We respect the privacy of your information. We provide this explanation about our online information practices as a show of our commitment to protect your privacy.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Data protection and privacy is critical to our business and a top priority for our organization. Our commitment to handling data meticulously and respecting privacy is core to our customer promise.
As you may be aware, new data protection rules in the European Union (EU) known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be in effect as of May 25, 2018. Focused on data privacy, GDPR is the new EU legal framework for the protection of personal data. It includes several key changes to existing EU data protection law, including data breach notification, accountability and enhanced individual rights. GDPR will affect all organizations and public bodies, wherever located, that handle data of persons in the EU. Over the past few years, we have been preparing for this and are taking steps to ensure timely compliance with those rules.

How We Use Personal Data
We use your personally-identifying information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and product offerings, and to customize our site’s content, layout, and services.
We may use your information to deliver information to you that, in some cases, is targeted to your interests, such as targeted banners, new services, and promotions. We may ask you to voluntarily provide us additional information regarding your requests, personal or business interests, or experiences which we may use to customize our service or website for you.
We may use your email address, your mailing address, and phone number to contact you regarding administrative notices, new product offerings, and communications relevant to your interest in our solutions and use of the site.
If you place a request for products or services, we use information to ship your order. If you establish a credit account with us or our providers, we collect additional information, including billing information, credit card number and expiration date, and tracking information from checks or money orders.
We may also use information to resolve disputes, investigate problems, or enforce our User Agreement. At times, we may review status or activity of multiple users to do so. We may disclose or access information whenever we believe in good faith that the law so requires, or if we otherwise consider it necessary to do so to maintain service and improve our products and services.
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to manage our website, and to enhance our site based on the usage pattern data we receive.
We employ reasonable and current security methods to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of information.
Your account information and profile are password-protected. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. Our personnel will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This is to help ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place where others may have access to it.
Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online — for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas — that information can be collected and used by others.
No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
We do not process or own any data submitted by our customers via our quality management software solutions suite (SmartSolve®), and the security and processing of this data is the responsibility of the customers who are the data owners.
