Information Collected and Stored Automatically
We automatically collect certain information about your visit to Gumatech Web sites. We limit the data collected, to meet specific business needs and to protect your privacy. We may know what path(s) you took on our Web sites, but we don’t know who you are. We do not use this information to identify you personally without your express consent and an authorized purpose.

We use the general log information to help us make our Web sites more useful to visitors.

Transactions and site usability
We use Session Cookies to improve how you navigate through our Web site and conduct transactions.

Information Collected from Online Forms
Many of our programs and Web sites allow you to use online forms. We will use the information you provide to respond to you or process a request.
In those instances where we secure your personal information in transit to us over the Internet, and upon our receipt, Gumatech uses industry-standard encryption, including Secure Socket Layer (SSL). The connection icon area on your browser will change to “HTTPS” instead of “HTTP” when this security feature is invoked. Your browser may also display a lock symbol on the task bar at the bottom of your screen to indicate this secure transmission is in place. You should refer to the instructions for your particular Internet browser software to determine how to examine the security certificate from our Web site to verify the security of the connection.
For site security purposes and to ensure that Gumatech Web sites remain available to all users, Gumatech employs software programs to monitor network traffic in order to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Except for oversight or authorized law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits other than those uses identified in this policy.
Unauthorized attempts or acts to either
Gumatech takes the security of all personally identifiable information very seriously. We implement various measures to protect the security and confidentiality of personally identifiable information. Such measures include access controls designed to limit access to personally identifiable information to the extent necessary to accomplish our mission. We also employ various security technologies to protect personally identifiable information stored on our systems. We test our security measures periodically to ensure that they remain operational.
