Our use of personal data
Cookies are small files that websites save to your hard disk or to your browser’s memory. Our websites may use them to track the number of times you have visited the website, to track the number of visitors to the website, to determine and analyze visitors’ use of our websites, to store data that you provide (such as your preferences and email address), and to store technical information related to your interactions with our websites. We may also use session cookies, which are deleted when you close your browser, to store your user ID, to facilitate your movement around our websites (particularly in connection with information searches and order placement) and other information useful in administering the session.
Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies or to notify you when a cookie is being placed on your computer. If you choose not to accept cookies, you may not be able to experience all of the features of our websites. Internet browsers also enable you to delete existing cookies, although this means that your existing settings (including stored user IDs and other preferences) may be lost.
Our sites also may contain electronic images known as Web beacons—sometimes called single-pixel gifs—that allow us to count the number of users who have visited those pages. We may include Web beacons in promotional email messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon, including whether the recipient clicked on a link in the email or forwarded the email to another person.
Disclosure of your personal data
Except as described below, personal data provided to the Company via our websites will not be shared outside of the Company and its joint ventures without your consent.
Disclosure to service providers. The Company may contract with other companies to provide services on our behalf, such as hosting websites, sending out information, processing transactions, and analyzing our websites. We provide these companies with only those elements of this data they need to deliver those services. These companies and their employees are prohibited from using that data for any other purposes.
Disclosure in connection with transactions. In connection with certain transactions, we may disclose some or all of your data to financial institutions, government entities and shipping companies or postal services involved in fulfilling the transaction.
Disclosures in connection with acquisitions or divestitures. Circumstances may arise where, for strategic or other business reasons, the Company decide to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize particular businesses. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of the data provided to prospective or actual purchasers, or receiving it from sellers. It is the Company’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.
Disclosure on collaborative websites. Some of our websites promote collaboration among registered users with respect to a particular area or topic. On those websites, we may share your username with other participants to label comments or suggestions that you make as yours. We do not, however, share your name, contact details, or personal data with other users of those collaborative websites.
Disclosure for other reasons. We may disclose data provided if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with legal requirements or with legal process served on us, to protect and defend our rights or property, or in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of any individual.
The Company is committed to protecting the security of your personal data. We may use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
For sites to which you login, it is your responsibility to ensure the security of your password and not to reveal this information to others. If you are sharing a computer with anyone, you should always logout before leaving a website so that subsequent users will not be able to access your data.
Links to other websites
Our websites may contain links to other websites, including those of other companies, professional and government organizations, and publications. Although we try to link only to websites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we do not control and are not responsible for the content, security or privacy practices employed by other websites. You should review the privacy statements of those websites to determine how they protect and use your data.
