Collection of personal information
You provide most of the data ITsavvy collects. ITsavvy collects and uses personal information you provide (name, email address, phone number, etc.) in various ways including the following to understand your needs and interests and to serve you better.
For example, when you order products or services, apply for instant credit, request information, subscribe to marketing or support materials, register yourself, or apply for a job at ITsavvy, we will ask you to provide personal information to complete these transactions. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include name, address, ZIP code, telephone number, fax number, email address, user IDs and passwords, company name, billing and transaction information, credit card information, product and service preferences, contact preferences, educational and employment background, and job interest data. If you apply for instant credit, we will ask you to provide additional personal information such as salary, Social Security number and banking information. This information will be used by our financial services providers in determining whether to extend you credit.
In addition to the information you provide, ITsavvy may also collect information during your visit to a ITsavvy web site through automatic data collection tools, which include web beacons, cookies, embedded web links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools. These tools collect certain standard information that your browser sends to our web site such as your browser type and language, access times, and the address of the web site from which you arrived at a ITsavvy web site. They may also collect information about your Internet Protocol (IP) address, clickstream behavior (i.e. the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with ITsavvy’s web site) and product information. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers use IP addresses to communicate on the Internet, allowing users to browse and shop. ITsavvy also uses some of these automatic data collection tools in connection with certain emails sent from ITsavvy and therefore may collect information using these tools when you open the email or click on a link contained in the email.
How ITsavvy uses automatic data collection tools:
Cookies are typically classified as either “session” cookies or “persistent” cookies.
Some ITsavvy and third-party web pages and HTML-formatted email use web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about your web site usage and your interaction with email. A web beacon is an electronic image, called a single-pixel (1×1) or clear GIF. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date of a page viewed, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. You may be able to disable Web beacons in email messages by suppressing the images in the message you receive. However, suppressing the images in the message may not always disable a web beacon or other automatic data collection tools in the email message. For more information about this, please refer to the information provided by your email software or service provider.
If you choose to receive marketing emails or newsletters from ITsavvy, we may automatically collect whether you’ve opened those messages and whether you’ve clicked on links contained within those messages.
Embedded Web links
Emails from ITsavvy use links designed to lead you to a relevant area on the web, after redirection through ITsavvy or our service provider’s servers. The redirection system allows ITsavvy to change the destination URL of these links, if necessary, and to determine the effectiveness of our marketing initiatives. It also allows ITsavvy to determine whether you have clicked a link in an email, and this information collected from your interaction with emails may be connected to your personal identity. If you do not want ITsavvy to collect information about the links that you click, you can change your choice about receiving communications from ITsavvy or choose not to click links in an email that ITsavvy sends.
ITsavvy also collects information from commercially available sources that it deems credible. Such information may include your name, address, email address and demographic data. The information ITsavvy collects from its commercial sources may be used along with the information ITsavvy collects when you visit ITsavvy’s web site.
How we use your information
The information ITsavvy collects to understand your needs and interests helps ITsavvy deliver a consistent and personalized experience. For example, ITsavvy may use your information to:
We will give you the opportunity to choose your privacy preferences regarding the communications we send (see “Your choices and selecting your privacy preferences” below).

How we share your information
ITsavvy will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others.
We may need to share your personal information with certain third parties such as our agents, service providers and other representatives acting on our behalf for limited purposes. For example, we may share personal information with third parties to perform services on our behalf such as:
The third parties with whom we conduct business are only authorized to use your information to perform the service for which they were hired. As part of our agreement with them, they are required to follow the privacy guidelines we provide them and to take reasonable measures to ensure your personal information is secure.
From time to time, we may be required to share personal information in response to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We may share certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property and safety of others and ourselves. We may also transfer personal information in the event of a corporate sale, merger, acquisition, dissolution or similar event.
ITsavvy does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 and does not target its web site to children under 13. We encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities and interests.

Access to and accuracy of your information
ITsavvy strives to keep your personal information accurately recorded. We have implemented technology, management processes and policies to help maintain data accuracy. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as, but not limited to, requiring a password and user ID, before granting access to your data.
Keeping your information secure
ITsavvy takes seriously the trust you place in us. ITsavvy uses industry-standard physical, technical and administrative procedures to protect against unauthorized access, use or disclosure of your personal information, and to maintain data accuracy.
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. SSL encryption is designed to make the information unreadable by anyone but us.
Credit card numbers are used only for processing payments and are not used for other purposes. As part of real-time payment processing, ITsavvy subscribes to a fraud management service. This service gives you and ITsavvy an extra level of security to guard against credit card fraud and to protect your financial data.
We keep the information we collect from you as long as we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements).
