Our Commitment To Privacy
Because Gebauer Company respects the privacy of our customers and partners, we make this notice available to everyone who visits our website. This notice has been made easily accessible by providing a link from every page on our main website and online web store. 

Because different laws govern different countries, this privacy notice is only valid for U.S. citizens living within the United States of America. We reserve the right to modify this notice at any time. Any changes to this notice will be posted on this page.

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the Gebauer Company website. Gebauer Company collects non-identifying technical data such as device characteristics, operating system, browser type, IP address, stored cookies from previous visits to our site, and site analytics cookies. We use this automatically collected data to analyze how our site is used so it can be optimized and help us to better respond to your inquiries. On some pages, you can order products, make requests, and register to receive materials. In addition, on some pages you can submit information about others. For example, if you order a product online and want it shipped to another recipient, you will need to submit the recipient's contact information. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:

  • Name, Company Name, and Position/Title 
  • Billing, Shipping, and Mailing Address

The Way We Use Information
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order and to provide marketing material directly related to Gebauer Company products. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

We use the information you provide about someone else when placing an order only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order. We may also use this information at a later date to provide marketing materials directly related to Gebauer Company products.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Your email address may be stored for internal marketing purposes. When you provide your email or other information such as job description, that information is utilized for internal marketing purposes. Gebauer Company will not sell your email address or information to any third party.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with customers. For example, we may tell a customer that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals. Finally, we do not use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Our Commitment To Data Security 
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. This includes the use of a secure web server to protect certain highly sensitive data while it is being transmitted to us. The security of your personal information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. We cannot guarantee against security breaches, including without limitation any that are associated with such public networks, or third-party products and services. If you believe your account has been abused, please contact us following the instructions in the Contact Us section below.

Our Commitment To Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. No part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13 and any information collected from children under the age of 13 is not maintained.

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information 
Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but often they offer instructions on how to manage, control, and delete cookies in the Help section of the toolbar. Third parties that perform site analytics have access to the analytics cookies, but use them only in the aggregate.

You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information other than that provided to our web store by sending us a request that credibly shows error. If you wish us to remove or change personal identification information that you have provided us, you may contact us at the contact information at the end of this Policy. To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.

California Residents

If you are a California Resident, you may have additional rights as a matter of California law under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) or California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) (either referred to here as “CCPA”).

You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
  • If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:
    • sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and
    • disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Further CCPA permits users of our website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
