KlearTek Webstore is Launching Soon

You may have visited our site recently and noticed that we have our black and blue MX200 portable SSDs, however, at this time we are unable to process your order. You may be wondering why that is? Well, the site is fully functional, including the shopping cart and credit card processing. The only holdup at the moment is our payment gateway provider. They are requiring us to publish a privacy policy. In order for us to process real money, our privacy policy needs to be finalized and published. Then we’ll notify our payment gateway provider. Once that’s all done, we’ll be ready to take orders on our custom, built-to-order MX200 portable SSDs.

It’s taking us a little longer than anticipated to publish a privacy policy because we take privacy very seriously and have some very important decisions to make before we can move forward. But we can promise that the KlearTek webstore is launching soon.

One of the dilemmas we have been faced with is analytics.  We understand analytics and we see the value in collecting information from visitors. However, we want to respect the privacy of others while at the same time gaining invaluable analytical data. So rather than using allegedly free tools like Google Analytics or Bing Webmaster Tools, we have opted to use a truly free and open-source analytics platform called Piwik. The difference between Google and Bing offerings versus Piwik is that when we use the latter we own the data and have complete control over it. The version we are using is self-hosted, meaning the data lives on our servers. Whereas if we were to use the other tools, the data collected on our site would be shared and sold to advertisers without our visitors consent. With Piwik we have much more control of how your data is collected and used.

We hope you will support us in this privacy-led initiative. We will keep you informed on our privacy policy as new developments arrive. Some of the things we have yet to decide on is weather to integrate social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Google+ and Instagram. As of now we are leaning away from those platforms because they pose additional privacy threats to our visitors.
