Use of Information
Information collected by Swift is used for four main purposes. First, we collect information to improve the Website by determining which of our areas and features are most popular. Second, we collect information to personalize the experience of the users of the Website. For example, users of some of the features of the Website may be required to create a User Account, UserlD, and password in order to access those features. Third, we collect information to enable our users to participate in features, services, programs, and other activities from time to time. Fourth and finally, we collect information (such as credit card information) to enable our users to purchase our products directly through the Website.
In order to participate in many features and services of the Website, we may ask that you provide us with certain speciﬁc information, such as your full name, company information, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, gender, personal interests, and other information specific to you. You may choose whether or not to provide us with this information, but if you choose not to provide any required information, your experience on the Website may be diminished and some features may not be available or may not work as intended. If you choose not to provide the required credit card information, you may not be able to purchase products through the Website.
Credit Card Information
The online store at the Website is designed to protect the privacy of your credit card information, name, address, e-mail, and any other information you provide us. Swift is committed to data security with respect to information collected on the Website. We offer the industry standard security measures available by utilizing a Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) connection. If at any time you would like to make a purchase, but do not want to provide your credit card information online, you may contact a sales representative over the telephone. Simply call 1.800.313.8772 . It is our practice to contact customers if a problem should arise with your purchase or if we need to send you a normal business communication regarding your purchase.
How Information is Collected
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer’s “Internet Protocol” (or IP) address. When a user requests a web page from the Website, our web servers automatically recognize that user’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing about the user other than the IP address from which the user has accessed the Website. We may use this information to examine our traffic in the aggregate, but we do not collect and evaluate this information for individuals. Our web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of users.
We use reasonable precautions to keep the information that is disclosed to us secure. We reserve the right to transfer information in connection with the sale or other disposition of all or part of Swift’s business or assets. Furthermore, we cannot and will not be responsible for any breach of security by any third party or for any actions of any third party that receives any of the information that is disclosed to us. The Website may also link to a variety of other websites, and the Website may contain advertisements of third parties. We are not and cannot be responsible for the privacy policies of those websites of third parties or how they treat information about their users.
Value Added Beneﬁts
When you create a User Account, UserID, and password on the Website, and when you participate in any of the features, services, or programs offered through the Website, we may request your full name, company information, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, gender, personal interests, and other relevant information speciﬁc to you. If you choose to purchase products directly through the Website, you will also be required to provide us with credit card information, your customer number (if you have one), and related information. This information will allow us to create your User Account and provide you with information that we believe will be important and relevant to you. This information may also be used by us to notify you of features, services, and programs that may be of interest to you.
User Account, Password, and Security
For certain features available through the Website, we may require the use of encryption technologies provided for your protection or your use of a UserID and password after setting up a User Account. We use reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your UserID, password, User Account information, and credit card information by utilizing an SSL connection. Accordingly, your UserID, password, User Account information, and credit card information are encrypted using an SSL connection and are not expected to be read in an intelligible form as they travel to the Website. You, however, are ultimately responsible for protecting your UserID, password, User Account information, and credit card information from disclosure to third parties, and you are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You agree to: (i) immediately notify Swift of any unauthorized use of your UserID, password, or User Account, or any other breach of security and (ii) ensure that you exit from your User Account at the end of each session. While we may provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee or warrant that information transmitted through the Intemet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, interruption, interception or error.

The Website is not intended or designed to attract children under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identiﬁable data from any person that we know to be under the age of 13. If we learn that a user under the age of 13 is publicly posting or sharing personally identiﬁable information on or through the Website, then we will use reasonable measures to block that user from accessing these areas of the Website.

Swift is not and cannot be responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any of those other websites. Other than under agreements with certain reputable organizations and companies, and except for third party service providers whose services you voluntarily elect to utilize, we do not share any of the personal information that you provide to us with any of the websites to which the Website links, although we may share aggregate, non-personally identifiable data with those other websites.
