Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. will not sell or provide any personal information to anyone without your permission.
Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. (“Beacon”) is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to the Beacon Pro+ website and users of the Beacon Pro+ application. Beacon does not use any personally identifiable information collected at this site or through the application for any purpose other than internal use.
The following is an explanation of the types of information that are collected from visitors at the Beacon Pro+ site and users of the Beacon Pro+ application, and how such information is used by Beacon. If you have any questions or concerns about privacy issues, please contact us at email@example.com.
Beacon tracks visitor activity to our site using IP addresses and sets temporary cookies to track user sessions. The information gathered is not connected in any way with personally identifiable information (name, address, etc.). The user’s identity remains anonymous.
Like many other commercial sites, Beacon automatically collects certain information from visitors about the parts of the site that you use and what selections you make. In doing so, Beacon may collect certain technical data such as device-specific information (e.g., operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile information if the site is accessed via a mobile device) or server log information (e.g., navigation paths and search queries, and IP address).
The anonymous data collected by this site helps us keep track of the number of visitors and helps facilitate the dynamic nature of our site. For example, we may use third party tools to help us measure customer interest in the various areas of our website for product and website development purposes. These tools tell us, for example, how the site was accessed and how long visitors stayed. This information is used internally to improve the content of this website and to enhance user experience. As set forth above, this information is aggregated and not personally identifiable.
If a visitor to our site fills out the Registration form, or if a user installs and registers the Beacon Pro+ application on one or more of its devices, the information will be retained and used by Beacon solely to contact the visitor regarding pricing or other product information, promotions, special offers, or other direct marketing communications. This information, which typically includes first and last name, month and day of birth, physical address, email, and telephone number, is not shared with anyone other than Beacon and its authorized sales representatives. Visitors or users who do not wish to receive such communications in the future may opt out by removing the application and following the opt-out instructions set forth in Beacon’s marketing communications or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beacon may also work with a trusted third party to participate in interest-based advertising. This means that you may see advertising for Beacon on other websites based on your browsing behavior across websites. Some websites where we may advertise belong to ad networks that use your web browsing history to choose which ads to display on their network websites; these ads include advertising for Beacon, but no personal information about you is shared with those third party ad networks. Other websites where you see our ads, such as Facebook, may use interest preferences that you have chosen on those sites, as well as registration and other information about you, to choose which ads to display to you. Some internet browsers, websites such as Facebook and mobile devices offer opt-outs for interest-based advertising. Please refer to the website that you are visiting, your browser and/or your device settings for additional information. You can opt out of receiving interest-based ads from third parties who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising by visiting the opt-out pages on the NAI website and the DAA website: http://optout.networkadvertising.org/#!/ and http://optout.aboutads.info/#!/.
Third-Party Privacy Policies
Similarly, you may have the opportunity to engage with Beacon on third party social media or career networking platforms like Facebook or LinkedIn. Consequently, you may share your personal information with that third party service provider and they may share data with us. In the event that you choose to provide your information to a third party service provider, your information will be governed by the policies of those service providers. Beacon does not control the privacy policies or practices of these third parties, who may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, solicit personal information from you and follow different rules regarding the use of the information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of these platforms and any other websites you visit.
Other Important Considerations
Beacon does not currently process or respond to “Do Not Track” signals from your browser. As previously described, we may participate in online advertising networks administered by third parties, which may track your online activities over time and across third-party websites. You may opt-out of interest-based and other targeted advertising as set forth above in the Interest-Based Advertising section. However, even if you opt out of such ads, Beacon may continue to collect and use online activity data on our websites and in our applications for other purposes.
Beacon’s website and applications are not intended for use by children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal data from such children. If a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal data, we ask that a parent or guardian contact us so that the personal data can be deleted.
