BY PROVIDING PERSONAL INFORMATION TO US ON THIS WEB SITE, YOU CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF THAT INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

Headwaters Incorporated and any of its subsidiaries (“Headwaters”, “us”, or “we”) respect the privacy concerns of visitors to the Headwaters or any Headwaters affiliated Web site. This Privacy Policy applies only to the information we collect on this or our subsidiary Web sites.

Information We Collect Automatically

If you merely browse through the Headwaters Web site or download information, our servers will automatically collect certain information from you. This information includes the: (a) name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; (b) Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; (c) browser software you use and your operating system; (d) date and time you access the Web site; and (e) Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to this Web site.

We will use information that we automatically collect to manage and improve our Web site to make it as useful as possible for visitors like you. We reserve the right to share any information that we collect from you with any of our subsidiaries. None of the information we automatically collect is tied to personal information you may provide to us (see below).

Information You Choose to Provide to Us

Headwaters gathers and retains personal information about you only when voluntarily submitted by you. For example, if you choose to complete and submit one of the forms located on our “Request Literature” page or “Contact Us” pages, we will retain the data you submit to respond to your inquiry and consider your request. After we have responded to your inquiry and considered your request, the information you submitted will be retained for our records. If we change the manner we use or retain personal information you provide to us, we will update this Privacy Policy without any notification to you.

Personal Information as an Asset of Headwaters

The personal information you provide to us is an asset of Headwaters. If Headwaters or a substantial part of our business is sold or otherwise transferred to a third party, your personal information may be transferred as well. We will NOT notify you of any transfer of your personal information in connection with such a transaction.

Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties

Headwaters reserves the right to sell or rent the personal information you provide to us to any third party WITHOUT first obtaining your consent. In addition, we reserve the right to disclose the personal information you provide to us WITHOUT your consent including but not limited to: (a) as required by law; (b) to our independent contractors who host and maintain our Web site and e-mail services; (c) to our franchisees or distributors, but only to respond to requests by you for information; and (d) to service providers or suppliers if the disclosure will enable that party to perform business, professional or technical support for us.

Cookies

A “cookie” is a small text file that a Web site can place on your computer’s hard drive for record-keeping or other administrative purposes. We may or may not use cookies on this or our affiliated Web sites. 

SECURITY

 

We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. You should be aware, however, that no transmission over the Internet, and no electronic data storage method, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of the personal information you provide to us either during its transmission or its storage on Headwaters’ systems.

Headwaters does not endorse and is not responsible for the information practices or privacy policies of Web sites operated by others that may be linked to our Web site. If you decide to access a third party’s Web site that may be linked to this Web site, you should consult that Web site’s privacy policy.
