How We Use Personal Information
We use your email address and your other personal information to help us efficiently operate the site, to contact you in connection with transactions and other activities on the site (including, but not limited to, confirmation emails or important news updates). These types of communications are known as “Operational Communications.” In some cases, Operational Communications may also contain commercial messages, such as banner ads and special offers. We also use personal information to send you newsletters, information, offers and other promotional materials for PL Machinery or third parties’ goods or services. These types of communications are known as “Marketing Communications” and by registering and/or transacting with the site you are opting in to receive these kinds of communications.
 
To operate the site, including processing your transactions and supporting your activities on the site, we may share your personal information with our agents, representatives, contractors and service providers so they can provide us with support services such as authorisation of credit card transactions, email origination, receipt or support services, customer relationship management services, order fulfilment, competitions and promotional fulfilment. We require these entities not to use your information for any other purpose.
 
By purchasing, registering, enquiring for products or services offered or sponsored by third parties on the site, or electing to receive communications (such as emails, magazine subscriptions or off-line communication) or electing to participate in competitions, sweepstakes or other programs (such as discount or rewards programs), offered or sponsored by third parties on the site, you consent to our providing your personal information to those third parties. Those third parties may use your personal information in accordance with their own privacy policies. You will need to contact those third parties to instruct them directly regarding your preferences for the use of your personal information by them. Additionally, you agree that we may use and disclose all such information so submitted to such third parties in the same manner in which we are entitled to use and disclose any other information you submit to us.
 
In some cases, we may enter into a relationship with another company in which we prominently display their brand name or trademarks on pages of the site and even re-brand entirely pages of the site. These pages are known as “Partner Pages” and these companies are known as “Partner Companies”.  If the page on which you submit information is a Partner Page, or was accessed by clicking on a link on a Partner Page, then we may share your personal information with the associated Partner Company. Partner Companies may use your personal information in accordance with their own privacy policies. You will need to contact Partner Companies to instruct them directly regarding your preferences for the use of your personal information by them. Additionally, you agree that we may use and disclose all such information so submitted to such Partner Companies in the same manner in which we are entitled to use and disclose any other information you submit to us. Some Partner Pages may contain an action tag (also known as a Web Beacon or a 1 pixel .gif file) that a third party, such as an advertising company may use to read cookies that it, or its clients, may have placed on your browser at other (non Mesh) web sites before your visit to the Site. This technology is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements on such other Websites that promote Partner Pages. Further, other such other third parties, may use the information collected through this technology to learn more about your visits to this Site and other Websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
 
 
Any third party with whom we are allowed to share your personal information is authorised to use your personal information in accordance with our contractual arrangements with such third parties and in accordance with their own privacy policies, over which we have no control, and you agree that we are not responsible or liable for any of their actions or omissions. Those who contact you will need to be instructed directly by you regarding your preferences for the use of your personal information by them.
