|In general, you can visit cuesta.com without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We track the Internet address of the domains from which people visit us, and the pages that people visit on our site, and we analyze this data for trends and statistics. However, the individual visitor remains anonymous.
ABOUT COOKIES Some school and district personnel are concerned about a growing and perhaps confusing practice among Web sites to utilize "cookies" to attempt to identify and track visitors to those sites. A cookie is a small data file placed on your hard drive by a Web server while you're visiting a particular Web site. This file contains specific user information, which can then be later read by the Web server when you move from page to page in the site and/or revisit the site.
Cookies can be used by the Web server to personalize the pages you visit, or they can be used as tracking devices to help advertisers and Web sites build profiles about you based on the data they collect from your site visits.
You can set your browser to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it, and you can also set your browser to refuse all cookies.
|To protect your privacy, we have adopted the following principles:
CHOICE There are times when we may collect personal information from you. It is our intent to inform you before we do that and to tell you what we intend to do with the information. You will have the option not to provide the information, and you will be able to "opt out" of certain uses of the information. If you choose not to provide the information we request, you can still visit most of the Cuesta.com Web site, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services.
ACCURACY We use our best efforts to maintain the accuracy of personal information you supply to us.
SECURITY We will take appropriate steps to protect the information you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not retained for marketing purposes.
Whenever you provide sensitive information (for example, a credit card number to make a purchase), we will take appropriate steps to protect it. If you are using a browser that supports SSL encryption, such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer, your personal information (including your credit card number) is automatically encrypted during transmission.
We will also take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in storage. We do not store sensitive personal information such as credit card numbers on our Web servers. As soon as your browser sends your information to our Web server it is transmitted via encryption to our order processing system and then taken off of the Internet. This system makes your personal information unavailable to would-be "hackers."
We will not provide any of your personal information to other companies or individuals without your permission. However, we may need to provide your name and delivery address to third parties that Cuesta uses for the purposes of delivering specific services to you (e.g., customer support, or a shipping company if you have asked us to send something to you.)
Thank you for your support of these policies and of Cuesta Technologies.
