The C. F. Sauer Company and its affiliates (collectively referred to as “CFSauer”) respect your privacy. We have prepared this policy to give you notice of the information we collect and what we do with it. This notice applies only to the websites of CFSauer (collectively the “Sites”) and not to any other sites with which we link. We may change this policy from time to time, so you should review this policy for updates.
Information We Collect
We do not collect any personal information while you are simply browsing any of our Sites. If you decide to order products through any Site, then we will need certain information (name, address, phone number, etc.) to process the order. If you contact us directly, we may keep a copy of the email and your email address.
If you fill out an online employment application we will collect the information you provide on the application.
We also collect anonymous user information such as the date and time of your visit, your browser type, the search terms you use, and the links that you click through. This information is accumulated anonymously and is used to analyze trends and gather aggregated user information.
What Happens to Your Information?
Our purpose in collecting information from you is to help us provide you with better services, such as notifications about CFSauer special offers and CFSauer promotions, and to improve the ease of use and efficiency of our Sites. We will not use or disclose this information except as stated in this policy. We may use the information to contact you directly.
We may hire another company to provide certain services, and will only share the personal information they need to provide the services for which we contract. Such companies are required to maintain the confidentiality of any such information.
We will disclose personal information upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement operation or other legal requirements. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we believe to be unlawful.
Credit Card Information
Credit card numbers are only required when placing an order. We retain the information long enough to get an approval for the amount of the sale from your credit card issuer and then the credit card number is deleted. During the approval process we transmit only the information required to obtain the approval, and we work only through recognized banking and financial institutions. The final four digits of your credit card number may be retained with your order information to assist with inquiries about your order.
Cookies and Web Beacons
Links to Other Sites
Our Sites may contain links to other sites. These sites may send their own cookies to users. Since we do not control these sites we are not responsible or liable for the privacy practices or content of such sites.
If any of our companies go through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition or sale of assets, it is very likely that your personal information will be included as a transferred asset.
Children Under 13
Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to provide any personal information to us. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information or offline personal contact information from users under 13 years old, or knowingly use or share with third parties information from users under 13 years old. If you are a parent or guardian who believes we have information pertaining to a minor, please contact us we will take prompt action to remove that information from our files.
