Beluga Software is committed to maintaining a web site that protects the individual’s
right to privacy. We do not require personal information from our visitors, nor
do we collect any personally identifying information (name, email address, Social
Security number, or other unique identifier) unless you knowingly provide it. Likewise,
we do not give, sell, or transfer any personal information to a third party except
as might be required by law.
Data Collection for Statistics
To aid in web site management, certain information is collected for statistical
purposes. Beluga Software uses specialized software to create summary statistics,
which are used for such purposes as assessing what information is of most and least
interest to our customers, determining technical design specifications, and identifying
system performance or problem areas.
We collect only the following information about your visit:
- The name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, "princeton.edu"
if you are connecting from Princeton University’s domain, or "aol.com"
if you are connecting from an America Online account);
- The web site from which you linked directly to our web site, if you have used another
web site to reach our site;
- The operating system and web browser you use to view pages;
- The date and time you access our web site.
We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different
sections of our web site, allowing us to make our web site more useful and accessible
to visitors. We do not store any personal identifiers.
Information Collected from E-mails and Forms
You may decide to send us personally identifying information through e-mail messages
or through on-line forms. Electronic communication allows us to collect information
that will improve our web site for you, and we encourage it. We use personally-identifying
information from consumers in various ways to further our customer's protection
and to provide better service. This may be to correct broken links that you have
identified or provide additional information that you have requested.
For web site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available
to all users, we employ software programs to monitor network traffic, identify unauthorized
attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Unauthorized
attempts to upload or change information on this web site are strictly prohibited
and may be punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National
Information Infrastructure Protection Act.
