In all cases, however, the Personal Data gathered is limited to data necessary to the purposes described under section 4 herein.
For visitors and users of the Sites: in order to use certain functions and features of a Site, SAL requires that You provide certain Personal Data when visiting or using the respective Site. You are free to decide whether or not to provide all or part of Your Personal Data. However, if You choose not to provide all or part of Your Personal Data, the purposes as described in section 4 might not be achieved or not properly achieved, some areas and functions of the Sites may not function properly, and/or You may be refused access to certain pages on the Sites. In particular, you will not be authorized to purchase products or services via the Sites.
However, certain SAL products and services may be appropriate for use by children, and in that case children must seek consent from their parents prior to creating a SAL account. Teachers and school administrators may act in the place of parents and provide consent for the collection of Personal Data from children (schools should always ensure that they have received permission from parents to do so).
Personal Data is generally collected to carry out the business of SAL, such as improving SAL’ marketing and advertising efforts and better tailoring SAL products and services to customers’ needs.
SAL collects and uses Your Personal Data for the purpose of carrying out its business, in particular for the following purposes:
By providing Your e-mail address, you hereby expressly authorise, SAL and its affiliates to use it together with other relevant Personal Data to send You commercial or marketing communications.
SAL might also use Your email address for administrative or other non-marketing purposes.
SAL may also use third party vendors to measure and analyse the effectiveness of the Site, and in particular to:
In such cases, web beacons and cookies provided by such third party vendors may be used and stored. By transmitting the information generated by these beacons and cookies, the beacons’ / cookies’ settings ensure that IP addresses are anonymous before geo-localization and before storage. Our third party vendors will use this information for the evaluation of Your use of the Site, compiling reports on the Site activity for SAL to provide better services to You geared towards Your needs, and provide advertisements to You that are geared towards Your needs. They will not associate Your IP address with any other data they store.
When you browse the Sites, cookies are enabled by default and data may be read or stored locally on your device. SAL European Sites will notify You the first time You receive a cookie, and then You decide whether to accept it or refuse it. By continuing to use the Site in consideration of the above, you expressly authorize SAL to use such cookies.
You can also configure Your browser software to refuse all cookies (including cookies used for web analytics services); if You do so, however, some areas and features of the Site may not function properly and/or You may not access some parts or services of the Site.
All Personal Data that will have been collected will be stored for a limited duration that is relevant to the purpose of such collection and for so long as required by applicable law.
Unless SAL receives Your express authorization, SAL does not share any Personal Data with these third parties. However, SAL may provide them with Non-Personal Data.
SAL does not exercise any control over the content of third party Websites or the practices of these third parties in connection with the protection of Personal Data that they might collect and are thus not under the control of SAL. Consequently, SAL declines all liability for the content of third party websites or the practices of these third parties concerning the protection of Personal Data.
It is therefore Your responsibility to inform yourself as to these third parties' privacy policies.
You will have the opportunity to decide whether You authorize SAL to use Your Personal Data for a purpose differing from the purpose for which it was originally collected.
SAL will also disclose Personal Data to third parties if SAL determines that such disclosure is necessary for technical reasons (such as hosting services by a third party) or to protect SAL legal interests (such as in the event of acquisition or merger by a third company or total or partial liquidation of SAL).
Additionally, SAL may share Your Personal Data with a supplier assigned to You or in the territory where You are located. SAL may also share Your personal data with business partners when SAL and the business partner sponsor an event together or participate in a marketing promotion together and in which You engage.
Furthermore, SAL may share Your Personal Data with a third party who owns content You wish to access, such as a third-party supplier of a part model. By accessing such content, You consent to SAL sending Your Personal Data to the content owner and You acknowledge that Your Personal Data will be processed by the content owner in accordance with its own privacy policies.
SAL may also disclose such personal information if required by law or if SAL believes in good faith that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process (for example, a warrant, a subpoena, or other court order) or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of SAL, our customers, or the public.
If allowed by applicable law, SAL may also share Your Personal Data with third parties in order to offer You targeted marketing or advertising.
These transfers may be transmitted over the Internet, via mail, via facsimile, or by any other method that SAL determines is appropriate and in accordance with applicable law.
You have a right to access Your Personal Data. In addition, you have a right to request the rectification, completion, update, and erasure of Your Personal Data. You also have a right to obtain a copy of the Personal Data stored by SAL.
Depending on the scope of the request, SAL reserves the right to charge a reasonable fee to cover any out-of-pocket costs incurred in connection with such access, modification and deletion of Personal Data. SAL may deny access to Personal Data in limited circumstances, defined by applicable laws and regulations.
SAL maintains reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, modification, and destruction. As part of those safeguards, SAL employs sophisticated technology designed to protect Personal Data during its transmission and prevent transmission errors or unauthorized acts of third parties. However, while SAL strives to protect Your Personal Data, in light of the inevitable risks of data transmission over the Internet, SAL cannot guarantee full protection against any error occurring during the course of Personal Data transmission that is beyond SAL' reasonable control.
Since Personal Data may be confidential, access is limited to employees, contractors, suppliers, and agents who have a need to know such data in carrying out their tasks. All the people who have access to Your Personal Data are bound by a duty of confidentiality and subject to disciplinary actions and/or other sanctions if they fail to meet these obligations.
However, it is important for You to exercise caution to prevent unauthorised access to Your Personal Data. You are responsible for the confidentiality of Your password and information appearing on Your account. Consequently, you must ensure that You log out of Your session in the event of shared use of a computer.
Unauthorized access to Personal Data or the improper use of Personal Data may constitute offenses under local law and under the regulations in force.
