    Privacy Policy Effective Date

    This Privacy Policy is effective as of May 25, 2018. 

    Security and Privacy 

    Structured’s website and social media platforms (e.g. Twitter and LinkedIn) use reasonable commercial methods and security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the data under our control. We store the data collected in a database in a secure environment protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When personal data is transmitted, it is protected with encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

    Data Collected

    Structured collects data to operate effectively and to improve its website, social media participation, professional services, and product resale transactions. When you visit Structured’s websites, our system uses cookies to collect statistical data about your visit (e.g. IP address, pages visited, origin of visitor domains, types of browsers used, and geographic information).

    This data provides Structured with general statistics pertaining to the efficacy and public interest for specific pages within our websites. We use this information to gauge visitor traffic to areas of our sites and determine how we might improve user experience.

    Structured’s cookies do not collect private, personally identifiable information such as your name or email address.  That information is collected only when you complete and submit a form on our website or voluntarily comment on a social media post. Aside from web forms and social media platforms, Structured collects personal information from you when you send us an email, register for an event or training class, work with us via a professional service interaction, and through product resale transactions.

    How Structured Uses Personal Data

    Structured enforces a strict internal policy regarding data protection requirements. Personal data submitted to Structured is used for specific purposes by employees managing this information. These purposes include contacting you (via email, phone, etc.) in an effort to respond to a request or to provide a service or product, and to notify you of Structured-sponsored events and other Structured-related activities. Structured may also contact you with surveys or email messages in order to conduct research about your opinion of current services or to inform you of new services that may be offered.

    Reasons Structured Shares Personal Data

    Structured shares your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete any transaction you have requested or authorized. Structured also shares data with vendors working on your behalf; when required by law to respond to legal process; to protect our customers; to maintain the security of our services; and to protect the rights or property of Structured.

    How to Control Your Personal Data and Opt-Out

    You can always choose whether to receive promotional email, SMS messages, telephone calls and postal mail from Structured.  You can opt-out from receiving interest-based advertising from Structured by emailing Structured’s marketing department at marketing@structured.com.  You can also opt-out from marketing, interest-based advertising, and promotional email communications by clicking on the opt-out (unsubscribe) link in any message you receive from us. This will allow you to unsubscribe or update your message preferences.

    Social Media

    If you leave a comment on a Structured social media post, you should be aware that any personal data or personally identifiable information you submit can be read, collected, or otherwise used by anyone who visits the URL for the post upon which you commented.

    Public Forums

    Structured may offer chat rooms, message boards, bulletin boards, blogs or similar public forums where you and other users of our website can communicate. The protections described in this Privacy Policy do not apply when you provide information (including personally identifiable information) in connection with your use of these public forums. We may use personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information about you to identify you with a posting in a public forum.  Any information you share in a public forum is public information and may be seen or collected by anyone, including third parties that do not adhere to our Privacy Policy. Accordingly, you should have no expectation of privacy for any information you post on public areas of the Website; if this is a concern, you should not participate in posting information to public areas of the website. We are not responsible for events arising from the distribution of any information you choose to publicly post or share through the website.

    Testimonials 

    On occasion, we post customer testimonials on our website. These testimonials may contain personal data, such as a person’s name, his or her job title, and the name of the company at which he or she works. We always obtain an individual’s prior consent to publish these testimonials and will promptly remove them if the individual requests it.

    Cookies and Similar Technologies

    Client-side cookies (small text files placed on your device) verify login status linked directly with website use. A primary purpose for cookies is to provide users with convenience – for example, telling a web server that you have returned to a specific page. If you personalize pages, or register for something online, a cookie helps vendors like Structured recall your specific information on subsequent visits. The information you previously provided is retrieved, enabling easy use of the customized features. There are a variety of tools to control cookies and similar technologies, including browser controls to block and delete cookies, and controls from some third-party analytics service providers to opt out of data collection through web beacons and similar technologies.  If a user rejects the cookie, he or she may still use our sites; however, the user may be unable to access all areas of our sites.

    Third Party Websites

    Structured’s website and social media platforms may contain links to other third party websites.  You acknowledge that Structured has not reviewed these third party websites, has no control over such third party websites or the content thereof, and is not responsible for any of these sites or their content.  Accordingly, you acknowledge and agree that access to any third party websites is at your own risk and Structured shall have no liability therefor. Structured is not responsible for the accuracy, reliability or completeness of any information, data, opinions, advice or statements made on these third party websites.  Structured shall be liable for any damages or injury arising out of or relating to the content of any third party websites or your use thereof, and same are hereby waived.  Structured provides these links merely as a convenience and the inclusion of such links does not imply an endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation by Structured of anything contained on third party websites, or its products or services.  Structured reserves the right to terminate any link at any time.

    Each third party website has a separate privacy and data collection practices independent of this Structured’s Privacy Policy.  Accordingly, please carefully review the data collection policies on each third party website that you visit.
