The Internet is an amazing tool. It has the power to change the way we live, and we’re starting to see that potential today. With only a few mouse-clicks, you can follow the news, look up facts, buy goods and services, and communicate with others from around the world. It’s important to SYNKROMEDIA to help our customers retain their privacy when they take advantage of all the Internet has to offer.
Your privacy is important to you and to us. So we’ll protect the information you share with us. To protect your privacy, SYNKROMEDIA follows different principles in accordance with worldwide practices for customer privacy and data protection.
- We won’t sell your name, mail address, phone number, email address or any other information to anyone.
- We’ll use state-of-the-art security measures to protect your information from unauthorized users.
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you fill a form on SYNKROMEDIA.COM or when you download free software, enter a contest, order email newsletters or join a limited-access premium site. We use your Personal Information for four primary purposes:
- To make the site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.
- To help you quickly find software, services or information.
- To help us create content most relevant to you.
- To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information and other new services from SYNKROMEDIA.
If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of SYNKROMEDIA.COM. But you will not be able to access areas that require registration.
If you decide to register, you will be able to select the kinds of information you want to receive from us by subscribing to various services, like our newsletters. If you do not want us to communicate with you about other offers regarding SYNKROMEDIA products, programs, events, or services by email, postal mail, or telephone, you may select the option stating that you do not wish to receive marketing messages from SYNKROMEDIA.
We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You may review and update this information at anytime. You can request modifications to your personal informations by email. Example of personal information’s:
- Personal information you have already given us (first name, last name, email, phone, etc.).
- Tell us whether you want us to send you marketing information, or whether you want third parties to send you their offers.
- Sign up for electronic newsletters about our services and products.
- Once you register, you won’t need to do it again. Wherever you go on SYNKROMEDIA.COM, your information stays with you.
SYNKROMEDIA has taken strong measures to protect the security of your personal information and to ensure that your choices for its intended use are honored. We take strong precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
When you fill a form or access your personal account information, you’re utilizing secure server software SSL, which encrypts your personal information before it’s sent over the Internet. SSL is one of the safest encryption technologies available.
Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your permission, except under conditions explained above. Inside the company, data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access. Your information may be stored and processed in CANADA or any other country where SYNKROMEDIA, its subsidiaries, affiliates or agents are located.
You also have a significant role in protecting your information. No one can see or edit your personal information without knowing your username and password, so do not share these with others.
NOTICE TO PARENTS
Parents or guardians: we want to help you guard your children’s privacy. We encourage you to talk to your children about safe and responsible use of their Personal Information while using the Internet.
Every registered customer has a unique personal profile. Each profile is assigned a unique personal identification number, which helps us ensure that only you can access your profile.
When you register, we create your profile, assign a personal identification number, then send this personal identification number back to your hard drive in the form of a cookie, which is a very small bit of code. This code is uniquely yours. It is your passport to seamless travel across SYNKROMEDIA.COM, allowing you to download free software, order free newsletters, and visit premium sites without having to fill out registration forms with information you’ve already provided. Even if you switch computers, you won’t have to re-register – just use your Registration ID to identify yourself.
WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION YOU SHARE
When you join us, you provide us with your contact information, including your name and email address.

Your credit card informations are transmitted by secure protocol to our payment processors, but are not saved on our servers.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
