Privacy Policy

Introduction, Subscriptions and Cookies:

TOWER does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. For example, such personally identifiable information may be gathered from a competition entry, software registration or customers support.

Personally identifiable information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection. At such points of collection, the user will have the opportunity to indicate whether he or she would like to “opt out” of receiving promotional and/or marketing information about other products, services and offerings from TOWER and/or any third parties.

TOWER reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners.

TOWER will provide only aggregated data from these analyses to third parties. Also, users should be aware that TOWER might sometimes permit third parties to offer subscription and/or registration-based services through a TOWER site. TOWER is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties and users should check the applicable privacy policy of such party when providing personally identifiable information.

Users also should be aware that non-personal information and data might be automatically collected through the standard operation of TOWER ‘s internet servers or through the use of “cookies.” “Cookies” are small text files a web site can use to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user’s ongoing access to and use of the site and allow a site to track usage behaviour and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements and targeted advertising.

Cookies are not programs that come onto a user’s system and damage files. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. Users should be aware that TOWER cannot control the use of cookies or the resulting information by advertisers or third parties hosting data for TOWER.

If a user does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allow the user to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, users should note that cookies might be necessary to provide the user with certain features (e.g., customized delivery of information) available on the TOWER Site.

Upon request, TOWER will allow any user to “opt out” of further promotional contacts at any time. Additionally, upon request, TOWER will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update/correct personal information previously submitted which the user states is erroneous to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user’s request, TOWER will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user’s entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.

The foregoing policies are effective as of August 6, 1999. TOWER reserves the right to change this policy at any time by notifying users of the existence of a new privacy statement. This statement and the policies outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.

The privacy of our Users is held in high regard. We have therefore developed this Policy to inform our Users of how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information when registering and using the TOWER web-based application and website.

Certain information from and about the User will, however, be collected and changed into a statistic, which will be made available for public purposes in an attempt to improve value offering by TOWER. This information will at all times be anonymous and will not in any way be linked to a certain individual User(s).

How will use your information:

Upon registration with TOWER, a User will need to provide his full name, email address, billing address and billing information. The information collected will be used for general purposes including, but not limited to, products and services provision, billing, identification and authentication, services, improvement, contact and research.

Security

The security of our User’s information is also of great importance to us and will we take all reasonable steps to ensure the safe-keeping thereof. We follow industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, but no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is a 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect the personal information of our User’s, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Disclosure

TOWER may disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as to comply with court orders requiring us to do so or when your actions violate the TOWER’s Terms and Conditions.

TOWER’s Privacy Policy can thus be outlined as follow:

When personal information is provided by a User, we will identify the purpose for which that information will be collected and used; Information collected will never be sold to other organizations except to provide the services provided by TOWER.

The information collected will solely be used with the objective of fulfilling those purposes specified by us unless permission is requested from the User as required by law.

Personal information will only be kept for the period necessary for the fulfilment of those purposes.

Personal Information will be collected by lawful and fair means and if necessary, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.
Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used and to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete and up-to-date.

Should TOWER be acquired by or merged with another company, your information will be transferred to the new company. In this event, TOWER will notify you by email or a prominent notice on the website before the User’s information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

We will endeavour to protect all personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft together with unauthorized access, disclosure, copying use or modification.
