Legal Notice

Website Privacy Policy

This version is in effect as of 1st March 2020.

Les Industries Polykar Inc. (“Polykar”) understands the importance of protecting personal information. Subject to this policy, Polykar will not collect, use or disclose your personal information without your consent, unless permitted or required by law.

1. Application and Scope
This Website Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) applies to any personal information (as defined below) collected or generated by Polykar about users of this website, www.polykar.com (the “Website”). This Privacy Policy also explains how this website uses cookies and similar technologies.

2. Definition of Personal Information
When used in this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means any information about an identifiable individual. This may include, for example, your name and/or contact information provided to us in the course of your use of this Website, for instance when you submit an inquiry or subscribe to a newsletter. This term may also include other types of more technical information, such as website visitors’ IP addresses or browsing history on our Website, but only when this information can identify you as an individual. Information that is aggregated and/or anonymized and cannot be associated with an identifiable individual is not considered to be personal information.

3. Collection and Use of Personal Information
In certain sections of our Website, we may ask you for personal information or you may submit personal information, such as your name and contact information, in the context of our offer of a service that you have requested, for instance when you submit an inquiry through this Website, when you contact us or when you apply for a position in the Careers section of this Website. Generally, we may use the personal information we collect through our Website for the following purposes, or as otherwise required or permitted by law:
• to understand and assess the interests, wants and changing needs of visitors with a view to improving our products and services and developing new ones; and
• subject to your right to withdraw consent provided in this Privacy Policy, to communicate with you to provide you with marketing communications (including, without limitation, newsletters, as well as information concerning additional products and services that may be of interest to you).

When possible, rather than using personal information, we will anonymize (i.e. remove personal information) and/or aggregate personal information so that it no longer identifies an individual, and use it for the purposes mentioned above or any other legal purpose.

Job applications: If you have applied for employment with Polykar through the Careers section of this Website, we will use your personal information for recruitment and other customary human resources purposes. For example, we may send you information about new job opportunities within Polykar, subject to your right to withdraw consent provided in this Privacy Policy.

4. Technical Information.
When you visit our Website, we may also collect technical information, using electronic means, such as cookies. This information may include information about your visit to our Website, including the IP address of your computer and which browser you used to view our Website, your operating system, screen resolution, location, language settings in browsers, the site you came from, keywords searched (if arriving from a search engine), the number of page views, information you entered, advertisements you have seen, etc. This data is used to measure and improve the effectiveness of our Website or enhance the experience for our visitors. We treat this information as personal information when it is associated with your account or contact information. As examples, we collect and use the following type of information when you visit and/or interact with us on our Website:

Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics, which allows us to see information on user website activities including, but not limited to, page views, source and time spent on our Website. This information is depersonalized and is displayed as numbers, meaning that it cannot be tracked back to individuals. You may opt out of our use of Google Analytics by visiting the Google Analytics opt-out page.

Your Choice with Cookies. You can block the use of cookies by activating the settings in your browser. The “Help” feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. If you choose to withhold consent or subsequently block cookies, you may not be able to access all or part of the content of our Website. You can also disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.

5. Sharing of Personal Information
Polykar may make your information available to third parties as follows or as otherwise permitted or required by law:

Service providers. We may hire service providers to perform services on our behalf. This may include, without limitation, an organization retained by Polykar to perform work on its behalf, such as to process a payment and/or to transport goods. We provide them with a limited amount of information necessary in order for them to provide the services required. Polykar will strive to protect personal information disclosed to its service providers by contractual agreements.

As permitted or required by law. From time to time, Polykar may be compelled to disclose personal information in response to a law, regulation, court order, subpoena, valid demand, search warrant, government investigation or other legally valid request or inquiry. We may also disclose information to our accountants, auditors, agents and lawyers in connection with the enforcement or protection of our legal rights. We may release certain personal information when we have reasonable grounds to believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property and safety of others and ourselves, in accordance with or as authorized by law.

Business transaction. While we do not anticipate any such transactions, in the future, we may disclose personal information to a third party in connection with a sale or transfer of business or assets, an amalgamation, a re-organization or financing of parts of our business. However, in the event the transaction is completed, your personal information will remain protected by applicable privacy laws. In the event the transaction is not completed, we will require the other party not to use or disclose your personal information in any manner whatsoever and to completely delete such information.

6. Right to Withdraw Consent
You may withdraw your consent to our collection, use and sharing of personal information at any time, subject to contractual and legal restrictions and reasonable notice. Note that if you withdraw your consent to certain uses of your personal information, we may no longer be able to provide you with certain of our services.
Receiving commercial emails and other electronic messages from us is optional and you may unsubscribe at any time by following the unsubscribe link in any email or other message or contacting us as indicated in the How to Contact Us section of this Privacy Policy.

7. Privacy Policies of Third Parties
