Your privacy is important to CAPS, Inc. ("CAPS"). Our goal is to provide you with a personalized online experience that provides you with the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. This Privacy Policy has been written to describe the conditions under which this web site (the "Site") is being made available to you. The Privacy Policy discusses, among other things, how data obtained during your visit to this Site may be collected and used. We strongly recommend that you read the Privacy Policy carefully.

If you are dissatisfied with the Site, by all means contact us at info@capsinc.com, but otherwise, your only recourse is to disconnect from this Site and refrain from visiting the Site in the future.

The process of maintaining a web site is an evolving one, and CAPS may decide at some point in the future, without advance notice, to modify the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Sites Covered by this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to all CAPS-maintained web sites, domains, information portals, and registries.

 

Children's Privacy

CAPS is committed to protecting the privacy needs of children, and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children's online activities and interests. CAPS does not intentionally collect information from children under the age of 13, and CAPS does not target its Site to children.

 

Links to Non-CAPS Web Sites

CAPS's Site may provide links to third-party web sites for the convenience of our users. If you access those links, you will leave the CAPS Site. CAPS does not control these third-party websites and cannot represent that their policies and practices will be consistent with this Privacy Policy. For example, other web sites may collect or use personal information about you in a manner different from that described in this document. Therefore, you should use other web sites with caution, and you do so at your own risk. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any web site before submitting personal information.

 

TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

 

Non-Personal Information

Non-personal information is data about usage and service operation that is not directly associated with a specific personal identity. CAPS may collect and analyze non-personal information to evaluate how visitors use the CAPS Site.

 

Aggregate Information

CAPS may gather aggregate information, which refers to information your computer automatically provides to us and that cannot be tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include referral data (the web sites you visited just before and just after our site), the pages viewed, time spent at our Site, and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. For example, when you request a page from one of our Sites, our servers log your IP address to create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns and for purposes of system administration.

 

Log Files

Every time you request or download a file from the Site, CAPS may store data about these events and your IP address in a log file. CAPS may use this information to analyze trends, administer the web site, track users' movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use or for other business purposes.

 

Cookies

Our Site may use a feature of your browser to set a "cookie" on your computer. Cookies are small packets of information that a web site's computer stores on your computer. CAPS's Site can then read the cookies whenever you visit our Site. We may use cookies in a number of ways, such as to save your password so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our site, to deliver content specific to your interests and to track the pages you've visited. These cookies allow us to use the information we collect to customize your CAPS experience so that your visit to our Site is as relevant and as valuable to you as possible.

Most browser software can be set up to deal with cookies. You may modify your browser preference to provide you with choices relating to cookies. You have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, certain of the functions and conveniences of our Site may not work properly, and you may be unable to use those CAPS services that require registration in order to participate, or you will have to re-register each time you visit our Site. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the "Help" section of the toolbar. We do not link non-personal information from cookies to personally identifiable information without your permission.

 

Web Beacons

CAPS's Site also may use web beacons to collect non-personal information about your use of our Site and the web sites of selected sponsors and advertisers, your use of special promotions or newsletters, and other activities. The information collected by web beacons allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our Site and selected sponsors' sites; how many people open our emails; and for what purposes these actions are being taken. Our web beacons are not used to track your activity outside of our Site or those of our sponsors. CAPS does not link non-personal information from web beacons to personally identifiable information without your permission.

 

Personal Information

Personal information is information that is associated with your name or personal identity. CAPS uses personal information to better understand your needs and interests and to provide you with better service. On some CAPS web pages, you may be able to request information, provide feedback, or submit information into registries. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include name, address, phone number, e-mail address, user IDs, and passwords.

 

Registration

Information you provide on the CAPS Site may be used to create a member profile. Registration is necessary so that CAPS can assure the quality of its services. The registration form may require you to choose a member name and password and to provide CAPS with information such as your first and last names, email address, and mailing address. By providing us with your personal information, you expressly grant CAPS and all other persons or entities involved in the operations of the Site the right to transmit, monitor, retrieve, store, and use your information in connection with the operation of the Site.

 

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

 

CAPS may use non-personal data that is aggregated for reporting about CAPS's Site usability, performance, and effectiveness. It may be used to improve the experience, usability, and content of the Site.

When accessing the CAPS Site, your personal user information may be tracked in order to ensure authorized access. CAPS may use personal information you provide (such as your e-mail address) from the registration form to send you newsletters and occasional information about our services, to personalize your CAPS experience, or to investigate cases of suspected fraud or abuse.

 

Information Sharing

CAPS does not sell, rent, or lease any individual's personal information or lists of email addresses to anyone for marketing purposes, and we take commercially reasonable steps to maintain the security of this information. However, CAPS reserves the right to supply any such information to third parties in connection with a sale, merger, assignment, joint venture or other transfer or disposition of a portion or all of CAPS's assets or stock (including, without limitation, in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings). We also reserve the right to release personal information to protect our systems or business, when we reasonably believe you to be in violation of our Terms of Use or if we reasonably believe you to have initiated or participated in any illegal activity. In addition, please be aware that in certain circumstances, CAPS may be obligated to release your personal information pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or other orders.

You also should be aware that privacy laws vary from country to country, and your own country's privacy laws and regulations may be different than US law. If you are unsure whether this privacy Policy is in conflict with applicable local rules, you should not submit your information. If you are located within the European Union, you should note that your information will be transferred to the United States, which is deemed by the European Union to have inadequate data protection. Individuals located in countries outside of the US who submit personal information do thereby consent to the general use of such information as provided in this Privacy Policy and to its transfer to and/or storage in the US.

 

Access to and Accuracy of Registered Users' Information

CAPS is committed to keeping the personal information of our registered users accurate. All the information you have submitted to us can be verified and changed. In order to do this, please email us a request at info@capsinc.com. We may provide registered users with online access to their own personal profiles, enabling them to update or delete information at any time. To protect our registered users' privacy and security, we also may take reasonable steps to verify identity, such as a user ID and password, before granting access to modify personal profile data. Certain areas of CAPS's web sites may limit access to specific individuals through the use of passwords or other personal identifiers; a password prompt is your indication that a registered users-only resource is being accessed.

 

Security

CAPS makes every effort to protect personal information by users of the Site, including using firewalls and other security measures on its servers. No server, however, is 100% secure, and you should take this into account when submitting personal or confidential information about yourself on any web site, including this one. CAPS assumes no liability for the interception, alteration, or misuse of the information you provide. You alone are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please use care when use access this Site and provide personal information.

 

Opting Out

From time to time CAPS may email you electronic newsletters, announcements, surveys or other information. If you prefer not to receive any or all of these communications, you may opt out by following the directions provided within the electronic newsletters and announcements.
