CoreStreet, Ltd. Privacy Statement
CoreStreet, Ltd. is sensitive to privacy issues and is committed to protecting your privacy interests in personal information you share with us. This Privacy Statement describes the ways we collect and use information gathered from visitors to our Web site and information you may provide to us.
Information Collection & Use
In general, visitors may browse CoreStreet's web site to access information while remaining anonymous and not revealing any personal information. While we do not require visitors to register or provide any personal information (such as name, addresses, other contact information, occupation and the like), we generally log the IP address of computers connecting to our web site to assist us in understanding the locations of interest to visitors and assisting us in improving our web site. In addition, we may use common technologies such as cookies, web logs, web beacons and other tools to collect information about how visitors use the web site (which are described in greater detail below). We do not link these IP addresses, cookies and the like to personal information unless the visitor has previously registered with us.
There are times, however, that we will ask those visiting the site to provide certain personal information so that we may better understand who is visiting the site and enabling us to improve the experience of the visitor by modifying our site or to enable us to provide news and information regarding products and services in which the visitor might be interested. We collect personal information when you register with CoreStreet to receive a newsletter or product information, be added to a mailing list, participate in a survey, register for a seminar or appointment or other event at a trade show, participate in promotions, or provide your personal information for another reason. Visitors who are downloading our products or other materials, or registering to obtain services (such as maintenance and support), may be required to provide personal information as part of a contract or similar understanding between CoreStreet and the visitor or the visitor's employer or other contracting party. We will inform you at the point of collection of personal information of the purpose for such collection, unless the purpose for collecting personal information is not self-evident (such as subscribing for a newsletter or registering for product support). We also may receive personal information from business partners and others with whom we do business.
CoreStreet uses personal information for a variety of reasons, including: delivering information regarding our products and services, and products and services of our business partners; shipping (or making available for download) our products; providing information regarding our products, such as new releases and updates; soliciting input with respect to products, needs and concerns of customers and others to help us and our business partners improve and market our products and services; delivering newsletters and other information that you have requested or that we feel may be of interest; to announce special promotions, events and other developments, and provide other information regarding our company, our products and services and our business partners that we feel may be of interest.
We will generally provide visitors to our web site and others for whom we obtain personal information to “opt in” to groups receiving newsletters, product information or other direct marketing from us, which means that you will be given the opportunity to agree in advance to receive such information. If you ever receive information that you did not agree to receive, or wish to cease receiving information you previously agreed to receive, you may contact us to “opt out” of the groups receiving such information. Unless we receive your indication that you wish to opt out of receiving certain information by following the procedure outlined below, we will assume that you agree to receive such information and permit us to use your personal information in connection with delivering such information and the terms of this Privacy Statement, in accordance with terms herein.
CoreStreet may retain information collected, including visitor's personal information, for an indefinite period. We intend to only use such personal information in accordance with this Privacy Statement and applicable laws, and such other provisions that may be applicable to the acquisition of a particular product or service. Any person may request that CoreStreet delete or modify any personal information retained by CoreStreet by following the procedure outlined below, subject to any contractual or other legal right CoreStreet may have to retain such information, including, without limitation, in connection with tracking product deliveries and services provided.
Disclosing Personal Information
CoreStreet conducts business throughout the world, so CoreStreet personnel in multiple countries may have access to and process personal information. All CoreStreet personnel are governed by this Privacy Statement when exposed to or in control of personal information, in addition to applicable nondisclosure and other agreements and applicable laws. We also engage in business transactions, including product offering and sales, and related services, with third parties who are contractors and independent parties, although we endeavor to limit any such disclosures to the minimum amount necessary to accomplish the purpose for the disclosure (for example, contact person name and address to a shipping company to enable a product delivery). CoreStreet shares personal information with such parties in a variety of situations, including: wherever we have consent to provide such information; where sharing personal information is necessary to respond to product or service inquiries, or to deliver product or services; for the purpose of a cooperative marketing, educational or sales effort; and as necessary to comply with legal requirements. CoreStreet does not sell or rent the personal information it collects, and is not shared with third parties except as described in this Privacy Statement. If, however, CoreStreet were to engage in a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, the personal information will likely be among the assets transferred.
The security of personal information is important to us. We pursue generally accepted industry standards to protect personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we have received it. Certain information you provide to us is protected by passwords to protect your ability to access such information. However, while we endeavour to protect personal information, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee its absolute security and therefore urge all visitors to our web site to investigate their policies for providing personal information and take precautions to reduce the risk of inadvertent disclosure.
Accessing, Updating or Opting Out
We depend upon assistance from you to enable us to maintain accurate personal information. Please notify us of any changes to your personal information. Some areas of our site that request personal information enable the user to update entered information directly online through the same interface. Alternatively, any visitor may request changes to personal information or the manner in which CoreStreet uses their personal information by sending an email to or a letter to the address set forth below. Newsletters and other email should also include instructions to unsubscribe from that particular mailing. CoreStreet may in its discretion retain personal information to comply with legal requirements, maintain an archive of corporate information, resolve disputes and problems and enforce agreements, notwithstanding any request to delete personal information.
Links to Third Party Sites
Our web site contains links to other sites that we neither own nor control. We do not share personal information with such sites (except in the manner discussed in this Privacy Statement), and we may not be aware and do not have any responsibility for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.
Children and Privacy
We do not target and are not intending to attract children under the age of 13 to our web site. Further, CoreStreet does not knowingly solicit personal information from children under the age of 13 or send them requests for personal information. If we learn that we have collected personal information of a child under the age of 13, we will delete that data from our systems.
Changes in this Privacy Statement
We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Statement from time to time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this Statement affecting the manner in which we use personal information, we will describe those changes in a notice on this web site.
