Inter-State is based, and this web site is hosted, in the United States of America. If you are from the European Union, Canada or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection, use and disclosure that may differ from U.S. law and you are registering an account on the Web Site, visiting the Web Site, purchasing products or services from Inter-State or the Web Site, or otherwise using the Web Site, please note that any personally identifiable information that you provide to Inter-State will be transferred to the United States. Any such personally identifiable information provided will be processed and stored in the United States by Inter-State or a service provider acting on its behalf. By providing your personally identifiable information, you hereby specifically and expressly consent to such transfer and processing and the uses and disclosures set forth herein.
Collection of Your Information
Users browsing the Web Site without registering an account or affirmatively providing personally identifiable information to Inter-State do so anonymously. Otherwise, the information we collect consists of personally identifiable information collected from you when you register to use the Web Site or log into the Web Site as a registered user and interact with the Web Site. Such personally identifiable information may include (i) registration-related information (such as name, home or work addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone and fax numbers, birth date or gender); (ii) transaction-related information (such as credit card or other preferred means of payment, or a history of products purchased through Inter-State.com); (iii) demographic information; (iv) information about your visits to the Web Site, (v) and your responses to the offerings and advertisements presented on the Web Site; information about the features or offerings from Inter-State that you use, and how frequently you use them); (vi) your billing and shipping information; (vii) customer service information about you as a Web Site user or subscriber; and (viii) other information specifically related to your use of a particular Web Site feature or offering. We may collect information that you provide in email or other communications to us. Your information may be supplemented with additional information from other companies or gathered by Inter-State from other sources.
We may also collect information about how you use the Web Site, including certain technical information gathered when you use the Web Site. While all of this information may not be personally identifiable, it may be associated with personally identifiable information that you provide to Inter-State through the Web Site or otherwise. Other information that may not personally identify you may be collected by Inter-State (such as patterns of utilization of the Web Site or any information that is de-identified) and may be utilized and disclosed by Inter-State as allowed by law.
Web Beacons and Ad Networks
We may allow other companies, called ad networks, to serve advertisements to users via the Web Site. Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. Inter-State may "target" some ads to users that fit a certain general profile. To deliver these ads properly, the Web Site may include a file, called a web beacon, from these ad networks within pages served by the Web Site so the networks may provide anonymous, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for advertisers as well as to target ads to you while you visit other web sites. These general targets may also be used by ad networks to display targeted ads on other web sites as a substitute for random, irrelevant ads. In addition, the Web Site may use the technology of ad networks to serve ads only when you visit this Web Site. Ad networks may use non-personally identifiable information, such as your state or zip code, in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of particular interest to you while you visit this Web Site. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network's servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.
How Your Information Is Used
Inter-State may use the personally identifiable information collected through the Web Site (i) for the specific purposes for which the information was provided or collected; (ii) to provide the products and services available on the Web Site and the Web Site itself; (iii) to fulfill your requests for products, programs, and services; (iv) to operate, improve and personalize the features, offerings and content presented to you via the Web Site; (v) to communicate with you and respond to your inquiries; (vi) to conduct research about your use of our products; and (vii) to help offer you other products, programs, or services that may be of interest. Inter-State may use your information in the business planning, marketing, advertising and sales efforts of Inter-State and its trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners.
How Your Information Is Disclosed
Inter-State may disclose personally identifiable information collected from you to its parent, subsidiary and other related companies and Inter-State's trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners who will use the information for the purposes outlined in the "How Your Information Is Used" section above, as necessary to provide the services offered by the Web Site and the Web Site itself, to fulfill any orders for products and services ordered via the Web Site and for the specific purposes for which the information was collected. Your information will not be shared with third parties other than as set forth above unless you have consented to the sharing of your information. Inter-State may use your information to present offers to you on behalf of business partners and advertisers.
Additionally, Inter-State may disclose personally identifiable information at the request of law enforcement or governmental agencies or in response to subpoenas, court orders or other legal process, to establish, protect or exercise Inter-State's legal or other rights or to defend against a legal claim or as otherwise required by law. Inter-State may disclose personally identifiable information in order to protect the rights, property or safety of Inter-State or any other person. Inter-State may disclose personally identifiable information to investigate or prevent a violation by you of any contractual or other relationship with Inter-State or the perpetration of any illegal or harmful activity.
Inter-State may also disclose aggregate, anonymous data based on information collected from users to investors and potential partners. Inter-State may disclose or transfer personally identifiable information collected from users in connection with or in contemplation of a sale of its assets or business or a merger, consolidation or other reorganization of its business.
