You can visit this site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself, including your e-mail address. In this case, our Web server may collect the name of the IP address you used to access the Internet and the web site you came from and visit next. This information is used by us and our business partners to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views, and other statistics about visitors to this Site in general. We may also use this data to monitor site performance, for systems administration purposes, to make this Site easier and more convenient to use and to report information in aggregate form to our advisers (e.g. how many visitors log in to this Site).

Personal Information Collection

There are times when we may ask you for or you may choose to provide for information about yourself and your business to assist us in meeting your various needs.

To provide these products or services, we may need to ask you directly to provide, among other things, your name, mailing address, postal code, e-mail address, phone number and date of birth. At times, we also conduct on-line surveys to better understand the needs, profiles, and experience of our visitors. You will be given the option of not participating in such surveys.

Security

TECSYS has created this security and privacy statement in order to demonstrate and communicate its commitment to doing business with the highest ethical standards and appropriate internal controls.

Our site's secured forms require users to give us contact and personal information (like name, address, and credit card number). This information is used to ship orders, and to bill orders. This information is also used to get in touch with customers when necessary. Under no circumstances is this information shared with third parties other than for billing and shipping purposes. All personal information is received using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology. Moreover, credit card numbers are encrypted within our database and are discarded as soon as we receive the bank authorization number. No credit card number will be stored in our systems for any period longer than is strictly necessary.

Our site does not capture information regarding the specific activities of any particular user. It does, however, produce reports that allow us to view activity in anonymous aggregated form. We do not use cookies or any other mechanism to capture or maintain information from users without their consent. The only personal information we capture has been specifically submitted to us through secured forms. No sensitive information is sent via email.

If you have any questions about this security and privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with our company, please contact us at webmaster@tecsys.com.
