USER CONSENT

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

We collect information so that we can provide the best possible experience when you utilize our Services.  Much of what you likely consider personal data is collected directly from you when you:

  • Submit an enquiry about our services through contact and request for quote forms. (ex: Name, Email Address, Mailing Address, Phone Number, Job title)
  • Request assistance from our customer support and services team through our support site. (ex: Name, Email Address, Mailing Address & Phone Number)
  • Subscribe to our marketing communication programs such as blogs, newsletters etc. (ex: Email Address)
  • Sign up for our support programs. (ex: Name, Email Address, Mailing Address, Phone Number, Job title)
  • Participate in surveys, apply for a job, or otherwise participate in activities we promote that might require information about you.   

However, we also collect additional information when delivering our Services to you to ensure necessary and optimal performance.  These methods of collection may not be as obvious to you, so we wanted to highlight and explain below a bit more about what these might be (as they vary from time to time) and how they work:

 

Data about Usage of Services is automatically collected when you use and interact with our Services, including search keywords, metadata, log files, cookie/device IDs and location information. This information includes specific data about your interactions with the features, content and links (including those of third-parties, such as social media plugins) contained within the Services, Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and settings, the date and time the Services were used, information about browser configuration and plugins, language preferences and cookie data, information about devices accessing the Services, including type of device, what operating system is used, device settings, application IDs, unique device identifiers and error data, and some of this data collected might be capable of and be used to approximate your location. 

 

Analytics and similar technologies on our websites allow us to track your browsing behavior, links clicked, pages visited, time spent, your device type, and to collect various data, including analytics, about how you use and interact with our Services. This allows us to provide you with more relevant product offerings, a better experience on our sites and mobile applications, and to collect, analyze and improve the performance of our Services. We may also collect your location (IP address) so that we can personalize our Services.

 

Account related information is collected in association with your use of our Services, such as instrument serial number, purchases, purchase date, when products renew or expire, information requests, and customer service requests and notes or details explaining what you asked for and how we responded.

Supplemented Data may be received about you from other sources, including publicly available databases or third parties from whom we have purchased data, in which case we may combine this data with information we already have about you so that we can update, expand and analyze the accuracy of our records, identify new customers, and provide products and services that may be of interest to you.  If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.

 

HOW DO WE UTILIZE INFORMATION?

We collect various information relating to your use and/or interactions with our Services. We utilize this information to:

We also partner with third parties to manage our advertising on our web pages and other websites.  Our third party partners may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about such activities in order to provide you with advertising based on your browsing activities and interests and to measure advertising effectiveness.  If you wish to opt out of interest-based advertising click here [or if located in the European Union click here].

‘DO NOT TRACK’ NOTIFICATIONS.

Some browsers allow you to automatically notify websites you visit not to track you using a “Do Not Track” signal. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, we currently do not alter our practices when we receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” you may wish to visit www.allaboutdnt.com.

AGE RESTRICTIONS.

Our Services are available for purchase only for those over the age of 18.  Our Services are not targeted to, intended to be consumed by or designed to entice individuals under the age of 18. If you know of or have reason to believe anyone under the age of 18 has provided us with any personal data, please contact us.
