Why We Collect Personal Information
We collect your personal information because it helps us deliver a superior level of customer service. It enables us to give you convenient access to our products and services and focus on categories of most significant interest to you. Also, your personal information helps us keep you posted on the latest service announcements, special offers, and events of which you might like to bt.
What Information We Collect and How We May Use It
There are many situations in which your personal information may help us give you better service. For example:
We may ask for your personal information when you’re discussing a service issue on the phone with us. When you interact with Niche Partnership Consulting, we may collect personal information relevant to the situation, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and contact preferences; your credit card information and other information. We also collect data for market research purposes – such as your occupation and where you use your computer – to gain a better understanding of our clients and thus provide more valuable service. We collect information regarding client activities on our websites. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to clients and to understand which parts of our websites, services, and Internet services are of most interest to them.
We may use personal information to provide services that you have requested as well as for auditing, research, and analysis to improve Niche Partnership Consulting’s services.
We collect personal information about users of our websites through activities such as purchase transactions and completion of forms on our websites. Such information is collected when users register or subscribe to accounts or features on our websites, make online purchases, complete surveys, comment on our blogs, opt-in to our email marketing list, submit a comment or question to us using a “contact us” form or similar feature, send us an email, or in any other way provide personal information voluntarily to us through our websites.
If you post blog comments, use a bulletin board, chat room, or other similar features on a Niche Partnership Consulting website, you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. Niche Partnership Consulting is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums. For example, if you choose to make information, which was previously non-public, available by enabling certain user features, Niche Partnership Consulting will collect that information from your interaction and the information will become publicly available.
When We Disclose Your Information
Niche Partnership Consulting takes your privacy very seriously. Niche Partnership Consulting does not sell or rent your contact information to other marketers.
Except as otherwise disclosed to you, we will not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to third parties without notifying you of our intent to share the personal data in advance and allowing you to prevent your personal information from being shared.
Within Niche Partnership Consulting
Our Service Providers, Vendors, and Strategic Partners
There are times when it may be advantageous for Niche Partnership Consulting to make certain personal information about you available to companies that Niche Partnership Consulting has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for Niche Partnership Consulting to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, extend credit, fulfill customer orders, deliver services to you, manage and enhance client data, provide client service, assess your interest in our services, or conduct client research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are also obligated to protect your personal information per Niche Partnership Consulting’s policies, except if we inform you otherwise at the time of collection. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to purchase services, have services delivered to you, receive client service, provide us feedback to improve our services, or access certain services, offers, and content on the Niche Partnership Consulting websites.
We may disclose aggregate statistics regarding user behavior as a measure of interest in, and use of, our website and emails to third parties in the form of aggregate data, such as overall patterns or demographic reports that do not describe or identify any individual user.
We may also offer joint promotions or programs that, for participation, will require personal information to be shared with third parties. In such instances, you will be provided with notice of the sharing before you decide to participate.
At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.
We also may disclose user information when we have reason to believe that someone is causing injury to or interference with our rights or property, other users of the website, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
