Privacy Policy

The Ethernet Technology Consortium recognizes that individuals with whom we conduct business value their privacy. However, in order to provide membership benefits in this increasingly electronic world, the collection of personal information is often necessary and desirable. It is the Consortium’s goal to balance the benefits of providing information and services via the Internet with the right of its members to prevent the misuse of their personal information.

The Collection of Personal Information

In some circumstances, the Ethernet Technology Consortium may request personal information from you, like your name, e-mail address, company name, or telephone number. Your response to these inquiries is strictly voluntary. The Ethernet Technology Consortium may use this information to customize your experience on our website. In addition, the Ethernet Technology Consortium may use this information for other business purposes, such as alerting you to Consortium news, upcoming events and activities, or other Ethernet Technology Consortium membership-related business.

In general, you can visit our site without divulging any personal information. However, there are areas of this site that require this information to complete their customization functions, and may not be available to those choosing not to reveal the information requested.

If you do not wish to receive information from us regarding new services or upcoming events, please tell us by sending email to us at the address under Contact Us.

Collecting Domain Information

This data enables us to become more familiar with people who visit our site, how often they visit and what parts of the site they visit most often.
