Privacy Policy

SecureLink, Inc. and our affiliates (together, “our”, “we”, “us”, “company”, or “SecureLink”) are committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information. This privacy policy (“Policy”) describes how we collect, use, and otherwise handle personal information about you and is directed to our current and prospective customers, partners, and suppliers, employees, job candidates and applicants, end users of any Products (defined below), and users of our Sites (defined below). As used in this Privacy Policy, ‘personal information’ or ‘personal data’ means information that relates to an identified individual or to an identifiable individual.

We provide network and system access management solutions (“Products”) to enterprise customers. Typically, our Products are used by our customers and partners on their own premises and in their own environments and we generally do not have access to the information processed by the Products unless we are providing configuration services, customer support or success services, quality assurance, testing or other professional services, or for administrative purposes. When we do have access to personal information of individuals, it is typically as a service provider or supplier to our customers and partners, with limited exceptions, such as, for example when we collect information:

  • Through our website https://www.securelink.com/, related sub-sites and other websites and mobile applications that we provide (the “Sites,” which are included in the Products).
  • For our advertising, marketing, promotion, industry outreach and educational efforts (which are primarily in a business-to-business context versus direct to individual consumers).
  • In our relationships with employees, contractors, applicants and administrative and operational vendors and suppliers.

In our role as a service provider and supplier, we only process personal information of our customers and partners as necessary to fulfill our obligations under our agreements with such parties and under applicable law.

Additional terms may apply for specific Products. If such terms apply, they will control over any conflicting terms in this Policy to the extent permitted under applicable law.

We are committed to protecting the personal information you entrust to us.

In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties who have a business need to know. They are subject to terms that require them to only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to address any suspected security incident leading to the misappropriation or accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, your personal information transmitted, stored or otherwise processed on our systems that compromises the confidentiality, integrity or availability of your personal information and will notify you and any applicable regulator of such an incident where we are legally required to do so.

Notwithstanding our efforts to protect your information, no security system is completely impenetrable, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information, nor can we guarantee that information you supply to us will not be intercepted while in transit to us. Any transmission of information or data by you to or through this Site, Products, or other means is at your sole risk.

We will keep your personal information only for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy unless a longer retention period is required by applicable law. We will not keep more information than we need for those purposes.

Cookies

A cookie is an alphanumeric set of characters that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer so that a website can remember who you are to, for example, customize website content and create a better browsing experience. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain or website that created the cookie, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and an alphanumeric value, usually a randomly generated unique number to identify the cookie.

Similar technologies may be used instead of or in conjunction with cookies, such as web beacons, which are small, non-recognizable pictures downloaded to your computer when a specific website is loaded.

When you visit our Sites, we may use cookies and similar technologies for the following purposes:

  • To help us recognize you as a unique visitor (just an alphanumeric identifier) when you return to our Sites.
  • To allow us to tailor content or advertisements to match your preferred interests.
  • To avoid showing you the same advertisements repeatedly.
  • To support sales activities and provide direct marketing communications to you if you have consented to receive such communications.
  • To compile statistics that allow us to understand how users interact with our Sites, such as from which web page a user visited prior to arriving at our Sites, how long users remained on one of our Sites’ pages, and what website users visited directly after they left the Securelink.com domain of our Sites.
  • To help us improve our Sites.
  • To protect the security of our Sites.

Cookies we use may collect such information as IP address, mobile identifier and the browser and type of operating system of the device you used to access our Site and certain activity data of the device, such as pages viewed and links clicked.

Our Sites use the following categories of cookies:

  • Required Cookies: Required cookies are necessary for the operation, maintenance and/or security of our Sites.
  • Performance and Functionality Cookies: Performance cookies collect information about how visitors use our Sites, such as which pages visitors go to most often and if they receive error messages from web pages. For example, we may use third parties to help us understand how visitors engage with our Sites. This means that when you visit our Sites, your browser automatically sends certain information to these third parties. This includes, for example, the web address of the page you’re visiting and your IP address. Functionality cookies remember choices you make (such as your language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced or more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages you can customize.
  • Targeting and Advertising Cookies: These cookies are used to deliver advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see a certain advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by third-party advertising networks with our permission. They remember that you have visited a website and may share this information with other organizations such as advertisers.

Two types of cookies may be used on our Sites: 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 longer though the time period will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).

Disabling and Enabling Cookies

You can use your browser or device settings to review and erase or delete cookies at any time. Note that by disabling certain categories of cookies you may be prevented from accessing some features of our Sites, certain content or functionality may not be available, or the Sites may not operate correctly.

Depending on your location, you may also opt out of third-party cookies relating to behavioral advertising by visiting the following websites:

Opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the company or companies from which you opted out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your browsing preferences and usage patterns. You may temporarily continue to see some tailored ads produced from ongoing advertising campaigns.

