This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for McGrew Equipment. McGrew Equipment promotes the use of fair information practices. Because McGrew Equipment is committed to your privacy, we have agreed to disclose our information practices.
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE:
McGrew Equipment may collect several types of information from and about users of our Website, including information which you may be personally identified, such as your name, IP or physical address, email address, phone number, or any other identifier that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact or locate you. This includes but not limited to your internet connection, the equipment you use to access our Website and other usage details.
We may collect this information directly from you when you provide it to us, automatically when you access or use the Website; and/or from third-parties, such as vendors or business partners.
INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US:
The information we collect on or through our website may include information that you provide by filling in forms on our website, including, but not limited to, information you provide at the time you create an account, sign up for newsletters, post any materials, and/or at the time you contact us. In addition, information may include records and copies of your correspondence with us and your responses to surveys or questions.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use the site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on the site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic and geographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We may share demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is generally not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. However, McGrew Equipment may send E-mails or mail about special offers or other offers or information that may be of interest to the user based on the information we collect. McGrew Equipment uses an outside company (such as UPS, USPS, Fed Ex. etc.) to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not to our knowledge, retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
We may partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
This website may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that McGrew Equipment is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to read the privacy statements of every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES:
This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.
When our website forms ask users to enter sensitive information, that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, has restricted access at McGrew Equipment. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, order clerk, sales representative, or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Access to the information is made via a password-protected site. Each time an employee needs to access information, they must enter their password to gain access to the information. Furthermore, employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Employees are periodically notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected.
We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in any public areas of the website. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Website.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is never completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted through our website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the website.
SUPPLEMENTATION OF INFORMATION:
In order for this website to properly fulfill its obligation to our customers, it may be necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from third party sources.
For example, to determine if customers qualify for financing, we may use their name and social security number to request a credit report or approval from a lending institution.
WEBSITE AND SERVICE UPDATES:
McGrew Equipment may send the user site and service announcement updates which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regard to issues relating to their account via e-mail or phone.
NO COLLECTION OF INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN:
Our website is not intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not solicit or knowingly collect any information from visitors under 13 years of age. Please do not use the website if you are not yet 13, unless you have the permission of your parent or legal guardian. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us immediately.
CORRECTING / UPDATING PERSONAL INFORMATION:
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as address or E-mail), or if a user no longer desires to receive information from McGrew Equipment, we will endeavor to correct, update or remove that user’s personal data from our database.
