Platinum Integrated Business Connections Inc. (PIBCI) protects the privacy of the people who visit Tradogram websites, individuals who register to use Tradogram services and people who register to attend our corporate events. This page describes our privacy practices with respect to such people, products and circumstances.
PIBCI (we) may collect information that users provide to us through social media, surveys and site registrations. We store this data for marketing purposes, transactions, and to enhance our services. (See “What we do with your information” below.) The user information we collect may contain business and personal data about you, including your address and phone number.
By law, we are prohibited from disclosing business or personal information without your written permission. We do not share your information with—or sell or rent information to—others unless your use of Tradogram is deemed to give to us valid consent to disclose information as follows:
Our websites may contain links to other websites, which may include privacy statements that govern those sites’ information practices. You should review those sites’ privacy pages to ensure that you understand and are comfortable with their information practices.
When you register for Tradogram, we may ask for your name, company name, email address, billing address and credit card information. If you register as supplier, you do not need to provide credit card information; however, if you want to use Tradogram as a buyer and you register for our monthly or annual multi-user plan, you must provide credit card information.
We use the information we collect for the following general purposes:
When you create Tradogram account, you must read and consent to the Tradogram user agreement. Further, as part of the buying and selling process on Tradogram, you will enter your customers’ email addresses and/or shipping addresses into our platform. By consenting to the user agreement, you agree that—with respect to other users’ personal and business information that you obtain through Tradogram or through a Tradogram-related communication or through a Tradogram-facilitated transaction—you will use such information only for Tradogram-related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages. We do not tolerate spam. Therefore, you shall not send invitations to people without their express consent.
We may hold corporate events. When we do, we may use information about attendees to plan conferences, online forums and other gatherings. We may also use this information to populate profiles on our event websites. You may find more information about our privacy practices with respect to attendee information in the privacy statements on our event websites. Additionally, we may use information about you for marketing purposes. For example, we may use information you provide to contact you to discuss your interest in our services and to send you information about Tradogram, our partners, promotions and future events.
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter personal information such as your credit card number on our sign-up webpage, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology. Our credit card processing provider Elavon processes credit card information according to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), following all PCI DSS requirements and implementing additional generally accepted industry standards to protect your personal information, both during transmission and once Elavon receives it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100 percent secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our website, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We may disclose personal and business information under special circumstances, such as to comply with court orders requiring us to do so or when your actions violate our terms of service.
We do not sell or otherwise provide personal or business information to other companies for the marketing of their products or services without your express consent.
We do not share with business partners any information about you as an attendee of our corporate events unless you specifically agree to authorize such sharing via an event registration form, or unless you allow us—or someone we have designated—to scan your badge at the event. If you do not wish for us to share your information, you may indicate on the registration form that you do not authorize us to share your information. Similarly, you may choose not to have your badge scanned at the event. If you decide to permit us to share your information with our business partners, your information will be subject to our business partners’ respective privacy policies.
We own the data storage, databases and all rights to the Tradogram application. We make no claim to the rights of your data. You retain all rights to your data and we will never contact your clients or suppliers directly, or use your data for our own business advantage or to compete with you or market to your clients.
A cookie is a small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Every computer that accesses our website is assigned a different cookie by us.
Used with cookies, web beacons are small transparent images, usually no larger than 1 x 1 pixel, placed on websites. We use web beacons to monitor how people use our sites—how long a user visited one of our webpages, for example. We then use this information to understand which webpages people access most often and which areas are not visited as frequently, so we can enhance our site to meet users’ needs.
We use a service provided by Google called Google Analytics (GA). GA permits us to reach people who have previously visited our site, and show them relevant advertisements when they visit other sites across the Internet in the Google Display Network, a service that enables people and businesses to create and distribute ads online. GA functionality is often called “remarketing”.
You may be able to opt out of customized Google Display Network ads by visiting the Ads Preferences Manager (http://www.google.com/ads/preferences) and the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on (http://www.google.ca/ads/preferences/plugin). If you use our website without opting out as described above, you indicate that you understand and agree to data collection as a means to show you relevant remarketing ads through GA and cookies from third parties based on your prior visits to our website and elsewhere on the Internet.
Currently, some web browsers offer a do not track (DNT) technology, which tells the websites you visit whether or not you want your use of the sites to be tracked. Currently, we do not commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals since there is no common industry standard for DNT and no consistent standard of interpreting user intent. We take privacy and choice seriously and we will continue to monitor the development of DNT functionality.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security requirements managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, a joint effort of payment companies including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI DSS helps ensure the secure handling of credit card information by merchants and service providers like us.
We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time. Review it frequently. If we change the policy, we will notify you here or by means of a notice so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
