If you do not register, general technical user data, such as your device's Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system and browser type, and the date and time of your visit, may be automatically collected through the use of “cookies” (small files that are stored on your computer by a website to give you a unique identification) or other technologies. Cookies also keep track of the Services you have used, as well as record your preferences and behaviors while on our Sites.

Offline: We collect information from you offline, such as when you attend one of our events, during phone calls with sales representatives, or when you contact a Western Computer representative.
We use your information to operate, evaluate and improve our business, including by (a) developing new products and services and pursuing other business opportunities, (b) enhancing and improving our Services and the Sites, (c) managing our communications, (d) analyzing our Services, (e) identifying usage and behavioral trends on our Sites (such as lead scoring), and (f) determining the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns.

We may also contact you based on the behavioral information we collected as part of our lead scoring practices.
We may also use information derived from cookies and other tracking technologies to determine your interests in particular advertisements and other communications. Please review our Cookies Policy for more information.
We may also use your information as we believe to be necessary or appropriate: (1) under applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence, (2) to comply with legal process, (3) to respond to requests from public and government authorities including public and government authorities outside your country of residence, (4) to enforce our terms and conditions, (5) to protect our operations or those of any of our affiliates, (6) to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property, and/or that of our affiliates, you or others, or (7) to allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.

INFORMATION TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, and our Sites are not currently set up to respond to those signals for tracking on our Sites.
If you provide us with comments, suggestions, recommendations or other feedback pertaining to our Services (collectively “Feedback’), you understand that we may (although we have no obligation to do so) retain, disclose, use, or otherwise commercially exploit that Feedback in connection with any or all of our Services without any compensation or consideration to you.

For EU data subjects: The Sites are not intended for children under the age of 16, and we do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from persons under the age of 16 from the EU.
