These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the site(s) or services easier to use by performing research and analysis aimed at improving our services.

Sharing of Your Personal Information

Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal information outside of SoftSource Consulting and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your consent.

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.

Security of Your Personal Information

SoftSource Consulting is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Use of Cookies

SoftSource Consulting Web site(s) do not use “cookies.” A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.

Controlling “Spam” or Unsolicited E-mail

SoftSource Consulting is concerned about controlling unsolicited commercial e-mail, or “spam.” SoftSource Consulting will not sell, lease or rent its e-mail subscriber lists to third parties. While SoftSource Consulting continues to actively review new technology, there is no currently available technology that will totally prevent the sending and receiving of unsolicited e-mail. Being cautious about the sharing of your e-mail address while online will help reduce the amount of unsolicited e-mail you receive.

We will occasionally update this privacy statement to reflect changes in our services and customer feedback. When we post changes to this Statement, we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of this statement. If there are material changes to this statement or in how SoftSource Consulting will use your personal information, we will notify you by prominently posting a notice of such changes prior to implementing the change. We encourage you to periodically review this statement to be informed of how SoftSource Consulting is protecting your information.
