Streamlight was founded on principles of trust and integrity and has become known in the industry for the delivery of outstanding products and services. The privacy and protection of your personal information is vitally important to us. It is for this reason we take the issue of safeguarding your privacy online very seriously.
In addition to reviewing this Statement, please read our Legal Notice. Your use of www.streamlight.com constitutes your agreement to the terms and conditions in the Notice.

Our goal is to provide you with an internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee data transmission over the Internet to be 100% secure. Accordingly, despite our efforts to protect your personal information, Streamlight cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from our online products or services. You transmit all such information at your own risk. However, once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
In some instances, we may collect the following information about you, either directly or through persons or entities acting on our behalf.
Information You Provide to Us
We collect information you provide directly to us, such as information resulting from your transactions with us, our affiliates, distributors and service centers, such as information you provide to us to on applications, forms, online registrations, product registration cards, surveys, and in connection with polls or contests, such as your name, address, and e-mail address. Regarding Credit Cards, we process credit card purchases through our U.S. domestic only Parts Store using a third party credit card processing service. Credit Card information through this store is not made available to us by this third party processing service.
Information We Collect through Your Use of our Online Services
We also automatically collect information when you visit our website, such as navigation patterns at the site on an aggregate basis and information we collect through Internet cookies or clear gifs, such as time spent on our website and which pages are visited. Internet cookies allow us to customize our Website for you based upon information you provide to us, such as by displaying only those items that may be of interest to you or making it easier for you to access your account information. For further information please see our Statement on Cookies and Similar Technologies below.
Information We Collect from Other Sources
We may also receive information from other sources and combine it with information we collect through from you. For example, we may obtain information about you from commercially available sources such as data aggregators and public databases. This information may include your name, demographic information, interests and publicly-observed data (such as from social media and shopping behavior), homeowner loss history, credit information, and information about your residential properties.
Overview of Cookies and Similar Technologies
"Cookies" are small text files that are stored on your browser or device by websites, apps, online media and advertisements. There are different types of cookies. Cookies served by the entity that operates the website or app you are visiting or using are called "first party cookies" (so cookies served by us while you are using our online services are first party cookies). Cookies served by companies that are not operating the website or app you are visiting or using are called "third party cookies" (so, we may allow an analytics partner to set a cookie on your computer via our online services while you visit our online services, and that would be a third party cookie). Cookies may also endure for different periods of time. "Session cookies" only last only as long as your browser or app is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser or app. Other cookies are "persistent cookies" meaning that they survive after your browser or app is closed (for example, they may recognize your computer when you re-open our online services).
"Pixel tags" (also called web beacons, clear GIFs or action tags) are small blocks of code installed on (or called by) a webpage, app or advertisement which can retrieve certain information about your device and browser, including device type, operating system, browser type and version, website visited, time of visit, referring website, IP address, and other similar information (including the small text file (the cookie) that uniquely identifies the device). Pixel tags can also be used to monitor the way in which visitors interact with websites, electronic communications and the content thereon/in. Pixels also provide the means by which third-party partners set and read browser cookies from a domain that they do not themselves operate and collect information about visitors to that domain, typically with the permission of the domain owner. "Software Development Kits" (also called SDKs) function like pixels and cookies, but operate in the mobile app context where pixels and cookies cannot always function. The primary app developer can install pieces of code (the SDK) from partners in the app, and thereby allow the partner to collect certain information about user interaction with the app and information about the user device and network information.
"Local storage" refers generally to other places on a browser or device where information can be stored by websites, ads, or third parties (such as HTML5 local storage and browser cache).
"Log file information" (also called "server logs") refers to information that is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a website, including your web request, IP address, browser type, referring/exit pages and URLs, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, language and other such information.
In this privacy statement, these and similar technologies are collectively referred to as "cookies and similar technologies".
Types and Purposes of Cookies and Similar Technologies
