You can learn more about cookies and similar technologies, including details of how to manage or disable them by visiting http://aboutcookies.org/ or consulting your browser’s privacy features. Some ways of managing traditional cookies may not impact the use of other technologies, but certain browsers may offer their own tools for removing HTML5. Please note that disabling technologies like cookies may prevent you from using the full functionality of the Heijar homepage and Heijar and Heijar  as well as services like the life-chat may not work as we intended.

 

 

We partner with third parties (like analytics companies) to help us improve the Heijar homepage and offer you better service and more relevant content, as well as to support our marketing initiatives. These companies may collect anonym info from you automatically in connection with your visit.

 

 

In addition to the technologies we place, other companies may set their own cookies or similar tools when you visit the Heijar homepage.

For example, we use third-party analytics providers (like Google Analytics) to help evaluate and report on use of the Heijar homepage. These companies may set and read their own cookies and similar technologies to gather info about your online activities across websites and services.

Some analytics providers and ad companies offer  you choices about how they collect and use info directly on their websites. To learn more about opting out of Google Analytics, click here.

You may also be able to opt-out in some cases by visitinghttp://www.aboutads.info or http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ or if you’re located in the EU or Canada,http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/ or http://youradchoices.ca/ respectively.

 

Please note that opting-out of interest-based advertising won’t necessarily entirely prevent info from being collected automatically.

 

 

We use and share your info in accordance with the legal bases set out below to help us provide, operate, improve, understand, customize, support and market Heijar and the Heijar homepage.

 

 

We use and share your info (i) to provide the services under the Terms, (ii) with your consent, (iii) in your and our legitimate interests (such as safety and security, and providing a tailored service), and (iv) for other legal reasons.

 

 

We rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, share, and otherwise process the info we have about you for the purposes described in this Policy. These legal bases include:

 

as is necessary to perform the Terms and Conditions and to provide Heijar; where you have consented to the processing, which you may revoke at any time; for Heijar Software to comply with a legal obligation, a court order, or to exercise and defend legal claims; and where necessary for the purposes of Heijar Software’s or a third party’s legitimate interests, such as those of visitors, users or partners.

 

 

We use the info we collect (both individually and in combination with other info collected under this policy) to help us operate our business, provide and improve our products and services, communicate with you, and advertise effectively. The particular ways we use your info often depend on how you use Heijar.

  • Protect users and third parties (such as to help prevent serious injury or crime); and Protect our own rights, property, and operations (like enforcing our contracts and terms — including the Terms and conditions — and pursuing available remedies or limiting the damages we may sustain).

 

We don’t share info that directly identifies you (such as your email or home address) with independent third parties without your knowledge except as described in this policy (like if we’re required to do so by law).

If we ever stop providing the Heijar SaaS (like if we’re bought out), we may share your info with the buyer. Lastly, remember the stuff you share in social features (like comments) is public — please be careful about how you use them!

 

We also share info with service providers that operate on our behalf for the purposes discussed in this policy. For example, when you buy a subscription for Heijar, we’ll share your payment-related info with entities we’ve engaged to process payments and provide similar financial services (like fraud prevention). Other common examples include partners that help us store data and provide Support services.

 

If you share info publicly through interactive features we control, such as comments on our blog, you should understand that this info is public not private. We reserve the right (but have no obligation) to monitor your use of them.

We may disclose player info in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer, or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets, or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings). This means your info may be one of the assets transferred to the acquiring entity in such situations so that you can continue to use Heijar.

We work with third parties to make your experience better, but our policy doesn’t and can’t apply to entities we don’t own, control, or instruct. We’re unable to guarantee that independent third parties adhere to the same practices as us, so please be sure to read their policies and terms before sharing info with them.

 

There are several ways you might share info with third-party websites or services in connection with your visit, including:

 

External Links. If you click on links to external websites or services that are operated by third parties, they may collect, use, and share your info pursuant to their own policies (not ours). Including a link to or from third-party services doesn’t mean we’ve endorsed their practices.

Account Integrations. The Heijar homepage uses interfaces that allow you to interact with third-party websites, applications, or similar services during your visit, including on an account you’ve created with such third parties. For example, we partner with social media companies to provide features that facilitate social sharing and connections (such as the Facebook “Like” button and other widgets). These features may collect info about your interactions with them and the Heijar homepage, and may use technologies like cookies to function properly. How third-party companies like Facebook process your info is controlled by their own privacy policies.

SECURITY

 

We’re committed to securing user info, but can’t guarantee the security of any data we collect from you. By choosing to share info with us (or anybody else online these days), you’re acknowledging this risk.

 

 

We use appropriate physical, technical, and organizational security safeguards to help protect your info from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure both during transmission and in storage. For example, we use computer systems with limited access in controlled facilities to store info. We also use technologies like encryption and hashing to protect some of the info we collect.

However, please note that no server, communications network, or data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. The Heijar AIS and Heijar homepage are no exception. We can’t guarantee the security of any info transmitted through the Heijar services and make no assurances about our ability to prevent any such loss or misuse.

It’s up to you whether you’d like to share info with us; if you do, you’re acknowledging that you’re doing so with this risk.

 

UPDATES AND REVISIONS

 

We’ll make changes to this policy over time to keep you better informed about how we handle user info.

 

 

We’ll update our privacy policy from time to time to reflect changes in technology, law, our business operations, or any other reason we determine is necessary or appropriate. When we do make changes, we’ll update the “Last Modified” date at the top of the policy, post it to the news on the Heijar homepage and send you a link where you can read and accept the new privacy policy. If we make material changes to the policy or the ways we process user info, we’ll provide you additional notice as well (such as by prominently posting a notice of the changes on the Heijar services before they take e”ect or sending you a notification directly).
