1. What Information This Site Collects/Tracks
eVS designs, manufactures, and distributes small form factor CPU, devices and I/O modules for use in embedded machine-vision factory automation and embedded designs. We invite partners and customers to create their own unique records and profiles. In order to complete a personal record, certain personal information must be provided. None of the information we gather can be used by the public (visitors, other members, or anyone not employed by eVS or the financial institutions used to process charges for purchases) to identify specific individuals. We collect credit card, address, or bank information only from those who choose to purchase products or services via the website. All visitors to our site may browse the site and view information, articles, or features our site has to offer without entering any personal information.
eVS collects and tracks two types of information: information that subscribing users enter and information not directly submitted by subscribing users.
Information Directly Submitted by Users to Evsys.net
The Web site collects two types of user-submitted information: public and private. Public information is any information that may, with appropriate permissions, be displayed to others who come to the site to review it. Private information is defined as any information that the user permanently or temporarily stores securely in a record or profile at the site.
Information may include: specified username, and information about interests and skills. Much of this information is optional. All information is designed to be seen only by visitors to the site who have been given access permission.
This information is gathered from partners, customers, and guests who register. This information includes, but is not limited to: email address, first name, last name, credit card information for payment, a user-specified password, mailing address, zip code and telephone number.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary. The user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).
eVS Partner Program
The Partner Program is a vehicle for other sites to link to the eVS site. No personal member information is exchanged with a Partner.
Information Not Directly Submitted by Users to evsys.net
This is information we collect that is not personally identifiable, such as browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all users to the site.
2. How This Site Uses the Information It Collects/Tracks
Information Directly Submitted by Users to eVS Srl.
Public information supplied by the user is intended to be viewed by visitors to the site who have access permission from the subscriber user. Public information cannot be used to identify a specific member by name, address, etc., unless the user sets permissions at the appropriate level.
We primarily use Email addresses submitted by members to verify registration. We may also use a user's email address to send news regarding our site, but the user may choose not to receive email of this type by contacting us. Email addresses may also be used in private correspondence with the user for customer service issues. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for products and services. All other private information submitted by the user is confidential and will not be disclosed except as required by law or to protect members of eVS Srl. All private information can be updated or deleted by the user at any time.
Surveys & Contests
Contact and other information collected for contests will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information collected will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
Information submitted by a Partner is used for establishing and maintaining a business relationship. No personal or business information is shared outside the relationship between eVS Srl and the Partner. Partners may not view or access private information about individuals who have registered at the eVS site.
Information Not Directly Submitted by Users to evsys.net
We use your server, IP address, and browser-type related information in the general administration of our website.
3. With Whom This Site Shares the Information It Collects/Tracks
Except where you are expressly informed otherwise or as described immediately below, we do not sell, rent, share, trade or give away any of your personal information except to the financial institution that processes your credit card or check transaction unless required by law or for the protection of your membership.
4. How This Policy Applies to Links In the Site
This site contains links to other web sites. Please be aware that eVS is not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this site.
6. Site Policy on Correcting, Updating or Removing Personal Information
eVS Srl gives users several options for modifying or removing their information from our database. Please visit your My eVS page or contact us for more info.
8. Security of Your Personal Information
eVS Srl takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, information is protected both online and off-line.
evsys.net utilizes some of the most advanced technology for Internet security available today. When you access our site using Netscape Navigator 4.5 or Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 6.0 or higher, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology protects your information using both server authentication and data encryption, ensuring that your data is safe, secure, and available only to you as a registered user. Your data is inaccessible to others. When our registration/order process asks users to enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the SSL encryption software.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example a billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
eVS provides each user with a unique user name and password that must be entered each time a user logs on. evsys.net issues a session "cookie" only to record encrypted authentication information for the duration of a specific session. The session "cookie" does not include either the username or password of the user. evsys.net does not use "cookies" to store other confidential user and session information, but instead implements more advanced security methods based on dynamic data and encoded session IDs.
In addition, evsys.net is hosted in a secure server environment that uses a firewall and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, please contact us.
9. Email Choice/Opt-Out Policy
Our users are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information.
Users who no longer wish to receive information or promotional materials from eVS or our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by following the instructions contained in the email or by logging-in and changing their email options in the My eVS section of the site.
