Privacy is very important to Paradigm.
As you use this site, certain anonymous, non-personal information can be passively collected (collected without you actively providing the information) using technologies such as, but not limited to, “cookies”, “Internet tags”, “Internet Protocol Addresses (IP)”, “Web beacons”, Analytics Advertising Features and “Navigational data” collection methods. Non-personal information may include, but is not limited to, the following:
• the type of web browser software you use (for example, Firefox or Internet Explorer)
• the name of the domain from which you access the Internet
• the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to our Web site
• the date and time you access our Web site
• the search terms you use
• the links on which you click
• personal information that has been made non-personal or anonymized (i.e., information that no longer reflects or references an individually identifiable user)
As mentioned above, Paradigm will use non-personal information from you to help us make this site more useful to visitors. Paradigm will also use non-personal information for other business purposes. For example, we may use non-personal information or aggregate non-personal information to:
• create reports for internal use to develop programs, products, services or content
• customize the information or services that are of interest to you
• provide aggregated “traffic statistics” and “response rates” to third parties
In the ordinary course of business, Paradigm will share some personal information with companies that we hire to perform services or functions on our behalf. In all cases in which we share your personal information with a third party, we will not authorize them to keep, disclose or use your information with others except for the purpose of providing the services we asked them to provide. We will not sell, exchange or publish your personal information, except in conjunction with a corporate sale, merger, dissolution, or acquisition.
Paradigm may be legally compelled to release your personal information in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, law or regulation. Paradigm may cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating and prosecuting Web site visitors who violate our rules or engage in behavior which is harmful to other visitors (or illegal).
Paradigm may disclose your personal information to third parties if we feel that the disclosure is necessary to:
• protect our rights or property
• comply with a law or regulation, court order or other legal process
Please note: Some of the features on this Web site allow you to communicate with us using an online form. If your communication requests a response from us, we will send you a response via e-mail. The e-mail response or confirmation may include your personal information, including your name, address, etc. We cannot guarantee that our e-mails to you will be secure from unauthorized interception.
Please be aware that Internet transmissions, to include emails, are never totally secure. Information you submit to this site via the Internet or through email may not be secure; however, we will take reasonable steps to protect any personally identifiable information you may transmit to us from unauthorized access and misuse. Paradigm cannot guarantee or warrant this Web site or its security components against breaches of security, the interruption of the system or user error and misuse.

Access, Opt-Out, Modification Personal Data
Paradigm will provide individuals with reasonable access to Personal Data about them and they may request the correction or amendment of Personal Data that they demonstrate to be incorrect or incomplete. Paradigm will endeavor to process all reasonable requests for access within a reasonable time period but reserves the right to deny access or limit access in cases where the burden or cost of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy or in the case of a vexatious or fraudulent request.
Paradigm may provide an individual the opportunity to opt out of certain features Paradigm uses, including through Settings or Ads Settings or any other available means.
