What Information Does CSL Collect?

CSL Silicones collects two types of information: (1) "Communication Information," which is personally identifying information you voluntarily provide, such as contact information, emails or letters; and (2) "Visitor Information," which is information that is automatically collected as you visit and browse the Website (collectively, your "Information").

Communication Information

If you communicate directly with CSL Silicones by phone, email or postal mail, CSL Silicones may collect, store and use any information it collects for its own business purposes that we feel may benefit you. Your information will not be sold rented or given to any third parties.

CSL Silicones may use this "Communication Information" to respond to your requests, issues or inquiries or to improve the Website, services or product offerings.

Visitor Information

CSL Silicones’ Website server automatically records "Visitor Information," based on your activity on the Website, through the use of "IP addresses" (as described below) or "Cookies" (as described below) or other industry-standard techniques, such as domain names.

CSL Silicones may use Visitor Information, including user behavior, user experience, user equipment and the computing and Internet environment, to improve the performance of the Website.

An IP address is a number automatically assigned to a computer when a user uses the Internet and is often associated with the place from which the user enters the Internet such as the Internet service provider. Standing alone, an IP address is not necessarily personally identifiable.

Cookies are data that a website transmits to a computer's hard drive through the browser to enable the website to recognize the browser, record and store a user’s information and occasionally track the user’s viewing habits for statistical purposes. Cookies cannot read any other information on your hard drive. The Website uses Cookies to collect Visitor Information to deliver targeted content to you (such as comparison of products) and to potentially tailor and enhance your experience on the Website. If you do not wish to receive Cookies or want to be notified when they are placed, your browser may permit you to do so.
