Flashmaps Data Privacy Protection Policy
Flashmaps Commitment to Data Privacy Protection
Protecting the security and privacy of your Personal Information is important to Flashmaps Geospatial (Flashmaps) and to the way we conduct our business in compliance with laws on privacy, data protection and data security in the countries in which we maintain Web sites. We hope the policy outlined below will help you understand what information Flashmaps may collect, how Flashmaps uses and safeguards that information and with whom we may share it.
Through our Web sites, Flashmaps will not collect any personally-identifiable information about you (e.g., your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address ("Personal Information")), unless you voluntarily choose to provide it to us (e.g., by registration, survey).
If you do not want your Personal Information collected, please refrain from submitting it to us. When you do provide us with Personal Information, we usually use it to respond to your inquiry, process your order or provide you access to specific account information. In order to better assist our customer relationships we reserve the right do one of the following:
- If Personal Information is submitted, we may share it with our worldwide affiliates to better understand your business needs so that we can improve our products and services; or
- We (or a third party on our behalf) may use Personal Information to contact you regarding future Flashmaps's services, so as to support your business needs. We may also conduct online surveys to better understand our customers' needs and profiles.
If you choose not to have your Personal Information used to support our customer relationship research (particularly direct-marketing or market-research), we will respect your decision. We currently do not (and do not intend to) sell, rent or otherwise market your Personal Information to third parties.
