We may receive certain data automatically collected by our software, for example: IP address, cookies data, performance specifications of the user’s hardware and software, date and time of access to the Website, the URL of the page requested.

Please do not post or add sensitive and other personal information that you would not want to be publicly available.\n\n

If you use our Services from a mobile device, that device will send us data about your location based on your phone settings.

Cookies and other Technologies
Disclosure of the Personal Information
\nThe protection of the personal information and your privacy is important to us. We do not disclose the personal information to any third parties except for:
\n* our Service Providers engaged by us to perform some functions on our behalf;
\n* legal and regulatory authorities;
\n* our employees.
\nIn performing our Services, we engage Service Providers to perform some functions on our behalf, including, but not limited to, data entry, database management, promotions, products and services alerts, membership authentication and verification services, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links, and providing user service (the “Service Providers”). These Service Providers are under a duty of confidentiality to us and are only permitted to use the personal information in connection with their functions and not for their own purposes.
\nWe may share your personal information with law enforcement, data protection authorities when we are required to do so by law or compelled by court order or other legal procedure. We may disclose the personal information to a third-party in order to protect, establish, or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims, or when we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, threats to our property, or violations of applicable law.
\nPersonal information of our users is available and accessible by our employees who provide services to you or do their jobs.
User’s Ability to Edit Personal Information
\nYou may access your personal information held by us to correct, update and remove inaccurate or incorrect data. You have the following rights:\n\n
- delete some or all personal information that we held about you;\n
- change or correct your personal information that we held about you;\n

\nWe use certain technologies to ensure the confidentiality of your personal information and to secure your sensitive data. SIGEN uses several security measures, including two-factor authentication, additional security code, data encryption as well as the Secure Socket Layer protocol (SSL) which is industry-leading technology to ensure that your information is fully encrypted.
\nHowever, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is completely secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.\n
\nYou are responsible for maintaining the accuracy and completeness of your personal information. You shall inform us in relation to any changes to your personal information.\n\n
\nWe retain your personal information while your account is in existence or for as long as it is necessary or your user account is active or as needed to provide you with the Services on the Website. If you no longer want us to use your personal information to provide you with the Services, you may close your account. However, we may retain and use your personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations and resolve disputes.\n\n

Cross-Border Data Transfers
\nWe process information both inside and outside of Designated Countries and rely on legally-provided mechanisms to lawfully transfer information across borders. Countries where we process data may have laws which are different, and potentially not as protective, as the laws of your own country.
