Pro-Tec Data takes user privacy very seriously. Pro-Tec Data relies on a reputable Internet Service Provider ("ISP") to implement generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Despite the ISP's precautions, Pro-Tec Data cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to your personally identifiable information. Pro-Tec Data reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to alter and update this Privacy Policy from time to time. Visitors to our Site may want to review the current version of the Privacy Policy each time they return to our Site. The date of the Policy is reflected at the bottom of this document.

We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (1) comply with law or comply with legal process served upon us or our agents, representatives and affiliates, (2) protect and defend our rights or property or those of our users or (3) protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Our Site may use cookies and other technology to store pertinent user information during a session to speed navigation and keep track of items and to collect anonymous traffic data that we may use to enhance our Site and for marketing and promotional purposes. The "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive new cookies, and how to disable cookies altogether.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to any information you may disclose publicly in any blog, chat rooms, message boards, or similar web pages, including those hosted on or linked to our Site. You should keep in mind that whenever you publicly disclose information about yourself online—for example, via blogs, message boards or chat rooms—that information could be collected and used by people whom you do not know. In addition, certain blogs, message boards and similar user forums may display IP addresses along with the message poster's name and message. Pro-Tec Data bears no responsibility for any action or policies of any third parties who collect any information users may disclose on the blogs, message boards, chat areas or other user forums, if any, on the Site.
