Any information submitted to SE/ASI on the Site shall be for SE/ASI’s ongoing business purposes and shall be submitted without any expectation of privacy or confidentiality.
SE/ASI and its service providers may collect certain non-personal information from you. This information tells us about how people use our Services so that we can analyze their effectiveness and provide you with a better web experience. We collect and use this information through a variety of technologies, including “cookies” and analysis applications, as discussed below.
(a) Server Information
Like every website, SE/ASI’s servers automatically and temporarily store the following information in the server log files. This information is provided by your browser, unless you have deactivated the function.
- IP address
- File query by the client
- The http response code
- The Internet page from which you visited us (referrer URL)
- The time of the server query
- The browser type and version
- The operating system used on the enquiring computer
The server log files may be periodically analyzed to measure the traffic through our servers, the number of pages visited, and the level of demand for pages and topics of interest.
(b) Site Visit Tracking Technologies
A cookie is a unique alphanumeric identifier that websites use to help identify the number of unique visitors to a website, whether or not those visitors are repeat visitors, and the source of the visits. Cookies cannot be executed as code or used to deliver a virus and thus pose no threat to you. Servers and sites other than the one placing the cookie on your hard drive cannot read the cookie, and no personal information can be gathered by other servers from the cookie. If you prefer not to enable cookies or to disable them, you may do so through your web browser’s security settings. Please note that certain features of the Services may not be available once cookies have been disabled.
Some of SE/ASI’s communications to you may contain a “click-through URL” which links to content on the Services. When you click one of these URLs, it passes information through SE/ASI’s web server before you arrive at the destination web page. SE/ASI tracks this click-through data to help determine interest in particular products and measure the effectiveness of our communications. If you prefer not to be tracked, simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in e-mails you receive from SE/ASI.
SE/ASI may also use web beacons or pixel tags, which are tiny invisible graphic images, in the Services. Web beacons and pixel tags may be used by SE/ASI to count users who have visited its webpages and for related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).
(c) Different Devices
If you use different devices (i.e. your smart phone, laptop, and/or home computer) to access the Services, we may be provided with and collect device-specific information, including your hardware model, operating system version, browser type, unique device identifiers, phone number, and mobile network information.
We recognize that the Services may be accessed from anywhere in the world, and that the laws of the jurisdictions in which some users are located may differ substantially from those of the United States and the State of California. Because we cannot practicably prevent users in different jurisdictions from accessing the Services, you are responsible for knowing and complying with the laws of your jurisdiction. If such laws conflict with your use of the Services or any of their content or functionality, the Services are not intended for you, and we ask you not to use them or submit any information through them.
In the event any privacy or other issue remains unresolved between you and SE/ASI after you contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, all disputes will be settled by binding arbitration administered by an arbitrator of SE/ASI’s choosing or the American Arbitration Association. All arbitration will occur within Los Angeles County, CA. You may contact SE/ASI to make an arbitration request at email@example.com. Neither you nor SE/ASI shall be entitled to join or consolidate claims in arbitration by or against other individuals or entities, or arbitrate any claim as a representative member of a class or in a private attorney general capacity.
