[Last Updated: September 26, 2013]
Your right to privacy is important. At Trimble we believe that personal information you choose to furnish online should only be used to help us provide you with the highest quality of products, services and support. We display this Privacy Statement to make you aware of the information practices for the Trimble Outdoors websites, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared. We may update this Privacy Statement from time to time to stay current with changes in our business and/or to better serve you. We encourage you to visit this page frequently to inform yourself of any changes.
This Privacy Statement covers Trimble Outdoors’ family of corporate websites, which include:
Consent to Use and Transfer Personal Data
Please note that if you submit personal data through this Trimble website, you will send it to us (Trimble Navigation Limited) in the United States. We will collect, process and transfer your personal data in accordance with this Privacy Statement but possibly not in accordance with the laws of the jurisdiction in which your reside. By submitting your personal data through a Trimble website you consent to Trimble's collection, use, storage and transfer of your personal data to our company databases and other repositories, wherever located, for the purposes for which it is submitted and in accordance with the policies set forth in this Privacy Statement.
Types of Data Collected Online
You can browse the website without entering any personal information. Only general, non-personally identifiable information that Trimble logs from all website visits, such as Internet service provider, operating system/browser type, and pages accessed, will be collected in those instances. This means that a user's session will be tracked, but the user will not be individually identified.
There are times, however, when we or our business partners (such as our external service provider(s) identified below) may need information from you.
For example, you may choose to give us personal information when you:
At such times you may be asked to provide contact and billing information (e.g., your name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card number and expiration date), as well as information about the product or service purchased (e.g., product I.D., serial number, customer number, product version). Demographic or other personal information may also be requested, however, volunteering such information is optional. By providing the information to Trimble you consent to our transfer of this information to our company databases and other repositories, wherever located.
Notice Regarding the Potential Additional Collection of User Data. Data that is stored on your mobile phone or other wireless device will upload from your phone or device and be transmitted to our servers when such upload and transfer is initiated by you or if you have otherwise consented to it, such as when you voluntarily upload and share Trip information as described below. The gathered data may include but is not limited to, track logs (a track log consists of a list of spatial points and the times your Trimble software application was at given spatial points), diagnostics, and information related to advertisements that were viewed on your mobile phone or device, how often they were clicked and how often certain actions such as saving a coupon were performed.
Use of Data
Trimble uses personal information collected on its websites for the purpose for which it is requested or as necessary or permissible under applicable law (e.g., in some jurisdictions we may have to keep invoices under tax laws). We also may use the information you provide to notify you later about new developments with respect to the products and services you have purchased or to inform you about new products, special offers and services offered by Trimble, its subsidiaries and affiliates ("Trimble Companies") or its business partners. It is important to note that you may opt out of receiving further information from Trimble, as discussed in detail below. We use non-personal information to analyze sales trend data as it relates to geography, time and demographics.
