We understand that our number one asset is our ‘members' and we will never knowingly do anything to harm the trust you have bestowed on us. When you become a member of ortelcom.com, or subscribe to our newsletters, we ask you a series of general demographic questions. We then compile the information that you provide us with the information other members provide us and make the compiled result available to our advertisers and partners.

We use any information voluntarily you give us to enhance your experience in our site, which is to provide you with interactive or personalized elements on the sites and to better prepare future content based on your interests. We aggregate this tracking information to determine which areas of our site members like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We don't track what individual members read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.

We also use the information that is gathered to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our advertisers better understand our audience's demographics. This is essential to keeping our service free. Members may unsubscribe to any of our electronic newsletters at any time by following the instructions contained at the end of every newsletter.
