Effective August 3, 2020
P+PB does not knowingly solicit or collect information from anyone under the age of 18, and every part of the Platform is directed at persons 18 years of age or older. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under the age of 18, or the legal age of contract majority, and have authorized your child to use your computer or mobile device, P+PB urges you to instruct your child never to give out his or her real name, address, phone number, email address or other personally identifying information while on the Platform. There are no computer applications on or within the Platform which allow for the determination of your age. If P+PB discovers that personal information of a child under 18 has been collected, P+PB will take reasonable steps to delete this information. All information volunteered to P+PB will be treated the same as information given by an adult. P+PB recommends that the Internet browsing behavior and usage of mobile applications by any child should be carefully supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
General Information Collected
To enhance the content contained on or in the Platform, P+PB may gather and store certain general information about your visit or use. “General Information” is information about you or your activities through which you cannot be identified. This information may include some or all of the following items:
- The Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of your Internet Service Provider (“ISP”) and/or your computer or device, which may consist of a static or dynamic IP address. The domain name may also be collected.
- The date, time, length of stay and specific P+PB web pages, images, videos, documents or forms accessed by you on the Platform, including videos or content you watch or interact with.

P+PB collects this General Information and may use it to generate generic or aggregate statistics about visitors to and users of the Platform. In situations where it is possible to do so, General Information may be linked to Personal Information.
Personal Information Collected
“Personal Information” is information through which you can be identified. Providing your Personal Information to P+PB is your choice. P+PB maintains one or more databases to store your Personal Information and may keep such information indefinitely.
P+PB generally will not ask or collect your Personal Information. In very limited circumstances set forth below, P+PB will ask for your Personal Information, which may include your full name, company name, phone number, title and email address. P+PB collects this information when you fill out the Contact Us form, email us, fill out a prize promotion entry, post comments, or when you register to access restricted parts of the Platform. P+PB also may collect other information, your first name (no last name), city and/or state, and country, which P+PB considers Personal Information only if combined with any of the items of Personal Information listed in the first sentence of this Section. P+PB explains below how P+PB will use this information.
The Platform may include social media features, including links to share, post or link P+PB’s content through your accounts with third party social media services. If you choose to interact with social media features on or from the Platform, or if you are logged in to your social media accounts while using the Platform, social media services may collect information about your use of the Platform. Information collected by third party social media services is governed by the privacy policies of those third parties, not P+PB.
P+PB may collect your social media username or ID, social media plug-in information, and URL clickstream to, through and from the Platform (including date and time). Information collected by social media sites may include names, titles or descriptions of videos or content viewed through your use of the Platform. Your use of the Platform and any third-party social media services constitutes your agreement and consent to the collection and use of information about the videos and content you view through the Platform.
Third Party Advertising
At this time, P+PB does not collect information about your activity on the Platform to be shared with third parties for advertising purposes. P+PB also does not allow third parties to collect information about your activity on the Platform to be used for third party advertising purposes. Please note, social media services may have their own third-party advertising which is generated from or uses your Personal Information. If you are logged into your social media account while accessing or using the Platform, such social media services may serve you third-party advertisements. Such third-party advertisements are governed by the policies of the applicable social media service, not P+PB.
Third Party Analytics
Your information is collected from the Platform, through email and/or through online applications or forms you complete, registration, requests for P+PB or Platform information, entering sweepstakes or prize promotions, taking surveys, reporting problems, information you volunteer to P+PB, and through any of your other activities with P+PB. The Personal Information that P+PB collects depends on the nature of your activities.
For example, P+PB collects your information via the registration and Contact Us sections of the Platform. P+PB also collects information regarding your device, including GPS location when you use the Platform and associated services from your mobile device if your device has location services enabled.
Personal Information you volunteer is used by P+PB for internal verification, to complete requested transactions, to ensure appropriate legal use of P+PB’s goods and/or services, to provide you notification about updates to the Platform, goods and services, and to help provide you with technical support for the Platform.
Specifically, P+PB uses the information it collects about you to:
- Solicit your feedback about the Platform;
- Communicate with you regarding messages you send us from within the Contact Us form;
- Deliver goods or services you request;
- Enable P+PB to provide, improve and maintain the Platform, including administration and internal operations such as data usage and analysis, research, testing, and troubleshooting;
- Keep the Platform safe and secure;
- Administer promotional programs; and
- Comply with administrative, regulatory and legal requirements.
To the greatest extent possible, P+PB shall process aggregate data (which is data that neither identifies you nor can be linked to you, such as statistic data), pseudonymized or anonymized data, rather than Personal Information, when the purposes of such processing can be achieved in the same way.
