What Information Do We Collect?
How Do We Collect Information?
We may collect information on our web site in two ways. The first way is by you voluntarily providing us with information through registration forms, email or similar means. We consider this “actively” collecting information because you have to voluntarily act to provide us with the information, e.g. you must fill out the form or email yourself. We only collect Personal Information actively.
The second way we may collect information is “passively”. We may collect information by tracking IP addresses or by using files called cookies to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We consider this passively collecting information because you do not have to voluntarily act to provide us with the information. We may collect this information merely through your use of this web site. We will not combine any Personal Information with the information that we collect passively. For example, we can not track what web pages you have seen but we may be able to know that a person (whose name we do not know) has looked at a particular web page.
How Do We Use the Information?
We may send you a periodic email, newsletter or other publication via email or regular mail using your Personal Information. Out of respect for the privacy of our users, upon request, Plast will not send such newsletter or other publication to you. We may post your Personal Information on our website. For example, we may post your name, and with your permission, contact information; or we may post pictures of members or their families (with their names and the location where the picture was taken) on the website. We may do this to make it easy for our members to contact each other and learn about what we are doing.
How Do We Disclose Information to Third Parties
We may post your Personal Information on our web site. We will not rent or sell your Personal Information to third parties. But if a third party learns about our web site that third party will be able to see your Personal Information.
How Do Our Public Forums Work?
This site may make forums available to users at various times. We may allow you to enter your Personal Information into a profile for the forum. This information will help identify you to other forum users, but will not be used by us. Please be aware, however, that if you post Personal Information online (through chat rooms, message boards, or email) this information can be collected and used by others. Always keep in mind that when you are in a public forum, you control the information you disclose.
