Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technologies

As you navigate through and interact with our Website, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns, including:

  • Details of your visits to our Website, including traffic data, location data, logs, and other communication data and the resources that you access and use on the Website.
  • Information about your computer and internet connection, including your IP address, operating system, and browser type.

We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking).  Third party ad network providers, advertisers, sponsors and/or traffic measurement services may use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (including clear GIFs), Flash locally shared objects and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content to you. These third-party cookies and other technologies are governed by each third party’s specific privacy policy, and not this Privacy Policy.

We also use automated devices and applications, such as Google Analytics, to evaluate the use of our websites and apps and the services we provide. We use these tools to gather information about users to help us improve our services, performance and user experiences. These analytics providers may use cookies and other technologies to perform their services and may combine the information that they collect about you on our websites with other information that they have collected. This Policy does not cover such third parties’ use of the data.

Third party ad networks may be members of either the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or About Ads-Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAI”). If they are members and you do not want to receive targeted advertisements from these third-party ad networks, you may opt out. Information as to member companies, the practices of such third-party ad networks and your choices regarding having information used by these companies, including how to opt out, can be found at either: http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp for NAI members or http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ for DAI members. Information on how to opt out of the use of your information by DoubleClick is available at http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/  and information on how to opt out of Google Analytics is available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Opting out of one or more NAI or DAI members means that only those particular members will no longer deliver targeted content or ads to you. It does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content or ads on our websites or other non-United websites. If your browser is configured to reject cookies when you visit one of the above referenced opt-out pages and then you erase your cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, your NAI or DAI opt-out may no longer be active.

The information we collect automatically is statistical data and does not include personal information, but we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties. It helps us to improve our Website and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to:

  • Estimate our audience size and usage patterns.

Location of Your information/Data Transfer/Notice to Non-US Persons

We may transfer, store, and process information that we collect about you, as described in this Policy, in the United States, which may not provide the same level of protection for your personal information as your home country. In addition, we may further transfer your information outside the United States for the purposes described in this Policy. By submitting any personal information or by using the Website and without limitation to any other rights or obligations we have, you consent to such transfer to, and processing in, the United States and these other countries, and acknowledge that your information may be subject to access by law enforcement and other government entities, including courts and tribunals, in accordance with laws applicable in those jurisdictions.

Where personal information that we collect is transferred to and processed in the United States or anywhere else outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) for the purposes described in this Policy, we will take steps to ensure that the information receives the same level of protection as if it remained within the EEA, including entering into data transfer agreements, using the EU Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses, or by relying on certification schemes such as the EU – US Privacy Shield. You may have a right to details of the mechanisms under which your data is transferred outside the EEA.

Storing Data

We retain personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the transactions you have requested or other purposes to which you have consented, or for other necessary purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes and enforcing our agreements.  Because these factors vary for different types of personal data, actual retention periods may vary.  The criteria we use to determine the appropriate retention periods include:

  • How long is the personal data needed to perform the function or fulfill the purpose for which it is relevant? This is the baseline for most data retention periods.
  • Do users expect that we will retain the personal data until they affirmatively remove it? For example, if a user is able to directly access, edit or remove the personal data at any time, we may maintain the data until the user affirmatively removes it.
  • Is the personal data of a sensitive type? If so, a shortened data retention period will generally apply.
  • Has the user provided consent for a longer retention period? If so, we will retain the data in accordance with the user’s consent.
  • Are we subject to a legal, contractual or similar obligation to retain the personal data? If so, we will retain the data in accordance with our obligations.

Choices, Access, and Correction of Information

Subject to certain exemptions, and in some cases dependent upon the processing activity we are undertaking, you have certain rights in relation to your personal information. These rights may include the right to:

  • Access personal information
  • Rectify / erase personal information
  • Restrict the processing of your personal information
  • Transfer your personal information
  • Object to the processing of personal information
  • Object to how we use your personal information for direct marketing purposes
  • Obtain a copy of personal information safeguards used for transfers outside your jurisdiction

Roeslein & Associates, Inc. Statement on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

This statement comprises the slavery and human trafficking statement of Roeslein & Associates, Inc. in accordance with Section 54, Part 6 of the United Kingdom’s Modern Slavery Act 2015. Roeslein is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities, and to ensuring that its supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

Roeslein expects its vendors and suppliers to operate with the high principles and in compliance with employment laws and regulations around the globe, including law regarding equal opportunity, child labor, freedom of association, forced or compulsory labor, and workplace health and safety laws. Roeslein does not tolerate noncompliance with these laws and regulations, and the company will not support or engage in dealings with those whom it believes to be in material violation of any such laws and regulations.

With respect to human trafficking and slavery, Roeslein has not verified product supply chain practices, audit supplier compliance, require supplier certification, maintain separate accountability standards, or provide training for its management and employees, but does provide general training with respect to the company’s standard policies and practices.  Roeslein is unaware of any parts of its business or supply chain that present an unreasonable risk of slavery or human trafficking taking place.  In the coming year, Roeslein will take reasonable steps to investigate any complaints it receives of alleged human trafficking and modern slavery within the company or within its supply chain.  No such complaints have been received up to the date of this statement.

This statement has been approved by Roeslein’s Board of Directors and will be reviewed and published annually. This statement is for the financial year ended December 31, 2018.
