RIM TEC INC. (“Rim Tec,” “us,” “we” or “our”) has created this web site privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) as part of our commitment to fair information practices and the protection of the privacy and security of the users (“you” or “your”) of our website (the “Site”), and to advise you about how we protect your personal information. We urge you to read this Privacy Policy carefully. This Privacy Policy applies to our corporate Site. There are significant differences in the personal or private information Rim Tec may collect in the operation of its SaaS product offering – the “FiREapps Service” – for which we have a separate policy called the “FiREapps Service Privacy Policy.” You may access that policy here. This Privacy Policy supplements but does not amend or alter any separate Terms of Use for the Site. This Privacy Policy is not intended to and will not alter any separate signed subscription agreement that you or your employer may have with us for use and access to the FiREapps Service. We reserve the right, without notice, to add to, change, update or modify this Privacy Policy, simply by posting such change on the Site and amending the “last updated” reference at the bottom of this Privacy Policy. Any such change will be effective upon posting on the Site. Rim Tec is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
