Collection of Anonymous Data

In addition to the information you provide when you use the LumaSense Websites, LumaSense uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of the LumaSense Websites.

We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they accessed our sites (for example, if they connected to a LumaSense Website by clicking on one of our banner ads).

This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of the LumaSense Websites. LumaSense and its affiliates use this anonymous data and share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of the LumaSense Websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.

You should also be aware that, despite our best efforts, factors beyond our control may result in disclosure of data.
