We collect your personal information through the Site in obvious ways through accurately-labeled forms and input fields.

In some instances, we may combine other types of information about you with personal information, such as deriving geographical location from your IP address and combining behavioral data about your usage of the Site with your name. If we combine other types of information about you with your personal information, we will treat the combined information as personal information.

We may also receive your personal information when it is submitted through our Career Center. This information may include your name, contact information, employment history and information about others such as personal references. You determine what information you may provide to us for these purposes. Through the job application process and our human resources function, we may also collect and associate other information that you or third parties provide to us with the information you submit through the career center. Please see the section below entitled Wiland Career Center for additional information on how Wiland treats personal information submitted through the career center.
