The following policy is applicable to Real Industry (“Real Industry”) information collecting, use and disclosure practices for the Real Industry web site. Your use of this site tells us you have read and accept the practices outlined in this policy. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Real Industry does not own or control or to people it does not employ or manage.
Real Industry’s policy regarding use of your individual identifying information supplied to us or collected via your visit to our web site covers these areas:
Information Collection and Use
Real Industry is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways that vary from what is disclosed in this statement. Real Industry collects information from our users at several different points on our Web site. This may include traffic data including user’s IP address, domain server, type of computer, and type of Web browser. This is anonymous information that does not personally identify a user but is helpful for marketing purposes or for improving a user’s experience on the site. Real Industry also uses “cookies” to customize content specific to user’s interests.
Personal information, such as a user’s name, address, company, company function, contact information and range of paid search spend may be gathered from you on a voluntary basis. Users need not submit this information to use the site.
Real Industry uses user and client information collected to send users and clients information about our products and services or promotional material from some of our partners, or to contact users or clients when necessary. Real Industry also uses user and client information to provide a better experience on the Web site and to improve our client services.
As we continue to develop our business, we may sell certain of our assets. In such transactions, visitor information likely will be one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Real Industry, or substantially all of its assets is acquired, our visitor information may be an asset that is reviewed and transferred. Such a transaction will be disclosed per our “Notification of Changes” guidelines below.
In general, when you visit our Web site and access information, you remain anonymous. Some areas of our Web site may require registration to access, although typically all that is required is your e-mail address and some basic information about you, such as name, company name and job function.
We may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. Unless otherwise indicated, this information is not shared with anyone outside of Real Industry and/or its designated contractors. When shared with contractors, usage is for the purpose of analyzing user trends and demographics. No IP addresses will be shared with any third party other than for such research and reporting services for Real Industry’s internal use.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Real Industry may partner with third party contractors to help process orders and provide other services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. We may share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our partners and clients. This information does not identify individual users.
We reserve the right to disclose personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us.
This web site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Real Industry is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.
