Privacy Policy and Legal Notice

PRIVACY POLICY

 

Laminex, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries (collectively, “Laminex, Inc.”) respect your privacy.  This Laminex Website Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) identifies the ways in which we collect your data, what we will do with the data collected and your choices relating to our collection and use of your data.

This policy is available on all of our websites via a link on all web pages, commonly at the bottom of the screen.

 

We take privacy very seriously and in compiling this Privacy Policy we have taken into account the standards and principles outlined in data collection and privacy frameworks around the world.

 

 

1. Sites covered

ID Shop (idshop.com) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Laminex, Inc., a USA organization, with legal entities, business processes, management structures, and technical systems across the United States of America. This statement applies to all Laminex owned websites and domains and the websites and domains of our wholly owned subsidiaries ("web site"), except in cases where a statement of terms and conditions is available on one of the above mentioned web sites that differs from this policy in which case the latter will apply.

 

2. Links to external websites and services

Laminex Websites may link to 3rd party websites and services. These links are not endorsements of these sites and this Privacy Policy does not extend to them. Because this Privacy Policy is not enforced on these third party websites we would encourage you to read the privacy policy of the website before using the service or site and providing any personal data.

3. Online shopping facilities

In some cases we will partner with a third party service provider to facilitate our online shopping services. The information collected during your shopping experience is in some cases owned by the third party operating the online shopping facility. In these cases their privacy policy will be in force and we encourage you to make yourself aware of it in advance of placing an order. These third parties will usually share information with us about your transaction and we will store this.

 

In order to most efficiently serve you, credit card transactions and order fulfilment are handled by established third party banking, process agents and distribution institutions. They receive the information they need to verify and authorize your credit card transactions and to ship your order. When collecting credit card information for online purchases, we offer secured-server transactions that encrypt your information in transit to thwart someone from intercepting it and misusing it.

4. Collection of data and personal information

To ensure that we provide you with the best possible experience we will store, use and share data about you in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the relevant registrations with data protection authorities

 

For example, when you request information, subscribe to our eMails, ask for support materials, register yourself or your Laminex products, enter competitions, participate in surveys, or apply for a job at Laminex, we will ask you to provide personal information to complete these transactions.

 

The sort of information that you provide in each case will vary and could include personal details such as your name, age and address. In some cases you will also provide profiling information such as your preferences or product choices. In some cases we will ask you for a username and password that should only be known to you.

In addition to the information that you provide to us we may also collect data about you during your visit to our website or while you engage with one of our marketing campaigns. We collect this data using automated tools that are detailed below. These tools collect data about your behaviour and your computer system, including, for instance, your Internet address(“IP Address”), the web pages you have looked at, and the things you have done while on our websites.

 

We may also use these tools on our eMail marketing campaigns to allow us to understand what links you click on and what content is of interest to you.

Laminex may also collect data from commercial sources to enrich and verify the data that you have provided or that we have collected about you. This data will help us to ensure we have accurate records and will provide us with the ability to keep your information up to date. In some cases, we may use this commercial data to determine additional information about you. For example, we may use your IP Address to calculate your approximate geographic location.

 

a. Cookies

A “cookie” is a small data file transmitted from a website to your computer’s hard drive. Laminex will use cookies on our Laminex Websites to provide you with services and features. For example, we will use cookies to help you login to your account and provide a personalized experience. We will also use cookies to connect your activity together across multiple visits. In some cases, we will also use cookies to monitor your interaction with our advertising campaigns; these cookies will be delivered by a third-party website but will provide us with information when you visit our Laminex Website.

 

Cookies are usually defined in one of two ways and Laminex Websites use both of them: 

       i.          Session cookies which do not stay on your computer after you close your browser.

      ii.          Persistent cookies which remain on your computer until you delete them or they expire.

 

Most browsers automatically accept cookies by default, but you can usually refuse cookies or selectively accept cookies by adjusting the preferences in your browser.

 

The following browsers have online guides to cookies at the following links:

Microsoft Internet Explorer: http://www.microsoft.com/info/cookies.htm

Mozilla Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cookies-information-websites-store-on-your-computer

 

Please be aware that a number of features on our Laminex Website require cookies to operate correctly – turning off cookies will affect your experience on our website.

b. Web Beacons

A web beacon is an electronic image. Web beacons can track certain things from your computer and can report activity back to a web server allowing us to understand some of your behavior.

 

If you choose to receive emails from Laminex, we will use web beacons to track your reaction to our emails. We will also use them to track whether you click on the links within our emails and at what time and date you do so. Some of our marketing partners will use web beacons to track your interaction with online advertising banners.

 

c. Embedded Web links

Links provided in our emails and in some cases on 3rd party websites may include tracking embedded in the link. The tracking is accomplished through a redirection system. The redirection system allows Laminex to understand how the link is being used.

 

Some of these links will enable Laminex to identify that you have personally clicked on the link and this may be attached to the personal data that we hold about you. This data is used to improve our service to you and to help us understand the performance of our marketing campaigns.

d. Third-party websites and services

Laminex works with a number of service providers of marketing communications technology. These service providers may use various data collection methods to improve the performance of the marketing campaigns we are contracting them to provide. The data collected can be gathered on our websites and also on the websites where our marketing communications are appearing. For example, we may collect data where our banner adverts are displayed on third-party websites.

