Privacy Policy

Last Updated: February 24, 2010

Thank you for your interest in Teknos Associates LLC (Teknos), our services, and our website located at (the Website). Your use of the Website, is subject to this Privacy Policy. We are pleased to provide this Privacy Policy to inform you of our practices with respect to how we collect and use personally identifiable information in connection with your use of the Website.

Information We Collect
We do not collect information about users of our Website, unless you submit a Request More Information email from the Contact page and then we collect only your contact information.

Use of Information
Teknos uses your personally identifiable information primarily to contact you in response to an Information Request.  Additionally, we may use your email address to send you additional information about valuation subjects from time to time.

Outsourcing or Offshoring of Information
We retain client information on our own secure servers and do not utilize outside contractors—either here in the US or overseas—for any work.  That way, your information is protected by strict US privacy laws (privacy laws in jurisdictions such as India are weak or non-existent) and the confidentiality clause of our standard engagement contract.

Controlling Your Information
When you use our Website, nothing will be posted publicly or transmitted to third parties. Teknos may disclose your personally identifiable information upon a transfer or sale to another entity of all or substantially all of Teknos’ stock or assets in Teknos’ line of business to which this Privacy Policy relates or upon any bankruptcy or other corporate reorganization.

For your convenience, we may provide links to certain third party websites or referrals to certain third parties’ products or services. If you choose to visit a third party’s website or use its products or services, please be aware that the third party’s privacy policy, and not the Teknos Privacy Policy, will govern your activities and any information you disclose while interacting with the third party.

Because any personally identifiable information you submit to Teknos is purely voluntary and should not be of a particularly sensitive nature, we employ our standard security measures with respect to this information and do not use special encryption methods at this time.  Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.

Collection of Information From Children
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information relating to children. In the event that we learn that we have collected personally identifiable information from anyone under 18 years of age without prior parental consent, we will take steps to promptly delete such information. By providing your personal information to Teknos, through the Website, you represent that you are 18 years of age or older.

Policy Changes
Teknos reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy, and will post any revisions on the Website. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes. Your continued use of the Website will be subject to the then-current privacy policy.

International Visitors and Customers
Teknos provides services and the Website is hosted in the United States of America (US). If you are visiting the Website from the European Union (EU) or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from US law, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU and by providing your personal data you consent to:
1. The use of your personal data for the purposes identified above in accordance with this Privacy Policy; and
2. The transfer of your personal data to the US as indicated above.

No Error-Free Performance
Teknos does not guarantee error-free performance under this Privacy Policy. We may not always catch an unintended privacy issue, despite our efforts to do so. Accordingly, we welcome your feedback regarding any privacy concerns that you may have, including how we can improve this Privacy Policy. We will use reasonable efforts to comply with this Privacy Policy and will take prompt corrective action when we learn of any failure to comply with it.

Legal Notices
This Privacy Policy is superseded by the terms of an Engagement Letter whenever you engage us for specific services.  The terms of that Engagement Letter take precedence over any conflicting provision in this Privacy Policy.
