How We Use Information
We use the information you provide about yourself only to complete your requested

extent necessary to complete each transaction. With our Equipment Database, we only
disclose personal information you submit to the other party after you have confirmed
your want to make contact with them. We use return email addresses to answer the
email we receive. Such addresses are not shared with outside parties. You can register
with our website if you would like to receive information about Fastline as well
as updates on our new services. Information you submit on our website will not be
used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form. We will email you
with messages and advertising which we think will be of interest to you. If you
do not wish to receive email messages from us, please contact the
Web Master. We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design
our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser
that X number of users visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number visitors
filled out our registration form, but we will not disclose anything that could be
used to identify those individuals.

our services to, children under 13 years of age. We endeavor to provide a safe online
environment for users of all ages. We permit only authorized employees or suppliers,
who are trained in the proper handling of customer information, to have access to
customer information. Whenever we hire other organizations to provide support services,
we require them to conform to our privacy standards and to allow us to audit them
for compliance. We will not reveal customer information to any external organization
unless we have previously informed the customer in disclosures or agreements, have
been authorized by the customer, or are required by law. Finally, we never use or
share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated
to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out
or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

request. To tell us you do not want to receive communications from us, such as e-mail
