Website Privacy

Online identifiers such as internet protocol addresses, cookie identifiers or other identifiers can be used to gather information about natural persons, as mentioned in the EU General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR. This may in some cases leave traces which, when combined with unique identifiers and other information received, may be used to create profiles of the natural persons and identify them.

Not all cookies can be uses to identify users, but the majority will be subjet to the GDPR.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Asetek collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Asetek’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Asetek’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Asetek may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Asetek also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Asetek does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

 

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Asetek’s websites choose to interact with Asetek in ways that require Asetek to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Asetek gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Asetek does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

 

Aggregated Statistics

Asetek discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Asetek’s behalf or to provide services available at Asetek’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Asetek’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Asetek will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Asetek discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Asetek believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Asetek, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Asetek website and have supplied your email address, Asetek may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Asetek and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Asetek takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
