Whether you’re browsing our site, using our applications, or seeking to acquire our professional services, we want to make you comfortable with our privacy practices and the security measures we take to protect your personal information. While we’ve structured our Websites so that, in general, you can visit us on the Web without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information, you may be required to provide personal information to access certain secured and detailed information, download certain software, enter certain transactions, and/or to request our services.
What Personal Information Do We Collect?
On some Qittle Websites, Web pages, and in some Qittle applications, you can provide personal demographics, an email address, a company name, an address, a cellular telephone number and/or a standard telephone number, which Qittle collects and stores. Registration for access to secured services and applications may require or allow you to input other personal information such as credit card numbers, bank account numbers, other account numbers, passwords, flight numbers, driver’s license numbers, birth date, and other secure information. For example, Qittle applications may accept such information when you are using the Qittle applications to securely store the information, and where you choose to submit such information to the Qittle applications. Information that you submit for your sole personal use through Qittle’s services and applications is encrypted and password-protected to prevent unauthorized access, and Qittle does not access the unencrypted information without your permission, for example, where you ask Qittle for help in accessing your information. Qittle further uses its best efforts to prevent unauthorized access to the information by third parties. When you request a quote or place an order for a Qittle application or service, Qittle may also collect and store personally identifiable information, including name, title, company, address, e-mail address, phone numbers, driver’s license numbers, date of birth, transaction, credit card and other necessary information. We do not require this information to obtain access to the home page of our public site, but do require it if you wish to participate in such specialized applications, services, or features.
In addition, our Web server storage logs can collect the domain names, internet protocol addresses, the types of web browsers, and certain click stream data of visitors to our Websites. This information is used only internally. For example, this information may be aggregated to measure number of visits, average time spent on the Qittle.com Website, pages viewed, etc. In addition, this information may assist Qittle in diagnosing problems with and administering the Website. We may use this information to measure the use of our sites and to improve the content of our sites, such as through customization for a particular user.
Periodically, Qittle may conduct surveys, contests, promotions and the like on our Website and/or applications, and Qittle may give you the opportunity to participate in these. Participation may require that you submit certain personally identifiable information to Qittle, and Qittle will collect and store this information; however, any participation is strictly voluntary and not required to continue use of the Qittle Website, applications, and services, so you have a choice whether or not to submit this information.
Who is Collecting the Personal Information?
How Do We Use the Information We Get?
Qittle uses your information to better understand your needs to provide you with personalized and customized services and products. With respect to transactions, Qittle’s goal in collecting personal information is to facilitate order processing and to enable us to contact you if a problem arises with your order. Providing such information when making a purchase is required. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, to communicate back to you, to update you on service and benefits, and to personalize our Websites for you, which includes interactive communications, and other services.
The Qittle site may also contain optional surveys and questionnaires asking for information, as well as several opportunities for visitors to ask questions. We use the information you provide to help us develop and provide better products, to customize your experience, and to provide advice and other recommendations. We may also use your information to contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest. Taking part in any of these segments is always optional. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or market research contact. For example, if you want to be removed from a mailing list, please contact Casey McConnell at casey@Qittle.com. We will also follow local requirements, such as allowing you to opt in before receiving unsolicited contact, where applicable. For example, Qittle will never subscribe you to a mobile messaging program unless you opt in to such a program. Further information regarding marketing or market research contacts is available in our Anti-Spam Policy.
Finally, Qittle can conduct research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us when you are requesting information, making a purchase, participating in a promotion, and/or from surveys and our server log files. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis so as to prevent identification of personal information relating to any one individual.
Who Can We Share the Personal Information With?
What are Cookies?

We use this information to understand how our users navigate our site, and to determine common traffic patterns. We may also use this information to better personalize the content, banner ads, and promotions that you and other users will see.

What Choices Do I Have Regarding Collection, Use and Distribution of My Information?
As previously stated in “Who Can We Share the Personal Information With?” , we will also provide you the opportunity to let us know if you do not wish to receive unsolicited direct marketing materials from us and we will do everything we can to honor such requests. For example, Qittle or the third parties it uses may, from time to time, send you e-mail or direct mail regarding our products and services. If you do not want to receive such information, simply tell us when you give us your personal information, or follow the directions contained on it to remove your name from our mailing list. Occasionally these promotion-related e-mail messages may include targeted advertisements. If you do not wish to receive such advertisements, you can choose not to participate in such promotions or contests. If you ever have questions regarding an e-mail you receive from Qittle or one our business partners, or want to be removed from a mailing list, please contact us at marcom@Qittle.com. Additionally, as stated above, Qittle and its associated third-parties will never subscribe you to a mobile messaging program unless you choose to opt in to such a program.
What Security Measures are Used by Qittle?
We protect the personal information you share with us. For example, if you make an online purchase with us through use of a credit card, we encrypt your credit card number. As a result, access to your personal information is limited to people who need it to do their job.
Where you use a Qittle service or application to store your personally identifiable information, including financial information and passwords, for access only by you, and where the information is not submitted to Qittle in order to obtain access to Qittle’s services or applications, such personally identifiable information is encrypted and password protected, and accessible only by you.
Qittle will use reasonable efforts to ensure the protection of such information. For we utilize SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), the industry standard security protocol. All of your ordering information is encrypted using this secure server for maximum security. We also use Microsoft IIS technology for certain products and services, which safeguards your online order by requesting authentication for server access, encrypting private information, and protecting the integrity of your data. We also maintain a certificate with VeriSign that serves as an electronic substitute for your signature.
Authorized third party agents may also need access to some of your personal information. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company. We only provide third party agents with the minimum amount of information needed to complete the requested service or transaction. We do not otherwise share your personal information with third parties, unless you have granted us permission to do so. We may also share information with third-party credit card providers and payment processors in order to process payments for products or services.
The security of the information you provide to Qittle depends at least in part on the password you choose for the Qittle Website, applications, and services. Never disclose your password to anyone, and make sure you choose a password that is not obvious to or easily ascertainable by another person. Qittle will never request that you send your password to Qittle via email, but you will be required to enter your password on the Qittle Website and/or related Web pages and applications and in order to access and use the Qittle applications and services.
How do I Access, Determine the Accuracy of, and Correct My Information?
Qittle strives to keep your personally identifiable information accurate. We will provide you with access to your information, including making reasonable efforts to provide you with online access to your registration data so that you may view, update or correct your information at the Qittle.com site where it was submitted, or at the various third party sites. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access or enabling you to make corrections.
However, we need your help in making sure your personal information is correct in our systems. Please notify us of changes to your name, address, title, phone number, cellular phone number and email address. If you would like to review, correct or change any personal information you have provided, or remove your name from our mailing lists or mobile messaging programs to which you have opted in, please e-mail us at service@Qittle.com.
What Steps Has Qittle Take to Provide Children’s Privacy Protection?
Qittle takes special care to protect the privacy needs of children under the age of 13 and encourages parents to be an active participant in their child’s online activities and interests. We abide by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) requirements. In addition, Qittle does not seek to collect information about children under the age of 13. No information should be submitted to or posted on this Website by users under 13 years of age. If a child under the age of 13 submits personal information to this Website, we delete the information as soon as we discover the source of the submission and do not use it for any other purpose. Qittle encourages parents to take an active role in their children’s use of the Internet and cellular telephones, and to inform them of the potential dangers of providing information about themselves over the Internet. We also recommend to parents to help make a child’s online experience safer to teach kids never to give personal information, unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult, to know the sites your kids are visiting and which sites are appropriate and to look for Website privacy policies to know how your child’s information is treated.
