Privacy Statement

Effective Date: September 11, 2018

Privacy Statement
Your privacy is a priority for Veltek Associates, Inc. (sometimes referred to as “Veltek,” “us,” or “we”). We want you to be familiar with what information we collect relating to you, your computer, or your device that enables your identification (“Personal Information”) and why and how we use and disclose the information. This Privacy Statement describes our practices with information that we, or our service providers, collect from a user (sometimes referred to as “you” or “your”) through the website or applications operated and controlled by us from which you are accessing this Privacy Statement (collectively, the “Site”). This Privacy Statement only addresses information collected directly through or from our Site – it does not address or govern any information-gathering, use, or dissemination practices related to information collected from you other than directly through or from the Site, such as from telephone, facsimile, postal mail, personal delivery, or other or additional offline means or media.

By using the Site, you agree and consent to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Statement.

1. Collection of Personal Information From Users

When you interact with us through the Site, we may collect information from you as described below.

a. Information you provide

We collect Personal Information that you knowingly choose to submit through the Site in order to benefit from specified features or to participate in certain activities, such as information that you knowingly provide when you contact us through the “Contact Us” portion of the Site, when you request product information, when you apply for a career at Veltek, or when you create a profile on the Site to view product information, technical data, or receive change notification communications. For example, if you request product information through the Site, you may provide us with information such as your name, company name, address, phone number, and email address. If you apply for a job with Veltek, you may email your resume and information to an email address provided on the Site.

We may combine information you submit through the Site with other information we have collected from you, whether on-line or off-line. We treat the combined information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

b. Location Information

Any system on the Site may utilize an opt-in Geolocation service in accordance with a prevailing community standard such as HTML 5. Such Geolocation opt-in ability is managed by the user’s browser settings. If a user chooses to opt-in to the Geolocation service, the user’s input of its information may be associated with the user’s location, both internally within Veltek and publicly on the Sites. For example, when a user inputs its name, company name, address, and email information through the Site’s request production information page, the information input by the user may be associated with the user’s location.

c. Passive Information Collection, Use, and Choices

Also, as you navigate the Site, certain Personal Information may be passively collected, meaning it is gathered without your actively providing it. This is done using the following techniques in the following ways:

• IP Addresses: An IP address is a unique identifier that certain electronic devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet. When you visit our Site, we may view the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. We may use this information to determine the general physical location of the device and understand from what geographic regions our website visitors come. We also may use this information to enhance our Site.
• Through your browser: Certain information is collected by most browsers, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type and operating system type and version screen resolution, and Internet browser type and version.
• Cookies: Like many companies, our Site may use “cookies” to help make sure the Site is meeting the needs of its users and to help us make improvements. Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain websites. We may use cookies set by us on the Site to tell us, for example, whether you have visited us before or if you are a new visitor. We use third-party cookies set by our service providers to collect information about how visitors use the Site, including how long you spend on each page, and how you got to the Site. We do not use data collected by cookies to identify who you are. We do not allow our service providers to use or share our analytics data.
