How Personal Information is Collected and Used
NETWORK only collects personal information that you or your company has voluntarily submitted to us through our Websites. This may include information such as your name, street and e-mail addresses, and telephone number. We never automatically collect personal information through our Websites without your knowledge.
Our Websites may also collect non-identifiable information that becomes available to us as a result of your visit to our Websites. This information includes, for example, your IP address (a number automatically assigned to your computer when you visit the Websites, and which is logged by our servers), your Internet Service Provider (“ISP”), your web browser, the type of operating system, the domain name of the Websites which links you to our Websites, the pages you visited, the average time spent on the Websites, and the products or services searched for on the Websites.
Because we are very interested in the successful dissemination of information through the Websites, we may review visitor trends recorded on certain log files. In connection with such log files, analysis software will be used to generate reports that will allow us to determine how we can enhance your experience with our Websites. This information will not be used to ascertain your identity or the substance of what you are viewing. The log files may be purged periodically, in our discretion, to maximize space on the server.
Uses of Personal Information
Unless we specifically tell you otherwise before you submit personal information, we will only use submitted information to:
- Respond to your questions or comments
- Better understand your purchasing habits and needs
- Help us understand how we can improve our products, services, and Websites
- Inform you about special promotions
- Contact you to ask for your opinion or willingness to participate in certain events
- Establish Internet ordering or subscription services, and from time to time thereafter to maintain the accuracy of our records.
- Meet legal, regulatory, insurance, security and processing requirements.
To improve your visit to our sites, we may use “cookies” to obtain non-personal information about the material on our site that you have viewed (cookies are information files that your browser places on your computer during your temporary visit to our Web site). We may aggregate this data to analyze the viewing habits of our site visitors, but it will not be associated with any personally identifiable data. The cookies do not collect any personally identifiable information about you, and do not extract any information from your computer.
You can disable cookies using your Internet browser settings. Please consult your browsers’ help function for information on how to disable cookies. Note that if you disable cookies, certain features of our Site may not function properly.
Sharing Personal Information With Others
Subject to the exceptions set forth below, NETWORK will not use or share your personal information in ways unrelated to the uses described above unless we provide you with prior notice.
We may share aggregated statistical information with our business partners. This information does not include personally identifying information. These partners are carefully selected by NETWORK and also take the protection of information very seriously.
