2155 Butterfield Dr. Suite 111
Troy, Michigan, 48084, USA

NEXTEP SYSTEMS is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the NEXTEP SYSTEMS Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the NEXTEP SYSTEMS website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Children and Data Collection

NEXTEP SYSTEMS adheres to the federal privacy protection standards as stated in the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). We care about the safety of children. We will not knowingly allow anyone under 13 to provide us any personally identifying information. Children under 13 years of age are required to obtain the express permission of a parent or guardian before submitting any Personal Information about themselves (such as their names, e-mail address, and phone number) over the Internet. If a child has provided us with personally-identifiable information without the consent of a parent or guardian, the parent or guardian of that child should contact the Privacy Officer immediately at privacyofficer@nextepsystems.com. We will use reasonable efforts to promptly delete the child’s information from our servers.

Collection of your Personal Information

NEXTEP SYSTEMS collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. NEXTEP SYSTEMS also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by NEXTEP SYSTEMS. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by NEXTEP SYSTEMS for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the NEXTEP SYSTEMS Web site.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through NEXTEP SYSTEMS public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: NEXTEP SYSTEMS does not read any of your private online communications.

NEXTEP SYSTEMS encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from NEXTEP SYSTEMS so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. NEXTEP SYSTEMS is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the NEXTEP SYSTEMS and NEXTEP SYSTEMS family of Web sites.

Use of your Personal Information

NEXTEP SYSTEMS collects and uses your personal information to operate the NEXTEP SYSTEMS Web site and deliver the services you have requested. NEXTEP SYSTEMS also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from NEXTEP SYSTEMS and its affiliates. NEXTEP SYSTEMS may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

NEXTEP SYSTEMS does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. NEXTEP SYSTEMS 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, NEXTEP SYSTEMS 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 NEXTEP SYSTEMS, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

NEXTEP SYSTEMS does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

NEXTEP SYSTEMS keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within NEXTEP SYSTEMS, in order to determine what NEXTEP SYSTEMS services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within NEXTEP SYSTEMS to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

NEXTEP SYSTEMS Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, 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 NEXTEP SYSTEMS or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of NEXTEP SYSTEMS; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of NEXTEP SYSTEMS, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The NEXTEP SYSTEMS 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 you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
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 NEXTEP SYSTEMS pages, or register with NEXTEP SYSTEMS site or services, a cookie helps NEXTEP SYSTEMS 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 NEXTEP SYSTEMS Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the NEXTEP SYSTEMS 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 NEXTEP SYSTEMS services or Web sites you visit.
