Phadia thanks you for visiting its Website.
Because we are committed to respecting the privacy of our Website visitors, this Website
to our site, how we may use it, and how we will protect the information which you may opt to provide.
This statement explains the efforts to balance our business interests in collecting and using
the information we receive from you with your need for appropriate protection and management of
any personally identifiable information that you share with us.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information includes your name, address, phone number, e-mail address or
any other information which might reasonably be used to identify you individually.
Phadia collects personally identifiable information from Website visitors only when it
is voluntarily provided.
Phadia will not otherwise collect this information from you on our Website.
At those portions of our Website where we provide you with the option to input personally identifiable
information, we notify you of the uses we intend to make of that information in any given instance.
When Phadia receives personally identifiable information, we may use it for reasonable
business purposes, just as non-Internet businesses do.
For example, we may use this information to contact you, via e-mail or regular mail, to provide you
with information we believe may be of interest.
It might also be used for compiling data and analyses to understand and serve our customers' needs.
Data is also compiled to evaluate the use and utility of the services we provide on-line.
Your information may be transferred for processing and use to Phadia facilities in other
countries and regions of the world.
Personally identifiable information will not be sold, rented or exchanged outside of Phadia
unless the user is first notified and expressly consents to such transfer.
Some Phadia Websites may also collect information
from you that is not personally identifiable.
For example, we might track information about the date and time visitors access our site,
the type of web browser they used, and the Website from which they connected to our site.
Our Websites collect this information by depositing certain bits of information called "cookies"
in a visitor's computer. This technology does not collect an individual visitor's personally
identifiable information. Rather, this information is collected in an aggregate form. The cookies
can tell us how and when pages in a Website were visited and by how many people. This aggregate
information will enable us to improve our Websites to serve and inform you better. It also may
allow you to shortcut access to points of interest on our Website when you reenter our system.
Attaching this device to your system has no effect on how it performs.
Links To Other Sites
As a resource to our visitors, Phadia may provide
links to other Websites.
We try to carefully choose Websites, which we believe are useful and meet our high
standards for the accuracy and utility of information.
However, because Website design and content can change so quickly, we cannot guarantee
the standards of every Website to which we link.
Likewise, we are not responsible for the content of any non-Phadia site.
We also cannot guarantee the privacy policies of these other sites and suggest you check
the privacy policies of those sites directly.
If you wish to stop receiving any e-mails or other consumer communications
from Phadia which may be sent to you in the future based on your request for this information,
or if you have submitted personally identifiable information through a Phadia Website and
would like to have that information deleted from our records, please notify us via E-mail.
Phadia will make every effort to maintain the accuracy
and confidentiality of any personal information you supply to us. If you wish to make additions
or other corrections to the information that you have sent in, please transmit it to us via the
"Contact Us form on the this site.
All information transmitted to this Phadia website is secure
to the extent possible using existing technology.
Unauthorized third parties should not be able to access it during transmission.
We will store the information that you share with us securely and will take appropriate steps to protect
it from unauthorized access or disclosure.
While no security steps can offer 100 percent protection, we utilize state-of-the-art technology
and systems to prevent unauthorized access to the information we hold.
We will limit access to this information to those Phadia personnel with a need to know.
We educate our staff about their duty to protect your privacy, and provide training regarding the
policy described herein.
Phadia does not intentionally collect or retain personally identifiable
information about children who are younger than 13 years of age.
If your child may have submitted information to us without indicating their actual age, and you would
like it removed, please advise us through E-mail, and we will delete it immediately.
Please check the privacy page periodically to review any changes that may have been made.
Thank you for visiting the Phadia Website.
We value your interest and ideas. If you have any comments or concerns regarding the use
of information provided to Phadia via an Internet site, please contact us via E-mail or mail.
