Date of last Revision: Sep 19, 2011

Welcome to www.noritz.com (this "Site"), operated by Noritz America Corporation, a California corporation ("Noritz"). This Privacy Policy is designed to explain Noritz's policies and procedures regarding personal information collected on this Site.

 

1. PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION COLLECTED.

We collect personally identifiable information from you in a number of ways when you visit this Site, including when you request a quote, make an online purchase or complete the online Contact Form.  Such personally identifiable information may include your name, street address, email address, phone number, fax number and any other contact or demographic information which, when used by itself or with other data, might identify you individually ("Personally Identifiable Information").  Noritz may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with information collected on the Site.

 

2. COOKIES.

As part of offering and improving Noritz's products and/or services, Noritz may also automatically collect certain information through the use of "cookies."  A cookie is a small data file stored on your hard drive by a website.  Among other things, cookies help us improve our Site and your experience by saving statuses and preferences.  Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user, but if we link cookies to personal information, we will treat the information collected by the cookies as Personally Identifiable Information.  Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but users can change their settings to refuse browser cookies or to be alerted when browser cookies are being sent.  Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of the Site.
