Online Information Gathering
Information collected online is often defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable. Anonymous information cannot be tied back to a specific individual. Personally identifiable information lets us know the specifics of who you are such as your name, e-mail address, or postal address. The choice of how much of your personally identifiable information that you choose to disclose to Earthsafe is left completely up to you.
The only way we know something about you personally is if you voluntarily provide us with your personal information, such as when you transact business at our site, or communicate on the site by sending us an e-mail.
Collection of IP Addresses
When visiting any Internet site your unique address called an ‘IP address is recorded. Earthsafe does not release any information about the collection of this address to any third party except under court order. Earthsafe archives the log files in order to create aggregate statistical reports, detect errors at the web site, and for security reasons. The log files are eventually deleted.
Collection of Personal Information
On certain pages on our site, we give you the option of providing us with names, addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers, e-mail addresses, and other information. This more personal information is not gathered by us without your knowing and active permission and participation.
Earthsafe’s site generally stores no information about its visitors, with the exceptions of basic logging for site stats (machine addresses, not e-mail addresses), and information provided by users who fill out our online forms. Earthsafe does compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors to our site and its subdirectories, the daily requests we receive for particular files, and what server locations, those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used internally to better provide services and may also be provided to others, but again, do not include personal information.
We will never intentionally disclose any personal information about you or your company that is collected from you on our site to any third party without having received your permission. Without your permission, Earthsafe will not sell, rent, loan or give personally identifiable user information collected from you on Earthsafe’s site to marketers or any other third parties.
