Thank you for reviewing the Privacy Policy for Sncorp.com, your web portal into Sierra Nevada Corporation (“SNC”). This Privacy Policy further applies to the entire network of SNC Sites including, but not limited to the websites of SNC’s subsidiaries and affiliates. SNC is sensitive to the issue of confidentially in online dealings and is committed to protecting individual privacy. This Privacy Policy is intended to inform user about the general approach SNC uses in collecting, using and disseminating user information via Sncorp.com or other SNC Sites.

What data do we collect automatically and why?
When you visit Sncorp.com and you have not otherwise identified yourself (e.g., via registration with an SNC Site), our web server automatically recognizes your domain name, but not your e-mail address. We collect the domain name and monitor general site use and traffic pattern to improve our web site and the products and services we offer. SNC uses web server logs to collect data for metric purposes. Examples of the types of data collected on the logs are IP addresses, referral pages, date and time of Site access, and Site visited. We may use collected data to customize the content and/or layout of our page for each individual visitor.

Do we use Cookies or Tracers?
Cookies are small data files placed on your hard drive by a website server when you visit. Sncorp.com may use cookies set by SNC or other companies for tracking purposes or to make the Site easier to use. Cookies are currently the only way to effectively identify a unique anonymous visitor and understand how they navigate our web site. An anonymous visitor to our site remains anonymous in all cases. We do not attempt to identify visitors if they do not voluntarily submit personal information to us. Like many websites, Sncorp.com does not currently respond to “do not track” browser headers. But with most internet browsers, you can take steps to limit tracking by erasing cookies from your computer’s hard drive and by setting your browser to block all cookies or warn you before a cookie is stored. Cookies offer enhanced functionality to the user, but whether you allow a cookie to be placed on your computer is up to you.

In some instances, we use tracking scripts or “tracers” that recognize a unique identifier from a cookie placed on your hard drive by another website. These are used by SNC solely to gauge the success of our own advertising. For instance, we may use a tracer to determine whether you visit our employment pages after visiting a resume or career site where SNC placed a banner ad. We do not use tracers to gather information on your use of internet unrelated to SNC. Please note that SNC does not use tracers to identify your personal information, and you remain anonymous unless and until you choose to register.

Do we collect personal information?
In some cases, SNC requests personally identifiable information from you in order to satisfy the underlying transaction or purpose of your accessing the Site. Examples of personally identifiable information include names, e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, and the like. Please note that we do not consider aggregated information, from which personally identifiable information has been removed, to be private.

What about children’s privacy?  
SNC asks children under 18 not to transmit any information to the Site. SNC welcomes the parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 to use the Site and provide any information, service, or product gained for the Site for their child. The Learning Center page does not gather identifiable personal information and is operated as a static Site for informational purposes only.

What if data is transmitted internationally?
If you are one of our international guests, we realize that you may want to know whether your personal information will be transferred out of your country of origin. Please be aware that when you register or request a transaction on an SNC Site, your personal data may be transferred to computers in the United States in order to process your request.

Does this apply to all of the SNC Sites?
This applies to all of SNC Sites including, but not limited to the websites of SNC’s subsidiaries and affiliates.

What about external links?
For the convenience of our Site visitors, SNC may provide links to third party web sites that are external to SNC. These web sites are not operated or controlled by SNC, and SNC is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such external web sites.

How do we keep current?
From time to time, SNC may revise this Privacy Policy at its discretion. We note the date of the policy below, so you know when it was last updated. SNC advises you to check back periodically to review the Privacy Policy because users of the Site will be prospectively bound by the then-current version of this Privacy Policy.

Effective August 2014
