How Do We Use Cookies?

When you visit this Site, we place a "cookie" on the hard drive of your computer to track your visit. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your hard drive through your web browser that can only be read by the website that placed the cookie on your hard drive. The cookie acts as an identification card and allows this Site to identify you and to record your passwords and preferences. The cookie allows us to track your visit to the website so that we can better understand your use of this Site. If you register for an account with this Site, a cookie also enables you to automatically log-on to your account by saving your registered user identification information (i.e. username, password, etc.).

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies. However, on most web browsers you may change this setting to have your web browser either: (1) notify you prior to a website placing a cookie on your hard drive so that you can decide whether or not to accept the cookie; or (2) automatically prevent the placing of a cookie on your hard drive. If you register for an account with this Site, you should note that if cookies are not accepted by you, you may need to log-in each time you access your account.

What about Links to other Websites?

This Site may contain links to other websites that may be subject to less stringent privacy standards. We cannot assume any responsibility for the privacy practices, policies, or actions of any third parties that operate these websites. Soroc is not responsible for how such third parties collect, use, or disclose your personal information. You should review the privacy policies of these websites before providing them with any personal information.

Why Do We Collect, Use, and Disclose Personal Information?

The personal information collected through this Site is used and disclosed for our business purposes described herein in order to improve the performance of this Site and/or to establish, maintain, and/or enhance a business relationship with you.

Your personal information is shared with our affiliates, employees, contractors, consultants, and other parties who require such information to assist us with establishing, maintaining and managing our relationship with you. In addition, personal information may be disclosed or transferred to another party in the event of a change in ownership of, or a grant of a security interest in, all or a part of Soroc.

We may collect, use or disclose your personal information without your knowledge or consent where we are permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements to do so.

Your Consent is Important to Us

You may change or withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice, by contacting privacyinquiries@soroc.com. In some circumstances, a change in or withdrawal of consent may severely limit our ability to provide products or services to, or acquire products or services from you. All communications with respect to such withdrawal or variation of consent should be in writing to privacyinquiries@soroc.com.

How is Your Personal Information Protected?

Soroc endeavors to maintain physical, technical, and procedural safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in question. These safeguards are designed to prevent your personal information from loss and unauthorized access, copying, use, modification, or disclosure.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while this website strives to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you submit or transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once this website receives your transmission, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

Updating Your Personal Information

It is important that the information contained in our records is both accurate and current. If your personal information changes during the course of our relationship, please keep us informed of such changes.
