Our web server automatically recognizes and stores the visitor's IP address (the Internet address of visitor's computer) of each visitor browsing our website to determine which areas of our site are being visited and the amount of time each visitor has spent there. This information helps us to understand visitors' traffic patterns through our website so that we can enhance the overall usability of our website. Your computer provides this information automatically each time you log on, unless you have activated blocking technology available in some browsers. While we do not generally require that you provide us with individually identifiable information in order to visit and use our website, at times we may ask you to provide us with personal information such as your E-mail address, name, mailing address, telephone number, credit card number, demographic information, or persistent identifier (such as user name and password), which is associated with individually identifiable information to enable you to make a purchase, register a product, correspond with Milestone, enter a sweepstakes, participate in an online survey, subscribe to a mailing list or newsletter, or register for special purchase discounts. If you choose not to provide an identifier for those activities, you may not be able to participate in them.
The information you provide will be kept confidential and used to support your customer relationship with Milestone. Among other things, Milestone wants to use this data to accommodate your experience on our website. Unless you instruct us otherwise, we will send you information about our various product upgrades, special offers, and other new products and services from Milestone that we feel may be of interest to you. Only Milestone (or agents working on behalf of Milestone and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct mailings. If you do not want to receive such mailings, see the Opt-Out procedures below.
Milestone will not share your personal information with any outside organization for its use in marketing or solicitation without your consent. Your information may be shared with agents, contractors or distributors of Milestone for the purposes of selling our products or performing our services. For instance, if Milestone needs to ship something to you, they may share your name and address with a shipping company. Milestone provides third party agents with the minimum amount of information needed to complete the requested service or transaction.
Milestone protects the personal information you share with it. At Milestone, access to your personal information is limited to persons who need the information for completion of a requested service or transaction. In addition, it is Milestone's policy to maintain the integrity of any personal information within its possession. You can make changes to your personal information by e-mailing your changes to email@example.com.
Milestone will NOT knowingly collect online contact information from children under the age of 13. If Milestone learns that we have personal information on a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information from our systems.
Other sites which are linked to or from our website (including the websites of affiliates) may have different policies. Since we do not control these websites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on those sites for details.
You may, at any moment, opt-out of our use of your personal information. To do so, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The staff at Milestone will remove your personal information from our database(s) as soon as reasonably possible.
