The kind of information we collect from you online depends on how you decide to use our website or services. If you choose simply to browse our site, we will collect the information from your computing device that is necessary to enable us to allow you to browse our website, but you will not need to submit any additional personal information at all. However, you might choose to provide us with your personally identifiable information by such means as e-mailing us, sending us your resume, or filling out certain forms on our website. When you do so, you understand and agree that we will use the personally identifiable information you provide to us to provide you with our services and products.
Our system may also gather certain technical data about your visit, which helps us understand better how our site is being used and how we can improve it.
E-mail Contact: If you choose to contact us by e-mail, we will use reasonable efforts to keep your contact information private although we may use it to respond to your message. No confidentiality will apply to the subject matter of your message, however, so we recommend that you do not send us any ideas or suggestions that you consider proprietary or confidential. By providing us e-mail, you understand and agree that you are expressly providing Mist Systems a license to use and fully exploit the information in your email (except your contact information).
Solicited Information: We may ask website visitors for personal information through forms on our website, including, for example, registering for events, joining our mailing list, becoming a business partner, or inquiring about product sales. The personal information you choose to provide on these forms, which would typically include your name, company name, and contact information, may be used by Mist Systems in a manner consistent with the stated purpose of the given form. In addition, we may use visitor responses for non-personal assessment of their preferences so we can tailor our site’s contents to better suit the tastes and needs of our audience. If you are asked for your e-mail address in a form on our website, we will not add it to any automatic mailing lists unless we’ve asked for permission to do so.
Employment Opportunities: Our site may provide you with a means for submitting your resume or other personal information for consideration for employment opportunities at Mist Systems. Personal information received through resume submissions will be kept confidential in accordance with Mist Systems’ standard HR policies. We may contact you for additional information to supplement your resume, and we may use your information within Mist Systems, or keep it on file for future use, as we make our hiring decisions.
Automatically Gathered Data: We may store and use information gathered automatically by our system–such as computer IP addresses, the kind of browsers our viewers are using, and a record of the pages viewed on our site–so we can understand how to make our site more convenient and useful to our audience. We may also share this information, in aggregate form, with parties we hire to help us perform our business.
Transfer of Data: In order to promote continuity of services and support, if Mist Systems’ business is sold, acquired, or merges with another company, we may transfer the information you’ve shared with us to the successor company. If this occurs, the use and disclosure of transferred data will be governed by the privacy practices of the successor company.
