What information does Somerset collect and how is it used?
We may collect “non-personal information”, which is information in a format that does not identify you as an individual customer. Like many other websites, we automatically collect certain non-personal information. Examples include the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you access the website, the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to the website, the operating system you are using, the sections of the website you visit, the website pages read and images viewed, and any content you download from the website. We may use non-personal information collected to compile tracking information reports regarding website user demographics, website traffic patterns, and website purchases, and then provide those reports to advertisers and others. None of the tracking information in the reports can be connected to the identities or other personal information of individual users. We may also link tracking information with information voluntarily provided by website users. Our websites may use “cookies”, a technology that installs a small amount of information on a website user’s computer to permit the website to recognize future visits using that computer. Cookies enhance the convenience and use of the website. For example, the information provided through cookies is used to recognize you as a previous user of the website (so you do not have to enter your information every time), to offer personalized web page content and information for your use, to track your activity at the website, to respond to your needs, and to otherwise facilitate your website experience. You may choose to decline cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your use of the website and your ability to access certain features of the website.
Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to other websites or Internet resources. When you click on one of those links you are contacting another website or Internet resource. Somerset has no responsibility or liability for or control over those other websites or Internet resources or their collection, use and disclosure of your personal information. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of those other sites to learn how they collect and use information about you.
Does Somerset disclose the information it collects?
Somerset does not sell the information it collects in relation to you. However, we may share our collected information with third parties acting on our behalf or as permitted or required by law.
Disclosure to service providers
Somerset may share our collected information with certain service providers in order to provide and design products and services and to verify and validate information.
Somerset may disclose collected information as permitted or required by law; for example: (i) to a government institution or other person or entity that has asserted its lawful authority to obtain the information; (ii) where we have reasonable grounds to believe the information could be useful in the investigation of unlawful activity; (iii) to comply with a subpoena or warrant or an order made by a court, person or entity with jurisdiction to compel the production of information; (iv) to comply with court rules regarding the production of records and information; and (v) to our legal counsel.
How does Somerset protect collected information?
The security of our collected information is a high priority for Somerset. We maintain appropriate safeguards and current security standards, whether recorded on paper or captured electronically, against unauthorized access, disclosure, or misuse. Although we cannot take responsibility for any theft, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, loss, alteration or destruction of data by a third party, we take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.
