6. Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy does not pertain to and Celerity is not responsible for the privacy practices of any third party websites to which this Website hyperlinks.

A. Cookies.

By using this Website, you acknowledge and agree that Celerity may collect information about you, for instance, by placing a "cookie" on your computer.  Celerity uses this said information for internal purposes such as to administer this Website, improve this Website, and help Celerity understand how this Website is being used including the demographics and “clickstreams” of its visitors.  Our "cookies" do not contain any personal identification information. You are always free to decline cookies if your browser permits.

B. Web Beacons/Web Bugs.

This Website (and other websites to which you may link to through this Website) may employ “web beacon” technologies.  A web beacon (also known as a “web bug”) is generally an anonymous notice of a visit to a website used to keep track of your navigation through a single website or a series of websites.  Web beacons can be used in conjunction with cookies to gain an understanding of how users navigate through a website, e.g., to determine what portions of a website are viewed the most and to then help us provide information tailored to your needs.  Unlike cookies which can usually be declined as discussed above, web beacon technologies can usually still detect anonymous visits if cookies are declined.  However, since web beacons are generally used in association with cookies if you disable or turn off the use of cookies, any information generated by a web beacon generally cannot be associated with other anonymous information or personally-identifiable information and are disregarded.

C. Personally Identifiable Information.

This Website is designed so that you may generally browse it without providing any personally identifiable information.  Certain areas of the Website, however, may require or allow the voluntarily submission of personally identifiable information, e.g., registration to receive publications.  Celerity uses your personally identifiable information for the purposes for which it was submitted by you to Celerity, including for Celerity to send you publications and invitations that may be of interest to you.  Except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy, Celerity does not share your personally identifiable information with third parties.  Celerity will use reasonable efforts to remove your personally identifiable information from our then current Website at any time upon your written request to requests@celerity.com.

D. Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information.

Celerity may share personally identifiable information with third parties, including affiliated firms and third parties performing communications, database, event management, hosting, mailing, marketing and other services for or on behalf of Celerity.  You should also be aware that Celerity cannot fully ensure that your personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third parties.  For instance, Celerity may be legally obligated to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may circumvent Celerity’s security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or an error may occur in the administration of this Website.  In the unlikely event that Celerity needs to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, Celerity may, and you authorize Celerity to, disclose any information about you to government officials as permitted by applicable law.
