Privacy Policy

Five Blocks understands that your reputation is critically important to you and that you may not want to reveal to the public that you are proactively managing your online reputation.

Without express permission, we never reveal to other clients, potential clients, analysts, or the media our relationship with our clients or partners. This promise is affirmed in our NDA.

Information Collection and Use

Five Blocks respects the privacy of the users of this Internet site and personal electronic communication generally.  We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.  Five Blocks collects information from our users at several different points on our website.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes.  We use persistent cookies on this site. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “Help” file.

We set a persistent cookie to track user preferences and for our shopping cart.  Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.  IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. We will not share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

Links

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites.  We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.  This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Security

This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information.  When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

When our order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as your name or email), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL.  While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Firefox and Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘Browsing’.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line.  All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices.  Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are privy to it.

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.  No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however.  Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to info (at) FiveBlocks.com.

Changes in this privacy statement

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.  If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email, this webpage, or a notice on our homepage.  Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.  We reserve the right to modify this statement at any time.

Legal Disclosure

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on our Web site.
