Our Privacy Commitment
We will not share any private information that personally identifies you (”personal or business information”) with any third party unless we have your consent; or to protect our rights or property; or as required by operation of law or the request of government regulators.
What Information We Collect
As a standard practice, Guard 1 requests an e-mail address from every potential customer requesting a PADCenter™ demo and individuals completing an on-line application. We will occasionally send e-mails to follow up on PADCenter™ demo requests and on-line application submissions.
Guard 1 may also collect certain non-personal public data in the course of normal business. Examples of this non-personal data include web log information such as your web browser, operating system, pages visited, time of day, source IP address, browser type and ISP, among others. From time to time, Guard 1 may purchase personal information from outside sources. This information is used to identify potential new customers, as well as analyze the existing customer base. The information purchased from outside sources is strictly for internal use and is not sold or shared.
How We Collect Information
Guard 1 collects business and personal information that is provided voluntarily by you on one of our information forms. To fully utilize Guard 1’s services, potential customers are required to provide certain business information. Guard 1 may also collect non-personal information from all visitors to the company web site. The collection of this non-personal information is done using a variety of technologies, including log analysis, “cookies” and “web beacons.” None of our methods for collecting this information allow for the collection of personal information. The information collected is used to help tailor the visitor’s web site experience, including but not limited to meaningful information.
How We Use Your Information
Guard 1 primarily uses the business information you provide to schedule PADCenter™ demos, and information provided by an applicant is used as a first step for employment consideration. Guard 1 is constantly looking to improve our marketing and operational services. At times, Guard 1 may combine non-personal public information that is collected automatically via the internet with business information. We may also enhance or merge information with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes. This merged and combined data is for internal use only and is not shared or sold.
Except in the event of a business transfer or acquisition, Guard 1 will not share, trade or sell personal information about customers to others. When businesses acquire other businesses or sell all or substantial portions of a business, customer information generally is one of the transferred assets. If all or substantially all of Guard 1’s assets are transferred through merger, acquisition, bankruptcy or any other change of corporate control, then customer information will be one of the transferred assets. All employees, contractors and other independent companies engaged by Guard 1 to perform work that involves access to personal information are contractually required to keep the information confidential and private and are not permitted to use it in any way other than what is necessary to perform their work for Guard 1.
Guard 1 is committed to keeping our customers’ business data and personal application information private and secure. Guard 1 works hard to take reasonable precautions to protect our customers’ business and applicants’ personal information from loss, misuse or alteration. These precautions include limiting access to such information to Guard 1 authorized individuals only. Business and personal information is destroyed once it is determined to be outdated or of no use. Guard 1 employees, contractors or agents who have access to business or personal information are required by agreement to keep the information confidential and are not permitted to use this information for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for Guard 1.
