Use of Computer Tracking Technologies.
- No Tracking of Personal Information. Vijay's Site is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information not entered by visitors. Through the Site access logs Vijay does collect clickstream data and HTTP protocol elements, which generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff for research and development, user analysis and business decision making, all of which provides better services to the public. The statistics garnered, which contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information, may also be provided to third parties.

Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If customer does not want cookie information to be associated with customer's visits to these pages, customer can set its browser to turn off cookies; however, Web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other non-identifiable cookie information and are disregarded.
- Collection of Non-Identifiable Information. Vijay may collect non-identifiable information from user visits to the Site in order to provide better customer service. Examples of such collecting include: traffic analysis, such as tracking of the domains from which users visit, or tracking numbers of visitors; measuring visitor activity on Site; Site and system administration; user analysis; and business decision making. Such information is sometimes known as "clickstream data." Vijay or its vendors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics.
- Collection of Personal Information. Vijay collects personal identifying information from customer during a transaction. Vijay may extract some personally identifying information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information, such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level (not at an individual level) to help Vijay understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level.
- Commitment to Online Security. Vijay intends to protect customer personal information and to maintain its quality. To achieve information security and quality, Vijay implements appropriate measures and processes, such as using encryption when transmitting certain sensitive information.
