What Personal Data and Information Do We Collect Through Our Site?
Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. Personal information is requested when you order a service, register for an account and send us feedback. For example, this information might include your name, address (both billing and registered), email address, industry and product details, and credit card or other payment information. Such information may be held on our contacts and administration databases either because of the work we have done with you or are currently engaged in, or because we believe you might be interested in receiving material from us about our business and services. This allows us to manage our relationship with you efficiently, improve our Site and the services which we offer to you and to target items of interest we may send to you.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that is statistical in nature only and that does not, by itself, identify a specific individual or entity, and which depends upon the visiting you do on the Site. For example, this information may include the domain from which you access the Internet, the date and time you access the Site, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to the Site. This information is used in an aggregate form to make the Site more useful and attractive to its users.
