StartupCincy Privacy Policy

Last Revised: June 1, 2018

Cintrifuse (“Cintrifuse,” “the Company,” “our”, “us”, and “we”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your privacy through our compliance with this Privacy Policy (the “Policy”).  Cintrifuse owns this website, which is hosted and operated on Cintrifuse’ s behalf by Hotjar. Where applicable, this Policy should be read in conjunction with our website Terms and Conditions, into which this Policy is incorporated by reference.

This Policy describes:

  • The types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit the website https://startupcincy.com/ (the “Website”) as well as any websites and blogs directly owned by Cintrifuse (“our Websites”). 
  • Our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information in the practice of providing information about the Company and marketing efforts.

This Policy does not apply to websites or other domains that are maintained or operated by third parties or our affiliates. Our websites may link to third party websites and services, but these links are not endorsements of these sites and this Policy does not extend to them.  Because this Privacy Policy is not enforced on these third party websites, we encourage you to read any posted privacy policy of the third party website before using the service or site and providing any personal information.

Please read this Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it.  If you do not agree with our policies and practices, then please do not use our websites. By using our websites, you agree to the terms of this Policy.  This Policy may change from time to time (see below, “Changes to this Policy”). Your continued use of our websites after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Policy periodically for updates.

Information We Collect and How We Collect It
Our Website collects both Personal Information and other information as described in this Policy.  “Personal Information” is any information that can be used to individually identify you from a larger group, and may include details such as:

  • First and Last Name
  • Email address
  • Age
  • Telephone number
  • Mailing address

To ensure that we provide you with the best possible experience, Cintrifuse will store, use, and share information that we collect in accordance with this Policy.  For example, when you request information, subscribe to our newsletters, or send a message to us through the Website, we will ask you to provide Personal Information to complete these transactions.

Information You Provide to Us
The sort of information that you provide in each instance will vary and could include Personal Information.  In some cases, you will also provide additional information, such as whatever content you choose to include in a message to us through the Website.

Automatic Information Collection
In addition to the information you provide to us, we may also collect information about you during your visit to our Website.  We collect this information using automated tools that are detailed below. These tools may collect information about your behavior and your computer system.  Such information may include your Internet address (“IP Address”), your device’s screen resolution, device type (unique device identifiers), operating system, browser type, geographic location (country only), the Website pages you have viewed, the date and time of your visits, and the preferred language used to display the Hotjar Enabled Site.

One such method is cookies.  A “cookie” is a small data file transmitted from a website to your computer’s hard drive.  There are generally two kinds of cookies, and Cintrifuse may use both of them:

(1) session cookies, which do not stay on your computer after you close your browser;  and
(2) persistent cookies, which remain on your computer until you delete them or they expire.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies by default, but you can usually refuse cookies or selectively accept cookies by adjusting the preferences in your browser. Please be aware that a number of features on our websites may require cookies to operate correctly, turning off cookies may affect your experience on our website.

Cintrifuse may use cookies on our Websites to monitor your interaction with our marketing campaigns.  These cookies may be delivered by a trusted third party, but will provide us with information when you visit our Website.  One such trusted third party partner is Google Analytics. The Website sends aggregated, non-Personal Information to Google Analytics for the purpose of providing Cintrifuse with the ability to conduct technical and statistical analysis on the Website’s performance.  For more information on how Google Analytics supports the Website and uses information sent from the Website, please review Google’s privacy policy available at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

Do Not Track Disclosure
Other than as disclosed in this Policy, we do not track customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising, and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.  The information we collect automatically is statistical data and does not include Personal Information.

How We Use Your Information
The information we gather and you provide is collected and used to improve our service to you and your experience when engaging with our Websites and our services.  For example, we may use your information to:

  • Prevent malicious activity and provide you with a secure experience;
  • Provide marketing communications that are effective and optimized for you;
  • Keep you up-to-date with the latest news and events from Cintrifuse;
  • Avoid sending you something that will not be of interest;
  • Measure performance of marketing programs;
  • Learn about your behavior and try to improve what we do for your benefit;
  • Display testimonials, reviews, or recommendations on our websites with the express consent of the owner of that statement.
  • Contact you about services and offers that are relevant to you.

Although we use your name and email address to inform you about upcoming events and news related to Cintrifuse, you can always unsubscribe from receiving any marketing emails via the unsubscribe option in any such marketing you receive from us.

How We Share Your Information

Cintrifuse does not sell or lease your information to any third party. We may disclose your Personal Information to our partners in accordance with this Policy.  We do not share Personal Information outside of Cintrifuse, unless it is under one of the following circumstances:

  • Investigate and help prevent security threats, fraud, or other malicious activity;
  • Enforce/protect the rights and properties of Cintrifuse; or
  • Protect the rights or personal safety of Cintrifuse employees.

On occasion we may provide you with the ability to communicate with selected third parties. Where this is the case we will provide you with the facility to instruct us to share your information with the selected third party. We will only ever share your information in this way if you have told us that you are willing to allow us to do so.
