Your Privacy on valdog.com
This Web site is administered by Valdog Consulting, LLC. The primary purpose of this Web site is to serve as a business resource for helping your organization select and manage professional services. We want you to feel comfortable and secure when you visit our site, knowing that we are fully committed to safeguarding your privacy.
The following provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit.
Information that we Gather
Information on Valdog.com is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly (for example, through our site's technology); and (2) directly (for example, when you provide information on various pages of Valdog.com).
One example of information we collect indirectly is through our Internet access logs. When you access Valdog.com, your Internet address is automatically collected and may be placed in our Internet access logs.
We also collect information when you voluntarily submit it to us. Throughout our site, we provide various opportunities to submit data (e.g., ask a question, complete a survey, etc.). When we collect this type of information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for information and how this information will be used. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.
How Gathered Information is Used
We analyze it to determine what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it, and eventually, to determine how we can tailor Valdog.com to make it more effective. We may also use data for other purposes, which we would describe to you at the point of collecting the information.
Third Party Information Sharing
Information we collect may be transferred internally throughout Valdog as necessary. We will not sell individual information and will share it only with our advisors. There may be times when we need to share information, for example, in the case of a conference registration or upcoming event. Again, before you submit any information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for specific information and it is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.
Sensitive Personal Data
We do not collect sensitive personal data through this site. We may collect some sensitive personal data incidentally. By providing us with unsolicited sensitive personal data, you consent to our using the data subject to applicable law as described in this Privacy Statement. The references to "sensitive personal data" are to the various categories of personal data identified by European and other data privacy laws as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances the need to obtain explicit consent. These categories comprise personal identity numbers, personal data about personality and private life, racial or ethnic origin, nationality, political opinions, membership of political parties or movements, religious, philosophical or other similar beliefs, membership of a trade union or profession or trade association, physical or mental health, genetic code, addictions, sexual life, property matters or criminal record (including information about suspected criminal activities).
Access to your Information
You are entitled to know whether we hold information about you and, if we do, to have access to that information and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate. You can do this by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are interested in maintaining your privacy and creating a valuable resource for you to use. If you have any questions now or during your visit, please contact us via our webmaster at email@example.com.
