Since cybersecurityguide.org is all about security, it makes sense that we take our reader’s privacy seriously.
What follows outlines what kinds of information we interact with, what kinds of information might be collected by accessing parts of this site, and how that information might be used.
“Personal Information” is information that identifies you as an individual, such as:
- Mailing address
- Telephone number
- Email address
We do not collect personal information from you. Our sponsors may collect personal information when they are contacted about their services.
When you email us, we reference your email address to service your inquiry and respond as necessary. We will not disclose personal information submitted to us directly via email. Should we need to disclose personal information to a third party in order to resolve an issue, we will request permission from you before doing so.
When you contact a sponsor through the site (for instance a sponsoring college or educational vendor), you submit personal information directly to them, and in such cases, we are not responsible or liable for their use or disclosure of your personal information.
Use of personal information
We may use personal information:
- When you request to connect with vendors who provide information about products and services.
- When you submit your personal information to us you understand and agree to the fact that making an “inquiry” to us and our affiliated entities, gives us permission to contact you, or allows our vendors to contact you, via telephone for a limited period even if the telephone number you submitted appears on any state and/or federal do not call list, because your inquiry serves as an exception to state and/or federal do not call laws.
- To respond to your inquiries
- For our business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, developing new products, enhancing our website, improving our services, identifying usage trends and determining the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR THE ACTS AND/OR OMISSIONS OF THIRD PARTY VENDORS.
