Last modified: October 20, 2017


Introduction

("Sika” or "We") respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this Policy. This Policy describes:

•    The types of information we may collect or that you may provide when you download, access, or use the Sika Every Day Toolbox Application (the "App").

•    Our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.

This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect in and through this App.  This Policy DOES NOT apply to information that We collect offline or on any other Sika apps or websites, including websites you may access through this App, nor does it apply to third party websites.  Each of these may have their own privacy policies, which we encourage you to read before providing information on or through them.

Please read this Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, do not download, register with, or use this App. By downloading, registering with, or using this App, you agree to this Privacy Policy. This Policy may change from time to time. Your continued use of this App after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Policy periodically for updates.

We collect information from and about users of our App:

•    Directly from you when you provide it to us.

When you download, register with, or use this App, we may ask you provide information:

•    By which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, email address and telephone number ("personal information").

•    That is about you but does not necessarily identify you, such as Sika account information.

This information includes:

•    Information that you provide by filling in forms in the App. This includes information provided at the time of registering to use the App, posting material, and requesting further services in connection with the App.
