The operator of this site (referred to on each page in the address block): Hexagon Metrology, Inc. and Wilcox Associates, Inc., all part of the Hexagon Metrology group (collectively "COMPANY," "us" or "we" as appropriate) are committed to safeguarding the privacy of visitors to our web sites and all pages operated by COMPANY accessed directly or indirectly by links contained within the site (collectively, the "Site"). This privacy statement explains data collection and use practices of the Site and in connection with services accessed through the Site (the "Service(s)").
2. What Information We May Collect and How We May Use Information Collected
If you visit the Site to browse, we may collect and store anonymous site-visitation data, such as the domain name and host from which you accessed the Internet (e.g., aol.com), the IP address of your computer, your browser software and operating system, the date and time you accessed the Site and the Internet address of any web site from which you are linked directly to our site or to which you link after visiting the Site. We may use this information for website management, research and marketing functions, such as measuring the number of visitors to sections of our Site, to determine from where our visitors linked and to where our visitors link from the Site and to help us make our Site more useful. For example, we may organize and analyze IP addresses so that we can provide more efficient service, enhance security, monitor appropriate usage and produce traffic volume statistics. We may aggregate this information or correlate information obtained through separate transactions.
Personally Identifiable Information
If you communicate with us, we may collect and store the Personally Identifiable Information you provide, including if applicable, your user ID and password, which we may elect to provide for you. If you communicate with us to engage in a transaction such as receiving information about Company products and services, ordering e-mail newsletters, signing up for an event or training, or when purchasing, downloading and/or registering Company products, then we also may collect and store information about the transaction. If you send us communications, we may collect such communications in a file specific to you.
We may aggregate your Personally Identifiable Information or otherwise make it anonymous. We may merge anonymous site-visitation data or demographic information with Personally Identifiable Information, and we may use this merged information to provide more relevant content. In some limited-entry sections of the Site, with your approval, we will combine site-visitation data with your Personally Identifiable Information in order to provide you with personalized content.
When we communicate with you regarding a Product or Service you request, we may use Personally Identifiable Information to communicate with you via mail, email, phone or in any other way enabled by information you provide. We may also use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide you with information about the product or service that you are using, including critical updates and notifications. Additionally, with your permission, we may send you information about other Company products and services, and/or share information with Company partners so they may send you information about their products and services.
When you sign up for a newsletter or agree to receive promotional e-mail, we may use customized links or similar technologies to track e-mail links that you click. We may associate that information with your Personally Identifiable Information in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or purchase information.
The Site may contain electronic images known as Web beacons - sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that allow us to count users who have visited certain web pages and to deliver co-branded services. COMPANY may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. Some of these Web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. Web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. Doing this allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views. COMPANY prohibits Web beacons from being used to collect or access your Personally Identifiable Information.
3. Your Choice To Opt Out

Company is committed to protecting the security of your Personally Identifiable Information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personally Identifiable Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the Personally Identifiable Information you provide on computer servers that have limited access and are located in controlled facilities.
