Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

  1. Information Collected
  2. Information Automatically Collected

When you visit the Site, we automatically receive certain information from your browser or mobile device, such as your browser type, the operating system of your device, the URL of the site from which you came and the URL of the site you visit when leaving the Site.  We also receive your IP address and the name of your ISP or your mobile carrier.  Depending on your device’s settings, we may also receive location data and other types of information sent from third-party services or GPS-enabled devices.  As you use the Site, we may also collect information about such usage and your actions on our Site, such as pages you viewed, access times, and how long you spent on a page.  We may use cookies to collect such information, as described in more detail below.

This information is considered Non-Personal Information we can use for any purpose, including to help us improve the Site and to enhance your and other users’ experience.  However, we will treat as Personally Identifiable Information any item that, either alone or together with other information, we could use to identify you as a natural person, i.e., an individual.  For example, without your permission, we will not share with third-parties the link between your IP address and your Personally Identifiable Information, except as otherwise provided for in this Privacy Policy.

  1. Information You Provide

You do not have to provide any Personally Identifiable Information to browse the Site.  However, you may voluntarily send us information from the Site, including Personally Identifiable Information.  Accordingly, with your consent, we may collect Personally Identifiable Information about you from the following sources:

  • Information you give us through a contact page or other forms on the Site or in any other manner; or
  • Information you send us by any medium, including texts, mail, telephone, and social media interaction; or
  • If you use a mobile device platform to access the Site or to communicate with us, information transmitted from your mobile device.
  1. How we use your information

We may use the information we collect from you for the following purposes, which include:

  • Providing our services and products;
  • Research analysis and auditing, in order to improve our services and products, or to protect or maintain the same;
  • Maintaining and ensuring the viability and integrity of our network;
  • Marketing and promotional efforts;
  • Protecting the rights or property of SkySpecs, or our users or partners;
  • Creating, researching and developing new services and products; and
  • Communications with you.

SkySpecs may combine Non-Personal Information you provide through the Site with information from other users to create aggregate data.  Aggregate data does not (i) contain any information that could identify you, or (ii) include your personal contact information.  SkySpecs will not disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to any third-party without your prior permission, except as otherwise permitted by this Privacy Policy.

  1. Cookies

The Site may send a “cookie” to your computer.  A cookie is a small piece of data sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive.  A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.  Cookies do not damage your system.  Cookies allow us to recognize you as a user when you return to the Site using the same computer and web browser.  We use cookies to identify which areas of our site you have visited.  We also may use this information to better personalize the content you see on the Site.  Skyspecs does not store unencrypted Personally Identifiable Information in the cookies.

To help us optimize the Site, we may allow other authorized third-parties to place or recognize unique cookies on your browser.  Any information provided to third-parties through cookies will not be Personally Identifiable Information, but may provide general segment information to enhance your user experience by providing more relevant marketing.  Third-party services and tools we use and which may send cookies to users of the Site, and to collect certain information from users, include:

Google Analytics: Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit the Site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Site.  We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve the Site.  Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Site, rather than your name or other identifying information.  You can review Google’s privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.  We do not combine the information collected through Google Analytics with Personally Identifiable Information.  Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google.  Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this Site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy.  You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to the Site by disabling cookies on Your browser (see below).  Google shares its data with undisclosed third-parties.

Some browsers may allow you to manage the storage of cookies on your device.  If supported by your browser, you may set your browser to refuse all cookies (or, sometimes all third-party cookies) or to alert you when a cookie is set.  However, if you select these settings, you may be unable to access certain parts of the Site.  Unless you have adjusted your browser setting to refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies.  For more information about how to manage your cookies preferences, use the ‘help’ menu of your web browser or explore the customer support sections of your web browser.  To opt-out of all cookies or certain advertising cookies, visit the company website for your browser.

Here are links to some browsers’ websites:

  • Google Chrome: www.google.com
  • Internet Explorer: support.microsoft.com
  • Mozilla Firefox: support.mozilla.org
  • Safari: support.apple.com
  • Opera: www.opera.com

If you turn cookies off, some of the features on the Site may not work properly.

  1. Do Not Track Notice  
    Your browser may provide you with the option to send a “Do Not Track” signal to websites you visit.  This signal is used to request that websites not send the requesting device cookies, but websites have no obligation to respond to such signal or to modify their operation.  At the current time, the Site is not programmed to recognize Do Not Track signals, so the Site will not treat you differently if we receive such signals from your browser and we may not comply with Do Not Track settings on your browser.
  2. How we protect your information
  • We do not use vulnerability scanning and/or scanning to PCI standards.
  • We only provide articles and information. We never ask for credit card numbers.
  • We use regular Malware Scanning.

Your personal information is stored on our network and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you send us through the Site is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

We implement a variety of security measures when a user enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information.

All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.

  1. Length of Time Personal Information is Retained

Skyspecs retains personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the business purpose for which you provided it to us and any other legitimate business purpose, including without limitation, for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.  We may also retain offline archival copies of data for the applicable statutory periods.  If you would like more details about our data retention policies, please contact us.

