Protecting your privacy is very important to us!
 
ALTHOS PRIVACY POLICY
Protecting your privacy is important to Althos. We strive to keep your personal information confidential. By ensuring that you are aware of and understand the Althos Customer Privacy Policy, we can provide you with better service. Please take a moment to read the following policy to learn how we handle your personal information.
 
Why we collect personal information
Althos collects and uses your personal information to give you superior customer service, to provide you with convenient access to our products and services, and to make a wider range available to you. In addition, we use your personal information to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, product updates, special offers, and other information we think you’d like to hear about. From time to time, we may also use your personal information to contact you to participate in a market research survey, so that we can gauge customer satisfaction and develop better products.
 
How we collect personal information
We collect information about you by asking to be included in an email mailing list, we collect and store the information you provide in a secure database.
 
How we protect your personal information
Althos safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
 
Collecting other personal information
When you browse Althos’s website, you are able to do so anonymously. Generally, we don’t collect personal information when you browse — not even your email address. Your browser, however, does automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system you are using.
 
Like many websites, the Althos website uses “cookie” technology. When you first connect to our site, the cookie identifies your browser with a unique, random number. The cookies we use do not reveal any personal information about you, except perhaps your first name so we can welcome you on your next visit. Cookies help us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how long they spend there. We use cookies to study traffic patterns on our site so we can make the site even better.
 
In some of our email to you, we use a “click-through URL.” When you click one of these URLs, you pass through our web server before arriving at the website that is your destination. We track click-throughs to help us determine your interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.
 
Our company wide commitment to privacy
To make sure your personal information remains confidential, we communicate these privacy guidelines to every Althos employee. In addition, Althos participates in industry initiatives—such as the Online Privacy Alliance (http://www.privacyalliance.org) and TRUST—to preserve privacy rights on the Internet and in all aspects of electronic commerce.
 
Althos does not knowingly solicit personal information from children or send them requests for personal information.
 
Althos's website contains links to other sites. Althos does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.
 
If we are going to use your personal information differently from that stated at the time of collection, we will try to contact you via email using the most recent information we have. If you have not given us permission to communicate with you, you will not be contacted, nor will we use your personal information in a new manner.
 
The Althos Customer Privacy Policy is subject to change at any time. We encourage you to review the privacy policy regularly for any changes.
