By using the Site you expressly consent to our collection, use, disclosure, and retention of your personal information as described in this Policy.

We may change these Terms and Policy from time to time. If so, any such changes will be posted on this page. We recommend that you review these Terms and Policy on a regular basis.

Intellectual Property
The Site itself is protected by Arthur Schuman as a collective work and/or compilation, pursuant to United States copyright laws, international conventions, and other copyright laws. You acknowledge and agree that all content and material on this Site, including without limitation, text and images, is protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents, trade secrets or other intellectual property rights owned or licensed by Arthur Schuman. Except as expressly authorized by Arthur Schuman, you agree not to sell, license, rent, modify, distribute, copy, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, adapt, edit or create derivative works from such material or content.

Privacy: Information we collect and how it is used
When you browse or use our Site, the personal information you provide us will be used in various ways. We will collect personal information only when you contact or communicate with us through the Site or any social media sites and channels used by Arthur Schuman, including our Facebook®, LinkedIn®, Instagram® and YouTube® channels. When we use the term “personal information” we mean information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person, such as your name, mailing address, email address or phone number. Personal information does not include information that has been made anonymous so that it does not identify a specific user.

Privacy: How we use information
The main reason we retain and use your personal information is to keep a record of your communication with us and provide you with content regarding our products and services. This includes, for example, operating the Site and responding to inquiries received through the Site. In doing so, we may combine information we receive through inquiries on the Site with our other records relating to customers and potential customers. We do not provide personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes. We may use your personal information to respond to your inquiries and thereafter send you information about our products and services. If you do not wish to receive marketing communications from us, you may opt-out at any time by contacting us.

Privacy: Uses of collective data
We use anonymous collective data that is not associated with any specific individuals, such as numbers and groupings of demographic data and customer preferences. We may use this collective data for new product development and test marketing. We also use collective data, such as number of visitors, time visited, pages visited, images or key word searches to optimize our Site.

Privacy: Disclosing information
We will disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements or requests, enforce our policies, and protect the rights, property and safety of our company and others. Such information will be disclosed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. We may provide personal information to our service providers under contract who help with our business operations on as-needed basis. We will disclose information to law enforcement, governmental agencies, or authorized third-parties, in response to a verified request relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other users of our Site to legal liability. In such events, we will disclose information that we believe to be relevant and necessary to the investigation or inquiry. Additionally, we may disclose personal information in situations that we believe to be emergencies involving potential threats to the physical safety or any person or property if we believe that the information in any way relates to that threat.

In the event we are engaged in or contemplating a merger or other corporate acquisition with another business entity, personal information may be disclosed to and would likely be acquired by the other business entity, which may then amend these Terms and Policy in that entity’s discretion.

Privacy: Cookies
We do not use any “cookies” on the Site (“cookies” are small data files that many other sites place within your computing devices). Privacy: Accessing, reviewing and updating information You can always contact us and ask us to review the personal information, if any, we have collected regarding you through the Site. You can also request that we correct or update that information, which we reserve the right to do in our sole discretion.

Privacy: Security
We store and process personal information on servers and computers we control in the U.S. We use reasonable technical and administrative security measures to reduce the risks of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure and alteration. Some of the safeguards we use are firewalls and data encryption, physical access controls to data centers, and information access authorization controls.

We retain information as long as it is reasonably necessary and relevant for our operations. In addition, we may retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with the law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigation, and enforce our Terms and Policy or other agreements.

While we have implemented reasonable security measures to safeguard personal information using reasonable industry standards, please keep in mind that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. Because no security system is impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of your data on our servers. In addition, because Internet communication is unsecure, we cannot warrant the security of your information or guarantee that the information you transmit to our Site may not be intercepted, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

Third Party Sites
The Site may provide links to other websites whose privacy practices may differ from that of Arthur Schuman. If you submit personal information to any of these third party sites, your information is governed by the privacy polices of those sites and no longer governed by this Terms and Policy. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any websites you visit. The Site includes links to various social media pages via the “share” functions on our Site. Social media features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on the Site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policies of the respective companies providing those sites.

Indemnity

Arthur Schuman reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you and, in such case, you agree to cooperate with Arthur Schuman’s defense of such claim.
