By “personal information” we mean information that directly identifies you or your business, such as your name, address, or email address. In this Policy, “we” and “our” means Infotech and “you” and “your” means any person who visits our websites, uses our mobile applications, or uses our web applications.
The charts below show the data that we collect and identify how we use that data. The categories are defined as:
Shared with Third Party
We share the data collected with third parties. For example your personal information is necessarily transmitted: in cases of bid submission over the Internet (you transmit your bid and identifying information to the agency to which you bid); in cases of posting or responding to solicitations inside the Small Business Network (you submit business contact information that is viewable by others); or when an agency develops a list of those that have downloaded plans from the Plan Room (the publishing agency will have access to your business contact information, and may or may not publish that list themselves). Additionally, sometimes certain personal information may be shared with those agencies via phone, email, or electronic transmission for business purposes during troubleshooting or other such activities essential to the operation of the Infotech Sites or Services. If you use an Infotech mobile device application, information that you disclose voluntarily which identifies your mobile device will be collected, but will only be disclosed to those to whom you have voluntarily provided that information
We resell the data collected.
