For purposes of this Privacy Notice, "Personal Data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. As described in detail below, we may collect certain Personal Data from or about you in connection with your use of, or your submissions to, the Site.
We may collect Personal Data as follows:
When you communicate with us, sign up for materials, and interact with the Site. We may collect Personal Data, such as your name, address, phone number, email address, fax number and business contact information, when you communicate with us or submit information to us.

A "cookie" is a small text file that a web server stores in browser software. A browser sends cookies to a server when the browser makes a connection to the server (for example, when requesting a web page from the same domain that created the cookie). The purpose of cookies is to remember the browser over time and distinguish one browser instance (or user) from all others. Some cookies and other technologies may serve to track Personal Data previously entered by a web user on our Site. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them, and how to remove them. Cookies can remember login information, preferences, and similar information.
Cookies, as well as other tracking technologies, such as HTML5 local storage, and Local Shared Objects, and similar mechanisms, may record information such as a unique identifier, information you enter in a form, IP address, and other categories of data.
We may also use web beacons or “pixels,” and in certain circumstances may collect IP address, screen resolution and browser software and operating system types, clickstream patterns, dates and times that our Site is accessed, and other categories of data.
If you want to block the use and saving of cookies from the Site on to the computers’ hard drive, you should take the necessary steps within your web browser’s settings to block all cookies from the Site and its external serving vendors, or use the cookie control system, if available upon first visit. Please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, certain parts of our Site may not function correctly. For information on how to disable cookies, refer to your browser’s documentation.

We may use Personal Data for a variety of different purposes as set out in further detail below. Subject to applicable law, the purposes for which we use and process Personal Data, and the legal basis for such processing, are set forth below.
In some cases where we are not already authorized to process the Personal Data under applicable law, we may ask for your consent to process your Personal Data:
Special Categories of Personal Data. We generally do not collect or require special categories of Personal Data (such as racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, health information, biometric data, or sexual orientation) in order to access our Site. In the event we may need to collect such information to provide a specific service to you, we will obtain your consent as required by law. If you choose not to provide consent, you may not be able to access all of the features and content of our Site. In certain circumstances, subject to applicable law, we may process or otherwise disclose special categories of Personal Data without consent, such as to protect the vital interests of you or of another person.
We may disclose Personal Data as described in this Privacy Notice, including:
We may create de-identified or anonymous data from Personal Data by removing data components (such as your name, email address, or linkable tracking ID) that make the data personally identifiable to you or through obfuscation or through other means. Our use of anonymized data is not subject to this Privacy Notice.
Do-Not-Track is a public-private initiative that has developed a "flag" or signal that an Internet user may activate in the user's browser software to notify websites that the user does not wish to be "tracked" by third-parties as defined by the initiative. The online community has not agreed on what actions, if any, should be taken by the websites that receive the "do not track" signal, and therefore Do-Not-Track is not yet standardized. Please note that the Site does not alter its behavior or use practices when we receive a Do-Not-Track signal from your browser.
We do not knowingly collect information from minors under the age of 13 years without parental consent. If you become aware that an individual under 13 years of age has provided us with Personal Data without parental consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we become aware that an individual under 13 years has provided us with Personal Data without parental consent, we will take steps to remove the data as permitted by law.
Our Site may contain links or otherwise provide access to another website, mobile application, or Internet location (collectively "Third-Party Sites"). We provide these links merely for your convenience. Qualis has no control over, does not review, and is not responsible for Third-Party Sites, their content, or any goods or services available through the Third-Party Sites. Our Privacy Notice does not apply to Third-Party Sites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of any Third-Party Site with which you choose to interact.
