Anonymous Data Collection:
As with virtually every website on the Internet, the Web server that hosts vet-tech.com
automatically collects and analyses traffic logs. These logs contain such anonymous
data as the names of browsers that are used to connect to the site and the IP
Addresses of the computers through which those connections are made. This data
is used to track traffic patters into, out of, and through different parts of
the site. Such information helps us to predict and supply visitors' interests
and content needs more efficiently and effectively. This data does not contain
any personally identifiable information about you.
What are cookies and how does Vet-Tech® use them?
A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web page
or server and stored on your computer's hard drive. It is generally impossible
for any website to read the cookie other than the one that served it to you in
the first place. In other words, if the next site you visit is microsoft.com,
Microsoft will NOT be able to read the cookie you got from vet-tech.com. Cookies
are perfectly safe and private, and cannot be used to run any programs or to deliver
any viruses to your computer. Cookies are an industry standard tool, and you'll
members of the site and to connect website visitors to the information (stored
on our computers) that they have submitted using forms. Cookies may also contain the url of the last page on the site you most recently visited. A Vet-Tech® cookie is set or modified when you enter the site, register for membership, log into the members
section, or submit other form data.
Cookies are modified or expired when you log out. Vet-Tech® cookies will expire (become
unreadable by the Web server) after a specific amount of time.
Because a cookie is used to determine if you are logged in, you will not be able to stay logged in or use other features of this website unless your browser is configured to accept
cookies. Most browsers accept cookies by default, but if you have disabled that
feature for some reason you may want to re-enable it while you're using this site. Vet-Tech® cookies don't contain any personally identifiable information
Personally Identifiable Information:
Vet-Tech® collects personally identifiable information in several ways from different
parts of our website. Mailing list registration only requires a valid email address.
Membership registration requires your full name and your
company's name, phone number, email address, & mailing
address. A user name & password must be chosen for
registration. Similar contact information may be collected from non-members before
downloading product literature in PDF format. Contact information is also collected
in surveys, contact and feedback forms, and so on, although it is not always required.
Once you enter any of the above described personal information, you may no longer
be anonymous to Vet-Tech®. Usage logs are kept of visitors' activities in certain
areas of the website and are linked to personal information files whenever possible.
Data from email newsletters (responses, click-throughs, and open rates) are treated
likewise. This is done in an effort to measure the number of individuals using
the website or being reached through the use of it, to measure the needs and
interests of customers and site visitors, and to create a general demographic
profile of the customer base that Vet-Tech® serves online.
No personal information is ever made public on the website.
Personal information that you enter on this site is collected and stored by Vet-Tech® alone. When someone registers as a full member or downloads product information
and elects to be contacted by a Vet-Tech® representative, then their information
may be shown to a qualified representative who works directly for Vet-Tech®. Information is stored on our computers in the strict confidence
of a few specially authorized Vet-Tech® employees and is never sold, rented, or
disclosed in any form to any third party. We do NOT share, sell, or rent
our mailing list.
Vet-Tech® must reserve the right to disclose any amount of collected information,
without notice, in the unlikely event that we are required to do so by law or
in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the
edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on our company or website;
(b) protect and defend the rights or property of Vet-Tech®, (c) act under exigent
circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our website or the public,
(d) for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain,
service, and improve our products and services.
Your choices regarding data collection and storage:
You may edit your current membership registration information at any time after logging
into the site. You may also delete
your current registration at any time. If you choose to change your user name
or delete your current registration, someone else will be able to register with
your old user name. Archived versions of member registrations are kept for the sake
of historical data and to analyze site usage statistics over time. You should
understand that the data you change or delete from your membership registration does not actually disappear from computer memory, although this privacy
policy will still apply to that data.
You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying
your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be
notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject
all cookies you will be unable to use those Vet-Tech® services that require cookies
in order to participate.
