The Context for the efftronics Privacy Statement

An entity is a member of the “Efftronics Systems Pvt. Ltd.” if it is affiliated with Efftronics Systems Pvt. Ltd. and contains “Efftronics” in its name. Our primary products and services relate to the Data Loggers and associated development tools (and while we do not anticipate it, this may change). Our primary customers are businesses and, as a result, we do not collect a great deal of "personal information" (specifically, information about an identifiable individual) and almost no sensitive personal information. Of course, to the extent that we do collect personal information we want to respect your privacy
