How We Gather Information from Users
PowerDistributionOnline.com collects certain information via forms, opt-ins and cookies on our website. How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as newsletters, or when you make a purchase.
You may provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of our site. Like most websites, PowerDistributionOnline.com also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors.
For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site.
As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies. If you do so, you may be unable to access certain portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and we may not be able to customize the site's features according to your preferences.

We respect your privacy.

- Personal information may be provided to vendors or manufacturers, as may be necessary, to fulfill an order.
- Information may be used by our staff and our website to complete the purpose for which the information was provided, whether the activity is a one-time or recurring event.

- PowerDistributionOnline.com strives to offer its visitors the many advantages of Internet technology and to provide an interactive and personalized experience. Consequently, PowerDistributionOnline.com, entities for whom it is acting as an agent, and/or entities acting as its agent may be provided information you supplied in order to perform a service or action you requested.

- Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in some ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive).
- Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. This information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.
In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
We respect the request of any individual asking to have his or her e-mail address removed from our database. Accordingly, any marketing-related e-mail sent to you by PowerDistributionOnline.com will provide an automated unsubscribe option.
