Safety Evolution Policies

Advertising Policy

What is the purpose of this policy?
This policy is intended to provide guidance on advertising and is intended to ensure that all advertising is consistent with Safety Evolution's values, strategic directions and image.

What is meant by advertising?
The terms "advertising" and "advertisement" refer to the space used to promote an event, product or service on the Safety Evolution's web site/in publications or the content of and attachments to any e-mail sent by the Safety Evolution in the form of an "e-blast." This policy applies to both paid and complimentary advertising.

What kind of advertising is not acceptable?
Safety Evolution will not place advertising with organizations that are deemed incompatible with our professional image, values and strategic directions. Further, we have final approval for all advertisements prior to distribution or publication and reserve the right to unilaterally omit or cancel, following publication, those that violate the advertising standards outlined in this policy.

Advertisements will not be deceptive, offensive or fraudulent in nature. No advertisement should be presented in a format or style that conceals its commercial intent.

What else should I know?
Publication or dissemination of any advertisement does not constitute an endorsement. It is forbidden to give the impression that an event, service or product is endorsed or associated with Safety Evolution in anyway if such endorsement has not been given in writing.

The Safety Evolution logo will not appear on any advertising without prior permission. 

In accordance with the privacy policy, we will not lease, sell or otherwise distribute our any client information without prior authorization.

Customer Satisfaction Policy

  • We will strive at all times to exceed expectations, in the quality of our products and services and in our level of customer care.
  • We will always respect confidentiality before, during and after all projects.
  • We always ensure that our clients' expectations are realistic, achievable and clearly understood by both parties, from the outset.

  • We are always available to clients around the clock on any day of the week, for any reason whatsoever.
  • We make every attempt to respond to voice mails, texts and e-mails as soon as we receive them.
  • Where appropriate (particularly in Safety Program development & implementation projects) we operate a system of 'sign offs' at regular stages. This ensures that there is no need for unexpected changes later in the process, keeping costs to a minimum.
  • We aim to ensure that our clients fully understand what we may need from them in the way of support, information, material, or resources.
  • What our clients perceive matters! We will seek and will act on client feedback during and after a project.

Privacy Policy

  • We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can't stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don't store personal information unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Safety Evolution collects non-personally-identifying 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. Safety Evolution's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Safety Evolution's visitors use its website. From time to time, Safety Evolution may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Safety Evolution also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Safety Evolution only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Safety Evolution's websites choose to interact with Safety Evolution in ways that require Safety Evolution to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Safety Evolution gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Safety Evolution – by purchasing training or services for example are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Safety Evolution collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Safety Evolution. Safety Evolution does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics
Safety Evolution may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, Safety Evolution does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Safety Evolution discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Safety Evolution's behalf or to provide services available at Safety Evolution's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Safety Evolution's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Safety Evolution will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Safety Evolution discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Safety Evolution believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Safety Evolution, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Safety Evolution website and have supplied your email address, Safety Evolution may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Safety Evolution and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Safety Evolution takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Safety Evolution uses cookies to help Safety Evolution identify and track visitors, their usage of Safety Evolution website, and their website access preferences. Safety Evolution visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Safety Evolution's websites, with the drawback that certain features of Safety Evolution's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers
If Safety Evolution, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Safety Evolution goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Safety Evolution may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Safety Evolution may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Safety Evolution's sole discretion. Safety Evolution encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a WordPress.com account, you should also check your blog's dashboard for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
