PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND USE AT THIS WEB SITE
We do not collect any personal information about you at our web site unless you choose to provide it to us voluntarily. We define “personal information” as information that is unique to you and might include your phone number, name, age, address or Social Security number. If you encounter a screen or page that requests information you do not want to share with us, do not enter the information and do not proceed with that screen or page.
If you do provide us with personal information, we will only use it for the purposes described where it is collected, and we will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of Welkin LLC unless (1) you expressly authorize us to do so, (2) it is necessary to allow our contractors or agents to provide services for us, (3) in order to provide our products or services to you, (4) it is disclosed to entities that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other entities with whom we have joint marketing agreements, or (5) otherwise as we are required or permitted by law (including, in connection with a merger, consolidation, acquisition, divestiture or other corporate restructuring).
CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY
We restrict access to personal information collected about you at our web site to our employees, our affiliates’ employees, or others who need to know that information to provide services to you or in the course of conducting our normal business operations. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect personal information. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number and/or social security number) on our web site, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) or similar technology. However, please be advised the electronic communications, including the Internet, are not completely secure, and we cannot guarantee the security of your information.
THE RIGHT TO VERIFY THE ACCURACY OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Keeping information accurate and up to date is important to us. An individual may see and correct their personal information that we collect except for information relating to a claim or a criminal or civil proceeding.

USE OF “COOKIES” AND OTHER DATA COLLECTION TOOLS
A cookie is a piece of information which a web server may place on your computer when you visit a web site. Cookies are commonly used by web sites to improve the user experience and have not been known to transmit computer viruses or otherwise harm your computer. Many cookies last only through a single web site session, or visit. Others may have an expiration date, or may remain on your computer until you delete them.
Our cookies will track only your activity relating to your online activity on this web site, and will not track your other Internet activity. Our cookies do not gather personally identifiable information.
You can decide if and how your computer will accept a cookie by configuring your preferences or options in your browser. However, if you choose to reject cookies, you may not be able to use certain of our online products and services or web site features.
We may occasionally use other companies to set cookies on our web sites and gather cookie information for us. In some cases we may also use another company to operate web servers for our web site. We use the cookie information gathered by these companies in the same manner as stated above.
In addition to cookies, we may also use other means of passively collecting non-personally identifiable data about your use of our site, such as through the use of “clear GIFs” (small pieces of data that may be embedded in images on our web sites that enable us to track your usage of our web sites) and analyzing “click stream” data (the virtual trail you leave behind while browsing the Internet and viewing our web sites). We only use Clear GIFs and click stream data to gather anonymous data about your visit to our web sites. Blocking cookies will prevent Clear GIFs from tracking your activity, and also prevent us from collecting certain other anonymous unique information such as your IP address, but the Clear GIF will still account for an anonymous visit.
In addition to the information we collect from cookies, Clear GIFs, through the analysis of click stream data and any other means we may employ to collect non-personally identifiable information about you or your visit to our web sites, we may also obtain anonymous information which you provide to us online – for example, when you use our tools and calculators.
We reserve the right to use and share aggregate and anonymous data (including data aggregated from your and other users of our web sites, tools and calculators) for any purpose and with any third parties, unless prohibited by law.
