Privacy Policy

Into each life, some legalese must fall . . .

We apologize and promise to keep it as plain English as we can. Hopefully we can, simply, keep you appropriately informed and still satisfy the lawyers without straining either relationship.

In short, Guided Star will not sell, rent, lease or otherwise provide your personal information to others.

Introduction

Guided Star is absolutely committed to protecting your privacy, online and off. To provide you with the best possible service, Guided Star from time to time may ask for personal information. This policy is to make you aware as to what type of information is gathered and tracked, what the information is for, and with whom the information is shared.

Information Gathered and How it is Used

Today, you can browse all areas on the Web Site without giving us personal information. However, there may be certain elective areas of the Guided Star Web Site, where you will be asked for personal information to correspond with you, provide service and support, present a more personalized experience as you navigate the sites, process your orders, or supply you with requested information. The Guided Star Web Site may ask for information such as a user’s first, last, and business name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and job description. The information you provide through the Information Request Forms or Email is only shared with the associated staff the user has specified to engage in communications or transactions. We require that all of our associates agree to abide by the restrictions on use and disclosure of personal information set out here.

Shared Information

Unless Guided Star is required by law, Guided Star will not sell, rent, lease or otherwise provide your personal information to others. The information gathered will only be used to provide you with the services requested. Please remember that when you submit information to discussion groups or other forums, the information submitted will be deemed public information and will not be considered confidential.

Cookies and Other Technologies

The Guided Star Web Site uses "Cookies" which are small pieces of anonymous information that are placed on a web user's hard drive to provide you with better service and to assist Guided Star in Web Site traffic analysis. The use of cookies is an industry standard, and most Web Sites use them to provide useful features for their customers. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies. However, you may not be able to take full advantage of the functionality of the site if you do so.

Choice/Opt-out

If you decide to submit an information request form or email us you may occasionally receive information through announcement messages or newsletters. If you do not wish to receive our marketing materials and promotion communications, you may opt-out when submitting your personal information or by sending us an email or responding to the opt-out link enclosed in all such communications.

Links

We place links to relevant, outside resources and advertisers within the Guided Star Web Site. Be aware Guided Star is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other sites.

Security

Only employees or contractors who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. We employ many industry standard security practices to protect our systems and data. Furthermore, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.

Policy Updates

We may update this policy from time to time and if we decide to use personal information in a manner different than disclosed, we commit we will provide notice of any changes before implementing them, thus providing you an opportunity to opt-out.
