Ziosoft (Qi Imaging) is committed to ensuring your privacy and protecting the security of your personal information. This Policy covers the following public Ziosoft (Qi Imaging) website: www.ziosoftinc.com (the "Website") - and all online forms (if any) on the Website used to collect personal information. Please note that this Policy applies only to sites maintained by Ziosoft (Qi Imaging) or its affiliates, and not third party sites, whether linked to or from the Website. Moreover, this Policy does not only apply to information collected by Ziosoft (Qi Imaging) offline. In addition, this Policy does not apply to other entities that we do not own or control or persons that are not our employees, agents or within our control. By using the Website, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of this Policy. If you do not agree with any terms or conditions described in this Policy, please exit from the Website.
Collecting Personal Information
You can access our Website without providing us with any personal information. However, Ziosoft (Qi Imaging) may collect personal information in various locations on our Website as more particularly described below. Our primary goal in collecting the information described below is to provide you, the user, with a customized experience on our Website and to deliver better service, products, and more relevant content to our customers, prospective customers, and visitors.
Personal Information We Collect
As more particularly described below, personal information may be collected from you (a) during the recruiting process and (b) exchange of communications relating to our products and services. This information may include your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and/or employment and education history. From time to time we may expand or change the information requested, so this may not be a complete list. We ask that you provide only your own personal information, not personal information concerning anyone else. Personal information may be collected by Ziosoft (Qi Imaging) and/or business partners.
Some of the pages associated with our Website may relate to employment opportunities or human resources. They usually will be titled "Careers" or "Current Opportunities" or will have similar labels or headings clearly indicating the employment-related subject matter (the "Career Pages"). Any personal information that you submit through Careers Pages will be collected in the United States or Japan and will be reviewed by our employees or consultants to evaluate your qualifications and experience for job opportunities in the United States or Japan. Your personal information will not be disclosed to third parties other than third parties who provide services to us. We will (and each of our third party service providers with access to such information will agree with us they will) take any legally required steps to reasonably secure your personal information. We will use your personal information for recruitment purposes, and if you are offered a job or become employed by us, for other employment-related purposes. By submitting information through Careers Pages, you agree that we may use the information for recruitment and employment purposes (including transferring the data to other countries, transferring your information to other companies authorized to perform specific services, and/or other processing relevant to recruitment purposes).
Resumes should include information relevant to your employment history and education (degrees awarded, places worked, positions held, relevant awards, etc.). We ask that you do not disclose sensitive personal characteristics (e.g., gender, height, weight, religion, philosophical or political beliefs, sexual orientation, financial data, marital status, etc.) in your initial resume or letters. Please note that your information will be processed and/or stored in databases in the U.S. and/or Japan. By submitting your resume, you are consenting to the export of your information to Japan or the U.S. for processing and storage.
Except where you instruct us to remove your resume, we will keep the information for other consideration. If you need to update or otherwise make changes to you resume, simply resubmit a new resume. If you wish to have your resume completely removed from our systems, please follow the procedures described in the Opt-Out Provision below.
Use of Personal Information
Unless otherwise described elsewhere in this Policy, we will not disclose any personal information collected from customers, prospective customers, or visitors.
Use by Ziosoft(Qi Imaging)
We use the information you provide so that we may better understand the needs of our customers, prospective customers, and visitors. Specifically, we use your personal information for many purposes, including:
• to apply for employment opportunities at Ziosoft (Qi Imaging);
• to ensure the continued smooth operation of our service;
• to analyze user characteristics and usage patterns in order to better understand how our products and services are used and market them more effectively;
• to communicate with you concerning your account or to send you announcements, and information about our service or product offerings or the offerings of our business partners;
• to prevent or investigate actual or suspected fraud, hacking, infringement, or other misconduct involving our products and services, and/or the Website;
• to respond to inquiries, troubleshoot problems, investigate incidents, and handle complaints; and
• to develop and market to new products and services.
Sharing with Business Partners
We generally do not sell or trade any personal information about our customers, prospects, or visitors to any third parties. We may share, however, aggregated demographic information with our business partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We may also periodically engage in co-marketing activities, where we work with a complementary solution provider to launch a joint marketing program. In these situations, we will only send information to you on behalf of the other; we do not provide your personal information to such partner. We may also enter into business partnerships with other parties to provide specific services. If a user signs up for these services or responds to a particular marketing offer, we may share personal information such as your name or other contact information that is necessary for our business partner to provide these services or get in contact with you.
Finally, in the event Ziosoft (Qi Imaging) combines with another company in the future through a corporate merger, sale, acquisition, liquidation or other similar process, your personal information may be transferred with the business or a part of it, or may be sold as an asset of the business.
Storage of Personal Information and Security
We take reasonable precaution to protect the personal information we collect from customers, prospective customers, and visitors. When users submit personal information via the Website, the information is housed in a secure in-house database. To prevent unauthorized access, loss, or misuse, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the personal information we maintain. Ziosoft (Qi Imaging) uses industry-standard technology, such as firewalls, in an effort to protect the confidentiality of your personal information.
In addition, only employees who need the information to perform their duties are granted access to personally identifiable information. The unauthorized access or use of such information by an employee is prohibited and constitutes grounds for disciplinary action. Additionally, our information management systems are configured in such a way as to block or inhibit employees from accessing information that they have no authority to access.
Furthermore, our trusted vendors and business partners are responsible for processing or handling some of the information that we receive. These vendors and business partners are not authorized to use such information for purposes beyond those specified by us and are required to preserve the confidentiality with which we treat such information.
However, while we strive to protect your personal information, you should know that information sent over the Internet, whether by e-mail or by using one of our on-line forms, is not necessarily secure against interception. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for such interception and cannot guarantee the security of such information.
When we first collect information from you, we will offer you the opportunity to opt-out of having your personal information shared with parties outside of Ziosoft (Qi Imaging) (unless otherwise described in this Policy). In addition, if you do not want Ziosoft (Qi Imaging) to send you e-mail or postal mail about our products and services, you can opt-out at the time of registration or information collection. If, at a later date, you choose to have your name or any other personal information removed from our mailing list, you can do so by emailing email@example.com. Alternatively, you may contact us at:

Generally, you may review, update, correct or delete your personal information collected by the Website. You may also correct factual inaccuracies. To do so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you may contact us at the address set forth in the Opt-Out Provision above.
To have access to your personal information, you must provide proof of identification such as full name, street address, city/state and zip code, and/or information about your recent activity on the Website. We reserve the right to deny access to any user if we believe there is a question about your identity. And if the burden or expense of providing access to your personal information is disproportionate to the risks to your privacy, or if the legitimate rights of others would be violated, we may decide not to provide access to such information. Moreover, we may still retain your information in our files to resolve disputes, and for technical and legal requirements and constraints related to the Website.
We may disclose personal information when required by law, regulation, court order, or in response to a subpoena or litigation discovery request, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process served on us.
Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our Policy, we will post those changes on our Policy page so you are aware of what personal information we collect from customers, prospective customers, and visitors to our Website, and when and how such information is collected, used and safeguarded. You are responsible for periodically checking our Website for changes to this Policy. If at any time we decide to use personal information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will take commercially reasonable measures to obtain e-mail consent from you. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your personal information in this different manner.
While this Policy states our standards for maintenance of personal information and we will make efforts to meet them, we are not in a position to guarantee these standards. There may be factors beyond our control that may result in disclosure of personal information. As a consequence, we disclaim any warranties or representations relating to maintenance or nondisclosure of any personal information collected from customers, prospective customers, or visitors.
