Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last updated on June 6, 2018.

Okera Inc. (“Okera”) is committed to protecting the privacy and security of the data of its website visitors. This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect when you use our website www.Okera.com (the “Site”) and Okera’s other online products and services (together with the Site, the “Services”). We want you to understand how we collect and use information from our Services, so you can interact with Okera with confidence. By using Okera’s Services, you accept and agree to the practices this Privacy Policy describes.

Okera is a U.S.-based company with domestic and international business clients. As a result, information that we collect on our Site, including personal information, may be transferred to our U.S. offices to permit us to comply with our legal and contractual obligations, to provide information and services to prospective and current clients, and to perform related business activities. In addition, we may work with third-party service providers in the U.S. and in other countries to support our business activities. Thus, personal information may be transferred to, stored on servers in, and accessed from the United States and countries other than the country in which the information was initially collected. In all such instances, we use, transfer, and disclose personal information solely for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

Information Collection Not Covered by this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy also does not apply to personal information that Okera collects and uses for employment-related purposes, whether through this Site or through a website operated on our behalf by a third-party service provider.

When you access the Services, you are doing so in a business capacity as a representative of your company, and your interactions with the Client Site are governed by our relationship agreement with your company.

Information We Collect From and About You

“Personal Information” means any information from or about a person that either identifies that person directly or that makes that person identifiable when it is combined with other information from or about that person from any source. Personal Information stops being personal information when it has been aggregated, deidentified, or otherwise anonymized sufficiently that the individual is no longer identified or identifiable using reasonable efforts, resources, and technology. “Sensitive Personal Information” is Personal Information that reveals racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership; genetic and biometric data if used for identification purposes; data about health, sex life, or sexual orientation; and data about criminal convictions or offenses.

When you use our Services, we may collect and use Personal Information about you, as well as other information.

More specifically, when you use our Services, we may collect the following information:

  • Details of your visits to our Services and the resources that you access, including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, including your IP address, browser type, the date and time you accessed or left the Services, and which pages you viewed. Some parts of our Services use cookies and other technologies to collect this information about your general internet usage. See the section below called “How We Use Cookies and Pixel Tags” to learn more.
  • We may also collect information using web beacons (also known as “gifs,” “pixel tags” and “tracking pixels”). Web beacons are electronic images that may be used in our Services or emails and help deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness, and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon.
  • Information that you provide directly to us by filling in forms on our Services, including your name, email address, or other information. You may update, correct or delete information about you at any time by emailing us at info@Okera.com. If you wish to delete or suspend your account, please email us at info@Okera.com, but note that we may retain certain information as required by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may also retain cached or archived copies of your information for a certain period of time.
  • Information provided to us when you communicate with us for any reason, including information you provide in emails you send us, or submissions you may make to our contact form.
Information that You Provide to Us Voluntarily

If you choose to communicate with us through an online form, by sending us an email, by requesting additional information, by registering for one of our events, by purchasing goods or services from us, or by otherwise contacting us, we will collect whatever information, including personal information, that you choose to provide us with. We will combine that information with other information that we collect from and about you as described in this Privacy Policy.

Security

We use physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect on our Services. These procedures include, but are not limited to, firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection, and Services monitoring. We also limit access to any Personal Information we receive to employees who need access to that information in order to do their jobs. However, no data protection procedures are entirely infallible. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that it will be 100% secure. Your transmission of your data to our Services thus is done entirely at your own risk.

Sharing Your Information

Except to the extent necessary to fulfill our business obligations, to accomplish one of the lawful purposes described in this Privacy Policy, or in response to your express instructions, we do not sell, transfer, or otherwise disclose personal information that we collect from or about you.

Such third parties have access to personal information as needed to perform their functions, but they are not allowed to use it for other purposes. We do not sell or rent personal information collected through the Services to anyone.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties if we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of any or all of our business and/or our assets to a third party, or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to:

  • comply with applicable laws, regulations, legal process (such as a subpoena), or enforceable government request;
  • enforce applicable Terms of Use, including investigation of potential violations of such Terms, or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; and
