Because customers entrust Astyra with important information/data, 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.
We require customers who register to use the services (“Services”) to give us 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 within the organization that will be using the Services. Astyra uses the information that we collect to set up Services for individuals and their organizations. We may also use the information to contact customers to further discuss customer interest in our company, the Services that we provide, and to send information regarding our company or partners, such as promotions and events.
Of course, customers are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of their user registration and password. Astyra may also collect certain information from customers of the Site, such as Internet addresses. This information is logged to help diagnose technical problems, and to administer our Site in order to constantly improve the quality of the Service. Astyra may also ask visitors, who register for the Astyra Community, to provide certain information, such as email addresses to use and receive content from the site. Astyra will provide these visitors with the ability to opt-in or opt-out of future communications from the company. Astyra will not disclose the collected information to third parties without the permission of the visitor. We may also track and analyze non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from our visitors and customers and provide such information to third parties.
When you interact with Astyra we strive to make that experience easy and meaningful. When you log on to Astyra, 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 customers have used the Service previously. Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser.
There are two types of Cookies: 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.

Astyra uses session cookies containing encrypted information to allow the system to uniquely identify you while you are logged in. This information allows Astyra to process your 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 Astyra application. Astyra uses persistent cookies, that only Astyra can read and use, to identify the fact that you are a Astyra customer or a visitor, who has registered for the Astyra Community or to receive certain types of content. We are especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies. For example, we do not store account numbers or passwords in persistent cookies.
