We value the trust of our customers. To earn your trust, we respect your privacy in handling personally-identifiable information relating to you and your transactions with us. This Privacy Statement describes the personally identifiable information we gather about you, what we do with it, and how you can control our use of it.

What kind of information do we collect?

When your organization enters into a business relationship with us, we ask for information such as your company name and shipping addresses for the products that you will purchase from us. Your company may also choose to provide us with names, work telephone numbers, and email addresses for various people with whom we may need to contact regarding the state of your orders or account.

When you use our electronic commerce web site, we will ask your company to either enter or provide us with a list of "users" and their names, work telephone numbers, email addresses, and optionally additional information on those people within your company that may need to approve orders that are placed.

You may browse our web site without supplying any personally identifiable information, but we will need to use personally identifiable information to process your orders or to send you offers or information that you request.

What do we do with the information we collect?

We use the information we collect to build strong business relationships with our customers. We want your business, so we want our customer service staff to be able to contact you if necessary. We'll use your name and shipping address to deliver the products you order, and use your email address to notify you of various events (such as acknowledgement of orders you place, or approvals or rejections of those orders by others). If you wish, we will also occasionally send you email with our current promotions and special offers.

Do we sell or otherwise share the information we collect?

The information you provide to us is confidential. We may need to share this information with our business partners, such as a delivery service we may use to deliver your orders, or the service firm that operates our electronic commerce web site. These business partners use the information solely for processing your orders or information requests. Neither we or our partners will sell your information or provide it to any organization not directly involved in servicing your orders unless compelled otherwise by law.

Do these policies apply to third-party sites linked to by our web site?

The policy described here applies only to information you supply directly to us via our web site or other techniques. As you explore our web site, you may find links to other sites. Our privacy policies do not apply to these other web sites, and you should check the policies of any linked site before offering information to the sponsor of that site.
