VI. Does STATHERO Use Cookies, Logs, Identifiers and Pixel Tags?

  1. Cookies are small text files that a web site can write to your computer. STATHERO, like many other web sites, may use cookies to identify you, customize web page content and allow you to log in once to our web site, and then search or post, without having to log in again. If you reached our web site by clicking on a link or advertisement on another web site, then we also log that information. This helps us to maximize our Internet exposure and to understand the interests of our Customers. Cookies cannot be used to read data contained on your hard drive or device, and cannot retrieve information from any other cookies created by other web sites.
  2. Cookies are also used by our Merchants to identify you as a Customer of STATHERO.
  3. To maintain privacy, Customer can disable their browser’s ability to accept cookies.Although Customer may do so, Customer may find that the browser reacts strangely when visiting our (and others’) web site(s). Most browsers allow you to disable and/or delete cookies. For example:
    1. in Internet Explorer (version 9), you can block cookies using the cookie handling override settings, available by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy” and then “Advanced”;
    2. in Firefox (version 16) you can block all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Options”,”Privacy”, selecting “Use custom settings for history” from the drop-down menu and un-ticking “Accept cookies from sites”; and
    3. In Chrome (version 23), you can block all cookies by accessing the “Customize and control” menu, and clicking “Settings,” “Show advanced settings” and “Content settings”, and then selecting “Block sites from setting any data” under the “Cookies” heading.

    You can also delete cookies already stored on your computer. For example:

    1. in Internet Explorer (version 9), you must manually delete cookie files (instructions for doing so are at https://support.microsoft.com/kb/278835);
    2. in Firefox (version 16), you can delete cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Options”,”Privacy” and then “Show Cookies”, and then clicking “Remove All Cookies”; and
    3. in Firefox (version 16), you can delete cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Options”,”Privacy” and then “Show Cookies”, and then clicking “Remove All Cookies”; and

    Again, doing this may have a negative impact on the usability of many web sites.

  4. Our Merchants may use cookies on their web site or an external web site. We have no access to, or control over these cookies, hence, STATHERO will not be responsible for their use or misuse.
  5. This Policy only covers the use of cookies by STATHERO. It does not cover the use of cookies by any other third-party.
  6. Like many other web sites, www.STATHERO.com makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages and number of clicks that we use to analyze trends, administer our web site(s), track Customer’s movement around our web site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
  7. STATHERO uses device identifier technologies, which may include device level cookies or other technologies used to identify a device on future visits. This technology (hereafter “identifier”) may be in the form of a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser, and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Identifiers can be used by web servers to identity and track Customers as they navigate different pages on a website and identify Customers returning to a website.
  8. Device identifiers may be either “persistent” or “session” identifiers. A persistent identifier consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the Customer before the expiry date). A session identifier, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the session, when the web browser is closed. This Service uses session identifiers and persistent identifiers, as well as identifiers derived from third party providers and analytics identifiers.
  9. When a Customer uses our Service, Customer may also be sent third party identifiers that can be utilized by service providers, so that they may obtain from Customer’s device, the ability to track Customer’s device across multiple services; build a profile of Customer activity; and target Services which may be used to determine Customer location, habits, or other personal data. In addition, tracking analytics are used to analyze the use of our Service. This system generates statistical and other information about the Customer, by means of identifiers, which are stored on Customer’s device. The information generated, relating to this Service, is used to create reports about Customer’s use of the Service. The system will store this information.
  10. Device identifiers do not contain any information that personally identifies the Customer, however, personal information that is stored about Customer may be linked to the information stored in, and obtained from, cookies.
  11. Merchants, and/or non-affiliated third-parties, may also use so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar technology (collectively, “Pixel Tags”), in connection with some web site pages and HTML-formatted e-mail messages to compile aggregate statistics about web site usage and response rates, among other things. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1×1), that is ordinarily not visible to web site visitors, and may be associated with Cookies on the visitors’ hard drives. Pixel Tags allow STATHERO to count the number of Customers who have visited certain pages of the web site, to deliver branded services, to provide online advertising, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted e-mail messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether, and when, the e-mail has been opened.

VII. Is My Information Private With STATHERO’s Affiliates?

A. The STATHERO web site(s) may contain links to various third-party web sites and the external web sites of our Affiliates and/or third-party partners. Each of these web sites may have a Privacy Policy that differs from that of STATHERO. This Policy does not cover the Privacy Policies of other web sites. We urge you to check the Privacy Policies of each web site that you may visit or interact with.

B. The only information that may be shared between STATHERO and one of our partner web sites is that which we tell you about, either through these Policies or through our Terms and Conditions of Use.

VIII. What About Data Security?

  1. STATHERO will use reasonable efforts to keep Customer’s personal information accurate and safe for the Identified purposes. Customers are responsible for informing STATHERO about changes to their personal information. STATHERO will update personal information, when necessary, to keep it accurate, or else provide Customers with the facility to make such updates (Such as Account access).
  2. STATHERO has instituted appropriate security measures that protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from Customers. STATHERO requires that our Merchants ensure the security of the data that Customers provide to them, however, in the event of a breach of their security measures, Customer agrees that STATHERO will not be liable for any loss of data or other damages to Customer or its business or organization.
  3. STATHERO limits access to personal information about Customers to employees for whom we reasonably believe it is necessary, in order to provide our Services to Customer.
  4. STATHERO has physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with international regulations, to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from Customer.

STATHERO has security measures and tools, such as firewalls, in place, to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If Customer has reason to believe that its interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if Customer feels that the security of any account it has with us has been compromised), please notify us of the problem as soon as possible by sending an email to support@STATHERO.com or calling us at 832-320-1999.

May I See the Information STATHERO Collects About Me?

STATHERO will afford Customer a reasonable opportunity to review the personal information in Customer’s file, in an understandable format, either by direct accessor upon request to the Privacy Officer, made by Customer, after providing sufficient identification.

IX.

  1. If STATHERO is not able to provide access to some aspect of a Customer’s personal information, we will provide reasons for denying access such as: that by doing so would likely reveal personal information about a third party, or that it is confidential commercial information or attorney-client privileged communications, or that the information relates to a breach of an agreement or a contravention of law, or that its disclosure could reasonably be expected to threaten the life or security of another individual.
  2. Customers have the right to request that inaccurate or incomplete information be amended, as appropriate, and STATHERO will promptly correct such personal information or provide the means for Customer to do so directly. If Customer has a question relating to its collected information, Customer can send an email to support@STATHERO.com or contact us at 832-320-1999.

X. Can I Opt-out?

XI.

  1. STATHERO gives you the option to remove your personally identifiable information from our list of active Users.
  2. You may also choose to opt-out of certain communications from STATHERO.
  3. All requests for unsubscribing from, or opting out of, further communications should be made by sending an email to Customer Support at support@STATHERO.com.
  4. STATHERO is not responsible for removing your personally identifiable information

XV. Spy ware

The State of California (USA) has passed legislation requiring certain specific disclosures be made available to California residents who use the Internet and provide information that may be used for marketing purposes. That legislation requires any business that discloses a Customer’s personal information (as defined by the Act) to any third-party, for direct marketing purposes, to provide the Customer a method for obtaining the names, addresses and certain other specified details of anyone who might have received that personal information. If you are a California resident you may request this information from STATHERO, by writing to:

STATHERO ADDRESS

Attn: California Privacy Rights or by sending an e-mail, with California Privacy Rights in the Subject line, to support@STATHERO.com. STATHERO is not obligated to respond to more than one (1) such request from Customer, per calendar year.

XVII. Section Titles

The section titles used in these Policies are purely for convenience and carry with them no legal or contractual effect.
