Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us

Exambase (“exambase,” "exambase.org," “us,” “we” and “our”) respects your privacy, and we assure you that we take the protection of your personal information very seriously. We therefore provide this Privacy Policy to disclose our information collection, utilization, and sharing practices for this Site. This Privacy Policy applies to any website or mobile application that includes, displays, attaches, references, or links to this Privacy Policy (each the “Site”). If you do not agree to these terms, do not access the exambase Site or other related services. The information we receive from you depends on what you do when you visit this Site. Except as described in this policy, we do not sell, rent, share or disclose your personally identifiable information to or with any other organizations.

TYPE AND USES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU:

Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) – Generally, you can visit our Site without revealing any personal information about yourself. At times, though, we or vendors operating on our behalf may need information about you, such as when you purchase goods or services from us or request information from us. Unless otherwise indicated, the information we request is optional, but you may not be able to use parts of our Site without providing such information. We may gather certain personal information from you to help us better serve you through transactions and promotions, as well as to respond to inquiries, requests for information, and opportunities. We only collect personally identifiable information when you choose to reveal it to us.

Our Site collects information from our web forms that may be displayed on our Site or in conjunction with checkouts for purchases of goods, including without limitation when you request or submit information or purchase goods. At these places, we may ask you to give us contact information (like name, company name, title, email address, phone number, credit card or other payment information and address, along with answers to questions topical to the web form and an ability to state additional information). Information related to your purchase of goods may be collected by third party vendors operating for the benefit of exambase by processing your transactional payment information.

When you email a question to one of our team members, we receive your email address and any other information you choose to include in your email. If you use other web forms to submit inquiries or sign up for mailing lists or other information, we will collect the information you submit. If we receive similar questions from other users, we may post the most frequently asked questions on our site under a “Q & A” or similar section. The question we post may be similar to, or the same as, the question you submitted, but we will not identify you (or anyone else) as the questioner.

We use the information you provide to process your requests and otherwise provide the products and services you request, as well as to provide support for those products and services. We may use your PII to send you information and advertising about our organization and its products and services including without limitation to provide you with products and services you have expressed interest in, requested, and/or purchased. We reserve the right, but not the obligation, to contact you regarding changes to this Privacy Policy and other matters relevant to the Site.

Cookies may save your preferences while you are at our Site, such as allowing for persistent login on pages that require logging in, and we may use them to provide you with tailored information and tracking as you use our Site. Cookies help us, among other things, to determine which areas of our Site are popular by tracking hits to those areas, which may in turn allow us or our third party providers to provide you with targeted information or advertising regarding our products and services.

The rejection or limitation of cookies by your browser may limit your ability to use the Site.

Web Beacons - We may employ Web beacons (also called single-pixel gifs), which are customized links or similar technologies, on the Site and when sending you messages, newsletters, or promotional emails or in using third party service providers. Web beacons allow us to (a) determine whether you have opened, or acted upon, a promotional email and which links you have clicked on in order to deliver to you more focused communications and other content, (b) allow us to count the number of users who have visited certain webpages and effectively deliver services, and (c) enable us to compile aggregated statistics and determine the efficacy of promotions by using Web beacons from third parties.

We may share the information we collect through our Site with these service providers so that they can perform services for us in relation to the Site and our business. For example, we may share your information with our advertising and email vendors so that they can provide services to us such as emailing you about our products and services and the products.

In addition to the situations described above, we may use and disclose visitor information in special instances when we have reason to believe disclosing this information is necessary to investigate, identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with our rights or property, other Site visitors, or anyone else. We may disclose visitor information when subpoenaed, for government investigations, and when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it.
