Your privacy is important to Alliedstrand. We recognize the importance of protecting your personal information and we are committed to handling it responsibly and in compliance with the applicable data protection laws in all of the countries in which we operate. Furthermore, we are committed to being transparent and open about out privacy practices.
What do we mean by “personal information”?
For us, “personal information” means information which identifies you, like your name or email address.
Any information that falls outside of this is “non-personal information.”
If we store your personal information with information that is non-personal, we will consider the combination as personal information. If we remove all personal information from a set of data then the remaining is non-personal information.
How do we learn information about you?
We learn information about you when:
- you give it to us directly;
- we collect it automatically through our websites and services; or
- when we try and understand more about you based on information you have given to us (e.g. when we use your IP address to customize language for some of our services).
What do we do with your information once we have it?
When you give us information, we will use it in the ways for which you have given us permission. Generally, we use your information to help us provide and improve our products and services for you.
When do we share your information with others?
- When we have asked and received your permission to share it.
- For processing or providing products and services to you, but only if those entities receiving your information are contractually obligated to handle the data in ways that are approved by Alliedstrand.
- When the law requires it. We follow the law whenever we receive requests about you from a government or related to a lawsuit. We will notify you when we are asked to hand over your personal information in this way unless we are legally prohibited from doing so. When we receive requests like this, we will only release your personal information if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. Nothing in this policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party’s request to disclose your information.
- If our organizational structure or status changes (if we undergo a restructuring, are acquired, or go bankrupt) we may pass your information to a successor or affiliate.
How do we store and protect your personal information?
We are committed to protecting your personal information once we have it and we make reasonable efforts to do so. We implement physical, business and technical security measures. Despite our efforts, if we learn of a security breach, we will notify you so that you can take appropriate protective steps.
What else should you know?
If you are under 13, we do not want your personal information, and you must not provide it to us. If you are a parent and believe that your child who is under 13 has provided us with personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your child’s information removed.
We may need to change this policy and our notices. The updates will be posted online. If the changes are substantive, we will announce the update through the Alliedstrand’s usual channels for such announcements such as blog posts, forums or any suitable media of our choosing. Your continued use of the products or services after the effective date of such changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes. To make your review more convenient, we will post an effective date at the top of the page.
