Types of information collected on ProductBrandStandards.com
There are two types of information collected on ProductBrandStandards.com: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information ("personal information”) is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name, mailing address, email address, etc. Personal information is only obtained when you voluntarily provide the information to us. For example, you will be asked to submit your name and email address to us (as part of the login process) if you wish to gain access to ProductBrandStandards.com. Additionally, you may be asked to submit your email address if you wish to communicate with us.
Once you choose to provide us with personal information, you can be assured it will be used only to support your relationship with Visa. We take seriously the trust you place in us and will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information ("non-personal information”) is information that does not identify you as an individual, such as your browser type, IP Address, the URL of the previous web site you visited, etc. Visa may automatically collect certain types of non-personal information from you when using ProductBrandStandards.com. We may also collect non-personal information that you voluntarily provide, such as information included in response to a questionnaire or survey.
Why we collect your information
Visa's primary purpose in collecting personal information on ProductBrandStandards.com is to provide you with a safe and efficient experience and to provide you with services and features that better meet your needs or requests. We only collect information that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.
How we collect information
Visa collects data when you provide information to us or through the use of web technology.
Information Collected Through You
If you choose to use certain services on ProductBrandStandards.com, we may require you to provide contact and identity information. Where possible, we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional. If you choose not to use a particular service or feature, you do not have to provide the contact or identity information it calls for.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected Through Technology
ProductBrandStandards.com may use cookie technology to improve your experience on ProductBrandStandards.com and gather data for web site statistical reporting. Cookie technology does not capture your individual email address or any personal information about you.
A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web site that is saved on your hard disk by your computer’s browser. It holds information a site may need to personalize your experience (i.e., rotating images on ProductBrandStandards.com home page) and gathers web site statistical data, such as which pages are visited, what is downloaded, the Internet provider’s domain name and country that our visitors come from and the addresses of sites visited immediately before and after coming to ProductBrandStandards.com. However, none of this is associated with you as an individual and is measured only in aggregate.
To browse without cookies, you can configure your browser to reject all cookies or to notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the "Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) Your experience of the ProductBrandStandards.com site may be different if you set your browser to block cookies.
ProductBrandStandards.com may use web beacons to serve advertising, enhance email advertising and track usage on ProductBrandStandards.com. We use third parties to manage web beacons and the data they collect. Web beacons do not capture your individual email address or any other personal information.
Web beacons, also called clear GIFs (a common format for image files), are invisible files on web pages that you visit. If you visit a page on ProductBrandStandards.com that contains a web beacon, it communicates with your computer to determine, among other things, whether you have been to that page before or viewed a particular advertisement.
ProductBrandStandards.com may collect IP addresses for the purposes of systems administration, server problem diagnosis and compiling aggregate information (such as how many visitors logged on to ProductBrandStandards.com). When you visit a particular web page on ProductBrandStandards.com, our servers log your IP address. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer automatically when you use the Internet.
Who we share information with
We take seriously the trust you place in us and will not sell, rent or lease your information to others.
Visa employs other companies and individuals ("agents”) to perform services on behalf of ProductBrandStandards.com, such as sending emails, providing marketing assistance, web site management and analyzing data. Such agents will have access to personal and non-personal information only as necessary to perform their services for us and are not permitted to use it for any other purpose.
Disclosure of personal information for legal purposes and protection of ProductBrandStandards.com and others: ProductBrandStandards.com reserves the right to share your personal information with third parties if we believe such action is necessary in order to: (a) conform with the requirements of the law or to comply with legal process served upon us; (b) protect or defend our legal rights or property, ProductBrandStandards.com or our users; or (c) investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person or violations of the terms and conditions of using ProductBrandStandards.com.
ProductBrandStandards.com is not intended for use by children. We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that personal information on a child under the age of 13 is collected, we will delete that information from our systems. We encourage parents and guardians to be familiar with the web sites that their children visit.
Keeping your information secure
The security of your personal information is very important to us, and we are committed to protecting the information that we collect. We have security measures in place at our facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that Visa has collected from you at our web site. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Visa cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk.
