Our collection of information
Information collected directly from you. In general, you can visit Aube's website without entering any personal information. However, on certain pages, we may ask you for personal information to provide a service or carry out a transaction that you have requested. The personal information we collect may include your name, title, company or organization name, e-mail address, telephone number, work or home address, information about your job function, information about your company, information about your product purchases, account information (including credit card information), and information that allows us to determine your eligibility under export control regulations to receive information about certain technologies. We may also collect feedback from you about our websites. You do not have to provide this information, but if you do not, we may not be able to provide you the requested service or complete the transaction.
Information collected automatically. We collect information about your visit to our site, including what pages you view, the links you click, the materials you access, and other actions taken within Aube’s site. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser type and language, the date and time you access the site, and the website from which you linked to our site. We do not connect this information to your identity.
Our use of information
Services and transactions. We use your personal information to deliver services or carry out transactions you have requested, such as providing information on Aube products, registering purchased products, processing product orders, handling warranty claims, replacing product manuals, answering customer service requests, and so forth. In order to offer you a more consistent experience in your interactions with Aube, information collected by our websites may be combined with information we collect by other means.
Website improvement. We may use your personal information to improve our website and related Aube products or services, or to make our website easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information or by customizing our website to your particular preference or interests.

When collecting information that might be used to contact you about our products and services, we will always give you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving such communications. Moreover, each e-mail communication we send includes an unsubscribe link allowing you to stop delivery of that type of communication.
Employee recruitment. In connection with a job application or inquiry, you may provide us with information about yourself, such as a resume or curriculum vitae. We may use this information throughout Aube and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates for the purpose of employment consideration. Except where you tell us not to, we will keep the information for future consideration.

We use them to track the number of times you have visited the site, the number of visitors to the site, to determine and analyze visitors’ use of our sites (including the effectiveness of online advertising), and to store information that you provide such as your preferences. We may use session cookies (cookies that are deleted when you leave our site) to store your user ID, elements of your user profile, and other information useful in administering the session. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies or to notify you when a cookie is being placed on your computer.

Disclosure to service providers. Aube contracts with other companies to provide services on our behalf, such as hosting websites, sending out information, processing transactions, and analyzing our websites. We provide these companies with only those elements of your personal information they need to deliver those services. These companies and their employees are prohibited from using that personal information for any other purpose.
Disclosure for other reasons. We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with legal requirements or with legal process served on us, to protect and defend our rights or property, or in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of any individual.
Aube is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
