UTC Aerospace Systems and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “UTAS”), are responsible for this website. UTAS is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to this website. UTAS has implemented technical, administrative, and physical measures to safeguard any personal information that we may collect.
This Privacy Notice describes our practices related to personal information collected through UTAS websites and mobile applications, unless there is a separate privacy notice for a particular website or mobile application.
Does this Notice apply to all UTAS Websites?
This Privacy Notice applies to visitors of UTAS websites that link to this Privacy Notice. Individual websites for UTAS entities, services and products may adopt different privacy notices because the transactions taking place on those websites may be different. If a UTAS website has its own privacy notice, the provisions of that notice apply to that website.
What personal information does UTAS collect?
UTAS 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. UTAS 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 UTAS. The personal information that you may be requested to provide includes your name, email address, physical address, the company you work for and any other information you choose to provide. 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, UTAS 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 additional contact information. 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 UTAS is not responsible for and does not control how other parties may collect your information when you access our website(s).
How does UTAS 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;
- provide the information, item, or service you have requested;
- communicate with you about products, services, and events relating to UTAS;
- improve our products, services, and websites;
- evaluate your interest in and/or allow you to apply for employment with UTAS;
- verify your identity to ensure security for one of the other purposes listed here;

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 UTAS store your information?
Because UTAS and its parent company United Technologies Corporation (“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 within the UTAS and UTC group of companies 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.
UTAS relies on available legal mechanisms to enable the legal transfer of personal information across borders. To the extent that UTAS and UTC rely on the standard contractual clauses (also called the model clauses) or Binding Corporate Rules to authorize transfer, UTAS will comply with those requirements, including where there may be a conflict between those requirements and this Notice. To read UTC’s Binding Corporate Rules, click here to select the version in the language of your choosing.
Does UTAS use your personal information to contact you?
UTAS may use the personal information you provide to contact you about products, services, promotions, special offers, surveys, and other information that may be of interest to you. If you prefer not to receive such communications, please use the “unsubscribe” function within the website or let us know by sending an email to [email protected]. Also, UTAS will ensure that any marketing communications sent by electronic means will provide a simple method for you to opt-out or unsubscribe. 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?
UTAS may share your Personal Information with our subsidiaries and affiliated companies (the “UTC Group”). UTAS will not sell or otherwise share your personal information outside the UTC Group, except to:
- service providers UTAS has retained to perform services on our behalf. UTAS will only share your personal information with service providers whom UTAS has contractually restricted from using or disclosing the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements;
- comply with legal obligations, including but not limited to in response to a legitimate legal request from law enforcement authorities, courts, or other government regulators or authorities;
- investigate suspected or actual illegal activity;
- prevent physical harm or financial loss; or
- support the sale or transfer of all or a portion of our business or assets (including through bankruptcy).
Your personal information may also be maintained and processed by our service providers in countries other than the one in which it was collected, such as the United States, member states of the European Union, Canada, and other jurisdictions.
How long does UTAS retain personal information?
UTAS 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, UTAS will retain the data for as long as is required for the original purpose for which it was collected.
