How We Use Your Personal Information

SIP’s primary goal in collecting personal information from you is to provide you with an efficient, meaningful and customized experience. SIP stores collected information in a secure database hosted offsite to fulfill your requests for certain services.

SIP will never sell or rent your personally identifiable information to other companies.

SIP will share your personally identifiable information with other companies only when:

  • We provide your information to companies, such as web site developers or sales representatives, that assist us in providing you with services that you request.
  • We are required by law to provide your information;
  • We find that your actions on our web site violate our Terms of Use agreement that you agree to by using our web site; or
  • We may sell or otherwise transfer such information to a successor of SIP or any subsidiary or division of SIP in connection with an asset sale, merger, consolidation, divestiture, stock sale or other corporate transaction, or by way of assignment (whether by operation of law or otherwise) in connection with any such or similar transaction or in connection with the administration of a bankruptcy estate. Your information will continue to be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy by the acquiring or merged company unless you are notified and provided an opportunity to change your preferences.

SIP may identify you in connection with your use of certain aspects of this Site. SIP may internally use your personal information to improve SIP's marketing and promotional efforts, to improve the Site's content and/or layout, and to determine general marketplace information about visitors to this Site. By visiting the Site and providing SIP with data, you acknowledge and agree that due to the international dimension of the company, SIP may use the data collected as set forth in this Privacy Policy, and to provide the information to other SIP businesses and selected third parties which may be outside your resident jurisdiction. In addition, such data may be stored on servers located in other jurisdictions. By providing SIP with your data, you consent to the transfer of such data.

European Union Users

If you are an individual resident in a Member State of the European Union, you acknowledge and agree that SIP may collect, use and disclose your personal data as described in this Privacy Policy, or any amendments hereto. You further acknowledge and agree that we may transfer your personal data outside of the European Union for purposes described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Site.

Security

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our users is of great concern to us. Only those employees who need access to our users’ information in order to do their jobs are allowed access, as described above. While SIP strives to protect your personal or company information by encryption and other means, SIP cannot guarantee or warrant the security of the information you transmit to us, and if you choose to use the Site, you do so at your own risk. Additionally, in providing your information over a public or third party network, you do so at your own risk. Please keep in mind that the information disclosed by you on the Site -- for example, information you may provide to others on bulletin boards or in chat rooms that may be available on the Site -- can be collected and used by visitors to the Site.

WHILE SIP HAS TAKEN COMMERCIALLY REASONABLE PRECAUTIONS TO SAFEGUARD YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, SIP CANNOT GUARANTEE COMPLETE SECURITY BECAUSE COMPLETE SECURITY DOES NOT PRESENTLY EXIST ON THE INTERNET.

Opt Out/Corrections

Upon your request, SIP will (a) remove your personal information from SIP's database (which might cancel your subscription to this Site or a portion of this Site); or (b) correct or update your personal information. You can request that SIP remove, correct or update your personal information at the "Contact Us" section of this Site.

Please note that SIP is not responsible for any content or the privacy practices of any web site other than our own site.
