What information do we collect online?
We receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide in other ways. Several areas of our site allow you to make inquiries or request literature by filling out and submitting an online form.
The information you submit includes company information including address and contact information, user information, including fax and email, comments and survey responses.
How we use the information we collect
In order to make improvements to our site, we may gather information that helps show how customers use the site. For example, we might do research to determine which areas are accessed most frequently. This information is analyzed only in aggregate and not at the individual level. Personal information, such as your name and email address, is not included in the analysis.
The information we gather when you visit our site may be used in aggregate to improve the products we offer you. In the end, we hope this information will help us build a richly dynamic website that not only fulfills all your industrial product needs, but also provides an easy-to-use interface and an overall enjoyable shopping experience. In effect we want to tailor our website so that you receive more of what you want from us and less of what you don't want.
Our website is designed to build HTML pages dynamically and according to account information. Therefore, the information that is stored within our databases is retrieved so that only those registered and authorized users have access to your account information. Email information is requested so that we can email you a confirmation of your order. All other data is only used for transaction processing within business context as implied between buyer and seller agreements.
How we use email
After you place an order on our site, you will receive an email confirmation of your order placement. You will receive these emails only if you have provided your email address during checkout or as part of registering with the site.
In addition, we may use email for providing you with information on promotions, outages and other events. Please note that we do not sell or share email addresses with other companies. We do use email as a means of receiving feedback from our customers.
Are children allowed to use Applied.com
Applied.com does not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use Applied.com only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software. We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Tokenization of the entire credit card number is performed during order processing by third party. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Applied can't ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
Applied may update this policy from time to time. Updates will be posted on the site and will be effective as of the date of posting. We ask that you check the site periodically for updates to this and other policies.
