This Privacy Statement is published by Coates International, Ltd. ("Coates", or "we", "us", "our", etc.). Coates is committed to maintaining and protecting all personal information in its possession or under its control in accordance with privacy legislation applicable to Coates.
This Privacy Statement is a summary of the practices and policies of Coates governing this website ("Website") and is applicable to the personal information of visitors to this Website. A more comprehensive summary of our privacy policies is available from us on request. We may from time to time revise this Privacy Statement to reflect any changes in our procedures regarding personal information and post the revised version of this Privacy Statement on this Website. Upon posting, any such revised Privacy Statement will come into effect.
Personal information means information about an identifiable individual. This does not include information of an aggregate or anonymous nature where a specific individual or individuals cannot be identified, nor does it include business contact information used to contact an individual in their capacity as an employee or official of an organization.
Privacy and this Website
Simply visiting this Website does not result in our collecting any personal information from you. However, you should be aware that most web servers do collect some information about visitors, such as the browser and version you are using, your operating system, and your "IP" or Internet address, which may identify your Internet Service Provider or computer but generally not the person using it.
Coates takes reasonable steps to ensure the accuracy and security of the personal information in its custody or control. However, please be advised that the Internet and email are inherently insecure media, and we accept no liability for the security or privacy of personal information in transit over the Internet.
By accessing this Website, you confirm your consent to the contents of this Policy. If you do not agree with the contents of this Policy, or to our collection, use or disclosure of personal information as described in this Policy, then you may not access this Website.
It is our policy to generally collect, use and disclose personal information only with your consent, but we reserve our right to do so without consent where required to do so, or where permitted to by law, such as, for example, in course of an investigation or in relation to a legal proceeding.
For example, when you request financial information for investment purposes, we will assume your consent to the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information for purposes related to that request for information, or for other purposes identified by you at the time.
We do not sell your personal information to any third party for marketing or other purposes.
Coates will honor your right to refuse consent and to withdraw a consent previously granted, but Coates in all cases reserves its legal rights to retain personal information for reasonable business or legal purposes. Refusal or withdrawal of consent may make it impossible for us to provide, or continue to provide, services or information to you, in which case Coates will advise you of any such consequences.
Unsolicited or Voluntary Personal Information
If you choose to voluntarily submit personal information to us by email, online forms or other means, we will consider that you have done so with your consent for purposes reasonably related to your providing the information. If you request ongoing provision of information, or if otherwise reasonable for Coates to do so, we may communicate further with you after our initial response with information that may be useful, but, if so, in most cases, our policy with ongoing communications with you is to include instructions on how to terminate receiving such further information. We may share your personal information with our employees or contractors if reasonable to do so having regard to the purposes for which you have provided us with your information. It is important that any information you provide to us is up to date and accurate so, if you have provided personal information to us, we request that you keep us informed of any changes to your personal information.
From time to time, Coates may have in force acceptable use policies with respect to our computers, systems and email received by and sent from Coates. In order to enforce such policies, we reserve the right, but not the obligation, to intercept and review the contents of email, including any personal information provided by the recipients, authors or originators of email messages. Users of our systems and computers have no expectation of privacy and, by using email as a means of communication with us, you consent to such interception and monitoring.
Please note that our Website may contain links to other websites which are provided as a convenience for visitors to our Website only. Any third party websites will have their own privacy policies and practices, and we cannot be responsible for such third parties or their websites.
