PRIVACY POLICY AS OF October 12th, 2011

1. GENERAL

This is the Privacy Policy of Tecnotree Corporation including its affiliated companies ("Tecnotree", also referred to as “we”, “us” or “our”) applicable to all websites, social media, mobile and similar applications, and email communications (“Tecnotree Online”) operated by Tecnotree. Some websites, web pages or services of Tecnotree may be subject to specific terms of use. In this case the Privacy Policy constitutes an integral part of such terms; however, should any contradictions occur, such terms shall prevail over this Privacy Policy. In the following by user (the “User”, also referred to as “you”, “your” or “yours”) is meant any individual user of Tecnotree Online and thereto related services of Tecnotree, and any legal entity represented by such User.

The User agrees to be bound by this Privacy Policy, as amended from time to time, by visiting and/or using the Tecnotree Online or by registering and disclosing personal information to Tecnotree in connection with Tecnotree Online services. Any use or disclosure may take place only if the User agrees to this Privacy Policy in its entirety.  You explicitly consent to the processing, transfer and use of data and use of cookies and web-beacons in ways described below.

Tecnotree respects the privacy of the User and commits itself to observe the applicable laws and statutes of Finland and the European Union relating to privacy as well as principles expressed in this Privacy Policy. Tecnotree is the controller of the personal data for the purposes of the Finnish Personal Data Act (Henkilötietolaki).

2. USE OF DATA

2.1 Personal data

In general the Tecnotree Online can be used without providing any personal data about the User. When the User opts to register at Tecnotree Online providing certain personal data such as name, company name, position in the company organization and e-mail address or other such data will be required.

Tecnotree will hold and process any personal data which the User provides via Tecnotree Onlines for its own internal business purposes.

Tecnotree may use personal data and other data for market research, providing newsletters and for queries and other contacts in relation to development and improvement of its products and services as well as for sales and marketing of its own products and services to the User. Tecnotree may also send proposals and offers based on the usage statistic of the User in a responsible manner. 

Tecnotree shall not pass on or sell personal data to third parties. Tecnotree may however share data within its organization. This may include Tecnotree's employees, agents, contractors and sub-contractors and the use of third party systems to process such data. Authorized third parties will process personal data solely for Tecnotree for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. We require such third parties to act consistently with this Privacy Policy and to use appropriate security measures to protect your personal data.

Tecnotree is a company operating globally. Therefore your personal data may be transferred across international borders and be located in servers outside the country where you have submitted your personal data, including to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) that do not have laws providing specific protection for personal data or that have different legal rules on data protection, for example, the United States of America. In such cases we take steps to ensure that there is a legal basis for such a transfer and that adequate protection for your personal data is provided as required by applicable law, for example, by using standard agreements approved by relevant authorities (where necessary) and by requiring the use of other appropriate technical and organizational information security measures.

We may be obligated by mandatory law to disclose your personal data to certain authorities or other third parties, for example, to law enforcement agencies in the countries where we or third parties acting on our behalf operate. We may also disclose and otherwise process your personal data in accordance with applicable law to defend Tecnotree’s legitimate interests, for example, in civil or criminal legal proceedings.

We may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or all, or substantially all, of our assets, personal data, non-personal information, and any other information we have collected about the users of Tecnotree Online may be transferred to such entity as one of the transferred assets. Also, if any insolvency or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information may be considered an asset of ours and as such may be sold or transferred to third parties.

2.2 Cookies and Web Beacons

Tecnotree employs cookies in order for its server to recognize a return visitor as a unique user. Cookies are small text files placed in the 'Cookies' folder on a User's hard disk and allow Tecnotree to remember the User. All web-browsers offer the option to refuse any cookie.  If User refuses the cookie, Tecnotree does not gather any information on that User, but doing so will require the User to re-enter certain information at each visit, or prevent us from customizing the site's features according to the User’s preferences. User may also delete a cookie manually from User’s hard drive. Cookies themselves do not contain any personal information. Tecnotree links the information stored in cookies to personal data the User submits while on Tecnotree site.

Some websites may also use “Web beacon” technologies. When the User accesses pages on the website with a Web beacon, an anonymous notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by Tecnotree or by authorized third parties. These Web beacons work in conjunction with cookies to let us know what portions of our site are of interest to our visitors and to help us provide you with tailored information from our website. If you turn off cookies, Web beacon technologies will still detect anonymous visits, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other anonymous information or personal data and are disregarded.

2.3 Aggregated Data

Tecnotree may use anonymized data obtained via the User's visits to our websites and/or directly disclosed there by the User in order to improve and develop the websites and services of Tecnotree and to produce aggregated information and other statistics.

3. SECURITY

We employ reasonable procedural and technological measures, consistent with standard industry practices that are designed to help protect Users personal data from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. For example, we store the personal data the User provides on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a username and/or password) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. Security professionals continually monitor and test the web interface touch-points and implement technology updates in an effort to thwart any attempts for unauthorized. However there are always risks associated with data transmissions over the internet, and for that reason Tecnotree cannot warrant the security of the data you transmit to us.

4. DATA QUALITY AND USER’S RIGHTS

We take reasonable steps to keep the personal data we possess accurate and to delete incorrect or unnecessary personal data. Where self-management of your user profile is offered, we encourage you to access your personal data from time to time to ensure that it is correct. Please remember that in case of any changes it is your responsibility to update the personal data you have provided us with.

You have a right to know what personal data we hold about you. You have a right to have incomplete, incorrect, unnecessary or outdated personal data deleted or updated. You have a right to request that we stop processing your personal data for direct marketing or market research purposes. You may opt-out totally from marketing and other communications or you may opt-out for a specific marketing campaign. However, if you opt-out from marketing and other communications, we may still send you critical alerts pertaining to our products and services or contact you for these purposes.

You may exercise your rights by contacting us through the contact points referred to below or by managing your user profile when offered. Please note that Tecnotree may need to identify you and to ask for additional information in order to be able to fulfill your request. Please also note that applicable law may contain restrictions and other provisions that relate to your rights.

5. LINKS TO THIRD PARTY SITES

Tecnotree Online may provide links to other websites or resources over which Tecnotree does not have control ("External Web Sites"). Such links do not constitute an endorsement, approval, or recommendation by Tecnotree of those External Web Sites.
