The Heico Companies Privacy Policy

 

PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE

 

The Heico Companies, LLC and its affiliated companies (“Heico”) respect your personal privacy and are committed to adhering to all applicable privacy and data protection laws. This Privacy Policy describes how Heico collects and uses the personal information that you provide to us on this Website (the “Website”). This policy applies only to the Heico Website and not to any third-party websites that may be accessible from this Website.

 

This Privacy Policy applies, in general, to all Websites operated by or on behalf of Heico and its business units worldwide. However, individual Heico sites may adopt a privacy policy for the purpose of that Heico site or the transactions taking place on that Heico site. These individual Heico sites may have additional terms, or separate agreements which supplement or supersede this Privacy Policy. Where the privacy terms of any site operated by a Heico business unit conflict with the terms set forth herein, the terms of the business unit site shall control.

 

By using Heico’s Website or providing personally identifiable information about you to us, you are consenting to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal identifiable information described in this Privacy Policy.

 

If you do not consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy, do not use the Heico Website.

 

 

Information We May Collect

Active Information Collection: Like many websites, we collect information from our visitors from various means, including by asking specific questions on this Website, by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail, and by allowing you to apply for employment. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc.). When you visit the Website, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily.

 

Passive Information Collection: Some of the information we collect depends on the settings on your web browser. Please check your web browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings. In addition to the information sent by your web browser, as you navigate through internet websites, certain information may be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means. These technologies include but are not necessarily limited to the following:

 

  1. Cookies: From time to time, we may place information on your computer to allow us to identify you. This information is known as a “cookie” and uniquely identifies your browser and helps us enhance your navigation through the Website. A cookie may also convey anonymous information about how you browse the Website to us. A cookie does not collect personal information about you. By understanding how and when our visitors use the Site, we can continually improve our Site, as well as our products and services. If you wish to disable cookies, your browser can be reset to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent.
  2. Tracers: In some instances, we use tracking scripts or “tracers” that recognize a unique identifier from a cookie placed on your hard drive by another website. These are used by Heico to gauge the success of our own advertising. We do not use tracers to gather information on your use of the internet unrelated to your interest in Heico. Please note that Heico does not use tracers to determine your personally identifiable information, and you remain anonymous.
  3. Web beacons: Heico reserves the right to use electronic images known as web beacons, also referred to as single-pixel gifs, and any other successor technology, that permit us to count users who have visited certain Website pages and for other related statistics (e.g., recording the popularity of certain Website content and verifying system and server integrity).

 

 

How We Use Your Information

Heico uses the actively collected information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Website, to provide information and services, and to help us better understand your needs and interests. Heico collects personally identifiable information only when it is reasonably related to your use of the Website or participation in the activities we offer. For example, if you provide your resume to Heico for purposes of obtaining employment, the resume will be used for activities related to your potential employment.

 

Passive information collected by Heico is not used to access your personally identifiable information. This information may be used to compile aggregated statistics concerning the use of this Website, such as determining what areas of the Website are most popular, which areas may require improvement, and what technologies are being used by our visitors. This information may also be used for security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches, to protect Heico from fraud, and to provide you with a safe online environment.

 

 

Limitations on the Disclosure of Personal Information

Heico will take appropriate measures to provide adequate protection for personally identifiable information that is provided. While Heico tries to prevent third party, non-affiliate access to personally identifiable information, you should keep in mind that data transmission over the Internet is not 100% secure and any information disclosed online can potentially be collected and used other than by the intended recipient. In view of the foregoing, Heico cannot guarantee that your personally identifiable information will not be accessed by parties other than those authorized under this Privacy Policy.

 

Heico does not share your personally identifiable information with other, third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use. Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, Heico will not disclose personally identifiable information to any third party unless required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law, comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities; (b) to take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, or to protect the security or integrity of our Website; and (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Heico, its employees, agents or assigns, or others.

 

We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for the Website.

 

We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of Heico (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).

 

To the extent required by applicable law, whenever Heico collects personally identifiable information on the Heico Website, Heico will:

 

  1. provide timely and appropriate notice to you about its data practices herein;
  2. collect, use, disclose and transfer your personally identifiable information only with your consent, which may be express or implied, depending on the sensitivity of the personally identifiable information, legal requirements, and other factors;
  3. collect your personally identifiable information only for specific, limited purposes. The information we collect will be relevant, adequate and not excessive for the purposes for which it is collected;
  4. process your personally identifiable information in a manner consistent with the purposes for which it was originally collected or to which you have subsequently consented;
  5. take commercially reasonable steps to ensure that your personally identifiable information is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and, where necessary, kept up-to-date;
  6. not use your personally identifiable information for direct marketing purposes without giving you an opportunity to “opt-out”; and
  7. take appropriate measures, by contract or otherwise, to provide adequate protection for personally identifiable information that is disclosed to a third party or transferred to another country, including transfers within Heico.

Heico retains the personally identifiable information collected on the Website as long as necessary to provide the services, products and information you request or as permitted by applicable law.
