Privacy Policy

 SQUARIS is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors of its web site. As such, your privacy is extremely important to us. We operate the site by the principles set forth below. The following SQUARIS privacy statement will outline:


1. What kind of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) we collect through our web site;
2. How that information is collected and used;
3. With whom that information is shared, and who has access to that information;
4. Choices available to you regarding the collection, use and distribution of that information; and,
5. Security procedures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of that information under our control.

Information Collection and Use

SQUARIS is the sole owner of the information collected on this web site. Our site collects non-personally identifiable information about you, such as the server your computer is logged onto and your browser type. This information will not be sold, shared with, or rented to anyone.

Cookies

"Cookies" are pieces of information that a web site transfers to your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes. Cookies can make the Web more useful by storing information about your preferences on a particular web site. Cookies themselves do not personally identify a user, but they can identify a user's computer. The cookies we use do not record PII. Once you close your Internet browser, the cookie simply terminates. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. However, if you'd prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies, although our site may not perform at optimum levels without cookies.

Text or Log Files

A Text or Log file is a file that describes which files or Web pages a site visitor has requested from our server. Like most public web sites, our site collects non-PII data about you when you arrive at our site through text files and your Internet Protocol (IP) address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you connect to the Internet; this number is not linked to any PII. The number is used by network computers to identify your computer so that data can be sent to you. SQUARIS does not collect IP addresses.

Sharing

SQUARIS will only disclose PII if required to do so by law. With that exception, under no circumstances will we share single user or aggregated demographic data with our partners without explicit consent of our users.

Security

We have taken every precaution to ensure the protection of your information on our web site. When you submit sensitive information to SQUARIS via our web site, that information is protected both online and offline. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to any PII.

Furthermore, all our employees are kept up to date on SQUARIS’ security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy and what we can do to ensure our visitor's information is protected. Finally, the servers that we use to store PII are password-protected and kept in a secure environment behind a locked door. If you have any questions about the security at our web site, please e-mail us at secretariat@squaris.com
