Personally Identifiable Information
When you access and use this Site, we or our service providers may obtain data concerning that access and use. This data may include, but is not limited to, your name, address and other demographic information, telephone number, and email address. We will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. If you opt not to provide us with personally identifiable information, no material consequences will result, although there may be functionality on the Site that may be unavailable to you.
Use of Personally Identifiable Information
We may store and process your personally identifiable information in order to fulfill any requests for information that you make of us, provide you access to “members only” portions of the Site, or to better understand your needs and to learn how to improve our Site offerings. We may also use your personally identifiable information to contact you (for example, we may respond to your comments or requests for information). WaterWebster.org may share aggregated customer information such as statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns and related site information with WaterWebster.org’ business partners, but such aggregated information will not contain any personally identifying information of any users of the Site.
The Company may disclose or access your account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
Contacting Us Regarding Your Personally Identifiable Information
If you have submitted personally identifiable information through the Site, and you would like to review, request changes or have that information deleted from our databases, please contact us by sending a letter to WaterWebster.org, Scott Wood, Publisher, 241 Shyrewood Drive, Lawrenceville, GA 30043, Telephone: 404-819-5075. We will then use reasonable efforts to change or remove your personally identifiable information from our files, unless we are entitled or required to retain it pursuant to other agreements or by law. We will use reasonable efforts to supply you with this information and correct any factual inaccuracies in this information. Notwithstanding the prior two sentences, if the laws in your state provide you with additional protections or requires us to comply with more stringent obligations to provide you with, remove, or correct your personally identifiable information, we will comply with those legal requirements.
We use reasonable measures to protect personal information from access by unauthorized persons. This includes, among other things, standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection, and site monitoring. We also use reasonable internal controls to protect personal information from misuse by our employees. Unfortunately, no electronic data or transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we use reasonable measures to protect personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted or otherwise provided to the Site or received from the Site. This is especially true for information that is transmitted via e-mail that is unprotected until it reaches our servers. Once a transmission is received, we use the reasonable measures set forth above to secure our servers.
Internally, we restrict access to personally identifiable information to employees who need access to the information in order to perform their duties. These employees are limited in number and are instructed to adhere to our privacy policies.
When you visit this Site, you can browse the Site and access important information without revealing your identity. In order to improve our Site, we and our vendors may use “cookies” to track your visit. A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card and enables the Company to record your preferences (or passwords or purchases, if any). Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it.
Transfer of Business Assets
As we continue to develop our business, we might acquire or buy other businesses or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that we or substantially all of our assets are acquired, both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable user and customer information will be one of the transferred assets.
