What Information Does Scellus Collect?
You can visit Scellus’s web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself. However, if you request customer service or request to have a member of our sales department contact you, we may ask for your name, email address, phone number and company name in order to provide the appropriate service. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. Generally, once you have purchased a Scellus product or service, Personal Information is not required to access the Internet via such Scellus product or service.
We may set cookies in your browser or use your Internet Protocol (IP) address as a unique identifier to track your interests and gather usage information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to Personal Information. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file.
We set a persistent cookie to store your passwords, so you don’t have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
Cookies are used by our suppliers and third party vendors to enable the targeting and customization of content. We do not have access or control over these cookies. Depending on the device being used, cookies may be stored locally on your device, or on servers operated by Scellus. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site may be limited.
These third party suppliers and vendors also employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.
Targeted Content and Advertising
Scellus uses this tracking information for the following purposes: to customize the advertising and content you see, improve our services, conduct research, and provide anonymous aggregate reporting for internal and external clients. This targeting process is based on anonymous surfing behavior and will not include your Personal Information. If you would like to opt out, click here.
In order to better target our advertising and to provide pertinent offers in which we think you would be interested, we may on occasion supplement the personal information you submitted to us with information from third party sources. To enrich our Profiles of individual customers, we tie this information to the personally identifiable information they have provided to us.
