PROFITEC maintains high standards for your protection of privacy over the Internet. The purpose of this statement is to inform you of the types of information PROFITEC obtains about visitors to our Web pages, how the information is obtained, how it is used, how long it is retained and how you can restrict its use or disclosure.
The only information PROFITEC obtains about you and other visitors to our Web pages is information supplied voluntarily by you or other visitors. This means that you can visit our Web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. To gauge the effectiveness of our Web pages, however, PROFITEC collects some generic information about you and other visitors. Our Web servers automatically recognize a domain name (such as .com, .edu, etc.), the Web page from which you enter our Website, which pages you visit on our Web site, and how much time you spend on each page. This information does not reveal your identity. PROFITEC aggregates this information and uses it to evaluate and improve our Web pages for your benefit. In some instances, PROFITEC may provide the aggregated information to third parties to assist us to evaluate and improve our Web pages for your benefit.
PROFITEC strives to protect the safety and privacy of children that may use our Web pages. PROFITEC’s Web pages do not contain any inappropriate information for viewing by children. PROFITEC does not knowingly collect information about children and our Web pages are not directed to children. We believe that children should obtain their parents’ consent before providing any personal information. Ordering online products and services from PROFITEC is limited to adults.
Furthermore, you can choose to provide individual information to PROFITEC in a number of ways through our Web pages by ordering service(s) from us, sending us e-mail, applying for a job, or registering to receive news or public policy information. If you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, PROFITEC will use that information for such purpose (such as to provide the information you requested or to consider you for a particular job). When you use our Web pages to order service(s), or to request information about a service(s), PROFITEC may use the information as we would use the same information obtained offline. In the event that you do not wish to receive this information, you may notify us of your preference. PROFITEC does not sell individual information that we obtain online. Also, PROFITEC does not disclose individual information provided to us online to anyone outside of PROFITEC and its affiliates, PROFITEC’s underlying service provider(s), unless you specifically authorize it, it is required by law or disclosure is necessary to protect the safety of customers, employees or property. PROFITEC uses the information provided when placing an order to complete that order.
PROFITEC does not send unsolicited junk email (spam). However, PROFITEC may use email to: communicate with you, confirm orders placed online, respond to your emails and send information that you requested.

PROFITEC may expand its capabilities for obtaining information about you and other users in the future in order to improve the services it can offer you.

PROFITEC has adopted standard privacy practices to safeguard your privacy in all aspects of our business.
In order to maintain the authenticity and confidentiality of the information you provide online to PROFITEC, including PROFITEC’s online purchase order forms, PROFITEC utilizes secure server technology which uses a secure socket layer (SSL) protocol to secure a connection between your browser and PROFITEC’s Web server. The SSL protocol protects the integrity of your correspondence with PROFITEC by providing three major security capabilities:
Privacy: The information sent between your browser and our Web server is encrypted so an unauthorized third party may not read the contents of the message.
Authentication: While SSL is active, you can view the identity and owner of the Web server your browser is connected to by clicking on the closed padlock. This information is contained in a digital certificate issued by a public certificate authority and exchanged with your browser when the SSL connection is established.
Data Integrity: SSL provides a mechanism which verifies that the data has not been tampered with between the time the sender sent it and the receiver received it.
There may be a slight change in the appearance of your browser when you enter the online purchase order forms. This change may vary depending on the type and version of the browser you use. While the SSL connection is active, you will see a note at the bottom of each page indicating a secure connection is active. You will also see a closed padlock at the lower left corner of your browser (depending on which browser you are using).

In no event shall PROFITEC’s liability to you or any third-party for damages, losses and/or any cause of action exceed $100.00.
