Entities collecting personal information
Collection of personal information
As a visitor to this Site, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. In connection with other activities, such as ordering product offered on the Site, SeaYu may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, SeaYu may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including ZIP code), e-mail address, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal information. When ordering products or services on the Site, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
When you use the Site, SeaYu or third parties authorized by SeaYu may also collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to facilitate your use of the Site and its services. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, CPU speed, and the Internet Protocol ("IP") address of your computer. We use these environmental variables to facilitate and track your use of the Site and its services. SeaYu also uses such environmental variables to measure traffic patterns on the Site. Without expressly informing you in each particular circumstance, we do not match such information with any of your personal information.
When you submit personal information to SeaYu through this Site, you understand and agree that this information may be transferred across national boundaries and may be stored and processed in any of the countries in which SeaYu and its affiliates and subsidiaries maintain offices, including, without limitation, the United States. You also acknowledge that in certain countries or with respect to certain activities, the collection, transferring, storage, and processing of your information may be undertaken by trusted vendors of SeaYu. Such vendors are bound by contract not to use your personal information for their own purposes or provide it to any third parties. One instance where this could occur is in conjunction with framed pages in which the URL for the pages is not visible and the pages are being hosted by a vendor of SeaYu.
How your personal information is used
SeaYu collects your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. If you sign up for any of our special offers or programs, information is collected to fulfill the special offer. Your personal information is also used to keep you informed about product upgrades, special offers, and other products and services of SeaYu and selected third parties if you have so opted to receive such communications. SeaYu does not provide your personal information to third parties for direct marketing purposes.
SeaYu may collect information about the use of the Site; such as the types of products purchased and how many users we receive daily. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually. SeaYu may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.
Your choices with respect to personal information
There are other instances in which SeaYu may divulge your personal information. SeaYu may provide your personal information if necessary, in SeaYu's good faith judgment, to comply with laws or regulations of a governmental or regulatory body or in response to a valid subpoena, warrant, or order or to protect the rights of SeaYu or others.
Protection of your personal information
Personal information that you provide resides on a secure server and is only accessible to selected SeaYu personnel and contractors on a need to know basis, via password. Since this information is not accessible by you, you will not be asked to select a password in order to view or modify such information. Please note that any information you post to a review bulletin board or chat room, such as the SeaYu Product Reviews, is available to all persons accessing that location.
When you visit this Site, you can browse the Site and access important information without revealing your identity. In order to improve our Site, we use "cookies" to track your visit. A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a Web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card, and enables SeaYu to record your purchases. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. (For some Web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies will probably not be able to access those pages.)
