Attn: Information Security
Under certain circumstances we will not be able to fulfill your request, such as if it interferes with our regulatory obligations, affects legal matters, we cannot verify your identity, or it involves disproportionate cost or effort, but in any event, we will respond to your request within a reasonable time frame and provide you an explanation.
Opting Out/Unsubscribe from Marketing Preferences
If at any time you wish to “opt out” of receiving information from EleVia or its partners, please notify us by sending us an email or written message to the addresses shown above or by emailing us at email@example.com. We will respond to these requests within a reasonable time frame. Please note that due to lead times on certain mailings and other contacts, you may continue to receive mailings and other contacts while your “opt out” notification is being processed.
We use commercially reasonable technical and organizational safeguards to protect the security of all information and, where possible, conform to industry best practices. For example, some information gathered on our website is encrypted during transmission with TLS encryption and stored within secure databases protected by multiple firewalls. As effective as current encryption and other security technology is, however, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that information which users supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We may retain your personal information for as long as your account is active, as needed to provide services, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes or enforce our agreements.
Cross-Border Data Transfers
EleVia is a global corporation with operations in multiple countries and has developed global data security practices designed to ensure that your personal information is appropriately protected.

Laws in these countries may differ from the laws applicable to your country of residence. For instance, if you are a European Economic Area (EEA) data subject and your personal information is shared with our affiliates, partners, or third-party service providers acting on our behalf outside of the EEA, then it is done so pursuant to necessary means to ensure an adequate level of protection.
Section E. Third Party Sites and Privacy
Section F. Technical Support and Privacy
Information Collected about Technical Support and the Use of that Information
Generally, EleVia’s technical support group can obtain customer contact information via the serial number and registration data it maintains in its customer database. EleVia may use this contact information to respond to support inquiries and/or to request additional information from the customer.Occasionally EleVia must obtain files and/or model information to assist it in diagnosing a customer’s technical support issues. Any information provided will be treated as confidential and will only be used strictly for the purpose of resolving the open issues in question.
EleVia may also elect to share an unidentifiable subset of file information provided by a customer with a licensor of technology that is included in the EleVia product if EleVia considers that appropriate to assist it in diagnosing or resolving a customer problem. EleVia may also request permission from a customer to retain copies of specific customer files in the data set that it uses to conduct regression tests and other tests of later releases of the EleVia software.
EleVia Remote Desktop Access to Servers
In accordance with EleVia’s terms and conditions, customers may be asked to provide Microsoft Remote Desktop Access to servers running EleVia software. The Remote Desktop Web Connection is a high-encryption, Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 5.0 client and uses RSA Security’s RC4 cipher with a key strength of 40-, 56-, or 128-bit, as determined by the computer to which it is connecting. The Remote Desktop Web Connection uses the well-known RDP TCP port (3389) to communicate to the host.Most customers configure their Remote Desktop access so that only connections from EleVia’s IP address are allowed.
EleVia Remote Diagnosis
For those customers with difficult-to-diagnose issues, EleVia uses commercially available online meeting software such as GoToMeeting or WebEx that enables EleVia to view a customer’s computer remotely via the internet in real-time. This functionality is used only when authorized by the customer and while the customer is at the computer. The functionality enhances the customer’s ability to explain and “show” the problem being experienced. EleVia technical support personnel initiate an online meeting with a customer, enabling such personnel to either view or take control of the customer’s system. The customer retains full control of his or her system throughout the session. If at any time during this session the customer wishes to terminate the remote connection, the customer may do so and the EleVia technical support personnel will no longer be able to view or access the customer’s system. EleVia treats all information it receives during a remote support session as confidential and proprietary customer information received for technical support purposes (see Information Collected in Connection with Technical Support and the Use of that Information above).
