Privacy Policy

Here we describe the type of data we collect on Maxwell GeoSystems (MGS) sites and applications to give you a better experience, and to build a better product.

Many data analysts and digital marketing managers are very interested to learn how they can analyse customer data to understand how their clients act and react. That's why they collect data on their behaviour. Here we describe the type of data we collect on Maxwell GeoSystems (MGS) sites and applications to give you a better experience, and to build a better product.

An Internet protocol (“IP”) address is the unique number assigned to your server or Internet Service Provider (“ISP”). Maxwell GeoSystems may track such IP addresses for system administration, to report aggregate information, site tracking, to prevent its servers from being abused and for other uses described in this Privacy Policy.

Like most website operators, Maxwell GeoSystems collects non-personally-identifiable information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Maxwell GeoSystem's purpose in collecting non-personally identifiable information is to better understand how Maxwell GeoSystems’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Maxwell GeoSystems may release non-personally-identifiable information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Maxwell GeoSystems also collects potentially personally-identifiable information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Maxwell GeoSystems does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifiable information, as described below.

You may also contact us [email protected] at any time to let us know that you no longer wish to receive further marketing emails. Upon request, we will provide an individual with access to identifying information that we have collected about them (provided that they have given adequate proof of identity). MGS also offer individuals the ability to have inaccuracies corrected within their contact information. You may also request deletion of your personal information. We will honour requests as required by law and subject to our business and legal needs to retain your data.
