Collection of Personal information
Personally identifiable information (“PII”) refers to any information about an individual maintained by an agency, including (1) any information that can be used to distinguish or trace an individual’s identity, such as name, Social Security number, date and place of birth, mother’s maiden name, or biometric records; and (2) any other information that is linked or linkable to an individual, such as medical, educational, financial, and employment information [US GAO definition from GAO-08-536 dated May 19, 2008].
Like most web sites, we use technologies such as cookies and web beacons to collect information about the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take in using the web site.
Use of Personal Information
We collect and use your information to understand your needs and provide our products and services to you, or to use the information to improve our products and services. We may use the information to customize the website according to your interests. We will never sell your information to another company or person for any reason.
Your Options for Your Personal Information
We make every effort to ensure that any retained PII is both accurate and necessary for your business relationship with Watsec. If you have any concerns about the accuracy, completeness or relevance of any PII that you have entrusted with Watsec, please contact us as soon as possible at the address listed below. We will promptly correct or delete our records as appropriate.
If you have previously consented to sharing PII with Watsec for the purposes of subscribing to regular communications from us, you may elect, at any time, to withdraw your consent and request to have such information deleted. Please email us at [email protected] or contact us in writing at the address listed below.
We take appropriate security measures to protect against the unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, including appropriate encryption and physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to the systems in which we store PII.
We restrict access to personal information to company employees, contractors and agents on a need-to-know basis. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination, as well as civil action and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
We do not guarantee that we will eliminate all risk of potential misuse of your personal information. There is no such thing as perfect security, and we cannot guarantee the security of any data (including PII) that we receive and store on our systems or on those of our service providers.
You are responsible for keeping any passwords secret to prevent unauthorized access to and use of any offerings to which you have access.
