Helping to protect private information and preserve customer privacy is not only our business, it's how we govern and operate our Web site. All visitor information collected by abridean is considered private and company confidential information. The information we collect from you through our Web site is used to improve our site, making it a more valuable resource for visitors like you.
Information collected about you
Abridean collects and maintains certain personal information about you when you send us email or complete any of our online forms. The personal information you provide can identify you and your business individually, and may include items such as your name and email address, job title, company name and address, phone number, Web site address and contact details of the Web site administrator. Abridean also collects, or logs, certain other information that cannot identify you personally when you visit our Web site. This information includes your Internet Protocol ("IP") address and your domain name. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by the ISP computer through which you access the Web and a domain name is the name of the ISP computer itself through which you access the Web. Abridean logs these IP addresses and domain names and aggregates them for system administration and to monitor the use of our site. We use the aggregated information to measure the number of visits to our site, the average time spent on our site, the number of pages viewed, and various other site use statistics. This monitoring helps us evaluate how our Web site is used and continuously improve the content we provide.
While we may report aggregated IP address information to program participants, abridean.com does not link IP addresses or domain names with any personally identifiable information, which means that a visitor's session will be logged on our servers but the visitor will always remain anonymous.
Abridean does not purchase or otherwise obtain any supplemental personal information about you from any third parties.
