Use of Information
There are times when we may ask you to (or you may choose to) provide information about yourself, or your business, to assist us in meeting your various needs.

We may also use, disclose and communicate your information if required to do so by law including by an order of any court.
At times, we conduct on-line surveys to better understand the needs, profiles and experience of our visitors. You are never obligated to participate in our surveys. If you choose to participate however, we will use that information to tailor our Site and its contents to meet your needs.

Where BASF considers it appropriate, encryption and/or authentication tools are used to protect certain web-based information (e.g., using secure sockets layer encryption for Internet communications).
