Like most web sites, we use automatic data collection technology when you visit the Site to record information that identifies your computer, to track your use of the Site and/or the Services, and to collect certain basic information about you and your surfing habits. This Usage Data includes information about your operating system, your IP addresses, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, keywords, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, what sections of a website you visit, and similar information concerning your use of the Site and the Services. We may collect this Usage Data by using cookies and pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear gifs). Cookies are small packets of data that a web site stores on your computer’s hard drive so that your computer will “remember” information about your visit. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web site users. You can reject cookies by following the directions provided in your Internet provider’s “help” file.  If you reject cookies, you may still visit the Site, but may not be able to use some areas of the Site and/or the Services. We do not collect Personal Information in this way, but if you’ve provided us with Personal Information we may associate that information with the information that is collected automatically. Our Providers may perform automatic data collection on our behalf.

We may use web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile Usage Data, as well as interaction with emails from us.  Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular website tied to the web beacon, and a description of a website tied to the web beacon. For example, we may place web beacons in marketing emails that notify us when you click on a link in the email that directs you to the Site.

When you visit the Site, we collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address to track and aggregate non-personal information. For example, we use IP addresses to monitor the regions from which visitors navigate the Site.  We also collect IP addresses from users when they log into the Services.

At present we do not have the ability to act on a “do not track” setting in Internet browsers.  Therefore, even if you have set your browser not to track by using a “do not track” feature or setting, we may still use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect and store your Information.


Collectrium may process your Personal Information in the United States (US) or other countries outside of the EEA. Each of these countries has differing privacy laws offering different levels of protection for your Personal Information. Our Privacy Policy reflects these varying practices and we will act in accordance with this Privacy Policy in all jurisdictions we operate in. By providing your personal information to us, you consent to us processing your Personal Information in any jurisdiction, in accordance with this Policy.


We will take all reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the security and integrity of all Personal Information provided to our website, or by any other means electronic or otherwise.

We will ensure that your Personal Information is reasonably protected against both unauthorized physical and electronic access. These measures include an electronic firewall and various other protection measures that involve virus scanning, installation of security patches, vulnerability testing, backup and recovery planning, employee training, security audits and other steps designed constantly to improve the data protection posture. However, we cannot guarantee that information during transmission through the internet or any computer network is entirely safe from unauthorized intrusion, access or manipulation. We will have no liability for disclosure of information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties. In any event, where we believe Personal Information has been compromised, we will notify you.


Upon request, we will grant you reasonable access to Personal Information that we have about you for the purpose of reviewing and/or modification. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to process such requests in a timely manner. Please contact
