Services and Links of our Website

Our web site does not enable our visitors to communicate with other visitors or to post information to be accessed by others. Our web site includes links to other professional engineering sites. Please note that these third party web service providers may collect personal data about our visitors who connect to their links. These web sites are owned and operated independently of Dataforth and have their own separate privacy and data collection practices. Any information that you provide to these web sites will be governed under the terms of their respective privacy policies, if any. Dataforth has no responsibility or liability whatsoever for the independent actions or policies of these third party web sites and is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these web sites.

Collection of Information; Purpose and Use

Dataforth collects personally-identifying information when you voluntarily fill out the form on this Site to request technical assistance, literature, or application notes. We retain that information in our database and use it to fulfill your request as well as using it for technical administration of the Site, research and development, customer administration, and marketing. We do not require this information to obtain access to any part of our public Site.

Dataforth does not use cookies to store personal data nor does Dataforth link non-personal information stored in cookies with personal data about specific individual. Dataforth collects only the personal data that you may volunteer while using our services. We do not seek or collect information about our visitors from other sources, such as public records or public agencies or private organizations. We do not seek or collect or use personal data for any purpose other than that indicated in the table below. By sending Dataforth an electronic mail message (for example, an e-mail message containing a signal conditioner request), you may be sending us personally-identifying information. In these cases, we may retain the information as long as necessary to respond to your request or otherwise resolve the subject matter of your e-mail. Before collecting personally-identifying information for new purposes, we will prominently disclose:

  • why we are requesting the information;
  • how it will be used;
  • how long it may be retained; and
  • under what conditions, and with whom, it may be shared.
If we wish to use your personal data for new purposes, we offer you the means to consent to those new purposes by indicating in a box at the point on the Site where personal data is collected. To access the table of personal data collected and purposes for which they are used, please click here.

Children's Privacy

Dataforth's marketing efforts are directed principally to industrial test and measurement professionals and therefore this Site is intended for use by adults only. No information should be submitted to or posted on this Site by visitors under the age of 13. Dataforth does not knowingly or intentionally collect personal data from children. We take specific steps to protect the privacy of children by making reasonable efforts to ensure that a parent has authorized the collection of the child's personal data. Additionally, to ensure that children's privacy is respected on our Site, we do not provide information about our personal data practices in relation to children on our home page or in those areas on our Site where we collect personal data.

Disclosure and Visitor Choice

Dataforth does not disclose your personal data to any affiliated company(ies) or other organizations.

Confidentiality / Security

Dataforth provides a secure transmission method to send identifiers (including but not limited to credit card details, web site password and so forth). Our Site provides forms allowing visitors to submit search engine queries, questionnaires, feedback, or other information. Some of these forms may request personally-identifying information (e.g., name, address, e-mail address) for specific purposes, such as when the submitter is requesting a personal response, registering for application notes, or subscribing to a mailing list.

We may store non-personally-identifying information we collect (such as search engine queries and anonymous survey responses) indefinitely to help us better understand and meet the needs of our visitors. This information is neither made available to any third parties nor combined with any other information at our disposal. Dataforth has implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from:
  • unauthorized access
  • improper use or disclosure
  • unauthorized modification
  • unlawful destruction or accidental loss
All Dataforth employees and data processors, who have access to and are associated with the processing of personal data, are obliged to respect the confidentiality of our visitors' personal data. We ensure that your personal data will not be disclosed to governmental institutions and authorities unless required by court order, by law, or by federal, state or municipal regulation.
