Privacy Policy

Effective Date: March 11, 2020

ATTENTION: PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE ACCESSING ANY MATERIAL ON THIS WEBSITE, PROVIDING ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION OR OTHERWISE USING ANY OF THE SERVICES OR INFORMATION PROVIDED. BY ACCESSING ANY MATERIAL ON THIS WEBSITE, PROVIDING ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION OR USING ANY OF THE SERVICES OR INFORMATION PROVIDED, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY, THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THE PRIVACY POLICY AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THE PRIVACY POLICY, DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE OR ANY OF THE SERVICES OR INFORMATION PROVIDED.

The following Privacy Policy describes the information gathering and dissemination practices of Wacker Neuson America Corporation ("Wacker Neuson"). Use of this website, purchase of Wacker Neuson products or services, or attendance at an in-person Wacker Neuson event constitutes consent to Wacker Neuson’s collection and use of personal information as outlined herein.

 If you are a California resident, please also see the below Appendix A “Privacy Information for California Residents” for supplemental California-specific privacy information.

1. Collection of Personal Information

Wacker Neuson may collect and/or track information that identifies you (“Personal Information”), including (1) the home server domain names, e-mail addresses and type of Web browser of users to this website; (2) information knowingly provided by the user in online forms, registration forms, surveys, at trade shows, etc. (including but not limited to, name, address, telephone number, e-mail, financial information and other personal profile data); (3) information regarding which pages users access; (4) information identifying the user or linking the user to the search performed; (5) information associated with every search request made by the user; (6) information about a user’s account (including but not limited to, username, order history, purchases, address, phone number, employer’s name, job title, and payment information); and (7) information regarding your attendance of a Wacker Neuson event or trade show.

Wacker Neuson or its third party service providers may place Internet “cookies” on users’ hard drives. A “cookie” is a small text file generated by a website’s server and placed on a user’s hard drive. Cookies enable the website and your browser to interact in such a way that the website is able to present you with the most appropriate options and to customize services to your interests, based on your previous use of the website. For example, a cookie can be used to store registration information in an area of the website so that you do not need to re-enter it on subsequent visits to that area. Users may decline Internet cookies, if any, by using the appropriate feature of their web browser, if available. However, declining to use cookies may impede the ability of this website to function properly.

Wacker Neuson or its third party service providers use Pixels on the Website. “Pixels” (which are sometimes also called web beacons) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that allow us (or a third party) to track general usage patterns of visitors to a website. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a computer’s hard drive, Pixels are small graphics that are about the size of the period at the end of a sentence that are embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails. Wacker Neuson may use pixels in its emails to you to determine whether you opened an email from Wacker Neuson, and to collect other statistics and analytics.

2. Use of Data Collected

Wacker Neuson may use the Personal Information it collects to fulfill orders, provide customer support, communicate with you, and in its marketing efforts. Wacker Neuson may also use Personal Information for internal purposes, including, for solving technical problems, calculating overall usage statistics, for internal marketing and promotional purposes, product development, and content improvement. Wacker Neuson may use Personal Information for any other purpose to which you consent and as generally permitted by law.

3. Sharing of Data Collected

Wacker Neuson may share Personal Information with its affiliates, dealer partners or third parties who provide servicing, administrative, marketing and other services for us or on your behalf. Wacker Neuson may share your Personal Information with others as required, or permitted, by law. This may include sharing your Personal Information with third parties in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process. This may also include sharing your Personal Information with third parties if Wacker Neuson believes that doing so is necessary to exercise its legal rights, defend against legal claims, defend against potential legal claims, apply the terms of any of Wacker Neuson’s policies or Terms of Use, or otherwise protect the rights, property, or safety of Wacker Neuson, its users, or others. In the event that Wacker Neuson or substantially all of Wacker Neuson’s assets are acquired, your Personal Information will be transferred to the acquiring company. Wacker Neuson may share anonymous aggregate information to non-affiliated third parties.

4. Third Party Data Collection 

This website uses or may use Google Analytics, Facebook, Twitter, Good Karma, AdThis plug-ins and/or other third party services. From time to time, Wacker Neuson receives Personal Information from these third party services. These third parties may use various technologies to collect Personal Information when you visit the website. Wacker Neuson’s advertising partners help Wacker Neuson market products and analyze information from search engines and other websites. Each of our advertising partners, like Google Ads, has their own privacy policy for their website, which Wacker Neuson encourages you to review. For example, you can read more about how Google uses your information here: policies.google.com/privacy. You can also opt out of Google Analytics here: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. Wacker Neuson may use the Personal Information collected by third parties for a variety of purposes, including website analytics (who visited and when), learning which online advertisements attracted you, to improve Wacker Neuson’s content, and to help it analyze the website’s effectiveness.

