IP addresses are not used by Cetaris to personally identify individuals, and Cetaris does not link IP addresses to other forms of identifiable information, however IP addresses may be considered to be personal information under the laws of certain jurisdictions.

Use and Disclosure of Personal Information 

Except as part of the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of Cetaris, Cetaris will not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to any third party unless we have your explicit opt-in consent. We will only use and/or disclose personal information in order to: provide you with any services that you have engaged Cetaris for; understand and meet your needs and preferences; develop new and enhance existing service and product offerings; manage and develop our business and operations; and meet legal and regulatory requirements.  Cetaris will request your consent when your information may be used for marketing or activities not directly related the functioning of this site or the fulfillment of contractual obligations.

We also reserve the right to use, disclose, sell, trade or rent aggregated data, provided that the data is not linked to any specific individual. Except where we are required by law to disclose personal information, we will require any person to whom we provide your personal information to agree to comply with our then current Policy. We will take reasonable efforts to ensure that they comply with this Policy; however, to the extent allowed under applicable law, we will have no liability to you if any person fails to do so.

Cookie Policy

We may use "cookies" from time to time to help personalize your online experience with us. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer to help us make your visit to our site more user friendly. Cookies provide us with information about your use of the site that can help us improve the site and your experience with it. Any personal information collected about you through cookies will be treated in accordance with this Policy. If you have set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you should receive a warning message with each cookie. You may refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser, however you should be aware that our site like most other popular sites may not work well with cookies disabled.

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our sites. We do not have access or control over these cookies.  For example, our website utilizes Google Analytics, a common website analytics tool.  For more information about Google Analytics, please refer to the website, “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps” at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.  Our site also uses Fullstory, an analytics tool that helps us see how visitors are navigating our website.  

This site uses the following categories of cookies :

Strictly necessary cookies - these are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, a first part session-id, which identifies a user and stores the application servers to use for the user’s session.

Analytics & customization cookies - these functional cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our websites are being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our websites and applications for you in order to enhance your experience.

Performance & functionality cookies - these cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our website but are non-essential to their use. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable.

We may also use tracking pixels (also known as clear gifs or web beacons), which are invisible 1x1 pixel images that are requested from a remote server via a url that typically contains small strings of encoded information, which may in part be determined by cookies.  When a tracking pixel is requested from a server, that server may decode and process this information, for example, storing it to serve log files for future analysis.  Our site uses Facebook pixels, which helps us track conversions from Facebook ads, optimize ads based on collected data, build targeted audiences for future ads, and remarket to qualified leads.  Our site also uses the LinkedIn Insight Tag, which is a JavaScript tag that powers conversion tracking, retargeting, and web analytics for LinkedIn ad campaigns.  Please use the following link to help you opt out of any remarketing pixels and related technologies:  http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices. 

Online Tracking / Do Not Track

We do not track our visitors across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore we do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.  However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you.  If you are visiting such sites, your internet browser may allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
