1. Types of Information Collected
a. Personal Information Collected. There are areas on the Site where you can share information that is unique to an individual; such as your name, company name, postal address, e-mail address, phone number, zip code, and credit card information (collectively “Personal Information”). You can also purchase products with your credit card. Accordingly, we may request your credit card information for shipping, billing, and credit card validation purposes. We ask for this information in order to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product. If you communicate with us by e-mail or complete online forms, we may require Personal Information that personally identifies you. Glukos may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of having someone contact you for additional information, or in response to your request for information from us.
b. Information from Children. Glukos does not knowingly solicit or collect information from anyone under 13 years of age. If your child subscribes to receive information from Glukos without your knowledge, simply follow the instructions on our e-mail and unsubscribe immediately. Parents can also contact our customer service department to access, change, or delete the Personal Information that has been submitted by a child.
c. Cookies and Tracers. Glukos may collect information about you and your use of our Site whenever you visit this Site. For instance, we may collect various forms of information such as entry and exit points for our Site (i.e., referring URLs or domain names), site traffic statistics, operating system and browser type (collectively “Traffic Data”). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for marketing purposes or for improving your experience on the Site. In addition, when you request pages on our Site, our servers automatically log your IP address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Glukos may store some information on your computer in the form of a “cookie” or similar file to help us maintain and improve this Site in many ways. A “cookie” is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a Web server. It functions as your identification card, recording such things as Internet addresses, passwords, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. With most Internet browsers, you can erase “cookies” from your computer hard drive, block all “cookies,” or receive a warning before a “cookie” is stored. 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 a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Please refer to your browser instructions to learn more about these functions. Enabling cookies allows you to take full advantage of all the features on the Site and we recommend that you leave them turned on. If you elect to block the cookies, we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience on our Site.
In some instances, Glukos may use tracking scripts or “tracers” that recognize a unique identifier from a cookie placed on your hard drive by another website. These are used by Glukos solely to gauge the success of our own advertising. For instance, Glukos may use a tracer to determine whether you visit certain Web pages where Glukos may have placed a banner ad. Glukos does not use tracers to gather information on your use of the Internet unrelated to Glukos. Please note that Glukos does not use tracers to identify your personal information, and you remain anonymous unless and until you communicate with Glukos via e-mail or complete on-line forms.
