EFI also may collect certain information about your computer hardware and software in the form of cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on a user’s computer by a web server based on the permissions set in a user’s browser software. A cookie itself is not designed or intended to read any information from a user’s computer (other than the contents of the cookie). Rather, a cookie is an identifier used by the web site that originally placed it on your hard drive. This information may include; your IP address, browser type, operating system, domain name, access times, and referring web site addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of this site. You may adjust your web browsers to either alert you of the use of cookies or refuse to accept cookies entirely. Be aware that if you elect not to accept cookies, the Site may not function properly or permit access. We use your personal information for the following purposes: to ensure our site is relevant to your needs; to deliver services, such as newsletters, events or training that you request; to help us create and publish content most relevant to you; to alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information and other new services from Efficient Facilities International, if you so request; and/or to allow you access to limited-entry areas of our site, as appropriate. We will merge site-visitation data with anonymous demographic information for research purposes, and we may use this information in aggregate to provide more relevant content. When you submit personal information, Efficient Facilities International, Inc. will not share that information with third parties without your permission, other than for the limited exceptions already listed. It will only be used for the purposes stated above. While we work to safeguard the information we collect online, be aware that Internet security can be compromised. We have put in place a number of physical, electronic and managerial procedures to protect the confidentiality of the information we collect online. For example, we use firewalls and Secure Socket Layers and other encryption software to prevent unauthorized access, to maintain data security, and to ensure the correct use of information.
