Our Commitment To Privacy
Your privacy is important, to you, to us, to anyone you may come in contact with. To better inform you so that you can protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available from our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested
The Information We Collect
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the SPEC web site.
Our comment and survey forms request your name and an email address that can be used to contact you. Some pages on this site provide online forms where you can order products, make requests, and register to receive materials. Our product order forms require your name, company information, billing and shipping addresses, as well as email and telephone contact information.
The Way We Use Information
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order. We also use the supplied contact information to notify you about new releases and changes to benchmarks for which you are licensed.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
We use our system logs, non-identifying information, and aggregate information monitoring for maintaining and improving our web site and our services. For example, we do review internally which areas of our web site get visits, and at what time, and from what Internet domains. Little of this information is specific to individual behavior, we make no attempt to identify any individual's behavior, and no individual information is ever shared with any 3rd parties. We and our research partners may also perform further analysis of site access patterns or traffic using aggregated and anonymized information from the system logs.
Finally, were we ever to use or share any personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above, we would first provide you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Furthermore, we do not store any individualized or sensitive data on any of our Internet servers. We do not even store any individualized financial information on any server within our domain.
Our Commitment To Children's Privacy
No part of our web site is structured to attract anyone under 13. Nevertheless, protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our web site from those we actually know are under 13.
How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information
You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by contacting us directly; see our contact information. For your safety, we do not keep any of this personally identifiable information online.
You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows the error. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
