Pleisty respects your privacy and your preferences concerning the collection and use of your personal information. The following privacy policies explain the different ways your personal information is collected and used by Pleisty.

Personal Information: This policy covers the following personal information that Pleisty collects through your use of the Pleisty Web sites and in connection with off-line communications. Specifically, Pleisty may collect this information from offline and online registrations and forms, communications and interactions, sales inquiries and transactions. Pleisty also may use third party sources, such as opt-in lists, as specified in our Privacy Policy.

  • Contact information, such as name, physical address, telephone number(s), email address, and company. The majority of the information collected under this category is business contact information and when this information is collected in forms on our web site, it is collected and/or transmitted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

  • Transactional information, including information about the products and services you purchase or download or about which you make an inquiry.

  • User preferences, such as product requirements, areas of industry interest, newsletters, community choices and other information you select in the customer profile when registering on Pleisty.com or indicated by your use of the Pleisty.com Web sites.

  • Financial/credit card and payment information.

  • Event and conference participation information, such as lectures, classes or booths attended or visited during an event or conference hosted or attended by Pleisty. If we use electronic tracking technologies at an event, we will provide notice in the event registration materials and/or correspondence.

We may supplement information you provide with information received from third parties.

Electronic Communications Protocols and Cookies

In addition to the information specified above, Pleisty may collect information about your use of the Pleisty.com Web sites through electronic communications protocols and cookies. As is true when you visit most Web sites, Pleisty may automatically receive information from you as part of the communication connection itself, which often consists of network routing information (where you came from), equipment information (browser type), your IP address, and date and time. Pleisty also uses cookies, embedded URLs and embedded pixels to capture additional information.

Cookies

Pleisty's server will query your browser to see if there are "cookies" previously set by the Pleisty Web sites. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a Web server to store on a Web browser so it can later be read back from that browser. Cookies on the Web sites may collect a unique identifier, user preferences and profile information and membership information. Pleisty also uses cookies to collect general usage and volume statistical information that does not include personally identifiable information. Some cookies may remain on the user's computer after they leave the Web site, and the majority are set to expire within 30 – 365 days. Your browser may provide you with information and control over cookies. You can set your browser to alert you when a cookie is being used, and accept or reject the cookie. You can also set your browser to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers. Users can generally disable the cookie feature on their browser without affecting their ability to use the site, except in some cases where cookies are used as an essential security feature necessary for transaction completion. Cookies, however, are important to the proper functioning of a site and disabling them may degrade your experience and interfere with Web site features and customizations.

Flash Cookies

We also use flash cookies, also known as "local shared objects," on our sites that employ Flash technology. Flash cookies are small files similar to browser cookies and are used to remember the site's settings to personalize the look and feel of the site. Like normal cookies, Flash cookies are represented as small files on your computer. One method of preventing Flash cookies from being placed is to adjust your preferences in the Macromedia Website Privacy Settings Panel at macromedia.com .

Embedded URL's

Pleisty also uses a tracking technique that employs embedded URLs to allow use of the site without cookies. Embedded URLs allow limited information to follow you as you navigate the site, but is not associated with personal information and is not used beyond the session.

Embedded Pixels

On the Web site, Pleisty may use embedded pixel technologies on selected pages for the purposes of identifying unique user visits to the Pleisty.com Web sites as opposed to aggregate hits. In addition, embedded pixels or other technologies may be used in emails to provide information on when the email was opened to track marketing campaign responsiveness; information collected using these technologies may be associated with the recipient's email address.

Third Party Cookies

Pleisty can engage third party service providers to track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from visitors to the Web site. The service provider(s) set cookies on behalf of Pleisty. Pleisty also uses other third party cookies to track the performance of Pleisty advertisements on their Web sites. Pleisty may re-associate the information provided by the technologies directly above with personal information.

Third Party Cookies

Our Web site may include Widgets, which are interactive mini-programs that run on our site to provide specific services from Pleisty or another company (e.g., links to bookmarked sites). Personal information, such as your email address, may be collected through the Widgets. Cookies may also be set by the Widget to enable it to function properly. Information collected or used by a Widget, including cookie settings and preferences, is governed by the privacy policy of the company that created it.

The same information is collected (using the same methods) by the Pleisty Tracker on our customers' web sites.

The Pleisty Tracker

Based on the customers request and/or acceptance of our Services, we may provide them with a personalized Tracking Code to be installed in their web pages/website. The Pleisty Tracker is a standard JavaScript snippet (similar in function to the Google Analytics tracking code) that analyzes the activity of the online visitors on a specific website (where the tracker has been installed) and allows Pleisty to deliver personalized recommendations or other services.

The Pleisty Tracker does NOT collect private information about the online visitors accessing Your website, but only general usage and volume statistical information that does not include personally identifiable information.

The Pleisty Tracker used the same methods of collecting data to the ones on its own website, like Cookies, Flash Cookies, Embedded URLs, Embedded Pixels or Widgets.

The Pleisty Tracker Code:

  • is valid for only one website (the one for which it was personalized by Pleisty using a unique hash-ID) and it will not work on any other domain,

  • was designed to work with all browsers and on all platforms and it will not interfere with any other scripts and snippets You may have,

  • has no visible elements (when your webpage is viewed by a visitor),

  • is asynchronous and therefore does not make your website slower, nor does it affect any other performance parameters,

  • does not have access your database and does not grant anyone access to your IT systems,

  • does not collect confidential data (as it only tracks incoming traffic and visitor activity on the website),

  • as any JavaScript, is activated by the visitor’s browser (once it has loaded the webpage) and therefore runs exclusively on the visitor’s computer,

  • does not imply any contractual binding or other obligations from your part (except where a contract has already been signed).

Use and Sharing of Personal Information

Pleisty uses (and, where specified, shares) your personal information for the following purposes:

Pleisty may use personal information such as name, physical address, telephone number, email address, and company to engage in transactions with you, including contacting you about your order.

To contact a referral/"tell a friend".

If you elect to use our referral service to inform a friend about our site, we will ask you for the friend's name and email address.

Pleisty will use reasonable efforts to limit the personal information it provides for these purposes.

While Pleisty may share your personal information with agents and contractors in order to perform the functions listed above, including credit card clearing services, order fulfillment, and event, campaign and web site management, we require that they treat your personal information, and limit its use, in accordance with the standards specified in this policy.

Information-Sharing Choices

Pleisty only shares personal information with selected companies after providing users the ability to either opt out of or opt into the sharing. There are limitations to opting out of such sharing in the case of (1) joint sale or joint events where the data goes to both Pleisty and the other party at the same time; (2) where the customer has requested follow-up which involves Pleisty partners; and (3) where third parties are required to accomplish the transaction or perform the service.

Third Party Permission-Based Lists.

On occasion, Pleisty may use third-party lists to send communications about Pleisty products and services. These lists, which are maintained by third parties, include users eligible under applicable law to receive emails from other companies such as Pleisty. When we use such lists, the communications will include mechanisms to opt out of Pleisty marketing communications and the third party lists. If you have trouble opting out, or if you wish to make us aware of any issues related to a third-party mailing, you may contact us directly at privacy@pleisty.com
