We do not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable information. This means that your session will be logged, but you remain anonymous to us. IP address information is used only to improve the service of the Great Lakes Tin site, and is then discarded at the end of each session on our site. Great Lakes Tin also collects information through “referrers” and various environmental variables. A “referrer” is information the Web browser passes along to our Web server that references the URL from which you came. “Environmental variables” include, among other things, the domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed our website, type of Web browser and operating system or platform used, the Internet address of the website you left to visit Great Lakes Tin, the names of the pages you visit while at our website, and the Internet address of the website you then visit. We collect all of this information to allow us to detect broad demographic trends, to provide information tailored to your interests and to enhance your experience on our website. Great Lakes Tin may store “referrer” information for a limited period of time prior to deleting this information.
Profiling – To help us improve our website and to ensure that we make every effort to provide you with information and offers that are of interest to you, we may merge your personally-identifiable information with click-stream data and other data we have (including cookies and offline data). We will provide notice of this, as well as an opportunity to opt-out of it, at the time and place of information collection and before data is entered on our system. We may also develop a non-identifiable profile on you based on the pages within our site that you visit.
