Swizznet Privacy Policy: Use of Your Personal Information

SWIZZNET collects and uses your personal information to operate and improve its sites and services. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the sites or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and technologies.

We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. We may also occasionally send you product surveys or promotional mailings to inform you of other products or services available from SWIZZNET and its affiliates.

Behavioral Tracking and Advertising

SWIZZNET does not currently offer targeted advertising (or any online advertising) through our website, nor does SWIZZNET have any intention to do so.  As such, we do not currently support any browser based Do Not Track (DNT) settings or participate in any DNT frameworks, and we do not assign any meaning to any potential DNT track signals you may send or alter any of our data collection or use practices in response to such signals.

General Collection and Use of Your Information.

SWIZZNET uses cookies and other similar technologies on its website to (i) to enable you to access and use the website and our services; (ii) to enable us to identify you and the computer you use for security purposes; (iii) to operate, protect, improve and optimize our website, our services, our business, and our users’ experience, such as to perform analytics, conduct research, and for advertising and marketing; (iv) to help create and maintain a trusted and safer environment on the website, including detection and prevention of unauthorized access, intrusion, and service interruption; (v) to conduct investigations and to respond to disputes between users, refund requests and other similar customer support service;  (vi) to send you service, support and administrative messages, reminders, technical notices, updates, security alerts, and information requested by you; (vii) where we have your consent, to send you our newsletter, marketing and promotional messages and other information that may be of interest to you; and (viii) to comply with our legal obligations or requests from law enforcement agencies, resolve any disputes that we may have with any of our users, and enforce our agreements with third parties.

Accessing Your Personal Information

You will have the ability to view or edit certain personal information online. In order to help prevent your personal information from being viewed by others, you will be required to sign in with your credentials (log on name and password). You are responsible for creating and maintaining passwords on all of your QuickBooks files on the system.

It is your responsibility to keep your passwords confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.

Security of Your Personal Information

SWIZZNET is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number or password) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption.

Sharing of Your Information

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those service providers will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose. However, for credit card processing, our fraud detection vendors may use aggregate data to help improve their service. This helps them more accurately detect fraudulent uses of credit cards. We may access or disclose information about you, including the content of your communications, in order to: (a) comply with the law or respond to lawful requests or legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of SWIZZNET or our customers, including the enforcement of our agreements or policies governing your use of the services; or (c) act on a good faith belief that such access or disclosure is necessary to protect the personal safety of SWIZZNET employees, customers or the public.

Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal information outside of SWIZZNET and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your consent.
