Newgate Security believes that privacy is important to the success and use of the Internet.  This statement sets forth our Privacy Policy for NewgateSecurity.com. It describes the practices that we will follow with respect to the privacy of users on this site.

What is personally identifiable information?
“Personally identifiable information” is information about you, such as name, address, e-mail address, user ID, credit card number, and so on, that Newgate Security may collect (i.e., with your permission, if you choose) when you are on the Newgate Security site and when you use Newgate Security services.

How is information collected, used, and disclosed?
We do not collect personal information, including your e-mail address, without your permission.  We may request that you voluntarily supply us with information, including your e-mail address, street address, telephone number, or other information so that we may enhance your site visit, or (if you so permit) follow up with you after your site visit (e.g., contacting you regarding new or changes to our services).  Whether or not you provide any information is entirely up to you.

If you have voluntarily provided information, you have consented to the collection and use of your personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy Statement.  In some circumstances, Newgate Security may share information you voluntarily provide to us with trustworthy business partners.  We do not sell or rent personal information collected through this site to anyone.  Also, Newgate Security may provide aggregate (i.e., totaled, collective) statistics about visitors to our sites, such as volume, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifiable information.  Newgate Security may also disclose information in special cases when we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process (e.g., we are subpoenaed through a court of law), (b) protect and defend our rights or property, (c) enforce the Web Site Terms and Conditions of Use, or (d) act to protect the legitimate interests of our users or others.

What are “cookies” and how are they used?
Some Newgate Security sites, like other commercial web sites, may utilize a standard technology called “cookies” to collect information about how our site is used.  Cookies were designed to help a web site operator determine that a particular user had visited the site previously and to save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site.  Cookies are small strings of text that web sites can send to your browser.  Cookies cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or obtain your e-mail address.  If you are simply browsing a Newgate Security informational site, a cookie may be used to identify your browser as one that has visited the site before.

We may also make use of memory-based cookies in support of authenticating the user of certain Newgate Security web applications.  Similarly, if you are a registered user of a site providing service to Newgate Security clients (and have a user ID and password), we may use cookies so that we can provide personalized information based on preferences you have indicated while using the site.  Although you have the ability to modify your browser to either accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is sent, or reject all cookies, if you choose to reject cookies, then it may not be possible to utilize those Newgate Security services which require registration.

What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information?
If you have voluntarily provided information, you have consented to the collection and use of your personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy Statement.  If, in connection with your use of a particular service, we ask to use your data in a way not described in this Privacy Statement and you do not wish to permit that use, you can choose not to use that particular service.

If you have voluntarily provided personally identifiable information, we may, from time to time, send you mail or e-mail regarding products and services.  If you do not want to receive such offers and mailings, you can easily indicate that choice by checking the appropriate box on the submission form.

How can you correct, access, and update your information?
If you have a need to correct, access or update your information, please send us an e-mail and we will promptly reply.

How do we protect your information?
We intend to exercise care to protect your personally identifiable information.  This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection, and site monitoring as appropriate.  Unfortunately, due to many technical facts (e.g., the open and global nature of the Internet, possible flaws in the design of some third party technology components, etc.) no data transmission over the public Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us.  This is especially true for information you transmit to us via e-mail and we have no way of protecting that information before it reaches us.  Once we receive your transmission, we will strive to protect its security on our servers.

Internally, we will restrict access to your personally identifiable information to employees who need access to the information in order to do their jobs.  These employees (and potentially consultants) are limited in number and are instructed regarding our privacy policies.  We will review our security arrangements from time to time as we deem appropriate.

How can you help protect your information?
If you are using a Newgate Security web site for which you registered and chose a password, do not divulge your password to anyone.  We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited e-mail.  Also, remember to sign out of the registered site and close your browser window when you have finished your work.  This is to help prevent others from accessing your personal information and correspondence if they have local, physical access to your computer.

Other sites
Newgate Security sites may contain links to other sites, including those of our business partners.  While we seek to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by other sites.

Possible future changes
From time to time, we may change this Privacy Statement.  For example, as we update and improve our service, new features may require modifications to the Privacy Statement (e.g., if new, interactive technical features are added to the site).  If so, we will notify you by posting the change(s) to this statement.  Accordingly, please check this statement periodically.
