These privacy practices and policies apply to your use of our service:
What information is collected?
When you visit our website or use our services, we log standard technical information, such as the numerical Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; and the Internet address of the website from which you followed a link to our site. We also collect other non-personal information — data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose.
We also collect and retain information you submit to us, which is always at your option. Through your user account, we make it easy for you to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date. We only retain your email address if you provide it to us. If you request to use our online service or become a member, we may ask for your name, title, email address, city, state, postal code, country of residence, and phone number, and we may invite you to select an account password.
How do we use your personal information?
The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on our latest product announcements, software updates, and upcoming events. We use personal information to help us develop, deliver, and improve our products, services, content, and advertising. This personal information also helps us to process and manage your membership and to improve our services, content, and advertising. We may additionally use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve our products, services, and customer communications. From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as alerts about our services, communications about purchases, and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with our services and website, members may not opt out of receiving these communications.
What third parties have access to member personal information?
From time to time, we may work with consultants or other third parties who may have access to information about our users, including personally identifiable information of our members. We restrict their use of personally identifiable information in accordance with their assigned tasks and subject to the limitations of this policy. Our site provides links to third-party websites. We don't control and are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third parties.
When and how is information otherwise shared with third parties?
We will disclose personally identifiable information about you to third parties only in these circumstances: (1) with your express consent, (2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, (3) when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to protect our rights or property, or (4) to any successor in a merger or acquisition. If we are required by law to disclose your information, unless prohibited we will attempt (by email) to provide you with notice in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. You will be responsible for making any objection.
How do I change or remove my information?
You may choose to correct, update, or delete the membership information you have submitted to us by accessing your personal membership account and updating your associated account information.
How do you secure information and how long do you keep it?
In some of our email messages, we use a "click-through URL" linked to content on the Plastic Trophy website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.
Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
What are my California privacy rights?
Residents of California (or any other state, for that matter) have the right to request in writing from businesses with whom they have an established business relationship the following: (i) a list of the categories of personal information (e.g., name, address, e-mail address, and the type of services provided to the customer) that a business has disclosed to third parties, during the immediately preceding calendar year, for the third parties' direct marketing purposes, and (ii) the names and addresses of all such third parties. To request the above information, please e-mail us at: email@example.com, or write to us at Plastic Trophy, 101 Cooper Street, Suite 213, Santa Cruz, CA 95060, with a reference to California Disclosure Information. We will respond to such written requests promptly (or more likely immediately, since the answer will be "none").
