What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our website, you may provide us with personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis. In addition, we may collect general website use information on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our site. Aggregate information does not identify any particular individual, but allows us to better analyze and meet our customers’ needs. One example of this is what is commonly referred to as Website Use Information. Similar to other commercial websites, Innovative Switchgear uses a standard website use information technology called “cookies” (see the explanation below) and web server log files to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the website visited just before and just after visiting our website.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Generally, we use personal information to inform and guide some of our business activities and marketing efforts, to monitor the use of our website, to improve our content and product offerings, and for other lawful purposes. These uses improve our site and better tailor it to meet your needs. This general tracking information may be shared with others on an aggregate basis. Personally identifiable information or business information will not be shared with parties except as required by law.
What Are Cookies?
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as traffic data so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you.
Sharing and Selling Information:
Innovative Switchgear does not share, sell or provide for any reason any of the information that uniquely identifies a user with anyone except to the extent it is required by law.
What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so by subpoena or by various law enforcement agencies, for example. We may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone to protect the safety of our users and the public.
No business can ensure that technically creative and motivated “hackers” cannot circumvent reasonable efforts to protect personal information in electronic format. We will attempt to provide reasonable protection, but cannot guarantee that these efforts will always be successful in achieving their purpose.
