Our Privacy Commitment
What Information Does Pointer Avionics Collect and How is it Used?
At Pointer Avionics, we collect two types of information: personal information and non-personal information. With your consent we may use your personal information for a number of different purposes, for example to:
Your Implied Consent
In some cases, your consent is implied if we ask you to provide personal information with a stated purpose. For example, we can only deliver the product you have purchased if you provide us with your address and phone number.
Your Express Consent
In other cases, we will ask you to give your express consent to use your personal information to advise you of products or services that may be of interest. You always have the opportunity to "opt out" of having your information used for this purpose. For example, when you subscribe to the Pointer Avionics newsletter, we will also ask for your express consent to send you promotional information.
Withdrawing Your Consent
If you have "opted in" or subscribed to one of our newsletters or mailing lists, we will always provide you the opportunity to "opt out" or un-subscribe. For example, each e-mail we send you will tell you how to decline further e-mail.
Information Pointer Avionics Collects from You
Listed here are some examples of the ways that we collect information about you and how we use it.
Our Web Sites
While using our web site, you may be asked to voluntarily provide certain personal information (such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone number, or credit card information). We use this information to complete your transaction and to apply for access to certain special features and functions of the web site. If you choose not to provide requested personal information, you will not be able to use certain features of the web site and you will not be able to engage in transactions through the web site.
With any of the services on our Web Sites, we may also use your personal information to contact and correspond with you and to respond to your inquiries. With your consent, we may send to you, from time to time, email or other communications regarding goods or services we believe will interest you.
All references to our Web Site in this policy means skyhunter406.com.
Participate in a Contest, Promotion, or Survey
From time to time, we may run contests, promotions, or surveys. If you participate, you may be asked for contact information as well as additional optional survey information (for example, product preferences). Information from contest entries will be used to contact you if you win. We may also summarize survey information in a manner that no longer identifies the contest entrants for analysis, but will not share personal information from entries. All contests are subject to rules that will be available with each particular contest.
Information Pointer Avionics Collects Automatically
Like many other web sites, we automatically collect certain non-personal information regarding Web site users that does not identify you. Examples include the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you access the web site, the Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to the Web Site, the operating system you are using, the sections of the web site you visit, the web site pages read and images viewed, and the content you download from the web site. This non-personal information is used for Web Site and system administration purposes and to improve the Web Site.
The web site uses "cookies", a technology that installs a small amount of information on a Web Site user's computer to permit the Web Site to recognize future visits using that computer. Cookies enhance the convenience and use of the web site. For example, the information provided through cookies is used to recognize you as a previous user of the web site (so you do not have to enter your billing information every time), to offer personalized web page content and information for your use, to track your activity at the web site, to respond to your needs, and to otherwise facilitate your web site experience. You may choose to decline cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your use of the web site and your ability to access certain features of the Web Site or engage in transactions through the web site.
We may use non-personal information to compile tracking information reports regarding web site user demographics, web site traffic patterns, and web site purchases, and then provide those reports to advertisers and others. None of the tracking information in the reports can be connected to the identities or other personal information of individual users. We may also link tracking information with personal information voluntarily provided by web site users. Once such a link is made, all of the linked information is treated as personal information and will be used and disclosed only in accordance with this policy.
Links to Other Web Sites
Our web site may contain links to other web sites or Internet resources. When you click on one of those links you are contacting another web site or Internet resource. Pointer Avionics has no responsibility or liability for or control over those other web sites or Internet resources or their collection, use and disclosure of your personal information.
We encourage you to read the privacy policies of those other sites to learn how they collect and use information about you.
Disclosure to Service Providers
Pointer Avionics may share your personal information with certain service providers in order to provide products and services to you, to verify and validate information, and to address customer service matters.. Examples of service providers include credit card issuers, product service depots, warranty providers, and delivery services. To reduce the risk of fraud or misuse of personal information, Pointer Avionics may also verify your personal information, including but not limited to your address and credit card information, with third party service providers.
We will use reasonable efforts to ensure that your personal information is used in a manner that is consistent with this policy. If you do not wish us to provide your personal information to those service providers, we may be unable to process your transaction.
Pointer Avionics may disclose your information as permitted or required to by law; for example:
