Tela Communications respects the privacy concerns of the users of its Internet Sites ("Sites"), and has created this privacy statement to explain what information we gather from your visit to our Sites, and how such information may be used.

Use of Information
As a general policy no personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, or email address, is automatically collected from your visit to our Sites. However, certain non-personal information is recorded by the standard operation of our servers. Information such as the type of browser being used, its operating system, and your IP address is gathered in order to enhance your online experience.
Our Sites' various registration forms and surveys may request that you give us contact information (such as your name, mailing and/or email address) demographic information (such as your age and gender) and profile data (such as your preferences). Personally identifiable information is never sold or leased to any third parties. With your permission, we may use your contact information to send you information about our services. You may always opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the Choice/Opt-out section below.
Our Sites use various order forms for you to request information, products, and services. We collect contact information (such as your name, mailing and/or email address), and when appropriate, financial information (your credit card number) to process your request or purchase. Contact information from an order form is used to fulfill orders, and to provide information about our company to you if requested. The contact information is also used to get in touch with you when necessary regarding your order. Financial information that is collected is used to process your request for products and services, and will not be shared with third parties who are not involved with the transaction. When credit card information is transmitted we use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
We may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference (either intentionally or unintentionally) to other web site users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.To the extent that any of our Sites accessible through the URL www.telacommunications.com have additional or different practices or policies, these practices will be explained at that Site.
security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Although children under 13 years of age may be allowed to participate in some contests and promotions, if such an entrant wins, notification and prizes are sent to the parent or guardian identified in the initial registration process. Publication of names, ages, or images for contest winners under 13 require parental or guardian consent.
Use of IP Addresses
An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet provider whenever you're surfing the Web. When you request pages from our sites, our servers log your IP address. We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of our Site. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that your session will be logged, but you are anonymous to us. We may use your IP addresses in cooperation with your Internet provider to identify you if we feel it is necessary to protect our service, Sites, customers, or others.
Links to Other Sites
Tela Communications is not responsible for the content or practices of third party web sites that may be linked to our Sites. Our Sites may also be linked to web sites operated by other companies. Visitors to these web sites should refer to each web site's respective privacy policies and practices.
Bulletin Boards and Chat Areas
Guests are solely responsible for the content of messages they post on public forums, such as chat rooms and bulletin boards. Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, email address, phone number) on the bulletin boards or in the chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people.
Our Sites may provide you the opportunity to opt-in to receive communications from us at the point where we request information about you. You always have the option of removing your name from any email list to not receive future communications. In order to ensure immediate removal from any list, it is best to follow the specific instructions outlined within the communications you receive from us. However, if you are unable to complete the process indicated in the communications, then just send us an email with a copy of the undesired email along with your request.
