Privacy Statement

Leszynski Group is committed to protecting your privacy. This privacy statement explains data collection and use in those situations when we need information to provide services that you request from us using or affiliated Leszynski Group-owned sites (a "Site", collectively "Sites").

Personal Information

A Site may ask you for information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are registering for email newsletters, signing up for an event or training, or when purchasing and/or registering Leszynski Group products. Personal information collected by a Site is generally limited to name, email address, language, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide a service you have requested.

For example: If you choose a service or transaction that requires payment, such as an electronic commerce purchase from a Site, we will request personal information necessary for billing and/or shipping, such as: name, physical address, telephone number, email address, banking information, and/or credit card number.

When you buy and install a new product, we may ask you to register your purchase electronically. We keep this registration information on file with any information you've already given us on previous visits to a Site.

A Site may also collect certain information about your computer hardware and software. This information may include: your IP address, browser type, operating system, domain name, access times, and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the Site, to maintain quality of service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of a Site.

A Site may also collect information about which pages you visit. This Site visitation data is identified only by a unique ID number, and it is never linked with personal information unless a user consents as described below.

Use of Personal Information

We may use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • To ensure a Site is relevant to your needs.

  • To deliver services, such as newsletters, events, training or software, that you request or purchase.

  • To help us create and publish content most relevant to you.

  • To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information, and other new services from Leszynski Group, if you so request.

  • To allow you access to limited-entry areas of a Site as appropriate.

We may merge Site-visitation data with anonymous demographic information for research purposes, and we may use this information in aggregate to provide more relevant content. In some limited-entry sections of a Site, with your approval, we may combine Site-visitation data with your personal information in order to provide you with personalized content. If you decline permission, we will not provide you the personalized service and won’t merge your personal information with Site-visitation data.

We may occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail, and/or processing event registration. We will only provide those companies with the information they need to deliver the service, and they will be prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Leszynski Group or a Site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Leszynski Group and its family of Sites, or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Leszynski Group employees, users of Leszynski Group products or services, or members of the public.

Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Leszynski Group or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using this Site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

Control of Personal Information

When you register, or otherwise give us personal information, we will not share that information with third parties without your permission, other than for the limited exceptions already listed herein.

Registering with a Site may allow you to tell us how or whether you want us to communicate with you. You can tell us not to contact you by configuring your profile on a Site or by email as described at the bottom of this statement. If you buy software through a Site, and do not want to receive such information, do not check the box on the Checkout page (or on other pages where personal information is collected) which says this or similar: I would like to receive other offers from Leszynski Group.

We may send out periodic emails informing you of technical service or security issues related to a product or service you own or requested, or confirming that you requested a product or service. You will not be able to choose to unsubscribe to these mailings, as they are considered an essential part of the service you have chosen.

Access to Personal Information

We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. If you register on a Site or subscribe to a newsletter, you can review and edit your personal information on your online profile on the Site. Some services offered on a Site may collect information that is not accessible via the online profile. However, in such cases, you can access your personal information by contacting Leszynski Group as described at the bottom of this statement, or through alternative means of access described by the service.

Security of Personal Information

We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies, procedures, and best practices to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide in computer servers with limited access that are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit sensitive information (such as a credit card number) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Use of Cookies

When someone visits a Site, a cookie may be placed on the visitor's machine (if the visitor accepts cookies) or is read if the visitor has visited the Site previously. One use of cookies is to assist in the collection of the Site visitation statistics described above.

We may also use cookies to collect information on which newsletter links are clicked by visitors. This information is used to ensure we are sending out the information that our visitors want to read; it is collected in aggregate form and never linked with your personal information.

Web beacons, also known as clear gif technology, or action tags, may be used to assist in delivering a cookie on a Site. This technology tells us how many visitors clicked on key elements (such as links or graphics) on a Site page. We do not use this technology to access your personally identifiable information on a Site; it is a tool we use to compile aggregated statistics about Site usage. We may share aggregated Site statistics with partner companies but do not allow other companies to place clear gifs on our Sites.

If you choose to not have your browser accept cookies from a Site, you will be able to view the text onscreen, however you may not experience a personalized visit nor will you be able to subscribe to the service offerings on the Site.
