Summit Partnership LLC (“Summit”) is committed to protecting customers’ privacy on all the websites it operates (the “Websites”). We pledge that as we gather and use information about you, we will do so responsibly. All of our employees are required to safeguard the privacy of information about our customers. This same expectation is made of our partners, contractors and suppliers. By your access and use of the Websites, you are agreeing to allow the information collection and use of information as described in this privacy statement.
Summit sets high standards for the protection of its customers’ privacy over the internet. Upon request, Summit will share with the customer what information it gathers about them, how that information is collected, who uses it, how it is used, how long it is retained and the options available to control the use of collected information.
The information collected from users of the Websites is used to ensure quality customer service or to comply with state and federal regulations. For example, when an on-line employment application is submitted, that information must be retained to ensure fair hiring practices according to state and federal laws. That information would not be used to generate marketing lists, or shared with persons outside of those directly involved in Human Resource efforts at Summit. On other occasions, a user may submit information such as general inquiries, on-line ordering, inquiries for product and service information, establishing a profile for receiving coupons & advertisements, and for contests entry. We may use this information for our own customer contact purposes, e.g., to contact or send materials for marketing purposes, or to inform customers of upcoming events and new products. However, we will take commercially reasonable steps to safeguard the information from unauthorized access, and will not make individually identifiable information that is gathered on our sites available to unaffiliated organizations for commercial purposes unrelated to the business of Summit.
There may be instances where Summit generates general statistics about the information provided by the Websites’ users. This analysis is not specific to any one user and is used for evaluation of the effectiveness of the site. These statistics may be used to understand volumes of usage and to improve areas within the Websites for all our visitors.
Summit, or agents on Summit’s behalf, will use e-mail to respond to specific questions or issues, or to inform about events or new products. Summit will not send commercial solicitation via e-mail to individuals who log on to its Websites who request it not be sent. If Summit should change this policy, this statement will be updated to reflect that change.
Users may be able to link to non-Summit sites from the Websites. Summit is not responsible for the content or privacy practices employed by other sites. Summit reserves the right to increase its information collection capabilities in order to better serve our customer needs. This privacy statement will be updated in the event that Summit changes its practices regarding customer information collected via the Websites.
