Information This Site Gathers
The Matco Tools website logs IP addresses and browser types, but we do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. Therefore, you can browse this site without entering any personal information, and you can remain anonymous during your visit. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information, and to help identify you.
This site also includes a variety of registration and order forms that may ask for particular information about our visitors such as name, email address and demographic/product usage information. Information gathered through these means is used to learn more about our visitors, provide them with requested information, and to also mail them future informational/promotional materials from Matco Tools and its sales/service channel partners. You can request to not have informational/promotional materials sent to you, as noted in the "choice/opt out" section at the end of this notice.
Please also note that certain countries may not allow information (such as e-mail) to be transmitted outside of that country or region. If you have any concerns about this practice, we suggest you do not use the forms or contact mechanisms included in this web site, and use an alternative form of contacting us.

Details about the different means in which we gather information from visitors are detailed below:
This site's registration forms require users to give us contact information (like their name, email address, and some demographic data). We use this information to learn more about our visitors, and to keep visitors up to date on new products, services and developments. In some instances, Matco Tools may use the customer's contact information to contact the visitor directly.
This site uses order forms for customers to request information, materials, products, and services. We collect visitor's contact information (like their email address), and financial information (like their account or credit card numbers). Contact information from the order form is used to send orders and also to learn more about our customers. The customer's contact information may also be used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for products and services.
Credit Card Information
All credit card transactions will be entered via the World Wide Web. Calls to our Customer Support Representatives to provide your credit card number will input it via a Web-based system.
Our online surveys may ask visitors for contact information (such as their email address), or other demographic or product usage data. We use data collected from these surveys to learn more about our customers, their likes and dislikes, and how we can improve our services and product offerings. Contact information collected is used to contact the visitor when necessary. We may also use the customer's contact information received in surveys to contact the visitor directly, if necessary.
From time to time, this site features contests that ask visitors for contact information (like their email address). The customer's contact information is used to contact the visitor to notify if they have won a prize in the contest.
