A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a website to the hard drive of your computer.

A cookie can't read information off your hard disk or contained in files such as cookies from other websites.
To keep the playing field level, we want you to know that there are internet tools that are designed to let you visit websites incognito. Many such tools are built into your web browser.

What Site Visitor Information Does GoldenHelix.com Collect?
The information we learn from visitors helps us continually improve our information offering and the ease of use of our site. The types of information we collect is usually defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable.
Anonymous information refers to data that cannot be tied back to a specific individual. Golden Helix collects some information each time a visitor comes to our site, so we can improve the overall quality of the visitor's online experience. For example, Golden Helix collects the visitor's IP address, browser, and platform type (e.g., a Chrome browser on a Windows platform). Gathering this data helps us to learn what browsers we need to support. Other anonymous information helps us determine what sections of the website are most popular and how many visitors come to our site(s). You do not have to register with Golden Helix before we can collect this anonymous information.
Personally identifiable information refers to data that tells us specifically who you are (e.g., your name and postal address). You are only required to provide such information if you want to take advantage of optional services or content provided through our website(s).
Golden Helix collects personal information in the following ways from different parts of its website(s):
Your Request(s) for Information: You are sharing personally identifiable information, including your name, e-mail and mailing address, with us when you request information regarding products or services, including requesting product pricing or an evaluation of the software. You are also sharing personally identifiable information with us when you request to access certain content from our website or register for a webcast.
Other Registration: You may be asked for personal information when registering for specific services. For example, if you subscribe to an e-mail newsletter, you will be asked to provide your e-mail address.
Software Access: In order to access and use certain Golden Helix software products, you will be asked to create a login account and register using your personal information.
You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to download, use, or upgrade our software, or access certain content from our Web Site. The information you provide us is used to help us respond to information requests, help in downloading, improving our scientific information offering, and customer support follow-up.
Additionally, if you receive e-mail communications from Golden Helix, we sometimes receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from Golden Helix to help us make e-mails more useful and interesting. If you do not want to receive promotional e-mail or other mail from us, please follow the process to "opt-out" indicated below.
Golden Helix’s Use of Personal Information
Golden Helix will only use the personal information you have provided to register, license and electronically deliver software; respond to information requests; or to notify you about important product updates, technical support items, and special offers that should be of interest to you.
We do not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. Golden Helix reserves the right to disclose any pertinent customer information to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.
Accessing and Correcting Your Information
To gain access to personal information about you collected online, and to keep it accurate, complete and current, or to request deletion, you may contact us using any method convenient to you. Where offered, you also may update personal information about you online or inside the software by modifying information that you previously have entered into forms or data fields on our websites.
In some cases, where we are required to retain information by law or regulation, or to continue to manage a service you have requested, or to ensure that we honor your preferences, or for other necessary business purposes, we may not be able to delete certain personal information about you. Where permitted by law, your ability to access and correct personal information may be limited where access and correction would: inhibit Golden Helix's ability to comply with a legal or ethical obligation, inhibit Golden Helix's ability to investigate, make or defend legal claims, result in disclosure of personal information about a third party, result in breach of a contract or disclosure of trade secrets or other proprietary business information belonging to Golden Helix or a third party.
Golden Helix values your privacy and our marketing practices follow applicable legislation, including CAN-SPAM Act (USA), European Union Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications, and CASL (Canada).
At any time you may "opt-out" of having your information used for purposes not directly related to our site or not directly related to your business transaction(s) with Golden Helix, including if you wish to not receive unsolicited e-mail marketing materials from us. To "opt-out", you may contact us using any of the following methods:
Mail: Golden Helix Inc, 203 Enterprise Blvd Ste 1, Bozeman, MT 59718 – USA
When you contact us, you must include the e-mail address(es) you wish to "opt-out". We will process all requests to "opt-out" within 10-days of receipt.
If you have received a promotional e-mail from us, you may also click the 'unsubscribe' link located in the e-mail, in addition to contacting us in the methods indicated above.
Even if you have chosen to "opt-out" of promotional e-mails, you may still receive occasional e-mails from Golden Helix if you have a business relationship.
