International Users, Choice of Law and Venue
This Site is controlled, operated and administered by SICI from its offices within the Republic of the Philippines. SICI makes no representation that materials in this site are appropriate or available for use at other locations outside of the Philippines and access to them from territories where their contents are illegal is prohibited. If you access this Site from a location outside of the Philippines, you are responsible for compliance with all local laws. These Terms of Service shall be governed by the laws of the Republic of the Philippines.
These Terms of Service also constitute the entire agreement between SICI and you with respect to your use of the Site. Any cause of action you may have with respect to your use of the Site must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises at the proper court sitting in Makati City, Philippines, to the exclusion of all other tribunals. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any of the herein provisions or portions thereof, to be unenforceable, such provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent under herein Terms of Service, and the remainder thereof shall continue in full force and effect.
It is SICI’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information it may collect while operating its website.
Like most website operators, SICI 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. SICI’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand SICI’s visitors’ behavior, when using its website. From time to time, SICI may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
SICI also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on SICI’s posts. SICI only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below (under Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information), 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 SICI’s websites choose to interact with SICI in ways that require SICI to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that SICI gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with SICI are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, SICI collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SICI. SICI does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below (under Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information). Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
SICI may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. SICI may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SICI does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below (under Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information).
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
SICI discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations (i) who have the legitimate need to know that information in order to process it on SICI’s behalf or to provide services available at SICI’s websites, and (ii) 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 SICI’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SICI 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, SICI discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SICI believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SICI, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an SICI website and have supplied your email address, SICI 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 SICI and our products. SICI primarily uses its various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so SICI expects to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send SICI a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), it reserves the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SICI takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If SICI, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that SICI 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 SICI may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
