and online security
In general, you can visit the EDSTech web site
without providing personal identifiable information unless you
voluntarily sign up as a paid member to use our online tool
FlowStation. The Engineering Design System Technology’s ("EDSTech")
privacy and online security policy applies to our current or
former customers who register and pay for our online service
1. What Information Do We Gather and
Personally identifiable information is
information that can be used to identify you as a paid member.
Examples of this type information include those when you sign up
as a member for the online tools.
In addition, we collect and store statistics and
information about the online activities of our members for billing
and account balance update purposes. For example, we track each
paid member’s start and end times for use of any chosen title.
Your computer reaches us via a particular IP, (Internet
Protocol), address. This can tell us things like what part
of the world you're connecting from or what service provider you
2. How Do We Use Your Personal Identifiable
We use your email address to identify you as
our member to login, to provide you with newsletters to which you
subscribe, and to send you a new password if you request one. We
may also use your email address, regular mail or telephone to tell
you about our products or services that we feel may be of interest
We do not sell your personal information to anyone.
When you visit our site we may store some
information on your computer. This information will be used in
the form of a “cookie”. Cookies are small pieces of information
stored on your hard drive, not on our web site. Cookie may allow
our site to remember you when you return so that you do not have
to enter your login data each time. The information gathered by
cookies may include your login email address, your password, IP
address, the type of browser and operating system you are using,
the domain name of your internet service provider and site
4. We Provide You with Browser and Internet
you enter a page to (1) Add Time via a credit card transaction
or to (2) View My Account Profile or to (3) View Account
Balance, we encrypt it using Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
technology. SSL protects information as it crosses the Internet.
Your Microsoft Internet Explorer browsers will activate SSL
automatically whenever you go to these pages.
You can tell if you are in these secured pages by
looking at the symbol on the bottom of your browser screen. If you
are using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, you will see either a
lock or a key. When the symbol appears unbroken or the padlock is
in the locked position, your session connection is taking place
via a secure server.
5. You Safeguard Your Password.
Your password is set by
you when you sign up. Your password can be changed by you at any
time (in View My Account Profile). You replacement password can
be randomly generated by our server and sent directly and only to
your login email address if you don’t remember our password
and request a new password. In all cases, we do not know your
Your password is
your private entry key into your account. You should never share
it with anyone and you should change it periodically.
6. How Can I Access My Personal Identifiable
give you access to the information about your account that you
provided when you first signed up as a member for the limited
purpose of viewing and updating that information. You can
do so after you login and go to View My Account Profile.
7. How Do I Prevent My Account From Being Accessed
without My Authorization?
It is important for you to protect your email
address and your password. It is also important for
you to protect against unauthorized access to your already logged
in section and to continue to use that session as you. In this
case the charge against your escrow will continue. Be sure to
log off when finished your intended session. This prevents
someone else from accessing your account through your computer if
you leave your computer and your session hasn’t “timed out” or
automatically shut down.
8. Internet Transaction Using Your Credit
For paid customers of the online tool FlowStation
to set up the escrow at EDSTech by charging to your credit card,
we use PayPal as the transaction agent. Customers are requested or directed to the PayPal secure site using their PayPal account for payment.
We do not handle your credit card information.
9. What Other Choice Do I Have?
You can always choose not to provide information,
even though it might be needed to make a online purchase or credit
card transaction. You can send us a check or company’s purchase
order instead of using a credit card for an online transaction.
