We use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site. By using our Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
Information Collection And Use
While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to your name (“Personal Information”).
Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site (“Log Data”).
This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.
In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyse this.
We may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, or promotional materials and other information that we believe may interest you or to process your inquiries and respond to your requests. For example, when you contact us for additional information on our products or services or when you request to receive certain content (e.g. white papers, research papers, product and services information).
We are committed to protecting the privacy of the people we do business with and who visit our site. In order to deliver products to you and to communicate with you we may need to ask for your name, address, email and telephone number. We will only use this information in order to fulfil orders placed via our website, or to send you information that you may find relevant.
We do not sell, trade or rent out any personal information, including email addresses, to third parties.
Any information which is protected by password is confidential information which will not be disclosed to any third party unless and only to the extent required by law or approved in writing by us.
Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive.
Like many sites, we use “cookies” to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Site.
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
We may use third party advertisements (“Third Party Networks”) to support our Site. Some of these Third Party Networks may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these Third Party Networks (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, and the browser you used to visit our site. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
Additionally, we may use certain Third Party Networks to help us market our products on our own website and on third party websites (e.g. remarketing ads across the Internet by Google). In connection with the services provided by such Third Party Networks, we or the Third Party Network may use first-party cookies and/or third-party cookies.
The cookies we use can be categorised into the following categories:
- Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
- Performance Cookies: These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
- Functional Cookies: These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
- Targeted Cookies: These cookies may be set through our site by Third Party Networks. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.
While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology which encodes information as it is being sent over the Internet between your computer and the Site, ensuring that the information is kept confidential. The SSL system is used by all reputable e-commerce sites and as the industry standard is compatible with most browsers.
