Thank you for visiting the Project Simpatico Website. This privacy policy explains how we handle the personally identifiable information (“PII”) that you provide to us when you visit us online to browse, obtain information, or conduct a transaction. It does not apply to information we collect offline. PII includes information that is personal in nature and that may be used to identify you. You may provide PII to us when you send us an e-mail message, request information, sign up for a newsletter, fill out a survey or order materials. We do collect some technical information that does not include PII when you visit the website. By accessing the website, you are consenting to the information collection and use practices described in this privacy policy.

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION.
As a general rule, we do not collect PII about you when you visit our website, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Submitting PII through our website is voluntary. By doing so, you are giving Project Simpatico your permission to use the information as described in this privacy policy.

EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS.
Our website allows you to send email messages. We will use the information you provide to respond to your inquiry. You should be reminded that email may not necessarily be secure against interception. Therefore, we suggest that you do not send sensitive PII, such as your credit card number, to us via email.

USE OF YOUR PII
We use PII collected through our website for the purposes described in this privacy policy. For example, we may use the PII we collect to:

  • provide the information you request and to process and complete any related transactions;
  • send you confirmations, and administrative messages and otherwise facilitate your use of, and our administration and operation of, the website;
  • request feedback and to otherwise contact you about your use of the website;
  • send you information about our organization or that we think will be of interest to you;
  • monitor and analyze site usage and trends, and to personalize and improve the website and our users’ experiences on the website;
  • respond to your emails, submissions, questions, comments, and requests and to provide customer service; and
  • fulfill any other purpose for which the information was collected.

In order to offer you a more consistent experience in your interactions with Project Simpatico, information collected by the website may be combined with information collected by Project Simpatico from other sources.

Additionally, we may share information with other companies so they may send you information about their products and services.

We may merge website-visitation data with demographic information, and we may use this information to provide more relevant content. We may combine website-visitation data with your PII in order to provide you with personalized content.

Project Simpatico may share PII with vendors, consultants, and other third parties who are engaged by or working with us and who need access to such information to carry out their duties.

Project Simpatico may disclose PII 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 Project Simpatico; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Project Simpatico or its affiliates; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Project Simpatico employees or agents, users of Project Simpatico products or services, or members of the public.

PII collected on the website may be stored and processed in the State of Washington or any other state or country in which Project Simpatico or its affiliates or agents maintain facilities, and by using the website you consent to any such transfer of information to another state or country.

INFORMATION COLLECTED AND STORED AUTOMATICALLY.
When you browse through our website, certain information about your visit can be collected. We automatically collect the following types of information about your visit:

  • Domain from which you access the Internet;
  • IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to a computer when surfing the Internet);

Project Simpatico uses a variety of different web measurement software tools. For example, we may use Google Analytics measurement software to collect the information listed above. The data is automatically sent to Google’s system and the system immediately aggregates the data.

USE OF COOKIES.
We may use cookies on the website to enhance your user experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server.

This simplifies the process of delivering relevant content, eases site navigation, and so on.

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 features of this or other websites you visit.

Web beacons, also known as clear gif technology, or action tags, may be used to assist in delivering the cookie on the website. This technology is a tool we may use to compile aggregated statistics about the website usage, such as how many visitors clicked on key elements (such as links or graphics) on a web page. We may share such website statistics with other companies.

THIRD PARTY WEBSITES AND APPLICATIONS
Project Simpatico uses social media websites and other kinds of third-party websites. Project Simpatico uses social media websites to engage in dialogue, share information and media, and collaborate with the public. Project Simpatico may also use these websites to make information and services widely available, and as a service for those seeking information. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with such websites, please visit the privacy policies of the third parties that provide these features.

SECURITY
Project Simpatico will use commercially reasonable efforts to protect your PII from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. However, due to computer hackers, electronic malfunctions, and other events, Project Simpatico cannot guarantee that such safeguards will always protect such information.
