Collection and Use of Personal Data
The term “personal data” includes any information that could be used to identify you, including your name, address, and email address. In general, we collect your personal data in order to administer the site and to update your contact information with Franklin Electric.
Franklin Electric may receive information about you from other sources, including third-party providers or federal, state, or international regulators. To the extent required by law, such information will be kept confidential. We may also collect aggregate data, not including any personal data, about visitors and users of this site and may disclose such aggregate data to our service providers, partners, or other third parties for marketing or promotional purposes.
Except as otherwise provided herein, Franklin Electric will treat the information you provide as confidential and will not share such information with any third party without your consent, except: to comply with applicable law, for example to comply with a search warrant, subpoena, or court order; to enforce any agreement we might have with you, or to protect our rights, property, or safety, or that of others; with our service providers or vendors, as needed to perform services or functions on our behalf, and who are contractually obligated to protect your personal data consistent with this Privacy Notice; or through any member directory that may be accessible through this site. Franklin Electric does not sell or rent the information collected through this site for any purpose.
In certain circumstances, Franklin Electric may disclose your personal data to other third parties for the direct marketing purposes of such third parties. You will be notified of these circumstances at the point of collection of your personal data.
We may provide you with an “opt in” or “opt-out” mechanism depending on where you are located. An “opt-in” mechanism will provide you the opportunity to positively indicate that you would like or do not object to our sending you such further communications and we will not send you any unless you have “opted-in”. An “opt-out” mechanism will provide you the opportunity to indicate that you do not want us to send you such further communications, and if you “opt-out” we will not send you any. Either way, opting-in or opting-out will be up to you and, in addition, if you do not want us to use your personal information for a particular purpose or disclose it to a third party, you may “opt out” at any time by contacting us as provided below.
We may also disclose your personal data to a third party as part of a sale or transfer of all or a portion of the assets of Franklin Electric. Any third party to whom Franklin Electric sells or transfers assets will have the right to continue to use your personal data in the manner described in this Privacy Notice.
To enhance your experience on this site, Franklin Electric may use “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 recognize you when you revisit and remember certain information about you. This can include which pages you have visited, choices you have made from menus, any specific information you have entered into forms and the time and date of your visit.
There are two main types of cookies:
- Session cookies: these are temporary cookies that expire at the end of a browser session; that is, when you leave the site. Session cookies allow the website to recognize you as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use the website most efficiently. For example, session cookies enable a website to remember that a user has placed items in an online shopping basket.
- Persistent cookies: in contrast to session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on your equipment between browsing sessions until expiration or deletion. They therefore enable the website to “recognize” you on your return, remember your preferences, and tailor services to you.
In addition to session cookies and persistent cookies, there may be other cookies which are set by websites which you have chosen to visit, such as this site, in order to provide us or third parties with information.
Cookies save you time as they help us to remember who you are and they help us to be more efficient. We can learn about what content is important to you and what is not. We can revise or remove web pages that are not of interest and focus our energies on content you want.
The cookies used on this site include:
.SFROLES-SmarterWidgetsPD910, /UserPreferenceLang, ASP.NET_SessionId, FedAuth1, SF-TokenID, ga: Google Analytics cookies used to gather information to improve our site.
