Information Collection and Use
Our Site uses forms in which you give us contact information (including your name, address, telephone number, and email address) so you can place orders,
request information and support, and make product suggestions. For certain services, we may also request a credit card number, government identification number,
or other financial information. We will then create an account number for you.
We receive and store any information you enter on our Site or give us in any other way, including through email, telephone, or other communications with our customer service
department. If you contact us for support, we will keep an internal record of what support was given.
We use your information to contact you regarding functionality changes to our products, our Site, new Starfield Technologies services, and special offers we think you'll find valuable.
If you would rather not receive this information, please see the "Updating Your Information" section below on how to change your preferences.
We may also use your information to present a co-branded offer with our partners or affiliates. If we collect information from you in connection with a co-branded offer,
it will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the information and whose privacy statement applies.
We use information gathered about you from our Site statistics (for example, your IP address) to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Site.
We also gather broad demographic information from this data to help us improve our Site and make your browsing and purchasing experience more enjoyable.
This is not linked to any personally identifiable information, except as necessary to prevent fraud or abuse on our system.
The cookies are linked to your customer number, which is associated with the information in your account.
This Site also contains links to other websites. Unfortunately, Starfield Technologies is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites.
This Site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the information under our control.

Contact Us page, to allow you to contact us directly. We strive to promptly reply to your messages.
Third Party Service Providers
We may at times provide information about you to third parties to provide various services on our behalf, such as processing credit card payments, serving advertisements,
conducting contests or surveys, performing analyses of our products or customer demographics, shipping of goods or services, and customer relationship management.
We will only share information about you that is necessary for the third party to provide the requested service. These companies are prohibited from retaining, sharing,
storing or using your personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
In the event that we use third party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf, these companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gift or
web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous.

Supplementation of Information
In order to provide certain services to you, we may on occasion supplement the personal information you submit to us with information from third party sources
(e.g., information from our strategic partners, service providers, or the United States Postal Service). We do this to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor
our products and services to you, and to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
From time-to-time, we may provide you with the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys. If you choose to participate, we may request certain personally identifiable
information from you. Participation in these contests or surveys is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose the requested information.
The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code and age level - note that you must be 18 or
above to enter). We use this information to notify contest winners and award prizes, to monitor site traffic, and to personalize our Site.
We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests. When we do, that company will be prohibited from using our users' personally identifiable
information for any other purpose. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a contest or survey with other third parties unless we give
you prior notice and choice.
Starfield Technologies may display targeted offers to our customers based on the products currently owned by the customer. These offers will display as varying product banners.
There is no personal or geolocation information collected within these product banners to build a profile about your activities or that is shared with third party advertising companies.
What Happens to my Personal Information if I Terminate my Starfield Technologies Account?
When your Starfield Technologies account is cancelled (either voluntarily or involuntarily) all of your personally identifiable information is placed in "deactivated"
status on our relevant Starfield Technologies databases. However, deactivation of your account does not mean your personally identifiable information has been deleted
from our database entirely. We will retain and use your personally identifiable information as necessary in order to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes,
or enforce our agreements.
