Alite International’s Privacy and Cookies Policy

Your privacy on alite-international.com

This website is administered by Alite International AB (Alite). The primary purpose of alite-international.com is to be a dynamic resource and business tool to help you create your future. We want you to feel secure when visiting our site and we are committed to maintaining your privacy when doing so.

The following provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit.

What information do we gather?

Information on alite-international.com is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly (for example, through our site’s technology); and (2) directly (for example, when you provide information on various pages of alite-international.com).

One example of information we collect indirectly is through our Internet access logs. When you access alite-international.com, your Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our Internet access logs.

We collect information directly from you in a number of ways, some of which we describe in this Privacy Statement. One way is through the use of cookies. Cookies are small files of information that save and retrieve information about your visit to alite-international.com – for example, how you entered our site, how you navigated through the site, and what information was of interest to you. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience. The cookies we use identify you merely as a number. If you are uncomfortable regarding the use of cookies, please keep in mind you can disable cookies on your computer by changing the settings in preferences or options menu in your browser.

We also collect information when you voluntarily submit it to us. Throughout our site, we provide the opportunity to register for an event or conference, order a white paper, or participate in an online survey. When we collect this type of information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for information and how this information will be used. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.

How do we use this information?

We analyse it to determine what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it, and eventually, to determine how we can tailor alite-international.com to make it more effective. We may also use data for other purposes, which we would describe to you at the point that we collect the information.

Will we share this with outside parties?

As a global organisation, data we collect may be transferred internationally throughout Alite’s worldwide organisation. We will not sell individual information and will share it only with our advisors. There will be other times when we need to share information, for example, in the case of an event where we need to provide our caterer with meal preference information. But again, before you submit any information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for specific information and it is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.

What about sensitive personal data?

We do not generally seek to collect sensitive personal data through this site. If we do seek to collect such data, we will ask you to consent to our proposed uses of the data. We may also collect some sensitive personal data incidentally. By providing us with unsolicited sensitive personal data, you consent to our using the data subject to applicable law as described in this Privacy Statement. The references to "sensitive personal data" are to the various categories of personal data identified by European and other data privacy laws as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances the need to obtain explicit consent. These categories comprise personal identity numbers, personal data about personality and private life, racial or ethnic origin, nationality, political opinions, membership of political parties or movements, religious, philosophical or other similar beliefs, membership of a trade union or profession or trade association, physical or mental health, genetic code, addictions, sexual life, property matters or criminal record (including information about suspected criminal activities).

Do we give you access to your information?

You are entitled to know whether we hold information about you and, if we do, to have access to that information and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate. You can do this by sending us an e-mail.

What about data security?

We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data on alite-international.com. You should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended.

That’s it in a nutshell. The short of it is that we are interested in maintaining your privacy and creating a valuable resource for you to use. If you have any questions now or during your visit, please contact us.

Unless otherwise stated, the contents of this site including, but not limited to, the text and images contained herein and their arrangement are the property of Alite. All trademarks used or referred to in this website are the property of their respective owners.

Nothing contained in this site shall be construed as conferring by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to any copyright, patent, trademark or other proprietary interest of Alite or any third party. This site and the content provided in this site, including, but not limited to, graphic images, audio, video, html code, buttons, and text, may not be copied, reproduced, republished, uploaded, posted, transmitted, or distributed in any way, without the prior written consent of Alite, except that you may download, display, and print one copy of the materials on any single computer solely for your personal, non-commercial use, provided that you do not modify the material in any way and you keep intact all copyright, trademark, and other proprietary notices.

The information provided on this site is free of charge and for informational purposes only and does not create a business or professional services relationship between you and Alite. Links on this site may lead to services or sites not operated by Alite. No judgment or warranty is made with respect to such other services or sites and Alite takes no responsibility for such other sites or services. A link to another site or service is not an endorsement of that site or service. Any use you make of the information provided on this site, or any site or service linked to by this site, is at your own risk.

This site and its contents are provided "as is" and Alite makes no representation or warranty of any kind with respect to this site or any site or service accessible through this site. Alite expressly disclaims all express and implied warranties including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. In no event will Alite be liable to any party for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, consequential, or other damages (including, but not limited to, lost profits, business interruption, loss of programs or data) without regard to the form of action and whether in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or otherwise, arising out of or in connection with this site, any content on or accessed through this site or any site service linked to, or any copying, displaying, or use thereof.

You are responsible for complying with the laws of the jurisdiction from which you are accessing this site and you agree that you will not access or use the information on this site in violation of such laws. Unless expressly stated otherwise herein, any information submitted by you through this site shall be deemed non-confidential and non-proprietary. You represent that you have the lawful right to submit such information and agree that you will not submit any information unless you are legally entitled to do so. Because of the open nature of the Internet, we recommend that you not submit information you consider confidential.

Alite does not accept unauthorized idea submissions outside of established business relationships. To protect the interests of our current clients and ourselves, we must treat the issue of such submissions with great care. Importantly, without a clear business relationship, Alite cannot and does not treat any such submissions in confidence. Accordingly, please do not communicate unauthorized idea submissions to Alite through this website. Any ideas disclosed to Alite outside a pre-existing and documented confidential business relationship are not confidential and Alite may therefore develop, use and freely disclose or publish similar ideas without compensating you or accounting to you. Alite will make every reasonable effort to return or destroy any unauthorized idea submissions without detailed review of them. However, if a review is necessary in Alite’s sole discretion, it will be with the understanding that Alite assumes no obligation to protect the confidentiality of your idea or compensate you for its disclosure or use. By submitting an idea or other detailed submission to Alite through this website, you agree to be bound by the terms of this stated policy.
