Collection of personal information

We may request and collect information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you (for example, registration forms for users of the Live Wire and Cable Co, Inc.), sign-up forms for users of the bulletin board, etc.). Personally Identifiable Information refers to any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate you.

To the extent unique information (which by itself is not Personally Identifiable Information) such as a unique identifier or an IP address is associated with Personally Identifiable information, then such unique information will also be considered Personally Identifiable Information. Personally Identifiable Information does not include information that is collected anonymously (i.e. without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not connected to an identified individual (for example the demographic information collected for Industry Surveys). We may also collect information from other members that identify. This is considered Third Party Personally Identifiable Information and includes all Personally Identifiable information that is collected through the Site from a person other than the person to whom it pertains or whom it identifies. This Statement refers to Personally Identifiable Information and Third Party Personally Identifiable Information collectively as "personal information".

Cookies

Cookies are very small text files placed on your hard drive by a computer server. They act as your identification card and are unique to you. Cookies are used only in the public areas of the Live Wire and Cable Co, Inc. Site – there are no cookies in use inside the secure SSL areas, such as the Innobook (TM). On the public areas of the Site (i.e. not the areas secured by SSL), cookies track the pages you view when browsing. Cookies help us personalize your experience at the public areas of our Site by permitting our computer server to "remember" who you are. Some of the advertisers on the public areas of the Site may use cookies to collect similar information, but we do not control the use of cookies by other Website operators or advertisers (see also "Third Parties").

Use of certain functions of the Live Wire and Cable Co, Inc. Website may require provision of personal information to other third party providers, such as a certificate authority. Other than for use directly related to the primary purpose for which the information was collected (for example, to communicate with other members of the Discussion Board), Live Wire and Cable Co, Inc. does not disclose or distribute personal information to third parties.

This Site may also contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Live Wire and Cable Co, Inc. is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other Sites or organizations. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each Site or organization that collects personal information.

Commitment to data security

This Website is dedicated to the protection of our members’ information. This includes confidential information a member submits on secure areas of the Website, and personal information. Such information is protected both online and off-line. The secure area includes the Innobook (TM) and may include other areas.

When users enter information in the secure section of the Site, that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’. In addition, you can tell when you are in a secure area as the web address begins with Https rather than Http.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user-information off-line, particularly through employee training and awareness. The servers are hosted on the Internet data centers of a third party provider whose services include semi-annual security architecture reviews and quarterly internal and external vulnerability scans. The Site is supported by firewall technology under aggressive management and concise configuration to provide 24 x 7 firewall support and maintenance. Intrusion detection monitoring, enabled by dedicated hardware and specialized software is in place 24 x 7.

If you have any questions about security at our Website, you can contact us at sean.ohara@livew-c.com.

If the Live Wire and Cable Co, Inc. privacy policy is materially changed, we will post those changes on our Website prior to the change so our members are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, how we protect it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
