Your privacy is critically important to us.
Seymour Midwest LLC. operates several websites including SeymourMfg.com, Structron.com, and MidwestRake.com. It is Seymour Midwest’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Seymour Midwest collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Seymour Midwest’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Seymour Midwest’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Seymour Midwest may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Seymour Midwest also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Seymour Midwest does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Seymour Midwest’s websites choose to interact with Seymour Midwest in ways that require Seymour Midwest to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Seymour Midwest gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who register as a member to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Seymour Midwest are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Seymour Midwest collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Seymour Midwest. Seymour Midwest does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Seymour Midwest may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Seymour Midwest may monitor the most popular pages on our websites or use spam screened to help identify spam. Seymour Midwest may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Seymour Midwest does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Seymour Midwest discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Seymour Midwest’s behalf or to provide services available at Seymour Midwest’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Seymour Midwest’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Seymour Midwest will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Seymour Midwest discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Seymour Midwest believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Seymour Midwest, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Seymour Midwest website and have supplied your email address, Seymour Midwest may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Seymour Midwest and our products. We primarily use our blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Seymour Midwest takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
