We directly collect Personal Information from you when you submit an on-line form through our Web site or send an e-mail to us requesting information or assistance, such as through the submission of a contact form, signing up for a mailing list, or in the recruitment process. Due to the open nature of the Internet, Dudek requests that no unsolicited proprietary or other confidential information be sent to it through the Web site. Dudek does not accept unauthorized idea submissions outside of established business relationships. Any such information supplied through the Web site will be deemed to be nonconfidential.

Persons who supply their e-mail addresses or any other personal contact information on-line may receive direct mail, e-mail, or telephone contact from us for assistance.

For example, we do not sell your e-mail address or your name and personal demographic information to mass marketers or advertisers. Personal Information is used only by Dudek.

Information That is Collected Automatically

Information is collected indirectly through the technology common to all Web sites. When you enter a URL or a search query, or as you navigate through the site, your browser requests a page from our server. At that time, the server automatically logs certain non-identifiable information, such as time, date, browser type, and IP address. Dudek also uses standard “cookies” to enhance your experience on the Web site. Cookies are small files that your Web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes and to speed up performance, for instance, by remembering you and your preferences. You may choose to turn off cookies in your Web browser’s options.

Dudek studies this data in our Internet access logs at an aggregate level to help us tailor content toward your interests and needs. For instance, to determine the usefulness of a particular Web site feature, we may analyze collective traffic to a portion of our site. This collective data contains no personally identifiable information and is used to help us operate and enhance our site and services.
