This statement discloses the online privacy practices for the Ansell Limited website located at http://www.ansell.com/ ("Website") and describes our online information collection, use and storage practices of this Website. This notice applies only to information we collect online at this Website, and not to any other information collection we may conduct whether online at one of the other Ansell websites, through electronic mail, or offline. Please be sure to read this notice before using this Website or submitting information to us. Our privacy practices may change from time to time, so please check this area periodically for corresponding updates to this notice.
WHAT INFORMATION ANSELL COLLECTS FROM YOU, HOW IT COLLECTS IT, AND WHY
Ansell Limited (“Ansell”) only collects personal information that is necessary for its business-related functions and activities.
As with most websites, Ansell tracks information in two ways. There is voluntary information that we request, and information that we track passively.
We actively solicit information from you during registration for promotional campaigns and surveys, at the "contact us" form and other electronic forms, at the request form for newsletter subscription, by requests for us to provide services or information or take actions, any messages or comments you submit via this Website and by inviting you to send us electronic mail messages. The amount and type of information we collect varies from area to area, and includes name, e-mail address, street address, and telephone number, as well as certain demographic data and business information that will help us provide you with better information and products. We will not collect personal information in an unfair, unlawful or unreasonably intrusive manner.
In order to properly maintain this Website, we (like all sites on the Internet) passively track navigational information, for example through use of session cookies. This information tells us about visitors to the Website but not the identity of those visitors,
Ansell generally does not require you to provide personally identifiable information to visit and use this Website; however, in order to participate in some activities such as our online promotions or to access specific sections of our web sites, you must provide us with the information requested. We may ask during those processes for additional information not required to complete your request. Optional information will be noted at the specific area. If you decide not to provide us with the required information, we may be unable to process your request or provide the full range of services available through this Website. For example, if you do not provide us with your contact information when registering for an online promotion, we will be unable to notify you of subsequent promotional information.
HOW ANSELL USES YOUR INFORMATION
We use the information you provide to respond to your request (enter you in or notify you about a promotional campaign, for example), to notify you about new features, products or services, to customize your experience on this Website, to improve our features, products and services, to send you surveys or questionnaires, and for other business purposes. In order to provide you with this Website, and with our products and services, we may share your information with our agents or partners. For example, when hosting promotions we often work with promotion companies with whom we share your information. These companies collect your information on our behalf, share the information with us, and also retain that information for their own purposes. In addition to sharing your information with our partners and agents, we may also share your information with certain select vendors whose products or services we believe you may find of interest. We may also provide aggregated information about our users to third parties. If you do not want us to share your personally identifiable information with unrelated third parties, you may notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use the information we track during your visit (such as IP addresses and browser type) to administer this Website, to provide you with the product or service you requested, as well as to create better information, products and services by analyzing trends. We may also share this information with third-party software and service providers who assist us in performing web analytics. For example, we use this information to determine which areas of this Website are more popular, to determine fluctuation of visitor numbers from week to week, to diagnose problems with our server, and to improve your web experience by determining the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to this Website.
WHAT CHOICES YOU HAVE ABOUT THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE PROVIDED TO ANSELL
We strive to provide you with as many choices and as much control as possible regarding the personal information you have provided to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
You may send us an e-mail message at email@example.com, to request access to, to correct, or to delete any personal information that you have provided us. To protect your privacy, we will only respond to e-mail messages sent from the e-mail account you originally provided to us. Should you elect to have your information deleted, we will also remove your information from our active databases.
You may "opt-out" of having your information used for purposes not directly related to those for which you provided it to us by sending an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from us may also opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to unsubscribe in the subject line in the e-mail they receive, or by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
If you do not wish for us to share your personal information with unaffiliated or non-agent third parties, you may send us a notice to this effect at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also opt out of receipt of marketing messages from Ansell by sending a message to that effect to the same address, namely email@example.com.
You should review this privacy notice carefully, because if you do not agree with our practices, your ultimate choice is not to use this Website. Remember, by using any part of this Website, you accept and agree to our privacy practices. If we update this privacy notice, your continued use of this Website (following the posting of the revised notice) means that you accept and agree to the terms of the revised privacy notice.
This Website may, from time to time, contain links to other web sites and those third party web sites may collect personal information about you. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other businesses or the content of web sites that are linked to our Website. Ansell encourages users to be aware when they leave the site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.
HOW ANSELL PROTECTS YOUR INFORMATION
Ansell takes its responsibility to protect your personal information seriously. In addition to technical measures such as firewalls, we have also implemented procedural protection measures such as restricting physical access to your information in our offices, securing that information behind locked cages and training and disciplining employees who fail to follow our company's privacy policies. Once personal information held is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected it will be de-identified or destroyed securely.
Unfortunately, no data or transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 per cent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect user’s personal information, Ansell cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to it or from its online products or services, and users do so at their own risk. Once Ansell receives any of your personal information, Ansell will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
WHAT ANSELL DOES ABOUT CHILDREN ON THIS WEBSITE
This Website is not intended for, nor do we believe it is appealing to, children under the age of 13. Ansell does not knowingly solicit or collect information from children under the age of 13. If Ansell learns that it has been provided with information from someone under 13, Ansell will destroy that information. We encourage parents to take an active role in ensuring that their children do not send information about themselves anywhere on the Internet unknowingly, and suggest that they use software tools or online services to ensure a safe Internet experience for their children.
