FORTRESS INFORMATION SECURITY PRIVACY POLICY

Last Updated: April 1, 2021

Fortress Information Security LLC and its subsidiaries, divisions, and affiliates (“Fortress”) recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of the personal information you provide to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Privacy Policy (“Policy”) in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate, disclose, and otherwise manage the personal information you entrust to us by engaging our services on the website (“Site”) and social media pages (collectively the “Service”). Please note that the Policy applies only to our online information-gathering and dissemination practices in connection with the Services and does not apply to any of our practices conducted on other online platforms, offline, or associated with other products or services offered by Fortress. We have separate privacy policies for information collected by other means or from other sources, such as our privacy policies for information we receive or exchange with our clients associated with our work for our clients.
Fortress reserves the right to change its Privacy Policy at its sole discretion and at any time. Fortress will notify you of any changes by posting a revised Policy on its Site. By using or receiving the Services, you agree and consent to the Policy then in effect.
This Policy is written in the English language. We do not guarantee the accuracy of any translated versions of this Policy. To the extent that any translated versions of this Policy conflict with the English language version, the English language version of this Policy shall control.

1. Collection of Personal Information

Fortress may collect personal data from you directly when you interact with our Service, contact us, use our services, create an account, subscribe, share reviews, or sign up to receive offers or emails from us.

We may also receive personal data about you indirectly from our third-party affiliates or partners and from marketing companies that provide us with such information as a part of their relationship with us. We may combine this with data that we already have collected about you. Such collected data could include contact details (such as email address) and previous purchase history or interests.

Finally, we may collect certain information about you automatically through our use of cookies and similar technologies.

The Services, including this Site, are not targeted for use by children. Fortress will never knowingly request or collect personal information from any child. If you are under eighteen years old, please do not provide your information on our Site. Upon notification that a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete the child’s personally identifiable information from our records.

Our information processing activities include conducting our business, customer communications and support, user verification, quality management services, Site maintenance and improvements, servicing our clients, and complying with legal requirements. Where applicable, if Fortress intends to further process your personal information for a purpose other than that for which the personal information was initially collected, Fortress shall, prior to such processing, provide you with any relevant information on such additional purpose, and, to the extent required by applicable law, obtain your consent for this.

3. Disclosure of Personal Information

Fortress does not trade, rent, or sell personal information that you provide to us via the Service to third parties.

We may share information with third parties who perform services and functions on our behalf to support our interactions with you. These third parties may assist with technical operation of our Site, provide analytics, or provide customer service. We may also share non-identifying information, such as aggregate statistics or usage information, with third parties for marketing, advertising, research, analytics, customer service, or similar purposes.

In connection with your use of the Site, you may be asked to opt-in to receive informational or marketing offers, or to otherwise consent to the sharing of your information with a third party, including social networking sites such as Facebook Instagram, or Twitter. If you agree to have your personal information shared with a third party, your personal information will be disclosed to the third party and will be subject to the privacy policy and business practices of that third party.

We may transfer and disclose information, including your personal information, usage information and device identifier, (including IP address), to third parties to comply with a legal obligation; when we believe in good faith that the law requires it; at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation; to conduct information security research or assessments; to verify or enforce our agreements, terms of use, or other applicable policies; to respond to an emergency; or otherwise to protect the rights, property, safety, or security of third parties, visitors to our Site, or the public.
