Aartek Systems is committed to bringing you information that’s tailored to your individual needs and, at the same time, to protecting your privacy. The following is a summary of the various ways we treat the information you provide us while using Aartek Systems services.Aartek Systems does not collect personally identifying information except with your specific knowledge and consent. In certain cases, client web sites may be linked to from our site as part of our portfolio. These links enhance the visibility of the client sites and improve their rankings in the search engines. However, client sites will be removed from our portfolio upon request. We do not share any private information, such as private email addresses that are not readily available on client web sites, with any outside party, so there’s no need for you to “opt out” to get off mailing lists.
Sometimes you will provide us with data that doesn’t reveal your personal identity – what type of products or services you are seeking, for example. We use this sort of information for editorial purposes, and occasionally for other internal purposes (maybe we’ll offer you special sale items based on your interests, for example) but we don’t connect it to any name, address or other identifying information. This way we can give you customized information without compromising your privacy.
In a few cases – if you e-mail a question or some feedback to us, for example – we may request your name, e-mail address or other information so that we can, for example, e-mail you with a personal reply. If you choose to supply this information we’ll use it only for the specific purpose for which you supply it – unless we tell you otherwise at the time of collection, in which case you’ll have an option to forbid other uses by us.
We will never share any of your personally identifying data with any other party without your explicit permission, nor use it for unapproved commercial purposes, except as stated above.
We may offer to send you information or updates from Aartek Systems via e-mail or otherwise; obviously, signing up will put you on a specific mailing list. We will not put you on any other mailing lists, from us or anyone else, without your permission.
Please note that your postings to our forums, chat and any other public discussion areas are not private. You should be aware that any information you post in our public areas may be seen, collected and used by others, and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties. Alas, we can’t control this; you post at your own risk.
KIDS: Be sure to ask your parents for permission before you send any information about yourself – like your name, address or e-mail address – over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. Never buy anything online without permission. Oh, and tell your parents to read this page, too!
PARENTS: We encourage you to get involved with your kids’ online usage so you can be aware of what they’re doing. If Aartek Systems knowingly collects personally identifying data from children, we use it for internal purposes only – we don’t post it, publish it or provide it to any third parties. Of course, we treat your personally identifying data the same way.
As mentioned above, for certain purposes we may use anonymous, aggregated data about our users. Kids’ information may be included in this – but anonymously.
If your kids disclose information about themselves in our public discussion areas, they may get unsolicited messages from other parties. Accordingly, you should tell them not to do so.
If you’re worried about your kids’ activities or their privacy on Aartek Systems, we encourage you to e-mail us.
