    account, make a purchase, subscribe to our email list, post a
    review or participate in a survey. This may include
    information such as your name, email address, home or work
    address and telephone number for any transaction on the

    through any of our websites.

WHAT WE DO WITH IT

We may disclose some of your Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) to one or more of our own service providers that we may use to fulfill services for you. We will reasonably assure that those service providers are obligated to maintain the confidentiality of your PII, implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information, to protect the personal information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure, and only use or disclose it for the purposes we hire them for or law enforcement purposes. We may also disclose some of your PII directly to one or more of our own service providers that we use to fulfill services for you.

We may also disclose PII to others if we are required to do so by law, to protect and defend the rights of ELT/Kinedyne, or in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event.

If you provide any PII to us as part of a sweepstakes or contest entry, we may disclose such information to any third-party service providers, sponsors or co-sponsors of the sweepstakes or contest. In that case, when you enter a contest or sweepstakes, you may become subject to the privacy policy of these parties in addition to this Privacy Policy.

The security of your PII is important to us. Although we cannot guarantee against loss, misuse, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or destruction of data, we use commercially reasonable security measures to protect you from such occurrences. If necessary and/or in accordance with the law, we will disclose to you any known or reasonably suspected breach in security involving your PII.

This Privacy Policy is intended to comply with applicable United States laws and regulations, including the laws of particular states where our headquarters and customers are located. Our headquarters is located in the United States and our Web site is targeted only to residents of the United States. If you are not a resident of the United States, please note that our information gathering practices may not be compliant with your own country’s laws and regulations, and you should not share your PII with us unless you are willing and able to be subject to United States laws concerning such disclosures.

Telephone and Credit Card Operations:

In addition to the Basic Privacy Principles discussed above, the following policies apply specifically to telephone interactions with our sales representatives.

 

When you submit a purchase order to us, we will obtain some of your Personally Identifiable Information including your payment information. We will only use that PII from your order for purposes concerning the fulfillment of your order. In doing so, your PII from an order may be used or shared among our different departments, representatives or service providers such as our sales offices, our warehouses, our headquarters, the manufacturers of products you have purchased, the freight carriers used to deliver products to you, installers or designers we have engaged to assist with your order, or our credit card merchant banks or other bankers. We will share only that portion of your PII with third parties that is reasonably required to fulfill your order, and those third parties will be contractually obligated to use the PII only for order-fulfillment purposes.

We will comply with our credit card merchant banks’ requirements for the use and storage of your credit card information, such as obligations concerning the security of your credit card numbers, as well as any laws that apply to that information’s use and storage.

Web Site:

In addition to the Basic Privacy Principles discussed above, the following policies apply specifically to our Web sites: (ELTLift.com, bridgebearings.com).

Our Web site may allow you to browse our products and submit inquiries in a web form that may be provided, in whole or in part, by one or more third party web services providers. The portions of our Web site that allow you to submit an inquiry by giving your personal information use industry standard encryption methods such as secure-socket layer (‘HTTPS’) technology to protect your information while in transit between your computer, our computers, and our third party web service providers’ systems.

Once your inquiry has been received by us through the web form system, we will then process and fulfill your request subject to the privacy policies described above. Our third party web service providers are under contract with us to maintain the confidentiality and security of your sensitive personal information, and not to use it for any purpose other than assisting with the submission of your inquiry.

Anonymous, non-Personally Identifiable Information such as your IP address, domain server, type of computer or device, type of web browser, and addresses of referring site, also known as traffic data, may be collected and used for web analytics, to approximate a user’s location, monitor fraudulent orders, and to diagnose problems with our server and administer our site. We may have functionality on our Web site that is provided, in whole or in part, by a third party service provider.

You can usually identify such third-party functionality by the use of a trademark not owned by ELT/Kinedyne on or near the functionality. In that case, when you use thate functionality, you become subject to the terms of use and privacy policy of this third party in addition to the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use of our Web site. In some cases, you may need to visit that party’s web site and locate the terms of use and privacy policy.

For example, we may use a third-party service to prevent robots from being able to crawl and spam our site. Within the site, you may be required to perform a simple “test” to submit information to us to confirm that you are a human and not a robot. This allows us to better protect the information you submit to us and allows our customer service team to focus on what matters most – servicing you.
