Disclosure and Use of Personal Information
Eaton does not sell, trade, rent or allow others to use your information outside of Eaton other than as noted above.
We may disclose information to appropriate legal authorities in special cases when we believe in good faith that such release is necessary:
Eaton Corporation is an international company. As such this site has users from all over the world. Any information you give us through this site may be transmitted to servers outside the country where the information is entered, and may be used, stored and processed outside the country where it was entered. Eaton is not responsible for the handling of information by servers of third parties. We may use certain information gathered from this site to compile demographic data about our users, sales, traffic patterns and related site information. If provided to third parties, this demographic data will NOT include any personally identifiable information.
Web sites that are linked to this site and visited by a user from our site may have different policies and terms and conditions for use. Eaton is not responsible for the privacy practices or terms and conditions of these other sites.
Eaton uses appropriate reasonable measures to protect personal information. We use physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard your data. However, just as in the physical world, "perfect" security does not exist on the Internet. Even though Eaton intends to protect your information, Eaton does not guarantee that communications with our site or access to your personal information will never be improperly accessed by third parties.
When you place an order using Eaton's online product catalog services, the credit card information you submit will be transmitted in a secured format using secure server software (SSL) that encrypts this information. (Your credit card information will be submitted to the credit card institution for processing using the credit card company's secure server software or security measures.)
When you become a Registered User, we ask for your name, e-mail address and other information to assist us in processing your order. You will be asked whether you would like to receive e-mail messages regarding our products, promotions or other topics which may be of interest to you. We will only send such messages with your prior consent. You may review and update the information that you provide by using a personalization form on the same site you used to become a registered user.
An IP address is a number used to identify computers so that data, such as Web pages, you request can be sent to you. Our Web server automatically collects IP addresses for purposes of administering our system and to help us diagnose problems. We do not use the IP address for any other reason.
By using our Web site, you consent to the guidelines outlined in this policy.
