What data do we collect automatically and why?
When you visit Sncorp.com and you have not otherwise identified yourself (e.g., via registration with an SNC Site), our web server automatically recognizes your domain name, but not your e-mail address. We collect the domain name and monitor general site use and traffic pattern to improve our web site and the products and services we offer. SNC uses web server logs to collect data for metric purposes. Examples of the types of data collected on the logs are IP addresses, referral pages, date and time of Site access, and Site visited. We may use collected data to customize the content and/or layout of our page for each individual visitor.
In some instances, we use tracking scripts or “tracers” that recognize a unique identifier from a cookie placed on your hard drive by another website. These are used by SNC solely to gauge the success of our own advertising. For instance, we may use a tracer to determine whether you visit our employment pages after visiting a resume or career site where SNC placed a banner ad. We do not use tracers to gather information on your use of internet unrelated to SNC. Please note that SNC does not use tracers to identify your personal information, and you remain anonymous unless and until you choose to register.
Do we collect personal information?
In some cases, SNC requests personally identifiable information from you in order to satisfy the underlying transaction or purpose of your accessing the Site. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give to us in any other way. For example, you provide information when you place an order through our online store or one of our third-party sellers; communicate with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise; complete a questionnaire; participate in Discussion Boards; or sign up for e-mail alerts. Examples of personally identifiable information include names, e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, and the like. Please note that we do not consider aggregated information, from which personally identifiable information has been removed, to be private.
Do we share the information it receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries and affiliates that are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.
Third-Party Service Providers: We use other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy subsidiaries or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in event that SNC or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
Consent: Other than as described above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
What about children’s privacy?
SNC asks children under 18 not to transmit any information to the Site. SNC welcomes the parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 to use the Site and provide any information, service, or product gained for the Site for their child. The Learning Center page does not gather identifiable personal information and is operated as a static Site for informational purposes only.
What if data is transmitted internationally?
If you are one of our international guests, we realize that you may want to know whether your personal information will be transferred out of your country of origin. Please be aware that when you register or request a transaction on an SNC Site, your personal data may be transferred to computers in the United States in order to process your request.
Does this apply to all of the SNC Sites?
This applies to all of SNC Sites including, but not limited to the websites of SNC’s subsidiaries and affiliates.
What about external links?
For the convenience of our Site visitors, SNC may provide links to third party web sites that are external to SNC. These web sites are not operated or controlled by SNC, and SNC is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such external web sites.
How do we keep current?
