At PPE Universe, we are committed to protecting the personal information that you share with us. PPE Universe is a UK registered company. We suggest that you read through our terms and conditions to understand how we operate as a company.
PPE Universe opts to collect only the bare minimum of information about you. The information that we collect is to improve the functioning of our site and to combat fraudulent parties abusing this site. As a rule, you can browse through our website without the need to give us any information about yourself or the company that you represent. When we do need your personal information to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this policy describes how we collect and use such personal or corporate information.
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests, other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
When you browse our website, you can do so anonymously. We don’t automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information. Like many other commercial websites, the PPE Universe website may use “cookies” to collect information about how you use our site. Please go to “Cookies and Tracking Information” below for additional information.
PPE Universe collects personal information when you register for one of our services, when you explicitly "opt-in" or ask to be part of our communications, or when you submit your personal information to PPE Universe for any other reason. From time to time, PPE Universe receives personal information from business partners and vendors. We only use such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this Policy and applicable laws as set out within the European Union.
PPE Universe will not transfer your personal or corporate information to third parties without your prior consent. The exemption to this is described under the heading “Information Sharing and Disclosure” which is listed below.
Should you opt to provide us with your personal information, we may only transfer that information, within PPE Universe, or to PPE Universe third-party service providers with your permission. Upon receiving your permission, we may transfer your information across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.
PPE Universe will always give you the opportunity to “opt-out” of receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option available.
In some cases, when applicable, we will provide you with the opportunity to “opt-in.” This means we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.
Should you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser, although you may not be able to utilize the PPE Universe website. However, you may be required to accept cookies in order to complete certain actions on our website. You do not need to have cookies turned on, in order to navigate through many parts of our website, except access to certain of PPE Universe web pages may require a login and password.
How We Use Information Collected
PPE Universe uses information for several general purposes, all of which you will need to explicitly “opt-in”: to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to personalize your experience on our website, to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you’d like to hear about either from us or from our business partners and to better understand your needs and provide you with better services. We may also use your information to send you or to have our business partners send you, direct marketing information or contact you for market research.
