Mezzoware respects your privacy and is committed to protect the personal information that you share with us. Generally, you can browse through our website without giving us any information about yourself. When we do need your personal information to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this policy describes how we collect and use your personal information.
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests, other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
When you browse our website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish Mezzoware to remember your login and password. We don’t automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our website. Like many other commercial websites, the Mezzoware website may use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how you use the site. Please go to “Cookies and Tracking Information” below for more information.
Access to certain Mezzoware web pages require a login and a password. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and Mezzoware. Unless you request deletion of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by Mezzoware to verify compliance with the agreement, log software licenses granted, to track software downloaded from those pages, or track usage of other applications available on those pages.
When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. Mezzoware will not transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent.
If you choose to provide us with your personal information, we may only transfer that information, within Mezzoware or to Mezzoware’s third party service providers with your permission. Upon receiving your permission, we may transfer your information across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.

How We Use Information Collected
Mezzoware uses information for several general purposes: to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to personalize your experience on our website, to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you’d like to hear about either from us or from our business partners, and to better understand your needs and provide you with better services. We may also use your information to send you, or to have our business partners send you, direct marketing information or contact you for market research.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Your personal information is never shared outside Mezzoware without your permission, except under conditions explained below. Inside Mezzoware, data is stored in controlled servers with limited access. Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where Mezzoware, its subsidiaries, affiliates or agents are located.
Mezzoware may send your personal information to other companies or people under any of the following circumstances: when we have your consent to share the information; we need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested; we need to send the information to companies who work on behalf of Mezzoware to provide a product or service to you (we will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose); or we want to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you’d like to hear about either from us or from our business partners.
Your Mezzoware account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. Mezzoware safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. In certain areas of our websites, Mezzoware uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to enhance the security of data transmissions. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us, and so we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
Children and Privacy
Our websites do not target and are not intended to attract children under the age of 13. Mezzoware does not knowingly solicit personal information from children under the age of 13 or send them requests for personal information.
Third Party Sites
Mezzoware’s website contains links to other sites. Mezzoware does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.
Mezzoware will amend this policy from time to time. If we make any sub stantial changes in the way we use your personal information we will make that information available by posting a notice on this site.
