GENERAL PRIVACY PRINCIPLES
"Personally Identifying Information" is information that individually identifies you, such as your name, company name, physical address, phone numbers, email address and any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact you. Assess Central asks for your Personally Identifying Information so that it can understand your needs, determine if Assess Centrals’ products and services meet your needs, inform you about its products and services that it believes may be of interest to you, or comply with the law. Of course, you may choose not to provide Assess Central with Personally Identifying Information. However, this choice may prevent Assess Central from providing you with the product, service or information you requested or that could be offered to you. Our server does not automatically record Personally Identifying Information. Such information can become known to Assess Central via its websites only when you voluntarily submit it.
Your knowledge and consent are required for the collection, use, or disclosure of your Personally Identifying Information. No information is collected without your express consent.
Assess Central only collects the information that it needs in order to deliver products, services and information to you.
Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention:
Your Personally Identifying Information is kept as accurately and completely as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used. You have the right to update, modify, amend or correct errors in your Personally Identifying Information by contacting Assess Central.
You should also do your part in protecting your information. Your user name and password are confidential and we recommend that you not divulge them to anyone. Unfortunately, neither Assess Central’s network nor data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect Registrant's information, Assess Central cannot ensure or warrant the security of member information. Thus, any information a Registrant transmits to us is done so at the Registrant's own risk. Once we receive Registrant information, we undertake substantial efforts to protect the confidentiality of this information consistent with this Policy.
Assess Central will make its complete policies and practices relating to the management of your Personally Identifying Information readily available to you.
Upon request in writing, either by email or letter, you will be informed of the existence, use or disclosure of your Personally Identifying Information and you will be given access to that information. Assess Central will assist any customer who informs us that they need assistance in preparing a request concerning Personally Identifying Information. You may also challenge, in writing either by email or letter, the accuracy and completeness of the information and have it amended as appropriate, or request that Assess Central delete or correct any Personally Identifying Information contained in your file.
On occasion, Assess Centrals’ websites are connected by “hyperlinks” to other companies’ websites. Please note that Assess Central is not responsible in any way for the privacy practices of other websites and suggests that you review the privacy policies of those other companies’ websites before using them.
