HOW DOES TRANSITION ARCHITECTS PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
Links to Other Sites
This privacy statement applies only to information collected by a Transition Architects web site.
The Transition Architects web site contains some links to other sites that are not owned or administered by Transition Architects. Please be aware that Transition Architects is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other third party sites. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of every web site you visit.
Active and Passive Collection
On our sites, we collect information in two ways: actively and passively. Active information collection refers to instances in which you voluntarily provide information to us, such as by completing a registration form, signing up for an electronic newsletter, or sending us a message via an e-mail reply mechanism provided by any of our sites. Passive information collection refers to instances in which we collect information from you that you have not actively provided.
Generally, collected information can be in a personally identifiable form (“personal data” or “personally identifiable information”) as well as in a manner that does not allow you to be identified.
Collection and Use of the Personal Data You Provided To Us
You can visit our website without disclosing your personally identifiable information and we do not collect personal data from you unless you may choose to voluntarily provide it to us. When a visitor chooses to provide personally identifiable information to Transition Architects, Transition Architects uses this information solely for the purposes for which it was provided as described at the time of collection. For example, you may choose to provide us with your name and postal or e-mail address to correspond with you or to provide you with the service or information you requested but we will not contact you for any unrelated reasons. If you give us personal information about somebody else, we assume that you have that person’s permission to do so.
We generally retain personal data only for as long as necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.
Information We Collect when You Access our Site
When you access our site, our servers automatically log information about your visits in the normal course of establishing and maintaining web connections. Server logs record statistical information, such as visitors’ IP addresses, type of operating systems, time and duration of visit, web pages requested, and identify categories of visitors by items such as domains and browser types. These statistics are reported in aggregate form and are used to optimize the web experience for visitors.
This site uses Internet protocol (IP) addresses. IP addresses are unique identifiers automatically assigned to each computer when logging onto the Internet. IP addresses allow us to collect much of the same information we collect through cookies, including browser type, what pages you visit, and how long you stay on the Site. In general, IP addresses allow us to identify problems with our servers, prepare aggregate demographic information and other information regarding this use of this Site, and improve the functions of this site.
We use “cookies” and other technologies to collect personally non-identifiable information from your visits to our website to enhance your overall site experience and for statistical purposes. A cookie is a block of data that a web server places on a user’s PC. Typically, it is used to ease navigation through the site. However, it is also a useful means of the website identifying the user, tracking the user’s path through the site, and identifying repeat visits to the site by the same user (or same user’s machine). This can then lead to a website owner being able to profile an individual user’s browsing habits – and all potentially done without the knowledge, or consent, of the user.
Most browsers can be set to prevent cookies being downloaded onto a PC. You can look into the cookie or Temporary Internet folder of your PC and see if you can identify a cookie placed by your site. Cookies often, but not always, contain site names. However, if you turn off the cookies, some websites may not work properly.
Disclosure to Third Parties
Transition Architects does not share personal data provided by visitors of Transition Architects web site with external third parties unless explicitly requested by the visitor. We sometime provide information to other companies that work on our behalf in order to help deliver publications or services as requested by a visitor or to facilitate the purpose for which the personal data was received. Transition Architects website is hosted on servers owned and operated by a third party. These third party agents are required to keep personal information confidential and are prohibited from using it for any unrelated purpose.
Transition Architects does not use personal data collected from its websites to facilitate unsolicited marketing activities.
Please be aware that it is possible that personal data you provide to Transition Architects may be subject to disclosure under the law (e.g., pursuant to a statutory provision, a court order, or a subpoena) or in case Transition Architects needs to defend its rights.
In case you chose to be on a mailing list for periodic newsletter updates regarding Transition Architects services, you can send a notification to email@example.com if you no longer want to receive such communications. We will make reasonably efforts to honor your choice and refrain from sending you such announcements in the future as soon as possible.
Security of Your Personal Data
Transition Architects takes various organizational and technical steps to protect your personal data from unauthorized or unintended use or disclosure. However, you should note that no transfer of data over the internet is completely secure. While we use reasonable efforts to protect personal data under our control, when data is transferred over the Internet it may potentially be accessed and used by unauthorized parties. Transition Architects has no control over the performance or security of the Internet and does not warrant that any communication through the Internet is secure and is not liable for any damages resulting from a data breach due to any reason beyond Transition Architects reasonable control.
