Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy explains how Sokkia Corporation (“Sokkia”) collects, uses and discloses personal information through this website. “Personal information” is information about an identifiable individual.  

What information does Sokkia collect?

You are under no obligation to provide any personal information to Sokkia though this website. However the information Sokkia learns from customers helps us personalize and improve the experience at Sokkia's websites. If you don't provide such information, some features of Sokkia's websites may not be available to you.

Sokkia collects certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, Sokkia uses "cookies", and obtains certain types of information when your Web browser accesses a Sokkia website. We also collect information you voluntarily provide to Sokkia through the website, for example by using the “Contact us” page or, from time to time, through customer satisfaction surveys.

The information we collect may include your name, address, email address, telephone number customer purchasing habits, warranty information and/or other purchasing information or other information volunteered by you. Sokkia may also collect other technical information such as your IP address, MAC address, internet service provider, computer operating platform, web browser, and other similar information.

How does Sokkia use and share this information?

Sokkia may use this information for purposes such as:

• personalizing your experience at our websites;

• selectively sending you information that may be of interest to you;

• contests and sweepstakes;

• market research and on-line surveys;

• contacting you about warranty, service and sales issues; and

• automatic monitoring of statistical information to determine how Sokkia's web sites are being used.

In addition, Sokkia may use and disclose your personal information to others to the extent required to protect the rights, property or safety of Sokkia's websites, its users or others; in connection with any legal proceeding; and to meet all relevant Canadian and international regulatory, legal, insurance, audit, security and processing requirements.

Sokkia may disclose your personal information on a confidential basis to parties connected with the contemplated or actual financing, insuring, sale, assignment or other disposal of all or part of our business or assets, including for the purposes of determining whether to proceed or continue with such transaction or business relationship or fulfilling any records or other reporting requirements to such parties.

We do not sell your personal information to third parties. Sokkia may share personal information with business partners in order to improve your experience with Sokkia and for Sokkia's marketing purposes. Sokkia may share non-personal aggregate data about sales, customers, visitors to the site and related site information with third parties.

How does Sokkia use cookies and related technologies?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your Internet browser and that can collect and store information. We use cookies to better understand how you use our site, to make sure our ads and dynamic content are served correctly, to improve the performance of our site and to improve your experience. You may manage how your browser handles cookies and related technologies by adjusting your device’s privacy and security settings.  However, please be aware that blocking cookies may affect your browsing experience and may impede your ability to use certain features of our site.

We also use service providers, including Google Analytics, to perform analytics and advertise our products and services on websites not affiliated with us. In connection with these advertising services, we use cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to collect information about how you use our site or other websites in order to perform tracking and marketing analytics or serve advertisements that are more likely to be of interest to you.  These third party service providers may also collect and use certain aggregated or anonymized information, which is subject to their own privacy policies. Google provides users an opportunity to opt-out of the Google Analytics features through Google’s Ads Settings and their web browser opt-out plugin.

Is my information protected?

Sokkia has technical, contractual, administrative and physical security measures to protect your personal information in a manner that is reasonable and appropriate to the nature of the personal information.
