We use the data for recruitment, customer service and marketing communications.
We process all personal data in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council (the General Data Protection Regulation) and applicable national legislation.
The expression, “personal details”, used herein refers to any type of data related to you as a user of our website, or a user of social media platforms utilised by Amerplast, regardless of whether you provide the data yourself or whether it is collected from you or obtained in any other way.
As the provider of the website, Amerplast is the controller responsible for all of the personal data about you that we store, collect, process and obtain in connection with your use of the website or in other ways.
Amerplast utilises personal data collected through and handled in social media platforms for marketing purposes.

We only collect, process and use your personal details for the following purposes:
We will request your consent as required by law before collecting, processing and using your personal details for the purposes stated above. If we want to use your personal details for a new or different purpose, we will inform you, and we will only use your details for such purposes when the law requires or permits such usage or when you have consented to such usage. Only a limited number of Amerplast’s employees have access to your personal details for the purposes stated above. These people are restricted by their user groups (e.g., HR, marketing, sales, support functions, IT services).
The personal details we collect, process and use in relation to the use of the website include the details that we actively collect when you use the website, as well as information that you voluntarily provide to us in various contexts (such as when you complete online forms). For this reason, we cannot provide an exhaustive list of all of the possible personal information that we collect, process and use. Generally, such personal details include the following:
“Cookies” are small amounts of data that the website transfers to your computer’s hard drive in the form of very small text files. Cookies are used to store information. “Cookies” can facilitate the use of the website by saving your preferences related to using the website. “Cookies” do not identify users, although they identify the user’s computer. Pixel tags (online trackers, web bugs and transparent GIF files) may also be used by us and by third parties on our website and in our emails. Pixel tags are indiscernible single-pixel graphical images on websites or in emails.
The following details are collected by us and by third parties using cookies, pixel tags and other equivalent technologies: your actions related to our website, newsletters and adverts; confirmation that you have opened an email received from us, as well as the time of opening and details about the links in the message that you may have clicked; the websites that you visited after leaving our website.
We may collect your personal details directly via our social media pages, which include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and others. The websites that host our social media pages may also collect personal details. Our privacy statement does not apply to the data protection and information security practices of the social media sites used by Amerplast.
We use advertising agencies working as third parties to offer online advertising targeted to you on other websites. These third-party advertising agencies use technology such as cookies and pixel tags to obtain information about how you use our website and other websites.

We may share your personal data with third parties and with companies belonging to the same company group with Amerplast for the purposes stated above. We do not sell, exchange, lease, disclose or otherwise share your personal details in any other way than described herein or expressly agreed with you (for example, if you consent to other forms of data transfer when you begin using the service). We may collect information that is related to customers’ use of the website and that helps us to develop our website. For example, we may study the collected data to determine which parts of our website are used by customers the most. Amerplast may offer compiled statistical information about customers, sales, website traffic and other information related to the website to third parties, but this statistical information does not enable individuals to be identified. Your personal details, such as your name and email address, will not be used in these studies.
We carefully comply with applicable legislation when we share personal details.
The potential recipients of your personal details are:
We do not generally transfer website and social media related personal data outside the EU or the EEA. If we transfer data outside the EU or the EEA, we take care to ensure an adequate standard of personal data protection by means such as agreeing on matters related to the confidentiality and processing of personal data in the manner required by legislation.
The data protection laws in force in other countries will not necessarily protect your personal data as effectively as the corresponding laws in the EU or the EEA. For example, if you use our website outside the aforementioned areas, the data recipient may not necessarily be a secure country in accordance with the European Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC), the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU 2016/679) or the Swiss Federation’s data protection law.
Amerplast understands the importance of information security and it aims to make the website, disclosures of personal details via recruitment adverts and submitting contact requests on forms as secure as possible. We take reasonable protective and precautionary measures to protect your personal data, including technical and organisational measures to prevent unauthorised use, misuse, modification, unauthorised or random destruction of data and accidental deletion online and off the network.
We hope that you will understand that while we strive to protect your personal data from potential risks and hazards, absolute security cannot be guaranteed when operating online. For this reason, we request that you contribute to promoting information security by refraining from disclosing any particularly sensitive or unnecessary details on our website.
We will not retain your personal data for longer than required or permitted by the legal purpose of use for which the data was collected, the operating methods applying to data retention or applicable legislation.
You can make several choices in relation to the collection, processing, use and purpose of use of your data. These include the following:

We ask that you familiarise yourself with the privacy statements on these websites before you disclose any personal details.
Our business is constantly changing, which is why our website’s privacy statement must be revised from time to time. We will publish the new version of the privacy statement on our website.
