Octopus Systems respects your privacy. We realize that the exciting growth of the Internet and online services raise questions concerning the nature, use and confidentiality of information collected about consumers.
Octopus Systems does not share, disclose or sell any personally-identifiable information (such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) collected online with other unaffiliated companies or organizations for non-Octopus Systems marketing purposes. In the future, should Octopus Systems decide to share such data with third parties for marketing, it will provide notification and the opportunity for its users to indicate whether they would prefer that the Company not provide such information about them to third parties. Because this information is a critical part of our business, it would be treated like our other assets in the context of a merger, sale or other corporate reorganization or legal proceeding.
Like most businesses today, Octopus Systems uses partners to carry out certain functions in marketing and delivering services to you and so shares online data with those partners to the extent necessary for them to perform their work. Of course, such partners must use that personally-identifiable information only for the purpose(s) for which it was shared and protect it from any further use. Octopus Systems also shares such information with other industry and credit-related organizations to improve operations and to protect against fraud, security and credit risks.
We also provide personally-identifiable online information in response to subpoenas and other legal demands, and where we believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against individuals who may be endangering public safety or interfering with Octopus Systems property or services, or with our customers’ or others’ use of them.
Octopus Systems may also use “cookies” and similar technology to obtain information about your visits to our sites or your responses to e-mail from us – both individually and in aggregated data that does not identify you. These reporting tools tell us the parts of our web site or e-mails in which you showed an interest or took some action, and help us improve the quality and usefulness of our sites.
Octopus Systems may use e-mail addresses you provide us online to send you e-mail related to Octopus Systems products and services or if you have affirmatively indicated a desire to receive additional information. If at any time, you would prefer not to receive further marketing communications, please send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
