Last Updated:  February 2017
This Privacy Policy explains how information about you is collected, used, disclosed and otherwise processed by ESCO Corporation and its subsidiaries and affiliated companies acting as a data controller for the purpose of applicable data protection law (collectively, “we”, “our” or “us”). 
This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect about you when you use our equipment, tools, devices, websites, mobile applications and other online products and services provided by us (collectively, the “Services”), or when you otherwise interact with us. Some of this information may be personal information as it may be information about you.
Where we need your consent to the collection, use, disclosure, transfer or other processing of your personal information (as described in this Privacy Policy), you provide such consent by accessing and using the Services. If you do not consent to such processing then do not further access or use the Services. Where we need a specific consent to a particular form of processing, such as the use of your information for marketing, we will obtain such consent in the manner described in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise required by law.
We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time.  If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as by adding a statement to our homepage or by sending you a notification).  We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy whenever you access the Services to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy. Your continued use of the Services after such changes have been notified will constitute your consent to those changes.
