INFORMATION AERIS COLLECTS FROM YOU
Active Information Collection
Like many other web sites, we actively collect information from our visitors both by asking specific questions on the Sites and by permitting you to communicate directly with Aeris via e-mail. Some of the information that you submit during the registration process or while making a purchase may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, business name, address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc.).
When you visit the Sites, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. If you choose to register with the Sites, during the registration process you will be asked for both personal and demographic information, most of which is required in order to complete the registration. We will inform you which information is optional. If you opt not to register with the Sites, you still can visit the Sites but you may not be able to access all capabilities of the Sites.
Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through this Site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection. Like most web site operators, we track IP addresses, and use both session and persistent cookies. Our system also automatically gathers information about the areas you visit on this Site and collects operational information about the technology you use, such as your browser, type of computer, operating systems, and Internet service provider.
In addition, when you view this Site, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a cookie or similar file and will help us in many ways. For example, cookies allow us to tailor a web site or advertisement to better match your interests and preferences. Most internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. Aeris does not collect personally identifiable information automatically, but we may tie information collected automatically to your previously submitted personally identifiable information.
We passively collect information to understand what areas of the Sites are most popular, which areas may require improvement and what technologies are being used by our visitors. This information helps us to update and improve the Sites. We also use this information for security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches and to provide you with a safe online environment.

Aeris, however, will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.
