What Information Is Collected and Why?
At times we may request that you voluntarily supply Voltage with personal information. Such personal information includes any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, home or other physical address, an email address, phone number or other contact information, whether at work or at home. Generally this information is requested when you register on the Site or when you provide information in connection with an online transaction.
Voltage, the service providers for it, and all vendors providing products or services through our Site use your personal information to operate our Site and/or effect your transactions; to create and share reports about your transactions among themselves; and to perform credit fraud screening services for transactions between you and Voltage and/or others.
Voltage also automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookie information and the page you request. We intend to continue improving the content and function of our Site and we monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help Voltage improve the design and layout of our Site and provide content of interest to you.
Is The Information Shared or Disclosed?
Voltage may store and disclose personal information as allowed or required by applicable law, including making disclosures that are necessary or advisable to: (a) protect the rights, safety or property of users of our Site, the public, Voltage or our suppliers; and (b) conform to legal or regulatory requirements. If Voltage should ever file for bankruptcy or merge with another company, we may sell the information you provide to Voltage on this Site to a third party or share your personally information with any company with whom we merge.
Under certain circumstances, Voltage may choose to trade, sell or rent your personal information with trustworthy third parties. Users who would rather not provide any of the user data requested by our registration process do not need to register with Voltage. You can still view much of the content and use some of the services offered by our Site without registering. You have the option of opting not to receive our electronic newsletters when registering. If you have already opted-in, you may remove yourself from mailing lists at any time through the subscription management pages or by following the instructions at the end of the e-mails you receive from Voltage. You may also opt not to provide certain personal information when registering on the Site.
Also, Voltage may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information.

Wherever your personal information may be held by Voltage or on our behalf, Voltage intends to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the personal information that you share with Voltage from unauthorized access or disclosure.
Personal information collected on this Site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Voltage or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using this Site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.
