Privacy

Your privacy is important to Tecolote Research, Inc. This statement discloses the information practices for Tecolote Research, Inc. Web sites, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.

We have implemented these practices for the all of Tecolote's websites. We have instructed our webmasters to include information on these privacy practices wherever personal information is collected on this site.

In general, you can visit this site without telling us who you are and without revealing any information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may need information from you.

You may choose to give us personal information, such as your name and address or email address that may be needed, for example, to correspond with you, to process an order or to provide you with a subscription. You may also choose to provide your resume and employment history to Tecolote in seeking a position with our company. It is our intent, with this privacy policy, to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you on the Internet. See our application page for additional information regarding collection of employment information. If you tell us that you do not want us to use this information as a basis for further contact with you, we will respect your wishes.

Information Security & Quality

We intend to protect the quality and integrity of your personally identifiable information. We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures to help us keep your information secure, accurate, current, and complete.

We will make a sincere effort to respond in a timely manner to your requests to correct inaccuracies in your personal information. To correct inaccuracies in your personal information please return the message containing the inaccuracies to the sender with details of the correction requested.

Cookies & Other Technologies

We sometimes collect anonymous information from visits to our sites to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit and we also measure visitor activity on Tecolote Research, Inc. Web sites, but we do so in ways that keep the information anonymous. This anonymous information is sometimes known as “clickstream data.” Tecolote Research, Inc. or its analytic vendors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics to help us provide better customer service and a better user experience on this site.

Also, when we collect personal data from you in connection with a transaction we may extract some information about that transaction in an anonymous format and combine it with other anonymous information such as clickstream data. This anonymous information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. None of this information is reviewed at an individual level. If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner, you can either disable your cookies or opt-out at the order or request page.

We collect the anonymous information we mentioned in the previous paragraphs through the use of various technologies, including one called "cookies". A cookie is an element of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. Some Tecolote Research, Inc. pages use cookies, sent by Tecolote Research, Inc. or other technologies to better serve you while you are here or when you return to the site. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, some areas of some sites may not function properly.

While few, if any, of Tecolote Research, Inc.’s Web sites are directed towards children, we are committed to comply with applicable laws and requirements, such as the United States’ Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
