Normal Web site usage
You can visit preton.com to read product information or use our online tools without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. The only information we collect and store during normal Web site usage is the name of your Internet service provider, the Web site that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time of those requests. We use this information to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of customer visits. For normal Web site usage, we do not collect or store personally identifiable information such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, phone number or social security number.
Personally identifiable information we collect
There are instances where Preton requests personally identifiable information to provide the Web site visitor a service or correspondence (such as software downloads, promotions and mailed brochures). This information, such as name, mailing address, e-mail address, type of request and possibly additional information, is collected and stored in a manner appropriate to the nature of the data and is used to fulfill your request. The information you provide is used by Preton to improve the services we provide you. It is never provided to any other company for that company's independent use.
We place e-mail links and forms on this site to allow you to contact us directly. Preton will only use this information to identify the user. We will not use this information for anything other than to resolve the matter identified in the e-mail. By using this site, you agree not to type or post any fraudulent or illegal messages as part of any e-mail, forum, chat or other Preton-related, electronic communications medium. You also acknowledge that you are solely responsible for the information and electronic communications content that you create.
