We collect two kinds of information: (a) information that can be used to identify or contact a single person; and (b) information that does not personally identify a single person, which we automatically collect when people visit our website or that you provide us.
Below are some examples of the types of personal information PerTronix may collect and how we may use it:
- You may provide your name, mail/shipping address, email address, contact preferences, credit card number and phone number (or someone else’s name, address, e-mail, or phone number when buying and sending product to them) when, for example, using our online store or in connection with a contest entry.
- You may provide certain demographic information about yourself (e.g., age, gender, purchase preference, usage frequency, etc.) when participating in a survey, poll or joining a forum.
- You may post a general comment or recommendation on our website.
Certain information may not be personally identifiable when standing alone (e.g., your age), but may become so when combined with other information (e.g., your age and name). Whether or not you provide this information is your choice; however, in many instances this type of information is required to participate in the particular activity, receive a benefit we may offer, or gain access to certain content on our website.
In the case of contingency award claims, we are required to collect your Social Security or Federal tax ID number and to obtain a completed Form W-9. We use this information to process your request, order or award, and to contact you with any questions about your request, order, or award. For security reasons, we do not recommend that you send non-public personal information, such as passwords, social security numbers, or bank account information, to us by email.
PerTronix will use your personal information as necessary to process your transactions with us. We may use your personal information to later contact you for a variety of reasons, such as customer service, providing you promotional information for our products or upcoming events, or to communicate with you about content or other information you have posted or shared with us via our website. You may "opt out" of receiving future commercial and promotional email communications from us by clicking the "unsubscribe" link included at the bottom of most emails we send, or, if you have an account with us, updating your preferences; provided, however, we reserve the right to send you transactional emails such as customer service communications.
We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our products, services, content and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes.
We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve PerTronix products, services, and customer communications.
If you enter into a sweepstake, contest, or similar promotion we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.
We consider non-personally identifiable information to be any information that does not personally identify you. Non-personally identifiable information can include certain personally identifiable information that has been de-identified; that is, information that has been rendered anonymous. We obtain non-personally identifiable information about you from information that you provide us, either separately or together with your personally identifiable information. We also automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information from you when you access our website. This information can include, among other things, IP addresses, the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.), the third party website from which your visit originated, the operating system you are using (e.g., Vista, Windows XP, Mac OS, etc.), the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, NetZero, etc.), the search terms you use on our website, the specific web pages you visit, and the duration of your visits.
PerTronix may from time to time make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with PerTronix to provide products and services, or that help PerTronix market to customers. None of your personal information, including e-mail address, however, will be sold to any other company; except, in the event of a reorganization, merger, sale or bankruptcy we may sell or otherwise transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third-party or third-parties.
PerTronix reserves the right to disclose any personal information about you if we are required to do so by law, with respect to copyright and other intellectual property infringement claims, or if we believe that such action is necessary to: (a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements of the law or legal process; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property, our website, or other users; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of our website's users or the general public.

The features, programs, promotions and other aspects of our website requiring the submission of personally identifiable information are not intended for children. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 and believe they have disclosed personally identifiable information to us, please contact us at the address set forth below.

We maintain reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect your electronic personal information stored on our systems. We do not store your credit card information on our system; it is only used to process your transaction. Please be advised, however, that while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information. In the unfortunate event that your "personally identifiable information" (as the term or similar terms are defined by any applicable law requiring notice upon a security breach) is compromised, we may notify you by e-mail (at our sole and absolute discretion) to the last e-mail address you have provided us in the most expedient time reasonable under the circumstances; provided, however, delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation. From time to time we evaluate new technology for protecting information, and when appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.
