This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for our website located at www.signingedge.com. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:
- What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
- What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
- The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
- How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. We, however, may share that information with other providers for the sole purpose of enabling us to provide the highest quality service to you.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to arrange a sign language interpreter.
Your Access to and Control Over Information Provided on this Website
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:
- See what data we have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data we have about you.
- Have us delete any data we have about you.
- Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Signing Edge only grants access to personally identifiable information to individuals who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service). The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment and protected by anti-virus surveillance software that is periodically updated from time to time to ensure the most up to date protection.
New Sign Language Interpreter Requests
We request information from you on our request form for prospective clients that have not used Signing Edge before. To request a sign language interpreter from us, you must provide contact information (like name and address) and financial information (like name of financial contact person and billing addresses). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your requests. It will also be used to grant access to our on-line interpreting schedule service through our partnership with Vineya. If we have trouble processing a request, we’ll use this information to contact you.
We partner with another service provider, Vineya, to provide on-line interpreter scheduling services. This is provided as a convenience for our clients to ensure that they can have a record of their request automatically made and to ensure that we do not miss important information that can enable us to provide high quality services. When a Signing Edge client schedules an interpreter through this interface portal, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for Vineya’s interpreting scheduling software to be able to ensure that our interpreters are scheduled appropriately and in line with your request. Vineya is not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing online interpreter scheduling services.
From time-to-time our site requests information via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site as well as improving the services that we provide to our clients.
