Privacy Policy

We at the AW Gerdsen Company (referred to as "AWG," "We," "Us," or "Our") recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of certain information collected about the users and visitors of Our Web Site (referred to as "User," "You" or "Your"). This Privacy Policy discloses what information We gather, how We use it, and how to correct or change it. At AW Gerdsen Company, it is Our intention to give You an understanding about how We collect Your information and the use We make of it in the course of Our business. 

To that end, AW Gerdsen Company gathers two types of information about You: 1) data that Users provide through optional, voluntary registration on Our Web Site, and 2) data that AW Gerdsen Company gathers through aggregated tracking, mainly by tallying Web pages that are viewed by Users throughout Our Web Site. 

However, be assured that AW Gerdsen Company will not disclose Personal Information (as defined herein) to third parties without Your consent, except as may be noted in this Privacy Policy or disclosed to You when the information is submitted.

 

How Does AW Gerdsen Company Collect Information?

Optional Registration:  We collect information by specifically requesting it from You. Generally this occurs when You register at the Web Site or request information or a service. Usually, We and Our business partners use Your information to operate the Web Site and to deliver services. AW Gerdsen Company also uses Your information to inform You about other products and/or services available from AW Gerdsen Company and AW Gerdsen Company affiliates.

 

Use of Tracking Use of Internet Protocol (“IP”) Addresses:

An IP address is a unique number that is automatically assigned to Your computer whenever You are surfing the Internet so that Your computer can be identified by the main computers, known as "Web servers," that "serve up" Web pages. This allows Us to identify and gather general information and data about You, such as the Web pages You view.

AW Gerdsen Company collects IP addresses for the purposes of: helping Us diagnose problems with Our main computers, for system administration, to report aggregated information to Our business partners, and to audit the use of Our Web Site. When Users request Web pages from Our Web Site, Our Web servers log the User's IP address. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a User's session will be logged, but the User will remain anonymous to Us. For example, We collect and/or track the home server domain name, the type of computer, and the type of Web browser used by You to access this Web Site. Such collection and tracking information is gathered by Us as You navigate through this Web Site, and shall be used by Us for Our business purposes only.

We can, and will, use IP addresses to identify You when We feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with Our Web Site Terms of Use or to protect Our service, site, Users, or others.
