Your privacy is critically important to us. At Cisiv we have a few fundamental principles:
Cisiv Ltd (“Cisiv”) operates cisiv.com. It is Cisiv's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Cisiv collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Cisiv's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Cisiv’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Cisiv may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Cisiv also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Cisiv does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Cisiv’s websites choose to interact with Cisiv in ways that require Cisiv to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Cisiv gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to a blog to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Cisiv are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Cisiv collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Cisiv. Cisiv does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Cisiv may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Cisiv may monitor the most popular blogs. Cisiv may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Cisiv does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Cisiv discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Cisiv's behalf or to provide services available at Cisiv's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Cisiv's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Cisiv will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Cisiv discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Cisiv believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Cisiv, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Cisiv's website and have supplied your email address, Cisiv may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Cisiv and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Cisiv takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying information.
