Gripper Gasket LLC respects your privacy and understands its responsibility to ensure the confidentiality of information you provide.
To help you protect your privacy, this page details how we gather, handle, and disseminate user information via our public web site, www.grippergasket.com, (the “Site”). The Privacy & Security Statement does not address information gathered from sources other than the Site.
When accessing the Site, you are accepting the practices outlined in this Privacy & Security Statement.
Practical guidelines for protecting yourself against internet fraud, guarding your computer, and protecting your personal information have been established by the federal government and the technology industry. We encourage you to visit onguardonline.gov to review these tips.
Use of Personal Information
When you use the Site, personally identifiable information may be gathered and utilized by Gripper Gasket’s employees and agents. Although we largely limit access to your personal information (except as otherwise stated in this Privacy & Security Statement), we do provide your personal information when reasonably necessary, and on a need-to-know basis, to employees and agents to provide products and/or services to you in the course of their jobs. In general, the information we gather consists of that which you knowingly provide to us, such as your name, address, phone number and email address.
If you enter the restricted access sections of the Site, you may be required to furnish additional personally identifiable information to prevent unauthorized access. Gripper Gasket™ may automatically gather or process your internet domain or IP address, in addition to your browser form, the operating system you use, the domain name of your internet service provider and pages visited on the Site, as part of the operation of the Site or during the progression of your activities on or use of the Site.

Surveys and Opinion Polls
To improve the efficiency and usefulness of our services and the Site, we offer a “Customer Satisfaction Survey” here that gives you the opportunity to share your experience. In addition, we may periodically have other on-line surveys and opinion polls. In order to implement these surveys, we may ask you for information such as your name and email address. We will not keep any of your personal information attained while participating in a survey or opinion poll unless you specifically agree to provide that information.
To optimize this Site for you and other future visitors, we may gather certain aggregate and non-personal information when you visit the Site. Aggregate and non-personal information does not relate to a single identifiable visitor. It documents information such as how many users visited the Site and which pages of the Site were accessed most often.
