We may also collect information relating to your use of our websites, product and service offerings through the use of various technologies. For example, when you visit our websites or access our product and service offerings, we may log certain information that your browser sends us, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access time, and referring website addresses, and we may collect information about the pages you view within our sites and other actions you take while visiting us.

Collecting information in this manner allows us to collect statistics about the usage and effectiveness of our websites, our software products and our product and service offerings, personalize your experience and tailor our interactions with you.

How Do We Protect Your Personal Data?
The security of your personal data is important to us and we intend to protect your personal data and to maintain its accuracy.
Tectrade implements reasonable physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to help us protect your personal data from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. We also require that our suppliers protect such information from unauthorized access, use and disclosure.
Unfortunately, no method of data transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, can be guaranteed as 100% secure. As a result, whilst we strive to protect your personal data, we cannot ensure and do not warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and this information is transmitted at your own risk.
If you have any questions about security on our websites or the services offered by Tectrade through the websites, please contact us using the contact information below.
Emails are usually sent using sender email addresses at: @tectrade.com or @us.tectrade.com. If you receive any suspicious activity, for example, an email which claims to come from us but does not use these domains, or if you are suspicious that an email may not be approved by us, then please report this by sending a copy of the email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CORRECTING AND REMOVING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
You may correct, update, amend or remove your personal data at any time. In certain cases, you may have the ability to view or edit your personal data online. In the event your information is not accessible online, and you wish to obtain a copy of particular information you provided to Tectrade, or if you become aware the information is incorrect and you would like us to correct it, please contact us by sending an email to email@example.com or by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below.

RETENTION OF PERSONAL DATA
If you delete your information from any of the Tectrade website (or related sites, apps, and services) including but not limited to any mobile applications or request that your information be deleted, we still may retain some information that you have provided to us to maintain the foregoing or to comply with relevant laws.
AGGREGATION OF PERSONAL DATA
When you access our Service, we may automatically collect non-personally identifiable information from you, such as IP host address, web pages viewed, browser type, operating system, referring service, search information, device type, page views, usage and browsing habits on the Tectrade website (or related sites, apps, and services) and similar data. We may also aggregate demographic information collected from our users (such as the number of users in a particular geographical location) in a manner which does not identify any one individual. We may also aggregate information collected offline in connection with the foregoing, obtain non-personally identifiable information from third party sources and develop aggregate information by anonymizing previously collected personally identifiable information. Additionally, we may combine aggregate information from the pixel tags, event tracking (e.g., clicks, scrolling behavior, “contact us” behavior, “chat” behavior, etc.), web beacons, and cookies with similar data we collect from other visitors to help us improve our Service. When doing so, we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the any aggregated information cannot be linked back to you.
It is possible at times when collecting non-personally identifiable information through automatic means that we may unintentionally collect or receive personally identifiable information that is mixed in with the non-personally identifiable information. While we will make reasonable efforts to prevent such incidental data collection, the possibility still exists. If you believe that we have inadvertently collected your personal information, please notify us at email@example.com.
We may share or disclose aggregated personal data or non-personal information with service providers or with other persons we conduct business with, including but not limited potential third-parties for the purpose of showcasing the performance of the Tectrade website (or related sites, apps, and services). These service providers and other persons may also share with us aggregated non-personal information that they have independently developed or acquired.
COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES
Tectrade collects information from your visits to our websites and your use of our service offerings and our software products to help us gather statistics about usage and effectiveness, personalize your experience, and tailor our interactions with you. We do so using various technologies, including scripts, tags, Local Shared Objects (Flash cookies), Local Storage (HTML5) beacons, and “cookies”. A cookie is a piece of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as a tag that identifies your computer. While cookies are often only used to measure website usage (such as number of users and duration of visit) and effectiveness (such as topics users are most interested in) and to allow for ease of navigation or use and, as such, are not associated with any personal data, they are also used at times to personalize a known user’s experience to a website by being associated with profile information or user preferences. Over time this information provides valuable insight to help improve the user experience.
Cookies are typically categorized as “session” cookies or “persistent” cookies. Session cookies help you navigate through the websites efficiently, keeping track of your progression from page to page so that you are not asked for information you have already provided during the current visit. Session cookies are stored in temporary memory and erased when the web browser is closed. Persistent cookies, on the other hand, store user preferences for current and successive visits. They are written on your device’s hard disk and are still valid when you restart your browser. We use persistent cookies, for example, to record your choice of language and country location.
While Tectrade websites at this time do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, such as “do not track” instructions, you can generally express your privacy preferences regarding the use of most cookies and similar technologies through your web browser. Look under the heading “Tools” (or similar heading) in your browser for information about controlling cookies. You can set your browser in most instances to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it or not. You can also generally set your browser to turn off cookies. If you block, turn off or otherwise reject our cookies, some web pages may not display properly, and you may not be able to use any website services that require you to sign in.
Tectrade does not deliver third party online advertisements on our websites but we advertise our products and services on others’ websites. Please familiarize yourself with those website operators’ or network advertisers’ privacy policies to understand their practices relating to advertising, including what type of information they may collect about your Internet usage. Some advertising networks we may use may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA). Individuals may opt-out of targeted advertising delivered by NAI or EDAA member ad networks by visiting http://www.networkadvertising.org and http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/
