Data privacy

IPTE Factory Automation n.v.

IPTE makes every effort to honor the preferences of our Web site users concerning the collection and use of personally identifiable information. This statement describes how IPTE collects and uses personally identifying information of visitors to our Web sites.

This privacy statement covers the following sites operated by IPTE: and other IPTE sites that can be accessed through our main site. We encourage you to take the time to read this privacy statement and those of any Website you visit.

What Information is collected?

In general, when you visit our Websites and access information, you will remain anonymous.
For some services provided through our Websites, we will ask you to register using online registration forms. A registration form will ask for information both about the company to be registered and the individual employees who will use our online services as representatives of the company. For some Web site services, you will be asked to provide a password and user identification, including citizenship country. This information is collected to confirm eligibility for use of the online services, to establish the identity of the company and authorized users, to provide compliance with export control regulations and for business contact purposes.

Some services available on our Websites involve the purchase (or sale) by Web site visitors of IPTE equipment or parts. If you elect to engage in transaction opportunities on our Web sites, you will be asked to provide information necessary to facilitate transactions such as shipping address and payment instructions.

IPTE does not collect information about your use of our Websites nor what browser you are using nor your IP address.

IPTE does not use cookies on its Websites.

If you choose to post messages in message areas or to provide feedback or send an e-mail to us, we may keep a record of that posting or correspondence. Information you disclose in a public message area will naturally be available to and shared with other visitors to our Web sites.

How We Use Information?

IPTE may use your information for its own marketing purposes. This may include providing you with information targeted to your interests. We will give you the opportunity to elect not to receive direct-marketing materials from us. IPTE does not sell any personally identifiable information.

When you place an order or make an offer to participate in a transaction opportunity, we will use your personally identifiable information to facilitate the transaction.
The primary use of your information is to enable IPTE to deliver specific services or products you request or to complete a transaction initiated by you. During the course of completing a transaction initiated by you, IPTE may provide your contact or other information to a trading partner or other party to the transaction (e.g., financier or bank transferring funds).

IPTE may provide third parties with personal data received or processed for generally accepted business purposes, subject to this privacy statement, and as required by law or when we believe such disclosure is necessary in connection with a judicial proceeding, to comply with an applicable court order, subpoena, law or regulation, or to protect our property or assert our legal rights.

Again, information you disclose in a public forum will naturally be public and available to other visitors to our Websites. To the extent you disclose your information to other parties, their use of the information will not be subject to this privacy statement.

Applicant Data

IPTE may use the information that you provide and any other information which is subsequently provided (the “Information”) in considering you for a specific position and/or other available positions at any IPTE location. Your Information will remain active and may be kept on record for a limited period of time as required by law.

Your Information is stored on a server in the Belgium, and duplicated on a server in Germany,  and is visible to all IPTE locations globally, including countries where laws may not protect data privacy to the same extent as laws in the country or region in which you live. If your submission is considered for employment, it will be used for these purposes only and normally considered primarily in locations where the position(s) is available.
If you become or currently are an IPTE employee, your Information will be retained in individual employment records kept by IPTE. Such Information will be used in administering benefits and performing IPTEs contractual and other legal obligations.

By submitting your Information, you acknowledge and agree that IPTE will retain such Information for the purposes mentioned above and consent to such use.

Data Security

IPTE uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. Unfortunately, it is impossible to absolutely guarantee the security of data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network. Therefore, although we take reasonable measures to protect your information, IPTE cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to us or from online services and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will use industry standard efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

If IPTE provides links to third party sites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on those third party sites you visit since we do not control those Web sites.
