Information we collect from you
Securitas does not collect, store or process personal information unless you choose to register with us.
If you choose to register with us at our website, Securitas collects and stores the information we require you to provide: your name, email address and password you choose. We combine and store this information together with additional information that we request in the Account Settings section at and after registration, such as the industry, sector, and type of publication that a publisher intends to create, and any PayPal account number. We also will combine your personal information with all the materials that you upload such as PDF and SWF files, video and audio files, and fonts, as well as with the operational information that we collect via technology while you browse our site (see the section below.)
Information collected via technology; Browsing
When you browse our website Securitas’s servers automatically log standard technical/operational information, such as your IP address, browser type and language, and the date and time of your request, as well as any referring URL (the website you came from.). Securitas uses this operational information to help us improve our service and customize your experience at our site. We use aggregated information to track trends and analyse use patterns.
Cookies: Securitas also uses “cookies” – small files containing a string of characters sent to your computer that uniquely identifies your browse. Sending a cookie enables us to collect operational information and to keep a record of your preferences. We use session cookies to keep you logged in while you use features of our service; these disappear after you close your browser. If you agree to stay logged in, we will also use a persistent cookie that stays in your browser and allows us to recognize you when you return to the site.
Third party analytics: Securitas uses analytics companies/tracking services that employ shared browser objects (Flash cookies or LSOs) or web beacons to administer our website, to enhance your online experience and to learn about how you use Securitas services in order to improve the quality of our services. This data includes usage and user statistics, but is not used to identify you. These third party partners perform analytics for others and us.
Securitas does not sell, trade, rent or otherwise share your personally identifiable information, including any of your user profile data that you create, with other organizations for their marketing or promotional uses.
Securitas may also disclose to third parties anonymous aggregated user information that is not personally identifiable.
Data Integrity; your right to manage your information
Do not track signals
There is no uniform or consistent standard or definition for responding to, processing, or communicating Do Not Track signals. At this time Securitas’s Website does not function differently based on a user's Do Not Track signal. For more information on Do Not Track signals, see All About Do Not Track.
Data localisation obligations
If you reside in a jurisdiction that imposes “data localisation” or “data residency” obligations (i.e., requiring that Personal Information of its residents be kept within the territorial boundaries of such jurisdiction), and we become aware of that, we may maintain your Personal Information within such territorial boundaries, if we are legally obligated to do so. For example, if we learn that you reside in the Russian Federation, we may be required to maintain your Personal Information there, whether independently or with local data storage and processing provider.
You acknowledge and agree that while doing so, we may continue to collect, store and use your Personal Information elsewhere, including in the United States of America as explained above.
Please refer to the section on cookies under “Information collected via Technology.”
Accuracy and access
You can contact us by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org at any time to review, update, delete or correct (for future use) your personally identifiable information maintained by Securitas. We will reply to your request within thirty (30) days of submission. For your protection, you will be required to provide proof of your identity to obtain a copy of your personal information. You can help us maintain accurate records by updating your registration information or informing us at email@example.com changes or modifications to your personal information.
Securitas implements security measures designed to protect your personal information against unauthorized access or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction. Other measures include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.
We endeavour to restrict access to personal information to Securitas employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and are required to meet these obligations.
If Securitas learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Securitas may post a notice on the website if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach you should notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is your responsibility to ensure the security of your Securitas account password, and not to reveal this information to others. Selecting a longer password with a mix of letters, numbers and symbols makes it more difficult for others to guess your password. It is also helpful to change passwords on a regular basis.
Children Under 13
IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS SECURITAS AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER.
Securitas does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, or email address. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a member of Securitas, then please contact Securitas at email@example.com to have that child's account terminated and information deleted.
In the event of merger or sale
In the event that Securitas is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, or undergoes a change of control or any form of sale or transfer of some or all of its assets, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from users as part of that merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.
