Among other things, we want to help you quickly find information on Abekas, Incorporated Web sites and alert you to information on our products, services and programs.

This Web site may contain links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Abekas. Links to other sites will open in a new browser window; or a new tab in your browser. Please be aware that Abekas is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other Web sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally-identifiable information. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this Web site.

Like most standard Web site servers, we use log files to automatically log information such as internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. We log this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. For areas of our site that require registration, we log the user’s e-mail address and specific information concerning the user’s activity on the site. This information may be tied to the user’s other personal information and, if so, it is used to support the user’s professional relationship with Abekas and our products.
Cookies are used to enhance your experience on our sites by allowing us to tailor our content based on your interests. A cookie can contain information, such as a user ID or preferences, which the site uses to personalize content and track the pages you’ve visited. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering or logging on to our Web site.
We also collect information through the use of web beacons. Web beacons are tiny invisible graphics placed on certain pages of Abekas’s web. When a visitor accesses one of these pages, a notice of that visit is generated. Web beacons can be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing that page. Processing this information helps us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective.
In addition, we may use web beacons in some of our HTML-based e-mails to let us know what percentage of e-mails are opened by the recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
Abekas will NOT disclose your personal information to outside organizations unless they are directly affiliated with Abekas. Distributors, rental partners, affiliates, contractors, or other business partners of Abekas who have access to your personal information use the information in connection with your customer relationship with Abekas and our products. Contractors use the information to fulfill Abekas’s requirements for such things as processing credit card purchases, shipping goods to customers, and providing information to potential customers.
