Privacy Policy

Privacy Notice

Crane Building Services and Utilities respects your right to privacy.  We are committed to collecting and using your personal data for necessary business purposes lawfully, fairly and transparently while ensuring that appropriate security measures are applied to protect the integrity and confidentiality of your personal data.  This is consistent with our policy of complying with all applicable privacy and data protection laws, and reflects the value we place on maintaining the trust of our customers, business partners, employees and others who share their personal information with us.

Overview of how we handle personal data

The term “personal data” refers to any data about you which you give to us, to identify you, in the course of our relationship, whether you are a customer, a supplier, an employee, an investor, or candidate applying for a job with us.

  • We only handle the personal data you provide to us and we will let you know what personal data we hold whenever you ask.  
  • When you share your personal data with us, we won’t share it with outside entities without informing you, unless we are required to do so by local laws.  
  • We only handle your personal data when we need to, such as when processing your application, when you want to buy our products or when we want to purchase something from you.  If you are an investor, we only use the data you have given us to provide you with the information you have requested.
  • We will not retain your data for longer than necessary. Once your data is no longer needed, we delete it.
  • If you would like us to update or delete your personal data, please let us know. We will do our best to handle your request in a timely manner. 
  • Your personal data will only be used to satisfy the purpose for which you shared it with us.  Should we wish to use it for another purpose we will get your permission in advance.
  • Should we need to complete a credit evaluation or handle your payment information, we will get your approval before doing so. 
  • Due to the sensitivity of our products, markets and customers, background checks may be periodically needed.  They are undertaken only by approved partners, and we will let you know when one is required.  
  • Where regulations require, we verify clearance against European External Action Service, United States Department of Commerce Denied Persons screening, and as required by local laws or specific industry requirements.

Overview of security policies

It is our responsibility to handle your personal data with care, and we have policies and technology in place designed to protect individuals’ personal data.  Our objective is to make your data available only to people who need to have access to it.

Consistent with this, we have security processes in place to identify potential inconsistencies in handling of personal data, including continuous review of logs and security files from our computerized systems.  Log and security files are used to track the flow of where your data may go.  When appropriate, we will involve approved third-party professionals or data security experts to assist in the maintenance of these systems.

For specialized data-related processes, we only use approved suppliers who have been selected for their ability to complete the assigned work securely and safely.  We hold these suppliers to the same standards to which we hold ourselves and we maintain records of their processing activities.

One such specialized process is email security.  All internet messages are filtered automatically for spam, viruses, and offensive terms by third-party service providers before reaching us.  As such, emails may travel across international borders and be stored in cloud-based servers for some of our operations.  We do not accept encrypted email messages, as we cannot determine if they are safe for our operations.

At all times, we respect our obligations towards and agreements with you, our business partners, and the local authorities.  When there appears to be a conflict between our obligations and agreements we will let you know and help get you the answers you need.

We are also committed to working with local data protection supervisory authorities to ensure the effectiveness of our privacy program.

We participate in the E.U.-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (the "Framework"), a framework designed to ensure that transfers of personal data between the EU and the US are covered by the same protections offered by EU law.Our participation in the Framework applies to personal data about employees received in the United States from the European Union ("EU Employee Data"). We commit to subjecting all EU Employee Data we receive to the Framework requirements. We provide notice to employees and other covered data subjects in Europe about the collection, use, and disclosure of their EU Employee Data through internal company policies.
