Your privacy is important to us. This notice explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used at our site.
The Information We Collect
We do not collect personally identifiable information about you – such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc. – unless you choose to fill out a “Contact Us” form, found on many of the pages of the site or to email us directly. We do automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our site – such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink).
How We Normally Use Information About You
We use non-personally identifiable information to analyze site usage (such as aggregated information on the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of our site. In the ordinary course, we use personally identifiable information you provide solely to respond to your inquiry. We will not contact you about other matters unless you specifically request it, nor will we share, rent, or sell your personally identifiable information outside the Southgate Lease Services. If you are interested in applying for a job at the Southgate Lease Services and choose to submit resume information by email, we will use it only for the internal application review process. We will not voluntarily share, rent or sell it outside the Southgate Lease Services. However, it is possible, though unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency’s request. Also, we cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web or that may be collectible in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to us.
Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and Sponsors
Our site contains links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites’ privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties. Southgate Lease Services posts information about programs and events that are sponsored by or co-sponsored other firms or organizations. Should you choose to register electronically for any of these events, the Southgate Lease Services will have no control over the third-party sponsors’ use of this information. As for our own use of your registration information, that will be handled by us as if you had registered by telephone or on paper. In other words, the privacy policies applicable to our Web site will not apply.
A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk so that the website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. When you visit our website we send you a cookie. Cookies may be used in the following ways: To enable the personalization features on our website (which give you the ability to recall recently viewed pages and see information which you have input on line). To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use our site and to help us improve the structure of our website. We cannot identify you personally in this way. Two types of cookies may be used on this website, session cookies, which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the site, and persistent cookies, which remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).
