Legal Disclaimer


This Privacy Policy was last revised on and is effective as of June 13, 2012.

The web site located at http://www.southwire.ca/ (the "Site") is owned and operated by Southwire Company ("Southwire"). At Southwire, we recognize the importance of privacy to you and are firmly committed to protecting your privacy when you visit the Site and provide information to us. As a result, we have instituted this website privacy policy ("Privacy Policy"). Southwire is providing this notice to explain how we collect, use, disclose and protect the personal information you submit to us. This Privacy Policy applies only to the use and collection of data collected by the Site and does not apply to any other data collected by us online or offline.

In general, you may visit the Site and view its content while remaining anonymous by not providing any personal information. By visiting and using the Site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and, if you provide us your personal information, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not provide us any information and do not use the Site.

As used in this Privacy Policy, "we," "our" and "us" means Southwire and its affiliates.


Why does Southwire ask me to register to use parts of the Southwire Website?

In order to use certain services provided on or through the Site and view certain non-public portions of the Site that contain our proprietary business information, you must register with us, which will entail your disclosure and transmission of certain information about you. In connection with your registration, or at any time after registering, you may "opt-out" or unsubscribe from receiving any promotional communications from us by following the unsubscribe instructions on the Site.


What information does Southwire collect when I visit Southwire.ca?

If you register with us, we may collect certain personal information provided by you, such as your name, address, telephone number, mailing address, e-mail address, and certain other personal and demographic information about you.


Our Site may also collect non-identifiable information that becomes available to us as a result of your visit to our Site. This information includes, for example, your IP address (a number automatically assigned to your computer when you visit the Site, and which is logged by our servers), your Internet Service Provider ("ISP"), your web browser, the type of operating system, the domain name of the website which links you to our Site, the pages you visited, the average time spent on the Site, and the products searched for on the Site.

We also collect the email addresses of those who send us email messages.


What does Southwire do with collected information?

Because we are very interested in the successful dissemination of information through the Site, we will review visitor trends recorded on certain log files. In connection with such log files, analysis software will be used to generate reports that will allow us to determine how we can enhance your experience with our Site. This information will not be used to ascertain your identity or the substance of what you are viewing. The log files may be purged periodically, in our discretion, to maximize space on the server.


Collection of Personally Identifying Information from or about Children.

Southwire does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under the age 13 may provide any personal information to Southwire. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under the age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at webmaster@southwire.com.


Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Information

The information we learn from visitors helps us personalize and improve the Site and products that we offer through the Site. We use your information for the following purposes:

Establishment and maintenance of our relationship with you, including communicating with you from time to time about us and various products that we offer; responding to your requests, inquiries and orders; meeting legal, regulatory, insurance, security and processing requirements; and otherwise with your consent.

Southwire may engage third parties to manage the Site and provide other services in connection with the Site, such as the collection and analysis of data. Such third parties may have access to certain personal information you provide as necessary for the provision of such services on behalf of Southwire; provided, however, all such third parties shall be required to protect such personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

If you or your company make a product purchase, your transaction may be handled by a third party, not Southwire, and is subject to the policies and procedures (including privacy policy) established by the third party.

We will not trade, rent, share or sell personal information, survey responses, or any other specific details about you or your organization, with unaffiliated third parties (including direct marketing firms), except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, unless we have requested and obtained your consent.

We may from time to time use cookies on our Site. Cookies are small text files that your web browser leaves on your hard drive to recognize you as a repeat user of our Site, track your use of our Site and target advertising. This allows for personalization of certain aspects of your visit to our Site. Information gathered from cookies in this way is only used on an aggregate basis. Unless a visitor specifically provides their identity to us, e.g., by registering at our Site, providing information through an online form or sending us correspondence from the Site, we will not know the identification of individual visitors. We may use cookies to store preferences; record session information; develop information about Site visitors' preferences and interests; record past activity at a website in order to provide better service when you return to our Site; or customize web page content based on information you voluntarily provide.

What about Website security?

Your Southwire account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. While we strive to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third parties from intercepting this information. You should not assume or expect that any communication that you transmit to us (such as personally identifiable or other data, questions or answers, comments, or suggestions) is confidential. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. Southwire will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication. Southwire, any third parties providing services in connection with the Site, and their respective internet service providers shall not be liable or responsible if any information about you is intercepted and used by an unintended recipient.

In certain areas, Southwire uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions. Most current browsers support the level of security needed to use these areas.
