This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how we handle the personal information that you provide to us on this web site (the “Web Site”). This Privacy Policy applies only to the Web Site, not to any other BE Aerospace, affiliate or third party sites that may be accessible from here.

After reading this Privacy Policy, which is incorporated into and is a part of the Web Site's Terms of Use, you will know:

 

  1. What information BE Aerospace collects from you
  2. How B/E Aerospace uses your information
  3. What choices you have about how BE Aerospace treats your information
  4. What about third party services you access through the Web Site
  5. How BE Aerospace protects your privacy
  6. What BE Aerospace does about children visiting the Web Site
  7. How you can contact BE Aerospace

 

Please be sure to read this Privacy Policy before using the Web Site or submitting information to us. You should review this Privacy Policy carefully, because if you do not agree with our practices, your ultimate choice is not to use the Web Site. Remember, by using any part of the Web Site, you accept and agree to our privacy practices. Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time and your continued use of the Web Site after the posting of the revised Privacy Policy means that you accept and agree to the terms of the revised Privacy Policy. Please check this area periodically for updates to this Privacy Policy.

1. INFORMATION BE AEROSPACE COLLECTS FROM YOU

Active Information Collection

Like many other web sites, we actively collect information from our visitors both by asking specific questions on the Web Site and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail. Some of the information that you submit during the registration process or while making a purchase may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, etc.). Also, if you place an order, you may be required to provide financial information.

When you visit the Web Site, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. If you choose to register with the Web Site, during the registration process you will be asked for both personal and demographic information, most of which is required in order to complete the registration. We will inform you which information is optional. If you opt not to register with the Web Site, you still can visit the Web Site but you will not be able to access certain areas of the Web Site.

For purposes such as improving personalization of our services, we may receive information about you from other sources. Like the information you provide to us, we do not share this information with anyone except authorized third parties in connection with providing you with our services.

Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through a web site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection. For example, we and/or our service providers may track IP addresses, assign Internet tags, and use session, persistent and flash cookies or any other successor tracker technology. We and our service providers may also automatically gather information about the areas you visit on the Web Site and collect operational information about the technology you use, such as your browser, operating systems, Internet Protocol address, system and application software, peripherals, Internet service providers and the domain name of the web site from which you linked to this Web Site.

Most Internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions.

We reserve the right to use electronic images known as web beacons, also referred to as single-pixel gifs, and any other successor technology, that permit us to count users who have visited certain Web Site pages and for other related statistics (e.g., recording the popularity of certain Web Site content and verifying system and server integrity). Web beacons are not used to access your personal information on the Web Site; they are solely used to compile aggregated statistics concerning the use of the Web Site. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, the time and date of a page view and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides.

We do not collect personally identifiable information automatically, but we may tie information collected automatically to your previously submitted personally identifiable information.

We passively collect information to understand what areas of the Web Site are most popular, which areas may require improvement and what technologies are being used by our visitors. This information helps us to update and improve the Web Site. We also use this information for security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches and to provide you with a safe online environment.

2. HOW BE AEROSPACE USES YOUR INFORMATION

BE Aerospace uses your personal information to enhance the operation of the Web Site and allow you to use all of its features.

Your contact information (billing, shipping, and e-mail addresses) and financial information will be used for the purposes for which you supplied it to us (e.g., registering with the Web Site, processing orders, etc.), to send you related notices or promotional materials and to respond to your comments or requests for information. If you direct comments to us or you request information from us, we may ask you to verify where you are doing business so that we can be assured that the response or information we provide is appropriate for that geographic location. We may also enhance or merge personally identifiable information with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes.

We may disclose personally identifiable information you provide via the Web Site to third parties, but only:

(a) to contractors we use to support our business, in which case we will require such third parties to agree to use the information for the same purposes;

(b) to respond to law enforcement requests, where required by applicable laws, court order or governmental regulations, or where we have reason to believe infringing material has been posted on the Web Site;


(c) in the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, dissolution, reorganization, assignment or other transfer of our business to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy and use it for the same purposes; or;


(d) in situations involving threats to the physical safety of any person.

BE Aerospace does not otherwise distribute to third parties your personally identifiable information. BE Aerospace, however, will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.

We may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, online traffic patterns, and related information to reputable third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information.

Although BE Aerospace does not currently rent, sell, or otherwise share your information with third parties for purposes unrelated to this Web Site, it may do so in the future. If you do not want your information to be shared, you should contact us at privacy@beaerospace.com

  • If you do not wish us to collect cookies, you may set your browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, please note that some parts of the Web Site may then be inaccessible or not function properly.
