Privacy Policy

Online Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. This notice explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used at our Website.

It is Adhesives Research policy to comply with all applicable privacy and data protection laws. This commitment reflects the value we place on earning and keeping the trust of our employees, customers, business partners and others who share their personal information with us.

If you do not consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Policy, do not use Adhesives Research Websites.

 

The Information We Collect

We do not collect personally identifiable information about you – such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc. – unless you choose to fill out contact information forms, found on many of the pages of the Website or to email us directly. We do automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our website–such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink).

 

How We Normally Use Information About You

We use non-personally identifiable information to analyze website usage (such as aggregated information on the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of our Website.

In the ordinary course, we use personally identifiable information you provide solely to respond to your inquiry.

Any data gathered will be shared, if appropriate, with any of the offices of Adhesives Research throughout the world, including the United States, Europe and Asia. Personal Information which users in the European Union provide to us may be transferred to other countries (including the United States), the data protection laws of which may differ from those of the European Union, and you expressly agree to such transfer.

We will not contact you about other matters, unless you specifically request it, nor will we share, rent, or sell your personally identifiable information outside Adhesives Research. It is possible, though unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency’s request.

Also, we cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web or that may be collectable in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to us.

 

Collection of Information by Third-Party Websites and Sponsors

Our Website contains links to other websites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other Websites’ privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

 

Cookies

A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk so that the website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

 

When you visit our website we send you a cookie. Cookies may be used in the following ways:

  • To enable the personalisation features on our Website (which give you the ability to recall recently viewed pages and see information which you have input on line).
  • To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use our Website and to help us improve the structure of our Website. We cannot identify you personally in this way.

Two types of cookies may be used on this Website, session cookies, which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the Website, and persistent cookies, which remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).

 

Disabling/Enabling Cookies

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our Website if cookies are disabled.

 

Our Commitment to Security

We employ security measures to prevent unauthorized access to information that we collect online. However, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.
