Legal / Copyright
Wales Darby Inc. and its operating divisions, sales representatives and distributors (heretofore collectively referred to as “Wales Darby”) maintain and operate this and other web sites (collectively the “Wales Darby Sites”) and are sensitive to privacy issues on the Internet. Accordingly, Wales Darby believes that you should know our online information practices, the kinds of information we may collect and how we intend to use this information.
For each visitor to a Wales Darby Site, we automatically collect the visitor’s domain name and/or their IP address.
If you communicate with us by e-mail, we will collect your e-mail address, name, and other information you provide; otherwise, personally identifiable information is only collected on Wales Darby Sites if you voluntarily choose to provide it. Such personally identifiable information may include your name and/or that of your employer, address/location, telephone number and e-mail address. If we are requesting personally identifiable information, we will try to let you know how we will use the information at the time we collect it from you, but before you provide it to us.
The information collected may be aggregated to analyze what pages visitors access, the number of visits, average time spent on the site, etc. The aggregated information is utilized to improve the design and content of the Wales Darby Sites. Usually the personally identifiable information we collect is used to respond to the visitor’s inquiry, but in some instances, it may be used for market research or to provide you with information about our own or related goods or services that we believe support your business needs.
We may make this information available to our distributors, sales representatives or other business affiliates so that they may respond to a visitor’s inquiry or provide information about our own or related goods or services that we believe support your business needs. Alternatively, Wales Darby Sites may provide links to the web sites of our distributors, sales representatives or other business affiliates and, while we believe they have high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices they employ.
Wales Darby will not sell to third parties any personally identifiable information derived from a visitor’s visit to or use of an Wales Darby Site.
You should be aware that:
If we are requested to disclose personal information by law, court of law, or as requested by a governmental or law enforcement authority, we may do so.
We may pass your personal information or details of your use of the web site to other divisions, sales representatives and distributors within the Wales Darby group.
We may share information as necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activities, such as willful attacks on Wales Darby’s information technology systems, and as necessary to establish or preserve a legal claim or defense.
With respect to security: We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our site. We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site. We cannot, however, guarantee the security of any such information.
Protecting the privacy of the youth is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information on Wales Darby Sites from those we know are under 13 years of age.
