Collection of your Personal Information

SQL Sentry explicitly asks when it needs information that personally identifies you during the submission of an inquiry, subscription to the SQL Sentry list, or the creation of an SQL Sentry account on the SQL Sentry Web Site. This information can include your e-mail address, name, address, telephone number, and credit card number, as applicable.

Use of your Personal Information

SQL Sentry uses your personal information to operate the SQL Sentry sites and to provide the services you have requested. The information is also used to communicate with you regarding your SQL Sentry account by sending out communications that are considered as essential to the operation of the service. The non-personal information is used to compile general demographic statistics which may be shared in the aggregate with SQL Sentry advertisers. We ask for your postal address so that we validate credit card information and send invoices by mail. We will only provide these service providers the personal information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

SQL Sentry uses your personal information to distribute two types of information:
  1) SQL Sentry Updates - account specific communications.
  2) SQL Sentry News - promotional and customer feedback information.

SQL Sentry Service Updates - Account Specific Communications

Account specific communications are distributed to the software administrator and include information that is essential for the SQL Sentry software to operate properly. It also includes any communications describing any changes or updates to the software or billing issues. Because account specific communications are essential to providing the most current information on SQL Sentry, these types of communications initiate when a customer signs-up for an SQL Sentry account and continues for all SQL Sentry customers with active accounts.

SQL Sentry News- Promotional and Customer Feedback

Promotional and customer feedback may include software updates, promotional offers, sweepstakes, contests, and/or customer surveys.

SQL Sentry may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on SQL Sentry or its service providers; or ,(b) protect and defend the rights or property of SQL Sentry or its service providers, the site or the users of SQL Sentry.

Except as otherwise described in this statement, SQL Sentry will not share any personal, company, or contact information with other companies without your prior consent.

SQL Sentry News, Promotional and Customer Feedback Information - You may opt-in or opt-out to receive these communications or edit your profile from the SQL Sentry Web Site. Each mailing also provides an unsubscribe link to opt-out and a profile edit link to change your personal information.

Security of your Personal Information

SQL Sentry secures the personally identifiable information you provide in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.

Security of the company and contact information that you provide as part of the SQL Sentry software and support service is controlled in a secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. SQL Sentry will not use your customer contact list or any other customer information for any other purposes than those intended with the service, nor will your customer information be shared with any other parties. SQL Sentry will not use your customer information for the purpose of sending unsolicited commercial e-mail.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on.

Use of Web Beacons

SQL Sentry pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons, sometimes called single-pixel gifs that allow SQL Sentry to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. SQL Sentry may include web beacons in e-mail messages in order to count how many messages have been opened and acted upon. Web beacons are not used to access personally identifiable information through SQL Sentry services; they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about the SQL Sentry Web site and email usage distributed from the SQL Sentry system. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides.
