Talktronics believes that the primary purpose of having a website
is to provide information, not to gather it. As is true with many other
website owners, however, personal information is often imparted to us
through our websites. We are committed to protecting our visitors' privacy
and have a policy of safeguarding our visitors' personal information
from unauthorized disclosure, access and use. Below we explain how our
websites may obtain personal information, what we do with it, and how
we protect it.
Information Gathered Through Traffic Monitoring
Like many other websites, our website is equipped with a program
which monitors traffic by automatically recording each visitor's host
and/or IP address. This program tracks the number of times the site
is hit, how many visitors come to the site, and which parts of the site
they frequent. Talktronics does not retain the addresses collected by
the program, nor do we disclose them to anyone outside of the company.
We simply use the information to assess the effectiveness of our site.
Information Gathered Through Registration
In a few locations within our site, visitors may be asked to fill
out a registration or otherwise volunteer personal information. Typically,
the requested information may include an e-mail address, a business
address, an indication of preferences, and the like. Talktronics takes
precautions to assure that information gathered from visitors by way
of registration is not disclosed to any unauthorized third parties.
Also, we use the data for very limited purposes, for example, to apprise
the registrant of new product offerings or to tailor a set of browsing
preferences for subsequent visits to our site. The company does not
use the information to call upon the visitor, unless the visitor expressly
asks to be contacted in the future.
