Thank you for visiting us online. This Privacy Statement describes the personally identifiable information we collect online, the choices you can make about the information you provide to us, and how we protect that information.
Personally identifiable information is information that can be associated with a specific individual or entity, such as name, mailing address, fax number, or email address.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
You can visit our Web site and learn about our services, products, equipment, parts, and accessories, without providing your personally identifiable information. However, to participate in certain interactive services through our Web site, you may need to provide personally identifiable information.
We are the sole owner of the information collected on this Web site. We do not sell, share or rent your information to third parties (marketers) for their own use, unless we first obtain your explicit consent to do so.
In some situations, we may share personally identifiable information with unaffiliated third parties such as sources of financing if you are seeking a loan in order to purchase services or goods from us. However, we will first obtain your explicit consent to do so. We do not allow these third parties to use your information for any purpose other than that requested by us and require them to protect personally identifiable information received from us in a manner similar to the protections we offer.
If we should merge with, acquire, or be acquired by another company, personal information provided to us may be transferred to or shared with that organization.
Registration and Password
As mentioned above, you may browse our Web site and learn about our services, products, equipment, parts, and accessories, without providing personally identifiable information. However, if you decide to use certain interactive functions, you will need to complete a registration form. As part of that process, you will be asked to choose a password.
As with any password, you should not disclose it to third parties. If you register through our Web site, you should recognize that your personal information could potentially be compromised or improperly accessed if someone finds your password and uses it. If you suspect unauthorized use of your password, you should immediately take steps to change your password and notify us of potentially fraudulent activity.
Changing or Updating Your Information
Following registration, you can review and change the information you submitted during registration, including your password. You are responsible for updating this information if it changes. If you post a message to any posting area on our Web site, you cannot change or remove your posting.
Automatic Collection of Tracking Information: Cookies and Log Files
In addition, log files may be used while you are visiting the Web site. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, such as site usage, and administer the site.
Links to Other Web Sites
Within our Web site, there may be links to Web sites that do not belong to us. These external Web sites are not subject to this Privacy Statement as we do not control those Web sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these external Web sites, and such links are not intended to be an endorsement of those sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Web site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.
Due to the rapidly evolving nature of information technologies, no transmission of data over the Internet can ever be fully guaranteed. However, we have appropriate technical, administrative and physical procedures in place to protect personal information from loss, misuse or alteration. We take steps to ensure that access to personally identifiable information is limited to individuals who have a business need consistent with the reason the information was provided. We maintain personally identifiable information in accordance with records guidelines, and train our employees on our privacy and security practices.
When we share your personally identifiable information with unaffiliated third parties (see “Information Sharing” above), we require that they protect your information in a manner similar to the protections we offer.
This Web site is intended for adults in the United States. We do not intentionally or knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13, and we request that individuals under the age of 13 not submit any personally identifiable information on the Web site.
Update the Privacy Statement
We may, from time to time, update or change our Privacy Statement. We will notify you of any changes by posting our updated Privacy Statement on our Web site and inserting a new “Effective Date.” Changes to our Privacy Statement only apply to personally identifiable information collected after the updated Privacy Statement is posted.
If we would like to use your data in a different manner than disclosed in this Privacy Statement, we will contact you (via the contact information provided to us, such as by mail or email) to ask your permission to use the data in this new way, and to seek your consent to do so.
