What Information We Collect
The information we collect on our Site generally falls into the following two categories: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Personally Identifiable Information:
This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. The Personally Identifiable Information we collect when you use our Site may include your name, mailing address, phone number, e-mail address, company name, login name, passwords and job title. We request Personally Identifiable Information when you correspond with us, complete our questionnaire and/or request sales information. It will be clear when you are on a part of our Site that requires personal information, because we will ask you for it and you will need to complete a form or e-mail. Non-Personally Identifiable Information:
Why We Collect Information About You
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide customers with superior service and to provide all visitors a smooth, efficient, and personalized experience while using our Site. We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information on an aggregated basis to analyze customer behavior to help us understand how visitors use our Site and to measure interest in the various pages. We use this information to improve the content of our Site, to make our Site easier to use, and to customize our advertising.
How We Collect Information
Our web servers may automatically recognize a visitor's domain name (such as .com, .edu, etc.), the web page from which a visitor enters our site, which pages a visitor visits on our site, and on some sites, how much time a visitor spends on each page. This information does not reveal a visitor's identity. We aggregate this information and use it to evaluate and improve our websites. There may be times, such as requesting sales information, at which we ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, street address, telephone number, e-mail address, title, etc. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to certain services, offers, and content on our web site.
Using Information About You
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We use non-personally identifiable information in the aggregate to determine how much traffic the website receives, to statistically analyze website usage, to improve our content, and to customize the web site's content, layout and services. In addition, we may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to manage the website and to enhance the website based on the usage pattern data we receive.
Personally Identifiable Information
We will use personally identifiable information solely for the purpose for which you provide it and as otherwise may be disclosed at the point of collection. For example, we may use your contact information as provided to us, such as email address, telephone number, and/or mailing address, to contact you regarding administrative notices and communications related to your use of the website or otherwise as you may request, such as for an employment application.
In addition, we may use your Personal Information in the aggregate in a non-identifiable way in order to better understand the services being provided, how to improve these services and how to improve the website. We may provide this aggregated information to third parties, but when we do so we do not provide any of your personal information without your expressed permission.
Except as stated above, we will never sell, distribute, or release to a third party your personal information without your expressed permission.
Why did you receive an email from us?
If you received a mailing from us, (a) your email address is either listed with us as someone who has expressly shared this address for the purpose of receiving information in the future ("opt-in"), or (b) you have registered or purchased or otherwise have an existing relationship with us. We respect your time and attention by controlling the frequency of our mailings.
How we protect your privacy
We use security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of data used by our system.
Sharing and Usage
We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information with anyone without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for purposes of contacting you or sending you emails based on your request for information and to contracted service providers for purposes of providing services relating to our communications with you.
How can you stop receiving email from us?
Each email sent contains an easy, automated way for you to cease receiving email from us, or to change your expressed interests. If you wish to do this, simply follow the instructions at the end of any email or
with the address you want to remove.
If you have received unwanted or unsolicited email sent via this system or purporting to be sent via this system, please forward a copy of that email with your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
Protecting Your Information
We use sophisticated encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of your personal information that you share with us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our web site, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will do our best to protect its security on our systems.
We urge you to keep any password(s) used in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also remember to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or Internet cafe.
