East West Engineering (EWE) is committed to ensuring the privacy of your personal information and this privacy notice is designed to voluntarily comply with current privacy legislation.
Collection And Use Of Personal Information
EWE limits its requests for information to what is required to ensure accurate delivery. Most of the information we collect is very basic and is needed to complete a purchase or provide a refund or for internal record keeping. Examples of user information that may be collected may include your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit-or debit-card information, a description of the item requested or purchased and the IP address of your computer. From time to time, we may use your information to improve our products and services, or periodically send promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.
Even if you do not make a purchase on our site, we have the ability to track usage of our web site – including the server from which the site was visited. This information is not used to track information about individuals, but is used on an aggregate level to customize our site, improve the on-line experience and plan advertising and promotions.
Information Voluntarily Provided
There are times when you may provide information to us voluntarily. This occurs when you provide your feedback to us though e-mails, return forms, letters or telephone calls. We use this information to respond to your query and to keep track of customer feedback.
EWE does not sell or otherwise share your personal information with anyone else, such as advertising agencies or marketing companies. We only send marketing information to those customers who specifically sign up an account with EWE. Customers can opt-out of receiving information by contacting our Customer Service at email@example.com or by changing their preferences in the "My Account" section of the site.
