Cookies and Web Beacons:
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit weldingleader.com. These advertising companies may use information (usually not your name, telephone number, address, or email address) about your visits to our website and other websites.
They generally get the information through cookies and web beacons that you ‘accept’ or ‘reject’ while entering our website.
These companies use this information to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. Or, in other words, provide targeted advertisements to you (such as showing you ads of New York-based companies’ furniture if you reside in New York).
We may also use embedded content (images, articles, videos) in any of our content. If we do so, these embedded contents act just like an independent website. More specifically, as if you visited the website from where the content is embedded.
Like most other websites we also use Google Analytics which is an automatic data collection system. By using it, we collect information regarding the device, browsing patterns, and activities of the visitors.
However, you don’t need to worry about it as we do not have any intention of using the information for our personal gain. We use it for statistical purposes.
If you don’t want us to collect your information through Google Analytics, you can do so by using a browser add-on. Here is the link to the add on: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Where We Share Your Data:
Besides, we understand very well that you and your information are very important assets for us. That is why we store and process your personal information on computers located in the United States that are secured by both technological and physical devices.
How Long Do We Retain Your Data?
Generally, we retain the comments you leave on this website for an indefinite period. We do it so that when a follow-up comment comes up, all the comments have coherence.
If you are a registered user of our website, we keep your registration information (like username, email address, profile picture, etc.) for an indefinite period too. In this way, you can edit your information (except the username) according to your wish. If the administrators of the website feel necessary, they may also edit a user’s information.
Your Rights On Your Personal Data:
Any user who has accounts on this website or has left comments has two rights over his data. Firstly, he can request the information that we hold regarding him from us. Secondly, he can request the information that we hold relating to him be removed from our database.
However, if we keep any data for legal, security, or administrative purposes, such requests may not get approved.
Where We Send Your Data:
Selling or sending your data to a third party is not our policy. But we do check the visitor comments through spam detection services that are generally automated.

We protect your data in a variety of ways. We encrypt your data so that it can’t be accessed by unauthorized individuals.
