How We Use Your Personal Data
Smooth-On takes your privacy very seriously and we only retain your personal data for as long as necessary and for the purposes specified in this notice. The purposes and reasons for processing your personal data are as follows:
- If you voluntarily register to our site, we will occasionally send you marketing and survey information and notifications about changes to our service. Such information will be non-intrusive and is processed on the grounds of legitimate interests. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and/or not respond to such communication;
- To ensure that our website is presented in the most effective manner for you and your computer and to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service; and
- To use for analytics purposes for marketing.
You have the right to access any personal data that Smooth-On processes about you and, if we did not collect the data directly from you, information about the source.
If you believe that we hold any incomplete or inaccurate data about you, you have the right to ask us to correct and/or complete the information and we will strive to do so as quickly as possible; unless there is a valid reason for not doing so, at which point you will be notified.
You also have the right to request erasure of your personal data or to restrict processing in accordance with applicable data protection laws; as well as to object to any direct marketing from us. Where applicable, you have the right to data portability of your information and the right to be informed about any automated decision-making we may use. However, much of the personal data we process is required for us to provide you with our services and we may not be able to offer our services without it.
If we receive a request from you to exercise any of the above rights, we may ask you to verify your identity before acting on the request; this is to ensure that your data is protected and kept secure.
Smooth-On takes your privacy seriously and takes every reasonable measure and precaution to protect and secure your personal data. We work hard to protect you and your personal data from unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction. Accordingly, all information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers and encrypted using SSL technology. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Sharing Your Personal Data to Third-Parties
We do not share or disclose any of your personal information without your consent, other than for the purposes specified in this notice or where there is a legal requirement. Personal data you submit may therefore be transferred to:
