We only collect personal information from our visitors on a voluntary basis. Personal information may include your name, title, company, address, phone number, email address etc. We do not require this information to obtain access to any part of our web site. The personal information we collect is only used by us to process a request that has been placed or for marketing Olin products and services. Additional personal information may be collected from persons submitting resumes or making job inquiries or persons accessing the restricted customer sections of this web site. Olin may also communicate with you through email and notices posted on this web site. Olin may use your personal information to send you promotional information relating to the products and services offered by Olin or third parties that Olin feels may be of interest to you. The personal information you provide will allow us to alert you to new developments, new products, features and enhancements, special offers, upgrade opportunities, and other events of interest. We strive to limit use of the information you provide to those offers that we think you would appreciate receiving. We may send email messages that may contain information regarding third-party products or services; however, this doesn’t mean that we’ve traded your personal information to any party.
We may also share personal information with our corporate affiliates and subsidiary companies for purposes related to the business of those affiliates and subsidiaries. We do not sell, share, or rent personal information to other organizations. We will not give out personal information to any third parties except when you consent to disclosure; to comply with any law, court orders, subpoena or legal process; to enforce or apply Olin’s agreements or protect Olin and its rights; by operation of law, when such personal information is transferred as a part of sale of assets including the assets represented by this web site; or in the event that Olin, or substantially all of its assets, are acquired outside of the ordinary course of business, and such personal information may be one of the transferred assets. We do not knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of thirteen (13) years.
Because Olin operates from its headquarters in Clayton, Missouri in the United States of America and through subsidiary companies located in countries around the globe, and because the web servers which host its web sites are located at numerous locations inside and outside the United States, it is possible that personal information about visitors may be transferred from one country to another. Such transfers will only occur in compliance with the applicable local law relevant to the source of the information. When you furnish personal information to Olin through this web site, you are also giving your consent, and you will be deemed to have consented to a cross-border transfer of that information unless you specifically elect not to have the information transferred at the time you furnish it to us and inform us of your decision via the Contact Us link of this web site.
We may collect non-identifiable information, such as browser type, operating system, and IP address, to ensure that our web site is optimized for most users. This non-identifiable information may also be used to improve the performance of our web site. The Olin web server also collects the domain names (not the e-mail addresses) of visitors to our web site. This information is aggregated to measure number of visits, average time spent on the web site, pages viewed, etc. Olin uses this information to measure the use of our web site and to improve the content of our web site.
Olin’s web site may contain “links” to other web sites, and we make every effort to only link to web sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy. However, these third party web sites are operated independently of our web site, and we are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other web sites. Links posted on our web site to other business do not imply that we endorse or are responsible for the services or products offered by linked web sites.
Your California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users that are residents of California to request certain information regarding Olin’s disclosures of personally identifiable information to third parties for such third parties’ direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please contact Olin by using the form on the Contact Us page of this website.
This policy and use of Olin shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Missouri. If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from the other provisions and shall not affect the validity of the other provisions.
