Web server log files contain information regarding visitor entry and exit pages, time spent per page, the referring web sites, and type of browser used.

D. Linking and External Web Sites
Microbattery.com contains links to third party web sites:
We employ separate third party services which host http://www.microbattery.com and its subdomain, http://www.microbattery.com. Visitors land on our subdomain when any one product or some of our product categories are selected. When our subdomain is accessed, the URL in the browser address bar is prefixed http://www.microbattery.com/".
The third party service which hosts our products on our subdomain, also hosts our accounting and management software, and our shopping cart features. Visitors land on the site of our third party provider under the following circumstances: a) when our shopping cart is activated by clicking "Add to Cart" buttons, or b) when the "My Account", "Login", "View Cart", or "Checkout" links located on the top of our web site pages are accessed. For the convenience of our visitors and to avoid confusion, we employ techniques to mask the third party host address displayed in the address bar and to give visitors the look and feel of Microbattery.com. Personal identifiable information provided on these pages are collected and used by Microbattery.com as described in Section A "Collection and Use of Personal, Identifying Information" of this Privacy Statement. Pages hosted by our third party provider can be identified as those containing the following strings in the URL: "www.microbattery.com/" or "checkout.netsuite.com/".
We also use third party providers to handle our credit card processing and shipping of our products
A variety of external links are provided in our Links and Resources section of our web site. These links are provided solely for the convenience of our visitors. At Microbattery.com, we take reasonable care in recommending these web sites. However, because third party web sites are not under our control and may not have the same privacy policies as Microbattery.com, we assume no responsibility for their content, their privacy policies, their legal or ethical practices, or for any failures, modifications, or removals of their instituted security methods. We urge users to read the privacy statements and terms of service of a third party web site when leaving our site. Entries posted in our Links and Resources section should not be construed as endorsements of the web sites, their policies, or the products and services offered therein.
Microbattery.com has taken steps to ensure that personal, identifying information we collect [see Section A above] is secure, and we have limited the number of people who have access to the information by electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Microbattery.com provide a secure environment using industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for our users to transmit information on our online order form. SSL encrypts all sensitive personal information entered on our online order form so that it cannot be intercepted and read as the information travels over the Internet; it also provides a way to verify that the transmission has not been altered en-route. SSL authenticates the server and renders your information inaccessible to any unauthorized computer or network. The presence of SSL encryption is usually evidenced by a) the presence of an image depicting a closed lock appearing in the task bar or in the address bar of your browser, and/or b) the prefixing of the URL address with "https://" protocol (the "s" indicates a secure encrypted connection).
