you are accessing parts of BetterCE’s Website that are password protected, then (a) once you submit your password and enter, the Website will recognize who you are and collect all information that you submit, including all electronic information (including all transaction information), and (b) any information collected about you from this Website may be associated with other identifying information that we have about you.
Aggregate Information: We generally record certain usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to our Website. This information may include the websites that you access immediately before and after your visit to our Website, the Internet browser you are using and your Internet Protocol (IP) address. If we use such data at all it will be on an aggregate basis, and we will not disclose to third parties any information that could be used to identify you personally.
“Cookies” are small files placed on your hard drive. Each website that you visit can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser preferences allow it. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on our Website. In addition, a number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously.
Compliance with Laws: BetterCE does not automatically collect personally identifiable information from visitors to our Websites. We will not provide any personally identifiable information to any other persons, except (a) if we are required to make disclosures to the government or private parties in connection with a lawsuit, subpoena, investigation, similar proceedings or regulatory examination, (b) to comply with applicable laws or regulations, (c) to enforce these Terms, or (d) to share information with our affiliates or service providers in connection with providing services to you. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any such information in those circumstances.
E-mail and Marketing
BetterCE does not sell or share our customers’ e-mail addresses, nor will we provide your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes; however, we may share your information with third-party vendors contracted by BetterCE to provide services on our behalf. For example, we may use a third party to provide communication services such as email delivery or advertising. You can opt-out of email communications from us at any time by using the opt-out links included in our communications, or emailing us directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although this Website is not targeted toward children, we are concerned about the safety and privacy of children who use the Internet. Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information without verifiable parental consent, we will use our best efforts to remove such information from our files. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personally identifiable information without verifiable parental consent, he or she should contact us.
Third Party Websites
No data transmission over the internet can be 100% secure, so BetterCE cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you submit to us on this Website. However, BetterCE seeks to protect your personal information when you transact business on our Website by requiring the use of a browser software program that supports industry standard SSL encryption with 128-bit key lengths. The “128-bit” designation refers to the length of the key used to encrypt the data being transmitted, with a longer key representing a higher level of security.
This privacy statement has been updated as of September 2014. We reserve the right to change this statement. If we change it, we will post the current privacy statement on this page. Any changes to this statement will be effective as of the day they are posted.
