When you request pages from our Web site, our servers may log your IP Address and sometimes your domain name.

Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies to remember information customers give us so that they don't have to reenter it each time they visit the Site. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits.

For information on how to find and control your cookies, please refer to:


Schiel & Denver will take reasonable steps to protect the security and integrity of all Personal Information provided to this Web site. However, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our system or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers.

If you contact us by e-mail or a “contact us” or similar feature on our Web site, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. A third party could view information you send by these methods in transit.

You may be able to create an account on our Web site with a username and password. If so, you are responsible for maintaining the strict confidentiality of your account password, and you shall be responsible for any access to or use of the Web site by you or any person or entity using your password, whether or not such access or use has been authorized by or on behalf of you, and whether or not such person or entity is your employee or agent.

You agree to:

(a) immediately notify Schiel & Denver of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and;

(b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. It is your sole responsibility to control the dissemination and use of your password, control access to and use of your account, and notify Schiel & Denver when you desire to cancel your account on this Web site. We will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this provision.

We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission.

In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your Personal Information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail. You consent to our use of e-mail as a means of such notification. If you do not want us to use e-mail to notify you in such an event, you may e-mail us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and provide us with an alternative means of contacting you in such an event, such as a physical mailing address.

Consumer Alert – Beware of phishing

With identity theft a continuing problem, it has become increasingly common for unauthorized individuals to send e-mail messages to consumers, purporting to represent a legitimate company such as a bank or on-line merchant, requesting that the consumer provide personal, often sensitive information. Sometimes, the domain name of the e-mail address from which the e-mail appears to have been sent, and the domain name of the web site requesting such information, appears to be the domain name of a legitimate, trusted company. In reality, such sensitive information is received by an unauthorized individual to be used for purposes of identity theft. This illegal activity has come to be known as "phishing."

If you receive an e-mail or other correspondence requesting that you provide any sensitive information (including your Site password or credit card information) via e-mail or to a web site that does not seem to be affiliated with our Web site, or that otherwise seems suspicious to you, please do not provide such information, and report such request to us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Links to Third Party Sites

Our site contains links to other sites that are not under our control, even though they may use the Schiel & Denver name or logo on their site through an agreement with us. Such other sites do not necessarily follow our privacy policies, and may place their own cookies on your computer. This practice is standard on the Web, and we do not control cookies placed on your computer by third parties whose advertising or links appear on our site.

Information for Parents & Guardians

This Site does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13 online or by e-mail. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received Personal Information online from a child under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our records. Children under 13 should not send us any information about themselves online or by e-mail, including information such as their name, postal address or e-mail address.
