This statement discloses the online privacy practices for all Ansell web sites, including www.ansellcondoms.com, www.ansellpro.com, www.ansellhealthcare.com, www.ansell.com, www.ansell.be, www.lifestyles.com, and www.mates.co.uk and describes our online information collection, use and storage practices. This policy applies only to information we collect online at this web site, and not to any other information collection we may conduct at other Ansell web sites or offline. Please be sure to read this policy before using an Ansell web site or submitting information to us. Our privacy practices may change from time to time, so please check this area periodically for corresponding updates to our policy.
WHAT INFORMATION ANSELL COLLECTS FROM YOU, HOW IT COLLECTS IT, AND WHY
As with most web sites, Ansell tracks information in two ways. There is voluntary information that we request, and information that we track passively.
We actively solicit information from you in several ways, including, for example during sweepstakes registrations or when you purchase products at the LifeStyles store. We also solicit information from you at our "contact us" page, at various of our sites (for example, at our corporate site, at our ansellcondoms.com site; and additionally at our ansellhealthcare.com we provide a contact form for you to request our "Source to Surgery" newsletter, and at the feedback area of our lifestylessport.com site we provide you with a form to tell us your thoughts on our site), by inviting you to send us electronic mail messages, and at several of our product sites. We collect e-mail address, street address, and telephone number, as well as certain demographic information that will help us provide you with better products. On our LifeStyles store we also collect financial information.
Ansell generally does not require you to provide personally identifiable information to visit and use Ansell web sites; however, in order to participate in some activities such as our online contests and sweepstakes, or to make purchases at our LifeStyles store, you must provide us with the information requested. We may ask during those processes for additional information not required to complete your request. Optional information will be noted at the specific area. If you decide not to provide us with the required information, we will be unable to process your request. For example, if you do not provide us with your mailing address, we will not be able to process your purchase at the LifeStyles store.
HOW ANSELL USES YOUR INFORMATION
We use the information you provide to respond to your request (for example to enter you in a sweepstakes or send you a purchased product), to notify you about new features, products or services, to notify you of upcoming contests or sweepstakes, to customize your experience on our site, to improve our features, products and services, to send you surveys or questionnaires, and for other business purposes. In order to provide you with this web site, and with our products and services, we may share your information with our agents or partners. For example, when hosting sweepstakes we often work with promotion companies with whom we share your information. We also work with agents such as SureSource, Inc., SoftCoin, and SG&W to bring you certain areas of our web site. SureSource, Inc. hosts our online store through a cobranded arrangement, for example. These companies collect your information on our behalf, share the information with us, and also retain that information for their own purposes. In addition to sharing your information with our partners and agents, we may also share your personal information with certain select vendors whose products or services we believe you may find of interest. We will also disclose your personal information if required by law to do so. We may also provide aggregated information about our users to third parties. If you do not want us to share your personally identifiable information with unrelated third parties, you may notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use the information we collect from you passively during your visit to create better products and services, analyze trends, and to administer our site. For example, we use this information to determine which areas of our site are more popular, to determine fluctuation of visitor numbers from week to week, to diagnose problems with our server, and to improve your web experience by determining the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site.
WHAT CHOICES YOU HAVE ABOUT THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE PROVIDED TO ANSELL
We strive to provide you with as many choices and as much control as possible regarding the personal information you have provided to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
You may also send us an e-mail message at email@example.com, to request access to, to correct, or to delete any personal information that you have provided us. To protect your privacy, we will only respond to e-mail messages sent from the e-mail account you originally provided to us when purchasing product or registering for a sweepstakes. Should you elect to have your information deleted, we will also delete your user account.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from us or from our partners may also opt-out of receiving these communications by following the unsubscribe instructions in the e-mail they receive or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not wish for us to share your personal information with unaffiliated or non-agent third parties, you may send us a notice to this effect at email@example.com. You may also opt-out of receipt of marketing messages from Ansell by sending a message to the same address namely, firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW ANSELL PROTECTS YOUR INFORMATION
Ansell takes its responsibility to protect your personal information seriously. In addition to technical measures such as firewalls and SSL encryption when transferring your data, we have also implemented procedural protection measures to protect your privacy.
WHAT ANSELL DOES ABOUT CHILDREN ON ITS SITE
Ansell web sites are not intended for, nor do we believe they are appealing to, children under the age of 13. Ansell does not knowingly solicit or collect information from children under the age of 13. If Ansell learns that it has been provided with information from someone under 13, Ansell will destroy that information. We encourage parents to take an active role in ensuring that their children do not send information about themselves anywhere on the Internet unknowingly, and suggest that they use software tools or online services to ensure a safe Internet experience for their children.
