This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes the policies and procedures of Sonic Enclosures (“we”, “our” or “us”) on the collection, use and disclosure of your information on sonicenclosures.com (the “Website”) and the services, features, content or applications we offer (collectively with the Website, the “Services”, and together with the Website, the “Site”).

We are committed to your rights to privacy. We promise to share transparently all aspects of how our data collection policies work in regards to privacy, terms, and personal data, and we are in full support of efforts to ensure your protection online.

The following is information to help answer any questions you may have about your experience with Sonic Enclosures.

GDPR compliance

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) take effect May 25 2018, and we support the spirit of the regulations to help ensure a safer Internet for everyone. We aspire to embrace privacy by design and, whenever possible, to not collect and store personally-identifiable information.

Our Privacy Policy contains mentions of the few instances where personally-identifiable information is required. Typically this will include an email address for receiving updates or other contact info such as applying for an open position in the careers area.

Overall, we aim for privacy by default. This means that if we don’t need to keep the information for a specific reason, then we won’t collect it. This approach has felt very much in line with the spirit of GDPR, and we’re fortunate that this philosophy for data collection has been in place for some time.

By using or accessing the Site, you are accepting the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and agreeing that we will have the right to use your personal and other information as described in this Privacy Policy.

As used in this Privacy Policy, the terms “you” and “your” mean each individual or entity that accesses, browses or uses the Site in any manner.

Scope of this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy covers personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information collected by us when you access and/or use the Site.

Personal Information

We may collect both personally identifiable information (“PII”) as well as non-personally identifiable information (“Non-PII”) when you visit or use the Site.

Personally Identifiable Information

PII is information that would allow a third party to identify or locate a particular person. PII includes, without limitation, your name, email address, mailing address, zip code, telephone number and other information that may be requested on forms hosted on this website. We only collects PII if that information is voluntarily provided by you. This may happen when you fill out the feedback form or other forms such as those in the careers section.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Non-PII is information that does not allow a third party to identify or locate a particular person. You can visit the Site to read information about the Site and the products and services offered without revealing any PII. However, during your visit to the Site, we may collect anonymous Non-PII such as the activity of your browser when you are viewing the Site; your site path during your visit to the Site; demographic data; the amount of time you spend on the Site and general information regarding your Internet service provider and host. In keeping with the GDPR, we do not collect any personal information on these activities, it is all anonymous. The Non-PII may be collected by us in several ways:

Logging of Your Activities on the Site
When you access the Site from a computer, mobile phone or other device, we may collect and log information from that device about (but not limited to) your browser type, location, and IP address (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). We may also collect and log anonymous “traffic data” information that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful to us for marketing purposes or for improving the services that we offer to our users, such as, without limitation, the pages you visit, the length of your visit, your referring/exit pages and your clickstream activity and the actions you take while using or visiting the Site.

Beacons

We may also use “web beacons”, clear.gifs, or similar technologies, to track the activity and flow of your visit(s) to the Site. “Web beacons” and clear.gifs are small pieces of code placed on a web page to monitor the behavior of and to collect data about the visitors to that page. This allows us to track whether advertising that we paid for on a site such as Facebook is actually working to lead people to the website. Without it we would never know what advertising may be working. These technologies are always used anonymously and we do not link them to any identifiable personal information.

Information Collected by Third Parties

We may use the services of third parties for various purposes, including, without limitation, to provide us with data collection (including, but not limited to, impressions, clicks, date and time of impressions and clicks, pages viewed, amount of time spent on certain pages or engaged in certain activities, browser type and operating system, and other general click stream information), user traffic activity, reporting and ad response measurement, and to deliver advertisements and marketing messages. These third parties, or we on their behalf, may use their own cookies to monitor your activity during your visit to the Site and/or use of the Site. Additionally, these third parties, or we on their behalf, may place web beacons, clear.gifs or similar technologies on the Site, including, without limitation, on any and all (i) webpages and (ii) email or other electronic communications generated as part of the Site which are sent to you, as well as your replies thereto, and your actions in connection therewith, such as whether or not an email has been opened, a link has been clicked, or a page has been visited. We do not control the foregoing third party monitoring technologies or the information which they may collect and we have no responsibility or liability in connection with the foregoing. A third party’s use of the foregoing monitoring technologies and the information collected is subject to the third party’s own privacy policies and is not covered by this Privacy Policy.
