|PROTECTION OF CUSTOMER INFORMATION
We understand the importance of privacy to our customers and visitors to our Web site. For many years, our policy has been to treat what we learn about our customers as confidential. For example, we will not give or sell confidential or personal information about our customer to any third party not affiliated with their inquiry/order/transaction.
Some of the information collected by Northeast Controls is personal data or data which relates to an identifiable person. Examples of personal data are names, addresses, e-mail addresses, credit card numbers and telephone numbers. We never sell information to third parties that could be used to specifically identify an individual customer or group of customers.
In addition to the uses of the information described in the paragraphs above, we collect telephone numbers and e-mail addresses in the event that we have to contact the shipper, or the shipment recipient, to resolve a question or provide shipment status information.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Northeast Controls provides links to external sites as a convenience to the user. The inclusion of any link does not imply Northeast Controls endorsement of the external site company, its web site, or the products and services it promotes and sells. Northeast Controls is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
SECURITY AND INTEGRITY OF INFORMATION
We treat our data as assets that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We employ information security techniques to appropriately protect confidential information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company. Access to customer information is limited to those employees who have a legitimate business need for that information.
Northeast Controls Internet sites are currently located in the United States. Northeast Controls Internet sites, and their supporting systems, employ generally accepted information security techniques such as firewalls, access control procedures and cryptography to appropriately protect confidential information from unauthorized access.
RETENTION OF CUSTOMER INFORMATION
We retain information about customers as necessary for business purposes and as required by government regulation. For example, we retain information about orders, including names and addresses, so that we can provide product-service support. We carefully dispose of records and delete information when retention periods expire.
What Information We Collect And How We Will Use It
Users can visit most areas of this Northeast Controls Web site without revealing who they are or providing any information about themselves. However, some of our interactive services require that users identify themselves in order to enable the interactive function. We may ask users to provide some personal information in these situations.
The Northeast Controls Web site collects IP addresses for system administration, security, and statistical analysis purposes. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to a computer whenever it is connected to the Internet. We log these addresses and analyze them to understand where requests originate so that we can provide the most efficient service, enhance security, ensure appropriate usage and produce traffic volume statistics.
