Collection and Use of Personal Information
You may view the Sites without providing any personal information—such as your name, address, or date of birth— that, alone or in combination with other information, could reasonably be used to identify you.
We only collect personal information that you voluntarily provide to us through the Sites. You may also request information about us through the “contact us” and “careers” sections of the Sites. When you provide personal information to us via this or any other means, we will use this information to respond to your requests and inquiries regarding our products and our business operations, including employment opportunities with Beowulf E&D. We may also use your personal information to send you information about products and services that we think may interest you.
Generally, we do not share the personal information collected through the Sites with third parties unless we have obtained your prior permission. However, we may share this information under the following circumstances without prior notice or permission: (i) with our business affiliates; (ii) with agents and contractors that assist us in administering the Sites and in providing our products and services to you; (iii) in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it (for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency’s request); (iv) to protect the rights, property or safety of Beowulf E&D, the Sites, users of the Sites and others; or (v) in connection with a transfer or sale of assets or ownership to another entity.
We do not consider the questions, comments, ideas or suggestions you submit to us through the Sites to be personal information. By visiting the Sites, you understand that we may use any information you transmit to us, subject to applicable law, for any purpose, including reproduction, disclosure, transmission, publication, broadcast and posting.
Beowulf E&D also collects and uses certain non-personal information in anonymous and/or aggregate form to track data such as the total number of visits to our Sites and the number of visitors to each page of our Sites. We use this information to understand how visitors use the Sites so that we may improve them. We may also share this anonymous and/or aggregate information with our affiliates and third parties. This data may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit sites, operating system, date stamp and clickstream data. Beowulf E&D uses this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, administer the Sites, track users’ movements around the Sites and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
Beowulf E&D also employs clear gifs (a/k/a web beacons/web bugs), that help us better manage content on the Sites. Clear gifs are similar in nature to cookies. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the online movements of visitors to the Sites. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not link the information gathered by clear gifs to any personally identifiable information.

Measures Taken to Secure Your Data
Beowulf E&D follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us. No method of electronic storage, however, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect any personal information you submit through the Sites, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Transfers of Personal Information
The hosting facilities for our website and operations are located in the United States. By providing us your data, you consent to its transfer and storage within the U.S.
