The purpose of our privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") is to inform you about the types of personally identifiable information we gather about you when you visit our websites, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, the information. The phrases "personally identifiable information" or "personal information" mean any information by which you can be identified, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, etc. This Privacy Policy applies only to users accessing our websites from the United States.

This website may use "cookies." A "cookie" is a small file stored by your web browser to help a particular system, like ours, recognize you and the pages you visit on our websites. We built our websites to offer numerous conveniences and useful functions—such as the shopping cart and forms that prefill—and we rely on cookies to make such things possible. The information we store in and access from cookies is not sold to vendors, advertisers, direct mail concerns, e-mail list services, etc. If you disable cookies, certain functions of the website may not work properly or be available to you.

None of the cookies encountered at our websites contain personally identifiable or privileged information. We do employ Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, which provides us with certain aggregate and non-personally identifiable information such as age, gender, and interests; however, as stated above, we do not share cookie data with any third parties, nor do we combine the personally identifiable information you voluntarily submit to us with the non-personally identifiable information we collect through Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. Those who wish to opt out of this third-party demographics and interest reporting can do so via Google's ads settings or the Network Advertising Initiative's consumer opt-out.

The only personally identifiable information that is collected by Restek is that which is expressly volunteered by users.

Our use of such data is strictly internal; it is not sold and it is not shared with companies outside of the Restek's distribution network. We strive to make our websites useful and relevant for our customers through ongoing improvement, which depends on understanding how people use them and how they arrived (i.e., referring pages).
