Privacy Policy

PLEASE REVIEW THIS PRIVACY POLICY FOR THE WEBSITE CAREFULLY. YOUR USE OF THIS WEBSITE SIGNIFIES YOUR AGREEMENT TO SUCH PRIVACY POLICY.

Crystaphase is committed to the proper management of the personal information of all visitors to our Website. This privacy policy (the “Policy”) describes how we collect, use, disclose, retain and protect personal information via our Website. The Policy is incorporated into, and made a part of, the Terms and Conditions. You consent to the Terms and Conditions of the Policy through your continued use of the Website.

What is personal information?

It means any information about an identifiable individual. Generally, it does not include information on a business card or available in public records, nor does it include corporate information such as your business address or telephone number in your capacity as an employee of an organization.

Collection of personal information

We limit the amount and the type of information we collect and use to that necessary to fulfill several general purposes or as otherwise permitted or required by law:

  • to fulfill your requests
  • for services and products
  • to keep you informed and communicate with you about our products and services
  • to personalize your experience on our Website
  • to administer our records
  • to fulfill our legal and professional obligations

Your consent

By providing us with your information, you consent to its collection, use, and disclosure.

Internet server provider

Certain other information may be collected on the Website through various technologies without your actively providing the information. Our Website is hosted on servers shared with an internet service provider ("ISP"). Any information collected on our behalf by the ISP is managed in accordance with this policy and is protected by applicable law.

Certain information about internet users’ traffic patterns is passively and automatically collected and linked to users’ Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses. These unique IP addresses are assigned to all Web users by their ISPs, and are automatically logged by Internet servers. While the IP address itself does not identify an individual, it may be used, with the cooperation of the ISP, to locate and identify an individual using the Website.

Server logs

In the normal course of establishing and maintaining Internet connections, our servers automatically log information about visits to our Website. Server logs record statistical information. These statistics are reported in aggregate form to us and are used to improve our Website and ensure that it provides the optimal online experience for visitors.

Cookies

Like many other websites, our Website makes use of “per-session” cookie technology. Per-session cookies are small text files that contain a unique identification number that is automatically deposited on a visitor’s computer. These cookies track information during an open session and are stored only temporarily in your computer’s memory. This information helps us determine the total number of visitors to the site on an ongoing basis and the types of internet browsers (e.g., Google Chrome or Internet Explorer) and operating systems (e.g., Windows or Macintosh) that our visitors use. We use this information to facilitate and enhance your online visits.

The use of cookie technology is common on the internet, and many internet browsers are initially set to accept cookies automatically. If you would prefer not to accept cookies, you can set your internet browser to notify you when your computer is receiving a cookie or to refuse cookies automatically. To readjust your internet browser’s cookie options, please refer to the instruction documentation of your particular browser or seek online assistance.

Use of personal information

We use information only as described in this Policy or as otherwise permitted or required by law. If we distribute publications to people on our mailing lists, you can change your preferences or unsubscribe from our mailing lists.

Children and Data Collection

Crystaphase’s Website is a general audience site. The content on the Website is not directed toward children who are under the age of 13. Crystaphase does not knowingly collect personal information from children or minors. If Crystaphase becomes aware that a child has provided us with personal information without parental consent, that information will be deleted from our databases. If you have questions about personal information that may have been submitted by a child, please email us at info@crystaphase.com.

Disclosure of personal information

We disclose information only as described in this Policy or as otherwise permitted or required by law. To provide products or services, we may sometimes disclose our clients’ Information to Crystaphase affiliates and to third parties (for example, to evaluate creditworthiness or to collect debts or to engage experts or consultants), including foreign agents and government or regulatory agencies, or where such disclosure is required or permitted by law.

Our offices around the world may share your information for marketing purposes. Your information may be accessed or stored in the U.S.A. or another jurisdiction, and will be subject to the laws of that jurisdiction.

Retention of personal information

We will retain information for as long as it is needed for the purposes for which it was collected.

Protection of personal information

We use the standard safeguards to protect the security of information in our possession, including physical, organizational, and technological measures. We cannot guarantee that information will not be lost, used unlawfully or modified in a fraudulent manner, and consequently we bear no liability for the use that may be made of the information.

Your access to your personal information

You can ask to view your information by writing to the address provided at the beginning of this Policy. You can request that corrections be made when you can show that the information we possess is inaccurate.
