Privacy Policy

Last Updated September 1, 2020

Kyocera Senco Industrial tools, Inc. (“SENCO”, “we”, “us” or “our”) respects your desire for privacy. This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect about you, whether on our website, SENCO.com, mobile application, or elsewhere (collectively, the “Site”). It also explains why we collect the information, as well as how we collect and use the information. 

This Privacy Policy is intended for individuals in the United States. If you live outside of the United States and choose to use the Site, you do so at your own risk and understand that your information will be sent to and stored in the United States. By using the Site in the United States or otherwise providing personal information to us, you agree to this Privacy Policy.  

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

“Personal Information” generally means any information that identifies you as an individual, and any other information we associate with it. We collect several categories of information, from a few different sources:
 
Information You Provide. We collect information and other content you voluntarily provide us, which may include:

  • user ID and password;
  • contact information when you register a product or submit an inquiry, such as your name, street address, date of birth, phone number, and/or email address. You may also provide us with information about other people, such as when you provide employment references;
  • zip code in connection with dealer / service center locator feature on the Site;
  • any information you provide in communications with us, such as by e-mail or our customer call center, product registration, or applications for employment;
  • any content or contributions you post in a public space on the Site, including comments, videos and photos that you might submit; 
  • product and account details in connection with product registration, warranty claims, and service requests or repairs. 

Usage Information. We passively collect information when you use the Site, through our web servers and third-party analytics tools. For instance, our system logs may record certain information about visitors to the Site, including the web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, device and mobile ad identifiers, browser information, interaction with the Site, pages viewed, app usage, and other such information. We may collect similar information from emails you receive from us that can help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients.

We also use certain cookies, pixel tags and other technologies to help us understand how you use the Site and enable us to personalize your experience. To learn more about cookies, please see the Cookies and Analytics section below, or visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.

Information from Third Parties. We may receive Personal Information about you, your purchase, or SENCO product from third parties such as online and brick-and-mortar dealers, repair and service centers, and advertising partners, to supplement the information we receive directly from you. If we do so, this Policy governs how we can use that information.

Non-Identifiable Information. In addition to collecting Personal Information, we may collect information that does not identify you and is not associated with your Personal Information. We may also de-identify information, so it no longer identifies you. We may also aggregate and use such information to engage in marketing and other activities in a manner that does not use Personal Information and is thus outside the scope of this Privacy Policy.

HOW WE USE PERSONAL INFORMATION

We may use Personal Information as permitted by law, for the following business purposes:

  • to respond to your inquiries and fulfill your requests, and to communicate with you about orders, purchases, returns, service requests, and your account;
  • to consider your application for employment and qualifications, and to conduct reference checks;
  • to inform you about our brands, products, promotions, events or other promotional purposes, and to administer promotional activities;
  • to improve and personalize your experience with our Site;
  • to send you advertising/promotional material from any of our affiliates, and on behalf of our promotional and strategic partners;
  • to perform analytics, quality control, market research, and determine the effectiveness of our Site, promotional campaigns, and develop new products and services.

We may also use your information as we believe to be necessary or appropriate for certain essential purposes, including:

  • to comply with applicable law and legal process;
  • to respond to requests from public and government authorities, including public and government authorities outside your country of residence;
  • to detect, prevent, or investigate potential security incidents or fraud;
  • to enforce our terms and conditions;
  • to protect our operations;
  • to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property, security and/or that of you or others;
  • to allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.

If you submit any information relating to other people in connection with the Site, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION

To the extent permitted by law, SENCO may disclose your Personal Information to the following categories of third parties: 

  • to our affiliates for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy;
  • to our professional advisors, such as accountants, auditors, legal representatives and similar providers in connection with the professional services that they provide to us;
  • to our third-party service providers who provide repairs and warranty services, order fulfilment, website hosting, data analytics, marketing/advertising, payment processing, infrastructure provision, IT services, customer service and repairs, email delivery services, and other such services, to enable them to provide services;
  • to a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings); and
