Conflict of Interest
The mission of Laborde Tech is to help clients protect their production facilities and assets from corrosion, degradation, and chemical exposures.
We accomplish this by providing professional services, consultative project solutions, and technologically advanced products and systems. We understand that information used in project planning and engineering efforts contains potentially sensitive information and we protect it.
Laborde is committed to protecting our clients’ privacy and maintaining confidentiality. We have strong internal protocols to limit the use of and access to data during each stage of our projects and to protect it from dissemination to others. Likewise, any sub-consultants and subcontractors we may work with also have strict confidentiality policies. Laborde will continue to maintain and update our protocols as data sources and legislation continue to evolve.
Except where any specific provision is superseded by contract between you and Laborde, the following describes the Laborde policies on the collection, use, disclosure, and protection of the information you may provide when you use our websites, communicate with us verbally or over the web, or use our web-related services or work products. Even if any specific provision is superseded, the rest will remain effective.
Information Collected and Used by Laborde Tech
Laborde may collect, and may store, your information. We use that information to comply with our legal obligations, perform work and provide web-related services and work products, fulfill client’s requests, improve our services, engage in research and analysis relating to our services and work products, track usage of our websites and web-related services and work product, provide client support, message clients, provide security for our services and web-related work products, back up our systems, and prepare for disaster recovery.
We may store and use information that you provide in establishing your account with Laborde Tech, including your full name, email addresses, and any other information you may provide. You may modify some of this information through your account settings. Please contact Laborde Tech immediately if you believe that someone has created an unauthorized account using your information.
Information Shared with Third Parties
Some third parties may receive your information that Laborde collects under the following circumstances:
Laborde relies on the services of third-party providers to support or provide some parts of the services, such as communications, web hosting, network security, our own marketing of the Service, and others. In doing so, we may share your information with these third-party providers. These third-party providers may also share your information with us that they obtain in the process of providing their services. They may in turn share this information with their subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other affiliates. Some of the web pages created by Laborde will utilize framing techniques to serve content from third-party providers. In such cases, Laborde will provide your information to third-party providers. Each service provider is required to comply and abide by strict standards of confidentiality and professionalism.
Information Retained After Termination of Service Agreement
Laborde uses commercially reasonable efforts to maintain various safeguards to protect your information as well as any personal information provided to us, during its transmission and after it is received. However, we of course cannot guarantee total safety because no such safeguard can be 100% secure.

Acknowledge, disclose, and endeavor to resolve actual and apparent conflicts of interest once identified; and
