This Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the Terms of Use. By visiting this website, you are accepting the practices described in this Policy and the Terms of Use.

Information we collect and how we use it:

We offer a number of services that do not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information to us. In order to provide our full range of services, we may collect the following types of information:

Please note that any comments, feedback, suggestions, ideas, data and other information that does not reveal your identity which you disclose, submit or offer to us in connection with your use of this website is not considered personal information subject to this Policy. Such information includes, but is not limited to, any information you choose to post on our website and any weather or other data that you provide to us. Our Terms of Use explain how we may use and disclose such information in any manner that does not reveal your identity. You may choose not to provide such information to us if you do not want us to use or disclose such information.

Davis only processes personal information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy and/or the web pages, communications or other notices relating to our services. In addition to the above, such purposes include:

Davis processes personal information on our servers in the United States of America and in other countries. In some cases, we process personal information on a server outside your own country. We may process personal information to provide our own services. In some cases, we may process personal information on behalf of and according to the instructions of a third party.

Choices for personal information

When you sign up for a particular Davis service that requires registration, we ask you to provide personal information. If we use this information in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected, then we will ask for your consent prior to such use.

If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Policy and/or in the specific service notices, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes. We will not collect or use sensitive information for purposes other than those described in this Policy and/or in the specific service notices, unless we have obtained your prior consent.

You can decline to submit personal information to any of our services, in which case Davis may not be able to provide those services to you.

Information sharing

Davis only shares personal information with other companies or individuals outside of Davis in the following limited circumstances:

If Davis becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, the personal information and other information we have collected as described in this Policy may be among the transferred business assets.

We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, for example, how many users clicked on a particular link. We may also share with third parties other information that does not constitute personal information. Such information does not identify you individually.

Please contact us at the address below for any additional questions about the management or use of personal data.

Information security

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.

We restrict access to personal information to Davis employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations.

Data integrity

Davis processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy or any applicable service-specific privacy notice. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.

Accessing and updating personal information

When you use Davis services, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort. Some of our services have different procedures to access, correct or delete users' personal information.


Davis regularly reviews its compliance with this Policy. Please feel free to direct any questions or concerns regarding this Policy or Davis's treatment of personal information by contacting us through this web site or by writing to us at Website Privacy Inquiry, Davis Instruments Corp. Inc., 3465 Diablo Ave., Hayward, California, 94545 USA. When we receive formal written complaints at this address, it is Davis's policy to contact the complaining user regarding his or her concerns. We will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal information that cannot be resolved between Davis and an individual.
