Use of Web Technologies
We use a variety of technologies on our site. Among these are cookies; a piece of information that our website provides to your browser when you visit our site. Cookies allow us to verify the login status of visitors using services linked directly with our website, track point of entry to point of registration for those visitors participating in our email signup programs, and to track and measure the success of a particular email campaign.

Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. If you choose to disable cookies, you may still use our site; however, you may have limited access to some areas within our website.
The major browsers have attempted to implement the draft “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (“W3C”) in their web browsers. As this standard has not been finalized, Our sites are not compatible with DNT and so do not recognize DNT settings.
For information on all of these categories of cookies, and for more information generally on cookies please refer to aboutcookies.org.
We also keep track of activity on our website via log files stored on our web servers. We collect information such as IP address, browser type and version, and pages you view. We also keep track of how you got to our site and any links you click on to leave our site. Once you leave our site, we do not track you. We use your website activity to assist us in offering you a personalized Web experience, assist you with technical support, diagnose problems with our server, administer our website and to tailor our informational offerings to you.
We do not disclose any Personal Information about you to any third parties except as stated in this Privacy Statement, as otherwise permitted by law, or authorized by you.
Third parties to whom we disclose information are required by law and contractual undertakings to keep your Personal Information confidential and secure, and to use and disclose it for purposes that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances, in compliance with all applicable legislation.
If these third parties wish to use your Personal Information for any other purpose, they will have a legal obligation to notify you of this and, where required, to obtain your consent.
In the normal course of performing services for our clients, Personal Information may be shared within Avoq and its affiliates for research and statistical purposes, system administration and crime prevention or detection. When you supply us with information containing third party Personal Information (names, addresses, or other information relating to living individuals), we will hold and use that Personal Information to perform general insurance and other services for you on the understanding that the individuals to whom the Personal Information relates have been informed of the reason(s) for obtaining the Personal Information, the fact that it may be disclosed to third parties such as Avoq, and have consented to such disclosure and use.
Because a number of the service providers we use are located in the United States, including certain Avoq affiliates, your Personal Information may be processed and stored inside the United States, and the U.S. government, courts, or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your Personal Information under U.S. laws.
Avoq’s service suppliers adhere to the same protections regarding the collection, use, and retention of data as we do.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy assets. In such transactions, user information, including Personal Information, generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, if either Avoq itself or substantially all of Avoq assets were acquired, your Personal Information may be one of the transferred assets. Therefore, we may disclose and/or transfer your Personal Information to a third party purchaser in these circumstances

California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 requires any operator of a website to permit its California-resident customers to request and obtain from the operator a list of what personal information the operator disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes, for the preceding calendar year; and the addresses and names of such third parties. Avoq does not share any personal information collected from this site with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
We take every precaution to protect the confidentiality and security of your Personal Information by using industry-recognized security safeguards such as firewalls, coupled with carefully developed security procedures to protect your information from loss, misuse or unauthorized alteration. When we ask for sensitive information, we protect it through the use of encryption during transmission, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Avoq takes care to reinforce the importance of our website visitors’ security and privacy among our employees. Our employees are trained and required to safeguard your information and, using physical, electronic and procedural safeguards, we restrict access to Personal Information to those employees and agents for business purposes only.
