What Information Do We Collect from You and How Do We Use It?
IP address. When you visit our Web site, our server automatically recognizes your Internet Protocol address (IP address) or domain name. In order to enhance our Web site, we may track the way our visitors and customers are using the site. Personal information, such as your name and e-mail address, is not included in this analysis. Unless you provide it, we do not collect or know your name or e-mail address. We do not follow your browsing path outside of warehouse.com.

Cookies. In addition, like most other e-commerce Web sites, our site uses "cookies" -- small files placed temporarily in your Internet browser -- to keep track of your stay at our Web site. The text in a cookie, by itself, only tells us that you have visited our site before. A cookie generated by our site contains no information about you and does not gather information from your computer about you. It contains only an alphanumeric ID that, for example, allows you to retrieve your shopping basket. In this way, the cookie lets you continue shopping where you left off with your last visit without losing any of the items in your list.

Personal Information. When you place an order, download a demo, or provide feedback, we ask you to provide information including your name, postal address, e-mail address and, in the case of product orders, credit card number. Except to verify credit card information to complete your order, we do not use or release any credit card or financial information for any purpose.

If you provide us with your postal address, e-mail address or telephone number, you may receive our catalog or other promotional mailings, e-mails or telephone calls. If you receive e-mail from us that you would rather not receive, simply send us an e-mail containing your exact e-mail address in the body text at
hazmat@hazshipper.com and the word "REMOVE" in the subject heading of the e-mail. If you do not wish to receive our catalog, other promotional mailings or telephone calls, please write to us at the address set forth below. We will be happy to respect your request not to participate in our direct marketing programs.

We do not share e-mail names collected on our site for purposes of permitting other companies to market to you through e-mail. Providing us your e-mail address will not result in your receiving unsolicited commercial e-mail from any third party.

The personally identifying information you provide us and information regarding your order may be disclosed to certain third parties that assist us in the ordinary course of business, subject to appropriate confidentiality agreements. These vendors may include (but are not limited to) our catalog printer, common carriers, mail list and market analysis bureaus, credit card or leasing companies and in some cases the manufacturers of the product you purchase. Please contact us at the below address and we will be happy to direct you to these vendors if you would like to review their privacy policies and practices.

Information From Children. We do not direct our Web site to children under thirteen (13) years of age. Individuals under eighteen (18) should consult with their parent or guardian about the use of this site for their benefit.

Aggregate Information. We reserve the right to disclose to third parties aggregate, non-personal information about our users and their usage of this Web site and any related service. Any information disclosed will be in the form of aggregate data, such as overall patterns or demographic reports that do not describe or identify any individual user.

Transmission Errors or Unauthorized Acts. Although we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure. We will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties.

Required by Law. In extreme cases, where required by law, we may be forced to release information regarding our customers to permit the investigation of credit card fraud, illegal use of the Internet, or cases of misconduct on our Web site.

Other Web Sites. This Privacy Policy only addresses HazShipper.com information gathering practices. To the extent that you disclose personal information to other Web sites, you are subject to other Web sites’ privacy policies. We encourage you to review a third party Web sites’ privacy policies before you disclose any personal information which may be collected by a third party.

Change of Ownership. In the event that either of our Web sites become owned or controlled by other individuals or entities, the information we have collected may be transferred to such party or parties. In this case, such individuals or entities will follow this Privacy Policy in the place of our Web sites’ current owners.
