If you would prefer to not receive personalized ads based on your browser or device usage, you may generally express your opt-out preference to no longer receive tailored advertisements. Please note that you will continue to see advertisements, but they will no longer be tailored to your interests.

How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals

Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which your web browser communicates. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. We currently do not act in response to these signals. If and when a standard is established, we may revise our policy on responding to these signals.

Information Security

MarcomCentral® uses commercially reasonable efforts to protect the Website and MarcomCentral® Software and to prevent unauthorized access, use, and disclosure of Customer Information. The MarcomCentral® defense-in-depth approach constitutes layers of physical, logical and conceptual security controls for our products, services and the infrastructure that supports our customer’s needs as well as our rapidly evolving enterprise The MarcomCentral® Software multi-tier system architecture governed by industry leading frameworks: National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S.  Privacy Shield, the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Through the platform’s administration tool, our customers are empowered to configure their desired privacy, security and access management policies. The single sign-on (SSO) functionality provides our customers full control of their user community while enforcing their respective password requirements. The architecture of our products leverages security protocols and industry recommended practices such as encryption at rest and in transit. It is not judicious for us to detail every component that makes up our security posture, if you wish to learn more about our information security, risk management and compliance ecosystem, contact us at infosec@marcom.com.

Data transmission over the Internet can’t be guaranteed to be secure, and every system that allows online access is potentially vulnerable to outside attacks from unauthorized third parties. As a result, while MarcomCentral® strives to protect your User and Customer Personal Data, MarcomCentral® can’t and doesn’t guarantee or warrant the security of any User and Customer Personal Data which User transmits to MarcomCentral®, and User does so entirely at User’s own risk.

We are not responsible for the privacy or security practices of any other web sites, and you acknowledge and agree that any visits to or use of such other web sites is entirely at your own risk. You should carefully review the privacy and security practices of the other web sites before you provide such web sites with any of your Customer Personal Data or User Personal Data Information.
