Privacy Policy

Bearings, LLC. takes very seriously the private nature of your personal information. This Privacy Policy describes how we treat the information we collect when you visit our website and/or register for your email editions. Please read this notice carefully.

Personal Information

In order to supply you with your Bearings e-mail, we need your e-mail address. So that we may provide you with additional services, we may also request your name, geographical coordinates, and preferences. Bearings does not collect any other personal information that you do not expressly provide. Bearings may use this information to sell advertising and services, or may share your personal information for the purpose of delivering e-mail to you or as required by law.

Non-Personal Information

Bearings may also request non-personally identifiable information, such as annual income, buying preferences, or age, also known as demographic and profile data. Though this information is optional, we may use it to improve our site and/or tailor your experience on our site, showing you content that we think you might be interested in and displaying content according to your preferences. We may also share this information with others, such as advertisers interested in advertising in the Bearings e-mail or on the site, in aggregate, anonymous form, which means that the information will not contain any personally identifiable information about you or any other person.

Usage Information

In addition to collecting personal and non-personal information, Bearings may also collect non-personal, aggregated information about subscribers’ use of Bearings e-mails and the website. This information is not personally identifiable and will be used only to find out how subscribers use our service and site. For example, this information will tell us how much time users spend on the Bearings site, what pages they visit, what ads they click, from which sites subscribers came, and to what sites subscribers go. The collection of this information allows us to, among other things, prepare for traffic load demands, to efficiently deliver Bearings and to monitor the relevance of our content and advertising.

Choice/Opt Out

If we ever send you information by e-mail concerning new products or services that you did not expressly request, we will provide you with an e-mail address by which you may request no future notices. We also offer an unsubscribe link in every Bearings email edition.
