We are sensitive to protecting the
private information that our visitors provide to us. The trust and
loyalty of our customers is very important to us and this policy
demonstrates our commitment to making sure your experience with our
web site is positive. This policy statement describes
how we treat information received about you
when you are a visitor to the Web Site.
We do not and will not collect personally
identifying information about you when you visit our Web Site,
unless you choose to provide such information to us. You also may
decide to send us personally identifying information (for example
your mailing address or e-mail address), in an electronic mail
message requesting that we send you information. In all cases, we
will not sell,
share or release any personally identifying information to any third parties
unless request us to do so in writing.
If you visit our Web Site to read press releases, news and
events, or access Informant Systems, Inc. product specifications, we
may collect (in a completely anonymous fashion), broad
statistical information that aids us in identifying the issues
important to visitors and our customers. These may include:
- Name of the domain from which you access the Internet.
- Date and time you access our Web Site.
- Internet address of the web site from which you linked
directly to our Web Site.

For site management purposes, anonymous information is collected
for statistical analysis. This web site uses software programs to
create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as
assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of our
Web Site, what information is of most and least interest,
determining product design specifications, and identifying system
performance or problem areas.
A cookie is a small piece of information that is sent to your
browser—along with a Web page—when you access a Web site. There are
two kinds of cookies. A session cookie is a line of text that is
stored temporarily in your computer’s RAM. Because a session cookie
is never written to a drive, it is destroyed as soon as you close
your browser. A persistent cookie is a more permanent line of text
that gets saved by your browser to a file on your hard drive. If you
have your browser set to notify you before accepting cookies the
notice will tell you if the cookie expires some time in the future
or not. Persistent cookies have an expiration date in the future.
Session cookies have no date associated with them.
simplifies interaction with the service. These cookies do not enable
third parties to access any of your customer information.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service
remains available to all, this Web site employs software programs to
monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload
or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Unauthorized
attempts to upload information or change information on our Web Site
is strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the law.
Please remember that no computer system should be considered safe
from intrusion. For example, e-mail may pass through many computer
systems, and should not be considered a secure means of
communication unless encrypted. Even then, information is only as
secure as the encryption method. Therefore, although we take many
precautions to protect our system and our servers, we cannot
guarantee the security of any data on any server, including secure
The Web Site may at some point use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the industry
standard security protocol to communicate with secure browsers like
Netscape and Internet Explorer. When communicating with a secure
server, these browsers encrypt the information you send in
a way that is extremely difficult for anyone else to decode. (You do
not have to know whether your browser supports secure transactions.
If it does not, you will not be able to login to the secure portions
of our Web Site once implemented.)
Some parts of the Web Site may at some point be secured. Some
of the activity on our Web Site involves the viewing of materials we
have prepared and made accessible to everyone, so there is no need
for these pages to be secure. With a service information page, for
example, no security risk exists because there is no exchange of
information. Anyone can access the same pages by pointing their
browser at http://www.informant-systems.com/.
