Privacy

We value your privacy.


Privacy Statement

Protecting your privacy is a one of Segway Inc.'s ("Segway") top priorities. This statement discloses the information practices for Segway's web sites, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared. By visiting www.segway.com and its respective subdomains (i.e. social.segway.com), collectively "the Site", you accept the practices described in this Privacy Statement, as modified from time to time by us.

What kinds of Information we collect and how we use it:

  • Registration, Interactive Forms, and User Content
    www.segway.com: A user may wish to register on www.segway.com to receive informational and promotional email materials such as newsletters, product release announcements and participate in surveys. Users may also use a form to submit feedback to our site or to contact us.

    For ordinary users, only a name and email address is requested for these interactions. For business users, we also request additional information about the business, including the company name, address, and phone number. All such contacts and registrations are voluntary on the part of the user; therefore, the user has a choice as to whether or not to disclose this information.
  • Information Collection and Use
    If you request something from Segway, such as service, a callback, specific marketing materials, or feedback, we will use the information you provide to fulfill your request. To help us do this, we may share relevant information with others such as shipping carriers, product orientation providers, and marketing advisors. We may also contact you as a part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.
  • Information Sharing and Disclosure
    Segway does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or non-affiliated entities except: (i) as provided above; (ii) to provide services you have requested when we have your permission; or (iii) under the following circumstances:
    • We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
    • We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of the site's terms of use, or as otherwise required by law
    • We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of Segway under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to help Segway communicate with you about offers and marketing. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.
    • We transfer information about you if Segway is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, Segway will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.
  • Cookies
    A cookie is a small amount of data that often includes an anonymous unique identifier, which is sent to your browser from a web site's computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each web site can send its own cookie to your browser, if your browser's preferences allow it, but to protect your privacy, your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies stored on your computer by other sites.

    Segway uses cookies to store your user ID on your computer, allowing use of interactive areas on our Site. The cookie is placed on your computer only when you log into interactive sections of our Site and is removed once you have closed your web browser.

    You can configure your web browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the Help menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) You may reject all cookies sent to you without experiencing any loss of web site functionality.
