Registration Information

The Web Site requires basic information about all Registered Users, Buyers, and Sellers (hereinafter “you”), such as name, userID, company name, contact information, address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers, and specialty interests. This identifiable information is used to create a personal business profile for you. That profile is stored securely on our servers - sensitive information is encrypted for your protection. Your profile means that we can deliver information and services to you that are customized to your interests and business needs. Some of the services on the Web Site may be offered in conjunction with a partner company. Currently, these services do not require sharing information with partner companies. If future services require information sharing, you will be alerted in this section of this page.

In addition to helping the Web Site serve your interests and business needs , your profile is used to help us understand usage and commerce trends on the Web Site. Our analysis of usage and commerce trends takes the form of aggregated statistics and is anonymous - your name and contact information are never associated with usage and commerce patterns. The Web Site may distribute trend information to you or third parties (although it does not do so currently). Again, that information would only contain statistics about usage and commerce; no personal information would be included to third parties. If you prefer not to be part of this trend analysis, even anonymously, please see our description of opting out of service.
