Information about privacy protection
United Technologies Corporation and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “UTC”), including Pratt & Whitney Kalisz Sp. z o.o..; Elektryczna 4a, 62-800 Kalisz, Polska, are responsible for this website.
UTC is taking steps to protect the privacy of those who visit the site. UTC has implemented technical, administrative and physical measures to protect the personal data that may be collected.
This Privacy Notice describes our practices related to personal information collected through UTC websites, unless there is a separate privacy notice for the particular website.
UTC has a separate General Privacy Notice that covers personal information that UTC may collect and process separate and apart from its websites. If you apply for a job through this website, UTC’s use of the personal information you provide through the Careers section is governed by UTC’s Job Applicant Privacy Notice and not this Privacy Notice.
What personal information does UTC collect?
UTC monitors user traffic patterns throughout the website according to a user’s domain name, browser type, date and time of access, and pages viewed. Our web servers collect domain names, not visitors’ email addresses. This information is collected in order to measure the number of visitors to our website and to determine which areas users find useful based upon the traffic to particular areas. UTC uses this information to enhance visitors’ experience and to better prepare future content based on the interests of visitors.
A visitor to our website may be asked to provide personal information to receive a response or some other service from UTC. The personal information that you may be requested to provide includes your name, email address, home/mailing address and phone number. The collection of information will be transparent to you – you will be asked for it and will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to provide it.
If you choose not to provide any of the personal information requested, UTC may be unable to complete the transaction you have requested.
Registration is required to use certain sections of our site. During registration you will be required to provide the following data: Name, email address, identification login, phone number, home address. You will not be able to register without providing this information.
Your mobile provider may have a conflicting privacy position that captures personal information when you visit our website, but UTC is not responsible for and does not control how other parties may collect your information when you access our website(s).
