Non-Identifiable Information Automatically Collected and Stored
We may routinely gather information on Site activities, such as data on how many people visit the Site, the pages they visit, where they come from, how long they stay, etc. Site visitor information is collected on an aggregate, anonymous basis, which means that no personal information is associated with this data.
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. This number does not identify your name, e-mail address or other personal information. If you request information from this Site, our server will enter your IP address into a log. We use this information to measure Site traffic, to help us to understand how people are using our Site and to hopefully improve your online experience. The Site collects this information due to the technological requirements for Web use. The server needs this information to be able to send you files compatible with the computer equipment you are using. Rest assured that none of these requirements enable personal identification.
Personally Identifiable Information
We may collect data that you provide to us voluntarily through our Contact Us page, such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number and other personal information (information about an identifiable individual). Personal information does not include business contact information, such as name, title, business address and business telephone number when used for business communications. We will not sell, share or otherwise distribute your personally identifiable information to third parties except as provided herein. Specifically, the contact information we collect may be used for our own internal tracking purposes, order placement, information correction, internal records, to respond to your questions, and to provide you with information we believe may be of interest to you. Additionally, personally identifiable information may occasionally be transferred to third parties who act on our behalf or in connection with our business, for further processing in accordance with the purposes for which the data was originally collected. Where disclosure of personally identifiable information to a third party is likely or necessary, further explanation may be provided, where appropriate, at such collection points as to the intended use of the data. We will require that such third parties protect the information and where appropriate, we will contractually require them to process data transferred only for the purposes expressly authorized by us. If a new purpose arises for which we require the use of your personal information, we will ask you for your consent.
Information that is not personal or is not associated with any personally identifiable data, such as questions, comments, ideas and suggestions, shall be deemed to be non-confidential and we shall be free to disclose and use it for any purpose, without any obligation whatsoever to you.
Personal information that does not have a specific purpose or that no longer fulfills its intended purpose will be destroyed in a secured fashion. We will only retain personal information for the duration of its intended use or as otherwise required by law.
