Advantis Communications Inc. (“Advantis”) respects the privacy of users of this World Wide Web site (the “Advantis Site”).
Information Advantis Gathers or Tracks
The information gathered by Advantis falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by users to the Advantis Site when they register or initiate transactions, and (2) tracking information gathered as users navigate through the Advantis Site.
To help make the Advantis Site more responsive to the needs of our users, help you navigate between sections, tailor content to your needs and to measure traffic within the Advantis Site, Advantis’s web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, including your IP address when you visit the Advantis Site. Advantis’s web servers also invoke a standard feature of browser software, called a “cookie,” to assign each user a unique, random number, a sort of user ID, which resides on your computer. The cookie helps give Advantis an idea of which parts of the Advantis Site users are visiting. It does not actually identify you, just the computer that you use to access the Advantis Site – most web browsers allow you to disable or delete them if you prefer.
Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), Advantis will not know who you are, even if Advantis assigns a cookie to your computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is the information you supply. Advantis cookies cannot read unrelated data from your computer. Advantis advertisers and the third parties that may provide products or services through the Advantis Site may also assign their own cookies to your browser, but Advantis does not control their cookies or their processes, and they do not regularly share information they gather with Advantis.
To make use of certain features on the Advantis Site you need to register and to provide certain information as part of the registration process. Advantis may ask, for example, for your name, email address, street address, sex, age, city or town, postal or zip code, and Advantis may sometimes request information on your interest in other topics.
The information you supply may help Advantis to offer you more personalized features, to tailor the Advantis Site to your interests and make it more useful to you. Of course, even if you want to remain completely anonymous, you are still free to take advantage of the wealth of content available on the Advantis Site without registration.
The more Advantis knows about users of the Advantis Site the more value Advantis can potentially offer them. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. However, if you do not supply the information Advantis requires, Advantis may be unable to provide you with services Advantis makes available to other users of the Advantis Site.
Advantis also uses customer contact information from the various registration forms, opt in features and service features to send you information about the Advantis Site. You may opt-out of receiving routine future mailings (see the Choice/Opt-out section below).
