Collection and Use of Personal Information
Your privacy is important to Sevcon. From time to time we collect, retain and utilize Personal Information about you to operate our business and to make services and other opportunities available. The term "Personal Information" means personally identifiable information that Sevcon obtains about you, including your name, telephone number, physical address and email address. We recognize and respect your privacy concerns about this information. We obtain Personal Information in a variety of ways (for example, when you contact us directly by email, from your other transactions or experiences with Sevcon, or from other third parties). Also, when you visit this website, we collect information that might or might not identify you to measure the use of the website and to improve its content, as described below.
Like most websites, our website may gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream information. We may use this information to track user habits and improve the functionality of this website as a result of our observations.
Disclosure of Information
Except as indicated within this Policy, we will not sell, rent or transfer your Personal Information to or otherwise share your Personal Information with third parties. We may share or transfer your Personal Information as directed to do so by you. We may otherwise transfer Personal Information to third party vendors who act for us for further processing in accordance with the purposes for which the information was originally collected or for purposes to which you have subsequently consented. For example, sometimes a third party vendor may have access to your Personal Information in order to support our information technology or help obtain, compile and manage the information.
We also disclose Personal Information about you as required or permitted by law, including to comply with legal process (for example, we may disclose your information as necessary to comply with a civil, criminal or regulatory investigation).
We may, in our sole discretion, share or transfer your Personal Information to protect the security or integrity of our databases or this website, to protect our business or reputation, to take precautions against legal liability, in the event of a business transition (see below), for required institutional risk control, or for resolving disputes, inquiries or complaints with respect to your use of this website.
Furthermore, we may provide our partners and other third partners who might benefit from the information with aggregated information, i.e., compiled information that does not in itself identify you, for research and commercial purposes.
