Please see below for information about the choices you have about the ways we use your information.
Do we disclose your information to third parties?
Third-Party Service Providers
We may disclose your information for a business purpose to our third-party service providers, such as payment processors, website hosts, and analytics providers, that help us to support the Site and provide our Services to you. Further, our online service providers may implement technologies that allow for the collection of personally identifiable information over time and across websites. We may also disclose aggregated, de-identified information, and analyses and reports derived from such information, to our service providers.
Legal Requirements and Business Transfers
We may disclose your information: (i) if we are required to do so by law, legal process, statute, rule, regulation, or professional standard, or to respond to a subpoena, search warrant, or other government official request; (ii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss; (iii) in connection with an investigation of a complaint, security threat, or suspected or actual illegal activity; (iv) in connection with an internal audit; or (v) in the event that Cestrian is subject to mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, sales of assets, reorganizations, divestitures, dissolutions, bankruptcies, liquidations, or other types of business transactions. In these types of transactions, your information (including personal information) may be shared, sold, or transferred, and it may be used subsequently by a third party.
What choices do you have about your information?
We offer certain choices about how we communicate with you and what information we obtain about you and share with others.
Account. If you have registered an account on the Site, you can update, modify, or delete certain of your account information and preferences after you log into your account using the features and functionalities available there. You may also contact us at the email address below for assistance in updating, modifying, or deleting any of your information.
Email preferences. You may opt out from receiving future promotional or informational emails from us by following the instructions for unsubscribing in the emails we send to you or by contacting us at the email address below. However, you cannot opt out of transactional emails related to your account registration or other transactions with us.
Do Not Track. While we take reasonable steps to protect the privacy of our Site visitors, we cannot promise that the current limitations of our online applications programming will address every browser setting or honor every personal browser preference. In particular, we have not implemented the necessary program changes to honor “Do Not Track” or “DNT” browser signals. As our online applications programming is refined, we will take reasonable steps to honor such requests in the future. Please return to this Policy for further updates on this topic.
Cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change your browser’s settings to disable all or certain cookies if you wish. Please be aware that if you change the preferences on your device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of the features on the Site.
Location of the Site
The Site is hosted and operated in the United States. However, we and our service providers may store information about individuals in the United States, or we may transfer it to, and store it within, other countries.
Visitors from jurisdictions outside the United States visit us at their own choice and risk.
If you are not a resident of the United States, you acknowledge and agree that we may collect and use your personal information outside your home jurisdiction, and that we may store your personal information in the United States or elsewhere. Please note that the level of legal protection provided in the United States from which you may access the Site may not be as stringent as that under privacy standards or the privacy laws of other countries, possibly including your home jurisdiction.
How long do we retain your information?
We will keep your information (including your information in each category of personal information described in the “State Privacy Rights” section below, if applicable) only for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes described in this Policy, unless a longer retention period is permitted or required by law.
Links to other sites
We may provide links to external sites, such as government organizations, distributors, affiliates, and other third parties, as a convenience to you. The inclusion of any link does not imply Cestrian endorsement of the external site company, its website, or its products or services. When you leave the Site to visit one of these linked sites, the only information transferred to the third party is the fact that you came from the Site. This practice allows the third party to monitor its own website traffic, but does not provide them with any information about you. While we try to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for other sites’ content or privacy practices.
You should consult the privacy policies at those third-party sites to determine what information they collect and how your information may be used.
How do we protect your information?
We have implemented reasonable physical, technical, and organizational security standards designed to protect your information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or destruction. We strive to protect your personal information through the use of security technologies and procedures, such as encryption and by limiting access only to authorized individuals. However, no system or procedures are entirely secure or failsafe, and we cannot and do not guarantee the security of your information.
