We use anonymous technical information to monitor our Website’s performance (e.g., number of visits, average time spent, page views, countries of origin of Website visitors) and for our business purposes, such as working to continually upgrade our Website.

We make no attempt to link anonymous technical information, however acquired, with the identity of individuals visiting our Website unless; (1) we or our internet service providers detect or reasonably suspect an attempt to damage the RMD Group Website or other security breach; or (2) we are required to do so by law.

How is Your Privacy Protected?

Thus, if you request information from us, we may use the email address that you provide to send you information about products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. If you ask us to put you on an email mailing list to provide you with certain information on a regular basis, or if we send you information about our products and services by email, you may ask us to remove you from the list at any time (using the unsubscribe instructions provided with each email and on the site where you signed up).
