This may include geolocation data and Internet or other electronic network activity such as device identifiers and advertising identifiers. We use this information to optimize our Site for our users’ use. If, however, you choose to browse the Internet anonymously, we will not collect technical or routing information about your computer or device.

It will contain no other personal information. Third party cookies may also be used.

Provide Services, Participate in GPOs
When you contact us for products or service, we collect information in order to provide you with services you request, or otherwise communicate with you in relation to those products, where appropriate. We may also share information with Group Purchasing Organizations (“GPO”), which allow companies such as Chommerce the ability to aggregate purchase volume with other entities to obtain better prices.
Subject to applicable law, you may have the right to request and obtain information about, or copies of, your personal information that we process, where we obtained your information, the business or commercial purpose for collecting your information, and the third parties with whom your information is shared. Your right may also include the ability to tell us not to sell your information. Lastly, you may ask us to delete personal information that we have collected from you, depending on the situation and applicable laws. To enquire about these rights please contact us at email@example.com.
We do not sell your personal information. We may need to disclose your personal information occasionally. Most of our disclosures are necessary to complete a transaction or provide the information or service you have requested, such as to vendors or service providers. Any third-party to whom we disclose personal information for these purposes are authorized to use the personal information about you only as necessary to provide these services to us. In addition to this, we may disclose your information if needed to comply with a court order, law, legal proceeding, or request from the government. We also reserve the right to disclose your information if we have the reasonable belief that such disclosure is fundamental to the safety of individuals associated with Chommerce or others unaffiliated with the company, or to report or investigate fraud or a crime.
Chommerce considers the protection of personal information a high priority. To protect the confidentiality of your personal information, we use reasonable and appropriate physical, technical and administrative industry safeguards to protect information from unauthorized access, use, loss, misuse or unauthorized alteration.
