Basic Privacy Principles:
The following “Basic Privacy Principles” apply throughout our entire enterprise, whether we gather information through our sales representatives or our Web site.
WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT
In order to provide the best possible customer service experience in
your interactions with us, we collect:
- Personally identifiable information when you voluntarily submit
information to us by doing any of the following: register for an
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
website, point-of-purchase transactions and any contests that we
- Anonymous demographic information automatically collected
that is not unique to you, such as age, gender, interests,
preferences and location. Along with Information about the
device you use, access times, and behavior when browsing
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
These third-party service providers do not know your name, phone number, address, email address, or any other personally identifying information about you.
