Pistus Inc. is at all times interested in providing you with the best possible user experience. Part of our service to you includes a strong commitment to the privacy website visitors and software users. To that end, we endeavor to provide you with a safe, secure service and use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the information you submit to us remains private and is used only for the expressed purpose of performing services for our users. The following statements provide additional details about our privacy commitment.
General Information and Disclosure of Information Received from Website Visitors.
We gather information about our website visitors collectively, tracking such things as pages visited, number of searches performed, keywords used in searches, etc. We only use this information anonymously and in the aggregate. This information allows us to create a better overall experience for you by gauging the level of traffic, speed, and overall performance of our Web site. We may share this information, in the aggregate, with our vendors and advertisers to help them better understand our Web site and the services we offer. When we do this, no information is released that would specifically identify you.
User Specific Information for Pistus Users and Their Employees.
Pistus gathers information from our users that is necessary to perform the selected business tasks that we are obliged to perform on pursuant to the terms and conditions of our Client Services Agreement. All company and personal information are kept confidential.
Who does Pistus share my information with?
Pistus will not share users' information with any third parties who do not have a legitimate business need to know and/or have not been authorized to receive the information. Obviously, the information relative to a given user's employees will be shared with that user. However, no information about a given user or any of their employees will be "cross-shared" with any other Pistus user. Where possible, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third-party service providers are obligated to protect your Personal Information on our behalf.
How does Pistus keep my information safe?
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We restrict access to our users' information that we keep in our offices. Only employees who need such information to perform a specific job are granted access to it.
We cannot and do not act as insurers of the security of your Personal Information, particularly when it is transmitted over the Internet. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any disclosure of data due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third-party access or other acts of third parties, or acts or omissions beyond our reasonable control. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A note about Children's privacy
Pistus Inc. does not collect information specific to children and does not target children as users. We believe that all children should have the consent of a parent or guardian prior to accessing the Pistus Web Site. Inasmuch as we cannot control a child's access to our site, we encourage parents to utilize Web filtering technology to help supervise a child's use of this Web site and the Internet in general.
Log Files or "Cookies"

Further, our server is hosted by IBM, and IBM monitors traffic for the purposes of maintaining the security of our Web Site.
