How we collect, use and protect customer information
The information we collect
This site collects information about you, including your email address. In addition, information you agree to provide us when registering for a discussion forum or requesting information, such as your name, title, company names, address, telephone number and fax number information is collected and retained. We may verify or combine this information with data about you that we have gathered from other sources or may already have in our files.
Why we collect it
Our intention is always to gather only the information needed to serve you better, and never to gather information without your knowledge. We aim to balance our legitimate business interests with a level of privacy you would reasonably expect in the normal 'offline' world.
Anonymous information about our readers as a group, is collected mostly through standard analysis of our Web server log files. We use this information to closely monitor what areas we need to focus on improving. This information is used exclusively by our Company in aggregate form so we may continue to improve the value of the services and information on the Web site to our visitors as a whole.
We also gather information which can identify you personally, generally to provide you with Eastman Companies services or information.
We may also compile and use this information so that we may keep you informed of upcoming events, send you newsletter information, or e-mails to customize your visit to sites, and offer new services that may be of interest to you.
Sharing of information within our family of companies
We may share information we collect about present and former visitors with our companies within our family of companies. Our "family" is the group of companies related to us by a common control or ownership. We share information within this family as a normal part of conducting company business and offering information and services to visitors to our sites.
Third party use of this information
Eastmancompanies.com does not provide its electronic mailing list to third parties. We may be required by law, however, to disclose personal information about you to a third party. (Personal information refers to your name, email address, street address, phone number and so forth.)
Eastman may use software to analyze traffic to this web site. It is not Eastman's intent to create individual profiles for visitors.
