NOTICE: Information We Collect and How We Use It
ATE collects two types of information about you when you visit our site: personal information (including, by way of example only, your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address) and non-personal, aggregate information (such as information regarding the pages on our site that you have visited and your IP address).

1. Personally-Identifiable Information - What We Collect

The only personally-identifying information we collect and store about you is the information that you choose to provide to us.

The ATE portfolio is an easy way to keep track of the ATE products you like. Visitors can establish a portfolio by submitting their name (required), physical and e-mail addresses and telephone number (optional), and by choosing a password (required). To access the portfolio, visitors will be required to enter their username (a combination of their first and last names) and password.

2. Sharing Your Information

We may share your personally-identifiable information with companies within the ATE family of companies.

3. Non Personally-Identifiable Information: What We Collect

We collect and use non-personally identifiable information about you in the following ways:

At certain points in your visit to the ATE site, our server may send a "cookie" file to your computer. Your Web browser may prompt you to accept this file unless you have set your browser preferences to accept all cookies automatically. Cookies are employed primarily as a service to our customers, to extend the relevance and responsiveness of the ATE site. We may link cookie information with any personally-identifiable information you provide us.

Other Non-Personally-Identifiable Information

The ATE Web site may collect non-personally identifiable information during your visit, such as type of browser, operating system, domain name, or IP address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers -- the big computers that "serve" up Web pages -- automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you visit pages on ATE's Web site our servers log your IP address. We do not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable information. This means that your session will be logged, but you remain anonymous to us. IP address information is used only to improve the service of the ATE site, and is then discarded at the end of each session on our site.

ATE also collects information through "referrers" and various environmental variables. A "referrer" is information the Web browser passes along to ATE's Web server that references the URL from which you came. "Environmental variables" include, among other things, the domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed our Web site, type of Web browser and operating system or platform used, the Internet address of the Web site you left to visit ATE, the names of the pages you visit while at our Web site, and the Internet address of the Web site you then visit. We collect all of this information to allow us to detect broad demographic trends, to provide information tailored to your interests and to enhance your experience on ATE's Web site. ATE may store "referrer" information for a limited period of time prior to deleting this information.


To help us improve our Web site and to ensure that we make every effort to provide you with information and offers that are of interest to you, we may merge your personally-identifiable information with click-stream data and other data we have (including cookies and offline data). We will provide notice of this, as well as an opportunity to opt-out of it, at the time and place of information collection and before data is entered on our system.

We may also develop a non-identifiable profile on you based on the pages within our site that you visit.

4. Links

This Web site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that they visit. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected when you visit our Web site.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so you will always be aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
