Information Collection
When you browse nesrentals.com and have not registered for any online service from NES, you browse anonymously. Personal information - such as your name, address, phone number or E-mail address - is not collected as you browse. NES may, however, use "cookies" to collect information about how our site is used. Information, such as the server your computer is logged onto, your browser type (for example, Netscape or Internet Explorer), and whether you responded to an NES banner ad or E-mail may be collected and tracked in aggregate. This information is used for the purpose of measuring response rates to banner ads and E-mail offers. Registration for Online Products and Services. In order to provide you with a particular product or service online, we may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal or Company information, including your E-mail address and customer number, for purposes such as correspondence, site registration, checking your Rental Agreements, Invoices, Statements and other pertinent information online, making a purchase, submitting a Credit Application, or participating in online surveys and enabling us to provide an online product or service to you in an efficient manner. If you are known to us as a registered user of an NES online service, we may combine information about your use of nesrentals.com or other NES websites and the online products or services you utilize with certain other online and offline information we have about you as an NES customer and information you have provided to us as well as information available from external sources, such as census bureau data, in order to customize your online experience and present you with relevant online and offline offers and updates. We also may use a "cookie" to enable our server to recognize you as a registered NES online service user when you re-enter our site.


Information Use
We may use information you have given us to, for example, provide a service, ensure proper product deliveries or billing, measure consumer interest in our various services and inform you about products and services. If you have provided your E-mail address to us or to a company we've partnered with to make their products and services available to you, we may send you E-mail offers. We may also send you E-mail offers if you have provided your E-mail address to a third party and have actively chosen or requested, on an opt-in basis, to receive E-mail offers from other parties. These offers may be based on information you provided in your initial transaction with us, in surveys, from information that may indicate purchasing preferences as well as information available from external sources, such as census bureau data. These E-mail offers come directly from NES. You can opt out from receiving E-mail offers from NES as described below in the section, "Declining E-mail offers". When we send E-mails to you, we may be able to identify information about your E-mail address, such as whether you can read graphic-rich html E-mails. If your E-mail address is html-enabled, we may choose to send you graphic-rich html E-mails. Please note that we do not provide your E-mail address to NES business partners. However, we may send you offers on behalf of our NES business partners. Keep in mind that if you take advantage of an offer from an NES business partner and become their customer, they may independently wish to send offers to you. In this case, you will need to inform them separately if you wish to decline receiving future offers from them.


Declining E-mail Offers
NES provides customers with an easy means to decline receiving E-mail offers. Although some customers will appreciate receiving notice of these carefully designed opportunities, we recognize the importance of providing you with choices. At any time, you may request to discontinue receiving these offers from us by simply replying to the E-mail and informing us of your preferences. All E-mail offers that you received from NES will inform you of how to decline receiving further E-mail offers.
