Privacy Policy

This privacy policy sets out how Packaging Europe Ltd uses and protects any information that you give Packaging Europe Ltd when you use and/or any other group website.

Packaging Europe Ltd is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.

Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Information Collection

Packaging Europe Ltd, which is part of the Rapid News Communications Group, is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. Packaging Europe Ltd will ask for limited personal information when users register to receive a service from a Packaging Europe Ltd website, such as a printed publication, newsletter or take part in a competition or survey, or book a place at an event. Packaging Europe Ltd will also collect personal information from users when they register for one of its publications or when users communicate over the telephone or via written correspondence. This can include information such as name, job title, postal address, telephone or mobile number, fax number, email address and demographics. The information collected will vary depending on the website, but only by supplying this data, is Packaging Europe Ltd able to provide users with the services requested.

Information Use

We use acquired information to better understand your needs and provide you with a tailored service, and in particular for subscription and circulation purposes. We may also use the information to improve our products and services. We may periodically send promotional emails and/or postal mailings about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the contact details that you have provided. From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for marketre search purposes or to renew subscriptions. We may contact you by email, phone, fax or mail. We may use the information to customise the website according to your interests.

The company occasionally sells the option for relevant third party organisations to market their products and services to you. However, we only do this if you have indicated that you are happy for us to do so, and we only do it within the industrial sector. The data never leaves the Company’s control and the third party never sees or handles your data. We receive the communication content from the third party and then send it to you, if you have opted in, on their behalf.

We will not disclose any information to any company outside of these parameters, unless we are required to do so by law.

If you do not wish to receive certain types of communication, just let us know. When you register for any of our publications or newsletters, you will be given the opportunity to opt out from all third party communications. Any marketing communications you do subsequently receive from us will always include a clear, simple method to ‘opt-out’ of future communications.
