What information we collect and how we use it
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
QSTI only collects personal information that you choose to provide voluntarily when using our website. “Personal information” includes information that can identify you, such as name, address, phone number, email address, and company name. QSTI uses third-party payment processors Stripe.com and PayPal, and does not ever have access to your credit card information.
While you can browse our Web site without providing personal information, you will need to input certain personal information if you order one of our products.
QSTI uses cookie and web beacon technology on our website. We use standard Web server log files to help us count visitors and evaluate our Web site’s technical capacity. This information tells us how many people visit the QSTI site, and helps us decide how to arrange pages in the most user-friendly way. It also helps us keep the site browser-friendly and more useful to our visitors. We record information on site traffic, but not on individual visitors to our Web site, so no personal information about you is kept or used.
Email, mailing lists, and other services
When you send us an email, we use your email address to thank you for your comment and/or reply to your question. We store your communication and our reply in case we correspond further. Beyond our initial reply, we will not use your email address to send you any unsolicited message or information, nor will we share it with, or sell it to, anyone else for such use, other than as specified in this policy.
When you request information or services, we use your email address and any other information you give us to provide you with the information or services you have requested until you ask us to stop, or until the information or service is no longer available. We will not use your email address or other information to provide you with any unsolicited message or information (unless the message or information is part of the service you are requesting, e.g., subscribing to our news list).
Our policy regarding selling or renting of personal information
Our policy is simple: We do not sell or rent your personal information to any third parties under any circumstances.
Disclosure of personal information for legal purposes and protection of QSTI and others
We reserve the right to share your personal information with third parties if required to do so by law, or if we believe such action is necessary in order to: (1) conform to the requirements of the law or comply with legal process served upon us; (2) protect or defend our legal rights or property, the QSTI website, or our users; or (3) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of the terms and conditions for using the QSTI site.
How you can decide what communication you’ll receive from us
If you choose to receive them, we may periodically send you email messages describing updates or new products related to QSTI’s mission. You can choose to stop receiving this email at any time. Simply follow the instructions included in your email, or send a reply stating your request.
If you do not explicitly choose to receive informational emails, the only email messages you will receive from QSTI will be a response to an email inquiry that you send us.
How to update, correct, or delete your personal information
You can access and modify certain personal information stored on the QSTI site, such as your name, phone number, email address, and mailing address, by contacting us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via mail at the address set forth below in the “How to contact QSTI regarding your concerns and questions” section.
To modify or delete personal information related to an email program, simply follow the instructions included in your email, or send a reply stating your request, and we will make the requested changes.
We retain information provided to us indefinitely unless otherwise stated. We will keep some personal information you have requested to remove for the following purposes:
- Troubleshoot problems
- Assist with investigations
- Enforce our Web site rules
- Comply with legal requirements
Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personal information will always be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests.
How we protect the security of your personal information
The security of your personal information is very important to us, and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we partner with reputable service providers including Google for Work, Zoho, Weebly, and Shippo for all of our data storage and communication needs.
