Personal Information is collected by us when you choose to provide it to us when registering for a Spoolon Manufacturing Ltd.

We may also receive Personal Information from our business partners and other third parties, provided that such third parties confirm to us that you have permitted them to share such information.

Business contact information such as the name, title, business address, email address or telephone number of a business or professional person or an employee of an organization is not considered Personal Information.

"Non-Personal Information" is information of an anonymous nature, such as your Internet Protocol Address (IP Address), the domain you may have used to access a Spoolon Manufacturing Ltd. the type and version of browser or operating system you may be using, and the website you may have come from and visit next. Aggregate information, such as demographic statistics of our users (e.g. average age or geographical allocation of our users), number of visitors and average time spent on a Spoolon Manufacturing Ltd. is also considered Non-Personal Information.

Non-Personal Information is collected or derived by us in the course of operating the Spoolon Manufacturing Ltd.
