This site is owned and operated by Paragon D&E
Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us.
This is a free content site. We do not require any information from you (not even a user name or password). We do not sell any information from our site to any outside party. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
Gathering of the Information
Paragon D&E gathers two types of information about users:
» Information users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, to participate in our message boards, forums or blogs, and to communicate with us.
» Information Paragon D&E gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our site. As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL, Comcast, AT&T, etc.), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.), the device/OS you used to visit our site (Windows, Mac OS, mobile phone, tablet, etc.), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site. This information allows us to better tailor our content to our viewer’s needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does Paragon D&E divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
Paragon D&E does not knowingly collect or maintain any personal information from children under the age of 13. In addition, no part of our site is designed with the purpose of attracting any person under age 13.
As stated above, we may use information users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to communicate with us in general or with respect to a specific job/project opportunity. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. Paragon D&E never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners. If anything comes to your attention which could potentially be a violation of this policy, please let us know immediately so that we can investigate it and try to correct it.
We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. Tracking terms entered in the Search function is one of many measures to learn what interests our users.
Paragon D&E creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns and may share those reports with advertisers, sponsors and partners. This allows our advertisers to advertise more effectively, and our users to receive advertisements pertinent to their needs. Because we don’t track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their ad. We will not disclose information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
Sharing of the Information
Paragon D&E uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our advertisers better understand our audience’s demographics. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
Paragon D&E operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
» Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters.
» Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users
