This policy does not necessarily describe information collection policies on other sites, such as separate sites operated by our Business Partners that we do not control. This policy may be changed from time to time and without further notice. Your continued use of the Site after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new terms. If you do not agree to abide by these new terms or any future terms, please do not use the Site.

If you use our services, request quotes for products through our Site or otherwise make use of the Site, we may ask you to provide further information, including but not limited to technical specifications, financial information, and other business-related information. When you visit our Site, we collect certain routing information such as the Internet Protocol address of your originating Internet Service Provider, and information provided by "cookies" stored on your hard drive.

How Do We Use The Information We Collect?

The information we collect from and about you and your company may be used in the following ways, among others: to fulfill orders and requests, to provide quote information in response to requests, to process, execute and monitor orders, to notify you and third parties of the status of orders, to prepare drawings, product configurations or productions, to provide you with information about offers or products we believe you will find useful, or to notify you of updated information, changes to our Site, or new products and services that we think might be beneficial to you or your business. We also may combine information you have provided to us in communications offline with the information you have given us online, to, among other things, provide a more customized experience for visits to our Site.

We use demographic and Site usage information collected from visitors to, among other purposes, improve the usefulness of our Site and to prepare aggregate, non-identifying information used in marketing, advertising, or similar activities.
