Crane Worldwide Logistics Website Privacy Policy

Effective on: October 4, 2018

PURPOSE

Crane Worldwide Logistics, and its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, “CWW”) respect your privacy. The purpose of this CWW Website Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) is to outline how personal information is collected and processed through use of our website located at http://www.craneww.com (the “Website”). 

This policy applies to the Website only. If you link to other third-party websites, platforms, and applications (“Third-Party Sites”), these Third-Party Sites may have their own privacy policies and terms and conditions which CWW encourages all parties to review before engaging any Third-Party Sites.

PERSONAL DATA COLLECTED BY CWW

“Personal data” (also known as “personal information”) means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (the “data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

CWW will only process your personal data where it is fair and lawful to do so. Any such use shall be in accordance with this policy.

Some examples of personal data include name, address, screen name, profile picture, email address, telephone number, IP address, birthday, and lifestyle choices or preferences such as hobbies and interests.

CWW may receive personal data from different sources, which are discussed in detail below.
Information Provided Directly to CWW
    
CWW collects personal information voluntarily submitted by visitors to our Website. The types of information collected include:
•    biographical information such as name, age, gender, and date of birth;
•    contact information such as username, email address, mailing address, and telephone number;
•    payment information;
•    professional information such as commercial skills, job title, and/or standing within a business;
•    user-generated content such as posts and other content submitted to the Website; and
•    any other personal information voluntarily provided to CWW.
    Information Collected Automatically When Using the CWW Website

CWW (and third-party service providers acting on behalf of CWW) use cookies and other tools (such as web analytics tools and pixel tags) to automatically collect information concerning the usage of the Website, subject to the terms of this Policy and applicable data protection laws and regulations. The types of information automatically collected may include:
•    browser usage;
•    webpages visted;
•    IP address;
•    used hyperlinks;
•    user name;
•    profile picture;
•    gender;
•    networks and any other information shared when using Third-Party Sites (such as the “Like” functionality on Facebook or the “+1” functionality on Google+); and
•    websites visited before using the CWW website.
    Information Collected From Other Sources

CWW may receive personal information from legitimate, commercially available sources, such as public databases, data aggregators, and various reputable third parties. The types of personal information that may be collected from such sources includes:
•    biographical information such as name and age;
•    contact information such as street address;
•    preferences and information about lifestyle choices such as hobbies and interests;
•    publicly available information such as user-generated content, blogs and postings, as permitted by law; and
•    buying information.
Dependent on location, there may be solutions to assist in controlling online behavioral advertising preferences (such as whether certain third parties may collect and use site usage information for targeted advertising purposes). For example, in Europe the website www.youronlinechoices.com permits the choice of which companies can deliver customized ads while Network Advertising Initiative’s Opt-Out Tool and the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Opt-Out Tool offer the same services in the U.S.

Other Disclosure of Your Personal Information

The manner of destruction shall be appropriate to preserve and ensure the confidentiality of the personal information given the level of sensitivity, value and criticality to CWW.

CWW will obtain consent from a parent or guardian before the collection of any minor’s personal information. If CWW has collected personal information from a minor without the consent of a parent or guardian where such consent should have been obtained, CWW will delete that personal information as soon as possible.  Any minor whose personal information is collected, used, or disclosed by CWW should review the terms of this policy should be reviewed with that minor’s parent or guardian.
