What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Fischer has created this privacy statement (“Statement”) in order to demonstrate our commitment to Client privacy. Privacy on the Fischer web sites (the “Sites”) is of great importance to us. Because we gather important information from our visitors and Clients, we have established this Statement as a means to communicate our information gathering and dissemination practices. We reserve the right to change this Statement and will provide notification of the change at least thirty (30) business days prior to the change taking effect.
Fischer Privacy Statement

At the time you express interest in attaining additional information, or when you register for the Service, we may ask for personal information, such as name, title, department name, fax number, or additional company information, such as annual revenues, number of employees, or industry. You may opt out of providing this information by not entering it when asked.

Once you become a Fischer Client, we require Clients that use the Services offered on our Sites (collectively, the “Service”) to provide contact information, such as their name, company name, address, phone number, and e-mail address, and financial qualification and billing information, such as billing name and address, and the number of users (or number of Student FTEs) within the organization that will be using the Service. We also ask for the name of each user, and may collect or be given additional information about the users such as email address, phone number, title, address, manager, department, etc. For some Services, Fischer Clients may provide personal information to Fischer through files or through connections with their systems and applications. Fischer may also ask users for “secret” information that is used to authenticate users who have forgotten their passwords. Clients can opt out of providing specific types of information and can prevent their users from entering specific types of information by not providing the information to Fischer and by contracting with Fischer Professional Services to modify the user interface to disallow the collection of specified information.

Fischer uses the information that we collect to set up the Service for individuals and their organizations. We may also use the information to contact Clients to further discuss Client interest in our company, the Service that we provide, and to send information regarding our company, such as promotions and events. Client email addresses and any personal Client information is secured and will not be distributed or shared with third parties.

Except as we explicitly state at the time we request information, or as provided for in the Fischer Master Subscription Agreement, we do not disclose to third parties the information provided. All financial and billing information that we collect through the Sites is used solely to check the qualifications of prospective Clients and to bill for the Service. This billing information is not used by Fischer for marketing or promotional purposes. Other third parties, such as content providers, may provide content on the Sites but they are not permitted to collect any information nor does Fischer share user information with these parties.

Clients of the Service use the Sites to host data and information (“Data”). Fischer will not review, share, distribute, print, or reference any such Data except as provided in the Fischer Master Subscription Agreement or as may be required by law. Individual records may at times be viewed or accessed only for the purpose of resolving a problem, support issue, or suspected violation of the Master Subscription Agreement, or as may be required by law. Clients and their Users are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of their user registration, password and “secret” information.

Fischer may also collect certain information from visitors to and Clients of the Sites, such as Internet addresses. This information is logged to help diagnose technical problems, and to administer our Sites in order to constantly improve the quality of the Service. We may also track and analyze non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from our visitors and Clients and provide such information to third parties.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

When you interact with the Fischer Sites we strive to make that experience easy and meaningful. When you come to our Sites, our Web server sends a cookie to your computer. Cookies are files that Web browsers place on a computer’s hard drive and are used to tell us whether Clients and visitors have visited the Sites previously.

Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to Fischer, either by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or registering for a Test Account or other promotion, you remain anonymous to Fischer.

Cookies come in two flavors: session and persistent based. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you’ve closed your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a unique identifier for your browser.
Session cookies
Fischer uses session cookies containing encrypted information to allow the system to uniquely identify you while you are logged in. This information allows Fischer to process your online transactions and requests. Session cookies help us make sure you are who you say you are after you’ve logged in and are required in order to use the Fischer Service.
Persistent cookies
Fischer uses persistent cookies, which only Fischer can read and use, to identify the fact that you are a Fischer Client or prior Fischer Sites visitor (whatever the case may be). We are especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies. For example, we do not store account passwords in persistent cookies. Users who disable their Web browsers’ ability to accept cookies will be able to browse our public Sites but will not be able to successfully use our Service.
Third-party cookies
We may from time to time engage third parties to track and analyze non-personally identifiable usage and volume statistical information from visitors to our Sites to help us administer our Sites and improve its quality.
