Web Site Use Information

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a Web site, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?

As you visit our Web site, the site uses its cookies to differentiate you from other customers. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from seeing unnecessary advertisements or requiring you to log in more than is necessary for security.

Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server's log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our Web site and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback in order to constantly improve our Web site and better serve our customers. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not generally store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.

Sharing Information with Third Parties

We may enter into alliances, partnerships or other business arrangements with third parties who may be given access to personal information including your name, address, telephone number and email for the purpose of providing you information regarding products and services that we think will be of interest to you.

In connection with alliances, partnerships or arrangements, we may also provide certain information to third parties if we have determined that the information will be used in a responsible manner by a responsible third party.

We also use third parties to facilitate our business, including, but not limited to, sending email and processing credit card payments. In connection with these offerings and business operations, our partners and other third parties may have access to your personal information for use in connection with business activities.

As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or any dissolution.

Sign up for any and every social media service to reserve our name (Islanders/ Identity theft is easy. Don't let it happen to us.

Profile setup:
  • Use company standard email address.
  • Add as much of our company information (address, toll-free, fax, etc.) as possible.
  • Set privacy settings to be as open as possible and still within the social rules of the community. Nothing is secret for us, but sometimes "friends" or "connections" don't want their stuff out there, so respect that.

Above all, our communications with people should be honest and fair. Never post anything you would be afraid for your Mom to see.

Respond to all communication within 24 hours in this order: employees, old/repeat customers, vendors, affiliates, new customers, potential customers. Always mark something as being worked or done as soon as you finish.

Give the customers not just information, but agency - the power to choose how they want their problem fixed.

YOU have the power to:
  • Design new policies and procedures.
  • Apply Lean principles to fix workflow problems and speed up any part of the business. Use 5 "Why?"s to figure out the root cause and fix that instead of the symptoms.
  • Engage customers in conversations where they are happening. You're representing us and we're trusting you. Act accordingly.

Word of mouth is extremely important to us. If you can make the experience better than expected, do it.
