Privacy statement


Visitors to the evitherm site are asked to register their name and email address if they wish to use the forum, access information from the evitherm database, post information of any sort to the site or to buy access to thermal property data or other services.

The information you give us on registration is kept on a secure server and is only used to confirm your identity when you log on and to contact you by email, infrequently, when there is new important information available on the website. Your information will be kept private and not passed on to any third party without explicit permission.
 
The newly registered evitherm user will have a user profile accessible from the User area. This profile information will be kept strictly private to evitherm and used only to select and direct information of particular relevance to the user if the user specifically agrees to it.

Besides any personal information, we also collect information relating to the way that people use the site, such as what pages are visited, what information is searched for, and information such as the IP address or browser type. However, these data are not associated with any personal information. Instead, we use this anonymous data to operate our site and to gather statistics for improvement of the site, for example by identifying which parts are well visited.
 
We keep personal information concerning you on a secure server. It is protected by a firewall and other electronic security from unauthorised access through the internet or our network. It is also physically secured against intruders.
 
We provide links that take you to other websites. We encourage you to review privacy and other policies at third party sites you visit, since those sites are not bound to follow our policies.
 
The evitherm Society may in future alter or add to this Privacy statement, especially as we add new services. Accordingly, please check the website privacy statement occasionally to see if there has been a change.

From time to time, the evitherm Society invites users of the website to reply to online questionnaires concerning particular aspects of the website. In general, no personal information is solicited in such surveys, other than on a voluntary basis. Any information collected this way is kept private to the evitherm Society and used anonymously to create trend analyses. These analyses may be displayed for users' interest.

 

Other than personally identifiable information, which is covered under this evitherm Society Privacy Statement, any material, information or other communication you transmit or post to this site will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. The evitherm Society will have no obligations with respect to such information. The evitherm Society and its designees will be free to copy, disclose, distribute, incorporate and otherwise use such information and all data, images, sounds, text, and other things embodied therein for any and all commercial or non-commercial purposes. You are prohibited from posting or transmitting to or from this site any unlawful, threatening, libellous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, or other material that would violate any law.


Any queries relating to this privacy statement should be addressed to editor@evitherm.org.
