Emails from Finning - If you provide your email address or other contact information, Finning may contact you by telephone, fax, mail or otherwise, and may send to you, from time to time, email and other correspondence containing information about Finning and other matters it believes will interest you.

Tracking Information - Finning may use non-personal information to create aggregate tracking information reports regarding Web Site user demographics and Web Site traffic patterns. None of the tracking information in the reports can be connected to the identities or other personal information of individual users.

Once such a link is made, all of the linked information is treated as personal information and will be used and disclosed only in accordance with this Policy.

If Finning is involved in a merger or other reorganization, Finning may disclose your personal information to the resulting organization. Again, Finning may also disclose your personal information as permitted by law.
Storing and Securing Your Information - Finning may store and process your personal information in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and at Finning's various offices throughout the world. To help protect the confidentiality of your personal information, Finning employs security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information.
