Privacy Policy


AMETEK, Inc. and it's business unit Spectro Analytical Instruments, Inc. is committed to protecting any personal information that you may provide to us. In particular, we believe it is important for you to know how we treat information about you that we may receive from this Web site.

Information Collected

Our web servers collect the domain names, not the e-mail addresses, of visitors. Our web servers also seek (as many Web sites do) to place a "cookie" (a small data file) on your computer's hard drive which allows the server to determine the computer when it visits again, in order to track statistical information about navigation to and throughout certain areas of our site, and to  Spectro Analytical Instruments, Inc. promotions on other sites. However, if you prefer not to accept cookies, you can set your browser to reject them or to alert you before one is placed.

In addition, there are portions of this Web site where we may need to collect personal information from you for a specific purpose, such as to provide you with certain information you request. The information collected from you may include your name, address, telephone, fax number, or e-mail address.

Use of Collected Information

Domain name information that we collect is not used to personally identify you and instead is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, etc. We use this information to measure the use of our site and to improve the content of our site.

When other information is collected from you, such as your name and e-mail address, we generally let you know at the time of collection how we will use the personal information. Usually, we use the personal information you provide only to respond to your inquiry or to process your request. This information may be shared with other AMETEK businesses, but only if necessary to fulfill your request or for related purposes.

We may share the personal information you provide with other companies we have hired to provide services for us. These companies - our vendors - are contractually bound to use personal information we share with them only to perform the services we have hired them to provide. We do not share, sell, or lease personal information about you to any third-parties for their marketing use. We will release information about you if you direct us to do so, if we are required by law to do so, or in other legally limited circumstances (for example, to protect your account from fraud).

If you register with one of AMETEK's other business units online, they may use this information to provide you with custom information about AMETEK offerings in support of your business needs. They may also seek to place a "cookie" (small data file) as discussed above in order to provide you with tailored information.

Links to Other Sites

Spectro Analytical Instruments, Inc. Web site may contain links to other sites such as Spectro Analytical Instruments, Inc.'s distributors and sales affiliates or other AMETEK business units. While we try to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the content, security, or privacy practices employed by other sites.

Security of Collected Information

We maintain strict physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to protect your personal information from unauthorized or inappropriate access. We restrict access to information about you to those AMETEK workers who need to know the information to respond to your inquiry or request. Workers who misuse personal information are subject to disciplinary action.  

Some of our web sites allow you to conduct e-commerce over them. Credit card information is passed along over a secure connection to a customer service representative for processing and is not stored on any of our web servers.

Notice of Disclosure Requirements to California Civil Code Section 1714.43, California Transparency in the Supply Chains Act of 2010

The subject law, effective January 1, 2012, requires AMETEK to disclose its efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from its direct supply chains. As part of its routine representations and certifications that it obtains from suppliers, AMETEK includes in its terms and conditions with its direct suppliers that materials incorporated into their products comply with all applicable laws, including slavery and human trafficking, of the country or countries in which they are doing business. AMETEK engages in verification of product supply chains, and conducts compliance audits and maintains internal accountability standards and training, which, where applicable, are adjusted to address human trafficking and slavery. AMETEK’s Supply Chain and Procurement personnel are aware of the need to ensure that none of its direct suppliers utilize forced labor or child labor.