The above opt-out tools rely on the use of cookies, and to the extent your browser settings impact use of third-party cookies, the above tools may not operate correctly. The above tools also apply only to the browser on which they are exercised. If you want to apply these tools to multiple devices or multiple browsers, you must exercise these tools on each browser and/or device.

Do Not Track

There are different ways to prevent tracking of online activities. Some web browsers may allow you to enable a do-not-track feature that alerts the websites you visit that you do not want your online activities to be tracked. Our Sites may not recognize or react in response to do-not-track signals. At present, no generally accepted standards exist on how companies must respond to do-not-track signals. In the event a final standard is established, we will assess and provide an appropriate response to these signals.

Your California Privacy Rights

If you are a California resident and have any concerns about how we process your data or would like to exercise any of your California privacy rights, including those described below, you can contact us by email or post as set forth below with “Attention: Legal” in the heading or address. Please identify yourself as a California resident and provide sufficient information so we can take appropriate action, such as your name, email address or any additional information required. Finally, if we are processing your personal information as a service provider for a customer or partner, we may ask you to contact our customer or partner directly, to the extent permitted under applicable law.

“Shine the Light” Law

California residents may request certain information regarding our disclosure (if any) of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes, pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (the California “Shine the Light” law). To make such a request, please contact us, identify yourself as a California resident and provide sufficient information so we can take appropriate action, such as your name, email address or any additional information required.

California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

We generally process personal information as a service provider for our customers and partners, many of whom are large enterprises who have a direct relationship with individuals using our Products. This means that, in addition to other exceptions under the CCPA that may apply (including for employees, contractors and business contacts), our processing of personal information as a service provider may not involve a sale of personal information of a consumer.

Right of Access (CCPA):

Certain California consumers may have the right to disclosure of information about our collection, sale or disclosure for a business purpose of their personal information, including, to the extent applicable, the following:

  • The categories of personal information we have collected about such consumer.
  • The categories of sources from which such personal information has been collected.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we have shared such personal information.
  • The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling such personal information.
  • The categories of such consumer’s personal information we have sold or disclosed for a business purpose, by category for each category of third parties to whom the personal information was sold or disclosed, or we will state that we have not sold or disclosed for a business purpose such consumer’s personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about such consumer.

We will provide appropriate disclosures upon receipt of a verifiable request, to the extent required by law (or in our discretion if not required by law) and as permitted by our contracts, confidentiality obligations and applicable laws and regulations. We may not be able to provide all of the information requested, such as, for example: (1) if the personal information was collected for a single one-time transaction and if, in the ordinary course of business, such information was not retained; (2) we would be required to reidentify or otherwise link any data that, in the ordinary course of business, was not maintained in a manner that would be considered personal information; (3) the consumer used different browsers, devices or identifying information and we have not linked all such information together; or (4) if the information was collected, sold or disclosed prior to January 1, 2019 or twelve (12) months prior to the receipt of such verifiable consumer request, whichever is later. If we receive more than two requests for disclosure from a particular consumer within a twelve (12)-month period, we may decline to respond to such additional requests to the extent permitted under applicable law and regulations.

Right to Opt Out (CCPA):

Certain California consumers may also have the right to opt out of the sale of their personal information by contacting us and providing the verification information and other details we need in order to handle the request appropriately. We may, to the extent permitted under applicable law and regulations, continue to process data: (1) that is not personal information of a California consumer, including aggregate information, deidentified information or publicly available information; (2) where such processing is otherwise permitted under the CCPA, including without limitation where we are acting as a “service provider” under the CCPA, or where the processing of data is otherwise exempt; (3) where such processing is required under applicable law or regulations; (4) to protect our legal rights; (5) to comply with our contractual requirements or other applicable laws or regulations, or (6) where information is not covered by CCPA or another CCPA exception applies. Due to technological limitations, we also may not be able to recognize opt-out requests if a consumer accesses our Sites or our software, platforms or applications using a new browser, a new device or new or modified personal information. If you believe we are selling your personal information despite your opt-out request, please contact us.

Right to Deletion (CCPA):

Certain California consumers have the right to request deletion of their personal information by contacting us and providing the required verification information and other details we need in order to handle the request appropriately. We may, to the extent permitted under applicable law and regulations, retain and continue to process data: (1) that is not personal information of a California consumer; (2) where such processing is otherwise permitted under the CCPA, including without limitation where we are acting as a “service provider” under the CCPA, or where the data or processing is otherwise exempt under the CCPA; (3) where such processing is required under applicable law or regulations; (4) to protect our legal rights; (5) to comply with our contractual requirements or other applicable laws or regulations, or (6) where another CCPA exception applies.

Non-Discrimination (CCPA):

California consumers have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment for exercising any of the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA, except as permitted under the CCPA. If you believe you have received discriminatory treatment for exercising your CCPA privacy rights, please contact us.

We may amend this Policy from time to time, and if we make changes that affect the way we use your personal information, we will notify you by posting a revised statement on our Sites or Products. Where appropriate, we will notify you by additional means.
