The following now provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit to our website.
We may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from 20th August 2019.
WHAT WE COLLECT
Gathering of non-Personally-Identifying InformationLike most website operators, AW Plant 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. The purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how visitors use the website. From time to time, AW Plant may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate (e.g. by publishing trend reports on the usage of the website).
AW Plant also collects potentially personally-identifying information (PII) like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. AW Plant 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 AW Plant 's website choose to interact with AW Plant in ways that require AW Plant to gather personally-identifying information (PII). The amount and type of information that AW Plant gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who wish to download our manuals to provide their email address. In each case, AW Plant collects such information insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor's interaction with AW Plant and to keep them updated when the manuals have changed. AW Plant does not disclose PII other than as described below. Visitors may always refuse to supply PII, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
HOW WE USE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
AGGREGATED STATISTICS AND REPORTS
AW Plant may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website, which may be used in public reports. As an example, AW Plant might reveal how many downloads a particular resource had, or what features are the most popular. AW Plant does not, however, disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
AW Plant discloses potentially personally-identifying information and personally-identifying information (PII) only to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that:

AW Plant will never rent or sell potentially personally-identifying information and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations as described above, AW Plant discloses potentially personally-identifying information and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when AW Plant believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of AW Plant, third parties, or the public at large.
If you are visitor at AW Plant and have supplied your email address, AW Plant may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new products and updates, solicit your feedback, or just to keep you up to date with what's going on with AW Plant and our products. We primarily use our news sections to communicate this kind of information, so we expect to keep this kind of email communication to a minimum.
If you send us a query via our live chat, we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request. AW Plant takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
