Privacy Policy

AZZ Inc. (“AZZ”) is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to its website at www.azz.com. This policy describes the information collected by AZZ.com, how that information is used by AZZ, and the terms and conditions of your use of this website. We encourage you to read this policy and the Terms of Use Agreement carefully before using this website. If you have any comments or questions or if there are other things we can do to maximize the value of this website to you, please contact us.

Data Collection and Use

Browsing our website and most other products or services do not require any personally identifying information. AZZ may collect limited non-personally identifying information your browser makes available whenever you visit a website. This includes monitoring user traffic patterns throughout the site according to a user's domain name, browser type, browser language, date and time of access, and pages viewed. Our website servers collect the domain names but not the e-mail addresses of visitors. This information is collected in order to measure the number of visitors to our website and to determine which areas of the website users find most useful based upon the amount of traffic to particular areas. AZZ uses this information to enhance users' experiences at the site and to better prepare future content based on the interests of users to our website. On occasion, a visitor to our website may be asked to provide personal information. By this we mean information that individually identifies you, such as your name, company name, physical address, e-mail address or other contact details. In most cases, personal information is used only to respond to inquiries. AZZ will not provide email addresses or other visitor information to any non-AZZ organization or partner. When we require personally identifying information, we will inform you regarding the types of information we collect and how we use it. We hope this will help you make an informed decision about sharing your personal information with AZZ. It is then up to you to decide if you want to provide the information or not.

Information Sharing

We do not rent or sell your personally identifying information to other companies or individuals, unless we have your permission. We may share such information in any of the following limited circumstances:

  • We have your expressed consent.
  • We provide such information to trusted businesses or persons for the sole purpose of processing your request on our behalf. When this is done, it is subject to agreements that obligate those parties to process such information only upon our instructions and in compliance with this policy and appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
  • We conclude that we are required by law or have a good faith belief that access, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of AZZ, its website users or the public.

If you have an account with AZZ, we may share the information submitted under your account among all of our products and services, as well as distributors and channel partners to the extent necessary to provide you with a seamless experience and to improve the quality of our products and services. As noted above, we will not disclose your account information to other people or non-affiliated companies, except in the limited circumstances described in this policy or with your consent. We may store and process personal information collected on our website in any country in which AZZ or our hosting providers maintain facilities. By using our services, you consent to the transfer of your information among these facilities, including those located outside your country. In the event of a transfer of ownership of all or a portion of AZZ, such as the acquisition by or merger with another company, we will provide notice and request your consent before any personally identifying information is transferred and thereby becomes subject to a different privacy policy. We may share aggregated information with others. Examples of this include user trends or the number of users who accessed a particular section of AZZ's website. This aggregated information does not include any personally identifying information.
