What Personal Information About Customers Does PPMAA Gather?
Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of all of our features. We use the information you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future site modifications for you, and communicating with you.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses www.ppmaa.com.

Does PPMAA Share the Information It Receives?
Confidentiality is important to PPMAA. Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below.
People to whom you send a hint or a wish list will receive your name and email address as you entered it on the site.
Suppliers fulfilling orders or repairs, companies processing credit card payments and applications, and providing customer service. They have access to information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Protection of PPMAA and Others:
With Your Consent:
Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
Which Information Can I Access?
PPMAA gives you access to information about your account and your interactions with PPMAA for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.
What Choices Do I Have?
- As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make use of other various features of PPMAA. We can always service your requests over the phone at 888.811.1529, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or in person.
- If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please contact us at email@example.com. (If you do not want to receive Conditions of Use and other legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Notice, those notices will still govern your use of PPMAA, and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.)
- The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.
Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions
If you choose to visit PPMAA, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Conditions of Use, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the state of Michigan. If you have any concern about privacy at PPMAA, please send us a thorough description to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will try to resolve it.
Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice and the Conditions of Use may change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
Information You Give Us
You provide most such information when you search, browse or communicate with customer service. For example, you provide information when you communicate with us by phone, e-mail, or otherwise. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, address, phone numbers, etc.
Examples of the information we collect and analyze include the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL) click stream to, through, and from our Web site, including date and time; cookie number; postings you viewed or searched for.
Information from Other Sources
We might collect search result information from some searches conducted through the Web search features; and credit history information from credit bureaus, which we use to help prevent and detect fraud and to offer certain credit or financial services to some customers.
Information You Can Access
Examples of information you may access easily now and in the future at PPMAA include up-to-date information regarding order processing; personally identifiable information (including name, e-mail, password); e-mail notification settings (including "received" and "value ready" alerts, payment notifications, and newsletters).
