We may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. If you choose to make a purchase, we will ask for additional information, such as your credit card number and billing address, which is used to create an InFocus billing account.

If you apply for a job at InFocus, you provide your email address, educational and employment background and job interest data. InFocus will not use personal data submitted as part of the job application process for any other purpose.

Where we collect Personal Information through online forms, we will notify you of which fields are mandatory for the particular service or functionality you are requesting (i.e., through the use of an asterisk (*) next to such mandatory field), and which fields are optional. If you choose to provide information that is optional, we may use and disclose such information for the purposes described below.

We may use Personal Information to provide newsletters and other requested information, to answer questions and inquiries, to conduct activities in connection with the performance of requested or ongoing transactions, to conduct surveys in which you elect to participate, and where appropriate, to provide you with further information about our products and services

InFocus does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 and InFocus products and services do not target information to children under 13. InFocus is committed to protecting the privacy needs of children and we encourage parents to take an active role in your child’s online activities and interests.

Third-Party Service Providers

We use third-party service providers to provide product recommendations and enhance your shopping experience on our websites.

We use a cookie to store a unique session identifier, which allows us to maintain shopping cart and state selections from one page request to the next, and maintain session information from one visit to the next. By setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in more than once, thereby saving time while visiting our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still browse our site.

Some of our business partners (e.g., advertisers, tracking utility services) use cookies on our site. We have no access to or control over these cookies.

Web Beacons

We employ or our third party advertising partner employs a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.

IP Addresses

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our web site. It is not stored by us or disseminated to other parties for any reason.

Surveys & Contests

From time-to-time our sites may request Personal Information from you in connection with surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Personal Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes, and may also be used to provide you with additional information about our products or services, or those of our selected business partners.

Financial Information

We offer products and services that you may wish to purchase online. To complete these online financial transactions, our sites may request Personal Information including contact information (such as name, title, email address or shipping address) and credit card billing information.

Ordering

InFocus.com order forms request data from users including: Contact information such as name and shipping address; financial information such as credit card number, expiration date, billing address, and billing phone number. This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customers' orders. If we encounter difficulty when processing an order, this contact information is used to contact the user.

Bulletin Boards/Chat Rooms

If you use a bulletin board, discussion forum, or chat room on this site, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums. There are also testimonials from our clients on this site. They have consented to showing their personally identifiable information as part of the testimonial.

"Send this to a friend" Option

If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. We use the information you provided for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.

Log Files and Aggregate Information

Like most standard website servers, we collect and use IP addresses from browsing machines to analyze trends, administer the site, track pages that have been viewed, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. InFocus does not link this information with Personal Information about individual users. We reserve the right to share aggregate and anonymous information with potential partners and other third parties without restriction.

Disclosures of Personal Information

We may disclose Personal Information as necessary or appropriate in connection with any of the purposes for which we use Personal Information, including to subcontractors or service providers that help host or support the sites or otherwise provide technical assistance, fulfillment companies that help us to provide requested products or services, and business partners that help provide requested products, services, or information. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. We also reserve right to disclose Personal Information in connection with the sale or transfer of all or part of the business. In situations involving the sale or transfer of all or part of the business, we will seek to notify users of the ownership change by way of a prominent notice posted on our Web site. We also reserve the right to disclose Personal Information in connection with any judicial or administrative orders, law enforcement requests, or other applicable legal requirements. We value your privacy at InFocus.com, and will not release account information to anyone outside of the necessary core groups that help our business function unless our customers give us the authority to do so.

Onward Transfer

The personal information that you provide to InFocus may be transferred within InFocus Corporation and its subsidiaries and across state or country borders. This may be done to consolidate data storage and simplify the management of customer information.

Links

Our Web Sites may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that InFocus is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites, and this Privacy Policy does not apply to such sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.

Security

InFocus takes reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect the security of our users' Personal Information. When a secure form asks users to enter Personal Information, that information is encrypted and protected with the encryption software standard in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'. To learn more about SSL, please visit www.comodogroup.com.

While we use SSL encryption to protect certain financial information online, we also take reasonable steps to protect user information off-line. All of our users' Personal Information, not just the financial information mentioned above, is subject to restricted access in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative or sales representative) are granted access to Personal Information. Our employees must use passwords to gain access to Personal Information. Furthermore, all employees are regularly informed about our security and privacy practices. When new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to protect our users' and customers' Personal Information. Finally, we maintain reasonable technical and organizational measures to make sure that the servers on which we store Personal Information are kept in an access-restricted, physically secure, and monitored environment.

If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to privacy@infocus.com.

Enforcement

InFocus privacy practices are self-certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce Safe Harbor Program. The Safe Harbor agreement governs the data protection requirements for the personal information of European Union citizens, should InFocus transfer such information to the United States. For more information, please go to http://www.export.gov/safeharbor.

Changes to this Web Site Privacy Policy

If we decide to change this Privacy Policy, we will post the revised policy at this location, or at another location that is accessible via link from our homepages, so that users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use Personal Information in a manner that is substantially different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will seek to notify users by way of an email, and provide users with a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner.
