PRIVACY POLICY

 

Your right to privacy while using the World Wide Web is very important to Fluid Control Research Institute. (“FCRI”). FCRI respects your right to control how much information you provide about yourself. The following Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes how we collect, protect and use information we receive from visitors to our web site (this “Site”). This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected through this Site and not to information collected offline

       
  •  What Personally Identifiable Information Is Collected
  • We do not collect personally identifiable information on our Site unless you voluntarily provide information about yourself via an electronic mail message or by filling out one of our online forms. By “personal information,” we mean data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address or telephone number. For example, if you send us an email, we may use the information you provide to follow up via telephone or email. The information you provide will be kept confidential and will be used only to support your continued relationship with FCRI.

    No software or hardware techniques are employed to capture a visitor’s email address or other personally identifiable information. FCRI does monitor individual traffic patterns on our Site, but we do not use “cookies” or invisible images to track how you use our Site. These statistics indicate the total number of hits, the total number of page hits, the number of kilobytes transferred from our Site, and the IP address of the visitor. If we decide to avail ourselves of this information to analyze Site traffic, we will only be able to measure the number of visitors to our Site and the addresses of the web sites from which our visitors come. Email addresses and other personally identifiable information are not available to us.

     
  •   The Information You Provide Is Used  
  • Should you send us your comments or questions via email to any email address provided on our Site, we will only share your communications with our employees or agents capable of addressing your questions and concerns. We will retain your communication until we have used commercially reasonable efforts to provide you with a response, and then we will either discard it or, in some cases, archive it. If you are applying for a position with FCRI and submit an application through this Site, we will archive your resume for future consideration. We will only disclose personal information to third parties if we are required to do so by law or believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights and property; (c) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Site; or (d) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public. We do not sell, rent or otherwise disclose our mailing lists or other personally identifiable information you may provide to a third party without your consent.

     
  • Security of Information Sent to Us
  • Please note that, unless we expressly advise you otherwise, the email functionality on our Site does not provide a means for completely secure and private communications between us. Like all unencrypted Internet email communications, your email may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use email to communicate information to us that you consider to be confidential. While we strive to protect your personal information, FCRI cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will use our commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our internal systems. Depending on the nature of the inquiry, your communication may be discarded or archived. If you wish, you may contact us instead via telephone at the numbers provided throughout our Site.

     
  • Disclosure of Customer Information Through Business Transfer  
  • As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses, and in so doing, acquire customer information. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. Similarly, in the unlikely event that a portion or substantially all of FCRI assets are sold or transferred to a third party, the information you have voluntarily provided to us, including your email address, would likely be one of the transferred business assets.

     
  • Privacy Policies of Web Sites Not Under Our Control
  • For your convenience, this Site may provide links to various web sites that we do not control. When you click on one of these links, you will be transferred out of our Site and connected to the web site of the organization or company that you selected. We are not responsible for the nature, quality or accuracy of the content or opinions expressed in such web sites, and such web sites are not investigated, monitored or checked for quality, accuracy or completeness by us. Inclusion of any linked web site on the Site does not imply or express an approval or endorsement of the linked web site by us, or of any of the content, opinions, products or services provided on these web sites. Even if an affiliation exists between our Site and a third-party web site, we exercise no control over linked sites. Each of these linked sites maintains its own independent privacy and data collection policies and procedures. If you visit a web site that is linked from our Site, and whenever interacting with any web site, we encourage you to consult that web site’s privacy policy before providing any personal information.

     
  •   Access and Correction

You may also change the status of whether you wish to receive FCRI alerts, newsletters and communications at anytime.
