Statement of Commitment
Information is one of the most powerful and valuable assets in business today. Cortese Tree Specialists promises to safeguard the information you share with us as if it were our own.
What Information Do We Collect?
The personal information we receive from you is voluntary. The general information you provide helps us build a better website in terms of functionality and content. With your permission, we may occasionally notify you of news at Cortese that may be of interest to you.
The personal information that we collect in the areas like your local office section directly relates to the application or task that you have asked us to perform, such as providing a service estimate request. As with the general information, we'll use what you have provided to continue to build better service and business overall.
Certain visitors to Cortese's website choose to interact with Cortese in ways that require Cortese to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Cortese gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a Cortese account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Cortese are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Cortese collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Cortese. Cortese does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
You may opt-out of NAI Members’ online behavioral advertising cookies by using the Network Advertising Initiative's (NAI's) multi-cookie opt-out mechanism at: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp. These opt-outs are valid only for the computer and browser combination used to opt-out. Clearing cookies will remove these opt-outs since they stored in cookies. If you opt-out of NAI third-party advertising network, you will no longer receive ads based on your browsing history from that network. You may, however, continue to receive generalized online advertising.
Cortese has security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the personally identifiable information under its control. Cortese employs reasonable security measures consistent with standard industry practice to help protect against public access to personally identifiable and account activity information collected on and used by Cortese at this webpage. When you submit sensitive information via the webpage, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Distribution of Information in Cortese
The general and specific information that we collect will be shared in our organization to perform the activities you've asked us to do. In addition, individual data will be aggregated and analyzed to understand customer trends and requirements, so that we can continue to provide a service that is reliable, responsive and efficient.
Third-Party Distribution of Information
Cortese will never sell, rent, trade or otherwise distribute your personal information to any other organization unless compelled by law or legal process. We may, however, disclose contact information to our agents for the purpose of performing services on behalf of Cortese. To protect our customers' privacy, we work only with companies that agree to maintain strong confidentiality protections and prohibit them from using the information we provide for any other purpose. We do not permit these companies to sell or otherwise distribute the information we give them to any other third-party.

Choice and Consent
The more we know about you, the better our ability to serve you and provide products and services that are of real value. Our website is a voluntary information channel that is open to you at all times. You always have a choice regarding the tools that you use and the information that you provide. We don't ask questions for the sake of asking questions, but do so because it is pertinent to our ability to serve and know you better.
