Privacy Policy

Polyform Products Company (“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.

We use the information we collect about you to enhance your Sculpey experiences and to bring you unique targeted offers and information that we think will be of interest to you. This privacy statement discloses the information gathering and privacy practices of our Web site. By accessing, browsing and/or using our Web site, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy in conjunction with this site’s Terms and Conditions.

What information does PPC collect? How do we use it?

ONLINE REGISTRATION

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. 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.

ONLINE SURVEYS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

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.

BROWSING

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.

COOKIES

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.

How does PPC protect PII?

When you register with our site or request information from us regarding our products or services, we protect your PII. Customer information is used to process requests and to contact the customer when necessary. Information supplied via online registration forms is used only by PPC and its distributors or retailers. Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, PPC does not sell or rent customer lists. PPC may transfer PII as part of a corporate reorganization, consolidation, merger, or the sale or transfer of substantially all of its assets.

PPC will disclose PII when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  1. Comply with a court order or legal process served on PPC;
  2. Protect and defend the rights or property of PPC or visitors to PPC;
  3. Identify persons who may be violating the law, the legal notice, or the rights of third parties;
  4. Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities; or
  5. Comply with other purposes that PPC believes to serve a legitimate purpose.

YOUR INFORMATION

If you give PPC your contact information or PII over this Web site, and you wish to amend that information, please send e-mail to [email protected].

OPT OUT

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, 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.

SECURITY

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.

CHILDREN’S’ PRIVACY

We do not collect PII from children under the age of 13. Therefore, we do not knowingly collect or use any PII from children or knowingly allow children to register with PPC. Any information that is inadvertently collected from children will be deleted as soon as it is recognized as such.

DISCLAIMERS

WHILE PPC HAS SAFEGUARDS IN PLACE TO PREVENT UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR INTERCEPTION, THERE IS NO ABSOLUTE GUARANTEE OF SECURITY. IN THE EVENT OF AN INTERCEPTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, PPC SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH INTERCEPTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, OR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS) SUFFERED BY A CUSTOMER OR USER, EVEN IF PPC HAS PREVIOUSLY BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
