INFORMATION PASLODE COLLECTS FROM YOU AND HOW IT IS USED

Your Consent

By using this Website or providing personal information to Paslode, you are consenting to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy, do not use the Paslode Website or contact Paslode pursuant to Section 2 below.

Active Information Collection

Like many other websites, Paslode actively collects information from our users of the Paslode Website users both by asking specific questions on this Website and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc.). When you visit this Website, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. Paslode uses this information for the purposes for which you provide it. For example, if you provide your resume to Paslode for purposes of obtaining employment, the resume will be used for activities related to your potential employment.

Passive Information Collection

Some of the information Paslode collects from users depends on the settings on your web browser. Please check your web browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends to websites you visit or how to change your browser settings. In addition to the information sent by your web browser, as you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection.

Like most website operators, Paslode tracks IP addresses, uses session, persistent and flash cookies and may use other successor tracker technology, and assign Internet tags. Our system also automatically gathers information about the areas you visit on this Website and collects operational information about the technology you use, such as your browser, type of computer, operating systems, Internet service providers and the domain name of the website from which you linked to the Paslode Website.

We reserve the right to use electronic images known as web beacons, also referred to as single-pixel gifs, and any other successor technology, that permit us to count users who have visited certain Website pages and for other related statistics (e.g., recording the popularity of certain Website content and verifying system and server integrity).

Paslode passively collects information to understand which areas of this Website are most popular, which areas may require improvement, and what technologies are being used by our visitors. This information helps us to update and improve this Website. Paslode also uses this information for information system and data security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches and to provide you with a safe online environment.

Limitations on the Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

To the extent required by applicable law, whenever Paslode collects personal information on this Website, Paslode will:

  • provide timely and appropriate notice to you about its data practices;
  • collect, use, disclose and transfer your personal information only with your consent, which may be express or implied, depending on the sensitivity of the personal information, legal requirements, and other factors;
  • collect your personal information only for specific, limited purposes. The information we collect will be relevant, adequate and not excessive for the purposes for which it is collected;
  • process your personal information in a manner consistent with the purposes for which it was originally collected or to which you have subsequently consented;
  • take commercially reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and, where necessary, kept up to date;
  • not use your personal information for direct marketing purposes without giving you an opportunity to “opt-out”; and
  • take appropriate measures, by contract or otherwise, to provide adequate protection for personal information that is disclosed to a third party or transferred to another country, including transfers within Paslode.

We may disclose personally identifiable information you provide via this Website to third parties, but only:

to contractors who support our business, in which case we will require such third parties to agree to use the information for the same purposes;

to respond to law enforcement requests, where required by applicable laws, court order or governmental regulations;

in the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, dissolution, reorganization, assignment or other transfer of Paslode’s business to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer to agree to treat the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and use it for the same purpose; or

in situations involving threats of physical safety of any person.

We do not otherwise distribute to third parties your personally identifiable information. However, we will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.

CHOICES YOU HAVE ABOUT HOW PASLODE USES YOUR INFORMATION
