Security

We know how important your personal information is to you and we take our responsibility to protect any information that you provide to us very seriously. In order to protect any personally identifiable information that we collect about you, we have implemented physical, electronic and administrative measures to prevent unauthorized access to or unauthorized disclosure of your information.

Optania maintains secure data networks protected by firewalls and systems access with passwords that comply with industry standards.

Your Information and the Psylio Platform

It is not necessary to give us any personal information to visit the Psylio Platform. We may, however, collect personally identifying information from our Users through the Psylio Platform, including when setting up their Account. If you decide to provide us with information, we may provide you with information about products, services and/or events that may be of interest to you.

When you create a Psylio Account, we may ask you for certain information to set up your account. You do not have to create a Psylio Account to access the Psylio Platform.

Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any information you may provide publicly in the user forums of the Psylio Platform, as the case may be (such as chat rooms, bulletin boards or similar Web pages). You should keep in mind that whenever you publicly disclose information about yourself online, this information may be collected and used by people you do not know. We shall not be liable for any actions or policies of any third parties that collect any information that users may disclose in such forums or other public sites, if any, of the Psylio Platform.

Cookies and Web Beacons

The Psylio Platform may use cookies and similar technologies from time to time to better recognize you when you return to the Psylio Platform. A cookie is a small data file stored on a User’s device by a Web server. Cookies are used to help us identify you when you return to the Psylio Platform in order to adapt the information you receive while browsing the Psylio Platform. You are always free to block cookies if your device allows it, but this may prevent you from accessing parts of the Psylio Platform.

Our Web pages or email messages may contain small graphic images called “Web beacons” (also sometimes called “pixel tags”) that allow us to track and collect certain limited information about our Users on the Psylio Platform, such as the type of device requesting the Web beacon, the IP address of the device to which the Web beacon is transmitted and the time during which the Web beacon is viewed. Web beacons may be invisible to the user but, in general, any electronic image viewed as part of a Web page or email, including HTML content, may act as a Web beacon. We may use Web beacons to count the number of visitors to our Web pages or track the browsing habits of our users on the Psylio Platform and we may include Web beacons in emails to count how many messages have actually been opened or have prompted a reaction. We use Web beacons to compile statistics about our Platform; we do not link the information collected by our Web beacons to the personally identifiable information you provided when you registered on the Psylio Platform.

Other Data Collection

When you visit the Psylio Platform, we may collect and store certain non-personally identifiable information in log files such as: the domain name, the hosting company from which you access the Internet (e.g., aol.com or unh.edu), the IP address of the device you are using, the browser software you are using and your operating system, the date and time you access the Psylio Platform, the Website’s Internet address from which you connected to the Psylio Platform, the Website you visit when you leave the Psylio Platform and the number of “clicks” you have made on the Psylio Platform. We collect this information to analyze trends, manage the Psylio Platform and collect broad demographic information for global purposes. We may also determine the technology available to your browser in order to offer you the most appropriate version of the Web page. We may also use information collected about our users to provide customized content, advertisements, products and services or to improve content, navigation on the Psylio Platform or for any other internal purpose.

Your Choices Regarding Disclosure and Modifications to Your Personal Information

If you do not want your personally identifiable information to be used as described in this Privacy Policy, please unsubscribe from the Psylio Platform, terminate your use of it and/or close your Psylio Account. Even if you stop using the Psylio Platform or unsubscribe in accordance with the foregoing and subject to the provisions of the Act Respecting the Protection of Personal Information in the Private Sector, personally identifiable information may remain in Optania’s database.
