This policy covers how Carrier InterAmerica Corporation collects and treats information received via its web site. Such information may include information like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and other personal indicia.
This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Carrier InterAmerica Corporation does not own or control, or to people that Carrier InterAmerica Corporation does not employ or manage. In addition, certain Carrier InterAmerica Corporation associated companies such as United Technologies have their own privacy statements which can be viewed by clicking on the links.

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's machine containing information about the user. By having our site set a cookie the user would not have to enter their personal information more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site; for example, the user will not receive personalized service. Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Log files capture the cookie ID and IP address but are not linked in the web traffic analysis.
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We partner with other parties to provide specific web related services. When the user uses these services on our web site, we will only share names, or other information that is necessary for the third party to provide the service. Services include online surveys, search, dealer locators, contact us or customer service forms. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing the requested services.
Carrier Corporation's web sites contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Carrier InterAmerica Corporation is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested includes user information (email address, such as visitor or customer type, reason for purchase) and demographic information (country, age level). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site, and better understanding customer demographics.
This web site takes stringent precautions to protect our users' information. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also have stringent protection policies for protecting user information off-line. All of our users' information , is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment.
If you have any questions about the security at our web site, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order for Carrier InterAmerica Corporation to better understand customer demographics, it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources. In order for Carrier Corporation's web site to enhance its ability to tailor the site to an individual's preference, we may combine information about the purchasing habits of users to create an aggregated segmentation of information.
