Information Gathered; Parties Collecting Information

IP Addresses

We use the information from users´IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our Web sites and that portion of our partners´ Web sites that we control. Your IP address is used to track you anonymously and to gather broad aggregate demographic information. This information is not itself personally identifiable and is never linked to anything that would make such information personally identifiable.

Requested Demographic Information

When you use or register for certain Azorean services, whether offered on one of Azorean own Web sites or on the Web site of one of Azorean partners or customers, you may be asked to provide certain information that is generally essential to the provision of those Azorean services. Such information may consist of some or all of the following: name, e-mail address, street address, or zip code. Other than as necessary to contact you as part of the Azorean service in question (for example, to send you an e-mail notification that you have requested), this personally identifiable information is not retained other than in the form of customary web server logs which are used to monitor and report on aggregate Internet traffic patterns. The personally identifiable information collected and retained in this manner is not used by Azorean nor is it shared with any third party.

Cookies

To enhance your Web experience, we use identifiers, often referred to as “cookies,” to collect anonymous preference and user information. The information derived from the use of cookies does not include and is never merged with personally identifiable information (such as name, street address or email address) or any information that is generally considered sensitive or controversial or would compromise your privacy.

Partner sites

Azorean services are often offered through our partners´ and customers´ Web sites and this frequently requires that our partners and customers themselves request and pass along the information required to provide Azorean services. Azorean privacy practices will apply to any such information passed to Azorean by its partners and customers. Any such information will also be subject to the privacy policies of our partners and customers. Azorean is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of our partners or customers or their Web sites. Azorean will not enter into a partnership with any partner or site that does not offer secure data transmission of the information, which is to be passed on to Azorean.

How the Information is Used

The primary purpose for gathering the information described in this privacy statement is to provide you with the best possible services. The information Azorean collects is used for the following purposes:

To personalize our services to individual users;
To measure the number of discrete and repeat users of our services;
To track patterns in the use of Azorean services;
To target advertisements based on users´ preferences and geographic location.

Parties with whom Azorean shares the information

Azorean does not share personally identifiable information with any third parties without your express permission, with the sole exception of data verification and supplementation by a third party under a strict obligation of confidentiality. For example, Azorean might ask a third party to determine if our data contains any errors or mistakes. Any such third party service provider would be bound by a confidentiality agreement not to use or reveal any data provided by Azorean.

Azorean may from time to time provide third parties aggregate data about Azorean´ end users or other non-personally identifiable information (such as a user´s zip code) in order to describe our services and for other lawful purposes. Azorean does not share any personally identifiable information with such third parties. Moreover, consumers can opt-out from Azorean´ collection of such data at any time.

Special Circumstances

We do not share the information we collect on our Web site or our partners´ sites with third parties without your express permission. However, Azorean may disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating Azorean´ Terms of Use or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Azorean´ rights or property, other Azorean users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Azorean may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires us to do so and/or when, for administrative and other purposes, we deem it necessary to do so in order to maintain, service, and/or improve our services.

PROTECTING INFORMATION

Azorean goes to great lengths to ensure that no unauthorized parties can access information collected during the provision of our services. While Azorean employs industry-leading security measures to protect our data, we cannot absolutely guarantee the security of any data transmission over the Internet, the telephone lines, or any wireless network.

Azorean cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information during the transmission process, and, accordingly, your transmission of such information is done at your own risk.
Azorean will only partner with those entities that we believe employ sufficient security measures in the transmission of data to Azorean, but your information will be subject to those partners´ security practices. Azorean is in no manner responsible or liable for our partners´ security practices.