5. Social Media

We provide features on our websites that allow you to share and connect through social networks. These features are connecting with the services provided by the social networks and therefore the privacy controls in place are those of the social networks. Before engaging with any of these tools, we would encourage you to be aware of the privacy settings of your social profiles and also to read the privacy policies of the networks in question. These social features will often store information about you and the things that you share or comment upon.

 

If you share any of your personal information through a public forum or social network-enabled feature on our Laminex Websites, this information could be read by anyone. Laminex is therefore not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums.

 

6. How we use your information

All of the information that we gather and that you provide is aimed at improving our service to you and your experience when engaging with our brands. For example, we may use your information to:

  • ·        prevent malicious activity and provide you with a secure experience
  • ·        provide service and support for products that you own
  • ·        provide marketing communications that are effective and optimized for you
  • ·        keep you up to date with the latest benefits available from us
  • ·        avoid sending you something that will not be of interest
  • ·        define what content you might be interested in
  • ·        personalize our websites to you
  • ·        measure performance of marketing programs
  • ·        invite you to participate in competitions
  • ·        to learn about your behavior and try to improve what we do for your benefit
  • ·        contact you about services and offers that are relevant to you

Where we display testimonials, reviews or recommendations on our Laminex Website, they have been placed there with the express consent of the owner of the statement.

7. How we share your information

Laminex will never sell or lease your information to any third-party. We may disclose your personal information to our partners in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We will share your information in the following ways:

Laminex works with a number of suppliers internationally that help us to process your requests, deliver customer service and support, send our email marketing communications and provide the experience that you have come to expect from our brands. We will share your information with these suppliers in order to fulfill the service that they provide to us. They are under contract to keep your data secure and not to use it for any reason other than to fulfill the service we have requested from them.

On occasion, we may provide you with the ability to communicate with selected third-parties. Where this is the case, we will provide you with the facility to instruct us to share your data with the selected third-party. We will only share your data in this way if you have  allowed us to do so.

 

Laminex requires that all users of our Laminex Websites and marketing campaigns allow us to share information with our subsidiaries and legal entities, and in some cases our partners. As a global organization we have partners and processes in multiple countries around the globe and therefore need to be able to process your information globally to fulfill your requests for service and deliver the experience that you have asked for. This sharing is required as a condition of you providing us with information.

 

Except as described in this policy, we will only share your data with third-parties under one of the following circumstances:

       i.          respond to duly authorized information requests of police and governmental authorities;

      ii.          comply with any law, regulation, subpoena, or court order;

     iii.          investigate and help prevent security threats, fraud or other malicious activity;

    iv.          enforce/protect the rights and properties of Laminex or its subsidiaries; or

      v.          protect the rights or personal safety of Laminex employees 

 

There are circumstances where Laminex may decide to buy, sell or reorganize business units. Under these circumstances, it may be necessary to share or receive personal information with prospective or actual partners. In these cases, Laminex will seek to ensure that all data remains protected by a policy of this nature.

 

8. Children's privacy

Laminex does not actively seek data from children. We do not expect children to be engaging with our Laminex Websites or services. We encourage parents and guardians to provide adequate protection measures to prevent children from providing information unwillingly on the internet. If we are aware of any data that we have collected from children, we will endeavor to delete it.

 

9. Your choices and selecting your privacy preferences

Laminex wants to provide you with relevant information that you have requested. 

 

You can make choices about the subscription based services we provide at the point of data collection or at any time after you have received a communication from us or while you are subscribed to a service. This assumes that any transactional or service oriented messages are excluded from your preference as they are not intended to be for the purposes of marketing communications and rather to fulfill a service you have requested.

 

The communication that you receive from Laminex will be in accordance with your preferences and this Privacy Policy. Some of the communications you receive could include automatic data collection tools.

 

a. Subscription email communications

Laminex provides the ability for you to subscribe to receive email newsletters that are expressly requested by you or which you consented to receive. 

After you request to receive these emails, you may opt-out of receiving them by selecting the “Change preferences” or "unsubscribe" link, or follow the opt-out instructions included in each email communication.

 

Please note that by opting out you may affect other services which you have requested we provide to you where email communication is a requirement of the service provided.

 

10. Access to and accuracy of your information

Laminex strives to maintain the accuracy of  the information we retain about you. We have processes in place to ensure that we keep all of our information in accordance with relevant frameworks and take steps to monitor accuracy. We employ technologies that will try to maintain data accuracy on input and processing to help us achieve this aim.

 

Where we enable you access to your private data, we will always ask you for a username and password to help protect your privacy and security. We recommend that you keep your password safe and do not disclose it to any third party.

 

To view and change the personal information that you directly provided to Laminex, you can return to the web page where you originally submitted your data and follow the instructions on that web page or contact us directly for assistance.

11. Keeping your personal information secure

Laminex will use appropriate physical, technical and administrative procedures to safeguard the information that we collect to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure.

When we collect or transmit information over the internet we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer protocol. All of our data is stored in secure facilities with limited access and stringent security procedures.

12. Changes to this statement

If we make any changes to this Privacy Policy, they will be posted on this page. You can get to this page from any of the Laminex Websites that this policy applies to by clicking on the privacy policy link (usually at the bottom of the web page).
