Guardian Fall Protection has created the following privacy policy to demonstrate our commitment to protecting your privacy, and to disclose our information-gathering and dissemination practices. This online privacy policy is here to tell you about, among other things, the information Guardian Fall Protection collects through our Website, how we use that information, how you can opt out of certain uses of the information we collect, and how Guardian Fall Protection can make changes to this privacy policy. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding this privacy policy by contacting us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

WHAT INFORMATION DOES GUARDIAN FALL PROTECTION COLLECT?

In collecting your personal information, we aim to provide you with a more customized experience. This information lets us provide services and features that we think are more likely to meet your needs. Of course, users can browse our website without providing any personal information, but once you give us this personal information, you are not anonymous to us.

Guardian Fall Protection collects two types of information when you visit our website: information that may be used to identify you individually, such as your name and email address ("personal information"), and non-personal information, such as IP addresses, the type of browser you are using, and aggregated information about user activities on our website ("non-personal information").

Personal Information: We may specifically request personal information from you at certain points on our website. For example, when you sign up for our newsletter, we collect personal information to complete the process. This information may include, without limitation, your name, address, telephone number, and email address. If you apply to join our Distributor Program, we may collect information about your business, including, without limitation, your (or your organization's) name, email address, street address, telephone number, tax identification number, and information about your website (e.g., the URL, the number of unique users and page views, the demographics of your user base, etc.). From time to time, we may also request personal information about you and your interests in surveys, contest entry forms, or in other ways. You may always choose not to provide us with your personal information; however, this may limit our ability to provide you with a specific product or service, or to offer you personalized content.

Non-Personal Information: When you visit our website, we also collect non-personal information, such as your IP address, which is a number that can be used to identify your location and Internet Service Provider. We may also collect the URL from which you came to our website and the URLs visited on our website. A URL is the full address of a website page, which may contain some personal or identifying information about the person who is viewing it.

Use of Cookies: We also use a feature of your browser called a cookie to assign identification to your computer. The unique user ID contained within your cookie automatically identifies your computer—but not you—to our servers every time you visit our Website. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user, but may be correlated with identity information in our log files. You can turn off the cookie feature by using your browser preference options, but you may not be able to utilize some services properly. Current versions of many web browsers offer enhanced user controls for the placement and duration of cookies. Search for "cookies" under your web browser's Help menu for more information on the cookie management features available to you.

Use of Pixel Tags: We also collect information through the use of "pixel tags" included in email messages we may send to you. Pixel tags are tiny graphic files, not visible to the human eye, that are included in HTML-encoded email messages. When such a message is opened in an HTML-capable email program, the recipient's computer will access our server to retrieve the pixel tag file, allowing us to record and store, along with the recipient's email address, the date and time the recipient viewed the email message, the fact that the recipient's email program is capable of receiving HTML-encoded email, and other standard logging information. The pixel tag also may see or read cookies.

Cookies: We may use cookie and IP address information to count and track website visits in the aggregate, to personalize the Website for each unique user, to control the frequency of individual advertisements to individual computers, and to target advertisements and promotions to broad demographic segments.
