In addition, Explorys does not share any personally identifiable information of any individual with any third party unrelated to Explorys, except to the entity permitting the individual to access the Explorys Data Services or in situations where we must provide information for legal or regulatory purposes or investigations.
Forms Our Website contains forms through which individuals may request information or supply feedback to us. In some cases, telephone numbers, email addresses or return addresses are required so that we can supply requested information to you.
After you fill out a form, we may contact you with follow-up information. We do not provide any information supplied on our Website forms to any outside organization for any reason (other than where we may be required to by law, or as necessary to process credit card information). We do not save this personal information for any other reason.
Surveys Occasionally, we may survey visitors to our Website. The information from these surveys is used in aggregate form to help us understand the needs of our visitors so that we can improve our Website. We generally do not ask for information in surveys that would personally identify you. If we do request contact information for follow-up, you may decline to provide it. If survey respondents provide personal information (such as an email address) in a survey, it is shared only with those people who need to see it to respond to a question or request.
Email "Phishing" is a scam designed to steal your personal information. If you receive an email that looks like it is from Explorys asking you for your personal information, do not respond. We will never request your password, user name, credit card information or other personal information through email.
User Name and Password In the event you access any Explorys Data Services requiring a username and password, you are solely responsible for keeping such username and password strictly confidential.
Data Retention Explorys will retain your information for as long as an individual Explorys Data Services account is active or as needed to provide our subscribers services, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
Accessing and Updating Personal Information Requests to change personal information submitted via the Website can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Requests to change personal information associated with the Explorys Data Services should be directed to the individual’s designated administrator, who is a representative of the Explorys subscriber through which the individual accesses the Explorys Data Services. If you do not know who your administrator is, you may request that information by contacting email@example.com.
Quality Individuals providing Explorys with personal information are responsible for providing accurate and complete personal information and for contacting Explorys via the above channels if correction of such information is required.
Monitoring and Enforcement For site security purposes and to ensure that the Explorys Data Services remain available to all authorized users, Explorys employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information are strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act, and such other federal, state or local law as is applicable.
Explorys collects non-personal information such as website usage, traffic patterns, site performance and related statistics based on our tracking of your visits to the Website and/or Explorys Data Services.
IP Addresses Explorys Web servers automatically collect the IP (which stands for Internet Protocol) address of the computers that access our site. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you access the Internet. It is not truly personally identifiable information because it is possible for different individuals to access the Internet via the same computer. Explorys uses this information in aggregate form to understand how our Website and the Explorys Data Services are being used and how we can better serve visitors.
Please note that although such information is not personally identifiable, Explorys can determine from an IP address a visitor's internet service provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.
First Party Cookies Explorys collects information about visitors to our site using "first party cookies”, which are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser. Cookies are never associated with specific personal identities. First party cookies are distinct from third party cookies that they are created and directly served by the company hosting the Website or the Explorys Data Services.
Explorys uses two types of “cookies” on this site:
• We use persistent cookies to recognize a repeat visitor, enabling us the opportunity to offer the visitor a set of services or information requested in a previous visit. • We use session cookies to store user authentication information and to track a visitor’s path through the Explorys Data Services for internal evaluation purposes, including but not limited to helping us understand how people use the Explorys Data Services.
You can delete our cookies at any time. The "help" section, located on the toolbar of most browsers, will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Since cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of our website's best features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.
SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
Please note that our forms are encrypted to protect your privacy. Once the information is sent to our site, it is kept in secure databases where it is not available to unauthorized users. Explorys periodically reviews and modifies, where appropriate, its security policies and procedures. We use reasonable care to protect your personally identifiable and confidential information provided by you to our site. Explorys has in place a security program that seeks to mitigate this risk substantially.
