"Operational Data" is data about how our 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 that the customer performs with Weiler equipment. It may also include information or data that is input by a customer into a system or service provided by Weiler. Accessories incorporated on the equipment include services, hardware, and software purchased or licensed by Weiler from third parties for incorporation in, with, or on Weiler equipment. Weiler equipment also includes certain equipment that is branded as “Weiler” or otherwise sold by Weiler or its dealers for use with other Weiler equipment, such as telematics and locator systems manufactured by third parties for or in conjunction with Weiler.
In addition to the methods described above, Personal Information, Non-Personal Information, Equipment Data, and Operational Data may be collected by Weiler 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 Weiler and such authorized dealers and distributors.

Information We Receive From Third Parties
We may collect your Personal Information from third party affiliates or business partners such as social media sites, ad networks, analytics providers, our distributors, dealers, and retailers, and advertising and marketing agencies and vendors. We may also receive information from other sources to help us supplement our records, improve the personalization of our service to you, and detect fraud. Our goal is to limit the information we collect to the information needed to support our business.
Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technologies
You also provide us information in other ways through technology to help our Sites and Apps work properly and support customer service, marketing, and analytics efforts to help us understand our customers’ needs and provide information about our products and services. Some of this information may be linked to you personally. When you use our Services, our servers automatically record information that your browser or device sends whenever you visit a website or utilize an application. This information may include your IP address, the type of device you are using, the internet service provider or mobile carrier you are using, your device identifiers, your mobile telephone number, your geographic location and your activities within the Services, including the links you click, the pages or screens you view, your session time, the number of times you click a page/screen or use a feature of the Services, the date and time you click on a page or use a feature and the amount of time you spend on a page or using a feature.
Our Sites also use “cookie” technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve the Sites and our Services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk. A session cookie enables certain features of the Sites and is deleted from your computer when you disconnect from or leave the Sites. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to our Sites. We may use both session and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Sites, to monitor aggregate usage by our uses and web traffic routing on our Sites, and to improve our Sites and Services. You may also be able to configure your computer or mobile device to limit the collection of these “cookies,” but that limitation may also limit our ability to provide all of the services or functionalities of the Sites.
We may also automatically record certain information from your device by using various types of technology, including “clear gifs” or “web beacons.” This automatically collected information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on our Sites and the dates and times that you visit, access or use our Sites. We may also use these technologies to collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on or forwarded a message, to the extent permitted under applicable law.
We also use Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics to collect information automatically. Google Analytics only collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you visited the site and does not gather your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through Google Analytics with your identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser. For information about how to opt-out of Google Analytics Advertising Features, visit:
We use Google Tag Manager to install, store, and manage marketing tags, which allows us to track activity on the Sites, such as link and button clicks, form submissions, file downloads, video views.
In short, we use these automated technologies to collect the following information:
- your IP address, browser type, and operating system;
- the mobile device you use and its temporary or persistent unique device identifiers;
- pages you view within the Services;
- video viewing history for videos you watch on the Services;
- emails from us that you open and/or forward;
- offers or links from us to which you connect; and
- information about products you purchase using the Services, including payment method, the date and time of the transaction, items purchased, the purchase price, and other order or purchase related information.
Information Collected by Third Parties
In addition, Weiler may contract with third parties to collect Equipment Data and Operational Data. By operating our Equipment, you consent to the collection of Equipment Data and Operational Data; however, such third parties may request your consent to collect Equipment Data and Operational Data, if and to the extent required by law.
Links to Other Websites
The Sites and Apps may contain links to other websites. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer or mobile device, collect data or solicit Personal Information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the Personal Information you submit to them. We are not responsible for the content, privacy and security practices, and policies of third party sites or services to which links or access are provided through our Sites and Apps. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.
- How We Use The Information We Collect
We may use the information we collect for non-marketing purposes including:
- validating your identity and managing your account with us;
- processing your transactions and providing our products and services to you;
- communicating with you for non-marketing purposes, including order processing and fulfillment and about employment opportunities and job openings;
- sending you push notifications or e-mails to provide you with alerts and updates about your account and our Services;

These purposes may be necessary for Weiler to perform a contract to which you are a party, comply with a legal obligation to which Weiler is subject, protect Weiler’s vital interests or the interests of another natural person, or otherwise pursue Weiler’s legitimate business purposes and objectives. Weiler may obtain your consent to process your Personal Information or Equipment Data, if and as necessary.
We may use the Personal Information we collect for our own marketing purposes including notifying you of special promotions, offers and events via push notifications, email and other means, subject to compliance with applicable laws and consent requirements.

We may also use information in the aggregate to understand how our users as a group use the Services provided on our Sites and Apps. We will not collect additional categories of Personal Information or use the Personal Information we collect for materially different, unrelated or incompatible purposes without providing you notice.
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, license agreements, or contracts that you sign or accept related to the services that collect Operational Data. In general, Weiler 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, Operational Data, and Equipment Data does not personally identify you, we may use and disclose such information for any purpose. In some instances, we may combine this information with Personal Information (such as combining your name with your location data), but in such instance, Weiler will treat the combined information as Personal Information.

For business purposes, we may share certain Personal Information we receive from and about you, and about your transactions with us, with our affiliates and certain third parties, including our dealers, distributors, advertising/digital agencies and other vendors, including our contractors, service providers and other third parties we use to support our business. Doing so allows us to provide the Services you request.

Third Party Service Providers
Your Personal Information may be shared with or collected by third party service providers who provide us with services, including, but not limited to, facilitating mailing information and services, data hosting or processing, payment and credit card processing, processing and fulfilling transactions, and shipping and delivering products you order. We require these third-party service providers to exercise reasonable care to protect your Personal Information and restrict their use of your Personal Information to the purposes for which it was provided to them.
Anonymous Information/Aggregated Information
We may freely use aggregated and anonymized information as allowed by law and share it with third parties. Any anonymized information we provide to third parties does not identify you and is not considered Personal Information, and, as such, is not subject to the terms of this Policy.
