Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes the way Meyer Burger collects, holds and uses information about individuals. By using the Meyer Burger website, you agree to the collection and the usage of information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. You acknowledge the fact that Meyer Burger may update this Private Policy at its own discretion from time to time by making changes, modifications, adjustments and deletions, without any prior notification. The following statements will explain how Meyer Burger treats any data about you that you voluntarily submit in connection with the use of the Meyer Burger website.

Privacy

The term “personal data” as used in this Privacy Policy refers to information such as your name, job responsibilities, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone and fax number that can be used to identify you. In general, Meyer Burger will not process your personal data without your consent.  However, we reserve the right, in exceptional circumstances to conduct additional processing to the extent permitted or required by law, or in support of any legal investigation.

Use of personal data

Most of our web services do not require any registration, allowing you to visit our website without telling us who you are. However, some services may require registration (for example the registration to receive our media releases). If you register for it, we may ask you to complete certain fields (some of which are required and others might be optional), or to enter a user name and password. In these situations, if you choose to withhold any personal data requested by us, it may not be possible for us to respond to your query.

We process personal data for the purposes which we inform you about when we ask you for information. For example, we may collect and use personal data to provide you with product or information services. We keep your data in accordance with any applicable legal reporting or documentation retention requirements.

This site uses Google Analytics, an internet site analysis service supplied by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies which are text files placed on your computer to help the internet site to analyse the use made of the site by its users. The data generated by the cookies concerning your use of the site (including your IP address) will be forwarded to, and stored by, Google on servers located in the United States. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the site, compile reports on site activity for its publisher and provide other services relating to the activity of the site and the use of the internet. Google may release these data to third parties if there is a legal obligation to do so or when the third parties process these data for the account of Google including, in particular, the publisher of this site. Google will not cross-reference your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may deactivate the use of cookies by selecting appropriate parameters on your navigator. However, deactivation of this kind might prevent the use of certain functions of this site. By using this internet site you specifically consent to the processing of your personal data by Google under the conditions and for the purposes described above.


Non-Disclosure of information 

We will not sell, share, or otherwise distribute your personal data to third parties except as provided in this Privacy Policy. Personal data may occasionally be transferred to third parties who act for or on behalf of Meyer Burger, for further processing in accordance with the purpose for which the data was originally collected. These third parties have agreed with Meyer Burger to use personal data only for the agreed upon purpose, and will not sell your personal information to other third parties, and will not disclose it to third parties except as may be required by law. Where such disclosure of personal data to a third party occurs, we will endeavour to ensure that the processing is performed in accordance with the purposes and within the limits under which the data were originally collected.

Personal data may be disclosed to a third party, if we are required to do so by applicable law, court order or governmental regulation, or if such disclosure otherwise is necessary in supporting any legal or criminal investigation.

Anonymous data collection

We may collect and process anonymous analysis about your visit to this website, such as pages you visit and the kind of searches you perform. We use those analyses to improve the contents of our website and to compile statistics about the utilisation of our website for internal purposes.
