We use Navigational Information to operate and improve the Website. We may also use Navigational Information alone or in combination with Personal Information to provide you with personalized information about Intech.
We employ other companies and people to provide services to visitors to our Website and our clients, and may need to share your information with them as well as our affiliates to provide information, products, or services to you. Examples may include removing repetitive information from prospect lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and supplementing the information you provide us in order to provide you with better service. In all cases where we share your information with such persons, we explicitly require them to acknowledge and adhere to our privacy and client data handling policies.
We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We secure the Personal Information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When sensitive Personal Information (such as geo-location data) is collected on our Website and/or transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
If you have any questions about the security of your Personal Information, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may offer publicly accessible message boards, blogs, and community forums. Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose any information through our public message boards, blogs, or forums, this information may be collected and used by others. We will correct or delete any information you have posted on the Website if you so request, as described in "Opting Out and Unsubscribing" below.
We retain Personal Information that you provide us as long as we consider it potentially useful in contacting you about our services, or as needed, to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements, and then we securely delete the information. We will delete this information from the servers at an earlier date if you so request, as described in "Opting Out and Unsubscribing" below.
If another company acquires us, whether by merger, acquisition, bankruptcy or otherwise, that company would receive all information gathered by Intech on the Website. In this event, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Website, of any change in ownership, uses of your Personal Information, and choices you may have regarding your Personal Information.
We reserve the right to use or disclose your Personal Information if required by law or if we reasonably believe that use or disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or comply with a law, court order, or legal process.
You should be aware that cookies and other similar identification methods may be used to associate you with the computer or device that you are using. These cookies do not reveal your identity to us or provide us with personally identifiable information about your use of the site. You can change your cookie preferences by using the settings on your web browser that allows you to delete or refuse the setting of cookies. Some cookies may be stored on your computer and are not deleted when you close your browser. These permanent cookies retain your preferences for a particular website, allowing those preferences to remain for future browsing sessions, but no information is collected from you.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Website. Intech keeps track of the pages you visit in order to determine what portion of the Website is the most popular or most used. This data is used to deliver customized content and promotions within the Website to users whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

We may collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests, and favorites using log files that are not associated with your name or other personal information. There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by us. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, internet service provider (ISP), the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, clickstream data, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by Intech to provide general statistics regarding use of the Website. For these purposes, we do link this automatically collected data to Personal Information such as name, email address, address, and phone number.
We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage the Website by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs in emails to our clients' Personal Information. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see "Opting Out and Unsubscribing.”
The Adobe Flash Player (and similar applications) use technology to remember settings, preferences and usage similar to browser cookies but these are managed through a different interface than the one provided by your Web browser. This technology creates locally stored objects that are often referred to as "Flash cookies." Intech does not use Flash cookies. We do not have access or control over these third party tracking technologies.
Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.
