MSDS Translations operates www.msds-translations.com. It is MSDS Translations’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, MSDS Translations collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically report, such as browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. MSDS Translations’ purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how MSDS Translations’ visitors use its website. From time to time, MSDS Translations may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing an internal report on trends in the usage of its website.
MSDS Translations also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users submitting SDS documents via the easy document upload tool. MSDS Translations only discloses logged-in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that document submitter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the site.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to MSDS Translations’ websites choose to interact with MSDS Translations in ways that require MSDS Translations to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MSDS Translations gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who submit an SDS document for a free quote to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with MSDS Translations – by purchasing SDS translation services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, MSDS Translations collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with MSDS Translations. MSDS Translations does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
MSDS Translations may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, MSDS Translations may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by the submission form service to help identify spam. MSDS Translations may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, MSDS Translations does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
MSDS Translations discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on MSDS Translations’ behalf or to provide services available at MSDS Translations’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using MSDS Translations’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. MSDS Translations will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, MSDS Translations discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when MSDS Translations believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of MSDS Translations, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an MSDS Translations website and have supplied your email address, MSDS Translations may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with MSDS Translations and our services. We primarily use our site content to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. MSDS Translations takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If MSDS Translations, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that MSDS Translations goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of MSDS Translations may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
