Safeguarding and Securing the Data

Devana Solutions is committed to securing and keeping your data confidential. We have implemented appropriate security measures preventing your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed.

While we have endeavored to create a secure and reliable website for users, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from the website or via e-mail cannot be guaranteed.

Our Cookie Policy 

Cookies and tokens are pieces of data sent to your browser when you visit a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies and tokens may store user preferences and other information. For example, cookies can store your session information for easy log-in to a website or platform, or your language or user interface customization preferences or may allow websites to record your browsing activities (for example, number of page views, number of visitors, and time spent on each page). Once you agree to allow our website to use cookies, you also agree to use the data it collects regarding your online behavior. 

We use session ID and persistent cookies, and tokens. Session ID cookies and tokens are usually deleted when you log out of a service or close your browser or expire after a short time. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for a set time or until you delete it. For example, a persistent cookie will record that you responded to our cookie notification message when you arrived at our website and not bother you again with that pop-up for a certain period. 

The data we collect from cookies is used to customize our website to your needs. After we use the data for statistical analysis, the data is completely removed from our systems. Please note that cookies do not allow us to gain control of your computer in any way. They are strictly used to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not so that we can provide you with a better experience. 

If you want to disable cookies, you can do it by accessing your internet browser’s settings per the instructions in the links below. 

Other Technologies 

We may use a tracking technique that employs embedded URLs to allow the use of our online platforms. Embedded URLs allow limited information to follow you as you navigate our platforms but are not associated with personal data and are not used beyond the session. 

We may use widgets, which are interactive mini-programs that run on our site to provide specific services from another company (e.g., links to bookmarked sites), along with buttons or other tools that link to other company’s services (e.g., a “Like” button or third-party map). The widget, button, or tool may collect and automatically send personal data, such as your email address, or other information (such as your browser information or IP address), to a third party. Cookies may also be set or used by the widgets, buttons, or tools to enable them to function properly or for other purposes, which may include advertising. Information collected or used by a widget, button, or tool, including cookie settings and preferences, is governed by the privacy policy of the company that created it. 

We may use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your phone. 

Links to Other Websites 

Our website contains links that lead to other websites. If you click these links, Devana Solutions is not responsible for your data and privacy protection. Visiting those websites is not governed by this privacy policy agreement. Make sure to read the privacy policy documentation of the website you go to from our website. 

Fair Information Practices Under the GDPR Standard 

Devana Solutions agrees to adopt and adhere to the fair information and transparency practices found in the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (also known as the “GDPR”). Whether a resident of the EU or not, we agree to the following rights for personal information held by Devana Solutions: 

  1. You may request, subject to our legal obligations and other legitimate interests, that we not share your personal information with third parties. 
  2. You may request a copy of the personal information we currently hold about you and direct us to correct this information as necessary. 
  3. You may request that we delete all personal information we currently hold about you, subject to our legal obligations and other legitimate interests. 
  4. You may lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if we are unable to resolve your data protection complaints. 

To exercise any of these rights, you may contact us using the contact information supplied in the “Contact Us” section of this website. We will respond to requests as soon as and to the extent reasonably and technically practicable. 

Children’s Privacy

Under Age 16

Our Services and Site are not directed at children under 16 years of age, and we do not knowingly collect or receive personal information from them. If we learn that we have received personal information from a child who is under 16, we will delete the data. If you believe that we have received personal information from a child under the age of 16, you may contact us at 877.338.2622.

Under Age 18

Minors under 18 years of age may have the personal information that they have provided to Devana Solutions through the website deleted by sending an email to requesting deletion. Please note that, while we make reasonable efforts to comply with such requests, deletion of your personal information does not ensure complete and comprehensive removal of that data from all systems.

Response to “Do Not Track” Signals

Some Internet browsers include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” signals. Since uniform standards for “Do Not Track” signals have not yet been adopted, Devana Solutions does not process or respond to “Do Not Track” signals.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy may be revised from time to time as we add new features and services, as laws change, and as industry privacy and security best practices evolve. We display an effective date on the policy in the upper left corner of this Privacy Policy so that it will be easier for you to know when there has been a change. If we make any change to this Privacy Policy regarding use or disclosure of Personal Information, we will provide advance notice on the website. Small changes or changes that do not significantly affect individual privacy interests may be made at any time and without prior notice.
