A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
Links to other websites
We have no control over, and no liability for, any website other than our own. If you link to another website from ours, you do so at your own risk.
More simply put: The only websites Accu-Flo Meter Service controls are the ones we own. Other companies' websites may not be as technologically sound. We do not endorse information on other websites that may be linked to ours.
Controlling your personal information
You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information in the following ways:
- whenever you are asked to fill in a form on the website, look for the box that you can click to indicate that you do not want the information to be used by anybody for direct marketing purposes
- if you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by writing to or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Information Collection and Use
The information we collect is used only to support Accu-Flo Meter Service's operations. We value our customers too much to jeopardize our relationship with them. Whether you share your personal information with us through our website, in our stores, or by other means, we will never sell or rent this information to others.
More simply put: We won't sell or rent out your private information. To anyone.
When you place an order online, by mail, phone or fax, we request certain information needed to complete your order and billing. We share this information with shipping companies and credit card processing companies in order to bill and ship your order, but we do not provide any more information than is necessary for those purposes and these companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. Contact information such as your e-mail address and phone number is used to confirm your order, or to contact you should we have questions or information for you about your order.
More simply put: We only share what's absolutely necessary with other companies to get your order to you. These companies do not keep this information.
We send marketing e-mails such as sales, promotional events, customer surveys, and newsletters to customers who have chosen to receive them. We will only use your e-mail address for these purposes if you have specifically opted into such programs. You can change your preferences or opt out of e-mail contact at any time by contacting us, by changing your Account Preferences on our website, or by selecting the Unsubscribe option available on each e-mail that we send.
More simply put: If you receive an e-mail from us, it's because you've opted to do so. If you've had enough of them, it's easy to change your preferences!
If you place an order online, you have the option of shopping as a guest or registering with us. When you register, we will provide you with a password-secured customer login that can be used for subsequent visits, order inquiry purposes, or for certain activities that require registration, such as Wish Lists.
