Privacy Policy

This privacy policy applies to InterTechnologies.com and Inter Technologies websites, services and products that collect data and display these terms, as well as their offline product support services. It does not apply to Inter Technologies sites, services and products that do not display or link to this policy or that have their own privacy policiess. Please read the information below that provides further details on a particular topic.

Cookies and Other Technologies

Inter Technologies websites and online services use "cookies," small text files that can be read by a web server in the domain that put the cookie on your hard drive. Cookies contain text that can be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. That text often consists of a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identifies your computer, but may contain other information as well. We may use cookies to store your preferences and settings; help with sign-in; provide targeted ads; and analyse site operations. We also use web beacons to help deliver cookies and compile analytics.

These technologies help us better understand user behaviour, tell us which parts of our website people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

Our Use of Cookies

We may use cookies for:

Storing your Preferences and Settings. Inter Technologies may use cookies and other technologies to remember personal information when you use our website, online services and applications. Our goal in these cases is to make your experience with Inter Technologies more convenient and personal. For example, knowing your first name lets us welcome you the next time you visit the Inter Technologies Cloud. Knowing your country and language − and if you are an organisation, your organisation name − helps us provide a customised and more useful online experience. Knowing someone using your computer or device has shopped for a certain product or service helps us make our advertising and email communications more relevant to your interests.

Sign-in and Authentication. When you sign in to a site or service using your Inter Technologies account, we store your unique ID number, and the time you signed in, in an encrypted cookie on your hard disk. This cookie allows you to move from page to page at the site without having to sign in again on each page. When you sign out, these cookies are deleted from your computer. We also use cookies to improve the sign-in experience. For example, your e-mail address may be stored in a cookie that will remain on your computer after you sign out. This cookie allows your e-mail address to be pre-populated, so that you will only need to type your password the next time you sign in. If you are using a public computer or do not want this information to be stored, you can select the appropriate radio button on the sign-in page, and this cookie will not be used.

Site Analytics. We may use cookies to count the number of unique visitors to a web page or service or to develop other aggregate statistics about the operations of our sites and services. These analytics help us operate and improve the performance of these sites and services.

How to Control Cookies

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to disable cookies. For instructions on disabling cookies, check with the provider of your browser. Please be aware that if you choose to block cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features of Inter Technologies sites and services that depend on cookies.

If you accept cookies, you can delete them later. For instructions on deleting cookies, check with the provider of your browser.

Our Use of Web Beacons

Inter Technologies web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons - sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that may be used to help deliver cookies on our sites, let us count users who have visited those pages and deliver co-branded services. We may include web beacons in our promotional e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

Other Related Technologies

In some of our email messages, we use a "click-through URL" linked to content on the Inter Technologies website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person.

You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with Inter Technologies. Inter Technologies will use this information consistent with this Privacy Policy. We may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content and advertising.

Here are some examples of the types of personal information Inter Technologies may collect and how we may use it.

What personal information we collect

When you create an Inter Technologies User Account or purchase a product, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, postal address, phone number, email address, and contact preferences.

How we use your personal information

The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on Inter Technologies’ latest product announcements, software updates and upcoming events. It also helps us to improve our services, content and advertising. If you don't want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by updating your preferences.

We also use personal information to help us develop, deliver and improve our products, services, content and advertising.

From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Inter Technologies, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.

We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis and research to improve Inter Technologies' products, services and customer communications.

If you enter into a promotion, we may use the information you provide to administer those programmes.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

We also collect non-personal information — data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect and use non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

We may collect information regarding customer activities on our website, Inter Technologies Cloud, and from our other products and services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

If we do combine non-personal information with personal information, the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

Accessing Your Personal Information

You can help ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete and up to date by signing in to your account at https://www.intertechnologies.com/MyInterTechnologies/LogIn. For other personal information, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access so you can request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if Inter Technologies is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardise the privacy of others, are extremely impractical or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. Access, correction or deletion requests can be made to our Privacy Settings email address.

Children

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.

