Privacy Policy

We are committed to maintaining the privacy and security of your personally identifiable information as you visit the Web Site. This privacy policy defines Our commitment to protect the personally identifiable information We collect, use, or disclose through the Web Site (this “Privacy Policy”). Please carefully read this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into, and made a part of, the Terms of Use.
We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time without specific notice to you. The most recent form of this Privacy Policy will be posted at all times on the Web Site, and you should review this Privacy Policy each time upon visiting or using the Web Site. You agree that each time you enter or use the Web Site, you accept and comply with, and agree to be bound by, this Privacy Policy, as modified.

Information We Collect
Throughout the Web Site, you may voluntarily submit information that personally identifies you (the “Personally Identifiable Information”). For example, We may ask you to voluntarily submit Personally Identifiable Information, if you request information regarding Our products and services, or request access to certain parts of the Web Site. Personally Identifiable Information includes, but is not limited to, your (a) name, (b) company’s name, (c) department, (d) physical address, (e) phone number, (f) fax number, (g) e-mail address, (h) engine type and value, (i) billing information, (j) status of service requests, (k) viewing preferences, and (l) product interests and comments.
To help Us tailor the Web Site to the needs and interests of Our visitors, We may collect various types of information from you that do not identify you personally (the “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”). For example, when you visit the Web Site, Our server, through the use of tracking devices, may collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information pertaining to you, including your IP address, the length of time you spend on the Web Site, which pages you visited within Our Web Site, which site you visited before coming to Ours, and which site you accessed when you left the Web Site.

What We Do With the Information We Collect
We will only release Personally Identifiable Information (a) as required by law, (b) to protect and defend Our rights or properties, (c) to protect your personal safety and the personal safety of Our users and the public in general (whether in emergency situations or otherwise), (d) to third parties to maintain and/or operate the Web Site, (e) to Our business partners that provide services selected by you, (f) to Our affiliates, (g) to process your purchase from Us of items or services on, or in connection with, the Web Site, (h) to fulfill your service requests, (i) to provide you with information on products, specials, newsletters, and other services We provide, and/or (j) to enforce the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use.
We aggregate the Non-Personally Identifiable Information with information collected from other visitors of the Web Site to track overall visitor traffic patterns. This aggregated information allows Us to develop statistics that are helpful to understanding how Our visitors use the Web Site. We use this aggregated information to monitor, maintain, and improve the functionality of the Web Site, making it more responsive to the needs of Our visitors. We may also use the Non-Personally Identifiable Information for historical, statistical, scientific, or other purposes. We reserve the right to use, sell, and assign for any and all purposes all Non-Personally Identifiable Information; and you authorize Us to use, sell, and assign, for any and all purposes, all Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

Security
We place the highest priority on protecting your Personally Identifiable Information and take commercially reasonable measures to secure and protect your Personally Identifiable Information. However, We cannot guarantee that any electronic commerce is totally secure. For example, even though We will not release your Personally Identifiable Information without your consent or except as otherwise expressly stated in this Privacy Policy, We have no control over the information collected by your Internet service provider or your employer (if the Web Site is made available to you through your employer or if you send Us Personally Identifiable Information through your employer-provided email account), or information that you disclose in a public forum. Any such third party that collects your Personally Identifiable Information may use the information in accordance with its terms and conditions of use (and related privacy policies), which may be different from this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for any information collected by such third parties and/or how such information is used or maintained. Neither any third party nor We have the authority to make any representations or commitments on behalf of the other.

Cookies
We reserve the right to place a text file called a “cookie” (or a piece of information transferred to your hard disk for record keeping purposes) in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain information that would personally identify you, although it could enable Us to relate your use of the Web Site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to the Web Site.

Unsubscribing and Opting-Out
If you have opted-in to receive status updates regarding a product or service you have purchased or requested from Us, you may opt-out, at any time, from receiving any such status update by selecting the appropriate option on the informational page for such product or service located on the Web Site.
