The type of personally identifiable information we may collect from you when you choose to provide it may include, amongst other things, your: title, name, e-mail address, phone numbers, credit card number, and company name.

We may use the information you give us to help us provide better products and service and to send you information or promotional materials if you request them.

While you may opt out of personal data collection as set forth below in the “Your California Rights and Choices” Section; opting out of certain aspects can impact your use of the Services. Additionally, If you use location-related services or applications covered by this Privacy Policy, you may be provided with an opportunity to opt out of having your location information collected and/or used for certain purposes. However, if you exercise this opt out you may not be able to utilize all of the functionalities offered by those services or applications. You also may be able to limit the collection of your location information through the settings on your device


The Company may disclose personally identifiable information about you to a subsequent owner or operator of our Site if we assign our rights and obligations regarding any of your information at the time of a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or substantially all of our assets or the Site’s assets and/or services to a subsequent owner or operator. You will be deemed to have consented to the disclosure to, and use by, a subsequent owner or operator of such website, and your continued use of the Site signifies your agreement to be bound by the Privacy Policy of the Site’s subsequent owner or operator. The Company may also disclose personally identifiable information to third parties in the following instances: 1) we have been given your consent to disclose; 2) we have previously informed you of the disclosure, including by means of our Privacy Policy; 3) we are required by law or court order to disclose, or we believe in good faith that the law requires it; 4) disclosure is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against, someone who may cause or be causing harm to, or interference with, our rights or property, other Site users, or anyone else; or 5) to respond to an inquiry, request or complaint that you have made. We may also use IP addresses in cooperation with internet service providers to identify users if we deem it necessary to comply with laws, to enforce compliance with this Privacy Policy, or to protect our Site, customers, or others.


Some non-personally identifiable information is collected and stored automatically when you visit the Site. If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the Site, read pages or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. Our system collects data in the server log that may include, amongst other things:

  • IP address
  • Domain name
  • Type of browser
  • Operating system
  • Pages viewed
  • Search requests

If you linked to our Site from another web site, that web site’s address may be logged. We may aggregate this data and use it for statistical purposes. For example, the aggregated data helps us to determine the volume of our Site users’ interest in areas of our Site. It also helps us understand how we can improve the navigation and content of our Site. We may disclose this information to third parties.


Non-personal information may also be collected with the use of cookies. “Cookies” are small text files a web site can use to recognize repeat users. When someone visits the Site, a cookie is placed on the customer’s machine (only if the visitor’s web browser has been set to accept cookies) or is read if the visitor has visited the Site previously. The Company may collect aggregated Site-visitation statistics using cookies.


We will make reasonable efforts to ensure that whatever information you provide will be maintained in a secure environment. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or from our Site, and you provide such information at your own risk. Triz sites may contain links to other sites, including those of our authorized business partners. While we seek to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by other sites.
