C. Session Tracking and Cookies
D. E-mails and Newsletters
As noted in the discussions of cookies and web beacons (see above), we collect anonymous, non-personal information about your use of e-mails and newsletters that we may send to you from time to time. In some cases, when you click on a link or an advertisement in an e-mail or newsletter, your browser may be momentarily directed to the site of a third party which, acting on Quantimetrix behalf (see Disclosure to Website Service and Content Contractors, below), notes or “counts” your response to the e-mail or newsletter before re-directing your browser to its proper destination. This re-direction process will not be apparent to you.

B. Disclosure to Quantimetrix Operations and Maintenance Contractors
Quantimetrix operations and maintenance contractors may sometimes have limited access to your Personal Information in the course of providing products or services to Quantimetrix. These contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content related to operation and maintenance of our Site. These contractors may have access to your e-mail address to send newsletters or special promotions on our behalf or to conduct market research on our behalf. Access to your Personal Information by these contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for the contractor to perform its limited function for Quantimetrix.

D. Disclosure to Linked Sites
E. Disclosure of Aggregate Information
Quantimetrix may provide to third parties non-personal information about you that does not allow you to be identified or contacted and that is combined with the non-personal information of other users (“Aggregate Information”). For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of users of our Site, the activities they conduct while on our Site, or the geographic or demographic composition of our user base. Depending on the circumstances, we may or may not charge third parties for this Aggregate Information. We may not limit the third parties’ use of the Aggregate Information.
III. HOW QUANTIMETRIX HANDLES PRIVACY AND SECURITY INTERNALLY
Quantimetrix wants your Personal Information to remain as secure and accurate as possible. We implement appropriate measures and processes to protect your Personal Information and maintain its quality, such as encryption. Although we make reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that thieves or hackers could find a way to thwart our security systems.
IV. YOUR PRIVACY CHOICES
You will be given the option to opt in or sign up for recurring informational/promotional e-mails from Quantimetrix and/or third parties. You may also opt out of receiving these e-mails from or on behalf of Quantimetrix at any time. If you no longer wish to receive emails or newsletters, follow the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the e-mail/newsletter.
You may also have the option of receiving e-mails or newsletters from third parties, participating in research or marketing surveys and participating in other activities. You will have the option of opting out of those third party activities as well, by following the instructions provided by such third parties.
This privacy statement applies only to the Site. The Site may contain links to other sites. Once you enter another website (whether through an advertisement, service, or content link), be aware that Quantimetrix has no control over and is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to look for and review the privacy statements of each and every website that you visit through a link or advertisement on Quantimetrix’s Site or any site that collects Personal Information from you.
V. UPDATING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND CONTACTING QUANTIMETRIX
You can always contact us in order to (1) delete your Personal Information from our systems, (2) update the Personal Information that you have provided to us, and (3) change your preferences with respect to marketing contacts or other activities, by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Such changes will not have any effect on other information that Quantimetrix maintains. If you have a complaint or problem you may e-mail us at email@example.com and the sales department will forward your complaint to the appropriate internal Quantimetrix department for a response or resolution. We try to answer every e-mail in a timely manner but are not always able to do so.
You should be aware that it may not be technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to Quantimetrix from our servers. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss, for example, means that a copy of your Personal Information may exist in a non-erasable form that may be difficult or impossible for us to locate. Nevertheless, upon receiving your request, we will endeavor to delete all Personal Information stored in the databases we actively use for research and daily business activities, as well as other readily searchable media.
