ThyssenKrupp Access is committed to protecting the online privacy of visitors to its website. We believe that greater protection of personal privacy on the web will not only protect consumers, but also increase consumer confidence and ultimately their participation in online activities. We intend to give you as much control as possible over your personal information.
The purpose of our policy is to inform you about the types of information we gather about you when you visit our site, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, the information.
Personal Information Which We Collect
We may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information, including your e-mail address, postal address, home or work telephone number, credit card number (only if you choose to purchase a product online), for such purposes as correspondence, making a purchase, or participating in online contests, surveys, or games. If you choose to give us personal information via the Internet that we or our business partners may need-to correspond with you, to process an order or to provide you with a subscription, for example-then it is our intent to let you know how we will use such information. Like many other commercial sites, our site may utilize a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how our site is used.
We may require you to supply us with personal information (demographic information such as age, income, education, population data, zip codes) during a "registration" process online prior to using certain features of our site. We use this general information in statistical form to understand our site's demographics, such as percentage of male and female users, geographic location, age ranges, or a combination of these or other demographics. As detailed below, we will not share specific information about you to advertisers or third parties without your consent.
Use of User Information
We may perform statistical analyses of aggregate (group) user behavior. This allows us to measure relative consumer interest in the various areas of our websites for product development purposes. Any information we collect is used for our own internal purposes to improve the content of the website, to enhance users' experiences when visiting our site, to customize the content and/or layout of our pages, and to provide the services required by an individual user. We do not use personal identifying information for any reason that is not disclosed either in this Policy or at the time the information is requested. Aside from an automatic reply to an e-mail received by us, it is our intent not to e-mail to you unless you request a particular service, or consent to being contacted by e-mail. There may be instances where you will have the opportunity to subscribe to an e-mail list that will send information about the site or our advertisers to your e-mail address, but after an initial mailing gauging your interest this will be continued only with your permission and consent.

We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time, and will post any changes to this Policy as soon as they go into effect.
Security of Information
We seek to ensure the security of personal information submitted by our users. When collecting credit card information for online purchases, we offer secured-server transactions that encrypt your information in transit to thwart someone from intercepting it and misusing it. When we collect other information from our users, it is stored in an area to which the general public does not have access.
At times while assessing our site, a user may be given a choice of "opting-out" of certain uses of his or her information. We will provide this choice where appropriate.
Permission to Use Materials
The right to download and store or output the materials in our site is granted for the user's personal use only, and materials may not be reproduced in any edited form. Any other reproduction, transmission, performance, display or editing of these materials by any means mechanical or electronic without the express written permission of ThyssenKrupp Access is strictly prohibited. Users wishing to obtain permission to reprint or reproduce any materials appearing on this site may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
