The type of information we gather online is summarized into three general categories. The following explains why we collect this information and how we use it.
To use certain features of our site, such as placing online orders, uploading files or accessing certain online content, you must register with us so that we know who you are and how best to meet your needs. Registration is also necessary in order to set up your unique log-in ID and password. Registration may require the entry of your name, your company name, mailing address, telephone number, email address and/or other personal identifying information. This personal identifying information will not be sold, rented or shared with third parties for telemarketing or other purposes unrelated to our business. We will use it to fulfill your orders, provide services you request, and communicate with you regarding goods and services offered by our company. We will disclose personal identifying information to our affiliates, partners and vendors only as necessary to provide the goods and services which you have requested from us.
We keep track of the pages visited by each user of our site. Our Web server can automatically collect some information about you when you request pages from our server, including your IP address. Your IP address is a number that is used by Internet servers to uniquely identify your computer so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you. We aggregate this data with data regarding the pages visited by other users, in order to track overall visitor traffic patterns. We use this information to improve our site by making it more responsive to the needs and preferences of our users. This information does not identify you personally. On occasion we may provide this aggregate information to vendors, investors, potential advertisers, or news agencies to demonstrate the amount of interest in the site and to help us plan for technical infrastructure requirements.
We understand that our customers are concerned about security on the Internet, and are committed to providing a secure, friendly site which customers other interested persons can visit and utilize without undue concern over security. Our Web server is designed for Internet commerce, and employs industry standard methods of protecting the security of information received from and sent to visitors to our site. We also employ industry standard methods to shield our web server and its data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. We limit access to your personal identifying information to those employees or other persons who we believe need to view that information in order to provide our goods or services to you or otherwise perform their job functions. However, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. Therefore, we do not warrant or ensure the security of any information sent to us online. If a password is required to log into our site in order to access content, place orders or perform other functions, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential.
Our site is not intended for use by children. We do not knowingly solicit data from children, and we do not knowingly market to children. If you are a minor, you are authorized to use our site only with the active assistance of a parent, guardian or other adult.
We will divulge your private information if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so by law or in the event disclosure is reasonably necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected illegal activities, actual fraud, potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. If served with a subpoena, search warrant, or court order, we may be compelled to provide the required information. We are not obligated to provide you with advance or other notice of the existence of the subpoena, search warrant or court order, or of our compliance.
