Polyform Products Company, Inc. (“PPC”) is committed to protecting your privacy. Therefore, keeping your personal information secure and using it to ensure that you get the very best service are top priorities at PPC.
What information does PPC collect? How do we use it?
When you register with our site, we need to know certain Personally Identifiable Information (PII), including: your name, home or physical address (including the street name and name of your city or town), your e-mail address, your telephone number, your gender, your age category, your profession, your level of clay experience, and your main interest. This allows us to process your registration and maximize the benefit you obtain from our Web site. By giving us this PII, you give PPC, as well as the retailers that subscribe to our services, permission to contact you with announcements or notifications, including notice of special incentives and discounts.
We may use your PII, and certain details about you, to communicate with you via e-mail, direct-mail or telephone. The purpose of these communications will be to notify you about product availability, events and promotions, or conduct marketing and research programs, provide customer support, process transactions, respond to users' requests, send special offers and advertisements and we may seek your opinions and feedback. We may also use this information to create anonymous demographic and statistical reports that we may share with third parties. We may share this information with our consultants, suppliers and third parties solely for the purpose of implementing these activities, who will limit their use of your PII to those activities described in this policy. By providing us with any PII, you consent to the uses described herein.
We may also obtain information, including Personal Information, from third party sources. If we directly combine information from third parties with Personal Information that we have collected, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information and handle it in accordance with this Policy. In addition, please note that we may solicit third parties to collect Personal Information on our behalf and in such cases we instruct those third parties to comply with this Policy and all applicable data protection laws.
If you decide to participate in an online survey, subscribe to an e-mail list, or use one of our other promotional features, we may ask for your name e-mail address, and other pertinent information to tabulate survey results, and subscribe you to lists.
A visitor to our Web site is not required to reveal any PII. However, PPC’s servers may collect other information – such as information related to the make of a visitor’s browser software and the Internet domain name of the location from which the visitor enters. Such information helps us diagnose technical problems and manage our site by tracking a visitor’s interests. PPC uses this information only in the aggregate, so that we can better serve you.
PPC may use “cookies” for navigation of our Web site and for customization of information that we may present to you. A “cookie” is a small text file that does not personally identify users, although it does identify a user’s computer. Cookies do not pose a threat to your computer, and they do not contain viruses. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change this feature in your browser.
Location-Based Services. We may collect, use, and share (with PPC consultants, partners, distributors service providers and licensees) precise location data, including the real-time location of your mobile or fixed location device.

You may choose at any time to instruct us not to communicate with you by unsolicited e-mail, direct-mail or telephone, or to “opt out” of having your PII transferred to third parties. To make any of these choices, you’ll need to either send us an e-mail at [email protected] or send us a letter to Polyform Products Company, Inc. 1901 Estes Avenue, Elk Grove Village, IL 60007-5415. In addition, any e-mail marketing piece that you receive will include a “do not contact” mechanism allowing you to instruct the party sending the communication not to send any future e-mail communications. Finally, you may contact directly any direct-mail marketers who are sending you direct-mail pieces and instruct them to stop.
While security is important to PPC, due to the nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any data you submit to us. However, we will use reasonable efforts to treat as confidential any e-mails or inquiries sent to us for purpose of seeking information.
