Datalink collects information from our users at several different points on our web site. Please note: In areas of the world (outside of the U.S.) where Datalink does not have a presence, we may pass information on to our manufacturing partners.

Registration 

You can access and browse our web site without disclosing your personal data. In order to use personalization and our extranet, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration, a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact the user about Web services in which they've expressed an interest. 

Cookies 

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. By using cookies on our site, users are not required to log in a username and password more than once, thereby, saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback is that the user will have limited access to some areas of our site.

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movements, and gather broad demographic information for our use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

We are very concerned about your privacy. Datalink will never share, sell, or in any other way transfer your personal information to a third party. Please note: In areas of the world (outside of the U.S.) where Datalink does not have a presence, we may pass information on to our manufacturing partners.

Links 

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Datalink is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statement of each web site that collects personally identifiable information. Our privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the Datalink web site. 

Job Referral Tool    

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend or colleague about a career opportunity, we ask them for the friend's name and email address. We will automatically send the friend a one-time email alerting them to the position. We store this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.

This web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the web site, all information is protected both online and offline. If you have any questions about the security at our web site, you can send an email to clientservices@datalink.com.

From time to time, we may send registered users an email update alerting them to enhanced features and functions or new white papers/webcasts. Click here if you have received a mailing and would like to opt out.

Correcting and Updating Personal Information 

If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at the member information page. Datalink reserves the right to cancel a user's registration. 

Notification of Changes 

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this page so that our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
