This site is owned and operated by Estes Heating & Air. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At Estes Heating & Air, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.

INFORMATION ESTES HEATING & AIR GATHERS AND TRACKS

- Information Estes Heating & Air gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our site. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to help us better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does Estes Heating & Air divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
Estes Heating & Air Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
1. Electronic newsletters policy (Dispatches)
We will offer a free electronic newsletter to users. Estes Heating & Air gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily submit one. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by filling out the form provided in the contact us section of our website. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters on the home page of our website.
2. Schedule services / contact us forms
Users of the schedule services and contact us forms must voluntarily submit personal information for these services, although they do not have to submit information to visit the site. During the submittal of messages the user is required to supply a name, address, phone number, and email address.
From time to time, we may offer interactive polls to users. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. Estes Heating & Air may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
Estes Heating & Air may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our products / services to our customers. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
Estes Heating & Air tracks user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Estes Heating & Air does break down 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).
Estes Heating & Air sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms those users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and dislike based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
How the information you gather is used if relevant.

We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
