Privacy Statement

A major concern on people's minds these days is privacy on the Internet, so we feel an obligation to inform you of how Alarm Distributors handles information gathered at our site, and to try and encourage you to provide a similar statement on your site(s) outlining how you handle people's information.

Alarm Distributors makes extensive use of CGI-BIN scripts and Server Side Include pages. This method of presenting information provides a great deal of flexibility and power in gathering information about our readers.

To be honest, although we love every one of our customers dearly, we don't have any interest in what you- an individual are doing at the site! We are more interested in what you as a herd are doing. We want to know how you got here, what pages you tend to visit, and what pages you don't tend to visit. So, here's the policy:

  • We do not under any circumstances, sell or disclose to any third party information gathered by any script or device.
  • The redirect (clickit.cgi) and banner rotation scripts only record view and click counts. Absolutely no other information is recorded in the database.
  • All e-mail form submissions are logged to a file. This protects against lost e-mails. The file is purged frequently.
  • We don't have a Guest Book because it is a public, readable web page. There is nothing we could do to prevent spammers from harvesting names from it.
  • As of this writing, HTTP Cookies are not being used at this site (other than to retain shopping cart info for two hours ). This is of course subject to change if we start using Cookies in our scripts, and will be reflected in this policy statement.
