How do we protect personal information?
The security of your personal information is important to us. We maintain commercially reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards, each of which may vary depending on the sensitivity of such information. Such safeguards are designed to protect against unauthorized use, disclosure or access of personal information we collect through Our Websites. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be absolutely guaranteed as fully secure. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant complete data security.
What personal information do we collect?
We may collect personal information from you when you voluntarily provide it to us (e.g. through Our Website, text, fax, phone, mobile application, third-parties, subsidiaries, affiliates, or otherwise). For example, we may ask you to provide personal information in accordance with our legitimate business interests if you:
- agree to receive online information from us, such as e-mail newsletters or e-mail updates, from which you may unsubscribe at any time;
- participate in a review, survey, a consumer research panel, or similar type of activity;
- conduct business with us, in which case we will,in order to manage your account, collect certain information from you (e.g. at a trade show, through a mobile app, by connecting with us through social networking, on a webpage, etc.);
- have authorized a third-party to share relevant information about you that may be relevant to your account with us;
- apply for employment with us or any of our affiliate companies, in which case you would provide personal information contained on your resume or on other submitted materials;
- contact us through a web portal and provide us with contact information for us to respond to your inquiry;
- enter into any contest, giveaway or sweepstakes that we may from time to time conduct, in which case we would collect information required to contact and inform participants about the status of their entry;
- enter into a contract with us or one of our affiliated entities;
- provide feedback regarding our services or products;
- file a complaint or incident report explaining a factual scenario that identifies you as someone involved in or who witnesses the thing you are reporting to us;
- visit one of our facilities equipped with IT or security equipment that permits our security staff to monitor people on the premises;
- provide us administrative, analytic, security, compliance or other services to support our legitimate business purposes;
- are involved in our charitable or philanthropic activities (e.g. scholarships, donations, etc.), which requires identifying people and institutions participating in such activities;
- contact any of our customer service departments, in which case we will ask you for personal information in order to access and service your account; or
- otherwise participate in features of Our Website that ask for personal information.
In addition, if you otherwise request any information, service or other offering from us, you may be required to providepersonal information in order for us to process your request.
Your participation in any of these activities is voluntary and we will only use the personal information that you provide for the purposes for which it was collected. For example, we may use the personal information you provide us to respond to your questions or comments, fulfill your requests, provide you with services or products, identify your needs or preferences, administer and manage our business operations, or otherwise provide or improve our products and services in accordance with our legitimate business interests.
By contrast, we will not use personal information collected for one purpose for some other purpose. For instance, personal information collected to verify your identity during a phone call with one of our customer service centers would not be used to enroll you in an e-mail newsletter unless you also consent to such enrollment. When it comes to any mailing, newsletter or the like, you will always have the opportunity to “unsubscribe” from such communications at any time you choose.
