Privacy and Security Policy
We at Aromase take your privacy seriously and we are committed to
respecting and protecting your privacy.
This policy does not apply to websites or practices of companies that Aromase does not own or control, or to individuals that Aromase does not employ or manage, including providers of third party software or content.
Information You Provide to Us
We receive and store any information you knowingly enter on the Services, whether via computer, mobile phone, other wireless device, or that you provide to us in any other way. This includes information provided in your registration process or that you may submit for the purpose of paying for our Services. This information may include, without limitation, personal information such as your name, user name, email address, phone number, billing and financial information corresponding method of payment (e.g. a credit card number and expiration date or a bank account number), and any other information necessary for us to provide our Services (“Personal Information”).
Information Collected Automatically
We receive and store certain types of usage information whenever you interact with the Services; this information is not Personal Information. For example, Aromase automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, Aromase cookie information, and the page you requested. We also record the details of your activity on the Services, and the number and frequency of visitors to our site and its components.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer or mobile device to enable our systems to recognize your computer or device and tell us how and when pages in our site are visited and by how many people. Aromase cookies do not collect Personal Information, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other Personal Information to tell us who you are or what your user name or email address is. Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. We strongly recommend that you leave the cookies activated, however, because you may not be able to log in or use many of the Services’ most attractive features without cookies enabled. The Services may also contain electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how the Services are used.
What We May Use It For
When you use the Services, you may set up your personal information, send messages, perform searches and queries, and transmit information through various channels, depending on the category of user (“User Category”) you are registered as, and as permitted by the functionality of the Services. The information we gather from users enables us to personalize and improve our services, and allows users to set up a user account and profile through the Services.
- Personal Information
The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain information and services, customizing your experience, and communicating with you about the Services. We also use Personal Information for creating your individual account, customizing your experience, and for sending you notifications via the Services (“Notifications”).
- Payment Information
- Your email address
If you provide us your email address, we may send you email communications. Web beacons may also be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails (and which links within those emails) have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications.
- Usage Information
Aromase uses this type of aggregate data to enable us to figure out how often users use parts of the Services, so that we can make the Services appealing and relevant to as many users as possible, and customize and improve those Services. As part of our use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners (in a non-personally-identifiable format) about how our users use our site.
We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use our partners’ services and the Services to help provide you with an optimal online experience. We may link usage information to Personal Information that we collect through the Services, but we will only use this linked information internally (for example, to customize your experience), and will not disclose it in linked format to third parties.
- Resale of Personal Information
We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information; we may share your Personal Information and – in personally identifiable form only as described below. Again, please note that references to “Personal Information”.
We 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. Examples include sending email, analyzing data, processing payment, and providing user services. Unless we tell you differently, Aromase’s agents do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
- Protection of Aromase and Others
We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law (such as to comply with a subpoena); enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Aromase, our employees, our users, or others. We will use our best efforts to give you notice if we release information for these reasons, but we reserve the right not to so if it imposes an undue burden or expense, requires us to release confidential commercial information, or requires the disclosure of information relating to another person.
We also use coding practices which take steps to prevent attack on our Services from web browsers and malicious scripts, by processing all actions through several permission verifications checks.
Aromase endeavors to keep your information private; however, we cannot guarantee security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information.
- Policy Changes
We may make changes to this Privacy and Security Policy from time to time for any reason. We will provide notification of the material changes to this Privacy Statement through our website at least thirty (30) business days prior to the change taking effect. Use of information we collect is subject to the Privacy and Security Policy in effect at the time such information is collected. Users are bound by any changes to the Privacy and Security Policy when he or she uses the Services.
