What Data We Collect

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We do not solicit or maintain personal data on any EU residents or companies.

When a visitor requests information from a Website, we automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information about the request. This information includes the IP address of the computer making the request, the time and date of the request, the type of web browser being used, and, sometimes, the page from which the visitor is coming. The information does not contain the visitor’s name or email address.

Power Automedia analyzes this information to learn about how visitors are using the content of the Websites and to allocate resources effectively and improve content.

Personally Identifying Information

In certain situations, we may collect personally identifiable information from you. For example, we may collect our users’ first and last names, email address, phone number, and physical address.

Except as specifically stated herein, Power Automedia does not share or sell personally identifiable information to other companies.

If Power Automedia is acquired by another company, that company will take on all responsibility for the personal information we collect and it will assume all rights and obligations with respect to that information. Should this happen, the acquiring company may implement its own policy with respect to your information.

When directed by a court of law or other government entity, or if we have a good faith basis to believe such action is necessary to comply with the law, we may be obligated to disclose personal information. In such an event, we will comply with the law and make commercially reasonable efforts to notify you, if legal.

You may opt out of receiving any emails when you sign up for one of our newsletters, contests, promotions, or other offerings.

Please include your name, email address, and the website for which you were registered so that we can effectively remove you from our lists.
