Privacy Statement

GEON Performance Solutions gathers two types of information about its users:

  • Data that users provide through voluntary registration on our site.
  • Aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our site.

Such information enables us to better tailor our content to users’ needs and helps us understand the demographics of our audience. Information is gathered using the following:

  • User Registration – Although many features of this web site are available to anonymous users, some areas require registration prior to accessing content. By registering, users take advantage of various personalized features such as the ability to invoke unique functions and content based on their identity. During registration, users supply information required to enable transactions including, but not limited to, username, password, address, e-mail address and country.
  • Usage Tracking – GEON Performance Solutions tracks user traffic patterns throughout this site; however, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. GEON Performance Solutions does segment overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).
  • Cookies – A cookie is a small data file that some web sites attach to users’ hard drives when they visit the sites. A cookie file can contain information, such as a user ID, which the site uses to track the pages users have visited. The only personal information a cookie can contain has to be supplied by the user.

A cookie cannot read data off a hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. GEON Performance Solutions uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above) when users register for access to restricted areas of this site. When users register, GEON Performance Solutions uses a cookie to store the user ID. Cookies enable users to enter various parts of the GEON Performance Solutions site as a registered user without having to log on each time and to visit other restricted areas of the site with similar security settings.
