Last Updated Date: 01-09-2012

SIEN provides this Privacy Policy to inform you of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information we receive from users of beamrise.com (the “Site”) and SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE (collectively the “Application”).

SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE is SIEN S.A. proprietary software that provides and Internet browser who facilitates access and use of connected services as (but not limited to) instant messaging, browsing, content usage and sharing, news feed. This Privacy Policy applies only to information that you provide to us through this Site and from your use of the Application. This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time. We will notify you of any material changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on the Site. You are advised to consult this policy regularly for any changes. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms of Service, accessible at:
http://www.beamrise.com/legal/eula/.

As used in this policy, the terms “using” and “processing” information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization or among our affiliates within the United States or internationally.

Information Collection and Use

Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, the Application and features and content relating thereto (together, the “Service”) and to enable users to enjoy the Service.

SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE

The SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE includes an update feature that checks SIEN's servers periodically to ensure that you are running latest version of our browser (which is the most stable, secure and feature-rich version of the SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE).

Like most Web sites, our servers automatically record the page requests made when you visit our sites. These “server logs” typically include your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.

In addition, some SIEN Browser features send limited additional information to SIEN:

Information stored on your computer when you use SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE records useful information about your browsing history on your own computer. This includes:

Delete your browsing history

Information that gets removed when you clear your entire browsing history, the following information is removed from SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE and your computer:

Clear specific items from your browsing history

Clear your browsing history from the address bar

To prevent matches to your browsing history from appearing in the address bar, follow the steps above to clear your entire browsing history.

You can also limit the information SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE saves on your computer by using incognito mode. In this mode, the browser will not store basic browsing history information such as URLs, cached page text, or IP addresses of pages linked from the websites you visit. It will also not store snapshots of pages that you visit or keep a record of your downloads. (This information could still be stored elsewhere on your computer, though.) New cookies received in incognito mode will not be saved after you close your browser or return to normal browsing mode. You can see when you are in incognito mode because the incognito icon appears in the top corner of your browser; in some cases the border of your browser window may also change color.

When you make changes to your browser configuration, such as by bookmarking a web page or changing your settings, this information is also saved. These changes are not affected by incognito mode.

You can choose to have SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE save your passwords for specific websites. Stored passwords can be reviewed in the Personal Stuff tab of the Options dialog box.

Privacy preferences

You can control all your privacy preferences for SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE from the Options dialog, under the Privacy section located at the top of the Under the Hood tab.

COOKIES – SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE related elements

You have complete control when it comes to cookie permissions in SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE. All cookies are allowed by default, but you can adjust this setting. If cookies have been set or blocked on the page you’re viewing, an icon appears at the end of the address bar.

Cookies – SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE Web site beamrise.com and services related elements (excluding the SIEN’S BROWSER BEAMRISE application itself)

Like many websites and services, we use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies for two purposes. First, we utilize persistent cookies to save your username and password for future logins to the Site or Application, if applicable, and to store your user preferences. Second, we utilize session ID cookies to enable certain features of the Site and Application, to better understand how you interact with the Site and Application and to monitor aggregate usage by SIEN users and web traffic routing on the Site. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your computer when you log off from the Site and Application and then close your browser. A cookie does not allow us to obtain any personally identifiable information (such as your real name or address) unless you have specifically provided such information when using the Site or the Application. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Site or all functionality of the Application.

Email

SIEN SA will offer to send an email about SIEN to your friends via our “Invite Your Friends” feature. When you invite your friends they will only receive one invitation email from you. You and your friends will not receive any additional emails from SIEN or any other third party. Your email address and you friends email addresses, when we have them stored in our database, are protected by SIEN by restricting access to the database. If you wish to remove your email address from our database you can do it by clicking the link at the end of the email you received or by writing to support@beamrise.com.

Phishing

Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to SIEN. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your username, password or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the US Federal Trade Commission’s website.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information. We may share aggregated information that does not include Personal Information and we may otherwise disclose Non-Identifying Information with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.

Service Providers. We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related actions (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Site or Application’s features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Site and Application are used. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. SIEN cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of SIEN or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.

Business Transfers. SIEN may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.

Changing or Deleting Your Information

All users who provide Personal Information to SIEN may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information provided to us by contacting us. If you completely delete all such information, then your account may become deactivated. If you would like us to delete your record in our system, please contact us at support@beamrise.com with a request that we delete your Personal Information from our database. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request. You may also uninstall the Application at any time. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.

Security

SIEN is very concerned with safeguarding your information. We employ administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access.

We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via conspicuous posting on this Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.

International Transfer

Your information may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside the United Kingdom and choose to provide information to us, SIEN transfers Personal Information to the United Kingdom and processes it there. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

Links to Other Sites

You will be presented with and have access to links to other websites through your use of our Site and the Application. If you choose to visit an advertiser by “clicking on” a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website. The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.

Our Policy Toward Children

This Site, Application and Service are not directed to children under 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personal Information without their consent, he or she should contact us at contact@beamrise.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our files.
