Voluntarily supplied information is requested only when activating the following Services: signing up for our Mailing List, sharing your astute thoughts regarding our blog posts, or submitting information through our various forms.

Sparkling Logic serves as the data controller of your personal information. When you provide your information directly to us, this information is used by Sparkling Logic solely for the purposes identified at the point you provide it.

Sparkling Logic often performs the role of data processor in our relationship with clients when we receive personal data and execute marketing, communication or public relations initiatives on their behalf.

HOW WE USE AND SHARE INFORMATION

Personal Information

Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell, trade, rent or otherwise share for marketing purposes your Personal Information with third parties without your consent. We do share Personal Information with vendors who are performing services for our Company, such as the servers for our email communications who are provided access to a visitor’s email address for purposes of sending emails from us. Those vendors use your Personal Information only at our direction and in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

In general, the Personal Information you provide to us is used to help us communicate with you. For example, we may use Personal Information to contact our visitors in response to questions, solicit feedback, request survey responses, and provide technical support.

We reserve the right to share Personal Information with outside parties if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to meet any applicable legal process or enforceable governmental request; address fraud, security or technical concerns; or to protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of our visitors or the public as required or permitted by law.

Non-Personal Information

In general, we use Non-Personal Information to help us improve our Website, available Services, and customize the visitor experience. We also aggregate Non-Personal Information in order to track trends and analyze use patterns on our Website. This Privacy Policy does not limit in any way our use or disclosure of Non-Personal Information and we reserve the right to use and disclose such Non-Personal Information to our partners, advertisers and other third parties at our discretion.

In the event we undergo a business transaction such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your Personal Information may be among the assets transferred. You acknowledge and consent that such transfers may occur and are permitted by this Privacy Policy, and that any acquirer of our assets may continue to process your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If our information practices change at any time in the future, we will post the policy changes to our Website so that you may opt out of the new information practices. We suggest that you check our Website periodically if you are concerned about how your information is used.

HOW WE RETAIN AND PROTECT INFORMATION

The length of time we keep information we collect about you depends on the type of information, which is described in further detail below.

Sparkling Logic retains Personal Information that you provide to us where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so. That may include as long as is required in order to contact you about our Services, or as needed to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to handle your Personal Information, we securely delete the information or, if this is not possible, then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible. We will delete this information at an earlier date if you request, as described in “Your Rights Regarding the Use of Your Personal Information” below.

If you choose to receive marketing communications from us, we retain the information for a reasonable period of time from the date you last expressed interest in our Services, for instance, when you last opened an email from us.

We retain information derived from cookies and other tracking technologies for a reasonable period of time from the date such information was created.

Sparkling Logic implements certain technological security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access including encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology. However, these measures do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. By using our Services, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
