Use of Information by Collectronics
We gather certain types of information in order to provide services to you, our clients and our business partners and to communicate with you, our clients and our business partners about matters related to our services. We also may use this information to make offers to you, help us develop and improve our website and our services and tailor our site to the interests of our clients and our business partners.
Information Collected by Collectronics
Collectronics collects two types of information about users: "Personal Information" (such as name, email address, mailing address, phone, financial history, realty ownership history and other account-related information) and "Aggregate Information" (such as information about how many users log on to our sites on a daily basis).
Personal Information Collected Online by Collectronics
Personal Information is collected online when users voluntarily register with Collectronics or its business partners to set up an account and engage our services, receive electronic newsletters or other similar communications, use community on-line services, answer surveys and other similar account-related activities.
Aggregate Information Collected Online by Collectronics
Aggregate Information is non-personally identifiable/anonymous information about you, such as age, gender, pages that you access most frequently or search terms that you enter. Aggregate Information is used in a collective manner, and no single person can be identified by that compiled information. For example, the number of people who logged into our website in a particular day is Aggregate Information that does not personally identify a specific user. Tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses is one method of collecting Aggregate Information about your activities online and information volunteered by you. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Web. The computers, which deliver the Web pages to you, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from our site, our servers log your IP address.

Collectronics will not share, sell or trade your Personal Information gathered online without your prior written approval. We do not and will not contribute to or participate in cooperative databases, which give other non-business partners or third parties access to such Personal Information.
