Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it.

If you are under 16, do not use or provide any information on this Website or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, or any screen name or user name you may use.

Information We Collect About You and How We Collect It

We collect several types of information from and about users of our Website, including information by which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, email address, telephone number and any other identifier that you choose to provide to us (“personal information“)

We collect this information directly from you when you provide it to us.

Information You Provide to Us 

The information we collect on or through our Website may includes records and copies of your correspondence (including name, postal address, email addresses, telephone number, or any other information you choose to provide), if you contact us.

Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technologies 

Many websites use cookies, pixels, and other automatic data collection technologies. A cookie is a piece of data contained in a very small text file that is stored in your browser or elsewhere on your hard drive. A pixel is a tiny image that is loaded when you visit our Websites or open our marketing emails, but instead of calling up an image, it causes a cookie or application to be downloaded. Like cookies, pixels can be used to track user activities, track the number of times a user has viewed a particular link or advertisement, track and optimize website traffic, display advertisements, keep track of advertising commissions, and otherwise collect data for online marketing and website analysis.

We do not collect personal information through the use of automatic data collection technologies.

How We Use Your Information

We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information:

  • To present our Website and its contents to you.

  • To fulfill any other purpose for which you provide it.
  • To carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, including for billing and collection.
  • To notify you about changes to our Website or any products or services we offer or provide though it.
  • In any other way we may describe when you provide the information.
  • For any other purpose with your consent.

We may also use your information to contact you about services that may be of interest to you. If you do not want us to use your information in this way, please follow the opt-out instructions described in the section titled “Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information.”

We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.

We may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide as described in this privacy policy:

  • To contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our business.
  • To a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of Sawyer|Berson’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by Sawyer|Berson about our Website users is among the assets transferred.
  • To fulfill the purpose for which you provide it.
  • For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.
  • With your consent.

We may also disclose your personal information:

Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information

We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:

  • Promotional Offers from the Company. If you do not wish to have your email address used by the Company to promote our services, you can opt-out at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email or by sending us an email stating your request to info@sawyerberson.com. This opt out does not apply to non-promotional communications, such as emails about services we are providing to you or other transactions.

We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. You can opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI“) on the NAI’s website.

Accessing and Correcting Your Information

You can review and change your personal information by sending us an email at info@sawyerberson.com to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

Your State Privacy Rights

California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our App that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to info@sawyerberson.com.

Nevada provides its residents with a limited right to opt-out of certain personal information sales. Residents who wish to exercise this sale opt-out rights may submit a request by email to info@sawyerberson.com. However, please know we do not currently sell data triggering that statute’s opt-out requirements.

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of personal information, including when you send us an email, is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.

Data Retention

We will only keep your information, including any personal information, for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it, to comply with our legal obligations, or to enforce our legal rights (or as required so others may enforce their legal rights).

Generally, the length of time we keep your information will depend on the type of information and the purpose for which we are processing it. To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure, the purposes for which we are processing it and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and any applicable legal requirements.

At the end of the appropriate retention period, we will either delete your information from our systems completely or deidentify or anonymize it so it can be used without identifying you and so we no longer have the ability to re-associate the deidentified or anonymized information with you in the future, such as by aggregating the information.
