Excel4Business may collect information about the use of the Website, such as the types of services used and how many users we receive daily. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually. Excel4Business may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.
Excel4Business does use the services of third parties, such as e-mail service providers, purchase and order processing merchants and marketing companies that act as independent contractors on behalf of Excel4Business. These parties are contractually prohibited from using personally identifiable information for any purpose other than for the purpose Excel4Business specifies. We do provide non-personally identifiable information to certain service providers for their use on an aggregated basis for the purpose of performing their contractual obligations to us. We prohibit the sale or transfer of personal information to entities outside of the Excel4Business` affiliates for their use without your approval.
In the event that all or substantially all of Excel4Business` stock and/or assets (or the assets of a division or subsidiary) are transferred or sold to another entity, or Excel4Business (or a division or subsidiary) is acquired by, or merged with, another entity, Excel4Business may transfer personally identifiable information to the acquiring entity and Excel4Business may provide to such entity customer information that is related to that part of our business that was sold to or merged with the other entity without your consent. If, as a result of such a business transition, your personally identifiable information will be used in a materially different manner, you will be given choice consistent with our policy regarding notification of changes.
You can always choose whether or not to disclose personally identifiable information and that choice will not prevent you from using the Excel4Business Website.

However, we may continue to use your personal information for internal purposes, to enhance your user experience or as necessary to administer the site or comply with applicable law.
Excel4Business is retaining these rights because in limited cases we feel that we may need the right to contact you as a matter of law or regarding matters which will be important to you. These rights do not allow us to contact you to market a new or existing service if you have asked us not to do so, and issuance of these types of communications are rare.
