INFORMATION THIS SITE GATHERS / TRACKS
To help make our site more responsive to the needs of our visitors, help you navigate between sections, tailor content to your needs and to measure traffic within our site, our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, including your IP address, when you visit our sites. They also invoke a standard feature of browser software, called a “cookie,” to assign each visitor a unique, random number, a sort of user ID, which resides on your computer. The cookie helps give us an idea of which parts of our site users are visiting and doesn’t actually identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our site.
Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), we won’t know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply. Our cookies can’t read unrelated data from your computer. Our advertisers and the third parties that provide products or services through our sites may also assign their own cookies to your browser, but we don’t control their cookies or their processes, and they do not regularly share information they gather with us.
To make use of certain features on our website (such as the catalog), dealers need to register and to provide certain information as part of the registration process. We may also ask for information from those who buy products or services or conduct other transactions on our websites. We may ask, for example, for your name, email address, street address, sex, age, city or town, zip code, and we sometimes request information on your interest in other topics.
The information you supply may help us to offer you more personalized features, to tailor our site to your interests and make it more useful to you. Of course, even if you want to remain completely anonymous, you’re still free to take advantage of the wealth of content available on our site without registration. The vast majority of our site does NOT require visitors to complete a registration form or give us contact information (such as a name and email address) to visit.
The more we know about our visitors the more value we can potentially offer them. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. But if you don’t supply the information we require, we may be unable to provide you with services we make available to other visitors to our sites. For example, while we allow anyone to read postings in our Bulletin Board / Forums without registration, asking a question or furnishing an answer requires registration, which enables visitors to modify their own posts. And we can’t send you targeted email alerting you to a relevant new service we’re offering, or articles on topics of interest to you, if you don’t tell us what you’re interested in and give us your email address. We gather such personal information only with our user’s knowledge and active permission and participation.

ADVERTISING AND COOKIES

This Web site is directed at adults, not children, and we do not seek to collect from children online contact information, or distribute to third parties any personally identifiable information from children, or entice children by the prospect of a special game, prize or other activity, to divulge information to us. We won’t knowingly allow anyone under 13 to register with our site or to provide any other personally identifying information without written approval of a parent or guardian.
