Porter-Cable values its relationship with visitors and customers and uses commercially available technology to safeguard any personal information collected through the Sites. Nevertheless, the internet is an open medium and no data transmission through the internet is completely secure. You transmit Your personal information at Your own risk. Porter-Cable does not guaranty or warranty the security of information You transmit. Once received, Your personal information is stored in the United States. Porter-Cable takes various precautions to safeguard Your personal information against loss, theft and misuse as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. For example, the Sites use Secure Sockets layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where sensitive personal information is collected. It is Your responsibility to preserve the confidentiality of and not share Your user ID and password. You are responsible for the actions of each individual to whom You have given access through Your user ID and password and/or for those who obtain access as a result of Your failure to properly secure Your user ID and password.
Information Collected: In general, You may visit the Sites without telling Porter-Cable who You are or revealing personal information about Yourself. Porter-Cable, its business partners and other companies providing services to or on behalf of Porter-Cable (such as, for example, companies assisting with the operation or features of the Sites, advertising and promotional campaigns, surveys, contests and the like) may use various technologies (such as cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, click-through URL links) to collect non-personally identifiable information discernable as a result of Your visit. This may include, without limitation, Your IP address, web pages requested or viewed, date, time and domain type, demographic information and responses to surveys, promotions and advertisements. Information gleaned from Your browser is automatically received and recorded on server logs. As technology evolves, information may be gathered through other means as well. You may set Your browser either to notify You when You receive a cookie or to refuse to accept cookies. However, if You do so You may not be able to participate in certain of the Sites’ features.
Information that personally identifies You, such as Your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number as well as demographic data specific to You may also be collected from a variety of sources. You may provide personally identifiable information directly, it may be gleaned through the Sites or collected from other sources. For example, when You sign up to receive Porter-Cable product, event and other information, register Your Porter-Cable product through the Sites or set up an account on the Sites, You create a personal profile – providing Your name, telephone number, email address and in some cases Your mailing address or sensitive information such as credit card information – and choose a password for security. The Sites save Your information so that the next time You place an order or register a product, You only need to enter Your unique ID and password. You cannot communicate with Porter-Cable through various service or customer support links, telephone numbers on the Sites or via e-mail without providing personally identifiable information. If You contact Porter-Cable or its service providers, a record of that session or correspondence will be maintained. Personally identifiable information is collected and stored when You register product warranties, order parts, check repair status, become a member of the Sites, participate in owner’s clubs, public forums and other blogs, chat rooms, news groups or bulletin boards, request literature and/or product information. If You use a bulletin board, chat room or other interactive public areas of any of the Sites, any information You share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information You submit to one of these forums can be read, collected or used by other individuals to send You unsolicited messages. Porter-Cable is not responsible for personally identifiable information You choose to submit in these forums. If You do choose to make otherwise non-public information available by enabling certain user features, Porter-Cable will collect that information from Your interaction and the information will become publicly available.
Many companies within the Black & Decker family manufacture and sell consumer and commercial products. Unless not permitted by law, all companies within the Black & Decker family, including its world-wide affiliates, share information collected through the Sites and may contact You directly. Porter-Cable may also share Your information with businesses that offer products that it believes may be of interest to You as well as those providing services to Porter-Cable.
