The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include name, address, phone number, e-mail address, user IDs and passwords, billing and transaction information, credit card information, contact preferences, educational and employment background, and job interest data. If you apply for instant credit, we will ask you to provide additional information such as salary, social security number and banking information. This information will be used by our financial services providers in determining whether to extend you credit. To personalize our websites, services or communications and improve our products and services, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, and experiences with our products or services. Providing this additional information is optional. Non-personal information is data about usage and service operation that is not associated with a specific personal identity.

How we use your information
Bitek uses your personal information to provide you with services and to help us better understand your needs and interests. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction or order, to communicate with you, to provide service and support, to update you on services and benefits, to personalize promotional offers and to personalize Bitek websites. Occasionally we may also use your information to contact you for market research regarding Bitek products or services. Personal data given to Bitek may be transferred across state and country borders for the purposes of data consolidation, storage and simplified customer information management. Non-personal data is aggregated for reporting about Bitek website usability, performance and effectiveness and this information is used to improve the customer experience, usability and site content.
Bitek will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. Bitek will not share your personal information with third parties except in responding to your requests for products or services. Your permission will be requested when you submit your information. Bitek shares customer information across Bitek-owned business entities and companies working only on our behalf.
By providing your email address, we may elect to send you a variety of information that complements our products and services. Bitek wide communications may include new product information, special offers, or an invitation to participate in market research.
Bitek strives to keep your personal information accurate. We have implemented technology, management processes and policies to maintain customer data accuracy. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as a password and user ID, before granting access to your data. Certain areas of Bitek websites may limit access to specific individuals through the use of passwords and other personal identifiers. Bitek is committed to protecting the information you provide us. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of the information, Bitek has in place appropriate physical and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. SSL encryption is designed to make the information unreadable by anyone but us. This security measure is working when you see either the symbol of an unbroken key or closed lock (depending on your browser) on the bottom of your browser window. Credit card numbers are used only for processing payment and are not used for other purposes.
If there are updates to the terms of Bitek's Online Privacy Statement, we will post those changes and update the revision date in this document, so you will always know what information we collect online, how we use it, and what choices you have.
