Notification of changes to this Policy
We are continually improving and adding new functionality and features to this Website and improving and adding to its existing products, services and programs. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law and the changing nature of technology, our data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, we will notify you of the changes via this page. We encourage you to check this page frequently.
Collection of Personal Data including e-mail addresses
We collect information you give to us when you use our Website. You may use this Website to register to receive additional information on products and services, or support from us. When you register, we ask you for contact information like your name, job title, company details, telephone number and e-mail address. We may supplement the information you provide with information that is received from a third party. The information you give us either manually or electronically is stored in our databases.
We collect email addresses from prospect lists of other companies or organisations. We also use rented email lists but only if the list is specifically an opt-in list, that is, lists of users who have explicitly agreed to receive email messages from third parties.
We collect email addresses via marketing events such as trade shows and exhibitions. When we collect event leads we do not include an email opt-out mechanism because we assume that people who give out their email address at marketing events are opting to receive email messages from third parties.
Use of Personal Data
We process your Personal Data only for specific and limited purposes. We ask only for data that is adequate, relevant and not excessive for those purposes. We use your personal data for the purposes registered in our notification at the Data Protection Register. Some of these purposes include the following;
- We may contact you occasionally to inform you of new products or services we will be providing, or special offers, events or articles we think will be of interest to you.
- We may send you regular updates by e-mail or by post on CHASE CORPORATION organised or related events.
- We may send you requested product information and promotional material.
- We may use your Personal Data for marketing purposes and market research.
- We may use your Personal Data internally to help us improve our products and services and to help resolve any problems.
If you do not wish to receive information from us and want to be removed from our standard mailing list, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anonymous data collected through this Website
In addition to the information we collect as described above, we use technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our Website. For example, we use technology to track which pages of our Website our visitors view. We also use technology to determine which Web browsers our visitors use. This technology does not identify you personally; it simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our Website.
Our Website contains hyperlinks to other pages on our Website. We use technology to track how often these links are used and which pages on our Website our visitors choose to view. Again this technology does not identify you personally – it simply enables us to compile statistics about the use of these hyperlinks.
We use this anonymous data to improve the content and functionality of this Website and our e-mail updates, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.
We automatically collect your IP address when you visit the Website because our server needs to recognise it. We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Website. An IP address is a numeric code that identifies your computer on a network, or in this case, the Internet. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information, such as determining how many of our visitors are from outside of the USA. We do not identify users in this type of research.
Disclosure of your Personal Data
We do not share, sell or distribute your Personal Data with unrelated third parties, except under these limited circumstances:-
- Personal Data may be transferred to third parties who act for or on behalf of CHASE CORPORATION, or in connection with the business of CHASE CORPORATION for further processing in accordance with the purposes for which the data was originally collected or for purposes to which you have subsequently consented.
- We may share or transfer the information in our databases to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, to protect your vital interests, to protect the security or integrity of our databases or this Website, to take precautions against legal liability, or in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganisation, dissolution or similar event.
- Where appropriate, before disclosing Personal Data to a third party, we contractually require the third party to take reasonable precautions to protect that data.
Data Integrity and Security
We strive to maintain the reliability, accuracy, completeness and currency of Personal Data in our databases and to protect the privacy and security of our databases. We keep your Personal Data only for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or to comply with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or document retention requirements.
Our servers and our databases are protected by industry standard security technology, such as password protection. The employees who have access to Personal Data will act in accordance with our security protocols and strict standards of confidentiality. Although we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorised disclosure, alteration or destruction of data, we try to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.
Data Access and Corrections
Upon receipt of your written request and enough information to permit us to identify your Personal Data, we will disclose to you the Personal Data we hold about you. We will also correct, amend or delete any Personal Data that is inaccurate and notify any third party recipients of the necessary changes.
We do not charge for complying with a correction request, however, for all other requests, we may charge a small fee to cover our costs. Requests to delete Personal Data are subject to any applicable legal and ethical reporting or document retention obligations imposed on CHASE CORPORATION.
We do not knowingly collect Personal Data from users under the age of 18. If you are a child or minor, please do not give us any Personal Data. If you have reason to believe that a child has provided us with their Personal Data, please contact us at the address given below and we will endeavour to delete that information from our databases.
Links to other websites
Transfer of Data Abroad
CHASE CORPORATION has facilities and databases in different countries. We may, from time to time, transfer your Personal Data to one of our databases in another country. If the level of privacy protection in a country does not comply with recognised international standards, we will ensure that data transferred to our databases in that country are adequately protected and that the transfer of data to third parties in such countries is made pursuant to a contract or other measures providing adequate protection.
Of course, the Internet is made up of a large number of international connections. If you are visiting this Website from a country other than the country in which our server is located (currently, the USA), the various communications will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries. By visiting this Website and communicating electronically with us, you consent to these transfers.
