YOUR PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT TO US
This Policy is adopted by Global Elite Tech4U DBA QuattroV (“QuattroV”), its participating subsidiaries and joint venture partners which are part of the QuattroV service system, and other entities which directly or indirectly are controlled by QuattroV (each, an Affiliate, with QuattroV and its Affiliates being collectively referred to as QuattroV).
The information we collect.
QuattroV collects two types of information about users of this Web site; "Personal Information" (including, but not limited to, your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address) and non-personally identifiable and anonymous "Aggregate Information" (such as information about how many users log onto our Web site). Unless you provide it to us voluntarily or the information is collected via cookies in the manner described in this policy, QuattroV does not collect Personal Information in connection with your use of this Web site.
Please read this policy carefully to learn how you can verify the accuracy of any Personal Information we have concerning you and how you can request that QuattroV delete or update your Personal Information.
In order to accommodate your information request, we ask you to submit your name, title, company affiliation (if any), mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address. At your option, you may also provide us with the best time at which to contact you, the annual revenues of the company with which you are affiliated, the number of employees of the company you are affiliated with, and other relevant comments.
How we use the information we collect.
We will use the information you submit (a) to answer your specific inquiry; (b) at your option, to send you additional materials relating to QuattroV and services that may be of interest to you; (c) in the administration of the Web site; and (d) as otherwise described in this policy.
QuattroV may, from time to time, share your Personal Information with marketing consultants, in which case, the consultants shall be prohibited from using your Personal Information except with respect to assisting QuattroV in the sale of its services and products, and the consultants shall also be required to comply with the terms of this policy.
General - When you visit this site, information about your browser type, operating system, IP address, and the domain name from which you access this site (e.g., yahoo.com) is collected. In addition, we may collect information about your browsing behavior, such as the number of times you have visited the site, the date you visited the site and the amount of time you spent viewing the site. In addition, QuattroV may track your response to QuattroV's advertisements, e-mails and site content, determine your ability to receive HTML-based e-mail messages, learn how many users open an e-mail and allow our service providers to compile aggregated statistics about an e-mail campaign for QuattroV. This information is used solely for our internal purposes in managing the site and improving its functionality, as well as to assist us in better targeting interactive advertising, thereby enhancing customer support and site usability. The collection of such information, whether by us or by data aggregators, is subject to the terms set forth in this policy.
Transparent GIF Files - In addition to our own cookies, we use pixels, or transparent GIF files, on our sites to help manage our online advertising and e-mail marketing. These GIF files are provided by one or more third-party service providers, based on our specification as to where they are used. The files enable our service providers to recognize a unique cookie in your Web browser, which, in turn, enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and e-mails bring you to our website and how you use the site.
Examples of the ways in which QuattroV and our third-party service providers use GIF files include:
To conduct these or other activities, we or our service providers sometimes may link Personal Information you previously provided us (such as, for example, your name and e-mail address) to the information the GIF files provide about how you arrive at, navigate through and leave our sites.
The information we disclose.
Any access to such information will be limited to the purpose for which such information was provided to us or our Service Providers.
Links and third-party websites.
This policy applies only to this Web site. This site includes links to both our Affiliated Web sites and to non-affiliated Web sites, including access to content, products and services of such Affiliated and non-affiliated sites. In some cases, these other sites are made available via "seamless experience" technology, and may appear to be part of our Web site. Although some of the entities controlling these sites are under contract with QuattroV, we urge you to familiarize yourself with the individual privacy and other terms for each linked Web site prior to submitting your personally identifiable information.
How to opt out or request changes.
If you would like to receive a copy of the Personal Information we have about you as submitted to us via this Web site, or if you wish to opt out of receiving marketing related communications from us, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your inquiry has not been satisfactorily addressed, you should first contact QuattroV's Legal Department at PO Box 543 Fort Collins, CO 80522. If you continue to have questions thereafter, then you may file a request for mediation of an online privacy issue with the American Arbitration Association at 335 Madison Avenue, 10th Floor, New York, New York 10017-4605, USA; telephone: 212-716-5800; fax: 212-716-5905 and e-mail: email@example.com. Any mediation shall take place at a location mutually agreed to as being convenient to both parties; if mutual agreement cannot be achieved, then it shall take place at a location convenient to the party which did not initiate the mediation request.
Notification of changes.
QuattroV may, in its sole discretion, update this policy at any time and from time to time, by posting the amended policy on this Web site. If we make material changes to this policy that affect our treatment of your Personal Information, we will provide you with e-mail or postal mail notice and a choice to opt in under the terms of the revised policy. After the changes take effect, all newly collected Personal Information will be subject to the terms of the revised policy and all previously collected Personal Information will be handled in accordance with your response to our opt-in notice (in accordance with the revised policy if you opt in and in accordance with the previous policy if you do not opt in). If no material changes have been made to this policy that affect our treatment of your Personal Information, the amended policy shall be effective upon posting and your access to or use of the site following an update shall be deemed consent to the revised policy. If you have asked to receive marketing and other materials, and you regularly receive electronic communications from us, amendments to this policy may be sent to you via e-mail. We urge you to refer back to this page regularly and especially prior to providing any Personal Information via this Web site. This policy may not be otherwise amended without the written consent of QuattroV. This Policy was last updated March 7, 2011.
