What Information Does ERM System, Inc. Collect?
UDR, Inc. collects two types of data about visitors to the Site ("Visitors"): (a) "Personally Identifiable Information"--that is, information from which an individual can be identified, such as an individual's full name, email address, home address, and telephone number, that individual Visitors provide when using certain of the Site's features; and (b) "Tracking Data", which is automatically collected from every Visitor. Our collection of Personally Identifiable Information and Tracking Data is described in more detail below.
Personally Identifiable Information. You do not have to provide Personally Identifiable Information to use the Site. However, your use of particular services made available through the Site may require us to collect Personally Identifiable Information from you. We collect such Personally Identifiable Information only when you affirmatively provide it to us -- for example, when completing forms online, such as those forms available through our "Contact Us" feature, or when answering surveys. You may be asked to provide your contact information (such as your name, postal address, telephone numbers, and/or email address), and demographic information (such as Zip code) in connection with your use of such services. Remember that no Personally Identifiable Information is actually submitted through the Site until you click the "SUBMIT" or similar button on the form into which you have entered such information.
The Site offers you the opportunity to email web pages from the Site to any email address of your choice. To offer you this feature, we need to ask you for both your email address, and the email address of the person to whom you wish to send the applicable page. We do not store this information or use it for any purpose other than to email the web page to its intended recipient.If you contact us by email through the Site, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and reserve the right to use your email address, and any information you provide in your message, to respond thereto.
Tracking Data. The Site may use cookie and tracking technology depending on the features offered. Cookie and tracking technology are useful for gathering information such as browser type and operating system, tracking the number of visitors to the Site, and understanding how visitors use the Site. Cookies can also help customize the Site for visitors. Personal information cannot be collected via cookies and other tracking technology; however, if you previously provided personally identifiable information, cookies may be tied to such information. Aggregate cookie and tracking information may be shared with third parties.
How Does ERM System, Inc. Use the Information It Collects?
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. We may use your personal information to:
- Provide the services and customer support you request, including confirming emails related to the ermsystem.com services, reminders and transactions.
- Resolve disputes, collect fees and troubleshoot problems.
- Customize your experience and otherwise measure and improve ermsystem.com’s services.
- Deliver targeted marketing, service updates, and promotional offers based on your communication preferences. (If we use your personal information to market to you, you will be able to opt-out of such uses; see Email Preferences and About Cookies below.)
- Compare information for accuracy and verify it with third parties.
- Measure consumer interest in our products and services.
- Enforce our agreements, terms, condition, and policies.
- Provide services as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.
Disclosure of Tracking Data. We use Tracking Data to create aggregate reports on Visitor demographics, Site traffic patterns and user behavior, and may provide these reports to advertisers and other third parties. None of the foregoing information that we may provide to such advertisers or third parties is personally identifiable -- that is, can be connected by such advertisers or third parties to the Personally Identifiable Information supplied to us by individual Visitors.
Use of Email Addresses In Sending Notices Regarding the Site and Our Policies. From time to time, in our sole discretion, we may email information regarding the use of the Site or its services, or changes to our Terms of Service or this Policy, to Visitors who have provided us with their respective email addresses, whether through a specific Site service, an email link, or otherwise. Visitors may not "opt out" of receiving these emails.
Security. We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of that Visitor information which is under our control. Unfortunately, no security system, or system of transmitting data over the Internet, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result of the foregoing, while we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers, the means by which information is transmitted between your computer and ERM System, Inc.'s servers, or any information provided to us or to any third party through or in connection with the Site, and you provide all such information at your own risk.
Correcting Your Information. Visitors may correct or update their Personally Identifiable Information at any time by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Furthermore, upon your request, we will make reasonable efforts to remove your Personally Identifiable Information from our active databases. To make this request, email us at email@example.com. Such information will be corrected or deactivated as soon as reasonably possible. Please note that we may need to retain certain information for record-keeping purposes, and there may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records. We reserve the right, from time to time, to re-contact former Visitors to the Site. Please note: we are not responsible for retracting Personally Identifiable Information from third-party lists or from entities with which we have shared your information pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Policy.
Third Party Sites and Services. Third parties may collect information about you, through cookies (small data files containing information that is written to a user's hard drive by a web server) or other technologies, when you link to their websites from the Site. In addition, your Internet or other service provider(s) may collect information about or submitted by you while you use the Site or other websites on the Internet. You acknowledge that we do not monitor or control the websites or information collection or privacy practices of these or any other third parties, and are not responsible for their practices or the content of their websites or services. We provide links on the Site to third party sites only as a convenience, and the inclusion of a link on our Site does not imply our endorsement of the linked site. You should review the privacy policies of such third parties to understand how they collect and use information.
Banner Advertisements. We do not currently use any outside advertising company ("Advertiser") to serve banner or other advertisements on the Site. However, we reserve the right to use an Advertiser to serve such advertisements in the future. If so, please be advised that such Advertisers may place cookies in your browser's cookie file, which would enable such Advertisers to record which ads your browser has seen, and which Site pages you may have been viewing when the ads were delivered. Such cookies would only be able to be viewed by the applicable Advertiser(s), and not by us.
Changes to This Policy. You will always be able to determine when this Policy was last revised by checking the "Last revised" legend at the top of the Policy. We reserve the right to make changes to this Policy from time to time, which we may provide to you by any reasonable means including, but not limited to, posting the revised draft of the Policy on the Site. Your continued use of the Site following changes to the Policy will signify your acceptance of the changes.
