PRIVACY POLICY

EFFECTIVE: MAY 25, 2018

UltraTech is a premier provider of environmental compliance products and the largest manufacturer of spill containment, stormwater management, facility protection, and construction compliance products in the world. Beyond external sales and marketing initiatives, UltraTech promotes its products and innovations via this UltraTech website, www.SpillContainment.com (the “Site”). This Site is operated by UltraTech International, Inc. (the “Company”, “we” or “us”) for users of the Site (“you”). This Privacy Policy sets forth our policy with respect to information that is collected from visitors to the Site. Under applicable law, UltraTech Inc. is the “data controller” of personal data collected through the Site.

BY USING THIS WEBSITE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND CONSENT TO THE DATA PRACTICES DESCRIBED IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT 

Personally Identifiable Information

When you interact with us through the Site, we collect personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number when you voluntarily provide such information to us. UltraTech also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, and interests.

Automated Information

Some information about your computer hardware and software is automatically collected by UltraTech as you utilize the Site but that is not personally identifiable. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring website addresses. This information is used by UltraTech for the operation of the Site, to maintain the quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the UltraTech website.

We also employ “cookies” and similar technologies to keep track of your local computer’s settings. Cookies are pieces of data that sites and services can set on your browser or device that can be read on future visits. In addition, we use technologies such as web beacons and single-pixel gifs to record log data such as open rates for emails sent by the system.

Third-Party Data Collection

We may use third-party website analytics tools such as Google Analytics on our website that employ cookies to collect certain information concerning your use of our Site. While this information is not personally identifiable, you can disable cookies by changing your browser settings. Further information about the procedure to follow in order to disable cookies can be found on your Internet browser provider's website via your help screen.

Advertising Data

You may see our products and services advertised in other applications or websites. After clicking on one of these advertisements, you will become a user of the Site. Advertising platforms may collect information for optimizing advertising campaigns outside of this website and our control. If you do not wish to receive personalized advertising that is delivered by third parties, you may be able to exercise that choice through opt-out programs that are administered by those third parties, including the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA).

Our website does not respond to “Do Not Track” (DNT) signals and operate as described in this Privacy Policy whether or not a DNT signal is received, as there is no consistent industry standard for compliance.

Public Information

If you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through any public message boards, social media services or similar, either operated by or affiliated with UltraTech or not, such information may be collected and used by others.

Demographic Information

In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve our customers and potential customers, we may conduct research on our customer demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information collected. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and we may share this aggregate data with our affiliates, agents and business partners. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our products and services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes. The aggregate data described in this paragraph are not personally identifiable.

WHERE INFORMATION IS PROCESSED

The Company is based in the United States. No matter where you are located and by using the Site, you consent to the processing and transferring of your information in and to the U.S. and other countries. The laws of the U.S. and other countries governing data collection and use may not be as comprehensive or protective as the laws of the country where you live.

OUR LEGAL BASIS FOR HANDLING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

The laws in some jurisdictions require companies to tell you about the legal ground they rely on to use or disclose your personal data. To the extent those laws apply, our legal grounds are as follows: 

  • To provide requested information to you: Much of our processing of personal data is to provide information regarding our products and services, which you request through various points of interaction on our website (e.g., you contact us via one of our online forms).
  • Legitimate interests: In many cases, we handle personal data on the ground that it furthers our legitimate interests in ways that are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected individuals. This includes:
    • Providing a safe and enjoyable user experience;
    • Customer service;
    • Marketing, e.g. sending emails or other communications to let you know about new features;
    • Protecting our users, personnel, and property;
    • Analyzing and improving our business, e.g. collecting information about how you use our products and services to optimize the design and placement of certain features;
    • Processing job applications;
    • Managing legal issues.
  • Legal compliance: We need to use and disclose personal data in certain ways to comply with our legal obligations.
  • Consent: Where required by law, and in some other cases, we handle personal data on the basis of your implied or express consent.

 OUR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

The Company is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your information with certain third parties, as set forth below:

  • Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, bankruptcy, dissolution or similar event, your information may be part of the transferred assets.

  • Agents, Consultants, and Related Third Parties: Like many businesses, we sometimes hire other companies or individuals to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments.

  • Aggregated or Non-identifiable Data: We may also share aggregated or non-personally identifiable information with our partners or others for business purposes.

UNSOLICITED INFORMATION

You may provide us with ideas for new products or modifications to existing products, and other unsolicited submissions (collectively, “Unsolicited Information”).
