Information About All Our Visitors
We collect certain information from and about our users in three ways – directly from the user, from our Web server logs, and with cookies.
User-Supplied Information: There are several areas in the Site where we collect personal information from you on a voluntary basis. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable, such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, credit card details, and other personal information included in an order submitted by you. We may collect this information at the following times; (i) when you create an account; (ii) when you register to receive communications from this Site and/or other Edge owned sites; (iii) when you seek information about, or purchase, products offered through this Site or other Edge owned sites; and (iv) when you provide personal information to us through feedback, surveys, or other forms provided on this Site or other Edge owned sites.
Server Log Information: When you visit an Internet site, you disclose certain information about yourself, such as your IP address, browser type, the time of your visit, and the referring location (e.g., the site page that offered a link to our Site page). Other information disclosed includes clickstream data, which includes a record of the clicked selections you make while visiting this Site. Like many other sites, we record this basic information about visits to this Site.
You should remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose information online, such as on message boards, through e-mail, discussion groups, or in chat areas, your information can be collected and used by others. Although we try to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. You are solely responsible of maintaining the secrecy of any passwords you set up and/or any account information.

How We Protect Your Information
Except in connection with providing information to our business associates for the purpose of responding to inquiries made by you, and performing our obligations to you, we do not use or disclose your personal information to any third parties without your permission. Any aggregated statistical ratings information we may provide to prospective advertisers or partners, as noted above, will not contain any such personal information.
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from our online products or services. You transmit all such information at your own risk.
Who Has Access to the Information
Except as described in this policy, we will not willfully disclose any individually identifiable information about users of this Site to any third party without first receiving that user’s permission. We may disclose your information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to protect our or other’s rights or property.
We may disclose your information to trusted third parties who assist us in operating our Site, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our Site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. We may also provide your information, including e-mail addresses, to any purchaser of all or substantially all of the assets of Thomas Scientific, Inc., or any successor by merger or operation of law. WHILE WE STRIVE TO SELECT THIRD PARTY PARTNERS WHO HAVE OR SHARE THE SAME STANDARDS IN REGARDS TO PRIVACY POLICIES COMPARABLE TO ITS OWN THE USER AGREES THAT WITH RESPECT TO THOSE THIRD PARTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE SITES WE LINK TO, WE DO NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY REGARDING THE SAME, NOR WILL WE BE RESPONSIBLE TO THE USER OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES OR OTHER MATERIAL THAT MAY BE SOLD, LICENSED, DISTRIBUTED OR PROMOTED BY SUCH THIRD PARTIES OR ON SUCH SITES, OR FOR ANY CONTENT ON SUCH SITES.

Third Party Links
California Privacy Rights/Do Not Track Notice
This paragraph applies only to California residents. We may, from time to time, share you personally identifiable information with unaffiliated third parties or their direct marketing purposes. As a California resident, you have a legal right to request and receive in writing or by e-mail the names and addresses of all such third parties who received your personally identifiable information during the previous calendar year and a list of the types of personally identifiable information disclosed to such third parties. To request such information, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or write to:
c/o President of Edge
218 Central Ave., Newark, NJ 07102
We will not honor such a request more than once per calendar year.
We do not track our customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising, and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third-party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are vising such site, you may set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
