Privacy Policy

The Equipment Connection is very respectful about the privacy concerns of the visitors to its sites on the Internet. As a general policy, no personal information is automatically collected from visitors to this site. However, certain non-personal information of visitors is recorded by the standard operation of the The Equipment Connection ( Internet servers. This information is primarily used to provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor. Information tracked includes the type of browser being used by the visitor (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system (e.g., Macintosh, Windows) in use by the visitor and the domain name of the visitor’s Internet service provider (e.g., Adelphia, America Online, etc.). By having this information, web pages optimized for a particular visitor’s computer are automatically made available to that visitor.

Other use of this information may include internal review of the number of visitors to this site but only in an aggregate and non-personally-identifiable form. E-mail addresses and other personally identifiable data about visitors to this site are known to The Equipment Connection only when voluntarily submitted by the user. The Equipment Connection affiliated web sites that are linked to this site and that engage in any additional information practices will explain those practices at that site.

Use of IP Addresses

An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers — the big computers that “serve up” Web pages — automatically identify your computer by its IP address.

The Equipment Connection collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, report aggregate information, and to audit the use of our site. When guests request pages from The Equipment Connection sites, our servers log the Guests’ IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Acceptable Use Policy or Terms of Service or to protect our service, site, customers, or others.

Use of Cookies

What are cookies? Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you’re at our site. We never save passwords or credit card information in cookies. The use of cookies is an industry standard — you’ll find them at most major Web sites.

By showing how and when guests use a site, cookies can help us to see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users needs.

The Equipment Connection has two primary uses for these cookies. First, we use cookies to specify your unique preferences. Secondly, we use cookies to track user trends and patterns. This helps us better understand and improve areas of the respective site that our users find valuable. While both of these activities depend on the use of a cookie, visitors to any The Equipment Connection site always have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to prompt you when a cookie is being sent. However, note that some parts of the site may not function properly or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies.

Links to Other Sites

Users should be aware that when they are on any The Equipment Connection site, they could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from our pages that take you outside our service. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information.

Please keep in mind that whenever you give out your personal information online — for example, via message boards or chat — that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While The Equipment Connection strives to protect their users’ personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose freely online, and you do so at your own risk.

The Equipment Connection policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond The Equipment Connection’s control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.


  The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. The The Equipment Connection exercises great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, The Equipment Connection can’t ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. We have systems in place to securely record and store your personal information, and once we receive your transmission, we ensure its security on our systems.

A Special Note To Parents

Children must get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, E-mail addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to The Equipment Connection or to anyone else. The Equipment Connection will not knowingly allow anyone under the age of 13 to register with any of our corporate sites, to order The Equipment Connection services or products online, or to access any features that require registration. The Equipment Connection believes that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address, and other personal information without parental permission. For additional information about parental control tools, please consult the “Consumer Assistance” page of the Direct Marketing Association home page (
