Privacy Policy

SIPM is committed to protecting your privacy and earning your trust. SIPM does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. This policy discloses the privacy practices for the SIPM Web site. We use the information we collect about you from the SIPM Web site to process orders and maintain a relationship with you throughout the use of our products and services. This policy explains how your personal information is protected. It is our intent to give you as much control as possible over your privacy and personal information and the use we make of it in our business. This policy is subject to change, so please check back from time to time to stay informed.

What kinds of personal information does SIPM collect?

In general, you can visit SIPM on the Web without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We ask for information from you in several ways from different parts of our Web site.

How does SIPM use my information?

We collect personal information to help us provide a high quality user experience, and to aid SIPM in understanding our customers better. SIPM does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. The personal information you choose to give us allows SIPM to process and fulfill your request for a free trial of the SIPM Training Center. We also use that information should you choose to order our products and services to process and complete your order and notify you of your order status.

Who collects information?

When you supply personal information on a SIPM site, you share that information only with SIPM unless you are specifically told otherwise. If a company other than SIPM is gathering or maintaining your personal data from our Web site, you will be told before it is collected or transferred. You can always choose not to share the information. When companies other than SIPM sponsor promotions, data collected on the SIPM site in connection with these promotions may be shared with the sponsor. Once again, if this is the case, you will be notified before the data is collected or transferred, and you can decide not to participate. Most of these promotions are limited to United States or North American residents. If you leave our Web site using links to go to other third party Web sites, those third parties may gather information about you. This privacy policy does not cover the practices of those businesses.

Does SIPM share my information?

Other than as stated in this policy, SIPM does not disclose any of your personal information to third parties without your permission. Read the following sections to learn more.

Business Partners and Sponsors

SIPM may disclose your personal information to business partners or sponsors, but you will be notified beforehand and will be able to choose not to share your information. Many promotions give you the chance to request additional information from the sponsors. When you ask for more information, you give SIPM permission to send your personal information to the sponsor so they can fulfill your request. Much of the time, only your E-mail address will be shared. You will be notified if more information will be shared, and you can choose not to share the information.

Third-party Data and Aggregate Data

SIPM discloses aggregated or anonymous statistics (for example, the percentage of users from the western U.S.) to prospective partners and advertisers and for other lawful purposes.

Other Situations

SIPM may also disclose your information where disclosure is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with our rights or property rights, the users’ rights, or others’ rights. In the same way, SIPM will disclose information when we reasonably believe disclosure is required by law or to comply with a legal process served on SIPM or its Web site. We may disclose your personal information in the good faith belief that we must act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of SIPM, its Web site, or the public.

Do I have a choice about how my information is gathered, used and distributed?

Yes. When you register with SIPM, you can choose to receive newsletters, information, and E-mails from SIPM and third parties. If you change your mind, you can simply update your account information on our Web site so that the information will not be sent. It’s your choice. Some of our promotions may request your E-mail address so that you can receive periodic updates about the status of the promotion. When you participate in these types of promotions, you will automatically receive promotion-related E-mail; however, you can choose the no-E-mail option that some promotions offer. Occasionally these promotion-related E-mail messages may include targeted advertisements. You can make decisions about cookies. You can modify your browser preferences to accept all cookies, be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you decide to reject all cookies, you cannot participate in SIPM services that require registration to participate. We will notify you any time we want to transfer the data we have collected or share it with a third party, and you always have the option to forbid the transfer.

What security measures does SIPM take to protect me?

Your SIPM account information and profile are password-protected so that you are the only one who has access to your personal information. You can edit your account information and profile by using your login name and password. We recommend that you follow these guidelines to protect yourself: Do not tell anyone your password. If your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password. Do not respond to unsolicited E-mail by giving your password, even if the E-mail claims to be from us. SIPM will never ask you for your password in this way. When you are done using SIPM, sign out of your account and close your browser window. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although we are committed to protecting your personal information, SIPM cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you send to us (or from our online services) and you do so at your own risk.

How does SIPM protect your credit card and financial information?

We are committed to protecting the privacy of your credit card and financial account information. We do not sell, trade, or rent your financial or credit card information. We do not make this information available to anyone without your permission. We may provide statistical data on our customers to advertisers, partners, vendors, and other reputable third parties. This data is comprised of aggregate or anonymous data only, which does not contain any personally identifiable information. For example, we will not disclose that you purchased a specific product, but we might disclose statistics on how many customers have purchased a specific product. When you enter credit card information on our Web site, we transmit the information in encrypted format, using industry standard, secure socket layer (SSL) encryption.

Log Files: Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page. When you use the Services, our servers automatically record certain information your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.

How long we store your Personal Data

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or it is reasonably needed for the purposes set out in How We Use Your Personal Data and Why unless you request that we remove your Personal Data as described in Your Rights Relating to Your Personal Data. We will only retain your Personal Data for so long as we reasonably need to use it for these purposes unless a longer retention period is required by law (for example for regulatory purposes). This may include keeping your Personal Data after you have deactivated your account for the period of time needed for us to pursue legitimate business interests, conduct audits, comply with (and demonstrate compliance with) legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

What are cookies and how does SIPM use them?

Parts of our learning management system use “cookies” so that it can immediately recognize a user and then ascribe different permissions associated with functionality in the system. A “cookie” is a chunk of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored by your browser on the hard drive of your computer. Your browser settings must be set to accept cookies before you can login or customize. Most browsers are set up to accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser settings to refuse them. SIPM does not use cookies to retrieve personal information about you from your computer. This policy does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers on our Web site. SIPM uses cookies to: Locate your name and account information when you log in to your SIPM Training Center so that you can access your account information. When you log in, the cookie is set, and when you sign-out, the cookie is modified. Estimate the size of our audience. Each browser that accesses SIPM is given a unique cookie, which is used to calculate how many people return to our Web site, compare the number of registered and unregistered visitors to our site, and use customer interests and behavior to target our advertisements. Help SIPM partners track visits and complete business transactions. This information is sometimes called “clickstream” or “click trail.” Track the way you use our promotions, contests, and sales. When a SIPM-hosted promotion uses cookies, the information written to the cookie tracks the user’s progress through the promotion (for example, entries, submissions, and status in prize drawings). Measure the traffic to various areas of the SIPM Web site. We measure the areas of the network of Web sites you visit and your visiting patterns in the aggregate. This research helps us understand the ways in which our customers are alike and the ways in which they differ. We may use this information to personalize the information and design in our Web site.
