Privacy Policy

Effective Date: August 1, 2011

Our Commitment To Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. This Online Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains how Tradiverse International Limited (“Tradiverse,” “we,” “us,” and “our”) protects your privacy when you visit this website. This Privacy Policy describes what types of information we gather and track when you use our website, how this information is used and with whom it is shared.

Scope of This Privacy Policy
This Privacy Policy covers the “personal information” we collect through our website. “Personal information” is information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us. Examples of personal information include your name, address, email address, credit card information, job applications, and the information you provide when you use one of our website to create an account or a personal profile.

Your Consent
Please take a few minutes to review this Privacy Policy. By accessing or using this Website, you are consenting to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

IF YOU DO NOT CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AS SET FORTH IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE EXIT AND DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE.

Changes to This Privacy Policy
As we add new features and functionality to our website, we may need to update or revise this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to do so, at any time and without prior notice, by posting the revised version on our website. These changes will be effective as of the date we post the revised version on our website. They will apply only to the personal information we collect after we have posted the revised version. Your use of one of our website following any such change constitutes your consent to the terms of the revised Privacy Policy. For this reason, it is important to review this Privacy Policy regularly.

If we modify this Privacy Policy, we will provide a new effective date at the top of this Privacy Policy notice, so that you can see at a glance whether our Privacy Policy has changed since your last visit. You may access the current version of this Privacy Policy at any time by clicking on the link marked “Privacy Policy” at the bottom of each page of our website.

Privacy Notices
This Privacy Policy may be supplemented or amended from time to time by “Privacy Notices” posted on our website. Generally, Privacy Notices provide details about the personal information we collect on particular pages or particular areas of a website, why we need that information, and choices you may have about the ways we use that information.

Agreements Governing Your Use of Special Features and Password-Protected Areas
Our website may include special features, such as licensed content or an online store, or password protected areas, such as a discussion forum, a chat room, a careers area, or a customer-only area.

When you sign up to use a special feature or password-protected area, you may be asked to agree to special terms governing your use of the special feature or password-protected area. In such cases, you will be asked to expressly consent to the special terms, for example, by checking a box or clicking on a button marked “I agree.” This type of agreement is known as a “click-through” agreement. If any of the terms of the click-through agreement are different than the terms of this Privacy Policy, the terms of the click-through agreement will supplement or amend this Privacy Policy, but only with respect to the matters governed by the “click-through agreement.”

What Personal Information Do We Collect Through Our Website?
Information You Provide. We collect the personal information you knowingly provide (using your mouse and keyboard) when you use our website. The information we collect depends on how you use our website. For example, if you sign up to receive email communications from us, we collect your email address and any related information you provide. If you communicate with us using the “Contact Us” feature, we collect the information you provide when you complete the “Contact Us” form.

Supplemental Information. From time to time, we may supplement the information you give us with information from other sources, such as information validating your address, information based on your zip code, or information about your business. We may also supplement the information you give us with information we collect from you through other channels. For example, if you are a Tradiverse customer, we may supplement the information you provide online with information you provide in your other business dealings with Tradiverse.

Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser. We collect information that is sent to us automatically by your Web browser. This information typically includes your IP address, the identity of your Internet Service Provider, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. An “IP address” is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. It is used to identify your computer’s “location” in cyberspace, so that the information you request can be delivered to you. If you use a dial-up connection or a connection that assigns dynamic IP addresses, your computer will be assigned a new IP Address each time you connect to the Internet. If, however, your computer is permanently connected to the Internet using a static IP address, the IP address assigned to your computer will generally be the same each time you use your computer. Although it does not identify you by name, we treat your IP address as your personal information.

Generally, we do not link the information provided by your browser to information that identifies you by name. You should know, however, that when you respond to an electronic communication you receive from us, for example, by opening an email, downloading images or clicking on a link in an electronic newsletter, your browser tells us that you (or someone using your email address) has done so. We use this information to improve our marketing efforts. In addition, we review our server logs – which contain visitors’ IP addresses — for security and fraud prevention purposes. If criminal activity is suspected, we may share our server logs and the personal information we have collected through this website with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.

Cookies and Similar Technologies. We use “cookies” and other web technologies in a number of ways. For example, we may use these technologies:

  • to collect information about the ways visitors use our website – which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page;
  • to support the features and functionality of our website – for example, to save you the trouble of reentering information already in our database or to prompt the settings you established on previous visits to our website;
  • and to personalize your experience when you use our website.

Generally, the information we collect using these web technologies does not identify you personally. If, however, you have created a user identity, for example, by signing up to use a password-protected area on one of our website, we may link the information we collect using web technologies to other information that identifies you personally.

If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. You may also delete our cookies as soon as you leave a website. Although you are not required to accept our cookies when you visit our website, if you set your browser to reject cookies, you will not be able to use all of the features and functionality of our website.

In some cases, however, we may limit or deny your request if the law permits or requires us to do so or if we are unable to verify your identify.

Security
Although we take commercially reasonable measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity and security of your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information. For this reason we urge users to take every precaution to protect their personal information while using the Internet.

SSL Protection. When you login to use password-protected areas of our website, we require that a secure connection between your computer and our server be established. We use an encryption technology called Secure Socket Layers (SSL). A secure connection is maintained until you leave the secure area of the Website. Although we use SSL encryption to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information as it travels over the Internet, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet and we cannot guarantee the safety of transmitting personal information over the Internet.

Password Protection. Certain areas of our website are password protected. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your passwords. We have the right to assume that anyone accessing one of our website using a password assigned to you has the right to do so. You will be solely responsible for the activities of anyone accessing our website using a password assigned to you, even if the individual is not, in fact authorized by you. If you have reason to believe that your password has been compromised or used without authorization, you must promptly change it using the functionality provided on the Website.
