Your privacy is our concern.
Why we collect information
We collect information because it helps us to deliver the level of customer service that our customers expect. It enables us to provide convenient access to our products and services and to focus on categories of greatest interest to already existing customers. In addition, information helps us to keep our customers posted on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers, and events that they may like to hear about.
What information do we collect and how do we use it
There are a number of situations in which your information may help us to provide you with better products and service. For example:
We may ask for your information when you are discussing a service issue on the phone with Ithicos Support, downloading a software update, participating in an online survey, registering your products, or purchasing a product.
We also collect information for market research purposes — such as your occupation and where you use Ithicos Solutions products— to gain a better understanding of our customers.
We collect information regarding customer activities on our website such as page views, entrance pages, and most visited pages. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to customers and to understand which parts of our websites, products, and services are of most interest to them.
We may use personal information to provide products that you have requested as well as for auditing, research, and analysis to improve Ithicos Solutions' products.
Publicly displayed information is public
If you use a bulletin board or chat room on an Ithicos Solutions website you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. Ithicos Solutions is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums. For example, if you choose to make information, which was previously non-public, available by enabling certain user features, Ithicos Solutions will collect that information from your interaction and the information will become publicly available.
When we disclose your information
Ithicos Solutions takes your privacy seriously. Ithicos Solutions does not sell or rent your contact information to other marketers.
Within the Ithicos Solutions Group
With our service providers, vendors, and strategic partners
There are also times when it may be advantageous for Ithicos Solutions to make certain information about you available to companies that Ithicos Solutions has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for Ithicos Solutions to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, extend credit, fulfill customer orders, deliver products to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are also obligated to protect your information in accordance with Ithicos Solutions' policies, except if we inform you otherwise at the time of collection. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to purchase products, have products delivered to you, receive customer service, provide us feedback to improve our products and services, or access certain services, offers, and content on the Ithicos Solutions website. We retain the right to disclose non-personally identifying demographic and summary information of the type used for statistical analysis by the Department of Labor and industry organizations. Such information will not intentionally expose any of our customers to undesired solicitations by third-party marketers without their permission.

Ithicos Solutions takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

Cookies and other technologies

Cookies can be disabled, at the user's discretion, within most modern web browsers. Please see your browser's help feature for instructions on how to do this. Please note that certain features of the Ithicos Solutions website will not be available once cookies are disabled.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Ithicos Solutions will not use the information collected to market directly to that person.
In some of our email messages we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Ithicos Solutions website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in any email that you receive from us. Alternatively, some modern web browsers allow for html features to be disabled as a preference option.
In addition we may use pixel tags — tiny graphic images — to tell us what parts of our website customers have visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our site. Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read. And they tell us whether emails have been opened to ensure that we’re sending only messages that are of interest to our customers.
