COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY
This site is owned and operated by Engineered Ceramics®. Your privacy on the internet is of the utmost importance to us. At Engineered Ceramics®, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.
Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
INFORMATION ENGINEERED CERAMICS® GATHERS AND TRACKS
Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions through our contact form and from participation in surveys.
Engineered Ceramics® gathers information through aggregated tracking information via Google Analytics. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers’ needs. Under no circumstances does Engineered Ceramics® divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
ENGINEERED CERAMICS® GATHERS USER INFORMATION IN THE FOLLOWING PROCESSES:
When filling out our contact form, the user must provide a way for us to contact them. This information is used only to reply to visitor inquiries and not used for any other purpose.
Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
Engineered Ceramics® tracks user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Engineered Ceramics® does break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and device type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser). Tracking is used to determine number of users, organic keyword entries, bounce rates, and user behavior patterns. No demographic information is gathered from users of the site.
USE OF INFORMATION
Engineered Ceramics® uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide to respond to visitor inquiries. This information may be shared with our parent company SELEE Corporation (www.selee.com), if we feel they can better handle a specific inquiry.
We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users. But we don’t track which terms a particular user enters.
Engineered Ceramics® operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
