At Sparrow Technologies, we are committed to protecting your privacy and to
developing technology that gives you the most powerful and secure online
experience. You can travel through most of our site without giving us any
information about yourself. But sometimes we do need information to provide
services that you request, and this statement of privacy explains data
collection and use in those situations. Please read the complete Sparrow Technologies
Collecting your Personal Information
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you
(personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information
is requested when you are asked to register before entering a contest, ordering
e-mail newsletters, joining a limited-access premium site, or when purchasing
and registering Sparrow Technologies products. Personal information collected by Sparrow Technologies
often is limited to e-mail address, language, country or location,
but may include other information when needed to provide a service you
When you buy and install a new product, we may ask you to register your
purchase electronically. When you do, we keep this registration information on
file with any information you've already given us on previous visits to our Web
site. This is considered your personal profile.
Use of your Personal Information
We use your personal information for four primary purposes:
To make the site easier for you to use by not making you enter your personal
information more than once.
To help you quickly find software, services or information on our web site.
To help us create and deliver content most relevant to you.
To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information and other
new services from Sparrow Technologies.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf,
including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer
questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event
registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to
deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for
any other purpose.
Sparrow Technologies 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 Sparrow Technologies or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or
property of Sparrow Technologies and its family of Web sites, and, (c) act in urgent
circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Sparrow Technologies, its
Web sites, or the public.
Control of your Personal Information
When you register, or otherwise give us personal information, Sparrow Technologies
will not share that information with third parties without your permission,
other than for the limited exceptions already listed. It will only be used for
the purposes stated above.
Security of your Personal Information
Sparrow Technologies strictly protects the security of your personal information and
honors your choices for its intended use. We carefully protect your data from
loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your
permission, except under conditions explained above. Inside the company, data
is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access. Your information
may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where Sparrow Technologies,
its subsidiaries, affiliates or agents are located.
Changes to this Statement
Sparrow Technologies will occasionally update this privacy statement. When we do, we
will also revise the "last updated" date at the top of the privacy statement.
For material changes to this Statement, Sparrow Technologies will notify you by
placing prominent notice on the Web site.
