Bitwise Solutions, Inc. (BSI) is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors and clients using our websites. We uphold the highest industry standards in online privacy and permission marketing. The term website or websites, whether referred to in the singular or plural, henceforth shall mean one in the same.
(2) Security and Privacy
The Bitwise Solutions, Inc. website uses security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We store the information in a database, or similar storage devices, in a secure environment at our data center.
We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information with anyone except close business partners of Bitwise or other divisions of Bitwise, without your advance notice or unless ordered by a court of law. Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for purposes of contacting you or sending you e-mails based on your requesting information.
(3) Choice Opt-in
Our subscribers are given the opportunity to ‘opt-in’ to having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information, if we are or might use a user’s information for such.
Users of our site will always be notified if their information is being collected by any outside parties outside of our routine analytics and website-traffic monitoring tools. We do this to ensure that our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party, if applicable.
(4) Information Tracked
At times we will use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. We also may track browser types to help us understand our visitors’ needs related to our website design.
There is an optional section of our website where input forms require your name, company, and e-mail address. This form provides the ability to opt-in to receiving future emails of any sort from BSI. If you opt-in to receiving email communications from us, then we may send information to you on our products or services.
Where provided by us and if applicable on our websites, you may review and change your information with us at any time by clicking on the “modify profile” link or similar found at the bottom of emails sent via our system, or by contacting us at: email@example.com.
(5) Web Beacons
In order to determine a user’s ability to receive HTML email in addition to whether or not an email has been opened, BSI includes a “web beacon” in a majority of the HTML email messages we send. A web beacon (actually a small .gif image) is activated when an HTML email is opened via a request for the image on our servers.
This capability helps BSI send email in a format users can read and enables BSI, and our clients that use the functionality, to track the aggregate number of emails opened. The web beacon does not collect any personally identifiable information. Users that do not want to receive email messages with web beacons can choose to receive their emails in text (non-HTML) format.
We also track when a URL has been clicked inside of an email message sent by our system. We use this functionality to track which links were clicked and in what quantity, as well as the aggregate number of links clicked. This click tracking functionality does not collect any personally identifiable information.
Client-side cookies are used to verify the login status of customers using products or services linked directly with our website. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site; however, the user may not be able to access all areas of our site.
(7) Links to Other Websites
Bitwise Solutions, Inc. is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any other websites to which we link, even if that website was developed, published or managed by Bitwise.
