Please read this policy carefully as it sets out how we collect and use your personal data. If you have any questions about this policy or do not agree with it, please do not use this site. You can instead contact us using the contact details at the end of this policy. By using this site, you agree to be bound by this policy, as supplemented or modified by any supplemental privacy policy or site-specific privacy terms that are posted on a particular site or are specifically agreed to in a separate document with the relevant site operator.

PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT


In general, you can visit our site without giving us any information. If you are one of our anonymous visitors, please bear in mind that we may still:

We do this by using Cookies. Please see below for more information about Cookies.

If you email us through the “Contact Us” link on this site, we may ask you for information such as your name, email address and telephone number so we can respond to your questions and comments. You may choose to provide additional information as well.

We may also collect information anonymously with the aid of a 'Pop Up Survey´. Pop Up Surveys are windows that appear as you navigate our site and that request you to submit information concerning your views on our site or other information that helps us in determining how to improve it. Information requested through Pop Up Surveys is not personally identifiable unless you volunteer personal information in your response. What we mean by 'anonymously´ in this policy is that we will not use the IP address of your computer, which is sent to our systems when you connect to this site or submit data, to personally identify you.

Additional services may be available if you register with the site. In this case, once you register, your activities on the site and information about your computer may be linked on our systems to you. The types of information we may request are:

We may also retain copies of any correspondence you send us and we will keep details of your registration history with us.

HOW WE USE PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT

The main reason we use your personal data is to assist us in providing you with information about our products and services (whether available via the site or offline). We also use the information for:

PERSONAL DATA WE SHARE AND/OR TRANSFER

We may disclose your personal data (and any other data submitted to us via this site) to our affiliates. We may also share your personal data with companies performing services on our behalf (such as web services providers or courier services) who will only use the information to provide that service. 

We may also need to disclose your personal data to others upon request of law enforcement authorities (e.g. such as the police) or when required to do so by law or legal process. We may also share your personal data with third parties when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

We may transfer your personal data or other information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (or in connection with a potential sale of our business or assets). Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use personal data you have provided through this site in a manner that is consistent with this policy.

HOW TO GET COPIES OF OR AMEND THE PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT

You may request details of personal data which we hold about you. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please contact us.

If you think any information we have about you is incorrect or incomplete, please contact us as soon as possible. We will correct or update any information as soon as possible.

HOW WE PROTECT PERSONAL DATA 

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. 

However, please remember that internet communications are not secure. We do not use encryption tools in connection with this site and cannot accept responsibility for the unauthorised access by a third party and/or the corruption of data sent by you to us during transmission. If you are providing us with confidential data, you should consider sending such data by post or other secure means. 

Due to the global nature of GE, it may be necessary to send your personal data to countries which have a different standard of data protection than the country in which you are situated. We have put in place protections to ensure that your information is safeguarded. 

PHISHING 

Phishing is the name given to attempts to steal personal details and financial account details from a website user. “Phishers” use fake or “spoof” emails to lead users to counterfeit websites where the user is misled into entering their personal details, such as credit card numbers, user names and passwords. 

If you do receive such an email or are asked for your password or user identification number by anyone claiming to work for GE please forward the email or report the incident by contacting us. 

NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION 

We collect certain aggregate and non-personal information when you visit this site. Aggregate and non-personal information does not relate to a single identifiable visitor. It tells us such things as how many users visited our site and the pages accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our site to our visitors. We collect this information either through “cookie” technology or with “web beacons,” as explained below.
