Privacy Policy

Pratt & Whitney Measurement Systems has adopted the following policies to safeguard your personal information.

Our web site may contain links to other sites, and we make every effort to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy. However, we are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites.

Pratt & Whitney gathers three types of data about users: (a) company and personal information that individual users provide through registration; (b) tracking information, which is automatically collected about every visitor to our site; and (c) e-commerce transaction information.

Pratt & Whitney uses information obtained from its users to support user functionality on our site. As a general rule, we will not disclose any personal information to any third parties, except when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, to protect other users of Pratt & Whitney services, or to respond to an emergency. Information is also disclosed if the subscriber has given permission. Information may also be given to contractors or other agents, such as providers of certain services that Pratt & Whitney has chosen to outsource. Information will be shared with such contractors only to the extent reasonably necessary for them to perform services on our behalf, and pursuant to reasonable confidentiality obligations. Finally, if you partake, or we reasonably suspect that you are partaking, in any illegal activity, we may disclose your personal information without a subpoena, warrant or other court order to the extent we feel is necessary to cooperate with appropriate authorities.

A cookie is a small data file that certain web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you have visited. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Pratt & Whitney currently does not use cookies.

Tracking information is used by Pratt & Whitney to create aggregate reports on user demographics and site traffic patterns. None of the information can be connected to the identities or other personal information of individual users.

Pratt & Whitney uses reasonable security methods to protect the data that resides on our servers. However, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our servers, nor can we guarantee that information that users supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
