Privacy Policy

Ted Pella, Inc. respects the privacy of our customers. We are committed to building customer trust by demonstrating this respect in every aspect of serving our customers. The pledge below summarizes our promise to you.

As also required by California law, this policy is a disclosure of the personal data that can be gathered about consumers who visit this website.

This page was also created to meet the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) of the European Union.

Definitions

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy:

“Customer Profile” means a unique account created for you to place orders on our web site, manage your profile information, or use other services regarding our web site.

“Company” (referred to as “the Company”, either "We", "Us" or "Our" in this Agreement) refers to Ted Pella, Inc., located at 4595 Mountain Lakes Blvd, Redding, CA 96003, USA.

“Cookies” are small files that are placed on your computer, mobile device or any other device by your browser and our website, containing certain details of your browsing history on that website.

“Device” means any device that can access the website such as a computer, cellphone or a digital tablet.

“Data” includes all the information gathered to support the inquiry, quoting or order placement process.

“Service Provider” means any natural or legal entity who processes the data on behalf of the Company. It refers to third-party companies or individuals employed by the Company to facilitate the Service, to provide the Service on behalf of the Company, to perform services related to the Service or to assist the Company in analyzing how the Service is used.

“Usage Data” refers to data collected automatically, either generated by the use of the Service or from the Service infrastructure itself (for example, the duration of a visit to a web page).

“Website” refers to www.tedpella.com.

“You” and “Your” and “they” means the individual accessing or using the website, or the Company, or other legal entity on behalf of which such individual is accessing or using the website, as applicable.

“Personal Data” is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual.

No personal data is gathered from consumers who do not place an order on this site with the exception of when a consumer requests information or a quote. Domain registration, IP address, computer type and browser type is captured and is not considered personal data. This information is aggregated and used internally for statistical analysis of visitor activity and usage trends. This information may also be used, at the visitor's request, to provide technical support. When requesting information or a quote, personal data is collected in order to send the requested information back to the consumer.

How Data Is Used

When a site visitor elects to set up a Customer Profile for themselves, personal data is collected for the purpose of being used later in placing an order. This includes name, address, email address and phone number.  This is the same information typically requested when placing an order by other methods. This information is collected via a form protected by a current version of the internet security standard Transport Layer Security ("TLS") protocol. Credit card numbers are not collected at that point and are not stored online for web access at any time; social security numbers and driver license numbers are never collected. The collected information is protected by an ID and password chosen by the consumer, with a certain level of security constraint enforced. If a consumer wishes to change or remove the personal that they set up, they merely have to log in and change all relevant fields. If they wish to delete the Profile entirely, a call may be placed to the company to request that be done.

When placing an order, personal data is gathered. If the consumer has a pre-existing Customer Profile and logs in using that, the personal data in the Profile is used along with any changes made by the consumer. If the consumer does not have a Customer Profile, personal data is gathered at the time of order placement as already described above, and used for the purpose of processing the order.

A cookie which is used during the order process may temporarily contain personal data during the ordering process. It is deleted at the completion of order, or when the consumer leaves the web site. The consumer can turn their cookie functionality off, but that would prevent an online order from being placed.

Personal data that is submitted for the purpose of placing an order, requesting information or a quote is held in strictest confidence. It may be used later for our own company mailings to you but is never shared, sold, rented or otherwise revealed to any third party. Personal data may be removed from the mailing list by sending an email requesting removal or calling the company to make such a request. The only exception would be when ordered to do so by a US court of law.

Credit card transactions are not processed online. Credit card information is never shared with any third party except the merchant service processing the transaction. Credit card numbers are only collected online as part of a credit card sale. TLS protocol is used with the order form containing the credit card, and this information is sent back to the company in an industry-standard digitally-encrypted format. Credit card information is used only for the order for which the consumer authorizes its use.

At no time do we disclose personal data to third parties except to transmit credit card information to merchant services via encrypted internet communication for authorization and payment processing for credit card orders placed by consumers.
