We at QSound recognize that our customers are concerned about the manner in which we collect personal information when you visit our Web sites, and how we safeguard and use this information. We are committed to collecting only the information that you want us to have, and using this information only in the manner permitted by you and with your consent. This Privacy Statement covers the following Web sites:
What Information We Collect
Personally identifiable information:
We only collect personally identifiable information about you that you agree to provide. Personally identifiable information is any information that can identify you as a specific individual, such as your name, address, phone or fax number or email address.
We collect personally identifiable information when you:
- purchase a product or sign up for a service
- download a free product
- register to become a member of one of our sites
- purchase a product that we resell for one of our partners
- enter a contest or other promotion, or sign up for a newsletter
In addition, when you purchase a product or service we
collect your credit card information in order to process
the purchase. We may also collect certain demographic
information such as age, income and online shopping
preferences, when you register at some of our sites.
Under our referral programs we may ask Web site visitors to provide contact information for friends or family who might be interested in our products or services.
A cookie is a small piece of code that a Web site transfers to an individual’s hard drive. A cookie contains a unique identifier that allows us to better understand your usage of our Web sites and allows you to move about the site without having to re-enter registration information that you have already provided. Cookies are not linked to any personally identifiable information.
If you simply want to browse, you do not have to accept cookies from any of our sites. However, if you wish to log in as a member, or to purchase products or services, you must accept cookies. You can set your browser to not accept cookies. See you browser’s documentation for information on disabling cookies.
We collect certain technical information from your computer each time you request a page during a visit to our Web sites. This information is provided by your computer’s Web browser and may include your IP address, operating system, Web browser software, screen resolution and referrer Web site. This information, which is stored in log files, is not linked to personally identifiable information gathered elsewhere on our sites.
How We Use Your Information
Personally identifiable information:
When you register to become a member of a Web site, we use the information you provide to create your member account. When you download or purchase a product or service we use the information you provide to complete the download or purchase, and to bill your credit card. If you choose to receive communications from us about promotions and products, we use your email address to send you email communications and your address information to send you direct mail. If you sign-up for a contest or other promotion, we use your information to enter your name as a contest participant. We use your phone or fax number, or your email address or mailing address, when we respond to your questions, contact you for feedback or to give you information on our products or services, or contact you about billing, customer support or other administrative matters. We may use your demographic information for targeted promotion and advertising.
What choices you have about how your personally identifiable information is used
When you register to become a member of a Web site, or purchase or download one of our products or services, we give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving communications from us about promotions and products. Each email or other communication that we send to you includes instructions on how to unsubscribe from receiving further communications. You may also withdraw your consent to use your personal information at any time (subject to legal or contractual requirements); however, we will then be unable to offer you certain services such as product support and access to member-only areas.
How We Share Your Personally Identifiable Information
We will not sell your personally identifiable information,
except in connection with a sale of our business (see Sale
of Business below).
With service providers and partners:
We may employ other companies or individuals to perform functions on our behalf, for example filling orders or providing other services. These companies may use personally identifiable information to perform their functions, but not for any other purpose.
Sale of Business:
We may transfer your personally identifiable information to a third party in connection with a sale, merger or other disposition (whether of assets, stock or otherwise) of our business.
We may be required to disclose certain personally identifiable information from time to time to comply with a court order, subpoena, search warrant or other legal process. We may disclose this information to governmental and regulatory authorities without legal process in the event of a national emergency. We may reveal your identity if we believe that you are violating any rights or property of ourselves or others.
How long we keep your information:
We will destroy your personally identifiable information once we no longer use it for the purpose for which it was collected.
