Security and Privacy
Structured’s website and social media platforms (e.g. Twitter and LinkedIn) use reasonable commercial methods and security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the data under our control. We store the data collected in a database in a secure environment protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.

This data provides Structured with general statistics pertaining to the efficacy and public interest for specific pages within our websites. We use this information to gauge visitor traffic to areas of our sites and determine how we might improve user experience.
Structured’s cookies do not collect private, personally identifiable information such as your name or email address. That information is collected only when you complete and submit a form on our website or voluntarily comment on a social media post. Aside from web forms and social media platforms, Structured collects personal information from you when you send us an email, register for an event or training class, work with us via a professional service interaction, and through product resale transactions.

These purposes include contacting you (via email, phone, etc.) in an effort to respond to a request or to provide a service or product, and to notify you of Structured-sponsored events and other Structured-related activities. Structured may also contact you with surveys or email messages in order to conduct research about your opinion of current services or to inform you of new services that may be offered.

On occasion, we post customer testimonials on our website.

Cookies and Similar Technologies
Client-side cookies (small text files placed on your device) verify login status linked directly with website use. A primary purpose for cookies is to provide users with convenience – for example, telling a web server that you have returned to a specific page. If you personalize pages, or register for something online, a cookie helps vendors like Structured recall your specific information on subsequent visits. The information you previously provided is retrieved, enabling easy use of the customized features. There are a variety of tools to control cookies and similar technologies, including browser controls to block and delete cookies, and controls from some third-party analytics service providers to opt out of data collection through web beacons and similar technologies. If a user rejects the cookie, he or she may still use our sites; however, the user may be unable to access all areas of our sites.
