What information does this website collect?


Cookies

LutronStore.com employs cookies in order for its server to recognize a return visitor as a unique user. The cookies placed by the Lutron server are readable only by Lutron, and cookies cannot access, read or modify any other data on a computer. Most web-browsers offer the option to refuse any cookie. Cookies themselves do not contain any personal information. We do link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site.


Web Beacons

LutronStore.com may also use “web beacon” technologies. When a visitor accesses pages on the LutronStore.com a web beacon, an anonymous notice of that visit is generated and processed. This may be processed by us or by our vendors. These web beacons work in conjunction with cookies to let us know what portions of our site are of interest to our visitors and to help us provide you with tailored information from our website.


If you turn off cookies, web beacon technologies will still detect anonymous visits, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other anonymous information or personally-identifiable information and are disregarded.


Information Gathered

LutronStore.com will gather information such as, what kind of browser visitors are on, what operating system they are using, their IP address, cookie information, time stamp (time page accessed as well as time spent per web page) and their click-stream information (for example, which pages they have viewed and how long they have been there). Lutron automatically receives and records such information on our server logs from your browser. Note that information is only gathered while the visitor is on the site. Lutron monitors how a visitor arrives at the site, but cannot and will not gather information about other third party sites the user has visited.


In certain sections of the site, Lutron may invite you to contact us to pose questions, request information, or complete a registration form. We may ask for Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to be entered as a means of registration before accessing a certain part of the site.
