Kapsch TrafficCom’s Privacy Practices on the Web

Your privacy is important to Kapsch TrafficCom (Hereinafter "KTC"). This statement discloses the information practices for KTC’s Web sites, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.

To return to the Site, please use the "Back" button on your browser or close this window.

Personal information

Generally, you can visit KTC on the Internet without telling us who you are and without giving any personal information about yourself. There are times, however, when we or our partners may need information from you.

You may choose to give us personal information in a variety of situations. For example, you may want to give us information, such as your name and address or e-mail id, to correspond with you. You may give us a description of your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at KTC that you wish to be considered for. We intend to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you; if you tell us that you do not want us to use this information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your requests, we will respect your wishes. If you give us personal information about somebody else, such as a spouse or work colleague, we will assume that you have their permission to do so.

Using and Sharing Personal Information

The following paragraphs describe in more detail how KTC may use your personal information and with whom we may share it. Depending on the type of KTC Web site you are visiting, one or more of the paragraphs may apply. For example, if you order a product from an KTC Web site, your information will be handled as described in such paragraphs as Fulfilling Your Transaction Request and Marketing Use.

Fulfilling your transaction request

If you request something from a KTC Web site, for example, a product or service, a callback, or specific marketing materials, we will use the information you provide to fulfill your request. To help us do this, we may share information, with others, for instance, other parts of KTC, KTC's Business Partners, financial institutions, shipping companies, postal or government authorities (for example, customs authorities) involved in fulfillment. In connection with a transaction we may also contact you as part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.

If you choose to “Email This Page” to a friend or colleague, we will ask for their name and email address. We will automatically send a one-time email sharing the page you indicated. KTC does not store this information.

Marketing Use

The information you provide to KTC on certain KTC Web sites may also be used by KTC and selected third parties for marketing purposes. Before we use it, however, we will offer you the opportunity to choose whether or not to have your information used in this way. To opt-out of receiving further marketing emails from KTC, please follow the unsubscribe instructions included in each email.

KTC Human Resources Web Sites (including Recruitment)

In connection with a job application or inquiry, whether advertised on a KTC Web site or otherwise, you may provide us with information about yourself, such as a resume or curriculum vitae. We may use this information throughout KTC and its related entities for the purpose of employment consideration or your inquiry. Except where you tell us not to, we will keep the information for future consideration.

Information for Business Partners

If you represent a KTC Business Partner, you may visit a KTC Web site intended specifically for KTC Business Partners. We may use information provided on that site to administer and develop our business relationship with you, the Business Partner you represent, and KTC Business Partners generally. For instance, this may involve using your information to send you details of KTC Business Partner programs. It may also include sharing certain information with other Business Partners (subject to any confidentiality obligations that may exist), or KTC customers or prospects. In connection with a particular transaction or program, we may also contact you as part of customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.

KTC Supplier Administration

If you represent a KTC supplier, you may visit an KTC Web site intended specifically for use by KTC suppliers. We may use the information provided on that site in connection with entering into or performing a transaction with you. For example, this may include sharing information with other parts of KTC, KTC's Business Partners, customers, shipping companies, financial institutions, postal or government authorities involved in fulfillment. It may also be used to administer and develop our relationship with you, the supplier you represent and/or other KTC suppliers generally.

Use of Information in the Social Computing Environment

KTC provides social computing tools on some of its Web sites to enable online sharing and collaboration among members who have registered to use them. These include forums, wikis, blogs and other social media platforms.

When registering to use these tools, you will be asked to provide certain personal information to KTC. Registration information which is not automatically made available to other participants as part of your profile will be subject to and protected in accordance with this privacy statement.

Any other content you post, such as pictures, information, opinions, or any other type of personal information which you make available to other participants on these social platforms, is not subject to this privacy statement. Such content is rather subject to the Terms of Use of these platforms, and any additional guidelines and privacy information provided in relation to their use. Please refer to them to better understand yours, KTC's, and other parties' rights and obligations with regard to such content. In addition, you should be aware that the content you post on any such social computing platforms may be made broadly available to others inside and outside KTC.

Other KTC Web Site Notices

In some cases, specific KTC Web sites may contain other notices about their use and the information practices applicable to those sites.

Our Worldwide Practices

KTC is a global organization, with legal entities, business processes, management structures, and technical systems that cross borders.

