OUR SHARING OF YOUR INFORMATION
ANDRITZ does not sell or rent your personal information to non-affiliated third parties for those parties’ promotional purposes, except that as part of our customer care and marketing efforts, we may provide your name, address, contact details and similar information. In addition, ANDRITZ may share the personal information you submit with other members of our affiliated group of companies.

In addition, in the event of a corporate transaction such as a sale, merger or reorganization involving ANDRITZ or its parent companies, personal information may be disclosed or transferred to the acquiring company(ies). ANDRITZ may collect and share aggregate website statistical information (such as sales, traffic patterns or related information) with third parties.

Personal data will generally not be transmitted to recipients outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, unless it is required to fulfill the above-mentioned purposes.

Any personal information submitted to ANDRITZ in writing is kept in a secure location. Our instructions to our employees and computer service providers with access to your personal information state that they must comply with the principles set forth in this data privacy declaration and applicable laws.
Suggestions, materials or other intellectual property sent or transmitted to ANDRITZ via our sites or otherwise are governed by the separate terms applicable to such materials identified at the time of submission (if any).
