Cookies. We may log information about your general internet usage using "cookies." Cookies are small data files stored on the hard drive of your computer. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. They help us to improve the Services, to provide a more personal and interactive user experience by enabling us to estimate our audience size and usage pattern, to store information about your preferences and customize our Services accordingly and to recognize you when you return to our Services.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with third parties who wish to understand the usage patterns on our Services.

We may disclose certain information about you and/or your use of our Services to third parties without identifying your personally identifiable information for any lawful purpose, including, but not limited to, analyzing how our Services are used, diagnosing technical problems, maintaining security, and personalizing advertisements and promotions. We may de-identify personally identifiable information and share it in a de-identified or aggregated form with third parties, advertisers and/or business partners for any lawful purpose.

We may allow third-party advertising servers to place advertisements within our Services. These third-party advertising servers or advertising networks use technology to send, directly to your browser or device, the advertisements and links that appear within the Services. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content. We may provide such third parties with aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that a certain number of women of a given demographic have clicked on their advertisement over a given time period). We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach their target audience. We may make use of the personal data we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our advertisers’ wishes by displaying their advertisements to that target audience. The ReceptionistHardware.com Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such advertisers. In addition, we may make products and services of third parties available through the Website or within our Services. The ReceptionistHardware.com Privacy Policy does not apply to any websites operated by, and we cannot control the activities of, such third parties.



How We Protect Your Information
We use commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. We will use our commercially reasonable efforts restrict employee access to personally identifiable user information to those who need to know in order to provide the Services to you. We cannot, however, ensure, warrant or guarantee the security of any information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. We make no guarantee that such information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed notwithstanding our safeguards.

To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. However, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer. You hereby agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password.
