“Personal Information” refers to information that tells us specifically who You are, such as Your name, e-mail address, phone number, fax number, postal address and possibly information relating to certain support or customer service issues. In many cases, we need this information to provide to You all or a portion of the services that You may have requested; for example, in fulfillment of your online request for a quote for our services on a potential project.
We may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Website, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Website, how long they stay on that page and which hyperlinks, if any, they click on. This information represents a generic overview of our users, including their collective viewing habits, and allows us and third parties to modify our Website information, marketing emphasis, etc. based on user traffic and behavior. We may collect this information through the use of technologies such as “cookies” and web beacons, which are discussed in greater detail below. We collect this information in order to help enhance the Website to make for a better visitor experience.
Other Tracking Technologies
Tracking technologies may record information such as: Internet domain and host names; Internet protocol (IP) addresses; browser software and operating system types; clickstream patterns, and; dates and times that our Website are accessed. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to Your computer whenever You are surfing the web. Web servers (the computers that “serve up” webpages) automatically identify Your computer by its IP address. The Website may also use technology called “tracer tags”. These may also be referred to as “Pixels”, “Clear GIFs” or “Web Beacons”. This technology allows us to understand which pages You visit on our Website and other ways You interact with our Website, such as the frequency of Your comments posted through the Website. These tracer tags are used to help us to optimize and tailor our Website for You and other users of our Website. We may link the information we record using tracking technologies to Personal Information we collect.
