In line with Article 13 sec. 1 and 2 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) we hereby inform that:

This Privacy Notice describes our practices related to personal information collected through UTC websites and mobile applications, unless there is a separate privacy notice for a particular website or mobile application.
UTC has a separate General Policy Notice that covers personal information that UTC may collect and process separate and apart from its websites and mobile applications. If you apply for a job through this website, UTC’s use of the personal information you provide through the Careers section is governed by UTC’s Career’s Applicant Privacy Notice, and not this Privacy Notice. For individuals in the United States, UTC has a HIPAA Privacy Notice and Privacy Protection Policy for Social Security Numbers.
What personal information does UTC collect?
UTC monitors user traffic patterns throughout the website according to a user's domain name, browser type, date and time of access, and pages viewed. Our Web servers collect the domain names but not the email addresses of visitors. This information is collected in order to measure the number of visitors to our website and to determine which areas of the website users find useful based upon the amount of traffic to particular areas. UTC uses this information to enhance users’ experience at the website and to better prepare future content based on the interests of users.
A visitor to our website may be asked to provide personal information to receive a response or some other service from UTC. The personal information that you may be requested to provide includes your name, email address, phone number, home address/contact address. The collection of information will be transparent to you – you will be asked for it and will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to provide it. If you choose not to provide any of the personal information requested, UTC may be unable to complete the transaction you have requested.
To use certain sections of our website, you must register. If you register, we will require that you provide your name, email address, phone number, home address/contact address, login. You will not be able to register without providing that information.
Your mobile provider may have a conflicting privacy position that captures personal information when you visit our website, but UTC is not responsible for and does not control how other parties may collect your information when you access our website(s).
How does UTC use the personal information it collects?
Personal information collected will only be used to:
- conduct basic business operations, such as communicate with customers and business planning;
- provide investor services;

- communicate with you about products, services, and events relating to UTC;
- improve our products, services, and websites;

Except where used in support of a contract with you or to fulfill a legal obligation, our use of your personal information will be only for legitimate business interests as set forth above.
Where does UTC store your information?
Because UTC is a global company with locations in many different countries, we may transfer your information from one legal entity to another or from one country to another in order to accomplish the purposes listed above. These countries include, at a minimum, the United States, the many of the member states of the European Union, Canada, and other countries, including some in Asia. We will transfer your personal information consistent with applicable legal requirements and only to the extent necessary for the purposes set forth above.
UTC relies on available legal mechanisms to enable the legal transfer of personal information across borders. To the extent that UTC relies on the standard contractual clauses (also called the model clauses) or Binding Corporate Rules to authorize transfer, UTC will comply with those requirements, including where there may be a conflict between those requirements and this Notice.

If you unsubscribe from marketing communications, you may continue to receive communications about your account or transactions with us.
Does UTC share the information it collects?
UTC may share your Personal Information with our subsidiaries and affiliated companies (the “UTC Group”). UTC will not sell or otherwise share your personal information outside the UTC Group, except to:

How long does UTC retain personal information?
UTC will retain personal information as long as needed to comply with its contractual and legal obligations. If the personal information is not subject to contractual or legal obligations, UTC will retain the data for as long as is required for the original purpose for which it was collected.
This website may also use web beacons. A web beacon is usually a pixel on a website that can used to track whether a user has visited a particular website to deliver targeted advertising. Web beacons are used in combination with cookies, which means that, if you turn off your browser's cookies, the web beacons will not be able to track your activity. The web beacon will still count a Website visit, but your unique information will not be recorded.
What should you understand about the third-party links that may appear on this website?
In some instances, UTC may provide links to non-UTC controlled websites, which UTC will make reasonable efforts to identify as such. UTC does not control such third-party websites, however, and cannot be responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other websites.
