Privacy Policy

Welker Engineered Products considers the privacy of its clients to be very important. Personal information and email addresses collected during the normal course of business will not be sold or traded and will be used for internal purposes only.

AGGREGATE INFORMATION - We collect certain Aggregate information, such as tracking the Internet address of the domains from which you visit our site and analyzing this data for trends and statistics, tracking your IP address (the number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you are using the Web), and tracking your browser type. We use this Aggregate information to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer our site, and to gather broad demographic information. None of this information is connected with your Personal Information.

USE OF IP ADDRESSES - An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Internet. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. Welker Engineered Products and/or its affiliates may collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, and to audit the use of our website. When Customers request pages from our website, our servers log the requesting Customers' IP addresses. We normally will not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that Customers' sessions will be logged, but Customer identity remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a Customer when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service or to protect our service, website, or any person, or where it is otherwise permitted by law.

RESPONSES TO E-MAIL INQUIRIES - When Visitors or Customers send e-mail inquiries to Welker Engineered Products, the return e-mail address is used to answer the e-mail inquiry we receive. Welker Engineered Products does not use the return e-mail address for any other purpose and does not share the return e-mail address with any third party.

VOLUNTARY CUSTOMER SURVEYS - We may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary.

"COOKIES" AND HOW WELKER USES THEM - A "cookie" is a small data file that can be placed on your hard drive when you visit certain websites. Welker Engineered Products may use cookies to collect, store, and sometimes track information for statistical purposes to improve the products and services we provide and to manage our telecommunications networks. These cookies do not enable third parties to access any of your customer information. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If you'd prefer, you can set yours to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent. However, it is possible that some parts of the site will not function if you do so. Advertisers and partners may also use their own cookies. We do not control use of these cookies and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES - Welker Engineered Products is not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of websites to which it may link and our privacy policy does not apply to websites to which we may link. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information. These other sites are not subject to the Welker Engineered Products privacy policy and Welker Engineered Products is not responsible for the privacy policies for these other sites, nor for the use of any information that these sites may collect. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out Information online (for example, via message boards or chat lines), that Information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While Welker Engineered Products and its affiliates strive to protect their Customers' Information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any Information you disclose online and so you disclose such Information at your own risk.

DATA SECURITY - Welker Engineered Products is committed to taking reasonable measures to protect your Personal Information from theft, misuse and alteration. Although Welker Engineered Products' security efforts are consistent with industry practices, complete privacy, confidentiality, and security are not yet possible over the Internet. The Customer agrees that since the Internet is not a fully secure medium for the communication of information, and since privacy and confidentiality cannot be guaranteed, use of Welker Engineered Products' services may cause the Customer's information to be accessed by, or disclosed to, other persons. Therefore, the Customer agrees that Welker Engineered Products shall not be responsible or liable for any damage that the Customer, or any other person, may suffer in connection with the communication of private, confidential, or sensitive information using Welker Engineered Products' services. While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining the Customer's information.

USE OF INFORMATION - Welker Engineered Products does not make any client data available to third parties. We do not sell lists, accept advertising, or generate any third-party revenue from the data that is generated on this site. We do not share data from any client with other clients. We take the information we receive from individuals responding to our Customer Surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other Welker Engineered Products customers to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated; non-personally identifying information may be shared with third parties.

However, Welker Engineered Products may disclose personal information about Visitors or Members, or information regarding your use of the Services or websites accessible through our Services, for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including: to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Acceptable Use Policy or other user policies; to operate the Services properly; or to protect Welker Engineered Products and our Members.

Welker Engineered Products may disclose or access account Information for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services. Welker Engineered Products disclaims any intention to censor, edit or engage in ongoing review or surveillance of communications stored on or transmitted through its facilities by customers or others. Welker Engineered Products will, however, review, delete or block access to communications that may harm Welker Engineered Products, its customers or third parties. The grounds on which Welker Engineered Products may take such action include, but are not limited to, actual or potential violations of Welker Engineered Products' Acceptable Use Policy.

REVISIONS TO THIS POLICY - Welker Engineered Products reserves the right to revise, amend, or modify this policy, and our other policies and agreements at any time and in any manner. Notice of any revision, amendment, or modification will be posted.

CHILDREN'S PRIVACY - Protecting children's privacy is especially important to us. It is our policy to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. Welker Engineered Products recommends that children ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to Welker Engineered Products, or to anyone else online.
