InStock Fasteners Privacy Statement

This is a detailed statement describing the privacy protection given the information InStock Fasteners collects from our customers. Subject to the requirements of applicable law, InStock Fasteners' privacy practices are as follows:

It is the policy of InStock Fasteners to maintain, to the fullest extent practicable, the privacy of the information each customer provides. Our primary goal in collecting personal information from customers is to provide them with an efficient and personalized experience while using our services. The information we gather allows InStock Fasteners to provide services and features we believe will best meet our customers' needs and streamline their access to and use of the InStock Fasteners website. With three exceptions, none of the information that you, as a customer would provide to us, and none of the information we collect as a consequence of your use of the InStock Fasteners website will be disclosed to any third party without your direction or consent. The exceptions are: (1) information required to be disclosed pursuant to applicable laws, regulations, or legal process; (2) information aggregated and disclosed in a manner that does not identify a customer individually and does not disclose any information that would enable a third party to contact the customer; and (3) information disclosed in response to an emergency or pursuant to a good faith belief on the part of InStock Fasteners that such disclosure is required in order to protect the safety of the public, other customers, or the integrity of the InStock Fasteners website or any intellectual property rights associated therewith.  

What does this mean? It means you can be confident that the information you provide when registering with, or seeking information using, the InStock Fasteners website will, to the fullest extent practicable, remain private unless you agree otherwise or you disclose such information to a third party. It also means that by accepting the InStock Fasteners Terms Of Service agreement and making use of certain of our services, some of your customer information will be used and will be disclosed, but only in those ways necessary to provide you with the services you request. For example, unless you ask us not to, InStock Fasteners itself will use certain of the contact information you provide to email you necessary information - such as changes in the InStock Fasteners website or service. Likewise, when you use the InStock Fasteners service to place an order for parts, track existing orders, or perform inventory management functions, by necessity some of your personally identifiable information will be used by us and disclosed to the carrier or other appropriate third parties. By accepting the Terms Of Service Agreement, which is a requirement of registration, a customer expressly consents to our use and disclosure of his or her personally identifiable information in accordance with the terms of this privacy policy.

Information We Collect And How We May Use It
In order to make full use of the services InStock Fasteners has, and may make available in the future, a customer must register and provide the information required on our registration pages. To offer the best level of service, we strongly encourage each customer to provide complete information.

"Cookies" are used on certain pages of our site. Among the reasons we employ cookies is that they allow a customer to enter his or her password less frequently. Cookies are stored on the customer's hard drive, not on our site. Most cookies are "session cookies," meaning that they are automatically deleted at the end of a session. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on our site that are only available through the use of a cookie.

InStock Fasteners automatically tracks certain information about each customer based upon his or her use of the system. This information is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis, and is used internally to better understand and serve our users. This information may include your IP address, the URL from which you accessed the InStock Fasteners website (regardless of whether this URL is on our site), which URL you go to next (regardless of whether this URL is on our site), and which browser you used.

Your email address, mailing address, and telephone number are used to contact you regarding administrative notices, new product and service offerings, and communications relevant to the use of our site. If you do not wish to receive these communications, all you need do is to direct us not to make such contacts by so indicating on the appropriate web page. 

We use personally identifiable information about you to improve our communication, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and product offerings, and to customize our site's content, layout, and services. We believe these uses allow us to improve our site and better tailor it to meet your needs.

As explained above, it is our policy not to sell, rent, or otherwise disclose any personally identifiable information about any of our customers to any third party. Again, as stated above, we may, however, aggregate information gathered on our site. We may, as well, disclose such aggregated information to advertisers and for other marketing and promotional purposes. In these situations, however, we would not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to personally identify any customer. Certain information, such as customer passwords, credit card numbers, or bank account numbers - even in the aggregate - would not be disclosed to marketers or advertisers at all.

Changing Your Personally Identifiable Information
Following registration, you can review and change, or request deletion from the InStock Fasteners website database, any or all of your information submitted during registration including, but not limited to: (1) your name; (2) your password; (3) your contact information, such as the email address, conventional mail address, telephone numbers, and fax numbers; (4) your various "ship to" and "billing" addresses; and (5) your credit card numbers. We do want to make clear, however, that due to technical constraints flowing from the fact that we back up our systems, we can never be certain that all personally identifiable information will be completely removed from our databases. If that happens, we will continue to treat all such information as private.

InStock Fasteners conforms to industry standards in attempting to safeguard the confidentiality of our customers' personally identifiable information. Even though we use such techniques as firewalls, encryption and Secure Socket Layers, be aware that no information on the Internet is absolutely 100% secure.
