Request for Customer Data
Tripp Plastics requires customers to fill out a registration form prior to allowing them to make purchases through the Tripp Plastics web site. We ask for information such as your name, company address, work phone number, and email address. When you submit your registration form, this information travels via the Internet and is stored for future reference when you return to shop again.
Web Server Log Files
Like most standard web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses etc. are tied to personally identifiable information to enable our web based service.
Customer Data Protection
Tripp Plastics may reveal customer data to third parties including third party affiliates, software publishers, our sales representatives and business partners that may require information to invoice for a service or to properly register a software license to its purchaser. Additionally, we use an affiliate and/or an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purpose.
We use customer data for these primary purposes:
* To help us create web
site content most relevant to you
* To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information, and other new services from Tripp Plastics
* To ensure accurate information is provided to software providers for licensing purposes
* To complete purchases
Tripp Plastics will disclose your personal information, without notice, if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the ethics of the law or comply with legal process served on Tripp Plastics on the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Tripp Plastics, or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Trippplastics.com or the public.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that Tripp Plastics, Inc. or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
Children's Privacy (Under the Age of 13)
Tripp Plastics takes children's privacy seriously. We do not seek to collect personal information about children through our web site. If we become aware that a person submitting personal information to us through any part of our web site is a child, we delete the information as soon as we discover it and do not use it for any purpose, nor do we disclose it to third parties. Since we do not seek to collect any personal information about children, and we delete information collected inadvertently as soon as we discover that a child has submitted it, we typically retain no information about children that could be reviewed or deleted. If a parent requests review or deletion of information about their child before we have discovered and deleted the information, then we will of course honor that request.
Tripp Plastics periodically uses email to send newsletters, notify customers of current promotions, and to send updates about services and products we're offering. We use the email addresses you provide during registration or otherwise for these purposes. Customers and web site users can indicate whether or not they wish to receive email messages from us. If you do not wish to receive information regarding Tripp Plastic's products, services, and promotions, let us know and we'll discontinue sending you email marketing messages. You will continue to receive order confirmation via email as well as other correspondence that relates to quotes or orders you have placed with Tripp Plastics.
