Why we collect personal information

We collect your personal information because it helps us deliver a superior level of customer service. It enables us to give you convenient access to our products and services and focus on the business goals of greatest interest to you. In addition, your personal information helps us keep you informed on the latest technology announcements, software updates, special offers, and events that you might like to hear about.

If you do not want The PHP Kemist to keep you up to date on non-project related subjects such as technology news, software updates and the latest information on products and services login to and update your personal contact information and preferences.

What information we collect and how we may use it

There are a number of situations in which your personal information may help us give you better products. For example:

  • We may ask for your personal information when you’re discussing a service issue on the phone with an associate, downloading a software update, registering for a seminar, participating in an Online survey, registering your products, or purchasing a product.
  • When you interact with The PHP Kemist, we may collect personal information relevant to a development project, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and contact preferences; and information relating to a support or service issue.
  • We also collect information for market research purposes — such as your current method of traffic tracking — to gain a better understanding of our customers and thus provide more informative feedback.
  • We collect information regarding customer requirements and activities on the web; your own site and websites in general. This helps us to determine how best to assist your business and to understand which aspects of your business would benefit most from improvement.
  • We may use personal information for statistical purposes as well as for auditing, research, and marketing analysis to improve The PHP Kemist’s products.

Your PHP Kemist User ID and related information

The The PHP Kemist website allows you to login using a “PHP Kemist User ID” assigned by and upon specific request. This convenient service saves you time and allows for easier use of our client login services. Here’s how it works: We create a personal profile for you — including your name, phone number, email address, and in some cases your mailing address or an Instant Messaging User ID — and choose a password and password hint for security. The system saves your information and assigns you a Project Directory on the PHP Kemist server — in most cases named as your primary domain name. You may login to your account any time of day or night to access a current work status, update your personal or company profile, upload media for project integration, and to request changes and revisions. All you need to do is enter your PHP Kemist User ID and Password; the system looks up your information and directs you to your account. In addition, if you update the information associated with your PHP Kemist User ID it will be available for all your transactions with all The PHP Kemist departments.

Blogs, community boards, and chatrooms

The PHP Kemist operates multiple blogs, community boards, and chatrooms. Creating a client login profile may enable and entitle you to access and edit some part or subsection of a blog, community board and/or chatroom. Published information to any of these service websites may be exposed or published to the public or other members of the website.

Publicly displayed information is public

If you use a bulletin board or chatroom on a The PHP Kemist website you should be aware that any information you share is possibly visible to other users, perhaps to the public. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums might be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. The PHP Kemist is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums. For example, if you choose to make information, which was previously non-public, available by enabling certain user features, The PHP Kemist may inadvertantly collect that information from your interaction and that information may become publicly available, especially as a result of search engine optimization automation processes. If your personal information should become disclosed publicly, contact The PHP Kemist immediately with the specific offending URL with a detailed message telling us what requires correction. The PHP Kemist will take appropriate mesaures to protect your information, but does not take responsibility for information you cause to become public whether by intent or accident.

When we disclose your information

The PHP Kemist takes your privacy very seriously. The PHP Kemist does not sell or rent your contact information to other marketers.

Within the The PHP Kemist group

To help us provide superior service, your personal information may be shared with legal entities within the The PHP Kemist group globally who will take steps to safeguard it in accordance with The PHP Kemist’s privacy policy.

Our service providers, vendors, and strategic partners

There are also times when it may be advantageous for The PHP Kemist to make certain personal information about you available to companies that The PHP Kemist has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for The PHP Kemist to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, extend credit, fulfill customer orders, deliver products to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are also obligated to protect your personal information in accordance with The PHP Kemist’s policies, except if we inform you otherwise at the time of collection. For example, when you purchase website development, you authorize The PHP Kemist and its associates to exchange the information that you provide during the web hosting purchase process to carry out hosting setup and launch. If you are approved for service, your account will be governed by The PHP Kemist and its carrier’s respective privacy policies. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to purchase products, have products delivered to you, receive customer service, provide us feedback to improve our products and services, or access certain services, offers, and content on the The PHP Kemist website.

At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.

How we protect your personal information

The PHP Kemist takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

You can help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet.

Cookies and other technologies

As is standard practice on many corporate websites, The PHP Kemist’s website uses “Cookies & Sessions” and other technologies to help us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how much time they spend there. We also use Cookies & Sessions and other technologies to make sure that our Online advertising is bringing customers to our products and services, such as marketing services and promotions.

In some of our email messages we use a “Click-Through URL” associated with tracking scripts on the The PHP Kemist website. When customers view campaign emails and click one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email. In addition we use pixel tags — tiny graphic images — to tell us what parts of our website customers have visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our site. Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read. And they tell us whether emails have been opened to ensure that we’re sending only messages that are of interest to our customers. We store all of this information in a secure database located in Salt Lake City, Utah, in the United States.
