Activate is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the Activate website.

Use of your Personal Information

Activate collects and uses your personal information to operate its website(s) and deliver the services you have requested.

Activate may also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Activate and its affiliates.

Activate does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. However, Activate does collect user information on behalf of third parties, as disclosed at the time of information collection, and in such cases may share such user information with third parties.

Activate may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is transferred to the third party. Activate may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Activate, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Activate may keep track of the websites and pages our users visit within Activate or Biz-Tech-Insights, in order to determine what Activate services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Activate to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

Activate will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Activate or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Activate; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Activate, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Activate or Biz-Tech-Insights websites may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Activate pages, or register with the Biz-Tech-Insights or Activate sites or services, a cookie helps recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Activate website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Activate 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 fully experience the interactive features of the Activate services or websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Activate secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
