Your 5C-Group.com membership is a free web-based service from 5C Group. We have designed this innovative service with both its usefulness and your privacy in mind. This policy describes the types of personal information we may collect and how we use it to provide our service to you.

By registering to 5C Group, you agree to the collection and use of your personal information as described in this policy. If we make any significant changes to this policy, we will notify you by posting a notice of such changes on the 5C Group login page.

You should know:

We collect limited account information and store and maintain your account data on our secure servers. We will never rent, sell or share information that personally identifies you for marketing purposes without your express permission. We reserve the right to serve highly relevant ads and other information as part of the service. You can update your account information and preferences at any time.

To comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, at this time 5C Group is only available to users who are at least 13 years old. If you are under 13, please do not use the 5C-Group.com service.

What types of personal information do we collect and how do we use it?

Account information. When you register with 5C Group, we will request some personal information, including your first and last name, your company name, a user name and a password to create your account. Your password will be maintained on our system in an encrypted form. All the information is stored and maintained on secure servers where 5C Group employees do not access the content unless you specifically request them to do so (for example, if you are having technical difficulties accessing your account) or if required by law, to maintain our system, or to protect 5C Group or the public.

We also may collect information about how often you log in and other information related to your registration and use of 5C-Group.com. Information displayed or clicked when logged-on (including UI elements, ads, links, and other information) is also recorded. We use this information internally to deliver the best possible service to you, such as improving the 5C-Group.com user interface, preventing fraud within our advertising system, and better targeting related information.

Google will never sell, rent or share your personal information, with any third parties for marketing purposes without your express permission.

Log information.

Log information. When you use your 5C-Group.com account, we collect certain information (the same information that most web sites log when they are accessed). This information usually includes the browser type you used, your Internet Protocol address, and the date and time of day. In addition, we log the URL of the last site you visited.

As a basic matter, we need this information to help us provide our services to you. For example, we need to validate your identity in order to maintain the security of your information. We also need to know what Internet Protocol address your query came from so we can send the appropriate pages back to you.

In addition, we log this information for internal business purposes. For example, this log information helps us determine how well our services are working so we can continually improve the quality of 5C-Group.com. The log information is also important for security, audit, quality improvement, and other internal business purposes.

For future inclusion: How we deliver targeted content to you. We never share your personally identifying information with any advertiser as part of this service, unless you specifically ask us to do so. When you are logged into to 5C-Group.com , 5C Group reserves the possibility of displaying targeted ads and other relevant information.
Advertisers receive a record of the total number of impressions and clicks for each ad. They do not receive any personal information about the person who viewed the ad. If you click on an ad, 5C Group will send a referring URL to the advertiser's site identifying that you are visiting from 5C-Group.com. 5C Group does not send personally identifying information to advertisers with the referring URL. Once you are on the advertiser's site, however, the advertiser may collect personal information about you. 5C Group does not control or take responsibility for the privacy policies of other sites.

5C Group may send you information related to your 5C-Group.com account or other 5C Group services. Because we believe such information is important, you will not be given the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them.

When we may disclose your personal information.

We do not disclose your personally identifying information to third parties unless we believe we are required to do so by law or have a good faith belief that such access, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (b) enforce the 5C-Group.com Terms of Use, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (d) respond to user support requests, or (e) protect the rights, property or safety of 5C Group, its users and the public.

Transfer of information.

Personal information collected by 5C Group may be stored and processed in Belgium or any other country in which 5C Group or its agents maintain facilities. By logging on to 5C-Group.com site you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

We reserve the right to transfer your personal information in the event of a transfer of ownership of 5C-Group.com, such as acquisition by or merger with another company. In such an event, 5C Group will notify you before information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Updating your information.

You can change your 5C-Group.com account settings at any time in the "Profile" section of the member login.
You can terminate your account at any time, by sending an email with your username to info@5C-Group.com. We typically deactivate accounts within two business days of such requests. You should be aware, however, that residual copies of information may remain stored on our systems even after the deletion of information or the termination of your account.

How does 5C Group safeguard your information?

We pay close attention to security. First, we focus significant time and resources to ensure that user accounts and information are not misused by 5C Group employees. A limited set of employees are authorized to access user accounts, they are educated about the importance of maintaining user privacy, and their access to user accounts is recorded. Our employees are also contractually required to access accounts and log data only for quality, security, audit, and other internal business purposes. Second, we implement technology and procedures to try to make sure that external parties cannot access or modify users' personal information on our servers. These technologies and procedures include industry standard methods as well as our own proprietary methods.

We hope to welcome you as a valued member of the 5C Group community.