Our privacy practices are designed to provide protection for your personal information, all over the world.

We may share your personal information within KTC and transfer it to countries in the world where we do business.

Some countries may provide less legal protection for your information. In such countries KTC will still handle information in the manner we describe here.

Information Security and Quality

We intend to protect your personal information and to maintain its quality. We implement appropriate measures and processes, such as using encryption when transmitting certain sensitive information, to help us to keep your information secure and to maintain its quality.

Supplementing Information

From time to time we may supplement information you give us via a KTC Web site with information from other sources, such as information validating your address or other available information about businesses. This is to help us maintain the accuracy of the information we collect and to help us provide a better service.

Use of Suppliers

In some cases KTC uses suppliers to collect, use, analyze and otherwise process information on its behalf. It is KTC's practice to require such suppliers to handle information in a manner consistent with KTC's policies.

Mergers and Acquisitions

Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other business reasons, KTC decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize businesses in some countries. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or receiving it from sellers. It is KTC’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.

Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Technologies

We sometimes collect non-identifiable information from visits to our Web sites to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, and we also measure visitor activity on KTC Web sites, but we do so in ways that keep the information non-identifiable. This information is sometimes known as "clickstream data." KTC or others on KTC's behalf may use this data to analyze trends and statistics and to help us provide better customer service.

Also, when we collect personal data from you in a transaction, we may extract some information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level. If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner you can disable your cookies.

We collect the information we mentioned in the previous paragraphs through the use of various technologies, including one called "cookies". A cookie is a piece of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as an anonymous tag that identifies your computer but not you. Some KTC pages use cookies, sent by KTC or its third party vendors, or other technologies to better serve you when you return to the Web site. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, some Web sites may not work properly.

Some KTC Web sites also use Web beacon or other technologies to better tailor those sites to provide better customer service. These technologies may be in use on a number of pages across KTC's Web sites. When a visitor accesses these pages, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by us or by our suppliers. These Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If you don't want your cookie information to be associated with your visits to these pages, you can set your browser to turn off cookies.

Some of our business partners (e.g., advertisers) use cookies on our site. We have no access to or control over these cookies. See "Online Advertising."

If you turn off cookies, Web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other non-identifiable cookie information and are disregarded. Cookies can be used to provide you with tailored information from a Web site. A cookie is an element of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system. Some KTC pages use cookies so that we can better serve you when you return to our site. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. Please consult your browser for specific information on the browser settings.

Service Quality Monitoring

Certain Web transactions may also involve you calling us or our calling you. Please be aware that it is KTC's general practice to monitor and in some cases record such calls for staff training or quality assurance purposes.

Online Advertising

Certain companies help us deliver interactive on-line advertising such as banner ads. These companies may collect and use information about customers to help us better understand the offers, promotions, and types of advertising that are most appealing to our customers. After it is collected the information is aggregated so it is not identifiable to a specific individual. If, however, you would prefer that these companies not collect such information, please visit www.networkadvertising.org and follow the "opt-out" instructions.

Personalized URL Link

On occasion, we may personalize and customize Web sites for certain visitors. If you visit one of these sites, you may find it customized with references to products and/or services that we believe may be of interest to you, based on your previous interactions with KTC and information you have provided to us. While you are visiting these Web sites, we may collect information about your visit to better tailor the site to your interests. An invitation to visit one of these Web sites is usually presented as a personalized URL in an e-mail,> a notice on a Web site registration page, or as a response to you logging on to a certain Web site.

If you choose to visit one of these Web sites, you are agreeing to let KTC collect information about your visits and also to its association with other information about you and your relationship with KTC. If you do not wish your information to be used in this way, do not accept the invitation to visit these sites.

Disclosures Required By Law

Please be aware that in certain circumstances, it is possible that personal information may be subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or orders.

Privacy Technology

Technology will increasingly help give you more control over your personal information. It will also help organizations to manage their privacy practices and policies. As an information technology provider, KTC actively supports the development of privacy technologies to help achieve these goals and to help create greater trust and confidence in the way personal information is handled.

Other products and services are available which can assist you with the control of your personal information while navigating the Web. See www.privacyalliance.org/resources/rulesntools for an overview of many privacy-related tools. Please note that KTC has not formally evaluated these tools.

Links to non-KTC Web sites

KTC Web sites may contain links to other Web sites. KTC is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those other Web sites.
