HOW DO WE PROTECT VISITOR INFORMATION?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be only accessed as stated above.

DO WE USE "COOKIES"?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly. However, you can still place orders over the telephone by contacting customer service.

We may automatically collect certain information from all users, including: (a) the date and time of website access, (b) the originating IP address from which you accessed the website, (c) the Internet address of third-party websites from which you accessed our website, and (d) pages and portions of the website you views or access. We do not combine general information collected from website visitors with other information to determine your identity or email address without your consent. We use general information collected using cookies and similar technologies in order to provide access to the website, to review and evaluate our services, and for other internal informational purposes only.

We do reserve the right to display our customers’ company names and corporate logos on our “featured customer page,” either temporarily or on a permanent basis, at our discretion. We do not identify individual persons on the featured customer page. Placing an order for or on behalf of a corporate entity (for example, a corporation, limited liability company, or other business entity) constitutes your consent (on behalf of the company for which you place the order) for the company’s name and logo or trademark (if any) to be displayed on our featured customer page and publicly identified as a customer of our company. We do not identify the individual who placed the order, the contents of the order, or other information aside from the company’s name and/or corporate logo on the featured customer page.

However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. In addition, we reserve the right to identify corporate customers (including both corporations and all other recognized entity forms, such as limited liability companies and joint ventures) and their logos or trademarks on our “featured customer page” – provided that such identification is limited to the company name and trademark or logo and will not include order or contact information or the name of any individual.
