Confidentiality & Privacy
Due to the nature of our work, we consider all information as confidential, whether or not it is identified as such. Confidentiality is strictly maintained throughout the search process and at all times. We do not even disclose the names of our clients, though our list of regular clients would be a heavy endorsement of the services we provide. If clients prefer to have a signed confidentiality agreement, we will be happy to put one in place – either our own standard confidentiality agreement, or one using the client’s own legal terminology, if preferred.
This web site is operated by Technology & Patent Research International. The materials on the web site are for informational purposes only and may also provide links to third party web sites. We do not make any representations regarding these third party sites and we are not responsible for their confidentiality or privacy policies.
We do not collect any personally identifiable information unless you voluntarily provide it to us, e.g. by subscribing to an e-mail alert service, by registering to download certain materials, or by sending us a comment or a request for information. Any personally identifiable information that you provide to us will be maintained on a secure server. If you have provided any personal information to us through this web site, you may request that your name be removed from our database at any time. We never share your information with anyone.
We may use automated tracking mechanisms to track a visitor’s use of our web site so that we can enhance our services. This will tell us, for example, which areas of a site are visited most frequently and how long visitors remain on the site or in particular areas. This information is provided to us anonymously and in the aggregate. We do not combine this anonymous data with any personal information.
