BRIDGEWAVE COMMUNICATIONS, INC., PRIVACY
This Policy is the sole authorized statement of BridgeWave's practices with respect to the online collection of personally identifiable information and the usage of such information. Any summaries of this Policy generated by third party software or otherwise (for example, in connection with the “Platform for Privacy Preferences” or “P3P”) shall have no legal effect, are in no way binding upon BridgeWave, shall not be relied upon in substitute for this Policy, and neither supersede nor modify this Policy. The Information We Gather BridgeWave gathers two types of information about visitors to our Site:
- (1) Personally identifiable information
You do not have to provide personally identifiable information to use the Site. However, particular services made available through the Site may require us to collect personally identifiable information from you. We collect such personally identifiable information only when you affirmatively provide it to us - for example, when submitting an inquiry form to the Site, or in connection with responding to employment opportunities posted on the Site. You may be asked to provide your contact information (including, for example, first name, surname, street address, email address, telephone number) and, when applicable, credit card information, in connection with your use of BridgeWave services or if you choose to shop online. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children (defined herein as minors younger than thirteen years of age) without obtaining parental consent. BridgeWave does not control the acts of its visitors. All visitors should be aware that, when they disclose personally identifiable information in a bulletin board, chat room, guestbook or other forum, the information may be collected and used by others to send that person unsolicited email from other parties outside BridgeWave. In the event that you encounter any BridgeWave user who is improperly collecting or using information about you or other users, please contact webmaster@BridgeWave.com How We Use (and Do Not Use) the Information We Gather Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the different ways BridgeWave uses the information that it gathers. Keep in mind that, while BridgeWave encourages all third parties involved - including but not limited to its affiliates and advertisers - to adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of our visitors and to otherwise handle personal information in a responsible manner, we cannot and do not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received either from BridgeWave or independently.
- (1) Non-personally identifiable information
: BridgeWave uses non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to build higher quality, more useful online services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our visitors, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Site. We use the aggregate data to provide statistical information based on this data to advertisers, affiliates and other current and potential business partners. We may also inform these third parties as to the number of people who have seen and clicked on links to their web sites. The Site contains links to other Internet web sites, including co-branded or other affiliated sites which may or may not be owned or operated by BridgeWave. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites, including such sites' use of any information (such as IP number, browser type or operating system) collected when visitors to the Site click through links to those sites. Even though such information might not identify you personally, we strongly encourage you to become familiar with the privacy practices of those sites.
- (2) Personally identifiable information
BridgeWave has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of that visitor information which is under our control. Unfortunately, no security system, or system of transmitting data over the Internet, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result of the foregoing, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers, the means by which information is transmitted between your computer and BridgeWave's servers, or any information provided to us or to any third party through or in connection with the Site. You provide all such information at your own risk.
Changing or Deleting Personal Information
If you would like to have your personally identifiable information removed from BridgeWave's database, please contact us at webmaster@BridgeWave.com, and we will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request. Keep in mind, however, that there will be residual information that will remain within BridgeWave databases, access logs and other records, which may or may not contain such personally identifiable information. The residual information will not be used for commercial purposes; however, BridgeWave reserves the right, from time to time, to re-contact former customers or visitors to the Site.
BridgeWave reserves the right to transfer any and all information that we collect from visitors, or that we otherwise collect concerning the Site, to a third party in the event of a sale or transfer of assets or of any portion of our business.
Offline vs. Online Practices
Please note that this Policy applies solely to our online information-gathering and dissemination practices in connection with the Site, and does not apply to any of our practices conducted offline, with the following exception. BridgeWave may merge information collected about you through offline means, such as product warranty cards that you return to us, with data about you that is stored in our databases.
