2. What information do we collect and what do we do with it?

Log Files

Like most standard Web site servers, we use log files to capture IP address, browser type, machine ID, referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, number of clicks, and other information. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movement in aggregate, troubleshoot problems, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc., are not linked to personally identifiable information.

If you are also registered (by providing your e-mail address when asked in a variety of places), we capture your e-mail address in our log files in order to understand your interests to better serve you.

E-Mail and “Contact Us” Forms Submitted

If you contact Hemlock Semiconductor via e-mail or a “Contact Us” form, we may keep a record of that correspondence. We will try to respond in a timely manner. Hemlock Semiconductor also occasionally asks users to complete surveys that we use for research purposes. From time to time we may provide you with special offers based upon information you have provided within your e-mail. Note: If you unsubscribe or remove yourself from our mailing lists it will not stop e-mail that responds to your specific request or activities. Examples of such requests or inquires are responses to your inquiries (e.g., “Contact Us”), follow up e-mail on samples, order confirmations, and other activities not listed here.

Third Party Privacy

Hemlock Semiconductor uses pixels, or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These GIF files are provided by our ad management partner, DoubleClick. These files enable DoubleClick to recognize a unique cookie on your Web browser, which in turn enables us to learn what advertisements bring users to our website. The cookie was either placed by us or by another advertiser who works with DoubleClick. With both cookies and spotlight technology, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address. For more information about DoubleClick, including information about how to opt out of these technologies, go to https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/.

3. Use of "Cookies"

Cookies are pieces of information that are used to store and track information about you, and they are stored on your computer's hard drive. Whenever you provide us your e-mail address (e.g., completing a “Contact Us” form), we place a Cookie with your e-mail address and a unique identifier created by our site on the computer you are using at the time.

We use these Cookies:

  • To track usage so we can improve the site’s navigation, layout, and general design. To determine what is useful to users of the site.
  • To determine areas you are interested in so that we are better able to serve you.
  • So you do not have to enter your e-mail address each time you visit this site and/or each time you submit a “Contact Us” form.

We also place Cookies with non-personally identifiable information such as last visit date, number of visits, survey and other information in order to not display information/offers you have already seen. We may from time to time place other Cookies on your PC with non-personally identifiable data in order to better support and serve you.

A European Union regulation requires that we obtain your consent and agreement to store Cookies on your computer when you visit our sites. This consent will be asked of you each time you access our sites with no Cookies through a banner located at the top of the first page you visit on our website. By continuing to navigate the site after this initial page, you mark your agreement and consent that Dow Corning installs Cookies on your computer.

You will be asked again whether you accept Dow Corning website to install Cookies on your computer each time you re-open your browser and visit our site. Consider changing your settings if you don’t want the Cookie banner to appear each time you visit our site.

4. Use of Purchased Mailing Lists

We do purchase/rent/lease e-mail lists for which we do not have direct access to the addresses and therefore are unable to remove you from the e-mail communication if you have previously unsubscribed from receiving communications from Hemlock Semiconductor.  We rely on the fact that you gave permission to the owner of the purchased/rented/leased e-mail list and therefore we are in compliance with this Privacy Statement.

5. Protection of Information

Hemlock Semiconductor takes steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with the relevant terms and conditions and this privacy policy. Unfortunately data transmission over the Internet cannot be guaranteed as 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your information, Hemlock Semiconductor cannot ensure or warrant the security of this site, and you use it at your own risk.

Hemlock Semiconductor will release customer's Personal Information if required to do so by law or by search warrant, subpoena or court order.

The Hemlock Semiconductor website is currently hosted in the United States. The fact that your data is being processed outside the European Economic Area may mean that your rights under EU Data Protection legislation are adversely affected or inapplicable. By submitting your personal data through this website, you shall be consenting to its being processed by Hemlock Semiconductor and Hemlock Semiconductor, L.L.C. on servers located outside the European Economic Area.

6. Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.  We will use information in accordance with the privacy statement under which the information was collected. Please check back often for updates.
