(a) Access Logs: Scope (This statement sets out what we do when data about you comes to us.)
Your "footprints" - When you visit our web site, our web site hosting provider automatically records certain data about you. Most other web sites do too. The data is recorded in a log of accesses (the "footprints")
Your "trail" - This log includes the web address you request, the machine from which you make the request, the web browser and version you use, your operating system and a record of each page visited. Where parts of our web site require password access and data as to the login name, the password entered and the number of login attempts will be recorded.
No "Tracking" - In some instances it is possible from the gathered data to guess who you are (we can guess by analyzing the data, or to continue the analogy, by tracking your footprints and trail). We are interested only in the total number of footprints and where they occur on our site and we will not track you.
Limited Use of Data - We use this data for statistical purposes only. We analyse the data and use the information we glean from this analysis to help us improve this site and to monitor or prevent security breaches. We will only disclose the content of our access logs if we are compelled by law to do so.
If you provide any information about yourself (for example, your email address) for the purposes of a newsletter or email subscription service (or similar), we promise to use this information solely for the purposes of:
providing that subscription service; and
maintaining a database of subscribers to the subscription service; and
we will not provide your information to another person for any reason unless we are compelled by law to do so.
We will ensure, so far as is reasonable in the circumstances, that security precautions are in place at the information systems of Sterling Group to ensure this information is not misused.
(c) When Registering
Some of our Web sites ask visitors who request specific information to fill out a registration form. Other information collected at Web sites through questionnaires, feedback forms, or other means, enables us to determine visitors' interests, with the goal of providing better service to our customers. Regardless of the information being transmitted to Lamont Development Inc., we will protect all such information consistent with the principles of the Federal Records Act, the Privacy Act, and as applicable, the Freedom of Information Act.
(d) When Sending Us Email
By sending us an electronic mail (e-mail) message, you may be sending us personal information such as your name, address, and e-mail address. We may store your name, address, and e-mail address of the requester in order to respond to your request or otherwise resolve the subject matter of the e-mail. Under limited circumstances, we may be required by law to disclose the information you submit.
Remember that e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. If your communication is very sensitive, or includes personal information like your Social Security number, you might want to send it by postal mail instead.
Like many companies, we use "cookie" technology on our web site. Cookies may tell us whether you have visited our site before or are a new visitor and what material on our site you have viewed. These cookies also enable the sending of electronic mail messages from our web site. The cookies we use do not collect any personally identifying information about you or provide us with any way to contact you, and the cookies do not extract any information from your computer. We do not associate the cookie with any information you may include in an electronic mail message.
