Collection of Personal Information
In order to give you superior customer service, Industrial News collects your personal information in several ways. For example, Industrial News may ask you to provide certain information such as your first and last name, mailing address (including postal code), e-mail address, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal information. When ordering products or services on the Site, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
In order to reduce the number of errors in our database, authenticate our users and prevent abuse of our system we may occasionally supplement the personal information you submit to us with information from third party sources. For example, we may supplement your registration information with address information provided by the Postal Service to qualify your information and prevent errors in our database.

We believe it is important to protect your private information and we take all possible measures to respect the confidentiality of the information you provided to us.
