By submitting your personal information to S-L through this website or accessing or using our services, including our SLIQ software, (collectively, “Site”) you thereby give your consent to the handling of your personal data in the manner described in this policy.
For each visitor browsing our Site, our web server automatically recognizes and stores the visitor's IP address (the Internet protocol address of the visitor's computer) to determine which areas of our Site are being visited and how long each visitor spends there. This information helps us to understand visitors' traffic patterns through our sites so that we can enhance the overall usability of our Sites. Your computer provides this information automatically each time you log on, unless you have activated blocking technology available in some browsers.
If you are not a current S-L subscriber, we do not generally require that you provide us with personally identifiable information (“personal information”) in order to visit and use our Site. If you wish to communicate with us without being a subscriber, we may ask you to provide us with limited personal information such as your e-mail address and name. The submission of your personal information is voluntary if you choose not to purchase S-L products or services. If you subscribe to or otherwise receive the subscription benefits of the S-L products or services, then we may require you to provide us with certain expanded personal information such as your email address, name, mailing address, telephone number, credit card number, demographic information, persistent identifier (such as user name and password) which is associated with individually identifiable information, and other information that we request. Once you have been granted access to our products and services, then in addition to the personally identifiable data and information associated with your account, we may also collect non-identifying information from you, such as information about you and your company (e.g., revenues, industry, and so forth). We may incorporate this non-identifying information into our application, algorithms, statistical tools and analytics to improve our products, services and Sites, provided that we will not directly identify you in association with such data to a third party. We do not require you to provide sensitive personal information (such as information about your health, political or religious beliefs, criminal offences alleged or committed, sexual orientation), and request that you do not provide us with such information. Any such information you do provide to us of your own volition will be used only in accordance with this policy.
We may also use your information to comply with laws or to defend ourselves in claims under such laws, or where necessary to exercise S-L’s legitimate business interests and needs.
Like many websites, we may employ a standard technology called “cookies” to collect information about how you use our Site and to provide you with a better experience by measuring which areas of our Site are of greatest interest or to remember you when you return to visit us. Most browsers will allow you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block acceptance of cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. You can choose to set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the choice of rejecting or accepting the cookie. Cookies may also be used by third parties that provide services on our Site. S-L does not uniformly process do-not-track signals from browsers. However, you may prevent S-L from collecting data using cookies on a browser by blocking third-party cookies in that browser. If you block third-party cookies from being set on your browser, you may not be able to use some features or functionality of, and you may see the same content and advertisements repeatedly on, some websites. Our Site may contain the following types of cookies:

The personal information you provide may be used to support your customer relationship with S-L. We want to use this data to tailor your experience at our Site and with the company generally. If you provide us with personal information, then unless you instruct us otherwise (as described below), we will send you information about our various product upgrades, special offers and other new products and services from S-L that we feel may be of interest to you. Only S-L (or agents working on behalf of S-L) will send you these direct mailings. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us when you give us your personal information. At any time should you choose to, you can opt-out of receiving future promotional mailings by contacting S-L; see the opt-out section below.
S-L will not share your personal information with any outside organization for its use in marketing or solicitation without your consent. Your information may be shared with agents or contractors of S-L for the purpose of performing services for S-L. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company. We use reasonable efforts to only provide third party agents or contractors with the minimum amount of information needed to complete the requested service or transaction. Your information may also be disclosed to third parties where we are legally obliged or entitled to do so, for example in response to a request from a government or regulatory authority or in connection with potential legal proceedings. Without limiting the foregoing, S-L is not responsible for the actions of any government with respect to your information or data.
If we merge with, or any part of the S-L company is acquired by, another business (or enter into discussions concerning the same) we may share your information with such a business and its advisers, but if we do so we will ensure steps are taken so that your rights in relation to your information continue to be protected.
