You can visit our Site as often as you like without registering; however, registration is required to use our E-Rental Store® online facility, and a separate registration is required to access the URdata® section of our Site (available to certain existing account customers). The information you furnish at the time of registration is used by Patton Construction Equipment Rentals to provide you with personalized service and/or to continually improve our Site for the benefit of our customers.

Patton Construction Equipment Rentals may collect the domain names of all visitors to our Site in order to measure the Site's effectiveness and to determine ongoing improvements.

We may provide aggregate statistics to reputable parties about the visitors to our Site, but these statistics will not include any personal or private information that identifies you.

When you initiate a transaction through our E-Rental Store® you may be asked for information that will allow us to properly complete your order.

We have legally binding agreements with many of our service providers that prohibit them from using customer information for any purpose other than what we instruct them to do with it.
