COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
We collect certain information through tracking technologies used on the Site such as cookies (data files placed on a device when it is used to visit the Site) and mobile analytics software. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time.
On our Site, we use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the Site by remembering your preferences and to improve and track the overall Site experience. Persistent cookies enable us to track, store, and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Site.
While most browsers are automatically set up to accept cookies, you can adjust your browser settings to reject cookies or to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent. Cookies are typically browser-specific. If you use different browsers, you will have to define your preferences on each browser. You can delete all or some of these cookies from your computer by activating the “delete cookies” feature in your browser. If you have several browsers, you must reiterate the deletion request for each browser. If you use different devices, you will need to configure each device to suit your cookie preferences. Note that if you remove or reject our cookies, you may not be able to use certain features on the website.
We use Remarketing with Google Analytics and Google Adwords to display relevant advertisements to users who have previously visited our Site. Aggregated user data may be utilized to create remarketing/retargeting “lists,” or groups of users with similar on-site behaviors or demographics.
We also use Google Display Network Impression Reporting and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting and Interest-Based Advertising to display advertisements to users based on their inferred interests and demographics.
Do Not Track Policy. Certain web browsers may provide an option by which you may request your browser to inform websites you visit that you do not wish your activities to be tracked by cookies or other persistent identifiers, commonly called “Do Not Track Signals.” Our website currently does not respond to Do Not Track Signals. If you block cookies, certain features on our website may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop.
LINKS TO THIRD-PARTY SITES
Our website may contain third-party links, including third-party integrations. Through these links and third-party integrations, you may be providing information (including personal information) directly to the third party, us, or both. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for how those third parties collect, share, or use your information. Because EQ Office has no control over the privacy practices or content of these linked sites, we recommend that you carefully review the privacy policies of every third-party service that you visit or see, including those third parties you interact with through our website. (Our website may also serve third-party content that contains their own cookies or tracking technologies. We do not control the use of those technologies.)
We employ reasonable technical and organizational security safeguards to help protect your personal information. However, the Internet is not 100% secure and there is always some risk in transmitting information over the Internet. Therefore, we cannot promise you that your use of our website will be completely safe. You should use secure methods when transmitting sensitive information to us.
YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS
To the extent provided by the law of your jurisdiction, you may exercise your privacy rights and choices by sending your request by email to [email protected]. We will verify your request and may request additional information to do so. You may designate an authorized agent to exercise these rights on your behalf.
There may be situations where we cannot grant your request—for example, if you ask us to delete your transaction data and EQ Office is legally obligated to keep a record of that transaction to comply with law. We may also decline to grant a request where permitted or required by law.
