John Crane Group Website Privacy & Cookies Policy

Our goal is to protect the privacy of your personal information and simultaneously provide you with the best possible experience on the John Crane Group ("John Crane") website. We will maintain the privacy of and protect your personal information in accordance with John Crane's confidentiality procedures and applicable law. John Crane shall retain the personal information collected on the John Crane website only as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or as permitted by applicable law.

Please read the following policy to understand how John Crane will treat user information when you use our website (the "Website").

Collection and Use of Personal Information

There are two ways we may collect and use information about you:

  1. Information you voluntarily provide

    John Crane collects information you voluntarily provide when you use the Website, some of which may be personal information. Information is user-provided information, which is entered and submitted by you via a Website form, template or page submission. This is done, for example, where a user is requesting additional John Crane information, registering for a John Crane training course, providing feedback or participating in a John Crane survey, etc.

    John Crane will use your information for the purposes for which you provide it and for which you give permission. For example, if you provide your email address and permission, John Crane would send you updates about John Crane products via the provided email address to deliver requested information. Any email updates sent to you by John Crane will contain an "unsubscribe" option in case you want to discontinue receiving email updates or alerts at any time.
  2. Information sent to us by your web browser

    Every time you visit the Website, we store computer-related details, such as your IP address, domain name, date and time of visit to the Website, etc., but not your email address unless you voluntarily provide it. This enables us to determine what you looked at, whether a page request was successful or not, and which browser your machine used to view the Website pages. The use of this data is primarily for obtaining statistical information and Website monitoring purposes. This data also helps John Crane evaluate the use and performance of the Website, and improve the content of the Website for subsequent Website users.
