INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable)
Although we don’t currently provide aggregate information to third-parties, Contegix may from time to time share aggregated demographic information with partners and providers in order to customize the Contegix website, expand the business, or to market our services to other individuals. Our partners are other companies with which we have agreed to promote and build brands together. We do not link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Contegix will only share personally identifiable information with service providers necessary to deliver Contegix’s services or to track the requests coming in to the Contegix website. Currently, this information is only shared with our CRM application, which we use to track sales requests. Third parties are not permitted to retain personally identifiable information for their own use.
Contegix utilizes various third-party data management services, such as online sales tracking and CRM tools. Contegix places personally identifiable information in these services. Third-party service providers do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes.
Other Third Parties
Contegix maintains partnerships with several companies in order to provide our full-service catalog. When responding to sales inquiries or other requests for information from Contegix, we may share personally identifiable information with these partners in order to facilitate our response. Third-parties and partners do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes. To opt-out from Contegix providing your personally identifiable information to third-parties, visitors can click the opt-out checkbox on the “Contact Us” form.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our website.
We provide the opportunity to “opt-out” of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes. If you do not wish your personally identifiable information to be stored on Contegix systems, or provided to third-parties, Contegix will remove your information from these systems. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of your request. We respond to all inquiries within 30 days of receipt.

As is true of most websites, we and our third-party tracking-utility partners gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
We and our marketing partners, affiliates, or analytics or service providers, use technologies such as cookies, and similar technologies to analyze trends, administer the website, tracking users’ movements around the website, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual and aggregated basis.
This section informs Users about the technologies that help this Website to achieve the purposes described below. Such technologies allow the Owner to access and store information (for example by using a Cookie) or use resources (for example by running a script) on a User’s device as they interact with this Website.
For simplicity, all such technologies are defined as "Trackers" within this document – unless there is a reason to differentiate.
For example, while Cookies can be used on both web and mobile browsers, it would be inaccurate to talk about Cookies in the context of mobile apps as they are a browser-based Tracker. For this reason, within this document, the term Cookies is only used where it is specifically meant to indicate that particular type of Tracker.
Some of the purposes for which Trackers are used may also require the User's consent. Whenever consent is given, it can be freely withdrawn at any time following the instructions provided in this document.
This Website uses Trackers managed directly by the Owner (so-called “first-party” Trackers) and Trackers that enable services provided by a third-party (so-called “third-party” Trackers). Unless otherwise specified within this document, third-party providers may access the Trackers managed by them.
The validity and expiration periods of Cookies and other similar Trackers may vary depending on the lifetime set by the Owner or the relevant provider. Some of them expire upon termination of the User’s browsing session.
In addition to what’s specified in the descriptions within each of the categories below, Users may find more precise and updated information regarding lifetime specification as well as any other relevant information – such as the presence of other Trackers - in the linked privacy policies of the respective third-party providers or by contacting the Owner.
This Website uses so-called “technical” Cookies and other similar Trackers to carry out activities that are strictly necessary for the operation or delivery of the Service. This Website also uses Trackers to provide a personalized user experience by improving the quality of preference management options, and by enabling interaction with external networks and platforms.
How to Manage Cookies
There are various ways to manage Tracker related preferences and to provide and withdraw consent, where relevant:
Users can manage preferences related to Trackers from directly within their own device settings, for example, by preventing the use or storage of Trackers.
Additionally, whenever the use of Trackers is based on consent, Users can provide or withdraw such consent by setting their preferences within the cookie notice or by updating such preferences accordingly via the relevant consent-preferences widget, if available.
It is also possible, via relevant browser or device features, to delete previously stored Trackers, including those used to remember the User’s initial consent.
Other Trackers in the browser’s local memory may be cleared by deleting the browsing history.
Consequences of denying consent
Users are free to decide whether or not to grant consent. However, please note that Trackers help this Website to provide a better experience and advanced functionalities to Users (in line with the purposes outlined in this document). Therefore, in the absence of the User's consent, the Owner may be unable to provide related features.
Since the use of third-party Trackers through this Website cannot be fully controlled by the Owner, any specific references to third-party Trackers are to be considered indicative. In order to obtain complete information, Users are kindly requested to consult the privacy policies of the respective third-party services listed in this document.
Manage and Control your Browser Cookies

Please note that if you use your browser settings to modify or block all cookies, you may not be able to access parts of Contegix.com and your user experience will be severely degraded.
