We collect two types of information about our website visitors. The first is non-personally identifiable information and the second is personally identifiable information.
a. Non-personally identifiable information
When you visit international-technologies.com certain non-personally identifiable information is collected and stored on our website’s server logs. This information includes your IP address, general geographic location, browser type, and date and time of the visit.

b. Personally identifiable information
Personally identifiable information is voluntarily provided by you and may include your name, email address, company name, company address, telephone number, machine make, model, and serial number and the details of your request to IT.
We use this personal information provided by you for purposes of providing a service or answering a request.

If you fill out a request form on our website or email us directly with a request for information we may need to share that information with our vendors. For example, requests for ACF cornerformer quotes must be approved by the ACF factory for suitability prior to issuing a quotation.
