21st Century Computing believes that electronic privacy is crucial to the ongoing success of the Internet as a service, commercial, and entertainment medium. Our policy is to keep the personal information we receive from our sites completely confidential, and used solely for internal purposes. We will not share your personal information with any other parties for commercial or marketing purposes.
21st Century Computing will not willfully disclose any individually identifiable information about its users to any third party.
Use of Personal Information
Because we collect information on our Web sites for various reasons, we have outlined what information we collect and what we do with it in the following sections:
Registration and/or Request Forms
Some of our sites contain registration and/or request forms that require users to give us contact information such as their name and e-mail address. We use customer contact information from the registration and request forms to send you information about our company and to contact you when necessary.
Our sites use order forms for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect your contact information (such as your e-mail address) and financial information (such as account or credit card numbers). Contact information from the order form is used to process orders and also to send information about our company to our customers when necessary. We use financial information to bill you for products and services that you have purchased.
Occasionally, we ask users to voluntarily participate in online surveys. Our online surveys may ask visitors for contact information (e.g. e-mail address), financial information (e.g. yearly combined household income), and demographic information (e.g. zip code, age, location). We keep this information strictly confidential, and use it to help us optimize our products and sites for our users.
We may also collect demographic and profile data at our sites. We use this data to tailor our visitors' experience at our sites, showing you content that we think you might be interested in, and displaying the content according to your preferences and location.
In each case, users may choose to opt out of receiving future mailings; see the opt-out policy section below.
Cookies, by themselves, cannot be used to find out the identity of any user. 21st Century Computing will only store information that adds to your browsing experience. This information is not personally identifiable.
If for some reason you would rather not take advantage of the benefits made possible with cookies, most Web browsers allow you to reject cookies or to choose which cookies to accept. Check your browser's documentation and help files, or contact your browser vendor, for more information about its cookie features.
Use of IP Addresses
We use your computer's IP (Internet Protocol) address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web sites. Your IP address is used to help identify you and your time spent at our sites, and to gather broad demographic information.
This allows us to see which parts of our sites users are visiting. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means, for instance, that a user's session will be tracked, but the user will remain anonymous.
21st Century Computing sites contain links to other sites outside the 21st Century Computing domains. 21st Century Computing is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.
Some areas of our sites make use of chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or newsgroups that are open to our customers, and in some cases, the public. Please remember that any information that you disclose in these areas becomes public information; you should exercise caution when deciding whether to disclose your personal information.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. When a user submits personal information, it is kept on a private server not accessible from the Internet. This prevents any malicious use of your information.
All financial information that is submitted to our Web sites is encrypted and is stored on private servers that are not accessible from the Internet. Further, users can select to transmit order information over a secure connection, which increases the security of each transaction.
Our site provides users the opportunity to opt out of receiving communications from 21st Century Computing. The 21st Century Computing group of sites are all handled from the www.21st Century Computing.com domain.
Users have the following options for removing their information from our database, or to not receive future communications:
- Send e-mail to remove me from mailing lists
Please specify which mailing list or other service to have your name removed from.
- Send mail, indicating which mailing list or service to have your name removed from, to the following postal address:
