interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from our

customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid
sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive
e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Profile or use the footer

Does EmersonProcess share the Information It Receives?

our behalf. Examples include handling in-bound inquiries, fulfilling
literature requests, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail,
removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing
sales and marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including

customer service. They have only access to personal information needed to
perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

or buy companies, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions,
customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but
remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice

event that Emerson Process Management, LLLP, or substantially all of its
assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the

however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise
disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial
purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.

when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an
opportunity to choose not to share the information.
