Our Privacy Policy explained :

1. What information is collected ?

Any information you enter during the submission of forms or an order on any of AquaMutant’s websites may be collected and stored in our database. In order to better define the type of information that is collected, we have identified and grouped it into three categories:

  1. Personal information;
  2. General non-specific and demographic information; related log; and
  3. Customer proprietary network information
Personal Information

We collect your personal information including information you give us, information collected as a result of your relationship with us. Personal information, as defined by this Privacy Policy, is any information that can be used to identify you personally, such as name, address, telephone number, email address, and other information required to provide a service, deliver a product, or provide customer support.

When you use our Cloud Recording service, we may also collect video clips, photos, and other media files you want to upload in our service.

Our payment processing is hosted by our e-commerce solutions provider. They host our ordering system, and collect your billing information directly from you for the purpose of processing your payment. This company does not use this information for any other purpose.

General Non-Specific and Demographic Information

Any non-personal information either entered by you or recorded as part of the transaction process is considered to be general non-specific and demographic information. This is information that does not contain personal information, and may include experience with AquaMutant’s products such as the type and quantities of products purchased, your web browser and operating system types, the identity of the web page from which your browser entered our website, and any other demographic information such as title, educational and employment background, professional interests, which does not specifically identify any one individual. Such information is typically collected by the use of cookies, web logs, and web beacons and via our software.

We may combine this information with other information we collect about you. We do this to provide our services to you, improve services we offer you, to improve marketing, analytics, or site functionality. Once combined, the resulting data is protected as personal information as described in this Policy.

Log Files

As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, sensor data/log and/or clickstream data.

We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you, to improve marketing, analytics, or site functionality.

Customer Proprietary Network Information

Should we provide telecommunications services to you, we may collect and maintain certain customer proprietary network information (“CPNI”). Your CPNI might include the types of telecommunications services you receive, usage information, user IDs and passwords, billing and transaction information.

2. What do we use the information for ?

In order to provide you with the best online experience possible, we collect both your personal and non-personal information to give us a better understanding of the demographic and geographic profile. The information we collect is reviewed closely to assist us in determining the most popular products of interest to you, update you on new services and benefits, to personalize our website for you and to better design our products and site(s) to suit your needs.

By tracking your IP address through our site, we can better understand the types of products and services and information that are relevant to you, and may from time to time use this information to provide you with information or promotions that match your various geographical and demographic dynamics.

From time to time, we may send surveys to you via email or online through our websites in order to solicit feedback on improvements we should make to our products and services and/or websites. These surveys are completed on a voluntary basis and personal and general information are not required. Refusal to complete the survey or poll will not result in any penalization of the customer(s) standings with our organization. Should you not wish to receive notification of subsequent surveys or polls, you can click the link supplied at the bottom of every promotional email we send you to request that you not receive such notifications in the future.

We may also run contests and/or sweepstakes at different times. By entering the sweepstakes you agree to disclose your personal information for our use in future marketing campaigns. Your consent for our use of your information may be a condition of your participation and eligibility for any such contest or sweepstakes.

In some cases we may combine web usage information related to your access to our websites with personal information. We use the combined information to provide our customers and web visitors with a better online experience by providing customized features, services, and advertising. Once combined, the resulting data is protected as personal information as described in this Policy.

We may occasionally provide you with the ability to create personal profile areas and view protected content. Your personal and/or other information may be required for such purposes.

Should you contact us via email, telephone or written correspondence, we may keep your comments on file for future use in our contact database.

3. How do we share your Information ?

Your personal information will not be sold, traded, or rented to third-parties unless you grant us permission to do so and except as otherwise stated in this Policy.

We may share your personal information within AquaMutant for purposes of data processing or storage. We may also provide personal information to trusted partners who are acting on behalf of or with AquaMutant under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to help AquaMutant communicate with you about offers from AquaMutant and our marketing partners. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share your information.

When we use third parties to assist us in processing your personal information, we require that these parties agree to process such information strictly in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with this Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. AquaMutant does not assume any liability for third parties that have been provided with information as permitted by this Privacy Policy or who have collected information as permitted by this Privacy Policy.

We may respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process by disclosing your personal information and other related information if required by law or regulation. We also may use your personal information to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

We may share personal information and any other additional information available to us in order to investigate, prevent, or take actions regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person including AquaMutant employees, violations of any AquaMutant’s terms of use, or as otherwise required by law or regulation.

We are committed to respecting and protecting your CPNI. Except as may be required by law or authorized by you, we do not sell, trade, or share your CPNI – including your calling records with anyone outside of AquaMutant or with anyone not authorized to represent us to offer our products or services, or to perform functions on our behalf.

Generally, we may use your CPNI in the provision of services you purchase, including billing and collections for those services. Additionally, we are permitted to use or disclose CPNI to offer telecommunications services of the same type that you already purchase from us. We may also use or disclose your CPNI for legal or regulatory reasons such as in response to a court order or subpoena, or to investigate fraud and prevent the unlawful use of our network and services. We may additionally use CPNI to protect other customers.

We will ask you for your opt-in consent to share your personal information with a third party for any purpose not described above or as otherwise required by applicable law or regulation. Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other business reasons, AquaMutant decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize businesses in some countries. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or the receipt of it from sellers. It is AquaMutant’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions. You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
