Use of the information:
There are no restrictions to the way Hubbell Incorporated can use or share anonymous information.

Hubbell Incorporated will be free to disclose and use the information for any purpose and through any means without any obligation whatsoever to any user, e.g., Hubbell Incorporated is free to reproduce, use, disclose, exhibit, display, transform, commercialize, create derivative works and distribute the Feedback to others without limitation. By choosing to send a message to Hubbell Incorporated, you acknowledge that all feedback will be considered to be non-confidential. Further, Hubbell Incorporated shall be free to use any ideas, inventions, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in such Feedback for any purpose whatsoever, including, but not limited to, developing, manufacturing and marketing products incorporating such Feedback.
Some of Hubbell Incorporated’s sites provide additional information and capabilities to users who register with the site to receive a username and password. That registration process will require that you provide Personal Information.
Hubbell Incorporated may use the Personal Information we collect to:

We also may use your personal information to help us in our business, including but not limited to improving our web site, marketing and/or product development.
Any information received by a Hubbell Incorporated site will be stored securely by using methods and protections that are as reasonably secure as practical, and only used by Hubbell Incorporated and its authorized affiliates (sales reps, etc.). Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we do not sell such information to others.
The Hubbell Incorporated computers (called "servers") process and store an enormous amount of information every day. These computer records are called "log files." Log files are used for analysis, research, auditing, and other purposes, as described above. After this information has been used, it is stored in a location that is inaccessible from the internet and is available to only a limited number of persons within Hubbell Incorporated. Until the information is stored, your Hubbell Incorporated ID may remain in our active server log files.
E-mail addresses provided at registration or by other mechanism may be used by Hubbell Incorporated or its affiliates for communication with you about an order or its status and, unless you opt-out, for communications about updates, products, and service information.
Except as otherwise written in this Visitor Privacy Statement, we will keep your personal information private and will not share it with others, unless the disclosure is necessary to:
- comply with a law or regulation, court order, subpoena or other legal process
- protect our rights or property
- protect someone's health or safety
Hubbell Incorporated may transfer the Personal Information to the subsidiaries, divisions, affiliates or other entities under common ownership with Hubbell Incorporated.

Hubbell Incorporated will not sell, exchange or publish your personal information without your permission, except as noted above or in conjunction with a corporate sale, merger, dissolution, acquisition, or other similar event.

- Our sites provide no legal advice
The information contained in this web site and the web sites of any company affiliated with Hubbell Incorporated are not intended to be legal advice. Any information posted on any Hubbell Incorporated web site should be considered as general information only.
- Technical terms we use may require special definitions
The information in our web sites may use terms that have technical meanings that may be different from their ordinary meanings and require specialist knowledge and expertise to understand properly and use effectively.
- Posted information may not be complete or may contain errors
We make our best efforts to provide comprehensive, complete and current information on our web sites. It is possible, however, that there may be additional information about one or more products that is not posted to a web site. Please contact one of our sales representatives or your local dealer if you need additional information about one of our products or any other information on a Hubbell Incorporated web site. The specifications of the products listed in our catalog sheets, correct at the date of publication, are subject to change without notice.
We will try to make sure the information we post is accurate, but we cannot guarantee perfection. The pages, databases, and pages accessible through this web site contain large quantities of information which may have been entered manually. Inevitably, errors and inaccuracies occur in such a process. Although efforts are made to identify such errors and inaccuracies, the information may nevertheless contains errors and inaccuracies.
Typographical or pictorial errors within our sites which are brought to our attention will be corrected in subsequent updates. Product dimensions in our catalog and installation sheets are nominal and are provided for the convenience of our customers. We reserve the right to make changes from time to time, without notice, which may change the dimensions or information shown. Please check with your Hubbell Incorporated product representative before using information from our web site for product development or final prints.
- Third party information may be unreliable
Some of the information contained in this web site is provided to Hubbell Incorporated and its affiliates by third parties. It is not possible for Hubbell Incorporated and its affiliates to check exhaustively the accuracy of all information provided by third parties. Inaccuracies may arise in that information in different ways, and those inaccuracies may not be evident to users of this web site. Reasonable efforts have been taken to provide accurate information in the web sites of Hubbell Incorporated and its affiliates.
Although we may provide links to other web sites as a matter of convenience for our users, we do not necessarily share their viewpoints and cannot guarantee the accuracy or authenticity of the information within those sites. Use these sites at your own risk. Under no circumstances is Hubbell Incorporated responsible or liable for any privacy, intellectual property, or other policy of a site for which a link is provided on a Hubbell Incorporated web site or a web site of a company affiliated with Hubbell Incorporated.
- We do not endorse other organizations or businesses
Links to the web sites of other organizations and businesses may be incorporated within a Hubbell Incorporated web site. Such links do not and should not be taken as implying an endorsement or approval of the content of those web sites, the activities of the organizations and businesses responsible for those web sites, or any policies associated with such web sites whether or not those policies are published.
- There are inherent security risks with on-line services
It is unlikely that there will ever be a security system that is utterly infallible and unbreakable by a concerted attack with enough time, skill, and resources. We will do the best that we can to protect communications between your computer and ours, but there are risks.
Hubbell Incorporated has three types of security associated with its web sites. One type is for a publicly available site - no login is required, and there is no encryption of any information. The second type is semi-secure - a login system requires a user ID and a password, but there is no encryption of any exchanged information. The third type of site has the highest security - a login system is used with an encrypted data communication system based on SSL encryption. This highest level of security would be used where financial information and orders are involved. Highly secured sites will generally have a URL that begins with https://. . ., and some browsers will show an icon of a closed lock to indicate a secured connection.
You should be aware, however, that there are some inherent risks associated with the transmission of information via the Internet, and with using SSL as the encryption mechanism. If you do not wish to use any of the Hubbell Incorporated company online services, you can transact with us by post, fax, telephone or in person at any of our offices.
In an effort to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to reasonably safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
