USPTGear only acquires information that is specifically provided by the end user through our interactive forms, with the addition of credit card approval information that is supplied to us through our association with PayPal, who handles the on-line credit card authorization processing for this site. The information we retain from the credit card authorization procedure consists of either an error return code instructing us why a credit card authorization was declined, or the approval code for a processed order. For certain transactions, USPTGear retains additional information offered by PayPal, which consists of various scores that help determine whether a credit card transaction may or may not be fraudulent.
Our sites utilize 'cookies' on a temporary basis, which enables USPTGear's computer servers to recognize a userís computer's ongoing requests to our system. These cookies are not stored by us after a session with our system ends, even though these cookies may be retained on a userís computer. For our system, cookies are necessary so that we can, for example, keep shopping cart information on a particular user as he or she navigates from page to page on our site adding or deleting items. At present, cookies are not employed to track public navigation of our site.
USPTGear does not sell the contact information that we receive from customers to any third parties. We utilize this information in the precise manner that we utilize the same information that is provided to us by retail purchasers of our goods through non-internet contact, i.e. when a purchase order is issued to us.
