Typically, this information includes your name, postal address, e-mail address and telephone number. If you purchase products from us we will also collect your credit card information, the type of product ordered or purchases, and the date of the order or purchase.
Information Collected Through Technology
We collect information through technology to make our site more interesting and useful to you. For instance, when you visit our site, we collect your IP address. An IP address is often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet, like your ISP (Internet Service Provider) or your company. Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable information. At times we also use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which our visitors/customers visit various parts of our site.
We also use technical methods to analyze the traffic patterns on our Website, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of our Website, length of visits, download errors and page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs).
3. Why do we collect this information?
We collect the personally identifiable information in order to serve the needs of our visitors and customers. If you are purchasing a product from us and supply us with credit card information, we need to know who you are in order to verify the credit card information you have sent us. The non-personal information that we collect from you is used for internal purposes to make your experience with our site more enjoyable.
