Introduction

This privacy policy applies to Ontex and any of its affiliates which control and make use of information of a visitor of this Site (“Visitor”) collected via this Site.

Information collection

The Visitor doesn’t have to submit any personal information in order to use the Site. The Site collects only personally identifiable information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by Visitors. Such information may consist of, but is not limited to, Visitors’ name, email address, telephone number, country and profile.

Ontex does not usually seek sensitive information (e.g., data relating to race or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, criminal record, physical or mental health, or sexual orientation) from Visitors. Ontex shall, where necessary, obtain Visitors’ explicit consent to collect and use such information.

Collection and use of personal information

Personal information is used only for limited purposes. For example, when the Visitor registers with the Site to gain access to specific content or request future communications about Ontex, Ontex may use the information submitted by Visitor to create a personal profile to customize Ontex’ response to further requests or inquiries.

Ontex may also use the information to personalize Visitors Site experience. When the Visitor chooses to register online for an Ontex-hosted event Ontex will use the information submitted by Visitor to respond to the Visitor. In addition, Ontex may, where necessary, use Visitors information for various Site-related tasks.

Ontex will ensure that our marketing activities comply with applicable law, and implement procedures to obtain necessary consents before sending the Visitor email containing information about Ontex offerings. You may at any time request that Ontex discontinues sending the Visitor such materials.

Disclosure of information to third parties

Although Ontex may provide Visitors’ information to service providers that handle information on our behalf, Ontex will usually not share the information with third parties for secondary or unrelated purposes unless otherwise disclosed at the point of collection.

Where appropriate, personal information may be disclosed to law enforcement, regulatory or other government agencies, or third parties where necessary or desirable to comply with legal or regulatory obligations or requests or for the purposes identified above.
