Aggregate Information

The Site collects information about the use of the Site that is maintained, used and disclosed in aggregate form only and which will not contain your personally identifiable information, for example, without limitation, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, browser type, External Web Sites (defined below) linked to and IP addresses. We may analyze this data for trends and statistics in the aggregate, and we may use such aggregate information to administer and improve the Site, track users’ movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Disclosure

We may provide your personally identifiable information and the data generated by cookies and the aggregate information to the vendors and service agencies that we may engage to assist us in providing our services to you for their use solely to provide us with such assistance.
We will also disclose your personally identifiable information (a) if we are required to do so by law, regulation or other government authority or otherwise in cooperation with an ongoing investigation of a governmental authority, (b) to enforce the Neo Technology Terms of Use agreement or to protect our rights or (c) to protect the safety of users of our Site and our services. We will not sell your personally identifiable information to any company or organization, but we may transfer your personally identifiable information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which Neo Technology participates or to a purchaser or acquirer of all or substantially all of Neo Technology’s assets to which this Site relates.

Such links do not constitute an endorsement by Neo Technology of those External Web Sites. You acknowledge that Neo Technology is providing these links to you only as a convenience, and further agree that Neo Technology is not responsible for the content of such External Web Sites.

Accessing and Updating Personally Identifiable Information

Neo Technology allows an individual access to their personally identifiable information and allows the individual to correct, amend or delete inaccurate information, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the privacy of the individual in the case in question or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.  Neo Technology provides you with the ability to review and update the registration information that you provide to us by contacting us at [EMAIL].

Notice to Users Outside of the United States of America

Any information you enter on this Site may be transferred outside of the country in which you are located to the United States of America which does not offer an equivalent level of protection to that required in other countries, such as the European Union. In particular, you are advised that the United States of America uses a sectoral model of privacy protection that relies on a mix of legislation, governmental regulation, and self-regulation. Article 26 of the European Union’s Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC, 1995 O.J. (L 281) 31) allows for transfer of personal data from the European Union to a third country if the individual has unambiguously given his consent to the transfer of personally identifiable information, regardless of the third country’s level of protection. By using this Site or the services, you consent to the transfer of all such information to the United States of America which may not offer an equivalent level of protection to that required in the European Union and to the processing of that information by Neo Technology on its servers located in the United States of America as described in this Privacy Policy.

Privacy Policy Updates

Neo Technology may need to update this Privacy Policy from time to time. If so, Neo Technology will post our updated Privacy Policy on our Site along with notice that the Privacy Policy has been changed so you are aware of what personally identifiable information we may collect and how we may use this information. Neo Technology may also send registered users of the Site e-mail notifications notifying such users of any material changes to the Privacy Policy. Neo Technology encourages you to review this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes. Your continued use of this Site and/or continued provision of personally identifiable information to us will be subject to the terms of the then-current Privacy Policy.
