What we track

WHAT WE TRACK
Our website’s and Applications’ registration forms require you to give us contact information (like your first name, last name, language of preference and email address), demographic information (like your address and zip code), and your professional interest information (like industry and profession). Panduit retains this information for use only as specified in this privacy policy. The personal information you provide to Panduit may be transmitted and stored in a country other than the one that the information was submitted in.

When you download and use a Panduit Application, we automatically collect information on the type of device you use, operating system version, and the device identifier (or "UDID"). This information is used to give us an idea of what devices are preferred by our users when using Panduit Applications.

When using our Applications we may collect your location-based information. We will only share this information with our mapping provider for the sole purpose of providing you the service. If you no longer wish to allow us to use your location-based information, you may turn it off at the device level at any time.

Our sites use cookies to keep track of your visits to www.panduit.com. We use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests each time you visit. While these activities depend on the use of a cookie, visitors to the Panduit websites always have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences.

Panduit also collects IP addresses for system administration and to report aggregate information on users to the sites. We combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve the services we offer you, including our marketing, use of analytics and site functionality.

We use Local Storage Objects (LSOs) such as HTML5 to store content information and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our site or to display advertising based upon your web browsing activity use LSOs such as HTML 5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LSOs. Technologies such as: cookies, beacons, tags and scripts are used by Panduit, our marketing partners, analytics partners and service providers. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.

We partner with a third party to either display advertising on our website or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partner may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on these sites and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking here (or if located in the European Union click here) Please note this does not opt you out of being served ads. You will continue to receive generic ads.
 

What we do with the information we gather

WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION WE GATHER

We analyze traffic patterns throughout the Panduit sites to highlight popular areas, and to improve the sections, which are not meeting the needs of our users.

We may occasionally use customer contact information and professional interest information from the registration form to send email announcements about our new products or services and to contact you if there are any changes to the site that will affect your user experience. We may also use email addresses collected from our Applications to send you information regarding relevant products, solutions and services.
