Your business is nobody else’s business!

 

Your privacy is important to us at Business Power Tools. We treat your privacy like our own. So, we’ve developed a Privacy Policy that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your information. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy policies practices and Click Here to Contact Us if you have any questions or concerns.

Collection & 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 Business Power Tools or a Business Power Tools affiliated company. Business Power Tools and its affiliates may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They 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 Business Power Tools may collect and how we may use it.

What personal information we collect

  • When you create an Business Power Tools ID, register your products, apply for commercial credit, purchase a product, download a software update, register for a class at an Business Power Tools Retail Store, or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, and credit card information.
  • When you share your content with family and friends using Business Power Tools products, send gift certificates and products, or invite others to join you on Business Power Tools forums, Business Power Tools may collect the information you provide about those people such as name, mailing address, email address, and phone number.

How we use your personal information

  • The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on Business Power Tools’ 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 Business Power Tools, 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 Business Power Tools’ products, services, and customer communications.
  • If you enter into a sweepstakes, contest, or similar promotion we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.

Collection & 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, use, transfer, and disclose 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 such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, location, and the time zone where an Business Power Tools product is used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, services, and advertising.
  • We also may collect information regarding customer activities on our website 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.

We understand how important this information is to you. We are committed to keeping it strictly confidential. Your privacy is not for sale. We will never sell, rent, or otherwise abuse the private information you have trusted us with.

Cookies & Other Technologies

To access the Business Power Tools online dashboard / system, we do require that you accept a small “cookie” file in your browser. Business Power Tools’ website, online services, interactive applications, email messages, and advertisements may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. Virtually all Internet applications do these days because the functionality of the service requires them. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, 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.

Business Power Tools and its partners use cookies and other technologies in advertising services to control the number of times you see a given ad, deliver ads that relate to your interests, and measure the effectiveness of ad campaigns. If you do not want to receive ads with this level of relevance on your mobile device, you can opt out by accessing the following link on your device: http://www.businesspowertools.com. If you opt out, you will continue to receive the same number of mobile ads, but they may be less relevant because they will not be based on your interests. You may still see ads related to the content on a web page or in an application or based on other non-personal information. This opt-out applies only to Business Power Tools advertising services and does not affect interest-based advertising from other advertising networks.

Business Power Tools and our partners also 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 Business Power Tools more convenient and personal. For example, knowing your first name lets us welcome you the next time you visit the Business Power Tools Online Store. Knowing your country and language − and if you are an educator, your school − helps us provide a customized and more useful shopping experience. Knowing someone using your computer or device has shopped for a certain product or used a particular service helps us make our advertising and email communications more relevant to your interests. Plus, knowing your contact information, product serial numbers, and information about your computer or device helps us register your products, personalize your operating system, set up your online service(s), and provide you with better customer service.

If you want to disable cookies and you’re using the FireFox web browser, pull-down under “Tools” and then to the “General” panel to manage cookies. If you want to disable cookies and you’re using the Safari web browser, go to Safari preferences and then to the privacy panel to disable cookies. On your Business Power Tools mobile device, go to Settings, then Safari, and then to the Cookies section. For other browsers, check with your provider to find out how to disable cookies. Please note that certain features of the Business Power Tools website will not be available once cookies are disabled.

As is true of most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Business Power Tools may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Business Power Tools 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.

Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.

Disclosure to Third Parties

At times Business Power Tools may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with Business Power Tools to provide products and services, or that help Business Power Tools market to customers. For example, when you purchase and activate your application or online program, you authorize Business Power Tools and its web hosting service(s) to exchange the information you provide during the activation process to carry out service.

Personal information will only be shared by Business Power Tools to provide or improve our products, services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.

Service Providers

Business Power Tools shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever Business Power Tools operates.

Others

It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for Business Power Tools to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.

We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.

Protection of Personal Information

Business Power Tools takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

Business Power Tools online services such as the Business Power Tools Online Store and Masterkey.BusinessPowerTools.com use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is collected. To make purchases from these services, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal information while it’s transmitted over the Internet.

When you use some Business Power Tools products, services, or applications or post on an Business Power Tools forum, chat room, or social networking service, the personal information you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.

Integrity & Retention of Personal Information

Business Power Tools makes it easy for you to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

Access to Personal Information

You can help ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by logging in to your account: Log-In to My Account. 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 Business Power Tools 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, jeopardize 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 through the regional Privacy Contact Form.

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.

Location-Based Services

To provide location-based services on Business Power Tools products, Business Power Tools and our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Business Power Tools computer or device. This location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Business Power Tools and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, we may share geographic location with application providers when you opt in to their location services.

Some location-based services offered by Business Power Tools, such as the “Expert Referral Network” feature, require your personal information for the feature to work (ex. Find an expert within [00] miles).

3rd-Party Sites & Services

Business Power Tools websites, products, applications, and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties − for example, a third-party app like phpMyDirectory. Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.

International Users

Information you provide may be transferred or accessed by entities around the world as described in this Privacy Policy. Business Power Tools abides by the “safe harbor” frameworks set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information collected by organizations in the European Economic Area and Switzerland. Learn more about the U.S. Department of Commerce Safe Harbor Program.

Our Company-wide Commitment to Your Privacy

To make sure your personal information is secure, we communicate our privacy and security guidelines to Business Power Tools employees and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the company.
