You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when websites set or access cookies. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of our website may become inaccessible or not function properly.


Who has access to your personal information?

Access to your personal information is on a “need to know” basis. We limit access to your personal information to only those persons who are subject to a duty of confidentiality and who are required to use your personal information to achieve the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, to perform our existing or potential contract with you, or to accomplish a legal obligation.

In addition, CoorsTek may provide access to your personal information to third-party service providers who assist us with administering our relationship with you, such as vendors providing customer relationship management, order or contract management, marketing automation, lead generation, and trade show management. Those third parties are prohibited from using your information for any purpose unrelated to their primary service function. We require all our third-party service providers, by written contract, to implement appropriate security measures to protect your personal information consistent with our policies and any data security obligations applicable to us.

As permitted by applicable law, we also may share your personal information on a confidential basis with purchasers and third parties in connection with a potential business transaction related to CoorsTek, such as a merger, sale, or reorganization.

Finally, we may disclose your personal information to authorities, including the government of the United States or its agencies, to comply with legal obligations or valid legal processes, such as search warrants, subpoenas, or court orders. When we disclose your personal information to comply with a legal obligation or legal process, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that we only disclose the minimum personal information necessary for the specific purpose and circumstances.


Where is your personal information transferred to and stored?

Your personal information may be transferred outside of the country where you work or live when necessary to perform our existing or potential contract with you, to accomplish the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, or to comply with a legal obligation. This may include the transfer of your personal information to other CoorsTek Group companies and/or third party service providers located outside of the country in which you live or work. For example, our website is hosted on servers located in the United States, and so if you are visiting our website from a different country and providing personal information to us as a result, your personal information will be transferred to the United States.

CoorsTek is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information when it is transferred outside of the country you are based in. With respect to international transfers of your personal information from locations in the European Economic Area (EEA) to jurisdictions that are not considered to provide an adequate level of data protection under EU law, we have implemented appropriate safeguards, specifically standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission. With respect to international transfers of your personal information from locations outside of the EEA, we have implemented data transfer agreements or obtained your informed consent where necessary to secure that transfer of your personal information.


How will your personal information be secured?

CoorsTek maintains appropriate organizational and technical safeguards to protect your personal information from unauthorized or unlawful processing and from accidental loss, destruction, or damage. We have implemented procedures to deal with any suspected data breach affecting your personal information and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.


How long will CoorsTek retain your personal information?

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it or to satisfy any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

If you reside in the European Union or a jurisdiction with similar privacy laws, you enjoy the following rights in respect of your personal information we hold:

  • Right of access. You may obtain access to the personal information that we hold about you. If you make this request, we will ask for specific information from you to verify your identity and to search for and provide you with your personal information. Your access may be limited if providing such access would be a violation of applicable law, excessive or unreasonable, such as compromising the privacy of another person or exposing sensitive company information.

  • Right to rectification. You may obtain rectification of your personal information without undue delay where that personal information is inaccurate, outdated, or incomplete. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes.

  • Right to erasure. Under certain circumstances, you may ask us to delete or remove personal information, such as when we no longer have a legitimate interest to continuing to process it. If we are not able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons, we will notify to you.

  • Right to restriction. Under certain circumstances, you may ask us to suspend the processing of your personal information, such as during the time while we are considering your request to rectify the accuracy of your personal information.

  • Right to object. You may object to the processing your personal information where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes, including profiling.

  • Right to request transfer. Under certain circumstances, you may request your personal information be transferred to you or to a third party in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format.

  • Right to make a complaint. You have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant data protection authority, where applicable, in your country.


If you want to exercise any of these rights in relation to your personal information (excluding your right to make a complaint), please contact us. Any such communication must be in writing.

  • Third Party Links. Our website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications.

We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements or processing of personal information, including cookies. When you leave our website, we encourage you to read the privacy notice of every website you visit.

  • Failure to Provide Personal Information. Where we need to collect personal information to perform our contract with you and you fail to provide that personal information when requested, we may not be able to perform that contract (for example, we may not be able to provide you with products or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us, but we will seek to notify you if this is the case at the time.
