Mapyx obeys a strict code of privacy in regard to our customers' and visitors' information. The following outlines what information we collect, what we do with it, and how you can determine how information about you is used.
Mapyx Software is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Mapyx Software collects information from our users at several different points on our website.
If you wish to download software, make a purchase, participate in a contest, or receive information, we will ask you to register. During registration you will be required to provide your contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the services on our site for which you have expressed interest.
We request information from you on our order form. Here you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch you.
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work or work more efficiently, as well as to provide business and marketing information to the owners of the site.
(for more detailed information on cookies visit www.allaboutcookies.org. This link will take you to another site and will open in a new window. Mapyx is not responsible for the content of other websites)
Three types of cookie may be used during your visit to mapyx.com:
We use IP addresses to analyse trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We do not share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
From time to time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as postal code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
If you choose to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask for the friend's name and email address. Mapyx will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. Mapyx stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Apple's Safari, Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just ?surfing'.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
We do not store credit card numbers.? During the ordering process this data appears as illegible characters and is not stored as clear text. It is not retained or stored on our servers after you have completed a transaction
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
We send all new customers and registered visitors a welcoming email to verify their selections. Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our choice and opt-out below.
We also send our customers product announcement updates. Customers are not able to unsubscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the products they use. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in reference to issues relating to their account via email or direct mail.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If your personally identifiable information changes (such as your postal code), or if you no longer choose to use our products, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove your personal data provided to us. Please contact Mapyx customer service at email@example.com . Please note: if you elect to terminate your relationship, your serial number(s) will be retired and will no longer be considered eligible for product upgrade or valid usage.
Our users are given the direct opportunity to ?opt-in' to participating in our information resources. For example, our order form has an ?opt-in' mechanism that users who buy a product from us can select to receive special information from us. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials may ?opt-out? of receiving these communications by going to our removal page.
