Use of Information
We gather certain types of customer information in an effort to improve the Website and to communicate with you about our products, services, promotions and contests. AkzoNobel may also use this information to have a sales representative contact you, make offers to you, help us develop and improve the Website and tailor the Website to your interests.
AkzoNobel collects two types of information about users: “Personal Information” (such as name, email address, mailing address, and phone number) and “Aggregate Information” (such as information about how many users log on to the Website on a daily basis).
Aggregate Information Collected Online
Aggregate Information is nonpersonally identifiable/anonymous information about you, such as age, gender, pages you access most frequently or search terms you enter. Aggregate Information is used in a collective manner, and no single person can be identified by that compiled information. For example, the number of people who viewed the Website during a specific time period is Aggregate Information that does not personally identify a specific user. Tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses is one method of collecting Aggregate Information about your activities online and information volunteered by you. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Web. The computers, which deliver the Web pages to you, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from the Website, our servers log your IP address.
Sharing Information Collected Online with Third Parties, Service Providers, Consultants and Affiliates
We may share Personal Information gathered online with our licensors, affiliates, service providers and consultants or for any internal business purpose. We may also disclose Personal Information if such action is required to enable AkzoNobel or any of our service providers or consultants to comply with any valid legal process, such as a subpoena, search warrant, statute or court order, or any valid administrative request from a law enforcement agency. We may also disclose Personal Information if AkzoNobel or any of our service providers or consultants believes that the Website has been used to commit unlawful acts or acts that may endanger the health or safety of another user or of the general public.
AkzoNobel may share Aggregate Information with affiliates, service providers and consultants for any internal business purpose and with third parties for their advertising and promotional purposes.
