Collection of your Personal Information

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Pool Xpert. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Website addresses. This information is used by Pool Xpert for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Pool Xpert Website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Pool Xpert public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Pool Xpert does not read any of your private online communications.
Pool Xpert encourages you to review the privacy statements of Websites you choose to link to from Pool Xpert so that you can understand how those Websites collect, use and share your information. Pool Xpert is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Websites outside of the Pool Xpert Website.
Use of your Personal Information
Pool Xpert collects and uses your personal information to operate the Pool Xpert Website and deliver the services you have requested. Pool Xpert also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Pool Xpert and its affiliates. Pool Xpert may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered, and we will ask you for your consent in this regard.
Pool Xpert does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Pool Xpert may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Pool Xpert may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Pool Xpert, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Pool Xpert does not use or disclose your personal information, without your explicit consent.
Pool Xpert keeps track of the Websites and pages our customers visit within Pool Xpert, in order to determine what Pool Xpert services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Pool Xpert to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Pool Xpert Websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only 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 Pool Xpert or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Pool Xpert; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Pool Xpert, or the public.
The Pool Xpert Website use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
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. For example, if you personalize Pool Xpert pages, or register with Pool Xpert site or services, a cookie helps Pool Xpert to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Pool Xpert Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Pool Xpert features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Pool Xpert services or Web sites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
Pool Xpert secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Pool Xpert secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Statement
Pool Xpert will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Pool Xpert encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Pool Xpert is protecting your information.
Pool Xpert welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that Pool Xpert has not adhered to this Statement, please contact Pool Xpert at email@example.com We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
