Will you complete a short survey for us?

In the normal course of business, the Haws Corporation receives information from customers and others with whom we communicate. These communications can be on a wide variety of levels, including internet and other electronic communications, as well as via traditional print means, such as advertising reader response cards and physical product orders. It is the purpose of this privacy policy to establish our respect for the trust placed in us by people providing their personal and/or business information and to delineate the specific uses and limitations of use we place on information entrusted to us.

 

Information Collected

The specific information collected by Haws Corporation is strictly limited to the information you knowingly provide. Contact information provided when users register on our website, www.hawsco.com, is a good example. This information is used internally only, and is never sold or distributed in any manner to anyone outside of Haws Corporation. Our internal use is limited to efforts to assist you with obtaining information you might request from Haws Corporation, about our products and services.

 

Obviously, email communications you initiate with us will generate some internal data about how we might reply to you. Again, this information is used internally - only to the extent that will enable our response.

Web contacts and print publication leads, when generated by interested parties are followed up as a normal part of business operations. Once again, this information is held in the strictest of confidence.

Persons who contact us are sometimes asked to opt-in to our monthly e-newsletters for drinking fountains and electric water coolers, as well as emergency equipment. This opt-in authorization is used to communicate the requested information only and is ceased immediately in the event of a rescission of the opt-in authorization. E-newsletter recipient lists are treated with the same maximum security as all other customer and prospective customer information.

 

Last, but certainly not least, customer order information is strictly guarded. In addition to Haws Corporation employees, customer order information might be shared with Haws authorized independent representatives and distributors. In these instances, the information shared is strictly limited to the information you provided that is essential to fulfill your order or other request. Haws does not collect or accept customer or prospective customer information from any other sources.