5. Third Party Links

This website contains links to websites operated and maintained by third parties. Wacker Neuson has no control over and is not responsible for the privacy policies or content on those websites, and any links to third party websites do not imply an affiliation between Wacker Neuson and the website owner, or any endorsement, approval, or verification of any content contained on those websites. Privacy policies on third party websites and mobile applications may be different from this Privacy Policy. You access such links at your own risk. You should always read the privacy policy of a website or mobile application before disclosing any of your information.

If you use any functionality of this website allowing you interact with social media platforms such as Facebook or otherwise interact with us on social media, generally, then please be aware that: (a) Wacker Neuson may display your email address and/or social media handle (e.g., username) to other users; (b) Wacker Neuson may use information you provide about yourself or other users to facilitate communications; and (c) Wacker Neuson may collect information about interactions with us and receive information from social media platforms about you.

6. User ID and Password

You are responsible for all actions taken with your User ID and password, including fees or expenses related to their misuse. Therefore Wacker Neuson recommends that you do not disclose your User ID or password to any third parties for whose actions you do not wish to be completely liable.

4. Sale of Personal Information

CCPA defines a “sale” of personal information broadly to include more than exchanges for monetary purposes. A sale can include personal information shared with a third party for “valuable consideration,” or information shared with a third party (even if they are performing services on its behalf) if they are permitted to use the information for their own purposes.

Wacker Neuson does not sell your personal information for monetary payment, whatsoever. To ensure it can share its products with you and tailor its advertisements, Wacker Neuson does allow some of its advertising partners to use cookies, pixels and other technologies to collect personal information on its website, and this may constitute a “sale” of personal information under CCPA.

5. Personal Information Sales Opt-Out

If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct Wacker Neuson to not sell your personal information at any time (the “right to opt out”). Wacker Neuson does not sell the personal information of consumers it actually knows are less than 16 years of age, unless it receives affirmative authorization (the “right to opt in”) from either the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt in to personal information sales may opt out of future sales at any time.

To exercise the right to opt out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to Wacker Neuson at socialmediaus@wackerneuson.com.

Once you make an opt-out request, Wacker Neuson will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to personal information sales at any time by visiting our contact page at www.wackerneuson.com/en/us/contact/contact-form.

You do not need to create an account with Wacker Neuson to exercise your opt-out rights. Wacker Neuson will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.

6. California Residents’ Rights and Choices

The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information, described below. Below are your CCPA rights and how to exercise those rights.

a. Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights (“Right to Know”)

You have the right to request that Wacker Neuson discloses certain information to you about its collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. You could request:

  • The categories of personal information Wacker Neuson collected about you;
  • The categories of sources of the personal information Wacker Neuson collected about you;
  • Wacker Neuson’s business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information;
  • The categories of third parties with whom Wacker Neuson shares that personal information; or
  • The specific pieces of personal information Wacker Neuson collected about you.

Wacker Neuson employees and employees of its business partners and service providers do not have a Right to Know.

b. Deletion Request Rights (“Right to Deletion”)

You have the right to request that Wacker Neuson deletes some or all of the personal information that it has collected from you and retained, subject to a number of exceptions. Wacker Neuson is not required to delete personal information that is: (a) necessary to complete a transaction with you or for warranty or product recalls; (b) used for security purposes, to prevent fraud, to fix errors, or to comply with law; (c) reasonable for Wacker Neuson to use for internal purposes given its relationship with you; or (d) compatible with the context in which you provided the information. The list of exceptions above is not exhaustive, and Wacker Neuson may also deny a deletion request as otherwise permitted by law.

Wacker Neuson employees and employees of its business partners and service providers do not have a Right to Deletion.

c. Exercising Your Rights

To exercise your rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to Wacker Neuson by either:

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. If you are making a request on behalf of another person, you must provide written legal documentation that you are authorized to act on behalf of that individual.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows Wacker Neuson to reasonably verify you are the person about whom Wacker Neuson collected personal information or an authorized representative; and
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows Wacker Neuson to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

Wacker Neuson may not be able to fulfill your request or provide you with personal information if it cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. To verify your identity, Wacker Neuson may request up to up to three pieces of personal information about you, and Wacker Neuson reserves the right to take additional steps as necessary to verify your identity if it has reason to believe a request is fraudulent.

d. Response Timing and Format

Wacker Neuson endeavors to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If Wacker Neuson requires more time (up to 90 days), it will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. Any disclosures Wacker Neuson provides will only cover the 12-month period preceding the date it receives your verifiable consumer request. The response it provides will also explain the reasons Wacker Neuson cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, Wacker Neuson will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

Wacker Neuson does not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If Wacker Neuson determines that the request warrants a fee, it will tell you why it made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

e. Non-Discrimination

You have the right to not be discriminated against for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, Wacker Neuson will not:

  • Deny you goods or services;
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties;
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services; or
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. For example, we may provide discounted pricing for signing up for our mailing list. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program's material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

7. Other California Privacy Rights

California's "Shine the Light" law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of Wacker Neuson’s website that are California residents to request certain information regarding its disclosure of personal information to third parties for its direct marketing purposes.
