If you are using the Services from outside the United States, please be aware that Collected Information may be transferred to, stored in, and processed in the United States (where our and our suppliers’ servers and databases are located and operated). The data protection and related laws and regulations of the United States might not be as comprehensive as those in the country from which you access the Services.
The information that we may collect from or about you broadly falls into the following categories:
Information that you voluntarily provide to us, for example, your contact information, project specifications (when you use our online tools), and job applications. Information that we passively collect through your use of the Services, for example, data collected by the servers used to operate the Services (e.g., IP addresses), data collected by cookies, and data collected by analytics and advertising services.
You can visit our website without providing us with your personal information, but you will be required to provide personal information in order to submit job applications and to use certain other tools and features of the services. Envotec will collect any information from or about you that you voluntarily share with us, which may include your name, email address, physical address, and telephone number.
Find a Sales Representative
To find a Envotec sales representative, you will need to enter your city or zip code and will need to identify the product line(s) in which you are interested. We will use this information to identify sales representatives working your area.
We may use your job application to evaluate your qualifications and to otherwise consider or respond to your application for employment. Your submission of a job application does not in any way require Envotec to review that application or consider you for employment.
Mailing List Information
If you sign up or otherwise opt in to receive promotions from us, you will need to submit your email address. You may also provide your name, physical address, telephone number, company name, and other information. Envotec will use this information to send you promotional and other electronic and hard copy communications. You have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving any promotional emails from us at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions contained in the applicable email.
IP Addresses and Related Data
When you use the Services or visit our websites, we may automatically collect certain information from your computer or device. Specifically, the servers used to operate and provide the Services may collect data pertaining to you and the equipment, software, and communication methods you use to access the Internet and the Services, including Internet protocol (“IP”) addresses assigned to the computers and other devices from where you access the Internet, your Internet service provider (ISP), your device ID number, your approximate geographic location, your browser type, the pages you access on the Services, the websites you access before and after visiting the Services, the length of time you spend on the Services, date and time stamps, and clickstream data.
Envotec may use this information to administer the Services and its servers, to generate statistical information, to monitor and analyze Services traffic and usage patterns, to monitor and prevent fraud, to investigate complaints and violations of our policies, and to improve the Service content and the products, services, materials, and other content that we describe or make available through the Services (see also how we use Google Analytics as described below). We may combine this information with other Collected Information (including personal information) and information obtained from third parties for the purposes discussed below. The suppliers that we use to provide the Services may collect information about your visits to the Services and other websites. Some of this information may be collected using cookies and similar tracking technologies as explained further below under “Cookies.”
In addition to the approximate geographic location information collected as discussed above, we may, with your consent, access more specific location information to enhance the user experience and increase the usefulness of the Services. This includes both geographical location information that you input using the Services (e.g., when you enter your zip code, city, or physical address) and geographical location information collected by device-based location services (including GPS data). You may choose to allow us to access your location by granting the Services access to your location when prompted or through your device’s location services settings.
Due to this automatic collection, we do not currently honor do-not-track requests.
Google Analytics’ Advertising Features
We have also enabled and implemented the following Google Analytics Advertising Features: Remarketing with Google Analytics, and Demographics and Interest Reporting. Remarketing with Analytics uses Google Analytics cookies to serve advertisements to you across the Internet based on your visits to the Services. Demographics and Interest Reporting uses a third-party cookie to collect information about our Services traffic by tracking users across websites and across time, which generates a report for us to better understand our Services users. Segments allows us to isolate and analyze subsets of Services users by sorting our Google Analytics data. To opt out of remarketing advertising provided through Google, to customize your ad preferences, or to limit Google’s collection or use this information, visit Google’s Safety Center and Google’s Ad Settings and follow Google’s personalized ad opt-out instructions. Opting out will not affect your use of the Services.
Advertising Networks, Personalized Advertising, Remarketing, and Retargeting
From time to time the Services may use or participate in advertising networks and related advertising services that are managed and provided by third-party advertising servers, advertising agencies, technology vendors, and research firms, including, for example, Google AdWords and advertising retargeting services provided by Facebook. These services collect information about your visits to and interactions with the Services and other websites and will use that information to target advertisements for goods and services. The information collected may be associated with your personal information. These targeted advertisements may appear on the Services or on other websites. Advertising networks often gather data about consumers who view advertisements to make inferences about a consumer’s interests and preferences, which enables their computers to deliver advertisements directly targeted to the consumer’s specific interests. This practice is often referred to as “online behavioral advertising.” For example, a third-party advertising network might collect the type of Internet browser you use, the type of computer operating system you use, the domain name of a website you visit, whether or not you visit specific pages of the Services and other websites, the location of your Internet service provider, the date and time of a visit to a website, and other interactions between you and a website.
With respect to Google AdWords, Google uses your Internet searches, cookies, and similar identifiers (e.g., pixel tags) to collect information about your visits to the Services and your interaction with our products and services to generate targeted advertisements to you on other websites that you visit across the Internet. To opt out of remarketing advertising provided through Google, to customize your ad preferences, or to limit Google’s collection or use this information, visit Google’s Safety Center and Google’s Ad Settings and follow Google’s personalized ad opt-out instructions. Opting out will not affect your use of the Services.
If you have a Facebook account but do not wish Facebook to collect data relating to you via the Services, we suggest that you: (a) hide social media platform plug-ins using an ad blocker; (b) always log off completely from Facebook before visiting other websites and delete all related cookies; and, (c) where the option is available, disable the advertising services and networks operated by Facebook.
To change your preferences with respect to certain online ads and to obtain more information about third-party ad networks and online behavioral advertising, please visit the National Advertising Initiative Consumer opt-out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Program. Please remember that changing your settings with individual browsers or ad networks will not necessarily carry over to other browsers or ad networks. As a result, depending on the opt-outs you request, you may still see our ads from time to time.
