Communication Technologies, Inc. (COMTek) is committed to protecting the
privacy of visitors to this and any other Web sites COMTek may own or manage.
that governs all Internet-related communications for COMTek. This policy is
subject to change. We will, however, keep this page updated to make visitors
aware of any and all changes. Please read our policy and let us know what you
think. If you have any questions about this policy, please feel free to contact
us at email@example.com.
The following principles guide all of our on-line communications:
- Unsolicited E-mail. We will never
send unsolicited e-mail to you or other visitors to our Web site. We will
use e-mail to respond to e-mail messages from you, to confirm product or
service orders placed online and to engage in other communication which
you have expressly permitted.
- We do not sell, trade, or disclose
to third parties personal information gathered online about you without
your consent. We will never provide your e-mail address, or any other
personal information gathered from you during visits to our Web site, to
any external organization without your permission. The only exceptions to
this rule are:
- a. When we use a fulfillment house
to ship a product that you have purchased. In these circumstances, we
require our vendors to adhere to our policies governing the use and protection
of your personal information.
- b. As may be required by subpoena,
search warrant, or other legal process or in the case of imminent physical
harm to you or others.
- c. When we use other agents,
contractors, or companies to perform services on our behalf. Under these
circumstances, we will ensure that your personal information is protected
consistent with this policy.
Collection of Usage Data
Our servers automatically gather information about which sites you visit on the
Internet as well as which particular pages of our Site you have visited. We use
that information solely to evaluate the popularity of certain pages or sections
of our Site in order to improve customer satisfaction, internal marketing
analysis, and for the other purposes stated above.
We honor requests from you to correct your account information (for example,
your name, address, or billing information).
What information do we gather and how is
- Generic Data. When you visit our
Web site, we log general data, including your domain name (e.g.,
aol.com,), the name of the Web page from which you entered our Site, which
pages you visit on our Site, and how much time you spend on each page. We
use this information to continually monitor and improve our Web site.
Personal Information That You Choose to Submit. As a visitor to our Web
site, you may choose to send us a question via e-mail, register for a
special service, enter a contest or purchase a product or service on-line.
Anytime you submit personal information for a specific purpose, your
information will be used for that purpose only. Our policy is to explain
to you how your personal information will be used at the time you submit
that information. In many cases, you choose the amount of information you supply
(e.g., when sending us e-mail, you may choose to include only an e-mail
address - not a telephone number or mailing address - for replies). There
may be instances where we require complete information for a particular
activity, but again, it's completely your choice whether or not to
complete the form.
- Transactional Data. We have the
utmost confidence in our ability to safely and securely process your
orders for products and services over our Web servers. All purchase
information is encrypted and secured to reduce, as much as possible,
instances of credit card theft. Information such as this is used only for
the purchase that you have requested.
What about "cookies?"
The term "cookie" refers to files that are transferred from a Web
site to your computer's hard drive. The purpose of cookies is to enable us to
track your activities on our Web site. Cookies help us remember who you are.
They work in the same fashion as the clerk in a store you visit on a regular
basis. The store clerk may not necessarily know your name, but he or she
recognizes that you have been in the store before and may remember what you
usually purchase while you are in the store. Cookies permit us to gain the same
kind of information about you and enable us to provide you with more efficient
and personalized service. For example, for sites that require registration, a
cookie file can be stored on your computer enabling you to skip the
registration process on subsequent visits. Cookies are also frequently used to
track the progression of a customer engaged in an on-line purchase to ensure
that the transactional information remains intact. Some (usually newer)
versions of Web browsers allow you to decide whether or not to accept cookie
files and some programs notify you when a Web site is about to deposit a cookie
file on your hard drive. If you decide not to accept cookies, you may not be
able to successfully navigate some portions of a Web site.
You can check your hard drive for cookie
files. For PC's, look for "cookies.txt" files on your hard drive. On
a Macintosh, look for " magic cookies." There are software programs
available ("cookie cutters" and "anonymizers") that allow
you to selectively edit cookie files. COMTek uses cookie files for online purchasing
information from your computer that was not originally sent in the cookie. We
hope the above information addresses any concerns you may have had regarding
privacy issues while using our Web site. Again, we encourage you to contact us
at firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions you have in this
