We will apply the terms of our Privacy Policy to any personal information received from a third-party, unless we have disclosed to you otherwise. Kadant is not responsible for these third-parties' dissemination of your personal information.

If you are a resident of a country in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), the personal information we collect from you may be transferred to and stored at a destination outside the EEA. The personal information may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA that work for us or one of our or third-party service providers. By submitting your personal information, you agree to this transfer, storing, and processing. We take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

If any personal information is provided to third-parties outside the EEA or who will access the information from outside the EEA, we will ensure approved safeguards are in place, such as the approved standard contractual clauses or the EU-US Privacy Shield.

INFORMATION SECURITY

We work hard to protect Kadant and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold. In particular:

  • We use encryption to keep your data private while in transit.
  • We review our information collection, storage, and processing practices, including physical security measures, to prevent unauthorized access to our systems.
  • We restrict access to personal information to Kadant employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.

While no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, we strive to protect the information submitted to us. We consider the sensitivity of the personal information we collect, process, and store and use the appropriate technology to protect your personal information. We cannot, however, guarantee its absolute security.

LINKS TO THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES

Our websites contain links to social networking and other websites and mobile applications operated and controlled by third-parties. Unless otherwise stated, any personal information you provide to any third-party website will be collected by that party and not by us and will be subject to that party’s privacy policy rather than this Privacy Policy.

COOKIES

We use “cookies” and other similar technologies (e.g., internet tag technologies, web beacons, and embedded scripts) to help provide you with a better, more personalized user experience. A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. We use these technologies to help us understand and improve how visitors use our websites, including which pages and products are viewed most frequently.

Our websites may include web beacons and cookies from third-party service providers. In some cases, that is because we have hired the third-party to provide services on our behalf, such as site analytics. Because your browser connects to those third parties' web servers to retrieve that content, those third parties can set or read their own cookies on your device and may collect information about your online activities across websites or online services.

You have a variety of tools to control cookies, web beacons and similar technologies, including browser controls to block and delete cookies and controls from some third-party analytics service providers to opt out of data collection through web beacons and similar technologies.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but provide controls that allow you to block or delete them. For example, in Google Chrome, you can block or delete cookies by clicking Settings > Show advanced settings > Content settings > Cookies. In Microsoft Edge, you can block or delete cookies by clicking Settings > Privacy > Cookies. Instructions for blocking or deleting cookies in other browsers may be available in each browser's privacy or help documentation.

Please note that if you choose to block cookies, you may not be able to use certain site features and preferences that are dependent on cookies may be lost. If you choose to delete cookies, settings and preferences controlled by those cookies will be deleted and may need to be recreated.

CHILDREN

We do not intend to solicit or collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, do not enter information into this site or engage in our services.

CONTACTING US

If you have questions about this Privacy Policy, please write to us by mail at Kadant Inc., Attn: Website Inquiries, One Technology Park Drive, Westford, MA 01886 USA, or email us at privacy@kadant.com.

CHANGES

We may update this Privacy Policy occasionally. Please check the “Effective Date” at the top of this page to see when this Privacy Policy was last revised. Unless otherwise noted, any changes we make to this Privacy Policy will become effective immediately once posted on this page. Your continued use of our websites following any changes to this Privacy Policy indicates your consent to the practices described in the revised Privacy Policy. Unless stated otherwise, our Privacy Policy applies to all information we have about you and your account.
