TeamSoper Plain English Privacy Statement

Revised: April 15, 2013

TeamSoper is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy. We've structured our web sites so that, in general, you can visit TeamSoper on the Web without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information.

Once you choose to provide us personally identifiable information (any information by which you can be identified), you can be assured that it will only be used to support your customer relationship with TeamSoper. On the TeamSoper Insider E-News service, personal information you provide is considered publicly available over the Internet.

This statement regarding the privacy of the personally identifiable information you provide online covers the five foundation principles of fair information: Awareness, Choice, Accuracy & Access, Security, and Oversight.

 

Awareness

TeamSoper provides this Online Privacy Statement to make you aware of our privacy policy, practices and of 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 on our homepage and from the bottom of every TeamSoper.com web page.

What we collect

On some TeamSoper web sites, you can order products or services, make requests, and register to receive materials. The types of personal information collected at these pages are name, contact and billing information, transaction, and credit card information. On the TeamSoper Insider E-News service, you supply the personal and business contact information you choose.

In order to tailor our subsequent communications to you and continuously improve our products and services, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, experience with our services, and more detailed contact preferences. Some electronic newsletters record anonymous data about articles you have expressed interest in.

Some TeamSoper.com web pages use cookies, a data analysis technique.

How we use it

TeamSoper uses your information to better understand your needs and provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, to communicate back to you, to update you on service and benefits, and to personalize our web sites for you.

From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or market research contact. We will also follow local requirements, such as allowing you to opt in before receiving unsolicited contact, where applicable.

Who we share it with

TeamSoper will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others. Unless we have your permission or are required by law, we will only share the personal data you provide online with other TeamSoper independent professionals and/or business partners who are acting on our behalf for the uses described in "how we use it". Such TeamSoper independent professionals and/or business partners, including those in the United States and/or any other countries, are governed by our privacy policies with respect to the use of this data and are bound by the appropriate confidentiality agreements.

Choice

TeamSoper will not use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without first letting you know and offering you a choice. As previously stated, we will also provide you the opportunity to let us know if you do not wish to receive unsolicited direct marketing materials from us and we will do everything we can to honor such requests.

Your permission is always secured first, should we ever share your information with third parties that are not acting on our behalf and governed by our privacy policy.

Accuracy & Access

TeamSoper strives to keep your personally identifiable information accurate. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access or enabling you to make additions, corrections or changes in the information you have provided us. To opt-out of future TeamSoper contact, provide your name, e-mail and/or address and relevant information about subscriptions you may have with TeamSoper. This opt-out will cancel all marketing and support communication and newsletters, including TeamSoper Insider E-News. Certain areas of TeamSoper's web sites may limit access to specific individuals through the use of passwords and through providing personally data.

Links to third party web sites on the site are provided solely as a convenience to you. If you use these links, you will leave the TeamSoper site. TeamSoper has not reviewed all of these third party sites and does not control and is not responsible for any of these sites, their content or their privacy policy. Thus, TeamSoper does not endorse or make any representations about them, or any information, products or materials found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. If you decide to access any of the third party sites linked to this site, you do so at your own risk.

Security

TeamSoper is committed to ensuring the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We use encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. Preventing credit card fraud is important to protect your personal financial data security.

Oversight

If you have comments or questions about our privacy policy, please send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and include "Privacy" as your subject line.

How TeamSoper uses cookies

Currently TeamSoper does not use cookies. However, our plan is to develop this capability in the future to make this site respond to your preferences. When cookies are added to this site, the privacy statement will be updated to reflect they are operational.

A cookie is a piece of text asking permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. If you agree, then your browser adds the text in a small file. The purpose of a cookie is to help us analyze web traffic or let us know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow a web application to respond to you as an individual. By gathering and remembering information about your preferences, the web application can tailor its operation to your needs, likes and dislikes.

TeamSoper uses traffic log cookies to identify what pages are being used and which ones aren't. This helps us aggregate and analyze data about web page traffic and make improvements to TeamSoper.com web sites to better meet customer needs. In this case, TeamSoper uses this information only for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system. That is the case of many of our support and information-sharing pages and forums. Denial of a traffic log cookie should not prevent you from using one of these sites.

The TeamSoper.com web site uses temporary cookies as part of the customer web navigation experience, tracking unique user IDs for that particular web site session only. This cookie, by itself, only tells us that a previous TeamSoper.com visitor has returned. If you deny the cookie, you can still use the site anonymously. At TeamSoper.com, you may receive a persistent cookie when ordering information. Customers can browse with cookies turned off, but you may only order materials if you accept the cookie.

Overall, cookies help us give you a better web site to use, by letting us monitor what's working and what isn't through site traffic analysis. TeamSoper wants to be sure you understand that accepting a cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you, other than the data you chose to share with us. This practice is strictly enforced. We know that a lot of people have concerns about cookies, but in talking with many of our clients, we believe that the benefit we both gain from their proper use is worthwhile. We value the relationships we have with our clients, so we respect these concerns. TeamSoper works to continuously improve the TeamSoper.com web experience and personal data privacy policy and practices.

You may set your web browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator) to notify you of cookie placement requests or decline cookies completely. You can delete the files that contains cookies; those files are stored as part of your internet browser.
