FLEXcon Company, Inc. ("FLEXcon") is committed to protecting the privacy and security of user information collected on our website (collectively, the "Site"). The following privacy statement ("Privacy Statement") discloses our policies on the collection, use, and disclosure of information on the Site.

Information Collected
FLEXcon may collect both Aggregate Information and Personally Identifiable Information on the Site. "Aggregate Information" is information that describes the habits and other behavioral traits of the users of the Site as a group but does not indicate the identity of a particular user. Generally, this information is collected through "traffic data" and may entail the use of "Cookies", "IP addresses" or other numeric codes used to identify a computer. The use of "Cookies" on the site is explained in more detail below in the "IP Address and Cookies" section.

"Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information you voluntarily provide to FLEXcon that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name,
e-mail address, company name, address, or telephone number.

Use of Aggregate Information
FLEXcon may use Aggregate Information to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our registered users and visitors to measure user behavior regarding specific areas of the Site and to analyze how and where best to use our resources. Without such data, we would not know which parts of the Site are the most popular, and we would not be able to change and update the content and services appropriately.
We may use Aggregate Information to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Site, and for product monitoring and improvement.

Use of Personally Identifiable Information
FLEXcon does not collect Personally Identifiable Information about you except when you specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis, as prompted by the Site in the circumstances described below.

  1. Required Disclosure: FLEXcon will only disclose Personally Identifiable Information without your permission if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (i) conform to the requirements of the law or comply with legal process served on FLEXcon or the Site; (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of FLEXcon; (iii) enforce the FLEXcon Terms of Use; or (iv) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public.
  2. E-Mail Promotions: If you choose to receive promotional e-mails from FLEXcon, we will ask you to provide FLEXcon with your e-mail address. If at any time after you subscribe to receive e-mail promotions, you may unsubscribe by replying to FLEXcon with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject heading of your e-mail.
  3. Product and Service Purchases/Inquiries: FLEXcon will collect Personally Identifiable Information from you when you request additional information about a particular product or service listed on the Site, so that a FLEXcon sales representative is able to contact you to provide the information you have requested.
  4. Service/Support Related Correspondence: FLEXcon may use your
    e-mail contact information to deliver technical support-related service information, as applicable. We will not send you unrelated promotional
    e-mails unless you have specifically asked to receive them.
  5. Correspondence: If you contact FLEXcon, we may keep a record of that correspondence. If you communicate with FLEXcon via e-mail, we may keep a record of your e-mail address, but we will not disclose your e-mail address except as permitted under this Privacy Statement.

Sharing of Personally Identifiable Information
FLEXcon feels strongly that your Personally Identifiable Information should only be seen by you, unless you choose to share it with others. We will never sell, rent, license or exchange Personally Identifiable Information to or with a third party without your permission, except as permitted under this Privacy Statement. FLEXcon will only share your Personally Identifiable Information with our partners to the extent necessary to fulfill your orders for goods and services purchased on the Site. We will employ reasonable efforts to require these partners to abide by this Privacy Statement and not further use or disclose your Personally Identifiable Information for any purpose other than providing us or you with products and services.

Security
Information collected by FLEXcon is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. All of our employees are dedicated to maintaining and upholding your privacy and security and are aware of our privacy and security policies. Although we use industry-standard practices to protect your privacy, we cannot guarantee, and you should not expect, that your Personally Identifiable Information or private communications will remain private under all circumstances. For example, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or stored information. We cannot and do not assume any responsibility or liability for any information you submit to us or your's or a third party's use or misuse of information transmitted or received during use of the Site.

The privacy practices of those partners or web sites linked to FLEXcon are not covered by this Privacy Statement and FLEXcon is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.

IP Addresses and Cookies
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Site. Your IP address is used to help identify you and to gather broad statistical information. IP addresses are also used to provide an audit trail in the case of attempted illegal use of the Site as well as to guard against spamming.

FLEXcon may use "Cookies" - a Cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the Cookie to you. The purpose of a Cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific web page. Cookies allow us to know how often users visit the Site and the activities that users conduct while on the Site.

FLEXcon encourages you to periodically review this Privacy Statement to be informed of how FLEXcon is protecting your information.
