Adaera is committed to preserving your privacy, trust and confidence. This policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and our services. Because we value your privacy, Adaera will not sell, rent or trade your personal information.
Adaera collects information from our users at several different points on our website. In general, you can visit Adaera on the Internet without telling us who you are and without giving any personal information about yourself. There are times, however, when we or our partners may need information from you. We intend to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you. If you tell us that you do not want us to use this information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your requests, we will respect your wishes.
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the Adaera website. Such personal information is collected only as part of an explicit reguest, such as that used in connection with purchasing our services. The types of personal information collected on these pages are:
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account. We reply via email or phone, in accordance with the users wishes.
We also use some personally identifiable information in conjunction with cookies and web behavioral data in order to help us better understand individual customer needs and behavior, as well as to tailor website content and marketing messages to your interests.
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order and to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
Finally, we use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website.
We employ Google Analytics and WebTrends, software technology that uses clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. Clear gifs may be tied to users’ personally identifiable information. For more information on privacy and WebTrends, please see http://webtrends.com/terms-policies/privacy-statement.
In addition, we use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If users would like to opt-out of these emails, they may do so by replying to the message with "unsubscribe" in the subject line in the email or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our website.
We partner with other third parties, such as WebTrends, to provide specific services. For example, if a user desires to purchase a web analytic solution we share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.
In the event Adaera goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. Users will be notified via email prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal information. If, as a result of the business transition, the users’ personally identifiable information will be used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, they will be given the option of removing their personal information from our system.
Our users are given the opportunity to ‘opt-in’ to having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for information. For example, our newsletter subscription form has an ‘opt-in’ mechanism so users who request our newsletter may receive marketing material on related products or services.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications may 'opt-out' of receiving these communications by replying and placing "unsubscribe" in the subject line of the email, or may email us at email@example.com
Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, Adaera LLC, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
We intend to protect your personal information and to maintain its quality. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. Adaera is not a site that publishes content that is targeted to children and we never collect, use or maintain information at our website from those whom we actually know are under 13.
Should you have other questions or concerns about this statement, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 800.340.3844. Our organization processes all disputes. Please allow 12–24 hours to receive a reply.
