SAFER Systems collects information from you in two ways: (i) information you give to us, and (ii) information that we gather from your use of our Service, each as more specifically described below.  Such information is made up of “Personal Information” and “Non-Personal Information.”

“Non-Personal Information” means information that does not specifically identify you.

Information you give to us.

We collect information that you give to us.  For example, our Services may require that you submit information about yourself to us to access our Services, request product information or demonstrations, subscribe to our newsletter or our publications, or to contact us.  Such submission may include your disclosure to us of Personal Information.  We may also receive information from you through the use of the Services.

Information we gather from your use of our Services.

We, like many service providers, collect information about what parts of our Services you use and how you use them.  Information we may gather includes, but is not limited to:

  • Computer or browser information such as your system activity, the domain name of the web site from which you linked to our Services, your location (country and/or city), the time and duration of your use of our Services and any queries, browser type, browser language, and your Internet Service Provider.
