We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.
What sort of information does Sigtek collect and why?
- IP Address - Your IP Address is a unique number assigned by your service provider (ISP) which identifies your computer. We collect this information mainly to prevent abuse of our systems and our users. An example is our Newsletter signup page. We collect your IP address along with other information during this process.
- E-Mail Address - Your email address is required to verify your identity and prevent abuse of our forum, newsletter and other systems.
- Personal Details - This includes things like first and last name, location etc. This data is only collected for the forum and newsletter sections of our website as both require verification of your identity to prevent abuse of our members and server system.
- User Agent - A user agent is simply the type and version of your browser. This takes the form of, for example: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20080201 Firefox/22.214.171.124. This data is collected for two reasons, first to enable us to tailor certain aspects of our website due to inconsistencies with browsers and second, as pure statistical analysis to help us plan our website for the future.
