Privacy Policy

Minerva Associates Privacy Policy

August 15, 2018

Your privacy is an important factor that Minerva Associates (that’s us) considers in the development of our marketing efforts. We are committed to being transparent and open. This Minerva Associates Privacy Policy explains generally how we receive information about you, and what we do with that information once we have it. Minerva Associates’ software use and in-application information collection policies are governed by separate Terms and Conditions and ancillary agreements executed during the purchasing process.

What do we mean by “personal information?”

For us, “personal information” means information supplied by you via the Internet (web sites, third-party advertising, etc.) which identifies you, like your name or email address.

Any information that falls outside of this is “non-personal information.”

If we store your personal information with information that is non-personal, we will consider the combination as personal information. If we remove all personal information from a set of data then the remaining is non-personal information.

How do we learn information about you?

We learn information about you when:

  • you give it to us directly or indirectly (e.g., when you supply information in our contact page, inquiry about products and services directly or to a third party workig on behalf of Minerva Assocaites);
  • when we try and understand more about you based on information you’ve given to us (e.g., when we use your IP address).

What do we do with your information once we have it?

When you give us information, we will use it in the ways for which you’ve given us permission. Generally, we use your information to supply information about our products and services.

When do we share your information with others?

  • When we have asked and received your permission to share it.
  • For processing or providing information on products and services offered by other SencorpWhite companies, but only if those entities receiving your information are obligated to handle the data in ways that are approved by Minerva Associates.
  • When the law requires it. We follow the law whenever we receive requests about you from a government or related to a lawsuit. We’ll notify you when we’re asked to hand over your personal information in this way unless we’re legally prohibited from doing so. When we receive requests like this, we’ll only release your personal information if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. Nothing in this policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party’s request to disclose your information.
  • When we believe it is necessary to prevent harm to you or someone else. We will only share your information in this way if we have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of you, our other users, Minerva Associates or the public.
  • If our organizational structure or status changes (if we undergo a restructuring, are acquired, or go bankrupt) we may pass your information to a successor or subsidiary.

How do we store and protect your personal information?

We are committed to protecting your personal information once we have it. We implement physical, business and technical security measures. Despite our efforts, if we learn of a security breach, we’ll notify you so that you can take appropriate protective steps.

We also don’t want your personal information for any longer than we need it, so we only keep it long enough to do what we collected it for. Once we don’t need it, we take steps to destroy it unless we are required by law to keep it longer.

What else should you know?

We’re a global organization and our computers are in several different places around the world. We also use service providers whose computers may also be in various countries. This means that your information might end up on one of those computers in another country, and that country may have a different level of data protection regulation than yours. By giving us information, you consent to this kind of transfer of your information. No matter what country your information is in, we comply with applicable law and will also abide by the commitments we make in this privacy policy.

If you are under 13, we don’t want your personal information, and you must not provide it to us. If you are a parent and believe that your child who is under 13 has provided us with personal information, please contact us to have your child’s information removed.

What if we change this privacy policy or any of our privacy notices?

We may need to change this policy and our notices. The updates will be posted online. If the changes are substantive, we will announce the update through Minerva Associates’ usual channels for such announcements such as blog posts. Your continued use of the site after the effective date of such changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes. To make your review more convenient, we will post an effective date at the top of the page.
