Data collected automatically. We may collect certain data about all visitors to our websites, including what pages they  view, the number of bytes transferred, the links they click, and other actions taken within our websites. On websites to  which you logon, we may connect this information with your identity to determine your potential interests in our  products and services. We may also use this information to improve our security measures. We may also collect  certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your Internet Protocol (IP)  address, your browser type and capabilities and language, your operating system, the date and time you access the  site, and the website from which you linked to our site. We do not link these data to your identity. 

Our use of personal data 

We will use personal data provided only for the purposes set forth below. 

Services and transactions. We use your personal data to deliver services or execute transactions you request, such  as providing information about products and services, processing orders, answering customer service requests,  facilitating use of our websites and so forth. In order to offer you a more consistent experience in interacting with the  Company, information collected by our websites may be combined with information we collect by other means. 

Website improvement. We may use your data to improve our websites (including our security measures) and related  products or services, or to make our websites easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the  same information or by customizing our websites to your particular preference or interests.

In connection with a job application or inquiry, you may provide us with data about  yourself, including your educational background, resume or curriculum vitae, and other information, including your  ethnicity where required or permitted by law.

Our use of cookies and web beacons 

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.
