Collection of Personal Information
You may choose to give us personal information directly in a variety of situations. For example, you may want to give us your name and contact information to communicate with you, to order a product, to process an order, to register for a service or to do business with us if you are a supplier or a business partner.

Collecting information in this manner allows us to collect statistics about the usage and effectiveness of our Web site and to personalize your experience and tailor our interactions with you.
From time to time, we may also collect information that pertains to you indirectly through other sources, such as list vendors. When we do so, we ask the vendors to confirm that the information was legally acquired by the third party and that we have the right to obtain it from them and use it.
The information that we collect, either directly or indirectly, may be combined to help us improve its overall accuracy and completeness and to help us better tailor our interactions with you.

Our Privacy Statement and our practices are designed to provide a globally consistent level of protection for personal information all over the world. This means that even in countries whose laws provide for less protection for your information, POLLOCK INDUSTRIES will still handle your information in the manner described here.
In some cases, POLLOCK INDUSTRIES uses suppliers located in various countries to collect, use, analyze, and otherwise process information on its behalf. It is POLLOCK INDUSTRIES' practice to require such suppliers to handle information in a manner consistent with POLLOCK INDUSTRIES' policies.
From time to time, we may disclose information that identifies you at an individual level and which we collected on our Web site to other non-POLLOCK INDUSTRIES entities that are not acting as our suppliers, such as our business partners and consultants.

Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other business reasons, POLLOCK INDUSTRIES decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize businesses. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or the receipt of such information from sellers. It is POLLOCK INDUSTRIES’ practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.
Please be aware that in certain circumstances, personal information may be subject to disclosure to government agencies pursuant to judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process. We may also share your information to protect the rights or property of POLLOCK INDUSTRIES, our business partners, suppliers or clients, and others when we have reasonable grounds to believe that such rights or property have been or could be affected.

POLLOCK INDUSTRIES implements reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to help us protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. For example, we encrypt certain sensitive personal information such as credit card information when we transmit such information over the Internet.

We will retain information you provide for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services.

While cookies are often only used to measure Web site usage (such as number of visitors and duration of visit) and effectiveness (such as topics visitors are most interested in) and to allow for ease of navigation or use and, as such, are not associated with any personal information, they are also used at times to personalize a known visitor's experience to a Web site by being associated with profile information or user preferences.
