Parties.  BRUSH, ("Operator"), being Brush Electrical Machines Ltd (registered in England), Brush HMA b.v.

Operator’s Service Providers, Affiliates and Business Partners are intended third-party beneficiaries of these Terms of Use. This Site is not directed to or intended for individuals under 18 years of age.

This Privacy Policy describes the type of information Operator and its Affiliates, Business Partners and Service Providers collect from visitors to these Sites, what we do with that information, and how visitors can update and control the use of information provided on these Sites. This Policy does not necessarily describe information collection policies on other sites, such as separate sites operated by our Business Partners that we do not control. If you do not agree to abide by this Privacy Policy or any future terms, please do not use these Sites or submit your information through them.

Changes in Terms. Operator may change this Policy from time to time, with notice given to those completing a registration process ("Registered Users").

What Type of Information Do We Collect'

(a) When you first visit one of our Sites we may ask that you register and provide us with information about you and your company including your name, company name, address, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail address, and other identity and contact information.
 (b) If you use our services, request quotes for products through our Sites or otherwise make use of the Sites, we may ask you to provide further information, including but not limited to technical specifications, financial information, and other business-related information. When you visit our Sites, we may collect certain routing information such as the Internet Protocol address of your originating Internet Service Provider, and information provided by "cookies" stored on your hard drive. Cookies are small data files containing a unique identifier so that we can recognize you each time you return to our Sites, and which keep track of the pages you view on websites and which services you use. This information allows us to provide more tailored and user-friendly services.
  (c) We also may collect aggregate information about the use of our Sites, including which pages are most frequently visited, how many visitors we receive daily, and how long visitors stay on each page.

Google Analytics: We use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor behaviour on our website. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. This Analytics data is collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of our site and is not tied to personally identifiable information. We therefore do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.
