Privacy Policy

Thank you for reviewing Estimé's website Privacy Policy. Estimé is sensitive to the issue of confidentiality in online dealings and is committed to protecting individual privacy. This Privacy Policy is intended to inform users about the general approach Estimé uses in collecting, using, and disseminating user information via www.estimeinc.com.

What data do we collect automatically and why?


When you visit Estimé's website, and you have not otherwise identified yourself (e.g., via registration with the Estimé's website), our web server automatically recognizes your domain name, but not your e-mail address. We collect the domain name and monitor general website use and traffic patterns to improve our web website and the products and services we offer. Estimé uses web server logs to collect data for metric purposes. Examples of the types of data collected are IP addresses, referral pages, date and time of website access, and portions of the website that you visit. We may use data collected to customize the content and layout of our pages for each individual visitor.

Do we use Cookies or Tracers?

Cookies are small data files placed on your hard drive by a website server when you visit various websites. Estimé may use cookies for tracking purposes or to make the website easier to use. Cookies are currently the only way to identify a unique anonymous visitor effectively and understand how they navigate our web website. An anonymous visitor to our website remains anonymous in all cases. We do not attempt to identify visitors if they do not voluntarily submit personal information to us. With most internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Cookies offer enhanced functionality to the user, but whether you allow a cookie to be placed on your computer is up to you.

In some instances, we use tracking scripts or tracers that recognize a unique identifier from a cookie placed on your hard drive by another website. Those tracers are used by Estimé solely to gauge the success of our own advertising. For instance, we may use a tracer to determine whether you visit our employment pages after visiting a resume or career website where Estimé placed a banner advertisement. We do not use tracers to gather information on your use of the internet unrelated to Estimé. Please note that Estimé does not use tracers to identify your personal information, and you remain anonymous unless and until you choose to register.

Do we collect personal information?

In some cases, Estimé requests personally-identifiable information from you in order to satisfy the underlying transaction or purpose for you accessing Estime website. Examples of personally-identifiable information include names, e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, etc. Please note that we do not consider aggregated information, from which personally-identifiable information has been removed, to be private.

What happens if I register?

Registration is allowed or required on certain portion of Estimé's website. Please refer to the agreements and policies applicable to the Estimé website for which you provide registration information in order to assure that you understand the applicable privacy practices. Estimé may collect registration data in order to monitor compliance with the terms of use governing the website and to set up access permissions to certain Estimé websites.

What security is provided?

We do not treat your general interaction with Estimé (e.g., submission of suggestions) as confidential. However, certain portions of Estimé's website may conduct transactions for which heightened security is appropriate. For instance, certain portions of Estimé's website encrypt your personal information (e.g., for transmission of credit card data), so that only appropriate personnel are able to decode your information. Note that most internet browsers also offer security alerts that permit you to determine whether your transmissions are protected. Please refer to the agreements and policies applicable to the Estimé website for which you provide personal information in order to assure that you understand applicable security practices.

When would we disclose your information?

Estimé does not rent, sell, or trade any personally-identifiable information about you (e.g., e-mail addresses) to third parties. Certain portions of the Estimé website may disclose information to third parties assisting us in processing a transaction requested by you (e.g., credit card service providers). In order to cooperate with legitimate governmental requests, subpoenas, or court orders, to protect Estimé and its systems and customers, and to ensure the integrity and operation of Estimé's business and systems, Estimé may access and disclose any information it considers necessary or appropriate under the circumstances.

What about children's privacy?

Estimé asks children under 13 not to transmit any information to the website. Estimé welcomes the parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 to use the website and provide any information, service, or product gained from the website to their child.

What if data is transmitted internationally?

If you are one of our international guests, we realize that you may want to know whether your personal information will be transferred out of your country of origin. When you register or request a transaction on Estimé's website, your personal data may be transferred to computers in the United States in order to process your request, but we have no agreements to provide information of any kind to foreign governments.

Does Estimé's privacy policy apply to the websites of Estimé's affiliates?

During your access of Estimé's website, you may link with other networked web pages and websites operated by Estimé and its subsidiaries and affiliates. Not all of those sites have adopted Estimé's policy. Those websites may adopt different privacy policies.

What about external links?

For the convenience of our website visitors, Estimé may provide links to third party web websites that are external to Estimé's website. Those web websites are not operated or controlled by Estimé, and Estimé is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such external websites.

How does Estimé remain current?

Estimé may, at its discretion, revise its privacy policy to remain current. The date of the current version is noted below. Estimé advises you to check periodically to review its privacy policy as users of the website will be bound by the current version.
