Octopart is a search engine that helps you find electronic parts. We search the web for information about parts, components and devices; and then you go directly to a part distributor's website to make your purchase. So, this means we do not take your credit card information and we do not take your hard earned money. Registration on Octopart is strictly voluntary. You do get some cool information and access to certain great features if you do register, but membership is not necessary to use our search functions.
Octopart does not react to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
