OUR COLLECTION AND USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect and use information about you which will help us administer our business or provide products, services or other opportunities to you. Among other things, we use the information we learn about you to help us personalize and improve the experience you have on our website, to respond to your requests and to communicate with you.
In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers collect the domain names, not the email addresses, of visitors.
Registration Information You Provide to Us
When you register on the Site to receive news or other inquiries from Etops, we collect profile information from you (“Personally Identifiable Information”). We require that you provide the following Personally Identifiable Information:
– Your first and last name;
– Email address; and
– Other information as requested in the applicable registration pages.
At your option you may voluntarily provide additional information, including your address, phone/fax, and, in the case of seeking employment at Etops, your employment history. Although you may choose not to provide the optional information to us, it may result in some features not being available to you.
How Long We Keep Your Information:
Personal data collected will only be retained as long as necessary for business continuity or valid legal purposes.
How We Use the Information We Collect:
Site Use Information
This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Site, pages viewed, etc. Etops utilizes this information (“behavior profiles”) to measure the use of our Site and to improve the content we offer.
Personally Identifiable Information:
When you register, you consent to allow us to contact you for those purposes.
– To respond to your inquiries;
– To process an order;
– To contact you regarding account status or customer service;
– To ask you for feedback on our service;
– To let you know about products or services which may be of interest to you; or
– To allow you to access specific account information, or in the case of seeking employment at Etops, match you with appropriate job opportunities
We use your e-mail address to contact you to respond to your inquiries or to provide information on products or services to you. To help us determine whether you have received an e-mail from us, and to help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we may receive a confirmation that you have opened an e-mail from us.
Like many websites we use “cookies” to enable us to remember your password, to help us identify the portions of our Site that may be the most relevant for your needs, and to help us identify other products or services that may be of interest to you or others.
Because of the nature of our business, our products and services are not designed to appeal to minors, and therefore we do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive any information from children. Our terms and conditions of use require that any registration may only be made by those age 18 or older and that any product or service purchases may only be made by those age 18 or older. If we have reason to believe that information is being provided by a child under the age of 18, Etops will not collect the information without parental consent or parent notification, which will include the opportunity for the parent to prevent the use of the information or to prevent the child’s participation in the activity. Without parental consent, online information will only be used to respond to an unsolicited request and for no other purposes. We recognize that protecting children’s identities and privacy online is important and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents.
RESTRICTIONS ON DISCLOSING INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES

We may share with third parties experiential information or other data which does not personally identify users of our Site. For example, this might include product or service preferences of all visitors to our Site.

We do not reveal Personally Identifiable Information about you to unaffiliated third parties, unless:
– you request or authorize it;
– the information is provided to help complete a transaction for you;
– the disclosure is done as part of a purchase, transfer or sale of services or assets (e.g., in the event that substantially all of our assets are acquired by another party, customer information may be one of the transferred assets); or

We may also gather aggregated data about you and disclose such aggregated (but not Personally Identifiable) information to third parties for promotional or other purposes.
SECURITY PROCEDURES TO PROTECT INFORMATION
We maintain numerous security standards and procedures to help prevent unauthorized access to confidential information about you. Our Site uses a combination of encryption technology and authentication to protect your Personally Identifiable Information. As long as the web browser you are using supports Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”), your information will be submitted to us with a high level of security. We update and test our security technology on an ongoing basis. We have procedures limiting employee access to Personally Identifiable Information to those employees who have a business reason to know such information about you.
It is also important for you to help protect against unauthorized access by signing off of our Site each time you finish using the Site.
