LEGAL NOTICES

Collection and Use of Personally Identifiable Information

ProNex is a global IT utility provider that provides consulting, hosting, networking and application services.

ProNex respects the privacy of every individual who visits this website, provides personal information to us via interactive features of this website, or sends e-mails to ProNex via this website. This privacy policy outlines the information ProNex will collect via this website and how ProNex will use that information. This statement will also instruct you on what to do if you do not want your personal information collected or shared when you visit this website or send us e-mails via this website. This privacy statement does not cover our use of information collected through any other means.

Personally Identifiable Information We Collect

The information ProNex obtains from you is generally necessary or useful for ProNex to provide the services or information you have requested and to design new services for your future use, and is provided directly by you in response to ProNex’ request for the information. In connection with the services ProNex provides, ProNex may ask you to provide your name, physical address, zip code, phone number, e-mail address, and services received or requested. Your submission of such information on-line is deemed your consent to ProNex’ use of the information as contemplated in this privacy policy.

How We Use the Information

Generally, ProNex uses the information, and other information ProNex may have about you, to provide the services or information you have requested, to personalize your experience on this website, to provide customer support, to improve this website, to enforce ProNex’ agreements and policies, to resolve disputes, to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, and to design new services for your future use.

ProNex may also use the information to notify you about new services or offers ProNex have available, or news about ProNex.

ProNex may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your personal information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.

When We Share the Information

ProNex shares information within our organization to enable us to better understand our customers’ product and service needs, and to learn how to best design, develop, and package products and services to meet those needs.

ProNex does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to unaffiliated third parties for their marketing purposes without your consent.

ProNex occasionally hires other companies to provide services on its behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

ProNex may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ProNex or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ProNex; (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our services or members of the public, (d) to respond to legal requests, or (e) in connection with the sale of substantially all or our assets to which this website relates.

While we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that our use and disclosure of your personally identifiable information as described in our privacy statement, we cannot ensure that your communications with us will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this privacy statement.

Other Information We Collect

Some information may automatically be collected as you browse our site. Our web server automatically collects information such as the domain name of the service providing you with Internet access, the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, the average time spent on our site, pages viewed, information searched for, access times and other relevant statistics.

We also use cookies on our site. A cookie is a small data file that websites commonly write to the site visitor’s hard drive when a site is visited. A cookie file contains information that can identify a return visitor each time he or she visits our site. The data is encrypted for added security. ProNex’ website may use cookies as a way to measure activity and traffic patterns on the site in order to continually improve the visitor’s experience. A browser can be set to warn the users before accepting cookies. Users can choose to refuse cookies by turning them off in the browser. Users do not need to have cookies turned on to visit our website.

Your Choices

We do not collect personally identifiable information about you on this site without your knowledge, and all such information is collected directly from you. You are not required to provide us with this information, but if you choose not to, you may not be able to participate in some of the activities on this site.

We use the information we collect from you to allow you to participate in the site activities for which the information is collected. For example, when you give us your e-mail address in order to receive newsletters, product information and special promotions, your e-mail address will be added to our marketing database. ProNex will only send e-mails to visitor’s that request ProNex send them this information. ProNex will not send commercial solicitations via e-mail to customers who request it not be sent to them. On each e-mail you receive, you are given the opportunity to unsubscribe. In addition, you can unsubscribe by sending an e-mail to unsubscribe@pronexinc.com. Once you unsubscribe, you will no longer receive such e-mails.

Transfers of Information

Because ProNex operates from its headquarters in Chicago, Illinois in the United States of America and through subsidiary companies located in many countries around the globe, and because its web servers which host its web sites are located at numerous locations inside and outside the United States, it is possible that personal information about visitors may be transferred from one country to another. In particular, your personally identifiable information will likely be processed by us in the U.S. or Canada, where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union, and are considered inadequate by the European Union. By providing us with your information, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

Access and Review

If you have questions regarding your personally identifiable information that we have collected via this website, or which to change or delete such data from our active databases, please contact us at info@pronexinc.com.

Children and Privacy

ProNex does not knowingly collect information from or about children under age 13 years of age.

Security

ProNex has databases and systems that are maintained in accordance with industry standards to reasonably secure all of ProNex’ commercial information, including information about customers. However, you should be aware that absolute security does not exist on the Internet, and that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.

Changes to Policy

If ProNex decides to change its privacy policies and practices, ProNex will post those changes to our Privacy Policy on our web site in advance of the changes taking effect, so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner from that point forward. We will continue to be able to use information in accordance with the Privacy Policy under which the information was collected or, if you have given consent, under the modified Privacy Policy.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed on the Internet. Under the law, copyright owners who believe that their rights have been infringed by unauthorized use of their protected works appearing online may contact the service provider hosting the material in question, directly or through their authorized agents, and request that the infringing material be removed or access to it disabled.

ProNex takes allegations of copyright infringement very seriously. If you believe in good faith that ProNex is the hosting service provider of material that infringes your copyright, you may submit a written notification of claimed infringement to ProNex’ designated agent:

By Email
fredpira@pronexinc.com

Phone: (847) 726-7718
Facsimile: (847) 726-7715

NOTE: No other notices or communications should be sent to the designated agent, who is appointed solely for the purpose of receiving notices of copyright claims.

Specific requirements for proper notification of claimed infringement are set forth in the DMCA (see 17 U.S.C. Sec. 512(c)(3)). Valid notification must be a written communication that includes all of the following elements:

  1. Signature of copyright owner or person authorized to act on behalf of the owner;
  2. Identification of copyrighted work claimed to be infringed;
  3. Identification of the material claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;
  4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party (address, phone number and, if available, e-mail address);
  5. A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right allegedly being infringed.

Please be aware that there are substantial penalties for false claims.

Counter Notification to Claimed Copyright Infringement

If a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, you may submit a counter notification to the service provider’s designated agent. A valid counter notification is a written communication that incorporates the following elements:

  1. A physical or electronic signature;
  2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
  3. A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification; and
  4. Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of federal district court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the complainant.

This information should not be construed as legal advice. We advise that you seek independent legal counsel before filing a notification or counter-notification.
