2. What does this Policy apply to?
This Policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you or that you provide to us, will be processed and stored by us.
In addition, this Policy applies to all Web Sites owned and operated by us and our subsidiaries that post a direct link to this Policy (collectively the “Web Sites” or Sites”).
3. What information do we collect?
We collect personal data to enable you to order products or services, make requests, register for programs and enhance your experience on our Sites.
We may collect personal data such as your name, email address, contact and billing information, transaction and credit card information.
During in-person and/or on-line communications with us, we may ask you to provide information regarding your interests, demographics, experience with our products and contact preferences. In order to best serve you, we may correlate the information you provide to us through different communications and contact channels, such as data collected on-line may be combined with information provided off-line.
We are committed to keeping your personal data only as long as required to respond to your requests, provide you with the products and/or services you are interested in, or for the period necessary to fulfill our own legal obligations.
Like many other sites on the Internet, we may use standard web technologies that automatically gather certain statistics and technical information about traffic to our Sites. For example, we may use a “cookie,” which is a small text file stored on your computer, to help us know whether you have visited our site before and some of the actions you took. Through the use of log files or web logs, we may also record certain information about your visit to our Sites, including the type of web browser application you used, your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address (assigned by your Internet Service Provider), the date and time of your visit, and which pages you visited. This information allows us to assess overall Site activity, track interest in particular portions and features of our Sites, and troubleshoot technical problems. By default, the information collected does not automatically identify you personally or tell us who you are.
Through the settings of your web browser application, you can always disable or delete cookies, or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent to your computer. To do this, refer to your web browser’s documentation. Please note that if you choose to disable cookies, certain features on our Sites may not be available or may fail to work properly.
No personal information (such as name, email address, or phone number) or demographic information is required to use our Web Sites. However, you may choose to enter such information in order to fully utilize the features of our Sites.
Registration is required to use many of our Sites’ features. Other than your basic contact information, you can provide as much or as little information as you like. We will use the information you provide to tailor certain features of the Web Site to your needs. If you provide us with information about your instrumentation, processes, applications, business, or chromatography consumables, we might also use this to present you with more relevant and targeted marketing or recommendations.
5. Do we collect personal information from children under 13?
We recognize the importance of protecting children online and, to this end, is committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.
