Peninsula Publishing, LLC, (PPLLC) the producer of the digital edition of Plastics Machinery Magazine and website www.plasticsmachinerymagazine.com (collectively called the "Digital Products"), has created this privacy statement to demonstrate our commitment to protect your privacy and disclose what information we collect and how we use it.
- In general, you may visit the Digital Products without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information.
- As you browse the Digital Products, the Digital Products collect log files, the IP address of your computer, and other standard tracking data used to evaluate usage patterns. Such information is aggregated with tracking data for all Digital Products visitors. We also use the aggregated information to evaluate products and services we may offer to you.
- Some portions of the Digital Products may require you to give us personally identifiable information such as your name, job title, company name, physical mailing address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers (Personal Information) and, if applicable, financial information such as your credit card information (Financial Information), for subscriptions to our publications.
- If you elect to provide us Personal Information, we use it primarily to deliver the service you requested. Other uses of Personal Information are described elsewhere in this Policy.
- If you submit Financial Information, we use that information primarily to collect payments for your purchases, orders, registrations etc.
- PPLLC uses a third party to process credit card transactions and does not store financial information, such as credit card information, on its website. We do retain the last four digits of the credit card number solely for customer service purposes.
Unless you opt-out, we may provide access to your Personal Information to PPLLC's affiliates, partners, or third parties licensed to access your Personal Information. To opt-out, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some companies unaffiliated with PPLLC provide email deployment services for our email messages. The personally identifiable information, such as e-mail address, we provide to these vendors for the purposes of e-mail deployment and is only used by them for that purpose and not for any other business activity.
In order to comply with the Federal CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, we also may provide lists of customers who opt-out of email promotions for PPLLC products to other companies, so they can be suppressed from mailings those companies send on PPLLC's behalf. In addition, if you unsubscribe from a mailing we send to our own list on behalf of a third party, your removal instruction may also be supplied to the third party and added to their own suppression file. If you continue receiving email after opting out, please contact us at email@example.com
We sometimes provide aggregated usage or tracking information collected from the Digital Products to third parties. No individual information is disclosed.

Any transmission is at your own risk and you acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible for any unauthorized use, distribution, damage or destruction of personal data, except to the extent we are required to accept such responsibility by the Act.
