We are strongly committed to letting you know how we will collect and use your personal information. The policies below are applicable to data and information collected through the Industrial Software Solutions websites; Industrial Software Solutions service and tools, all email newsletters published or distributed by Industrial Software Solutions; all apps published by Industrial Software Solutions; and all other interactive features, services, and communications provided by Industrial Software Solutions (“Service”), however accessed and/or used, that are operated by us, made available by us, or produced and maintained by Industrial Software Solutions, Inc. (collectively “Industrial Software Solutions” or “we”, “us”, or “our”). We have established this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to let you know the kinds of personal information we may gather during your use of this Service, why we gather your information, what we use your personal information for, when we might disclose your personal information, and how you can manage your personal information.

Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy apply only to information gathered online through our Service. It does not apply to information that you may submit to us offline or by companies or organizations to which we may link or who may link to us.

By using our Service, you are accepting the practices described in our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Service. We reserve the right to modify or amend the terms of our Privacy Policy from time to time without notice. Your continued use of our Service following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes. If we intend to apply the modifications or amendments to this Privacy Policy retroactively or to personal information already in our possession, we will provide you with notice of the modifications or amendments.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or don’t see your concerns addressed here, you should contact us by email at [email protected].

What Information About Me Is Collected and Stored?

We collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Service, personal information and non-personal information. Personal information is information that you may supply to us, as described more fully below, i.e., when you place an order, complete a survey, register on the Service, upload content, participate in a community, or provide your e-mail address. Personal information is any information that can individually identify you and includes, among other things, your name, e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, credit card, billing and contact information. Non-personal information includes information that does not personally identify you, but it may include tracking and usage information about your location, demographics, use of the Service and the Internet.

Personal Information

As a general matter, you can browse the Service without submitting your personal information to us. However, there are a number of circumstances in which you may supply us with your personal information. The following lists the most common ways in which we may collect your personal information.

In addition, when you interact with the Service, we may collect certain information that does not identify you individually and our servers may automatically keep an activity log of your use of our Service (“Non-Personal Information”).

  • Non-identifiable demographic data such as age, gender, and five digit zip code as part of collecting personal information.

  • Other information regarding your use of the Service.

Collection of Your Source IP Address/Location Information

We will collect and store location information about you on the Service and associated with your account that you volunteer on the Service or enable through the Service or your device.

We are concerned about ensuring the security of your Personal Information. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your device to our servers. Personal Information collected by our Service are stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose your Personal Information to you. Please understand, however, that while we try our best to safeguard your Personal Information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Governing Law

Changes to This Policy

As our Service continues to develop, we may add new services and features to our Service. In the event that these additions affect our Privacy Policy, this document will be updated appropriately.
