This Privacy Policy describes SUTERA’s practices with respect to the Account Information, Applicant Information and Personal Information (collectively referred to herein as “Information”) that We collect when You use the Services.

We may use Information for our own internal purposes, including, but not limited to, processing your registration, providing you with information and contacting you via phone or e-mail.  We reserve the right to disclose Information where such disclosure is required by law, considered necessary to prevent or investigate an apparent breach of law, and/or in any other instance where the applicable privacy or other legislation permits such disclosure.

 

We may disclose Information to third parties, including, but not limited to customer service agencies for research and analysis purposes so that we can monitor and improve the Services.  We may disclose Information to other third parties if you consent.

In the event that SUTERA goes through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, Your Information will likely be among the assets transferred. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of SUTERA or its assets may continue to use Your Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. You hereby consent to SUTERA sharing Your Information under the above circumstances.

 

2.    ANONYMOUS INFORMATION

In connection with Your use of the Services, We may collect any and all information You choose to provide as input, as well as any and all results of that input, as generated by the Services.  For example, to provide the full extent of the Services, We may collect online User activity statistics in order to generate statistics and improve the Services.  You agree that We may use such information for Our own internal purposes, including, but not limited to processing Your registration, providing Services to You, and for research purposes. When used for research purposes, the information is used on an anonymous and aggregated basis.
