1. The Information Contraline Collects

Information You Provide:
The Contraline Website does not collect or solicit any personal information during use or access to the Contraline Website. However, you can provide to Contraline what is generally called “personally-identifiable” information (such as your name, email address, postal mailing address, and telephone numbers) only if you choose to contact Contraline via email from the website or by submitting your résumé for the open positions at Contraline listed under the “Careers” section of the Contraline Website.

When you access the Contraline Website, we may send one or more cookies – small text files containing a string of alpha-numeric characters – to your computer. Contraline may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Contraline Website. Persistent cookies can be removed. Please review your web browser “Help” file to learn the best way to modify your cookie settings.

“Automatically Collected” Information:
When you access the Contraline Website we may automatically record certain information from your system by using different types of tracking technology. This “automatically collected” information may include Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), versions of software installed, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Contraline Website, and the dates and times that you visit the Contraline Website.

2. The Way Contraline Uses Information

Contraline uses the information that we collect to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features and services found on the Contraline Website, as well as to comply with applicable laws.

We will not use, without your further consent, your email address or other contact information you may choose to provide when contacting Contraline via email, except to respond to your initial email.

Contraline uses all of the information that we collect to understand the usage trends and preferences of our Users, to improve the way the Contraline Website works and looks, and to create new features and functionality.

Contraline may use “Automatically Collected” information and “Cookies” information to: (a) automatically update the Contraline Website on your system; and (b) monitor aggregate site usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages accessed.

3. When Contraline Discloses Information

We may disclose some Automatically Collected and other aggregate non-personally-identifiable information to affiliated companies or other businesses or persons to: provide website hosting, maintenance, and security services; conduct data analysis and create reports; offer certain functionality; and assist Contraline in improving the Contraline Website and creating new features and functionality. We require that these parties process such information in compliance with this Privacy Policy. We authorize only a limited use of such information for the listed purpose, and we require these parties to use reasonable confidentiality measures.

Contraline may disclose User information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. copyright law) or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant in the manner required by the requesting entity.

Contraline also reserves the right to disclose User information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability; protect Contraline from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; to investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; to assist government enforcement agencies; to protect the security or integrity of the Contraline Website; or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Contraline, our Users, or others.

4. Your Choices

If you do not contact Contraline by email or submit your résumé for the open positions at Contraline listed under the “Careers” section of the Contraline Website, then your use of the Contraline Website will not provide your personally-identifiable information to Contraline.

5. Data Security

Contraline uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Contraline, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Contraline makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

If Contraline learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Contraline may post a notice on the Contraline Website if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach you should notify us at info@contraline.com.

6. Children’s Privacy

If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not email or contact Contraline at any time or in any manner.

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Contraline does not knowingly collect or maintain personally-identifiable information from persons under 13 years-of-age. If Contraline learns that personally-identifiable information of persons less than 13-years-of-age has been provided to Contraline, then Contraline will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.

If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has provided personal information to Contraline, then please contact Contraline at info@contraline.com to have that child’s information deleted.

7. International Visitors

For Users visiting the Contraline Website from the European Economic Area or other non-U.S. territories, please note that any data you send in an email to the Contraline Website will be transferred outside the European Economic Area or such other non-U.S. territory for use by Contraline and its affiliated companies for any of the purposes described herein. In addition, because Contraline operates globally, we may make information we gather available to worldwide business units and affiliated companies. By providing any data on the Contraline Website, you hereby expressly consent to such transfers of your data to the United States or other countries.

8. In the Event of Merger or Sale

In the event that Contraline is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity sold or undergoes a change of control, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from the Contraline Website as part of that merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.
