How TechNova handles privacy internally
  • Our commitment to security
    We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.
  • General policies
    We have implemented technology and security policies, rules, and other measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction, and accidental loss. We also protect your information by requiring that all our employees and others who have access to or are associated with the processing of your data respect your confidentiality.
    Reliable verification of user identity is called authentication. TechNova uses both passwords and usernames to authenticate users.
  • Third parties
    In addition to aggregate information, we may share some kinds of information with third parties as described below.

    • Companies and people who work for us: Because we are a large company, we contract with other companies and individuals to perform business support functions on our behalf. For example, we may hire companies to analyze data, provide marketing assistance, provide customer service or conduct customer survey. In order to perform their jobs, these other companies may have limited access to some of the personal information we maintain about our users. We use our best efforts to limit other companies' use of personally identifiable information.

    • Co-branded and Partner Pages: We may share information with partner companies who jointly present special offers or promotions on co-branded pages within our site. You will be notified of this sharing when you are asked to furnish personal data on such a page. The partner's use of any information you submit will be governed by the partner's own privacy notice, which you can review before submitting your information.

    • Promotional and informational offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of customers. To accomplish this we may use third parties working on behalf of TechNova.

    • Business transfers: If we transfer a business unit (such as a subsidiary) or an asset (such as a Web site) to another company, we will require it to honour the terms of this Privacy Policy. Although we do not currently anticipate a change in our corporate status, in the event of a merger or acquisition of the company or a substantial portion of its assets, TechNova may disclose, transfer or sell personal information collected online to the surviving or acquiring party, respectively.
      Personal information collected online will remain subject to promises made in this Online Privacy Policy.
    • Legal requirements: We may release account and other personal information when we believe release is required to comply with law. When required by law, TechNova will share information with government agencies.
