Personal and non-personal information
What is non-personal information and how is it collected and used?
Non-personal information refers to data that cannot be used to identify you. If you visit our website to access information about our services, for instance, we may collect specific non-personal information from your web browser. Since this kind of information cannot be linked to your identity, there are no limitations on how we can utilize or disclose it. On the other hand, personal information refers to data that does identify you as an individual, including your name, address, email, phone number, and fax number. We may collect personal information through various means.
- When submitting an application or any other form to us
- When engaging in a transaction with us, our affiliates, or other parties
- When gathering information from you to facilitate a transaction, such as credit card details, we strive to enhance the quality of our writing by optimizing word choice, sentence structure, readability, and eloquence, all while preserving the intended meaning.
- On certain sections of this website, you have the chance to provide us with personal information, choose to receive specific details, make a purchase for access to our products or services, or engage in an activity. We value your participation and aim to enhance your experience throughout.
Novarise is committed to complying with applicable data protection laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), where applicable.
Are cookies or other technologies used to collect personal information?
We utilize cookies and related technologies, like web beacons, to gather information from our website. A cookie, in the form of a text file, is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies do not have the ability to run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They are unique to each user and can only be read by the web server in the domain that issued the cookie. The main purpose of cookies is to enhance convenience and save you time. They enable the web server to recognize your return to a specific page. For instance, if you register with us, a cookie assists Novarise in remembering your information for future visits. This simplifies the process of capturing and recalling your personal details, such as billing and shipping addresses. By retrieving your previously provided information when you revisit our website, you can easily utilize customized features. On the other hand, a web beacon, a small graphic image, allows the issuer to monitor and collect specific details about the viewer, such as the browser type, IP address, and time of viewing. While web beacons can be barely noticeable, any electronic image, even HTML-based content, can function as a web beacon. We may employ them to track visitor counts and user navigation on our web pages, and utilize them in email messages to assess the open rate, recipient actions, or forwarded messages.
Third-party vendors may utilize cookies on our website. For example, we may engage with third parties to employ cookies on our platform, enabling the tracking and analysis of anonymous usage and volume statistics from visitors and members. This information is shared externally solely in an anonymous and aggregated format. These external parties utilize persistent cookies to enhance the visitor experience, manage our site content, and monitor visitor behavior. Additionally, we may contract with a third party to send emails to our registered users/members.
You have the option to accept or decline cookies. While most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, you can typically adjust your browser settings to decline them if you prefer. It’s important to note that by choosing to decline cookies, you may not have the full interactive experience when visiting Novarise websites.
