Privacy policy

Last Updated: November 9, 2016

thyssenkrupp Elevator (Canada) Limited ("tke" or "We'') knows that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, an obligation we take seriously. tke has created this privacy policy (ìPrivacy Policyî) in order to demonstrate our commitment to you and for you to understand the practices and conduct of tke as it applies to information collected about our customers and visitors.

By accessing the tke website at www.thyssenkruppelevator.ca, including all related pages ("Site") and/or services and/or products provided on the Site or any emails generated from or through the Site (collectively, the "Service"), you are accepting the Privacy Policy.

Information Gathered

The Site gathers information such as what kind of browser visitors are on, what operating system they are using, their IP address, cookie information, time stamp (time page accessed as well as time spent per web page) and their clickstream information (for example, which pages they have viewed and how long they have been there). Note that information is only gathered while the visitor is on the Site. tke monitors how a visitor arrives at the Site, but cannot and will not gather information about other third party sites the user has visited. tke automatically receives and records such information on our server logs from your browser.

When you visit the Site, we collect information, including Personally Identifiable Information that you provide. ìPersonally Identifiable Informationî means any information that identifies you personally, including, without limitation, your name, e-mail address, password, login ID and other contact information that you voluntarily submit to us. Visitors of the Site can also choose not to enter any of their Personally Identifiable Information.

In certain sections of the Site, tke may invite you to contact us to pose questions, request information, enter promotions or contests offered by tke, or complete a registration form. We may ask for Personally Identifiable Information to be entered as a means of registration before accessing a certain part of the Site.

Usage of Personally Identifiable Information

tke uses your Personally Identifiable Information in order to provide a more personal and efficient experience on the Site, to provide you with the products and services you requested or with information, offers or promotions that we think may interest you, to save you time and better respond to your needs, to improve the content and general administration of the Site and our services, and to provide you with notices containing updates about tke and its services.

The Site may track information that will be maintained, used and disclosed in aggregate form only and which will not contain your Personally Identifiable Information e.g., the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, browser type, External Web Sites (as defined below) linked to, and IP addresses. tke may analyze this data for trends and statistics in the aggregate, and we may use such aggregate information to administer the Site, track usersí movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information

tke may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information without prior notice to you: (a) if we believe we are required to do so by law, court order, subpoena from a court with proper jurisdiction, regulation or other government authority or otherwise in cooperation with an ongoing investigation by a governmental authority or agency. Only information requested or described is disclosed as directed pursuant to the subpoena or court order. Subject to its legal obligations, tke will notify customers of the information request as allowed by the subpoena or court order. tke will not sell your Personally Identifiable Information to any company, organization, or third party. We do not share, sell, rent or trade Personally Identifiable Information with third parties for their promotional purposes. tke utilizes great care in keeping customer information secure and private.

Cookies

tke employs third-party cookies in order for its server to recognize a return visitor as a unique user. Cookies are small text files placed in the 'Cookies' folder on a visitor's hard disk and allow tke to remember the visitor. The cookies placed by the tke server are readable only by tke, and cookies cannot access, read or modify any other data on a computer. All web-browsers offer the option to refuse any cookie. If a visitor refuses the tke cookie, tke does not gather any information on that visitor, but doing so will require you to re-enter certain information at each visit, or prevent us from customizing the site's features according to your preferences. You may also delete a cookie manually from your hard drive. Cookies themselves do not contain any personal information. We do link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site.
