We also employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to compile aggregate statistics on how our site is used. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.

Tracen has implemented physical and technical safeguards to protect personal data from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Tracen has implemented secure authentication protocols. Among other measures, Tracen encrypts data using SSL (such as location data and when log-in credentials are entered) and has implemented strong password protection. Tracen maintains up-to-date firewall and malware protection and operates system security patches. Data owned by each customer is logically isolated from the data of other customers and from Tracen’s corporate environment to prevent unauthorized access. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Once a customer relationship ends, Tracen will remove all customer data from Tracen’s network storage facilities and all media used to store such customer data will be cleaned using industry best practices or destroyed. When a staff person leaves, Tracen immediately blocks the employee’s physical and electronic access to the network and the facilities upon termination. Among other measures, Tracen will deactivate passwords and user names and collect building entry keys.
- Data Breaches
Notwithstanding any other legal obligations Tracen may have, Tracen will promptly notify Customers in writing upon Tracen’s discovery of a breach of security of its systems or site where any data or materials containing personally identifiable information, including but not limited to Users’ IDs or passwords, have been acquired by an unauthorized person or Tracen reasonably believes that such a breach of security may have occurred. Tracen will also provide immediate feedback about any impact this possible or actual breach may/or will have on its Customers. Tracen will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly notify its Customers of the possible or actual security breach upon detecting the possible or actual breach.
