Privacy Policy

Statêra is committed to protecting your privacy. We have prepared this Privacy Policy to describe our practices regarding the personal information (as defined below) we may collect from users of our website, located at: statera.com (the “Site”).

1. Questions; Contacting Company; Reporting Violations. If you have any questions or concerns or complaints about our Privacy Policy or our data collection or processing practices, or if you want to report any security violations to us, please contact us at [email protected].

2. A Note to Users Outside the United States. If you are a non-U.S. user of the Site, by visiting the Site and providing us with data, you acknowledge and agree that your personal information may be processed for the purposes identified in the Privacy Policy. In addition, your personal information may be processed in the country in which it was collected and in other countries, including the United States, where laws regarding processing of personal information may be less stringent than the laws in your country. By providing your data, you consent to such transfer.

3. Types of Data We Collect. We collect personal information from users, as described below.

(a) Information You Provide to Us.

We may collect personal information from you, such as your first and last name, e-mail and mailing addresses. In certain circumstances, we may collect your date of birth, social security number, taxpayer identification number, and government issued ID in order to provide services, payment processing and to verify your identity. When connecting to our Site via a service provider that uniquely identifies your mobile device, we may receive this identification and use it to offer extended services and/or functionality. When you enter into a transaction with us using the Site, we may collect all information necessary to complete the transaction, including your name, credit card information, and billing information. If you provide feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail.

We also collect other types of personal information that you provide to us voluntarily via the Site. We may also collect personal information at other points in our Site that state that personal information is being collected.

(b) Information Collected via Technology.

Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about our Site user base as a whole, and better tailor our Site and services we offer to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements or other information appropriate to your interests. Except as noted in this Privacy Policy, we do not link this automatically-collected data to personal information.

Cookies. Like many websites, we use cookies to collect information. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Site. This type of information is collected to make the Site more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.

Pixel Tags. In addition, we may use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, which are used to track online movements of Web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to help ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user. We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to our users’ personal information.

Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics to help analyze how users use the Site. Google Analytics uses Cookies to collect information such as how often users visit the Site, what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our Site and Services. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Site, rather than your name or other personally identifying information. We do not combine the information generated through the use of Google Analytics with your personal information. Although Google Analytics plants a persistent Cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Site, the Cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy.

4. Use of Your Personal Information

(a) General Use. In general, personal information you submit to us through our Site is used either to respond to requests that you make, or to aid us in serving you better. We use this personal information in the following ways:

Provide the services you request; improve the quality of experience when you interact with our Site and Services; respond to your inquiries related to employment opportunities or other requests; make telephone calls to you, from time to time, as a part of secondary fraud protection or to solicit your feedback; and send newsletters, surveys, offers, and other promotional materials related to our services and for other marketing purposes of Company.

(b) User Testimonials and Feedback. We often receive testimonials and comments from users who have had positive experiences with our services. We occasionally publish such content. When we publish this content, we may identify our users by their first and last name and may also indicate their home city. We obtain the user’s consent prior to posting his or her name along with the testimonial. We may post user feedback on the Site from time to time. We will share your feedback with your first name and last initial only. If we choose to post your first and last name along with your feedback, we will obtain your consent prior to posting you name with your feedback. If you make any comments on a blog or forum associated with your Site, you should be aware that any personal information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these blogs and forums.

(c) Creation of Anonymous Data. We may create anonymous data records from personal information by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We use this anonymous data to analyze request and usage patterns so that we may enhance the content of our services and improve Site navigation. We reserve the right to use anonymous data for any purpose and disclose anonymous data to third parties in our sole discretion.

5. Disclosure of Your Personal Information. We disclose your personal information as described below and as described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy.

(c) Affiliates. We may share some or all of your personal information with subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control (“Affiliates”), in which case we will require our Affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy.

(d) Corporate Restructuring. We may share some or all of your personal information in connection with or during negotiation of any merger, financing, acquisition or dissolution transaction or proceeding involving sale, transfer, divestiture, or disclosure of all or a portion of our business or assets. In the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, personal information may also be transferred as a business asset. If another company acquires our company, business, or assets, that company will possess the personal information collected by us and will assume the rights and obligations regarding your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

(e) Other Disclosures. Regardless of any choices you make regarding your personal information (as described below), Statêra may disclose personal information if it believes in good faith that such disclosure is necessary (a) in connection with any legal investigation; (b) to comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas, warrants or other legal process served on Statêra; (c) to protect or defend the rights or property of Statêra or users of the Site or our services; and/or (d) to investigate or assist in preventing any violation or potential violation of the law, this Privacy Policy, or our Terms of Use.

6. Third Party Websites. Our Site may contain links to third party websites. When you click on a link to any other website or location, you will leave our Site and go to another site, and another entity may collect personal information or anonymous data from you. We have no control over, do not review, and cannot be responsible for, these outside websites or their content. Please be aware that the terms of this Privacy Policy do not apply to these outside websites or content, or to any collection of your personal information after you click on links to such outside websites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of every website you visit. The links to third party websites or locations are for your convenience and do not signify our endorsement of such third parties or their products, content or websites.

Despite your indicated e-mail preferences, we may send you service related communications, including notices of any updates to our Terms of Use or Privacy Policy.

(b) Cookies. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to accept Cookies from our Site for any of the purposes described above, then you can instruct your Internet browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting Cookies or to prompt you before accepting a Cookie from the websites you visit. Consult your browser’s technical information. If you do not accept Cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Site or all functionality of the Site. If you have questions about how to disable or modify Cookies, please let us know at the contact information provided below.

(c) Changing or Deleting Your Personal Information. You may change any of your personal information by sending an e-mail to us at the e-mail address [email protected] You may request deletion of your personal information by us, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request, but please note that we may be required to keep such information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete any information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives. We may also retain your information for fraud prevention or similar or like purposes.

(d) Do Not Track Signals. Some Internet browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which the browser communicates. There currently is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. While we give you choices described in this Policy, we currently do not take any action in response to these signals. If and when a standard is established, we may revise this Policy with respect to responding to these signals.

8. Security of Your Personal Information. Statêra is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while Statêra uses reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, Statêra cannot guarantee its absolute security.

9. Changes to This Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is subject to occasional revision, and if we make any material changes in the way we use your personal information, we will notify you by sending you an e-mail to the last e-mail address you provided to us and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes on our Site.
