The Internet is an amazing tool. It has the power to change the way we live. We at Automata4 Group are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of personally identifiable information you share with us.
In general, you can visit automata4.com without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We track the Internet address of the domains from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but the individual user remains anonymous.
Contrary to popular fears and misconceptions, cookies were not created to spy on or otherwise invade the privacy of Internet users. Cookies contain only information that users volunteer, and they do not have the capability of infiltrating a user's hard drive and sneaking away with personal information. The simple function of a cookie is that of helping the user navigate a web site with as little obstruction as possible.
Cookies are small data structures used by a web site (server) to deliver data to a web client (user); request that the client store the information; and in certain circumstances, return the information to the web site. Web sites can thus "remember" information about users to facilitate their preferences for a particular site and allow the use of user psswords. The web site may deliver one or more cookies to the client. The client stores cookie data in one or more flat files on its local hard drive. Cookies allow web sites to maintain user information across HTTP connections.
The current HTTP protocol is "stateless," meaning that the server does not store any information about a particular HTTP transaction; each connection is "fresh" and has no knowledge of any other HTTP transaction. "State" information is information about a communication between a user and a server, similar in many ways to frequent flyer profiles or option settings in desktop software. (For example, a preference for aisle or window seats is cookie-like information that a frequent-flyer program might store about its customers.) In some cases it is useful to maintain state information about the user across HTTP transactions.
To protect your privacy, we have adopted the following principles:
|CHOICE||There are times when we may collect personal information from you. It is our intent to inform you before we do that and to tell you what we intend to do with the information. You will have the option not to provide the information, and in the future you will be able to "opt out" of certain uses of the information. If you choose not to provide the information we request, you can still visit most of the Automata4 Group Web site, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services.|
|ACCURACY||We do our best to maintain the accuracy of personal information you supply to us; You could use our tools that will allow you to review and update your information in the future.|
|SECURITY||We will take appropriate steps to protect the information you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure.|
