Quality Technology Services (QTS) is sensitive to privacy issues with respect to the use of user information provided to us over the Internet. For this reason, we are disclosing to you our practices in gathering and using information which you provide us.
In general, you can visit QTS on the World Wide Web without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. Our web servers collect our visitor's domain names and IP addresses, but not personal email addresses. This information is used to diagnose problems with our server, measure the number of visits and number of pages viewed, and register methods by which our site was found, and methods used for viewing our site. QTS will use this information to evaluate how you use our Web site and how we improve the content of the site.
Your IP address is also used to help identify you to gather broad demographic information.
Our online surveys ask visitors for contact information (such as their e-mail address), unique identifiers (like their names), and demographic information (like their zip code, age, or income level). We use such data from our surveys to track the demographic information we receive from the survey takers and to log the user's identity. This information is not given out to third parties, and not used to send the user any unrequested correspondence. When requested by a user, QTS will contact or send materials to you for marketing or other purposes. However, we will not make user-specific information gathered on our site available to unaffiliated organizations for commercial purposes.
QTS may make use of an Internet tool called "cookies" in order to provide you with tailored information and for identification purposes. A cookie is a small piece of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive so we can recognize you when you return.
The QTS Web site may contain links to other sites. QTS is not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites.
Do not send us any proprietary or confidential information. Any data, answers, questions, comments, ideas, suggestions, or the like which you send to us will be treated as being nonconfidential and nonproprietary. We assume no obligation to protect such information from disclosure and will be free to reproduce, use, and distribute the information to others without restriction, permission, or license. We will also be free to use any ideas, techniques, concepts, or know-how contained in information that you send us for any purpose whatsoever including, but not limited to, developing and marketing products or services incorporating such information.
Because of the evolving nature of the technologies that we use and the way that we conduct business, we may amend this policy from time to time. We will post any revisions on this site.
