Privacy Policy

ST Engineering Supplies Sdn. Bhd. and its affiliate companies (collectively "ST") respect the privacy of its on-line visitors and recognize the importance of providing a secure environment for them. We have adopted a company wide On-Line Privacy Policy that guides how we collect, store, and use the information you provide us. This Privacy Policy details how ST safeguards the privacy of its on-line visitors and does not apply to information that may be collected by ST off-line. Please note that when you link to other sites from a ST website, this Privacy Policy does not apply to, and cannot control the activities on, those other sites.

What personal information is collected?

ST only collects personal information on a voluntary basis. If an on-line visitor submits information to ST, it will usually take the form of either: (1) the purchase of goods or services though our on-line stores, (2) product or account registration, or registration for online support participation, (3) message boards or forums, (4) warranty registrations, (5) contest registrations, (6) a consumer complaint, (7) surveys, (8) customer service or technical support, and/or (9) newsletters. Personal information collected may include your name, home address, phone number, and/or e-mail address. We do not require this information to gain access to our sites, however, you will not be able to utilize certain products, services, or features that require registration or receive materials such as newsletters unless such information is provided.

Visitors purchasing products or services will be required to provide additional information such as a valid credit card number, expiration date, and shipping and billing addresses.

Please note that, depending on the ST site that you are visiting, many of the activities listed above may not be available and, as such, personal information may not be collected.

What other types of information may we collect?

For some activities, we may ask you to create a username and password and/or to provide other, non-personal information such as your age, date of birth, gender, and/or occupation and/or employer-related information; and, combine such information with your personal information. In addition, your web browser or client software may transmit certain geographic information or information regarding your computer (capabilities, response time processing, etc.) to ST. ST may use this information to generate aggregate statistics about our user community and may provide such information to advertisers and/or our partners. In addition, ST may use such information for security, system integrity (the prevention of hacking, cheats, etc.), or enforcement purposes. From time to time, we may also post customer testimonials that contain personally identifiable information on ST’s websites. However, we will obtain the customer’s consent to post these testimonials prior to publication in accordance with the applicable ST Terms of Use (TOU).

How do we use your personal information?

The personal information you provide ST will allow us to fulfill your product or service order; alert you of new products or services, features, or enhancements; handle/route your customer service or technical support questions or issues; to send Refer-A-Friend emails; and/or notify you of upgrade opportunities, contests, promotions, or special events and offers. ST may enhance or merge the personal information collected at a ST site with data from third parties in order to update your contact information, perform market analysis, or improve our products, services, or systems. ST may also provide your personal information to other companies or organizations that offer products or services that may be of interest to you. In such cases, we will notify you that the information will be shared and provide you with an opportunity to opt-out.

Lastly, we may use your personal information for internal marketing, profiling, or demographic purposes, so we can adapt our products and services to better suit your needs. We do this to better understand and serve our customers.

Please be advised that personal information submitted by individuals acting solely in a business capacity (e.g., personal information contained in job applicant's resume) is not subject to the uses set forth above or to any other practices stated in this Privacy Policy.

What type of communications may I receive?

Special Offers and Updates

We will occasionally send you information on products, services, special deals, and promotions. Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications. Please see the “Choice” section below.

Service-related Announcements

We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature.

Customer Service

Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, in accordance with your wishes.

Refer a Friend

If you choose to use our refer-a-friend features, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. ST does not store this information and uses it for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and to track the success of our referral program.

Who is collecting your information?

When you are asked for information while on a ST site, you are sharing that information with ST, its parent, and its various affiliates and sister companies, unless specifically stated otherwise. As a result of this sharing, you may receive communications from any of ST's affiliates. In addition, some services are provided in conjunction with partner companies. If your personal information is being collected by another company other than ST, you will be notified at the time the information is collected. If you do not want your information shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer of information by not using that particular service or by not providing any information at that time.

Please be aware that we cannot control the activities of third parties to whom we provide data, and as such we cannot guarantee that they adhere to the same privacy and security procedures as ST.

Please be aware that advertisers or websites with links to and from our sites may collect personal information about you. And remember, this Privacy Policy does not apply to, and cannot control the activities of, those other advertisers or websites.

With whom may your personal information be shared?

ST may need to disclose your personal information to third party vendors to fulfill product orders or prizes, to process mailings, or to process, analyze, and/or store data on ST’s behalf. We will attempt to ensure that these entities do not use your personal information for any other purpose, and that they have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information they obtain from us. These service providers may not use your personal information for their own marketing purposes.

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law or in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against you if you are violating the Terms of Service or Use Agreements for a ST site or product, or may be causing injury to or interference (intentionally or unintentionally) with ST's rights or property, other users of a ST site or product, or anyone else who could be harmed by your activities. We also reserve the right to disclose your personal information if we have a good faith belief that it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activities.

As with any business, your personal information is also an asset of ST and will become part of our normal business records. As such, we may also disclose your personal information to a third party if we decide to sell a line of business to that third party, so you can continue to receive service and information in connection with that line of business with as little disruption as possible. Similarly, in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar event, your personal information may be transferred to ST's successor or assign.

ST sites may also have message boards, forums, and/or chat areas, where users can exchange ideas and communicate with one another. When posting to a message board, forum, or chat area, please be aware that the information is being made publicly available on-line and the user does so at his or her own risk. If your personal information is posted on one of our community forums, you may contact us at admin@stengineering.com.my. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.

What choices do I have regarding the collection, use, and distribution of my personal information?

ST allows you to control the way that we use personal identifying information that we might obtain. At the time you provide personal information, ST may give you the option of declining any future offers or information about new products, promotions, or services. In addition, many of the "mailings" ST may send you, such as newsletters, have procedures within them to cancel the receipt of any future mailings. Lastly, you may be given the opportunity to "opt-out" of certain features or functionality.

What are Internet protocol addresses?

An Internet protocol ("IP") address is the unique number assigned to your server or Internet Service Provider ("ISP"). ST may track such IP addresses for system administration, to report aggregate information, site tracking, security purposes, or to prevent our servers from being abused.

What do I do if I want to correct or delete my personal information?

If for any reason you are concerned with the way we are using your personal information, or would like to correct or request that we delete such personal information, please contact us by e-mailing us at admin@stengineering.com.my. We will respond to any request for access within 30 days.

In some cases, we may not be able to delete your personal information and will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Please note that the deletion of your data will lead to the termination of your account and applicable services.

How secure is my personal information?

ST has taken steps to assure that all information collected will remain secure and in its original form, i.e. free from any alteration. As such, access to all personal information is strictly controlled. When credit card information is transmitted, for example, we use industry standard, SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption. In addition, we will take reasonable steps to assure that third parties to whom we transfer any data will provide sufficient protection of personal information. We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services.

What if I have a question or complaint?

If you have any questions or wish to file a complaint, please feel free to e-mail us at admin@stengineering.com.my.
