COMBASE USA may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, COMBASE USA may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, perform follow up to your inquiry or interests, or arrange for deliveries.

Use of Cookies

COMBASE USA uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize COMBASE USA pages, or register with COMBASE USA site or services, a cookie helps COMBASE USA to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same COMBASE USA website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the COMBASE USA features that you customized.

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 interactive features of the COMBASE USA services or websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

COMBASE USA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. COMBASE USA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Social Media and Third Party Websites

The COMBASE USA uses some social media tools and websites to interact with its customers and resource partners. Social media websites are used to publicize COMBASE USA programs and services and engage with members of the public. The COMBASE USA does not use third party websites to solicit and collect personal information from individuals. Any personal information collected by a third party website will not be transmitted to COMBASE USA unless required for law enforcement purposes or as otherwise permitted by law. COMBASE USA’s privacy and other web policies do not apply to these third party sites and we encourage you to read the policies of the third party site when deciding whether to use it.

The COMBASE USA site contains links to websites of other organizations. When you follow a link to another site, you leave the COMBASE USA site and your website interactions are no longer protected by our privacy policy. COMBASE USA is not responsible for, and does not endorse the privacy or security practices and content of sites to which COMBASE USA links.
