PRIVACY POLICY

Your privacy, and the privacy of all users of the Evoqu service, the evoqu.com website and our mobile applications (collectively, the “Service”), is important to us. Accordingly, we have adopted the following privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”). This Privacy Policy tells you, among other things, what information we gather from you, how we may use or disclose information that identifies you personally (“Personal Information”) and our efforts to protect it. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully, and feel free to contact us at contracts@evoqu.com if you have any questions regarding its contents. Please note that Evoqu provides links to third-party websites. This policy does not apply to the websites that you reach through those links. We are not responsible for, nor can we control the privacy practices and policies of these third party entities. We encourage you to review their policies carefully.

By visiting or using the Service, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you hereby consent that we will collect, use, and share your information in the following ways.

Types of Information We Collect

In connection with your use of our site and our mobile applications, we may collect a variety of information from and about you in different ways. This includes:

  • Information you provide to us such as the information you provide when you register to use our service, give us your contact information, create a profile on our site, or register to receive newsletters, alerts, or any products or services we provide via our site or through our mobile applications.
  • Information we collect automatically as you use the site or our mobile applications, such as your IP address, the referring URL, browser type, and information about your usage of the site or our mobile applications, whether links to external websites are followed, and whether advertisements provided to you are clicked.

We use cookies, which are small data files that we send to your browser for storage on your computer’s hard drive, to identify you as a user, store your preferences, track activity at our site and better serve your needs and interests. Cookies can be deleted or blocked by changing the settings on your Web browser, but if you block all cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of the Evoqu services. Our advertising partners may also transmit cookies to your computer, when you click on ads that appear on our site. This Privacy Policy does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Evoqu does not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13.

Our Use of Your Personal Information

We use Personal Information to:

  • Provide to you and communicate with you about the Service, content, or products you use or request
  • Customize the content or advertisements you receive when you use our Service, and otherwise improve your experience on our Service
  • Analyze and improve our Service, which may include tracking traffic, usage, and navigation patterns related to your activities on our sites and the links we provide to third party sites or advertisements
  • Secure your account and prevent fraud
  • Protect our or third party rights or interests

Sharing Information with Third Parties

  • We may share information that is not Personal Information and that does not identify you personally about your interests, your use of the Service, and the links and ads that you follow, with third party content providers or advertisers; if we do so, we will not provide them with your name or contact information. We may also share aggregated usage data with such parties, and with others.
  • We may share Personal Information with our business partners in order to provide you the services you use or request, subject to commitments by such parties to use your information only for that purpose and to protect it from disclosure.
  • We may share Personal Information in response to a valid law enforcement request or legal process, to protect our rights and property or those of third parties, or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
  • We may transfer Personal Information if we sell some or all of our assets to another company in connection with a business merger or acquisition. We will require the recipient to notify you in advance of any material changes to the way in which Personal Information will be used, and to give you the opportunity to opt-out of any such materially changed use.
  • We sometimes employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

Sharing by You

  • Remember that any public content that you voluntarily submit by posting to our Service can be accessed by any other Evoqu user.
  • We allow you to make the choice to share private content you create or store on “nonpublic,” secure sections of Evoqu (such as your private watchlist) with specific third parties of your choosing. You may do this by emailing such parties a link that provides them with access to the specific private content you want to share, or by creating a shared link with that person; that link will not provide access to the rest of your private content. If you use one of the helpful Evoqu features designed to allow you to voluntarily forward or share your private content with family or friends, you automatically limit Evoqu’s ability to keep that shared information private. We recommend that you do this only with trusted friends and family.

Accessing Your Personal Information

As a Evoqu user, you will have the opportunity to review and modify the information stored in your personal account any time you log onto your Evoqu account.

Protecting Your Information

We take the security of your personal information very seriously, and have implemented policies and procedures, including technical measures, that are designed to help safeguard it.

Please remember that you play a valuable part in security as well.

We endeavor to the privacy of your Personal Information we hold in our records, but we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.

Your Choices

You can always opt not to disclose information to us, but keep in mind some information may be needed to take advantage of some of our special features. You may be able to add or update certain information as explained above. You may request deletion of your personal account by sending an e-mail to contracts@evoqu.com. Please note that some information may remain in our private records after deletion of your personal account.

Changes to Privacy Policy

It may be necessary from time to time for us to modify this policy to reflect changes in the way we collect and use information or changes in privacy-related laws, regulations, and industry standards. Accordingly, we reserve the right to change this policy at any time by posting the revised policy on this website. Non-material changes and clarifications will take effect immediately, and material changes will take effect within 30 days of their posting on this site. We encourage you to refer to this policy on an ongoing basis so that you understand our current privacy policy.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, please send us a detailed message to contracts@evoqu.com. We will make every effort to resolve your concerns.