  1. Links to Other Sites

The Site may contain links to other websites.  SkySpecs is not responsible for the actions, practices, or content of websites linked to or from the Site.  You understand such websites may require you to agree to their terms of use and that we have no control over these terms.  As always, you understand it is your responsibility to verify your legal use of a website, and use of information from the website with the corresponding website owner

  1. California Privacy Rights

Under Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code, residents of California can obtain certain information from companies with whom they have an established business relationship.  That information is about the Personally Identifiable Information those companies have shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year.  The law requires companies to inform consumers about the categories of Personally Identifiable Information shared with third-parties, the names and addresses of those third-parties, and examples of the services or products marketed by those third parties.  To request a copy of the information disclosure provided by Skyspecs under Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code, please contact us via email to info@skyspecs.com.

For further information, go to:  www.consumercal.org

  1. Children Online Privacy Protection Act

Skyspecs takes special care to protect the privacy needs of children under the age of 13 and Skyspecs encourages parents to be an active participant in their child’s online activities.  Skyspecs abides by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and other relevant laws.  The website does not target and is not intended for children under the age of 13, and Skyspecs will not knowingly collect personal information from them.  In fact, the Site is not intended for anyone under the age of 18.  If Skyspecs discovers personal data from a child under the age of 13 is gathered through the Site, without parental consent, Skyspecs will eliminate that data.  If you are under 13, you must ask a parent or legal guardian for permission prior to submitting any information to this Site.

  1. Third-party disclosure and Information Sharing

Except as set forth below or as specifically agreed to by You, Skyspecs will not disclose any Personally Identifiable Information gathered from you on the Site.

  1.              We may share Personally Identifiable information in a limited fashion to our contractors, consultants and service providers that perform services on our behalf, including operation of the Site technology, marketing services, and other related services.  Unless you have opted-out (see Section 11.C. below) of such sharing, these contractors, consultants and service providers also may have access to your email address to send newsletters or other information to you on our behalf.  Access to your Personally Identifiable Information by such contractors, consultants and service providers is limited to the information reasonably necessary for the contractor, consultant or service provider to perform its limited function for Skyspecs.  We also contractually require that such contractors, consultants and service providers: (i) protect the privacy of your Personally Identifiable Information consistent with this Privacy Policy, and (ii) not use or disclose your Personally Identifiable Information for any purpose other than providing us with products and services as required by law.
  2. We may share Personally Identifiable Information we collect (i) when required or advised to do so in response to a valid legal requirement, such as a state or federal law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order; or (ii) in special cases, such as in response to a physical threat to you or others, to protect property, or assert legal rights or defend ourselves in litigation.  If we are legally compelled to disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to a third party, we will attempt to notify you unless doing so would violate the law or a court order.
  3. If you do not want us to share your information with our contractors and service provider, as described above, you can direct us not to share that information by contacting us.  However, if you choose to opt-out, we may not be able to continue to provide you with some or any of the services. An opt-out of information sharing will not apply to information sharing arrangements described Section 11.B.
  4. Finally, Skyspecs may provide content and services to you through websites other than our own.  Skyspecs will not disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to these third-party websites without your consent. However, any information you choose to disclose on such sites is NOT subject to this Privacy Policy.
  5. Access to Data

Individuals have the right to know what Personally Identifiable Information of theirs is stored by Skyspecs and to ensure that such personal data is accurate and relevant for the purposes for which Skyspecs collected it. Skyspecs will make its best effort to allow individuals access to view their own data as well as to correct, to alter or to delete such data.

However, where such access is unreasonable, requires a disproportionate effort, jeopardizes the privacy of other Skyspecs users, or contravenes the law, our policies, or reasonable business practice, requests to access data may be declined. User identification is required to access data for these reasons, and the process and procedures for various types of access may differ. Please contact us for further information.

If you are an individual, unless you reside in California or another jurisdiction that requires us to provide the information without charge, we may charge you a fee to receive a copy of this data.  For a copy of or reasonable access to your personal data please contact us.

  1. Data Portability

Skyspecs will comply with your request to obtain a copy of the information you have shared through our services that relates to you as a natural person.  You have rights to obtain a copy of some of the Personally Identifiable Information that we have collected and hold (“right to data portability”).

The right to data portability only applies:

  • to personal information you have provided to us (i.e. not any other information);
  • where we are processing your personal information because you have provided your consent for us to do so, or under a contract with you; and
  • when processing is carried out by automated means.

‍We can refuse your data portability request if the processing does not satisfy the above criteria.  Also, if the personal information concerns more than one individual, we may not be able to transfer the information to you if doing so would prejudice the other person’s rights.

  1. European Union Cross-Border Transfer of Data Disclosure

Skyspecs is headquartered in the United States of America.  Personally Identifiable Information may be accessed by us or transferred to us in the United States or to our affiliates, business partners, merchants, or service providers in the United States of America.  By providing us with Personally Identifiable Information, you consent to the transfer and processing of your Personally Identifiable Information within the United States of America.  Skyspecs will protect the privacy and security of your Personally Identifiable Information according to our Privacy Policy, regardless of where it is processed or stored.

If you do not consent to having your information processed and stored in the United States of America, please do not provide it to Skyspecs.

  1. Data Retention Policies

Skyspecs periodically reviews its collection, storage and processing procedures and policies to ensure that it is in compliance with applicable law.  Skyspecs retains Personally Identifiable Information for so long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose in which it was provided and for purposes set forth in Section 11, including without limitation the maintenance of said information in archival format.

  1. Opting out of Google Ads.

You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative Opt Out page or by using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.

  1. CAN-SPAM Act.

Skyspecs complies with the federal CAN-SPAM Act.  You can always opt out of receipt of further email correspondence from us, except for the receipt of invoices for services or products you order from us or communications to complete a transaction you have initiated.
