Privacy Policy

We take your privacy very seriously. Please read this privacy policy carefully as it contains important information on who we are, how and why we may collect, store, use, and share your personal information. It also explains your rights in relation to your personal information and how to contact us or supervisory authorities in the event you have a complaint.

We collect, use and are responsible for certain personal information about you. When we do so we are subject to various laws in the United States and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which applies across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom), and we are responsible as “controller” of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.

The terms of this Privacy Policy relating to the GDPR apply only to those individuals using our services or purchasing our products from within the European Economic Area.

  1. Age of Majority. Our website is not intended for use by children under the age of majority (the threshold of adulthood as recognized or declared in law; the moment when minors cease to be considered such and assume legal control over their persons, actions, and decisions, thus terminating the control and legal responsibilities of their parents or guardian over them) in any jurisdiction this in which this site may be accessible. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of majority. If you are under the age of majority in the jurisdiction from which you are accessing our site, do not use or provide us with any information on this website or on or through any of its features. Do not provide us with your name, address, telephone number, email-address, or any username you may use. If we learn that we have collected information from an individual under the age of majority without proper parental consent, we shall delete that information. If you believe that we might have information from or about an individual under the age of majority, please contact us using the contact information in the How to Contact Us section of this Privacy Policy.

This personal information is required to provide products and services to you. If you do not provide personal information we ask for, it may delay or prevent us from providing our products and services to you.

  1. How Your Personal Information is Collected. We collect most of this personal information directly from you—in person, by telephone, text or email, and via our website. However, we may also collect information:
  2. From a third party with your consent (e.g., your bank);
  3. From cookies on our website; and
  4. Via our IT systems, including:
  5. Automated monitoring of our websites and other technical systems, such as our computer networks and connections, CCTV and access control systems, communications systems, email, and instant messaging systems.
  6. Use of “Cookies”. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.


We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.


You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you will not have access to many features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly. However, you can still place orders over the telephone by contacting customer service.

  1. How and Why We Use Your Personal Information. Under data protection law, we can only use your personal information if we have a proper reason for doing so, e.g.:

We will always treat your personal information with the utmost respect and never sell it to other organizations outside of Lynol Cooling Systems, Inc. for marketing purposes.

You have the right to opt out of receiving promotional communications at any time by:

We may disclose and exchange information with law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.

We may also need to share some personal information with other parties, such as potential buyers of some or all of our business or during a re-structuring. We will typically anonymize information, but this may not always be possible. The recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations.

We will not share your personal information with any other third party.

  1. Personal Information We Sold or Disclosed for a Business Purpose. We have not sold or disclosed to a third party any personal information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.
  2. Where Your Personal Information is Held. Information may be held at our offices and those of our service providers, representatives and agents as described above (see above: “Who We Share Your Personal Information with”).

Some of these third parties may be based outside the European Economic Area. For more information, including on how we safeguard your personal information when this occurs, see below: “Transferring Your Personal Information Out of the EEA”.

  1. How Long Your Personal Information Will Be Kept. We will keep your personal information while you have an account with us or while we are providing products and services to you. Thereafter, we will keep your personal information for as long as is necessary:

  4. If you are based outside the EEA; or
  5. These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law.
