Website and Cookie Information
Cookies, Log Files, and Web Beacons
As is the case for most companies, Wanco employs the use of “cookies” and “log files” on our website. Cookies (information added to your computer’s hard drive when visiting certain websites) and log files (small text files automatically created when a user visits a site) help us understand whether you are a new or returning visitor. This information also helps us to better understand which features are of greatest interest to our users. Cookies and log files can often serve to improve your visit by saving your preferences. Most browsers provide instructions on how to manage your cookie preferences, including notifications. However, some website features may be disabled if cookies are disabled.
Certain tagging features on our site may contain web beacons. Web beacons may allow third parties to obtain information from the computer interacting with portions of our content, including the URL of a page on which a beacon appears, the type of browser used to view the page, the IP address of the computer, and cookie preferences.
Basis for Lawful Collection of Data
Our basis for the collection and processing of personal data is based on our commitment to better understand your needs and provide the best possible products and services. For example, we may seek to collect information to determine whether we have satisfactorily completed your transaction with us. Collected information may include the following:
- Full name, title, and name of organization

The processing of personal data may be required in order to carry out normal business operations, including providing you with a quote, entering into a contract with you, providing a product or service, or managing other types of transactions, such as the fulfillment of requests for samples or product literature.
After an initial business interaction, you have the option to opt in or opt out of receiving future marketing communications regarding our products and services. This option can be exercised through the checking of relevant boxes, the completion of relevant forms, or by following steps outlined through specific links (for example, an “Unsubscribe” link in an email) provided through additional communications as they relate to your interaction with us. Communications deemed to be relevant or of interest to you, based on prior interaction, may be sent until consent is removed.
