Privacy Policy

 

Michelman, Inc. ("Michelman") is committed to protecting the confidentiality and security of personal information that you choose to provide to us. While it is impossible to guarantee that such information is or will be completely safe from unauthorized access or use, the following policy is intended to inform you of the steps we take to protect the information you choose to provide to us. We recommend that you carefully review this policy before providing us with your personal information.

TRANSFER OF INFORMATION
Due to the limited information provided by users to Michelman, information you choose to provide to us over the internet is not encrypted.  No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be secure and data transmission is at your own risk. Further, Michelman cannot guarantee against, and will not be liable for, disclosure due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties.

COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
In general, you can visit www.michelman.com without providing any personal information. Michelman may collect personal information from you on our website to facilitate the delivery of services or the fulfillment of an order, to provide you information and samples you request, to give you a customized interactive experience, and to help us develop and notify you about new products and services that meet your needs. The information we request may include personally identifiable information such as your name, billing and shipping address, telephone number or e-mail address. It is solely your choice whether or not you provide this personally identifiable information. However, should you choose not to provide the information, we may be unable to process an order, fulfill a service, or display certain content on our website.

Because Michelman considers the personally identifiable information we maintain to be confidential, our policy is to refrain from disclosing personally identifiable information gathered online to third parties unless release is required or permitted by law; the release is pertinent to judicial or government investigations or proceedings; or we have asked for and obtained your consent. In addition, Michelman may use third parties to fulfill orders or manage websites. In those instances, Michelman will provide these companies with the personal information they need to provide such services. Michelman will take commercially reasonable measures to require these companies to protect this personal information to the same standard Michelman does and to not use the information for any other purpose than to complete the transaction. Michelman may also disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary or appropriate to avoid violation of, or interference with, the terms of use of this website or our services, or with our proprietary rights, or the rights of third parties.

Michelman will not sell your personally identifiable information to third parties. However, If a Michelman brand, or some or all of its business or assets, is sold to another company, personal information provided to that brand or business may be transferred to the purchaser.

COLLECTION AND USE OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
Michelman tracks information about the visits to its website and in doing so may collect your IP address, browser type or information about your operating system. This non-personal information is not linked to your personally identifiable information. The aggregated, non-personal data collected may be used to analyze trends and customer interests as well as to administer the site, track your site movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Michelman may collect, use, transfer and disclose non-personal information for any purpose.

Michelman may also make use of a technology called a "cookie." A "cookie" is an element of data that a web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it.

STORAGE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Michelman will store information you provide, once received, in commercially reasonably secure operating environments that are not accessible by the public, housed in a secure datacenter. Michelman will store information you provide for the time necessary to respond to your request or otherwise in compliance with the law and with Michelman’s retention policies.

LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
Our website may contain "links" to other websites. We try to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy. However, we cannot be responsible for the content or privacy practices employed by other sites. Michelman does not control the privacy policies of other websites. For these reasons, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of these websites before disclosing any personal information to or through them.

CHILDREN
This site is not intended to be used by children, including children under the age of 13. Michelman does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under 13 years old through its web site. Michelman does not currently allow children under 13 to register or participate in contests or promotions on the site. However, if the parent or guardian of a child under 13 believes that the child has provided us with personally identifiable information, the parent or guardian of that child should contact us if they want this information deleted from our files. If Michelman obtains knowledge that it has personally identifiable information about a child under 13 in retrievable form in its files, we will delete that information from our existing files. In addition, anyone under 18 years old should seek their parent’s or guardian’s permission prior to using or disclosing any personal information on this site.

SAFE HARBOR PRIVACY PRINCIPLES
The U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Union share the goal of enhancing privacy protection for their citizens despite differences between privacy approaches taken by the European Union and the United States. The U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission have developed a “Safe Harbor” framework and a website to allow U.S. companies to bridge the differences between U.S. and European Union privacy policies. Michelman has self-certified compliance with the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles published by the U.S. Department of Commerce with respect to personal data that Michelman receives in the United States from the European Union.
