Collecting and using personal information
“Personal Information,” as used in this Policy, is information that specifically identifies an individual, such as an individual’s name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. Personal Information also includes information about an individual’s activities, such as information about his or her purchase history, and demographic information, such as date of birth, gender, geographic area, and preferences, when any of this information is linked to Personal Information that identifies that individual.
Personal Information may also include information about your computer hardware and software including your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information may be automatically collected by us and is used for the operation of our services, maintenance of service quality and provision of general statistics regarding use of the Services.
Personal Information does not include “aggregate” or other non-personally identifiable information. Aggregate information is information that we collect about a group or category of products, services, or users that is not personally identifiable or from which individual identities are removed. We may use and disclose aggregate information, and other non-personally identifiable information, for various purposes.
We use the following applications:
- An order management system that was developed in-house. - We collect data such as name, email, phone number, phone, address that we use to communicate with you regarding your quotes and orders and announce various special offers. We do not sell your data to any third parties.
- SearchSpring is the software we use for site search, merchandising and conversion optimization on the BigCommerce platform

"Cookies" and "tags"
When you visit our website and Customer Portal, we collect certain information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with "usage data," such as the number of visitors we receive or what pages are visited most often. This data helps us to analyze and improve the usefulness of the information we provide on our website.
Like most commercial website owners, we may use what is known as "cookie" technology. A "cookie" is an element of data that a website can send to your browser when you link to that website. It is not a computer program and has no ability to read data residing on your computer or instruct it to perform any step or function. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the website is able to recognize repeat users, track usage patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. The cookie does not extract other personal information about you, such as your name or address.
