The information Paragon collects is used in a variety of ways, including:
We do not disclose Personal Information to third parties, except when one or more of the following conditions is true:
Prior to sharing of Your Personal Information with others, agreements are made between Paragon and such outside parties to whom we are transferring data. If Paragon becomes aware that any such outside party is improperly using or disclosing Personal Information, it will notify that outside party and request that it take reasonable steps to cease such use or disclosure.
We may also disclose aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the Website to our existing or potential business partners or other third parties, or in response to a government request. We may also share aggregated demographic and preference data with third parties to enable the provision of targeted information, promotions, offers and/or discounts on services.
You may contact Paragon to ask us whether we are keeping information about You, how Your information is being used, to update or delete Your information or opt-out of the collection and use of certain information, by sending a facsimile to (323) 651-1867 or sending an e-mail to [email protected] specifying the nature and scope of Your request. If You choose to delete Your information or opt-out of the collection and use of Your information, You understand that certain services may no longer be available to You. Please state in Your correspondence the details of Your request. We may require proof of Your identity before we provide You with the requested information. We allow You to challenge the data that we hold about You and, where appropriate, You may have the data erased, rectified, amended or completed. Approved requests will be processed within ten (10) days of the date on which we approve the request.
The Personal Information that You provide and we collect is stored within databases that we control directly or through our Administrative Contractors. As we deem appropriate, we use security measures consistent with industry standards, such as firewalls, to protect Your Personal Information. However, since no security system is impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that information You supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
Your information may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of Your state, province or country where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those where You live. If You are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, please be aware that we transfer Personal Information to the United States and process and store it there. By submitting Your Personal Information, You consent to having Your personal data transferred to, processed and stored in the United States.
Please note that You may have cookies placed on Your computer by third-party websites that refer You to our Website. Although we do not share Your Personal Information with these third-party websites unless You have authorized us to do so, they may be able to link certain non-personally identifiable information we transfer to them with Personal Information they previously collected from You. Please review the privacy policies of each website You visit to better understand their privacy practices. In addition, Paragon would like to inform You that, anytime You click on links (including advertising banners) that take You to third-party websites, You will be subject to the third parties' privacy policies. While we support the protection of our customers' privacy on the Internet, Paragon expressly disclaims any and all liability for the actions of third parties, including, but not limited to, actions relating to the use and/or disclosure of Personal Information by third parties.
