For each visitor browsing our website, our web sever automatically recognizes and stores the visitor’s IP address (the Internet address of visitor’s computer) to determine which areas of our site is being visited and how long each visitor spends there. This information helps us to understand visitors’ traffic patterns through our website so that we can enhance the overall usability of our website. Your computer provides this information automatically each time you log on, unless you’ve activated blocking technology available in some browsers. While we do not generally require that you provide us with individually identifiable information in order to visit and use our website, at times we may ask you to provide us with personal information such as your E-mail address, name, mailing address, telephone number, credit card number, demographic information, or persistent identifier (such as user name and password) which is associated with individually identifiable information, to enable you to make a purchase, register a product, correspond with us, enter a sweepstakes, participate in an on-line survey, subscribe to a mailing list or newsletter, or register for special purchase discounts. If you choose not to provide it for those activities, you may not be able to participate in them.
The information you provide will be kept confidential and used to support your customer relationship with Simula. Among other things, we want to use this data to tailor your experience at our website. Unless you instruct us otherwise, we will send you information about our various product upgrades, special offers and other new products and services from Simula that we feel may be of interest to you. Only Simula (or agents working on behalf of Simula and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct mailings. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us when you give us your personal information. At any time should you choose to, you could opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the opt-out section below. Simula will not share your personal information to any outside organization for its use in marketing or solicitation without your consent. Your information may be shared with agents or contractors of Simula for the purpose of performing services for Simula. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company. We only provide third party agents with the minimum amount of information needed to complete the requested service or transaction.
Other sites which are linked to/from our website may have different policies. Since we do not control these websites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on those sites for details.
We protect the personal information you share with us. At Simula, access to your personal information is limited to people who need it to do their job. In addition, it is our policy to maintain the integrity of any personal information within our possession. To prevent security breaches, Simula collects and stores all personal information in a separate location from this website, with no connection to the Internet or any other network.
Simula may also collect, aggregate and maintain anonymous information about the online visitors to our website, such as visitors’ hobbies, interests, purchasing habits and the like. This data can then be used to tailor Simula’s website content and advertising to deliver a better experience for our visitors. In addition, Simula may also share such aggregate information about our visitors with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties; for example, to inform them about the percentage of male/female visitors or percentage of visitors within a particular age range.
