Why we collect information
We collect and use your personal information to give you the most personalized and convenient access to our web store and services. In specific, we use your personal information to keep you up to date on the latest IT news, product announcements, special offers/promotions, and other information we think you'd like to hear about —all related to the computer industry. From time to time, we may also use your personal information to contact you to participate in a market research survey, so that we can gauge customer satisfaction and develop better services.
How we collect information
We collect information about you in several ways. For example, we ask you for your contact information and interests when you subscribe to our e-newsletter or when you sign up for an account to shop on our web store or we might ask for your contact information when you correspond with us, respond to our e-newsletters or participate in an online survey.
When we disclose information
Unless you instruct us to pass on your information to another company for them to communicate directly with you, we will never disclose your information to any other company whatsoever.
At times we may be required by law or legal process to disclose your personal information where such person or entity has asserted its lawful authority to obtain such information. We may also disclose information about you if we believe that disclosure is necessary for the public security interest or where we have reasonable grounds to believe the information could be useful in the investigation of unlawful activity and to legal counsel.
How we protect your information
We go to great lengths to secure your personal information using the very latest security measures to protect you against the loss, misuse, unauthorized access and alteration of your personal information under our control. We use a combination of data servers to guard your data from access over the Internet. The servers themselves are guarded and secured in a high-level Internet Service Facility. Only authorized tech-support staff are allowed access and every access is logged and tracked. All back-up processes also follow the same stringent security measures.
UN-Subscribing from E-newsletter or all of our communications
On all of our e-newsletters, you will see complete instructions to UN-subscribe. Once done, your information is permanently deleted from our database and you will never receive any further e-mail communications from us. You will ONLY receive e-newsletters if you subscribe to receive our newsletters via the sign-up page. As our customer, we may send you communications to promote new products or special offers.
