Access to Data Controlled by our Customers

Channel Portal acknowledges that you have the right to access your personal information. Typically, Channel Portal is a data processor who collects information under the direction of its Customer and has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes.

If you are a customer or a partner of one of our customers and would no longer like to be contacted by one of our customers that use our service, please contact the customer that you interact with directly.

Channel Portal will respond to such requests within 30 business days.

Security

The security of your personal information and our customers’ information is important to us.

When you enter sensitive information (such as login credentials) on our application services login, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure transport layer security (TLS). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you have any questions about security on our web site or within Channel Portal’s application services, you can contact us at privacy@channelportal.com.

Category 2 — Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how you use our web site — for instance, which pages you go to most. This data may be used to help optimize our web site and make them easier for you to navigate. These cookies are also used to let affiliates know if you came to one of our web site from an affiliate. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.

Category 3 — Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our web site to remember choices you make while browsing.

You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed.

Web Beacons

Channel Portal uses web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about customers and visitors’ usage of the company’s web site and interaction with emails from the Company.

Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular web site tied to the web beacon, and a description of a web site tied to the Web beacon. For example, Channel Portal may place Web beacons in marketing emails that notify the Company when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of the Company’s web site. Channel Portal uses web beacons to operate and improve the Company’s web sites and email communications.

Channel Portal may use information from web beacons in combination with data about Channel Portal customers to provide you with information about the Company and services.

This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you.

Local Storage

We use Local Storage (LS) such as HTML5 to store content information and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our site or to display advertising based upon your web browsing activity use HTML 5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5.

Social Media Features

The Company’s web site may use social media features, such as the Facebook ‘like’ button ("Social Media Features"). These features may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on the Company’s web site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. You may be given the option by such Social Media Features to post information about your activities on the Company’s web site to a profile page of yours that is provided by a third party Social Media network in order to share with others within your network. Social Media Features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on the Company’s web site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing the relevant Social Media Features.

Do Not Track

Currently, various browsers (such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari) offer a "do not track" or "DNT" option. Channel Portal does not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals with respect to the Company’s web site, in part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies or regulators, including no consistent standard of interpreting user intent.

Channel Portal takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.

Behavioral Targeting / Re-Targeting

We may partner with a third party to either display advertising on our website or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partner may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on this web site and other web sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking here (or if located in the European Union click here). Please note this does not opt you out of being served ads. You will continue to receive generic ads.
