We collect several types of information from and about users of our Website, including information by which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number (“personal information”), information that is about you but individually does not identify you, and information about your internet connection, the equipment you use to access our Website and usage details.

The information we collect on or through our Website may include information that you provide us by filling in forms on our Website or subscribing to our catalog. This information includes your name, company, address, email address and any other information you include in such forms. You may also provide information to be displayed (hereinafter, “posted”) on public areas of the Website (“User Contributions”). Your User Contributions are posted on and transmitted to others at your own risk. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users of the Website with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technologies:
As you navigate through and interact with our Website, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns. It helps us to improve our Website and to deliver a better and more personalized service. The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include cookies, flash cookies and web beacons. We do not collect personal information about you automatically, but we may tie this information to personal information about you that you provide to us.
Cookies are small files saved to the user’s computer’s hard drive that track, save and store information about the user’s interactions and usage of the Website. This allows the Website, through its server, to provide the users with a tailored experience within this Website. Users are advised that if they wish to deny the use and saving of cookies from this Website on to their computer’s hard drive, they should take necessary steps within their Web browser’s security settings to block all cookies from this Website and its external serving vendors.
Other cookies may be stored to your computer’s hard drive by external vendors when this website uses referral programs, sponsored links or adverts. Such cookies are used for conversion and referral tracking and typically expire after 30 days, though some may take longer. No personal information is stored, saved or collected.
How do we use your information?
We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information to present our Website and its contents to you, to provide you with information, products, or services that you request from us, to fulfill any other purpose for which you provide it, in any other way that we may describe when you provide the information, and for any other purpose with your consent.
SECTION 2 – Consent
How do you get my consent?
When you provide us with personal information to place an order, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only. If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
SECTION 4 – Security
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Users contacting this Website and/or its owners do so at their own discretion and provide any such personal details requested at their own risk. Every effort has been made to ensure a safe and secure form to email submission process but we advise users using such forms to email processes that they do so at their own risk.
