Use of Information by Cockpit USA
We gather certain types of customer information in an effort to improve your shopping experience and to communicate with you about our products, services, promotions and contests. Cockpit USA and its affiliates may also use this information to make offers to you, help us develop and improve Cockpit USA and tailor our site to your interests.
Information Collected by Cockpit USA
Cockpit USA collects two types of information about users: personal information (such as name, e-mail address, mailing address and phone and credit card numbers) and aggregate information (such as information about how many users log on to our sites on a daily basis).
Personal Information Collected Online by Cockpit USA
Personal information is collected online when users voluntarily register with Cockpit USA to purchase items, receive electronic newsletters, use community and communication services, answer surveys and enter contests and other promotional opportunities provided on Cockpit USA. We also maintain a record of your product interests and purchases online. We may receive personal usage and demographic information from our affiliates and from third parties.
Aggregate Information Collected Online by Cockpit USA
Aggregate information is non-personally identifiable/anonymous information about you, such as age, gender, types of products purchased, pages you access most frequently or search terms you enter. Aggregate information is used in a collective manner, and no single person can be identified by that compiled information. For example, the number of people who shopped at Cockpit USA who are 25 years of age is aggregate information that does not personally identify a specific user. Tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses is one method of collecting aggregate information about your activities online and information volunteered by you. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Web. The computers, which deliver the Web pages to you, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from our site, our servers log your IP address.
Sharing Information Collected Online with Third Parties, Consultants and Affiliates
Cockpit USA does reserve the right to share, sell, or trade your information with third parties regarding your personal information gathered online, such as E-mail addresses, personal information collected as a part of an online survey or other specific details about you. For privacy purposes, all information relating to our customers is stored on a highly secure server, and all credit card information is stored in an encrypted format and is not released to third parties.
Cockpit USA may share personal information gathered online with consultants and affiliates for any internal business purpose and may also divulge personal information if such information is subpoenaed or if Cockpit USA believes that membership has been used to commit unlawful acts or acts that may endanger the health or safety of another user or of the general public. In addition, Cockpit USA receives personal usage and demographic information from its affiliates and from third parties and uses this information to improve our products and services. Cockpit USA may share aggregate information with affiliates and consultants for any internal business purpose and with third parties for their advertising and promotional purposes.
