Privacy Policy
National Gypsum does collect certain information about the users of our web site. Collection and use of this information is governed by National Gypsum Company’s Privacy Policy which is set forth below:

National Gypsum Company (“National Gypsum”) supports the highest standards of integrity for every online visitor. When you register at this or any National Gypsum web site, our goal is to respect your privacy. This Privacy Policy sets forth how we handle information we obtain from you and learn about you when you visit our web site, including

The choices available to you regarding how the information collected is used and to whom it is disseminated;

  • Your rights to access and correct or update any personally-identifiable information which we may collect; and
  • Our pledge to have reasonable security procedures that are in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control.
  • Information We Collect and How It Is Used
  • National Gypsum collects two types of information about you when you visit our site: personal information (including, by way of example only, your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address) and non-personal, aggregate information (such as information regarding the pages on our site that you have visited and your IP address).

Personal or Personally-Identifiable Information
The only personal or personally-identifying information we collect and store about you is the information that you choose to provide to us.

E-Mail
We will also gather your personally-identifiable information when you send us an e-mail. We will use this information to respond to your e-mail. We may also use the information to send you notifications about our services or our products.

Business Partners and Professional Visitors
Business partners and professional visitors requesting access to specialized content areas of this web site, if any, may be required to provide identifying information.

Sharing Your Information
We may share your personally-identifiable information within National Gypsum’s organization, including its subsidiaries and affiliates, but will not share it with others outside the National Gypsum organization.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information
The National Gypsum web site may collect non-personally identifiable information during your visit, such as type of browser, operating system, domain name, or IP address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the web. Web servers — the big computers that “serve” up web pages — automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you visit pages on any of National Gypsum’s web sites, our servers log your IP address. We do not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable information. This means that your session will be logged, but you remain anonymous to us. IP address information is used only to improve the service of the National Gypsum site that you visit, when you are visiting it, and is then discarded at the end of each session on our sites.

National Gypsum also collects information through “referrers” and various environmental variables. A “referrer” is information the web browser passes along to National Gypsum’s web server that references the URL from which you came. “Environmental variables” include, among other things, the domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed our web site, type of web browser and operating system or platform used, the Internet address of the web site you left to visit National Gypsum, the names of the pages you visit while at our web site, and the Internet address of the web site you then visit. We collect all of this information to allow us to detect general demographic trends, to provide information tailored to your interests and to enhance your experience on National Gypsum’s web sites. National Gypsum may store “referrer” information for a limited period of time prior to deleting this information.

Profiling
To help us improve our web site and to ensure that we make every effort to provide you with information and offers that are of interest to you, we may merge your personally-identifiable information with click-stream data and other data we have (including cookies and offline data). If we do this we will provide notice, as well as an opportunity to opt-out of such process, at the time and place of information collection and before data is entered on our system.

We may also develop a non-identifiable profile on you based on the pages within our site that you visit.

Links to Other Sites
This web site may contain links to other sites. National Gypsum is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that they visit. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected when you visit our web site.

Changes to This Policy
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our main company website and on our other websites, so you will always be aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

Special Policy Regarding Information from Children Under The Age of Thirteen
This web site is not targeted to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly request personally identifiable information from any child under the age of 13 without parental consent. When we do receive such information, we delete it as soon as we discover it and do not use it or share it with third parties.
