This Privacy Notice applies to all information collected by Sciton.
Sciton collects personal information from e-mails, faxes, telephone inquiries, correspondence, web forms, surveys, and other means of communication. We collect such information when you agree to purchase or order or avail yourself of goods or services, registration for a service (e.g. user groups, seminars, and trade shows), to track warranty rights and obligations, to provide product information, and other lawful purposes.

We honor “Do Not Track” requests to the extent a user activates a “do not track” tool through his or her web browser, but otherwise, Sciton does not have a separate program or plug-in.
We obtain the requisite consent prior to collecting and, in any case, prior to using or disclosing your personal information for any purpose. You may provide your consent to us orally, in writing, by electronic communication, or any other means reasonably capable of conveying your consent.

In certain circumstances, as permitted or required by law, we may collect, use, or disclose personal information without your knowledge or consent. These circumstances include (where applicable) information about individuals that is publicly available, where collection or use is clearly in the interests of the individual and consent cannot be obtained in a timely way, to investigate a breach or a contravention of a law, to comply with a subpoena, warrant, court order, or as required or otherwise permitted by law.
