From time to time, we may use customer information derived from your use of our website for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the new policy to our website to notify you of these changes. If you are interested or concerned about how your information is being used, you should check back at our Web site periodically or contact us directly.


Upon request of an account holding user, we will provide a description of information derived from your use of our website, other than access log information which cannot, in general, be traced to a particular individual user. Contact information is provided with that information for correcting any errors that are found.

If the individual or company responsible for a particular IP address requests access log information for a particular defined time period for that IP - the only information we currently maintain for anonymous accounts, that will be supplied as well. This request must come from the party most closely responsible for the actual address, and will be sent to only them. For user controlled static IP addresses, this would be the individual. For company controlled static IP addresses, this would be the company itself. For dynamic IP addresses, this would be the ISP directly responsible for the addresses.

We provide no means to automatically export the content of forum posts or pages you create in any form.


Our server automatically records the host name or IP address for each connection, the date and time of the request, the page requested and the access mode, the referring page, and the identification information sent by your web browser which may include identification about your browser software and operating system.

The information we collect is used to improve the content of our Web pages, to provide a better browsing experience, and to track down any abuse that should occur. It may additionally be used to try to track down the individual submitting a question if the contact form has missing or invalid information about how to contact you.

All log data is retained.

Cookies are used during the normal operation of the website. They will originate from our server. There are no third-party cookies served by our host.

Certain classes of users may have access to forums or privileged information. User posts to forums are moderated. Posts which do not meet our criteria for inclusion will be discarded. All posts become the property of Automation and Electronics, Inc.

Any privileged password protected areas of the website such as user manuals include proprietary information to Automation and Electronics, Inc. Any documents downloaded from these links have additional confidentiality agreements at their start. If you don't agree to the terms of the confidentiality agreement, you must destroy any downloaded documents. In no event may such a password protected document or portions thereof be transmitted to any other party.


We do not partner with and are not affiliated with any advertising agencies or ad server companies.

If you contact us via our contact pages, an e-mail address or other form of contact must be supplied in order to receive a response. We do not sell or transfer this information to any other organizations or companies. It is used solely to respond to your needs.

Security Text

The content of your posts in forums or the pages you add to the website will be able to be displayed to some or all site users, depending on the type of forum or classification of the page. As such, this information is not encrypted.

No passwords to access protected content or your user account may be divulged to any other individual or group by any means (direct, indirect, active, or passive). If you feel your computer has been compromised, contact us immediately so we can issue you new access credentials or update the passwords for protected content.

Encryption is provided and forced to the highest common setting between the client and server.

Law enforcement

As noted in the sharing section we will provide personal information to you, access log activity to the owner of the IP address, and any of the above information to legal authorities upon being provided with the proper documentation.

For you, this would be an e-mail originating from you. For access log activity, this would be an e-mail from the technical, abuse, or administrative contact of the IP address in question. For other requests, it would require properly executed warrants specifically identifying what was desired, for what user, and the time period in question.
