This web site is administered by Microprobes. We want you to feel secure when visiting our site and are committed to maintaining your privacy when doing so. The following provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit.

What information do we gather?

Information on Microprobes.com is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly (for example, through our site's technology); and (2) directly (for example, when you provide information on various pages of Microprobes.com). One example of information we collect indirectly is through our Internet access logs. When you access Microprobes.com, your Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our Internet access logs.

We collect information directly from you in a number of ways, some of which we describe in this Privacy Statement. One way is through the use of cookies. Cookies are small files of information which save and retrieve information about your visit to Microprobes.com—for example, how you entered our site, how you navigated through the site, and what information was of interest to you. The cookies we use identify you merely as a number. (If you are uncomfortable regarding cookies use, please keep in mind you can disable cookies on your computer by changing the settings in preferences or options menu in your browser.) We also collect information when you voluntarily submit it to us.

How do we use this information?

We analyze the information to determine what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it, and eventually, to determine how we can tailor Microprobes.com to make it more effective. We may also use data for other purposes, which we would describe to you at the point we collect the information.

Will we share this with outside parties?

We will not sell individual information and will share it only with our affiliates and consultants as needed.

What about sensitive personal data?

We do not seek to collect sensitive personal data through this site. By providing us with unsolicited sensitive personal data, you consent to our using the data subject to applicable law as described in this Privacy Statement. The references to "sensitive personal data" are to the various categories of personal data identified by U.S., European and other data privacy laws as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances the need to obtain explicit consent.

These categories comprise personal identity numbers; personal data about personality and private life; racial or ethnic origin; nationality; political opinions; membership in political parties or movements; religious, philosophical or other similar beliefs; membership in a trade union or profession or trade association; physical or mental health; genetic code; addictions; sexual life; property matters; or criminal record (including information about suspected criminal activities).

What about data security?

We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data on Microprobes.com. You should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended.
