Personal Information We Collect
In order for you to receive the most benefit from our Site, we collect user-submitted, personal information when you access the Site. We may receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. This may include information that can identify you (“personal information”), including your first and last name, company name, telephone number, postal and email addresses, fax number, and billing information. Information may be submitted to the CONTROLTEK either via the website or via phone or email when communicating with one of our representatives.
In addition to “personal information,” we may also gather non-personal information. Such data may be gathered when using the Site and includes things like the referring URL and the type of browser you may be using to access the Site. We gather this information to better understand your use of the Site. This in turn, enables us to improve and enhance your experience.
Cookie and Web Tags
This policy applies to any Personal Information that CONTROLTEK has in its possession or control regardless of how or where that information was obtained, or where it is stored or used. All CONTROLTEK organizations and personnel worldwide are governed by this policy.
CONTROLTEK may also use web tags, also known as single-pixel tags, which are graphics that function similar to cookies. Single-pixel tags are not visible because of their small size. They are used to collect information in web logs that do not identify you personally, such as web pages viewed, the web site you came from, and any advertisement you clicked on to visit our Site. They also are used to determine whether certain promotional or other commercial e-mail messages we send are opened.
For ease of use and in order to have an effective experience within our Site, CONTROLTEK utilizes its Site as an interface for transmitting payment for the products that we offer (the “Products”). If you elect to pay for Products with a credit card or similar method, we may collect your name, credit card number, expiration date, and address information associated with the account. We use commercially reasonable methods to collect, store, and use your financial information.
You are responsible for maintaining the security of your username and password. Please remember to protect this vital information by never sharing your username or password. If you think your password may have been compromised, please change it immediately or contact CONTROLTEK for additional assistance.
