Effective Date: May 25, 2018
We only collect the Personally Identifiable Information discussed in this Policy with your consent. You give us consent to use Personally Identifying Information (including cookies) by checking the box at the bottom of this window and hitting “Accept.” If you make a purchase on this Site, sign up for email newsletters, or give us information to contact you, you will be asked to consent to our use of that information.
We collect and use information about you which we reasonably believe will help us administer our business or provide products, services or other opportunities to you. This includes information about your use of our Site, information that you provide to us (such as name, contact information, and email address), and information from cookies that helps us personalize your experience on the Site. We use the information we learn about you to help us personalize and improve the experience you have with us, to respond to your requests, and to communicate with you.
The types of information we may collect, retain, and use include the following:
1. Site Use Information
You can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers may collect the domain names, not the email addresses, of visitors. This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Site, pages viewed, the Site you visited just before coming to this Site, internet service provider, etc. The Company may use this information (“behavior profiles”) to measure the use of our Site and to improve the content we offer. We may share with third parties that have a legitimate business relationship with Bell experiential information or other data which does not personally identify users of our Site. For example, this might include product or service preferences of all visitors to our Site.
2. Information You Provide to Us
You are not required to register to access our Site. However, if you send us an email; contact us to receive information, products or services; or register in connection with a specific area of the Site, we may collect profile information from you (“Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII”). You may provide, for instance, your first and last name, email address, company name, title, physical address (i.e., street address, city, state, country and zip code), customer ID, phone number, fax number, product information or other information. Although you may choose not to provide the optional information to us, it may result in some features not being available to you.
Our Use of Information You Provide
We may use your Personally Identifiable Information to respond to your inquiries, process an order, contact you regarding account status or customer service, ask for your feedback on our service, let you know about products or services which may be of interest to you, allow you to access specific account information, or in the case of seeking employment at Textron or one of its subsidiaries, match you with appropriate job opportunities, or for other purposes. We may store the information you share with use for marketing research and other marketing purposes.
Sharing Information you Provided with Third Parties
You also consent to our making your email addresses available to other reputable organizations affiliated with Bell whose products or services we think you may find interesting.
Information Shared on Forums and Chatrooms
Be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personal information in public areas of the Site, such as chat rooms or bulletin boards, this information may be seen and used by others. So, be sure to exercise good judgment when sharing personal information in these forums if applicable.
3. Email Communications
We may use your email address to contact you to respond to your inquiries or to provide information on products or services to you. To help us determine whether you have received an email from us, and to help us make emails more useful and interesting, we may receive a confirmation that you have opened an email from us.
Retention of Your Data
We retain your Personally Identifiable Information only for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected and processed.
Because of the nature of our business, our products and services are not designed to appeal to minors, and therefore we do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive any information from children. Our terms and conditions of use require that any registration may only be made by those age 18 or older and that any product or service purchases may only be made by those age 18 or older. If we have reason to believe that information is being provided by a child under the age of 18, Bell will not collect the information without parental consent or parent notification, which will include the opportunity for the parent to prevent the use of the information or to prevent the child's participation in the activity. Without parental consent, online information will only be used to respond to an unsolicited request and for no other purposes. We recognize that protecting children's identities and privacy online is important and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents.
Restriction on Disclosing Information to Third Parties & Data Transfers
We do not sell or lease your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties; however, we may share your PII with Bell-affiliated companies or authorized representatives. There are also limited circumstances where we share your PII with parties not affiliated Bell. Please see below for more information about our policies on sharing data with third parties, including our policy on EU Personal Data.
