Effective: February 14, 2020

Thank you for visiting our website. Burns Engineering, Inc. (“Burns” or “we” or “us”) values your privacy. This Privacy Policy is designed to protect any Personal Data (as defined below) you may share with us online through our website.

We act as controllers of your Personal Data in the areas and context covered by this Privacy Policy. Our contact details are set out at the end of this Privacy Policy.

Privacy

We created this Privacy Policy to tell you how we use your Personal Data. It is important to us that you understand how we will treat your Personal Data and that you are aware of your rights.

“Personal Data” means any piece of information which can be used to identify, directly or indirectly, an individual, but does not include data that is de-identified, anonymous, or publicly available.

Information We Collect and How We Use It

We collect personal information from you when you fill out a contact form on our website. In addition, our web servers and online forms take note of your IP address and web browser type. This information may be used for website analysis, to detect problems with our service, to administer our website, and to collect broad demographic information. Demographic information is gathered in aggregate only and cannot be traced to an individual user.

We do not sell, trade or disclose any Personal Data to outside parties.

We use Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Reports are generated on website usage and web traffic using various methods such as cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to collect or receive information from this website to provide other services and ads.

Cookies

We use cookies (small files which remember a user’s electronic device) to help improve our website, and improve our services to you, in a variety of different ways. Burns’ web servers may also set a session ID cookie that is used to allow our web servers to deliver information you request (e.g., search results). Session IDs cannot be traced to an individual person or customer name and are analyzed only in aggregate.

Our website uses Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager cookies for monitoring overall website usage levels.  Please note that you can adjust your web browser settings to block the use of cookies, although this may result in some parts of our website and other websites not being available to you. Your web browser may allow you to be notified when you are receiving a cookie, giving you the choice to accept it or not. You can use your web browser to determine which type of cookies you have allowed, and you can delete existing cookies (usually within your web browser’s Tools, Options or Privacy settings). Each web browser may have different cookie preferences, which can result in different cookies for each web browser. In addition, Google provides a Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on for web browsers, which prevents Google Analytics from collecting information about website visits.

Submitting contact information via our online contact form is voluntary. The contact form requires users to provide a name and an e-mail address.  We periodically send email newsletters about Burns  to persons who fill out the contact form and include an email address (e.g., company news, upcoming events, or other updates); visitors may opt-out of receiving these email newsletters by using the unsubscribe link contained in the e-mail.

Job Applicants

We collect and use the information you provide to us when submitting online applications for job vacancies or otherwise when you express your interest in joining our team. In such case, your Personal Data will be processed according to the stated privacy policy for UltiPro and Burns .

If you are selected for employment with Burns, your Personal Data will be further processed in accordance with the separate employee privacy policy enacted by Burns at the point of your employment.

Customer Feedback

Burns  stores feedback that customers send to us. This feedback is used to administer and refine our website, and, at times, may be shared with our affiliates either in aggregate form or with specific identifying characteristics (e.g., e-mail address, name) removed.

Protection of Children

Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that a subscriber is under the age of 13 and has signed up without prior verifiable parental consent, we will remove his or her personally identifiable information from our files.

EEA Residents Only

If you are a European Economic Area (EEA) resident, please note therefore that when you provide information to us (or a third party on our behalf) it may accordingly be accessed and used in countries outside of the EEA. In relation to such transfers, you acknowledge that you have been made aware that: (i) some countries outside the EEA provide levels of protection of Personal Data which are substantially inferior than those of countries within the EEA and (ii) in respect of such countries it is possible that this Personal Data might be intercepted and accessed by governmental and other authorities/agencies in those countries.

By submitting your Personal Data to us, you consent to this transfer, storing or processing.

Where your Personal Data is processed outside the EEA without your express consent (for example, to provide services to you or where we are mandated to do so at law), we are required to ensure a level of data protection at least as protective as those mandated by the EEA.

Off Website Links & Internet Usage

Burns  provides links to other websites. Burns  is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these websites. Using the internet to collect and process Personal Data necessarily involves the transmission of information on an international basis, given the global nature of these networks. By browsing our website and communicating electronically with us, you therefore acknowledge and agree to our processing of Personal Data in this way. The transmission of information via the internet is never completely secure and we accordingly cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use commercially reasonable and appropriate security measures to prevent your Personal Data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. In addition, our website may, from time to time, contain links to other websites which are outside of our control and are not covered by this Privacy Policy . We do not accept any responsibility or liability for other websites’ privacy notices or policies. If you access other websites using the links provided, please check their privacy policies before submitting any Personal Data.

Your Private Online Communications

Burns  believes that customer’s private communications in e-mail and other methods of communication should remain confidential. Burns  does not read or disclose private communications unless ordered to do so through a valid legal mechanism such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order, to protect the company’s rights and property, or during emergencies when we believe physical safety is at risk. Also, keep in mind that Burns  is not responsible for what other users may do with private communications you’ve had with them.

Keeping Your Personal Data Secure

We will put in place commercially reasonable and appropriate security measures to prevent your Personal Data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. We also limit access to your Personal Data to those employees, agents, third party service providers and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your Personal Data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
