The New York State Technology Enterprise Corporation (“NYSTEC”) respects the privacy of our visitors. This policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit the NYSTEC website [www.nystec.com] (the “site”) and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information. We collect only such personal information as is needed to provide the information, service, or assistance that you request. In general terms, “personal information” is information which you or someone acting on your behalf submits to NYSTEC and which identifies you or can be used to contact you, such as name, address, email address or phone number.
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
In order for NYSTEC to respond to specific inquiries, we may request that you provide certain information. If you choose to identify yourself (or otherwise provide us with personal information) when you use our online forms:
- We may periodically send promotional emails about new service offerings, events, or other information that we think you may find interesting, using the email you provided.
- If you request information, services, or assistance, we may disclose your personal information to those third parties that (in our judgment) are appropriate in order to respond to your request. If, when you provide us with such information, you specify that you do not want us to disclose the information to third parties, we will honor your request. Note, however, that if you do not provide such information, it may be impossible for us to refer or respond to your inquiry.
- If your communication relates to a law enforcement matter, we may disclose the information to law enforcement agencies that we deem appropriate.
No Absolute Security of Information Transmitted
NYSTEC has implemented security features to help prevent the unauthorized release of or access to personal information that you provide via this website. Even with such security measures the confidentiality of any communication, information or other material transmitted to or from NYSTEC via this site cannot be guaranteed. Accordingly, any transmission of personal information is at your own risk and NYSTEC does not assume responsibility for the security or confidentiality of information being transmitted to or from this website. NYSTEC and its affiliates will have no liability for disclosures of personally identifiable information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties.
Please note that electronic communication is not necessarily secure against interception. NEVER send sensitive data (e.g., Social Security, bank account, or credit card numbers) by email or web form.
Use of Aggregated Information
We reserve the right to disclose to third parties information about usage of the website and any related services, including information gathered during your use of the website. Any information disclosed for this purpose will be in the form of aggregated data (such as overall patterns or demographic reports) that does not describe or identify any individual visitor.
