Lab-Plus International has long recognized that individuals with whom we conduct business value their privacy. However, in order to conduct global business in this increasingly electronic economy, the collection of personal information is often necessary and desirable. It is our goal to balance the benefits of e-commerce with the right of individuals to prevent the misuse of their personal information. This policy applies to all U.S.-based sites under the Lab-Plus International domain.
The Information We Collect
Personally Identifiable Information – When visiting Lab-Plus International’s web site and purchasing equipment, you may choose to supply Lab-Plus International with information that identifies you personally. This information includes name, contact information, shipping information, billing information, credit card or payment information, and other information.
Aggregate Information – We collect non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our Web site. We do not share aggregate information with 3rd parties or advertisers.
The Way We Use Information
We use the information you provide about yourself to complete the transaction for which the information is intended. Such transactions may include: administering a service, such as email, search, advertising sales; completing an order; shipping a product; replying to support requests; or contacting you if you have granted us permission to do so. We do not share this information with outside parties without your permission except to the extent that is necessary to administer the services we offer our Clients or to comply in responding to subpoenas, court orders or other legal proceedings.
From time to time, we also use the information you provide about yourself or others to inform you of additions or improvements to the Lab-Plus International product offering as well as conduct member surveys in order to improve our services.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways or for reasons unrelated to the ones described above without also providing an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Collecting Information on All Site Visitors
Lab-Plus International gathers certain generic information with respect to visitors’ use of the site. Information such as the number of visitors, the frequency with which they visit and the areas on the site that they favor, very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We only use this type of data in aggregate-that is, we look at the data on a collective basis, in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. This collective data helps us determine the extent to which our customers use certain parts of the site, which, in turn, enables us to make the site as appealing as we can for as many of you as possible, and provide you with the best possible Web experience. These statistical ratings do not contain any personally identifiable information about you or any of our users.
In some circumstances, Lab-Plus International may request personal and professional information from you, such as your name, title, email address, company name, or telephone number. Your response to these inquiries is strictly voluntary. Lab-Plus International uses this information to customize your experience on our web site. In addition, we may use this information for other business purposes, such as to alerting you to products and services that can assist you in your business, promoting site registration, and assisting in order processing.
In general, you can visit our site without divulging any personal information. However, there are areas of this site that require this information to complete their customization functions, and may not be available to those choosing not to reveal the information requested.
Lab-Plus International also collects domain information as part of its analysis of the use of this site. This data enables us to become more familiar with customers who visit our site, how often they visit and what parts of the site they visit most often. Lab-Plus International uses this information to improve its web-based offerings. This information is collected automatically and requires no action on your part.
