We may require visitor registration to grant access to personalized services which include software downloads, surveys, email newsletters and mailing lists. Pentair only uses this information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with the Pentair Internet Privacy Policy and other applicable laws.

Upon your request and within a reasonable period of time, we will inform you about the type of personal information we have about you, the purposes for which we have it and the possible recipients or types of recipients.
