This Statement is effective as of November 1, 2016.
Collection of Personal Information
You may choose to give us personal information directly in a variety of situations. For example, you may want to give us your name and contact information to communicate with you, to order a product, to process an order, to register for a service, to provide you with a subscription, or to do business with us if you are a supplier or a business partner. You may also provide your credit card details to buy something from us. If you tell us that you do not want us to use your information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your request, we will respect your instructions.
We may also collect information relating to your use of our websites using various technologies. For example, when you visit our websites, we may log certain information that your browser sends us, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access time, and referring websites addresses, and we may collect information about the pages you view within our sites and other actions you take while visiting us. In addition, some of our software products include technologies that allow Clearvoter to collect certain information about product use. We may also use such technologies to determine whether you have opened an e-mail or clicked on a link contained in an e-mail. Collecting information in this manner allows us to collect statistics about the usage and effectiveness of our websites, our software products, and personalize your experience to tailor our interactions with you. From time to time, we may also collect information that pertains to you indirectly through other sources.
Use of Personal Information
The following paragraphs describe in more detail how Clearvoter may use your personal information.
Fulfilling your Transaction Request
If you request something from Clearvoter, for example, a product and advertisement, technical assistance, a callback, or specific marketing material, we will use the information you provide to fulfill your request. To help us do this, we may share information with others, such as, Clearvoter’s business partners, financial institutions, shipping companies, or postal or government authorities, involved in fulfillment. In connection with a transaction, we may also contact you as part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.
Personalizing your Experience on our Websites
We may use information we collect about you to provide a personalized experience on our websites, such as providing you with content in which you may be interested in and tips to make navigation on our websites easier.
We may use your personal information to support products or services you have obtained from us, such as notifying you of a product update or fix. While providing technical support to you, we may sometimes have incidental access to data that you have provided to us or data that is located on
your system. This data may contain information about you, your organization’s employees, customers, partners, or suppliers.
The information you provide Clearvoter, as well as the information we may have collected about you indirectly, may be used by Clearvoter for marketing purposes. Before we do so, however, we will offer you the opportunity to choose whether or not to have your information used in this way.
You may at any time choose not to receive marketing materials from us by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each e-mail you may receive, or by contacting us directly. Some of our offerings may be co-branded, that is sponsored by both Clearvoter and third parties. If you sign up for these offerings, be aware that your information may also be collected by and shared with those third parties. If you choose to “Email This Page” to a friend or colleague, we will ask for their name and e-mail address. We will automatically send a one-time e-mail sharing the page you indicated, but will not use that information for any other purposes.
Mobile Applications and Use of Information in the Social Computing Environment
Clearvoter intends to release mobile applications for download from various mobile application marketplaces and to provide social computing tools on some of its websites to enable online sharing and collaboration among members who have registered to use them. These include forums, wikis, blogs and other social media platforms. When downloading and using these applications or registering to use these social computing tools, you may be asked to provide certain personal information. Registration information will be subject to and protected in accordance with this Privacy Statement, except for the information that is automatically made available to other participants as part of your profile. These applications and tools may also include supplemental privacy statements with specific information about collection and handling practices.

Any other content you post, such as pictures, information, opinions, or any other type of personal information that you make available to other participants on these social platforms or applications is not subject to this Privacy Statement. Rather, such content is subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use of those applications or platforms, and any additional guidelines and privacy information provided in relation to their use, as well as the process by which you can remove your content from such tools or get help to do so. Please refer to them to better understand yours, Clearvoter’s, and other parties’ rights and obligations with regard to such content. You should be aware that the content you post on any such social computing platforms may be made broadly available to others inside and outside Clearvoter.
Protect the Rights and Property of Clearvoter and Others
We may also use or share your information to protect the rights or property of Clearvoter, our business partners, suppliers, clients, or others when we have reasonable grounds to believe that such rights or property have been or could be affected. In addition, we reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, or the rights of others, or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served upon our websites.

Cookies, Website Beacons and Other Technologies
As mentioned above, we collect information from your visits to our websites to help us gather statistics about usage and effectiveness, personalize your experience, and tailor our interactions with you. We do so using various technologies, including scripts, tags, Local Shared Objects (Flash cookies), Local Storage (HTML5) beacons, and “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as a tag that identifies your computer. While cookies are often only used to measure website usage (such as number of visitors and duration of visit) and effectiveness (such as topics visitors are most interested in) and to allow for ease of navigation and, as such, are not associated with any personal information. They are also used at times to personalize a known visitor’s experience to our websites by being associated with profile information or user preferences. Over time this information provides valuable insight to help improve the user experience.
Cookies are typically categorized as “session” cookies or “persistent” cookies. Session cookies help you navigate through the website efficiently, keeping track of your progression from page-to-page so that you are not asked for information you have already provided during the current or prior visit. Session cookies are stored in temporary memory and erased when the web browser is closed. Persistent cookies, on the other hand, store user preferences for current and successive visits. They are written on your device’s hard disk, and are still valid when you restart your browser. We use persistent cookies, for example, to record your choice of language and country location. You can set your browser in most instances to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it or not. You can also generally set your browser to turn off cookies. Cookies in our software products can generally be turned off in the product itself.
Since cookies allow you to take advantage of some of our websites’ features or features of our software products, we recommend that you leave them turned on. If you block, turn off or otherwise reject our cookies, some websites may not display properly or you will not be able, for instance, to add items to your shopping cart, proceed to checkout, or use any website services that require you to sign in. Some Clearvoter websites and software products may also use website beacon or other technologies to better tailor those sites to provide better customer service. These technologies may be in use on several pages across Clearvoter’s websites. When a visitor accesses these pages, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by us or by our suppliers. These websites beacon usually work in conjunction with cookies. If you do not want your cookie information to be associated with your visits to these pages or use of these products, you can set your browser to turn off cookies or turn off cookies in the product itself, respectively. If you turn off cookies, websites beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages; however, they will not be associated with information otherwise stored in cookies.
We use Local Shared Objects, such as Flash cookies, and Local Storage, such as HTML5, to store content information and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our website or to display Clearvoter advertising on others’ websites based upon your web browsing activity also use Flash cookies or HTML5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5. We may also include websites beacons in marketing e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and links contained within clicked on. Some of our business partners may set websites beacons and cookies on our website. In addition, third-party social media buttons may log certain information such as your IP address, browser type and language, access time, and referring website addresses, and, if you are logged in to those social media websites, they may also link such collected information with your profile information on that website. We do not control these third-party tracking technologies, if any.
Links to Non-Clearvoter Websites and Third Party Applications
To allow you to interact with other websites on which you may have accounts (such as Facebook and other social media websites) or join communities on such websites, we may provide links or embed third-party applications that allow you to login, post content or join communities from our websites. We may also provide you with general links to non-Clearvoter websites. Your use of these links and applications is subject to the third parties’ privacy policies, and you should become familiar with the third-party websites’ privacy policies before using the links or applications.
Clearvoter is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those other websites.
