  • Kalibrio is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy is intended to describe how your personal information is processed and used, and we will make every effort to ensure that our activities keep within the spirit of this Privacy Policy. Please note that by visiting and using Kalibrio.com you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

    What Information is Kalibrio gathering about its visitors and how is it being used?

    Every computer connected to the Internet is provided with an IP Address (e.g. 192.168.12.128). When a visitor requests a page from the Kalibrio website, our Web Servers automatically identify and log the HTTP request that is made to our Web Server. This information reveals nothing personal about you. The information that we automatically gather and log is as follows:

    • The IP Address of the Site that may have referred you.
    • Your IP Address
    • The Web Page that you may have linked to us from, if any.
    • The Product Identifier for Version and Make of Browser (e.g. Internet Explorer 6)
    • The Operating System that you are running (e.g. Macintosh or Windows)
    • Search Words or Terms that are passed from a Search Engine (e.g. Google, Yahoo, or AltaVista)

    There is absolutely nothing special about the information just described, and the practice of collecting this data has been generally standardised by virtually every Web Server on the Internet today.

    The purpose for this information is actually two-fold. One, Kalibrio has found it advantageous to examine visitor traffic in its aggregate, so that we can ensure maximum compatibility for the various Browsers and Operating Systems that visit our site. Additionally, as any business should attest, it is our desire to generate greater amounts of visitor traffic. By analysing visitation patterns, referring URLs and Search Engine terms, we can strategically enhance our exposure on the Internet.

    What about Cookies?

    Cookies are small pieces of data that are transferred to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser from our Web Server. A cookie cannot read data from your hard disk or read cookie files that may have been created from other sites. The Kalibrio website utilises cookies as a means of providing personalisation features to our visitors. For example, we utilize cookies to remember settings that you may have made at our website.

    You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your browser. Typically, by accessing the browser's help feature you can obtain information on how to prevent your browser from accepting all cookies or to notify you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our website and other websites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

    What other information does Kalibrio request?

    We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a survey, adding you to our mailing list, or by your request to have someone contact you for additional information. Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. We maintain a strict "No Spam" policy that means we do not intend to sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third-party, without your consent.

    In addition, Kalibrio will not send you e-mail that you have not agreed to receive. If you are a member of our Mailing List, you will be contacted with announcements, news, portfolio additions, and new products or services. You have the option of "Unsubscribing" from our Mailing List at any time, thereby disabling any further such e-mail communication from being sent to you. If you wish to have specific communications with a member of the Kalibrio staff, you will be required to provide specific information that will be routed to the appropriate contact within Kalibrio.

    Will Kalibrio disclose the information collected to Third Parties?


    Kalibrio will disclose your personal information or any of its log file information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such actions are necessary to:
    1. Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process served on Kalibrio.
    2. Protect and defend the rights or property of Kalibrio, or visitors of Kalibrio.
    3. Identify persons who may be violating the law, the legal notice, or the rights of third parties.
    4. Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities. Kalibrio uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. Kalibrio reserves the right to transfer information in connection with the sale of all or part of Kalibrio capital stock or assets to any third party. Furthermore, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties that receive the information. Kalibrio may also provide "links" to other web sites on the Internet. We are not responsible for their Privacy Policies or how those web sites manage information about their users. We strongly urge you to check with those web sites to determine their privacy policy.
