Privacy Policy

ChyronHego has created this statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy.  The following discloses information gathering and dissemination practices for ChyronHego's Web site at www.ChyronHego.com.

Information collection 
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you ("Personal Information") or allows us to contact you.  Generally this information is requested when you register for access to preferred content or email notifications, or when you would like to contact our webmaster, our sales, service, or human resources departments or our Board of Directors.

Visitors can change or correct information about themselves by contacting our website support group at the e-mail address: webmaster@ChyronHego.com

If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of www.ChyronHego.com anonymously. But you will not be able to access areas that require registration. Only the domain name from which you access the Internet, the Internet address and the date and time you access our web sites are logged. ChyronHego uses this information to analyze trends and to measure the number of visitors to our web sites.

Use of personal information
ChyronHego will not share any individual customer, without first receiving the individual's prior written approval. In short, ChyronHego does not sell registrant information to lists. In some cases, ChyronHego may use a visitor's personal information to understand overall patterns for site usage, to contact the user for clarification on inaccurate information, or to follow up on a customer service issue.

Opt-Out policy
When a visitor registers, the visitor will be given the opportunity to select whether or not to be included in the ChyronHego mailing list. Inclusion on the mailing list may entitle the user to receive our newsletter, updates or information about special offers, programs, new products and/or services. Opting out of our mailing list means the user will not be able to receive these benefits or this information.  If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by emailing us at webmaster@ChyronHego.com.

Links to other sites
This Web site may contain links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by ChyronHego. Please be aware that we, ChyronHego, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.  We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this Web site.

Bulletin Boards/Chat Rooms
If you use a bulletin board or chat room on this site, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages.  We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.

Log Files
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.  This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.  We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.  We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.

Cookies
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on this site. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. Our persistent cookies remain on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file.  We set a persistent cookie to store your passwords, so you don’t have to enter it more than once.  Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.  If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but you might not be able to take full advantage of our site.

Security
The security of your personal information is important to us.  We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.  No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however.  Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Changes in this Privacy Statement
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.  We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently.  If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.