Display of Advertising

All of the online advertisements on Inter Technologies sites and services are displayed by Inter Technologies.

Communication Preferences

If you receive promotional e-mails from Inter Technologies and would like to stop getting them in the future, you can do so by following the directions in that message.

Support Data

Support Data is the information we collect when you submit a support request, including information about software, and other details related to the support incident, such as: contact or information, information that may be provided as part of a request for help on how to use a particular Inter Technologies product or service, information about the condition of the Inter Technologies Cloud application from where a fault may have occurred. We use Support Data as described in this privacy policy, and additionally use it to resolve your support incident and for training purposes.

Payment Data

Payment Data is the information that you provide when you make online purchases. This may include your payment instrument number (e.g., credit card, PayPal), your name and billing address, and the security code associated with your payment instrument (e.g., the CSV or CVV). This section provides additional information regarding the collection and use of your payment information.

Payment Data is used to complete your transaction, as well as for the detection and prevention of fraud. In support of these uses, Inter Technologies only hold your Payment Data and share with banks and other entities to the extent that is required in order to process payment transactions or other financial services.

When you provide Payment Data while logged in with your Inter Technologies User ID we will NOT store that data.

Inter Technologies User Account

Your Inter Technologies User ID allows you to sign into the Inter Technologies Cloud in order to use Inter Technologies products, web sites and services.

Creating a Inter Technologies User Account

You can create an Inter Technologies User Account here by providing an email address, a password and other "account proofs", such as a date of birth and a question and secret answer. We will use your "account proofs" for security purposes only - for instance, to verify your identity in the event that you cannot access your Inter Technologies account and need assistance, or to reset your password if you cannot access the email address associated with your Inter Technologies User ID. The email address and password that you use to sign up for your Inter Technologies User Account are your "credentials" that you will use to authenticate with our network.

When you create an Inter Technologies User Account, we will also ask you to provide the following demographic information: gender; country; and date of birth. We may use the date of birth to verify that children are above 13 years of age in order to obtain an Inter Technologies User Account.

You can use an email address provided by a third party (such as those ending in live.com, gmail.com or yahoo.com or myorganisationname.com) when signing up for your Inter Technologies User Account.

Upon creating an Inter Technologies User Account, we will send you an email asking you to verify that you are the owner of the email address associated with your Inter Technologies User ID. This is designed to verify the validity of the email address and help prevent email addresses from being used without the permission of their owners. Thereafter, we will use that email address to send you communications relating to your use of Inter Technologies products and services; we may also send you promotional emails about Inter Technologies products and services as permitted by local law.

If you attempt to register for an Inter Technologies User Account and find that another individual has already created credentials with your email address as the user name, you may contact us and request that the other individual adopt a different user name so that you may use your email address when creating your credentials.

Signing into sites or services with your Inter Technologies User ID

When you sign into a site or service using your Inter Technologies User ID (your email address), we collect certain information in order to verify your identity on behalf of the site or service, to protect you from malicious account usage, and to protect the efficiency and security of the Inter Technologies User ID service. For instance, when you sign in, the Inter Technologies User ID service receives and logs your credentials and other information, such as the 64-bit unique ID number assigned to your credentials.

If you received your account from the administrator of a managed domain, that person would have rights over your account, including the ability to reset your password, view your account usage or profile data, read or store content in your account, and suspend or cancel your account. If you are the administrator of a managed domain and have provided your users with Inter Technologies User IDs, you are responsible for all activity that takes place within such accounts.

Accessing your personal information

You can access your personal information by going to account. You can change your user name if your Inter Technologies User ID does not belong to a managed domain. You can always change your password, phone number, and question and secret answer. You may also close your Inter Technologies account by going to delete user account. If your account is in a managed domain, as described above, there may be a special process for closing your account.

More information about Inter Technologies User Account is available at the Inter Technologies User Account web site.

If you have any questions or concerns about Inter Technologies Privacy Policy or data processing, please contact us.

Inter Technologies may update its Privacy Policy from time to time. When we change the policy in a material way, a notice will be posted on our website along with the updated Privacy Policy.
