Liberty Hardware is continually improving and adding new functionality and features to its websites and improving and adding to our existing products, services, and programs. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law, and the changing nature of technology, Liberty Hardware's data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, Liberty Hardware will post the changes on our websites to notify you of the changes. We encourage you to check this page frequently. This policy was last updated on February 2, 2006.
Other than cookies, as described below, the only personal data Liberty Hardware currently collects through its websites is the information you voluntarily give us when you use our sites. For example, you may use this site to contact Liberty Hardware with questions and comments. When you fill out a form on our websites, you may provide your name and other contact information, including your company's name, your e-mail address, and your mailing address or the mailing address of your company or other personal information. If you do not wish to fill out all of the information on the form you are not required to do so. Most of our registration forms require only your name and e-mail address. When you submit information to us through the Liberty Hardware websites, you will receive a confirmation e-mail if you enter a valid e-mail address. When you use our websites to search for information on products or services, you are not providing us with any personal information. We offer the search features as a service to you. Liberty Hardware does not collect or retain any identifying information about you when you use the search features.
Liberty Hardware uses the personal data information you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. Liberty Hardware and our affiliates also use this information to help us improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services. If you so choose, Liberty Hardware and our affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt-out" of receiving future communications. Similarly, we may provide "subscription" e-mail services, either directly or through affiliates, which enable you to receive current news about Liberty Hardware products or services. For all such services, we will provide an opportunity to "opt-out" of, or cancel, the subscription.
In addition to the information you provide when you use our websites, Liberty Hardware uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our websites. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access our websites, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they view. We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they accessed our sites (for example, if they connected to a Liberty Hardware website by clicking on one of our banner ads). This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our sites. Liberty Hardware and our affiliates use this anonymous data and share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.
Liberty Hardware does not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under thirteen, please do not give us any personal data. If you have reason to believe that a child has provided personal data to Liberty Hardware, please contact us, and we will try to delete that information from our databases.
