Privacy Policy

Overview

Criterium Inc. (“Criterium” or “we”) considers the protection of personal privacy to be one of our most important values. This privacy policy (“Policy”) gives you specific information on how we protect your privacy, how we treat personal information, and the choices you have.

As a condition of using the Criteirum site, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Policy. Additional terms and conditions which govern your use of the Criterium site are contained in our User Agreement, and, as applicable, in certain other service, specific license agreements or terms of use, which you will be notified of at the time of your registration for the applicable services.

The Policy is accessible through the Criterium site in several ways, including from a link entitled “Privacy Policy” at the bottom of the Criterium home page. You acknowledge that this Policy may change over time. If we make a material change to the terms of this Policy, we will give you 30 days notice of those changes (“Notice Period”) through reasonably prominent disclosure, including via email. However, you should check the Criterium site regularly for these and other important announcements. Your continued use of the Criterium site following the Notice Period will signify that you agree to these changes.

Information Collection, Storage and Use

We refer to information that identifies an individual as “Personal Information”. In general, Criterium collects Personal Information from users of the Criterium site in connection with access to certain online areas or services, including during (i) registration for certain online community services and tools such as message boards, chat rooms or other community services; (ii) registration for special communications, such as email updates and newsletters; (iii) subscription registration; and (iv) user surveys. Your Personal Information is stored on Criterium computer servers (or those of its service providers) located in the United States.

We may gather data about the areas of the Criterium site you visit or access. We do not use any of this navigational data about where you, as an individual user, go on Criterium site or share any of this data with third parties. However, we do use and share navigational data in aggregate, non-personal form to understand how our users as a group use the Criterium site.

Below are more details about the Personal Information we, or third parties may gather from you and how we may use it.

    A. Email Newsletters. Criterium offers email newsletters to its registered users. We will use your email address to send you only the specific newsletter(s) that you signed up for. If you want to update your email address or stop receiving a newsletter, follow the procedures to unsubscribe at the bottom of any newsletter we send you.

    B. Surveys and User Research. Criterium conducts email and web-delivered surveys from time to time, to gather information about our users and sites. Taking these surveys and polls is entirely optional. You have no obligation to respond to them. We share only the aggregate results of these surveys, not Personal Information, with our partners to help them better understand our services and monitor the reach of our webpage.

    C. Use of Cookies. On the Internet, a “cookie” is a piece of information (a file) that a Web site transfers to a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. The use of cookies is common on the Internet. The process we use track use of the Criterium site involves cookies. Cookies also enable us to measure aggregate (total) usage and traffic to the Criteirum site and to specific offerings. This aids us in producing content that best meets our users’ preferences. In order to implement new services, we may use other types of cookies as well. We also may use cookies to understand better what parts of the Criterium site you like best. You may configure your browser to reject cookies, but this may interfere with some functionality of the Criteirum site. To find out more about changing your browser to reject cookies, we suggest the EPIC Cookies Page http://www.epic.org/privacy/internet/cookies.

    D. Legal Authorities. We may also disclose Personal Information in cases when we reasonably believe that it is necessary to identify someone who may be violating Criteirum policies or Criterium site “User Agreements” or other terms of use, or who may be a threat to Criterium rights, property, or personal safety. The Criteirum site may disclose Personal Information to comply with valid legal process such as a duly issued search warrant, subpoena or court order.

Information Storage and Security

Your Personal Information is stored on Criteirum computer servers located in the United States. We protect your Personal Information with technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect against loss, unauthorized access, destruction, misuse, modification and improper disclosure. No computer system or information can ever be fully protected against every possible hazard. But Criteirum is committed to providing reasonable and appropriate security controls to protect our Criterium site and all Personal Information against foreseeable hazards.

Notwithstanding these security measures, please be aware that when you submit Personal Information to the Criteirum site over the Internet, the information may travel over many systems that are not under the Criteirum’s control. We take the protection of user data very seriously and to that end take reasonable safeguards to prevent interception of any Personal Information.
