This policy pertains to information obtained from your activity on the ShoreGroup website (www.shoregroup.com and linked pages residing on this site). ShoreGroup highly values the personal privacy of its customers and we are committed to making your experience with our company a pleasant and memorable one.
We at ShoreGroup believe that you should know what information we collect from you as well as how that information is used, disclosed and protected. We have created this policy statement (the “Policy”) to explain our privacy practices and policies. When you provide any personal or company information to ShoreGroup, you should understand when and how personal information is collected, used, disclosed and protected — which this Policy does.
What type of information does ShoreGroup collect on this site?
ShoreGroup gathers customer information needed to provide superior service, communicate offers on solutions and services which we believe will be of interest to you, to reply to your requests, and to administer our business. In order to best serve you, we may gather information from you in a few instances. First, when you visit our site, we may collect non-personally identifiable information from you. Through the use of computer “cookies” we collect data, such as your IP address, browser type, domain name, and specific ShoreGroup.com web pages through which you click. This data is collected automatically and utilized in aggregate to help us look for trends so that we can improve our website and your ShoreGroup.com experience. Additional information regarding computer cookies and how to disable them is described below. Second, we may ask you to voluntarily provide information in a few circumstances. When you send ShoreGroup an e-mail or generate a request or response through the contact functions of our site, we will receive your e-mail address and may ask you to voluntarily provide certain personally identifiable information, such as your name, address and telephone number that we need to provide a response or fulfill your request. Other examples of when we may ask you to voluntarily provide personally identifiable information include: (1) if you subscribe to our e-mail program (information such as your name and e-mail address); (2) choose to provide us preference information (such as solution interests, product preferences); (3) solutions or services purchased (if an existing customer); (4) are registering for a seminar or other ShoreGroup function; or (5) responding to a promotion shown on the site.
How does ShoreGroup use your personal information?
ShoreGroup uses your information for internal purposes relating to the sales and service of ShoreGroup solutions. ShoreGroup does not rent or sell customer information to outside marketers.
Storage of Information
ShoreGroup may store some information on the visitor’s computer in the form of a cookie or similar file. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by the browser on your hard drive. The cookies that ShoreGroup uses do not contain any personally identifying information, such as your name, or other sensitive information, such as your credit card number. The cookies allow us to recognize you when you return to our site and to provide you with a customized experience that we feel will be of value to you. For example, these files may allow us to tailor your ShoreGroup.com experience to reflect your expressed interests and preferences. You may still use ShoreGroup’s website if you have erased or blocked ShoreGroup cookies.
Receipt of Promotional Information & Materials
ShoreGroup may send you e-mails with promotional offers that we feel may interest you only if you opt in to receiving such e-mails. If you would no longer like to receive e-mailed special event information, sales notifications or other messages from ShoreGroup, follow the instructions in the e-mail to opt out or click here to submit your request through our Contact page. Your e-mail address will be removed from our marketing list.
The security of your personal information is important to ShoreGroup. To protect your personal information from unauthorized disclosure, ShoreGroup does the following: (1) limits access to those employees with a valid business reason for using that information; (2) takes various information security measures; and (3) provides training to employees about the importance of keeping your information secure. Further, to access secured customer or channel pages on this site, you must use a browser that is SSL-compliant and has a “secure mode”. Nonetheless, it is important to note that while ShoreGroup will take the above described measures, it does not guarantee the security of your personal information. Moreover, the following are circumstances that may threaten the security of your personal information: employee error, employee misconduct and outsider attack (either in person or electronically), which, along with other circumstances, are beyond ShoreGroup’s control.
Updating this Policy
ShoreGroup will revise or update this Policy if our practices change, as we change existing or add new services, or as we develop better ways to inform you of solutions we think are of interest. If you would like to learn of such updates you should refer back to this page for the latest information. If, however, your personally identifiable information will be used in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via posting on this page for 30 days before the material change is made. Users will have a choice as to whether or not their information will be used in this materially different manner.
Bankruptcy and Asset Sales
In the unlikely event of ShoreGroup bankruptcy or asset sale, your personal information will be treated as an asset of ShoreGroup. Hence, your personal information may be disclosed to qualified third-parties in the event of a bankruptcy or asset sale.
Law Enforcement Issues
ShoreGroup will disclose your personal information to law enforcement officials only when required by law to do so or in the event of emergencies.
We want to ensure that you understand what information we gather about you, how we use it, and the safeguards we have in place in order to protect it. If you have additional questions or would like further information on this topic, please contact us. We may update this policy from time to time. Please check our policy periodically for changes.
