What Types of Information and Data Does TOBROCO Collect, and When Does It Collect This Data?
TOBROCO collects various types of Personal Information, Equipment Data, and Operational Data. We collect this information when you provide it to us (whether directly, through our dealers and/or representatives, or from TOBROCO equipment) or when you use certain services provided by TOBROCO.
“Personal Information” is information that can be used to identify, locate, or contact you as a natural person, as well as other information about you that we tie to Personal Information. Personal Information that we collect includes, but is not limited to, the following types of information:
- “Contact Information” that allows us to identify and communicate with you, such as your name, phone number, address, email, and language preferences.
- “Relationship Information” that helps us understand who you are and what you want in order to offer you products and services that may interest you.
- “Transactional Information” about how you interact with us, our dealers and business partners, including purchases, services you request, customer service inquiries, and customer account information.
- “Financial Account Information” as needed to complete your purchases, such as credit card information and information about equipment financing and leasing activities.
“Non-Personal Information” is any information that does not identify a natural person and is not identifiable to a natural person, such as:
- Cookies and other tools used in a non-identifiable way;
- Anonymized information;
- Aggregated information; and
- Information about your business operations, including, but not limited to:
- Operation-specific data, such as location data, when kept in a non-identifiable way; and
- The name, form, and contact details of legal persons.
“Equipment Data” is data generated by, collected by, or stored in your equipment or any hardware or device interfacing with your equipment. Equipment Data includes the following information about your equipment: location, engine hours, fuel consumption, diagnostic information, and other equipment operation and status data.
“Operational Data” is data about how TOBROCO equipment, services, and accessories incorporated on the equipment are performing with respect to particular jobs or other information regarding a customer’s processes, operations, operators, jobs, job performance, and the work the customer performs with its TOBROCO equipment. It may also include information or data that is input by a customer into a system or service provided by TOBROCO. Accessories incorporated on the equipment include services, hardware, and software purchased or licensed by TOBROCO from third parties for incorporation in, with, or on TOBROCO equipment. TOBROCO equipment also includes certain equipment that is branded as “TOBROCO” or otherwise sold by TOBROCO or its dealers for use with other TOBROCO equipment, such as vacuum equipment and locator systems manufactured by third parties for or in conjunction with TOBROCO.
In addition to the methods described above, Personal Information, Non-Personal Information, Equipment Data, and Operational Data may be collected by TOBROCO from its authorized dealers and distributors as part of its standard business operations, to provide services to the authorized dealers and distributors, and as otherwise agreed pursuant to agreements between TOBROCO and such authorized dealers and distributors.
When data is described as “anonymized,” it means that the data is no longer associated with a particular person. When data is described as “aggregated,” it means that such information has been combined with other data in such a way that no person can be identified or linked to any specific action or information.
How TOBROCO Uses Your Information (the “Purposes”)
- To Complete Orders and Provide Requested Services. To fulfill orders for products or services, and for other services or purposes as you may request or direct, such as product delivery, maintenance, warranty service, financing, leasing or credit services.
- Product and Customer Support. To provide support services, including monitoring and managing the health of your equipment, to deliver upgrades and product improvement communications, and for diagnostics and repairs, product safety, and recalls.
- Marketing and Surveys. To communicate offers for products and services from TOBROCO or its dealers, suppliers, or partners, including offers based on your interests, personal and business characteristics and your location; to administer surveys, polls, sweepstakes, contest, loyalty programs and other promotional events; and to provide other information which may be of interest to you, such as TOBROCO company news, catalogs, announcements, reminders, and technical bulletins. Please contact us if you would not like to be contacted by TOBROCO for marketing purposes without being asked. We will provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of marketing information or market research inquiries.
- General Business Purposes. To provide and accomplish standard business tasks, such as payment processing, financial account management, product development, product safety, contract management, website administration, web-forum management, order or contract fulfillment, analytics, fraud prevention, corporate governance, reporting and legal compliance.
- As Disclosed at the Time of Collection. In any other manner that we may describe when you provide the information to us.
These Purposes may be necessary for TOBROCO to perform a contract to which you are a party, comply with a legal obligation to which TOBROCO is subject, protect the vital interests of TOBROCO or the interests of another natural person, or otherwise pursue legitimate business purposes and objectives of TOBROCO. TOBROCO may obtain your consent to process your Personal Information or Equipment Data, as necessary.
We use your Operational Data to help you do your job and to provide the specific services you have requested related to that Operational Data. The particular ways we use your Operational Data are set forth in the specific terms of service or contracts that you sign or accept related to the TOBROCO services that collect Operational Data. In general, TOBROCO and its data service providers may access your Operational Data in personally identifiable form only when necessary to provide our services or administer your account.
Because Non-Personal Information does not personally identify you, TOBROCO may use and disclose Non-Personal Information for any purpose. In some instances, TOBROCO may combine Non-Personal Information with Personal Information (such as combining your name with your location data). If TOBROCO combines any Non Personal Information with Personal Information, TOBROCO will treat the combined information as Personal Information.
In addition, TOBROCO reserves the right to use anonymized and aggregated Personal Information, Equipment Data, and Operational Data to improve its products and services, to create and publish reports, to conduct statistical analysis about our customers and equipment, and for other activities that do not result in the disclosure of your identifiable information.
When Will TOBROCO Disclose Your Information, and Who May Receive It?
TOBROCO is committed to being transparent regarding the manner in which we use and disclose your information. We may disclose and share your information as follows:
- We may share Personal Information, Equipment Data, and Operational Data with our affiliated companies, our suppliers, authorized dealers and distributors, and business partners, as needed to accomplish, and consistently with, the Purposes set forth above, or as you authorize or request.
- We may also share Personal Information, Equipment Data, and Operational Data with our service providers to fulfill the Purposes on our behalf. Our service providers are bound by law or contract to treat your information and data with the same level of protection that we do and to only use it in accordance with our instructions.
- We may disclose Personal Information, Equipment Data, and Operational Data where needed to affect the sale or transfer of business assets, to enforce our rights, protect our property, or protect the rights, property, or safety of others, or as needed to support external auditing, compliance, and corporate governance functions.
- We will also disclose Personal Information, Equipment Data, and Operational Data when required to do so by law, such as in response to a subpoena, including to law enforcement agencies and courts in the countries where we operate.
We understand that your Operational Data is particularly important to your success. For that reason, we do not share your Operational Data in a non-anonymized or non-aggregated form with any parties that are not directly involved in providing services directly to you without your express consent.
As noted above, TOBROCO reserves the right to use and disclose anonymized and aggregated Personal Information, Equipment Data, and Operational Data to improve its products and services, to create and publish reports, to conduct statistical analysis about our customers and equipment, and for other activities that do not result in the disclosure of your identifiable information.
How Long Will TOBROCO Keep your Information?
TOBROCO keeps different kinds of personal data for different lengths of time, depending on the Purposes for which they are processed and the unique circumstances of your situation. TOBROCO will hold your Personal Information as long as necessary for the relevant Purpose.
