This Privacy Policy describes the online data collection practices of SIMONSWERK North America, Inc. (“SIMONSWERK,” “we,” or “us”) and how we use and protect your personal information. This Privacy Policy applies only to the information collected on this website and does not apply to information that SIMONSWERK obtains from other sources.

By accessing or using this website, you are agreeing that this Privacy Policy forms a legally binding contract between you and SIMONSWERK. If you do not agree to the following Privacy Policy, do not access or use this website. Instead, please contact SIMONSWERK at the address or phone number below to request information.

Information We May Collect

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

When you visit our website, we may passively collect non-personally identifiable information about you via certain Internet technology tools. This information may include but is not limited to your IP address, cookies, and web beacons.

Your “IP address” is usually associated with your network location and physical location.

The term “cookies” refers to electronic data stored by your computer browser. The cookies enable us to facilitate your access to different aspects of the website and also can help us to improve your enjoyment of this website. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can disable this function so that your browser will not accept cookies. Please note that if you disable this function, you may impact your use and enjoyment of the website.

The term “web beacons” refers to Internet tools, such as transparent images on the website or in emails that we may send to you that help us to determine, for instance, whether a page has been viewed or an email opened. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page, including a banner, can contain a web beacon.

Personally Identifiable Information

In your use of the website, we may collect information that you voluntarily share with us when you send us e-mails or submit information to us via any forms on the website. This information may include your contact information (such as name, address, email address, and phone number) and any other information that you choose to provide us, subject to applicable laws and the terms of this Privacy Policy.

How We Use the Information We Collect

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We may use non-personally identifiable information in the aggregate to determine how much traffic the website receives, to statistically analyze website usage, to improve our content, and to customize the website's content, layout, and services. In addition, we may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to manage the website.

Personally Identifiable Information

We will use personally identifiable information for the purpose for which you provide it and as otherwise may be disclosed at the point of collection. We will not send you promotions or announcements unless you give us permission to do so. We may disclose your personal information to third-party agents, distributors or suppliers specifically involved in the processing of your information received via the website and as otherwise necessary to provide the services you request. We also may use third party service providers to host the website and to gather your personal information on our behalf. Except as stated above, we will never sell, distribute, or release to a third party your personal information without your express permission.

Access to your Personally Identifiable Information

Upon written request and verification of your identity, we will provide you with your personal information in our possession as well as the personal information, if any, that we have disclosed to third parties. You may also update, correct, or delete your personal information in our possession. Please send any such requests to our contact information below.

Electronic Records and Backup

In general, we will retain all information collected through the website for, at a minimum, the length of time permitted by law. However, we will delete any personally identifiable information in our database upon your request or as otherwise required by law. We may, however, retain non-personally identifiable information indefinitely.

We maintain backup files as a protection against natural disasters, equipment failures, or other disruptions. Backup files lower the risk of losing valuable data, and they may contain records with your personal information. Removing a record from our active files and databases does not remove that record from any backup systems. Such backup data will eventually be passively deleted as backup records are erased through the normal recycling of backup files. In the meantime, as long as backup records exist, they receive the same security protections as our other records.

Security

SIMONSWERK has implemented technology and security policies and procedures intended to protect your personally identifiable information. WHILE WE TRY TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, WE CANNOT ENSURE OR GUARANTEE THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION TRANSMITTED TO US, AND YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.

If we determine that your personal information has or may reasonably have been disclosed due to a security breach of our systems, we will notify you, at the contact information provided to us, in accordance with and to the extent permitted and required by applicable law.

We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of any third parties or third-party websites, including any linked or linking websites. To the extent that you disclose personally identifiable information to any such third parties, different rules may apply to their use and disclosure of personal information that you provide them. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of such websites before disclosing your personal information to them.