These cookies and similar technologies receive and track certain data about your device (such as your device type, operating system, device IP address, mobile network carrier, and anonymous device and advertising identifiers) and interaction with our online services, communications and advertisements (such as access dates and times, features or pages viewed, advertisements and ad features viewed, and approximate location based on your IP address). The following table sets out the different categories of cookies and similar technologies that our online services, electronic communication, and advertisements use and why we use them.
|These cookies and similar technologies are necessary to the operation of our online services. This includes technologies that (i) allow you access to our online services, (ii) are required to identify irregular online service behavior, prevent fraudulent activity and improve security, or (iii) that allow you to make use of our functions.
|These first- and third-party cookies and similar technologies allow us to offer you enhanced functionality when accessing or using our online services. This may include identifying you when you sign into our services or keeping track of your specified preferences, interests, or past items viewed or utilized so that we may enhance the presentation of content on our online services.
|Performance, Analytics and Research
|These first- and third-party cookies and similar technologies allow us to assess, improve and research the performance and use of our online services, and to better understand the interests of people who interact with our online services and ads. This includes our analytics activities that help us understand how our visitors use our online services, determine if you have interacted with our communications and ads, determine whether you have viewed an item or link, or to improve our online services content.
|Advertising and Targeting
These first- and third-party cookies and similar technologies are used to deliver relevant ads, and track ad campaign performance and efficiency.
Similarly, our partners may use a cookie or other technology to determine whether we have served an ad and how it performed, or to provide us with information about how you interact with them. One way we do so is by allowing network advertising companies with whom we work to place their own cookies when an individual visits our online services. This enables the network advertising company to recognize individuals who have previously visited our services. When the individual visits a third-party website on which that network advertising company has purchased ad space, the advertising company can then recognize the individual's interest in our products and services and deliver one of our advertisements.
For example, some of our online services use two Google Analytics Advertising Display Features, which collect information through cookies and similar technologies: Remarketing with Google Analytics and Demographics and Interests reporting. If you would like to opt-out of having your data used by these cookies, please use the Google Analytics opt-out available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
For more information about interest-based ads, or to opt out of having your web-browsing information used for targeting and behavioral advertising purposes by those network advertising companies that honor such requests, please visit: www.aboutads.info/choices.
Your Cookie Choices
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. However, in addition to the specific opt-out mechanisms described above, you can typically choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. To do so, please follow the instructions provided by your browser which are usually located within the "Help" or "Preferences" menu. Removing or rejecting browser cookies does not necessarily affect third-party Flash cookies (see "local storage" above) which may be used by us or our partners in connection with our online services. To delete or disable Flash cookies, please visit this site for more information.
If you would like to prohibit us and our approved partners from using cookies and other identification technologies on our mobile applications for purposes of serving interest-based advertisements and targeting, please follow these steps:

Web Browser Do Not Track (DNT) Headers
Some web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" signals to websites with which the browser communicates. Our online services do not currently respond to these "do-not-track" signals.
We use information in different ways, depending on the type of information and we use your information as otherwise described to you at the point of data collection and in this privacy statement. The information can be used for purposes such as personalization and verification. It can also be used to help us identify which areas of our site are of interest to our visitors. This lets you use our services more easily and to let us keep track of certain statistical information that helps us improve our site.

In addition to using this information for the purposes discussed in this privacy statement, we may disclose this information to third parties without restriction.
We may disclose personal information if we are required to do so by law or we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with legal process; (2) protect and defend our rights and property; (3) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Streamlight website; or (4) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public (among other things, this means that if you provide false information or attempt to pose as someone else, information about you may be disclosed as part of any investigation into your actions).
The privacy and protection of your personal information is vitally important to us. Streamlight does not make personal information available to any third parties without your permission. The use of, and access to, nonpublic personal information by Streamlight is restricted to those employees who need to know the information to provide products, services or support to you. We maintain appropriate physical, electronic, managerial and procedural safeguards to guard your nonpublic personal information provided online to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information.

You may also send us an e-mail message at email@example.com to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us.
