Collection of your information
We will ask you when and if we need information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you.
We may collect information about your interaction with the Site. For example, we may use web site analytics tools on the Site to retrieve information from your browser, including the site you came from, the search engine(s) and the keywords you used to find the Site, the pages you view within the Site, and your browser's width and height. We also may use technologies, such as cookies and web beacons (described below), to collect information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on the Site. Additionally, we collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every web site you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring web site addresses.
Use of your information
Caryl Technologies collects and uses your information to operate and improve its sites and deliver the services or carry out the transactions you have requested. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the sites or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and technologies; and displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences.
Caryl Technologies occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as web site hosting; packaging, mailing and delivering prizes; answering customer questions about products and services; and sending information about our products, special offers, and other new services. If we provide personal information to such companies, we only provide the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Caryl Technologies may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
- conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Caryl Technologies or the Site;
- protect and defend the rights or property of Caryl Technologies and our family of web sites;
- act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Caryl Technologies products or members of the public.

By using the Site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. Caryl Technologies abides by the safe harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union.
Control of your information
Except as otherwise described in this statement, personal information you provide on the Site will not be shared outside of Caryl Technologies and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your permission.
Please be aware that this Privacy Statement and any choices you make on the Site will not necessarily apply to personal information you may have provided to Caryl Technologies in the context of other, separately operated, Caryl Technologies products or services.
Security of your information
Caryl Technologies is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer servers with limited access that are located in controlled facilities. Additionally, when we transmit sensitive personal information (such as a credit card number) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of delivering relevant content, eases site navigation, and so on. When you return to the web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the site's features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to use interactive features of this or other web sites that depend on cookies.
Use of web beacons
Caryl Technologies web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons--sometimes called single-pixel GIFs--that may be used to assist in delivering cookies on our sites and allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. We may include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
Caryl Technologies may also employ web beacons from third parties in order to help us compile aggregated statistics and determine the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns. We prohibit web beacons on our sites from being used by third parties to collect or access your personal information.

If you choose to become a registered subscriber, we will ask for personal information from you through sites powered by Caryl Technologies.
After we collect this information from you, it may be verified by our organization. Children under 13 years of age are not allowed to register themselves with the Caryl Technologies site. Children under 13 must have a parent or legal guardian register. A parent also has the right to refuse to further collection of the child’s information. After registration, Caryl Technologies will assign to you a role or roles (viewing privileges). Based upon your designated role(s), you may have access to additional information or services. If you have questions concerning your role(s), please contact Caryl Technologies.
You may be pre-registered by your organization in one of two ways. Either way, your organization may not share personal information for children under 13 years of age with Caryl Technologies without first receiving parental consent.
Your registration information may be shared with Caryl Technologies via an organization. Caryl Technologies would use this list to conduct a batch import of information. A designated individual may also input registration information for you. Information collected for registration may also be used to (1) provide you with important information about updates or notices, (2) improve our product and services, (3) improve customer service and/or (4) in aggregate, guide our internal marketing efforts. No personally identifiable information will be shared with third parties unless authorized by you. Additional information may be requested of you in other situations, for example, if you submit a customer support request or a content submission request. In such instances, the goal of collecting additional information is to serve you more effectively and efficiently. It is important to understand that sites powered by Caryl Technologies are used to present and archive information supplied by content contributors designated by you or your organization. Caryl Technologies does not supply the organization-specific content appearing on your organization’s website. Once posted to the Internet, content supplied by content contributors at your organization is public information available via the Internet.
Privacy of Children
Caryl Technologies is dedicated to the privacy of children under 13 years of age. We do not collect or entice (by use of contests, games, prizes, or other enticements) from children more information than is needed to access services. We will not share any personal information about children with third parties unless authorized. As a parent or legal guardian for children under 13, you may review your child’s personal information. If you would like to refuse to allow any further collection or use of your child’s information, please contact us by using our web contact form. If you do not receive acknowledgement of your inquiry or your inquiry has not been satisfactorily addressed, you should then contact Caryl Technologies to resolve your concerns.
