We want you to get the most out of our site and to trust that we make every effort to protect your confidentiality. Please take a few minutes to read our complete privacy statement so you can understand how information is used and the specific measures we take to protect your personal information.
Normal Website Usage
You can visit Quanex.com to access information about the Company products, along with investment information, without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information. The only data we collect and store during normal website usage is typical web server log data. Examples of this type of data are: the name of your internet service provider, the site that referred you to us, and the pages you request, and the time and date of those requests, etc. We use this information to generate statistics and measure site activity to benefit Quanex.com users. This same information may be shared with third parties in order to analyze, store or aggregate the information. It may also be shared with other third parties working with us to improve the services of this website.
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
There are instances where you may have provided Quanex Building Products Corporation (QBPC) with your personal information. This information, such as name, company affiliation, mailing address, email address and type of request, is collected and stored in a manner appropriate to the nature of the request determined by QBPC to fulfill your needs. This information is never provided or sold to any other company. To the extent that you move from Quanex.com to third-party sites not controlled by QBPC, you should check the privacy statements of such sites.
A “cookie” is a small line of text that is stored within your browser when you visit a cookie-enabled website. As you browse the web, cookie-enabled sites will send cookies to your browser, along with pages. Your browser probably has options that will let you control whether the browser accepts cookies, rejects cookies or notifies you each time a cookie is sent. If your browser is set to reject cookies, cookie-enabled websites will not recognize you when you return. This provides you with anonymity, but it also makes it difficult to offer you customized services. It is also less secure than using cookies, because all of your specific data must be sent to the website each time you view a page. Accepting cookies means your privacy data can stay at the web server, and the only information transmitted over the internet is your ID cookie. If your browser is set to accept cookies, any cookies that are sent to your browser are stored in your computer for a period of time. There are a few different types of cookies. A “session” cookie is stored only in your computer’s working memory and only lasts for your browsing session. When you close all of your browser’s windows, or when you shut down your computer, the session cookie disappears. A “permanent” cookie is stored on your computer’s hard drive until a specified date, which could be well into the future.
Electronic Mail Containing Personal Information
As provided above, website users may decide to send Quanex Building Products Corporation personally identifying information via email. We will use this information for the purpose identified in the email message.
Privacy Statement Revisions
A revised privacy statement will only apply to data collected subsequent to its effective date on this version of the website. Any revisions will be effective when posted. Any new version of this website may have a revised privacy statement.
