Visible Progress is committed to protecting your privacy. This Statement of Privacy applies to the Visible Progress website and governs data collection and usage. By using the Visible Progress website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of Your Personal Information
Visible Progress collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home and/or work address and/or telephone number. Visible Progress also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
Visible Progress encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from Visible Progress so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. Visible Progress is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the Visible Progress and the use of your information by such outside websites.
Use of Your Personal Information
Visible Progress collects and uses your personal information to operate the Visible Progress website and deliver the services you have requested. Visible Progress may also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Visible Progress and its affiliates. Visible Progress may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services.
Visible Progress does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Visible Progress may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Visible Progress may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, or arrange for deliveries. Such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Visible Progress, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Visible Progress keeps track of the websites and pages you visit within Visible Progress, in order to determine what Visible Progress services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Visible Progress to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Visible Progress will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Visible Progress or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Visible Progress (including enforcing this agreement); and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Visible Progress, or the public.
The Visible Progress website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Visible Progress pages, or register with Visible Progress site or services, a cookie helps Visible Progress to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Visible Progress website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Visible Progress features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Visible Progress services or websites you visit.
If you provide Visible Progress with user information, you have the following rights with respect to that information:
- To review the user information that you have supplied to us
- To request that we correct any errors, outdated information, or omissions in user information that you have supplied to us
- To request that your user information not be used to contact you
- To request that your user information be removed from any solicitation list that we use
- To request that your user information be deleted from our records and
- To opt out of being solicited by this website or third parties
If you request that your user information be deleted from our records, there may be a brief delay in our processing that request, while we verify that the request is valid and originates from you as opposed to an unauthorized third party. To exercise any of these rights, please CONTACT us.
Security of Your Personal Information
No method of safeguarding information is 100% secure. Visible Progress uses a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Visible Progress secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

When such a change is made, we will update the “Last Updated” date above.
