We reserve the right to disclose personal information, to the full extent permitted by law, to prevent harm to Chronos or others.

7. Cookies. "Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Certain portions of our Site may utilize cookies only to identify the customer, not to identify any specific customer traits. This allows us to maintain consistency in the shopping basket and enable a more pleasant shopping experience. A cookie cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it.

8. Site Usage Analysis. We store information that we collect through log files (described below) to help us understand how people use our Site. This anonymous information is used primarily to help us improve the experience of the users on the Site. A third party service provider may assist Chronos in analyzing and using the log files. Anonymous information can be used and disclosed by Chronos for any purpose.

Log files record Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track a customer's movement in the aggregate and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

9. Software Version Checking. Some of our Software has been equipped with a version checking feature. Upon launching the Software, the version of the Software you are running is captured and sent to our webserver. It is compared to the most current shipping version and if an update is available, the Software will notify you of how to obtain it. No personally identifiable information is sent to our server, only information from the Software itself.

10. Business Transitions. In the event Chronos goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company or sale of a portion of its assets, our users' personal information may be part of the assets transferred. Users will be notified of a change of ownership or control of their personal information via notice on the Site. If, as a result of the business transition, your personally identifiable information will be used in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection, you will be given a choice consistent with the section of this Policy on Opting Out.

11. Links. This Site contains links to other sites. Chronos is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.

12. Security. Chronos offers a secure server for order processing. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all the order information sent to us. Chronos takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information submitted by users of our Site. However, given the nature of the Internet and the fact that network security measures are not infallible, we cannot guarantee the security of personal information submitted by users of the Site. We disclaim any warranty, express or implied, that any such security precautions will not be broken, violated or in some way compromised.

13. Notification of Changes. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will prominently post a notice on the main page and other pages to alert you about the change.
