Sperry Data Management System Privacy Statement:
Sperry Data Management System ("SDMS") has created
this privacy statement ("Statement") in order to demonstrate our
commitment to customer privacy. Privacy on the SDMS web site (the
"Site") is of great importance to us. Because we gather important
information from our customers, we have established this Statement as a means
to communicate our information gathering and dissemination practices. We
reserve the right to change this Statement and will provide notification of the
change at least thirty (30) business days prior to the change taking effect,
and will include directions on how users may respond to the change.
We require customers who register to use the services offered on our Site (collectively,
the "Service") to give us contact information, such as their name,
company name, address, phone number, and e-mail address, and the number of
users within the organization that will be using the Service. At the time you
express interest in attaining additional information, or when you register for
the Service, we may also ask for additional personal information, such as
title, department name, fax number, or additional company information.
Customers can opt out of providing this additional information by not entering
it when asked. Customers can update or remove certain non-essential information
at any time by logging into the Website and editing their Personal Information
within Setup. Customers can view their updated profile to confirm their edits
have been made.
SDMS uses the information that we collect to set up the Service for individuals and their
organizations. We may also use the information to contact customers to further
discuss customer interest in our company, the Service that we provide, and to
send information regarding our company or partners, such as promotions and
events. Customers may be invited to receive an email newsletter by providing an
email address. Customer email addresses and any personal customer information
will not be distributed or shared with third parties. Customers can opt out of
being contacted by us, or receiving such information from us, at any time by
sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Separately, customers are also
asked to provide an email address when registering for the Service, in order to
receive a username and password. We may also email information regarding
updates to the Service or company, and may send a Customer Newsletter. Again,
email will not be distributed or shared and customers can opt out of receiving
any communication by emailing email@example.com at the time it is
distributed, or at the time any customer registers for the Service.
Except as we explicitly state at the time we request information, or as provided for in the
SDMS Master Subscription Agreement, we do not disclose to third parties the
information provided. Other third parties, such as content providers, may
provide content on the web Site but they are not permitted to collect any
information nor does SDMS share user information with these parties.
Customers of the Service will be using the Site to view data and information ("Data").
SDMS will not review, share, distribute, print, or reference any such Data
except as provided in the SDMS Master Subscription Agreement, or as may be
required by law. Individual records may at times be viewed or accessed only for
the purpose of resolving a problem, support issue, or suspected violation of
the Master Subscription Agreement, or as may be required by law. Of course,
customers are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of
their user registration and password.
SDMS may also collect certain information from visitors to and customers of the Site, such as
Internet addresses. This information is logged to help diagnose technical
problems, and to administer our Site in order to constantly improve the quality
of the Service. We may also track and analyze non-identifying and aggregate
usage and volume statistical information from our visitors and customers and
provide such information to third parties.
When you interact with the SDMS Website we strive to make that experience easy and meaningful.
When you come to our Web site, our Web server sends a cookie to your computer.
Cookies are files that Web browsers place on a computer's hard drive and are
used to tell us whether customers and visitors have visited the Site
Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser.
Unless you choose to identify yourself to SDMS by logging into your account,
you remain anonymous to SDMS. Cookies come in two flavors: session and
persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They
disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off
your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you've closed
your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a
unique identifier for your browser.
SDMS uses session cookies containing encrypted information to allow the system to uniquely
identify you while you are logged in. This information allows SDMS to process
your online transactions and requests. Session cookies help us make sure you
are who you say you are after you've logged in and are required in order to use
the SDMS application. SDMS uses persistent cookies that only SDMS can read and
use, to identify the fact that you are a SDMS customer or prior SDMS Website
visitor (whatever the case may be). We are especially careful about the
security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies.
For example, we do not store account numbers or passwords in persistent
cookies. Users who disable their Web browsers' ability to accept cookies will
be able to browse our Website but will not be able to successfully use our

Such cookies will not be used to associate individual website visitors to any
personally identifiable information. All data collected by such third parties on
behalf of SDMS is used only to provide us with information on site usage and is

Our Site has security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, and
alteration of the Data under our control. When our Site is accessed using
Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 5.5 or higher, Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
technology protects information using both server authentication and data
encryption to help ensure that Data is safe, secure, and available only to you.
SDMS also implements an advanced security
method based on dynamic data and encoded session identifications
and hosts the Site in a secure server environment that uses a firewall and
other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside
intruders. Finally, SDMS provides unique user names and passwords that must be
entered each time a customer logs on. These safeguards help prevent
unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of
