How We Share Your Personal Information
We do not sell or otherwise disclose personally-identifiable information about our sites’ visitors, except as described in this policy.
We may share personally identifiable information among SPX brands, affiliates, subsidiaries and partners. In the course of doing business, we employ other companies and individuals to perform a variety of functions on our behalf. For example, we hire agencies to analyze data, fulfill orders you place, and provide customer service. These service providers may have access to personally identifiable information about our website visitors if it is needed to perform their functions for SPX, but they are not authorized by SPX to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on SPX’s behalf or to comply with legal requirements, and they are required to maintain the information in confidence. In addition, we may disclose information where we think it’s necessary to investigate or prevent an actual or suspected crime or injury to ourselves or others, if required by law, or in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials.
During the normal course of our business, SPX may purchase companies or divest itself of divisions or subsidiaries. If another entity acquires us or any of our assets, information we have collected about you may be transferred to such entity. When such information is transferred to another entity that acquires some (but not all) of our assets (e.g., the entity acquires only a single division or affiliate), a copy of your information may also be retained by the remaining SPX entities. In addition, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, such information may be considered an asset of ours and may be sold or transferred to third parties. Should a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the transferee use personally identifiable information provided through this website in a manner that is consistent with this privacy statement. In all situations, we may retain a copy of your information for the purposes described in this privacy statement.
