What data we collect and why we collect it

definition of data

The term “data” can refer to several different types of information on this website.

  • Project CAD Data:  We never share our clients confidential, project CAD data.  It is handled securely and by a limited number of trained staff.  We store all Project CAD data in a safe area with back-up redundancy. We abide by all confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements/requirements between us and our clients.
  • Project Specification Data: the project specifications (non-cad data) are used to process your orders from AIM Plastics.  It is seen by the appropriate staff during the normal business of processing an order.  It may include company name, company address, billing information, credit card information, order totals, and quality control data. AIM Plastics may share our project specific data with our business partners with the intent of filling the requirements of your order.  We retain project data only as long as it is useful or necessary.
  • Medical Data: we work in the medical field and some projects may include confidential medical information.  We never share confidential medical data and follow all federal and state guidelines pertaining to the handling and storage of that data.
  • Personal Data:  this is the demographic data needed for normal website functions.  It includes but is not limited to name, address, phone, email address, previous employment information, social media URLs, IP address, post comments, gravatar, and images.  See additional data types in the following sections.

Unless otherwise noted, the term “data” or “information” in our privacy policy refers to “personal demographic data”.  Project CAD data, Project Specific data and Medical data are outside of the scope of this privacy policy.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

While using this website, you may complete any or all forms. The form may require you to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the products/services on our site in which you have expressed interest.

At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself, project requirement information, cover letter information, previous employment information, etc. The type of information you provide is your sole determination and is not required.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Social Sharing and Site Links

This website contains links to other sites. This website also allows you to share content to social media platforms. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

We use Google Analytics to measure traffic and understand how users interact with our site. We may use other tools to measure the efficacy of our marketing campaigns.

Who we share your data with

In certain situations, AIM Plastics may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of Dropbox. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

What data breach procedures we have in place

  1. If we determine there was a breach of private information, AIM Plastics management will work with affected office or department to contain the breach. We will assess extent and impact of event.
  2. After containing the breach, we will determine whether specific legal protections relate to the breached information and identify the relevant reporting obligations.
  3. We will draft a standard notification letter to individuals affected by breach and send letters per applicable legal requirements.
  4. In addition to legally required notifications, we will determine whether other actions are required to remedy the effects of the breach (e.g. identify theft protection, notification to third parties, etc.)
  5. We will draft an internal Breach Report and may use the report to fulfill legal reporting obligations to appropriate federal agencies. Additionally, we shall maintain records for purposes of compliance with privacy-related laws.

What third parties we receive data from

We may receive data from various third parties during the course of our work. We retain third party data only as long as it is useful or necessary.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We work with automated marketing companies such as Mailchimp and Survey Monkey to send out electronic communications and carry out surveys on our behalf to customers who subscribe to receive them. Information held is on a secure server. You can review their privacy policies for information on how they manage user data.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

Certified ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016, we follow any additional privacy policy standards required of us by those certifications.

Security

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Visitors are responsible for keeping login name and password information confidential and are responsible for all actions taken with their login name and password. If a password has been compromised for any reason, the password should be changed immediately.
