Note: 15dots does not read any of your private online communications that are not sent to 15dots or through the 15dots Web Site.
15dots encourages you to review the privacy statements of other Web sites you choose to link to, from the 15dots Web Site, so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. 15dots is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the 15dots and 15dots family of Web sites.
Use of your Personal Information
15dots collects and uses your personal information to operate the 15dots Web site and deliver the services you have requested. 15dots also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from 15dots and its affiliates. 15dots may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
15dots does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. 15dots may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, 15dots may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to 15dots, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
15dots does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
15dots keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit on or in the 15dots Web Site. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within 15dots to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
15dots Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice to you, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on 15dots or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of 15dots; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of 15dots, or the public.
The 15dots Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to an internet browser, browser session, or user, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize 15dots pages, or register with 15dots site or services, a cookie helps 15dots to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same 15dots Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the 15dots features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the 15dots Web Site.
Security of your Personal Information
15dots secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. 15dots secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

15dots will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. 15dots encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how 15dots is protecting your information.
