- take commercially reasonable steps to ensure your personal information is reliable for its intended use and accurate, complete, and, where necessary, updated;

4. Information Collected on Proaks Metal Internet Sites and How It May Be Used
When you access and use a Proaks Metal Internet Site, there are 3 ways Proaks Metal may collect information about you:
I. Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser
Proaks Metal collects information that is sent to it automatically by your web browser. The information typically includes the IP address of your Internet service provider, the name of your operating system (such as Macintosh® or Windows®) and the name and version of your browser (such as Internet Explorer® ). The information Proaks Metal receives depends on the settings on your web browser. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings.
The information provided by your browser does not identify you personally. Proaks Metal uses the information to create statistics to help it improve its sites and make them more compatible with the technology used by our Internet visitors.
II. Information Collected By Placing a “Cookie” On Your Computer
Proaks Metal may obtain information about you by installing a “tag” on your computer’s hard drive. This tag is known as a “cookie.”
Some of the Proaks Metal Internet Sites use “session cookies.” A session cookie is used to tag your computer with a computer-generated, unique identifier when you access a Proaks Metal Internet Site. A session cookie does not identify you personally and expires after you close your browser. Proaks Metal uses session cookies to collect statistical information about the ways visitors use its sites – which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page. Proaks Metal analyzes this information (known as “clickstream data”) in statistical form to better understand visitors’ interests and needs in order to improve the content and functionality of Proaks Metal sites.
Some Proaks Metal Internet sites also use “persistent cookies.” These cookies do not expire when you close your browser; they stay on your computer until you delete them. By assigning your computer a unique identifier, Proaks Metal is able to create a database of your previous choices and preferences, and in situations where these choices or preferences need to be collected again, they can be provided by Proaks Metal automatically, saving you time and effort. For example, after you make a purchase, if you decide to make another purchase, your shipping address will have been retained and will only need to be confirmed.
Where legally required, you may customize your cookie settings provided on a Proaks Metal Internet Site via the cookie banner and settings. Although you are not required to accept cookies when you visit a Proaks Metal Internet Site, you may be unable to use all of the functionality of the site if your browser rejects Proaks Metal’ cookies.
