We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting the personal information that you furnish. In general, you can visit us on the Internet without identifying yourself or providing personal information. There are times when we may need personal information from you and this Privacy Statement describes the information we collect from you and how we may use it.
What Information Is Collected from You?
Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual. This includes but is not limited to: first and last name, email address, mailing and residential address, telephone number, title, birth date, gender, occupation, company you work for and other information needed to provide a service you have requested.
When you browse our website and subsidiary sites, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish us to remember your login and password. We do not log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. However, we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have registered and logged in to our website.
When you visit certain web pages, you need to be registered and to login with a password. The use of those web pages, and the information downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and us. Unless you request your personal information to be deleted, it may be retained by us to verify compliance with the agreement, to track software and documents downloaded by you, or track page visits and usage of other applications available on our site. We may receive personal information from its business partners and suppliers. We only use such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with its policy and applicable laws.
Use of the Information
When we collect personal information from you, we will inform you at that time of the reason we have requested it. The information will only be used for our business purposes, such as, to respond to requests for products, documentation, and services, to process an order, to conduct a transaction, to correspond, to enable a subscription or event registration, to handle job applications or send direct marketing information and perform market research. We will also use your information to personalize the content you view and to better understand how you use the website in order to improve the services we provide.
In specific cases, we will request your direct consent to use your personal information by providing an “opt-in” check box in information collection fields before it can be used for any purposes other than that for which it was given.
If you choose to provide us with personal information, we may transfer that information, within our company or to our business partners, across borders and from your country of residence or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.
We will only share identifiable information with its business partners, if you have provided us with your consent to do so.
In the event that we sell a part or parts of our business, the identifiable information that we have collected could be transferred to the acquiring company unless you instruct us not to do so in writing.
Please take note of the following to ensure information security:
You should be aware that when you disclose identifiable information in the discussion forum or chat rooms, such information is accessible to and collectable by others present.
We advise you to protect yourself against unauthorized access to your computer and disclosure of your password. If you believe that your password has been compromised, you should immediately change your password.
During your online experience, you may encounter links to the sites of our business partners who might include standards bodies, customers, channel customers, or suppliers. Though a connection might be made to a business partner site, We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other businesses.
We strive to comply with all applicable laws around the world that are designed to protect your privacy. Although legal requirements may vary from country to country, We intend to adhere to the principles set forth in this Privacy Statement even if, in conjunction with the above, we transfer your information from your country of residence to countries that may not require the same level of protection for your information. Our goal is to protect your information no matter where that information is collected, transported, or retained.
