The Information TechExcel Collects
Log File Information
When you use the TechExcel Sites, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
When you visit the TechExcel Sites, we may send one or more cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. TechExcel uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the TechExcel Sites may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
TechExcel contains links to other sites and file downloads from other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such web sites.
The Way TechExcel Uses Information
If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the TechExcel Sites, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the TechExcel Sites.
Any personal information or video content that you voluntarily disclose online (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, within your public profile page, etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others. Your account name (not your email address) is displayed to other Users when you upload videos or send messages through the TechExcel Sites and other Users can contact you through messages and comments. Any content that you submit to the TechExcel Sites may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by the general public.
We do not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may, however, use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major TechExcel Site changes or for customer service purposes).
Our Commitment To Data Security
TechExcel uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to TechExcel and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, TechExcel makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
If TechExcel learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. TechExcel may post a notice on the TechExcel Sites if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice) you should notify us using this contact form.
