Privacy Policy

Updated on November 28, 2009

Information we collect and how we use it

You may choose to provide personal information (such as your name, address, telephone number and email address) on this web site. If you email us through any of the email addresses linked from this site, we ask you for information such as your name and email address so we can respond to your questions and comments. You may choose to provide additional information as well. You may choose to provide personal information through assessments linked from this website. Assessment services linked from this site may be operated by third party providers of such services. You may choose to provide information through assessments at your sole discretion. We reserve the right to collect and retain data from assessments. Our privacy policy may or may not reflect that of third party providers of assessments.

Non-personal information

We may collect certain aggregate and non-personal information when you visit this web site. Aggregate and non-personal information does not relate to a single identifiable visitor. It tells us such things as how many users visited our site and the pages accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our web site to our visitors. We may collect this information through “cookie” technology as explained below.

Cookies

Like many companies, we may use browser cookies on this web site. Browser cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain web sites. We use browser cookies to tell us, for example, whether you’ve visited us before or if you’re a new visitor and to help us identify site features in which you may have the greatest interest. Browser cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new browser cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new browser cookie, and how to disable existing browser cookies. Remember though, without browser cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all our web site features. We may also use flash cookies on our web site to enhance your online experience. Flash cookies are similar to browser cookies, except that they can store data more complex than simple text. Flash cookies, by themselves, cannot do anything to or with the data on your computer. In addition, flash cookies cannot access or remember your email address or other personal information unless you provide the information on this site. We may use flash cookies to provide you with a better user experience.

Information we share

We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal information about our web site visitors, except as described here. We may share information provided by our visitors to competingvalues.com with service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf. We may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use personal information you have provided through this web site in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.

Information we transfer

We may transfer the personal information we collect on this site to other countries where we do business, but we will do so only for the purposes described above. When we transfer your information to other countries, we will protect that information as described here unless otherwise required by applicable laws.

Links to other sites

We provide links to other web sites for your convenience and information. These sites may have their own privacy statements in place, which we recommend you review if you visit any linked web sites. We are not responsible for the content of linked sites or any use of the sites.

Links to other sites

This web site is not directed to children under the age of eighteen and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of eighteen on the site. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personal information from a visitor under the age of eighteen on the site, we will delete the information from our records.

Some links on competingvalues.com may take web site visitors to sites that are directed to kids (such as links to articles). These web sites have their own privacy notices that address children’s privacy. We encourage you to read these privacy notices if you visit any linked sites directed to children.

This Privacy Statement may be updated periodically and without prior notice to you to reflect changes in our online information practices.
