Mag Instrument, Inc. ("Mag Instrument") is committed to respecting and protecting your online privacy. This Privacy Policy ("Policy") describes what information we may collect from our consumer Web site visitors, and how we use this information and protect it. In addition to our Web site located at www.maglite.com, we may own other domain names that may point to this Web site. Please note that this Policy applies only to our Web site, and not to any Web sites maintained by other companies or organizations to which we may provide a link. This Policy does not apply to Web sites that may be operated by distributors of our products.

Please be sure to read this Policy before submitting any information to our Web site. By accessing and using our Web site you agree to the terms of this Policy.

Personally Identifiable Information that We Might Collect from You

Mag Instrument only collects personal information from you on a voluntary basis. When you submit personal information to Mag Instrument, it will usually take the form of: (1) Web site registration; (2) customer service; and/or (3) online submission of your resume for job openings. The information we collect may include personal information such as your name, email address, phone and fax numbers and home address. In addition, you may submit demographic and customer information such as your age, occupation and hobbies, and the reason(s) for the purchase of our products and/or intended use. We may also ask about your preferences and interests in order to notify you of future product launches and company activities that may be of interest to you.

In particular, we may collect data through:

  • Web Site Registration
    Mag Instrument may collect personal information from you when registering as a product user, or for warranty purposes. Information collected from those who register on our Web site is used to provide site registrants the benefits associated with such registration (e.g., warranty-related information or updates, and product launch and news information).


  • Customer Service
    In order to provide you with the best possible customer service, Mag Instrument may collect personal information from you which information will be used only for the purpose of solving your customer support inquiry and/or responding to your questions or request for additional information.


  • Resume Submission
    Mag Instrument allows for the online submission of resumes. Personal information collected from resumes will be used solely for the purpose of accepting and evaluating candidate submissions for job openings. The information may be shared within the organization and is not subject to the terms of this Policy.

Whatever the activity may be, we will only collect information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to fulfill your requests and our business objectives.

Information Automatically Collected and Stored and the Use of "Cookies"

As many other companies do, Mag Instrument automatically collects and temporarily stores data through the use of "cookies," which information serves to control various aspects of our Website, such as whether to show an introduction page, or to pass data from one area of our site to another. The purpose of this technology and the information it provides is to help us improve our Web site experience for visitors and serve up more customized content, tools and services to a given site visitor. We may automatically collect from you and temporarily store information including:

  • The domain and host from which you access the Internet


  • The Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to our Web site, if applicable


  • Your Internet protocol (IP) address and


  • Your computer's operating system and browser software

No information in these "cookies" contains any personal or otherwise usable information about the consumer.

IP Addresses

Our website uses Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) so you can access the Internet. Sometimes, an IP address changes each time you connect to the Internet. This is called a "dynamic" IP address.

However, if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, it is possible that the IP address that we collect, or even perhaps a cookie we use, may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because, with some broadband connections, your IP address doesn't change ("static" IP address) and could be associated with your personal computer.

When and How Mag Instrument Uses or Discloses Information

We do not provide personally identifiable information about our Web site visitors to third parties, except to (i) vendors and service providers who may assist us; (ii) in connection with security related or law enforcement investigations or in the course of cooperating with authorities; (iii) to comply with legal requirements or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; (iv) when we believe it is necessary to share information in order to assist in an investigation regarding, or to prevent, illegal activities, suspected fraud, or situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person; and (v) we may transfer such information in the future upon a sale or merger of our business or upon a sale of our assets that includes our Web site. Any vendor or service provider to whom we may provide personally identifiable information is required to keep your information confidential in accordance with this Policy.

Communications You Receive - Permission To Contact You And/or Send You Materials and Information

Only when specifically requested by our Web site visitors will the information we collect be used to respond to visitors' inquiries and/or to send visitors information/newsletters and notify our customers about new products we may offer, product developments, or other corporate activities that may be of interest. We occasionally send out an email newsletter to our customers to highlight features of our products, new product launches and the like. In other words, it is only when you have volunteered information about yourself, or have specifically requested to receive such contact and information from us-that we come into possession of and/or use any of your personally identifiable information.
