Privacy policy

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to clearly state how we handle the data you supply when you visit or interact with our website. This includes, but is not limited to,  whenever you download any resource, fill out forms or register for events. When providing your data, you accept that we might send you information about our products, events, or offers. This also includes marketing communications. If you don’t want to receive more communication from us, each communication contains a link for unsubscribing, or you can send an email to marketing@tacton.com. You can read more in detail below.

The Privacy Policy covers this website and other sites that reference this Privacy Statement. Some Tacton Systems entities, programs and/or sites may have their own, possibly different, privacy statements. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each of the Tacton Systems websites or program information you visit or review.

Our privacy practices reflect current global principles and standards on handling personal information. These principles include notice of data use, choice of data use, data access, data integrity, security, onward transfer, and enforcement/oversight. We abide by the privacy laws in the countries where we do business. This includes the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Tacton Systems is committed to protecting the personal data you share with us. Tacton Systems uses a combination of industry-standard security technologies, procedures, and organizational measures to help protect your personal data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Tacton Systems supports online security using secure server technology because we want your data to be safe. There are state-of-the-art security arrangements and facilities on Tacton Systems sites to prevent abuse.

By providing your personal information using this website, you consent to the use of the information as described here. If we decide to make changes to this Privacy Statement, we will post the changes on this site so that you will always know what information we collect, and how we use it.

When you provide us with your personal information when downloading a resource, or in other instances, we consider this explicit consent from your side regarding the handling, use, and storage of your personal information.

  • When you sign up to use our sites or services, you may be required to provide information about yourself such as your name, business title, and company.
  • We collect information that tells us how you interact with our services, including the browser you are using, your IP address, location, cookies or other unique IDs, the pages you visit and features you use.

We use several methods and technologies to gather information about how you use our sites and services, including:

  • Web forms, such as when you type information into a registration form or type a search query into a search box.
  • Technologies like cookies and web beacons
  • Web logging, which enables us to collect the standard information your browser sends to every website you visit—such as your IP address, browser type and language, and the site you came from—as well as the pages you visit and the links you click while using our sites and services.
  • Software installed on your computer or other devices, which may send back information needed to operate, update, or improve that software.

Tacton Systems uses the information we collect to operate, improve, and personalize the products and services we offer. We will use such information only as described in this Privacy Statement and/or in the way we specify at the time of collection. Information collected through one Tacton Systems service may be combined with information collected through other Tacton Systems services to give you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with us.

The collected data will be used for business communication. This includes, but is not limited to, marketing messages, information about product releases, press releases,  and other information we deem of interest to you.

The data may be shared with trusted parties, such as affiliates within the Tacton Systems Group, partners, or service providers. This will only be done if we think it will improve your experience with us.

We do not sell your data to third parties.

 

Email addresses and communication preferences

If you choose to give us your email address, we will communicate with you via email. We do not share your email address with others outside the Tacton Systems Group of companies. You can stop the delivery of future promotional email from Tacton Systems sites and services by following the specific instructions in any email you receive. Depending on the respective service, you may also have the option to proactively make choices about the receipt of promotional email, telephone calls, and postal mail for particular Tacton Systems sites or services.

IP addresses

We use IP addresses to administer our website and to gather demographic information. We may also use IP addresses or other information you have shared on this website or on an earlier occasion, or a campaign code to determine which pages on our sites are being visited and topics that may be of interest so we can provide you with information about relevant products and services. Generally, Tacton Systems will aggregate such data only in an anonymous way and will not tie it to a particular individual. When you visit our site, we recognize only your domain name.Tacton Systems will only gather information related to your visit to the Tacton Systems website. We do not track or collect personal information from your visits to companies or entities outside the Tacton Systems Group of companies.

Most Tacton Systems websites use “cookies,” which are small text files placed on your hard disk by a web server. We use cookies to remember the settings made by each visitor, such as choice of country, and thereby offer personalized features. This helps us to register the traffic flow on the website and provides us with statistics and information on how many visitors we have on our website, the time the visitors spend on our website, the visitors’ origin and domain, and what operative system and browser they use. We also use cookies to trace downloads you make, to facilitate your subsequent downloads and provide us with information about your downloads.

To sum up, using cookies enables us to improve the service and function of our website for your benefit. Cookies contain text that can be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. That text often consists of a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identifies your computer, but may contain other information as well. Here is an example of the text stored in a cookie that Tacton Systems might place on your hard disk when you visit one of our websites: E3732CA7E319442F97EA48A170C99801.

On this website, we use persistent cookies. That means the cookies are saved to the hard disk after the browser is closed. We may also use so-called session cookies, which are cookies saved to the web browser that disappear when the browser is closed.

 

Security

 

Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. You can accept or reject cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to reject cookies. You must, however, accept cookies to use all the functions on this website.

 

We may use cookies for:

 

  • Storing your Preferences and Settings. If you enter your country to get local news on a Tacton Systems site, we may store that country code in a cookie so that you will see the relevant local information when you return to the site. This can save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information every time you visit the site.
  • Targeted Advertising. When we display online advertisements to you, we will place one or more persistent cookies on your device to recognize your device each time we display an ad to you. Because we serve advertisements on our own websites as well as those of our advertising and publisher partners, we are able to compile information over time about the types of pages, content and ads you or others who are using your computer visited or viewed. This information is used for many purposes; for example, it helps us ensure that you do not see the same advertisements over and over again. We also use this information to help select and display targeted advertisements that we believe may be of interest to you.
  • Site Analytics. We may use cookies to count the number of unique visitors to a web page or service or to develop other aggregate statistics about the operations of our sites and services. Such analytics help us operate and improve the performance of these sites and services.

In addition to the cookies Tacton Systems may set when you visit our websites, third parties may also set certain cookies on your hard drive when you visit our sites. In some cases, that is because we have hired a third party to provide certain services on our behalf, such as site analytics. In other cases, it is because our web pages contain content or ads from third parties, such as videos, news content, or ads delivered by other ad networks. Because your browser connects to those third parties’ web servers to retrieve that content, those third parties are able to set or read their own cookies on your hard drive.

Our use of web beacons

Tacton Systems web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons—sometimes called single-pixel gifs—that may be used to help deliver cookies on our sites, let us count users who have visited those pages, and deliver co-branded services. We may include web beacons in our promotional e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

 

We may also work with other companies that advertise on Tacton Systems sites to place web beacons on their sites or in their advertisements to let us develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement on a Tacton Systems site results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser’s site.

 

Finally, Tacton Systems sites may contain web beacons from third parties to help us compile aggregated statistics regarding the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns or other website operations. These web beacons may allow the third parties to set or read a cookie on your computer. We prohibit third parties from using web beacons on our sites to collect or access your personal information. Nevertheless, you can opt out from data collection or use by these third-party analytics companies by clicking the links for the following analytics provider: Google Analytics: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout (requires you to install a browser add-on)