P+PB shares information about you, including your Personal Information, with third parties, to:
- P+PB’s service providers, which are business partners, suppliers and subcontractors that assist P+PB in providing and maintaining the Platform. For example, P+PB may hire companies to help provide products or services, like an email company that may deliver our newsletters, a help desk partner that provides or assists with customer support, prizes which may be provided by a third-party fulfillment company, a data processor, or any other third party that is needed to assist in the completion of transactions or the provision of goods or services you request or provide;
- Service providers and business partners who supplement information P+PB collects with additional information about visitors or users of the Platform and who help P+PB better connect with P+PB’s intended audience;
- Analytics and search engine providers that aid P+PB in the improvement and optimization of the Platform;
- Any companies or government entities under common control with P+PB; and
- To any other third party with your consent to do so.
P+PB may also disclose your Personal Information:
- To comply with any applicable law or legal process, including in response to judicial, administrative, or governmental subpoenas, warrants or orders served on P+PB;
- In the event of a change of ownership, corporate sale, acquisition, merger, reorganization, sale of assets, or dissolution or similar event; or
- A petition for relief is filed under U.S. Bankruptcy laws for or against P+PB or if P+PB becomes subject to an order of appointment of a trustee or receiver.
P+PB may make message boards, blogs, reviews, allow comments and provide other community services available to you on the Platform. Please understand that any information that is disclosed by you in these areas becomes public information. When you disclose such information in a comment or on message board, blog, review or any other public forum, you do so at your own risk. P+PB has no control over its use and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your Personal Information or any other information about yourself. The information presented in these areas reflects the views of the individual users, providers or hosts and does not necessarily reflect the views of P+PB. P+PB reserves the right (but has no obligation) to monitor the use of message boards, blogs, reviews or other public forums on the Platform.
P+PB takes commercially reasonable measures to protect the security and confidentiality of your Personal Information, including measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, and disclosure. These security measures include, for example, internal reviews of P+PB’s data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where P+PB stores personal data.
When the use of the Platform involves the transmission of Personal Information, P+PB may use Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) technology to establish a secure connection between your computer or mobile device and P+PB and/or the Platform. P+PB may also allow the transmission of encrypted information from your computer or mobile device to P+PB and/or the Platform and back again.
P+PB reserves the right to monitor all network and other traffic to and in the Platform to identify and/or block unauthorized attempts or intrusions to upload or change information or cause damage to any of the Platform in any manner. Anyone using any of the Platform expressly consents to such monitoring.
Please be aware that no data transmission over the Internet or which is stored on a computer or mobile device connected to the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so while P+PB strives to protect your Personal Information, P+PB cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you voluntarily give to us.
You cannot access your Personal Information contained in P+PB’s database. P+PB will make a good faith efforts to correct such data at your request if it is inaccurate or delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. If you want to change or request deletion of the Personal Information that P+PB has for you (i.e., changing to a new email address), please contact us at email@example.com or by mail at:
Paper and Packaging Board
Attn: Privacy Request
8200 Greensboro Drive, #1175
McLean, Virginia 22102
Please note in order to protect the security of your information, you will be required to properly identify yourself before P+PB can process such a request.
Additionally, it is not always possible to completely delete, remove or modify information in P+PB’s databases, however, P+PB will use commercially reasonable efforts to do so should it be possible.
P+PB maintains your information for no longer than necessary for the purposes for which it was collected and is processed. Thus, the length of time that P+PB retains your information depends on the purposes for which it was collected and used and/or as is required to comply with applicable laws.
When you visit or use the Platform, P+PB may place a cookie in a file directory on your computer or mobile device. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer or mobile device to uniquely distinguish your visit to a website or use of an online service or mobile application. The information that cookies collect includes the date and time of your visit and your registration information. Cookies may offer you many conveniences for the Platform and allow P+PB to recognize certain information, such as your browser type, so P+PB knows if you can view certain plug-ins or extensions. They also allow P+PB to streamline your visit to the Platform based on your previous visits.
You may choose what cookies you accept by making a selection in the Cookie Declaration available here. You may also configure your browser or device to accept or deny cookies from the Platform. However, opting out, disabling or denying cookies from the Platform may render parts of the Platform inaccessible or may cause certain web pages or parts of the app not to properly load. There are also several services and websites which allow you to visit websites, including the Platform, anonymously. Again, you may not be able to access or use all of the content or services available on the Platform if you use these anonymizing services or websites. If you change computers or browsers or devices or use multiple computers or browsers or devices or delete P+PB’s cookies, you will need to repeat this process for each computer, each browser, and each device.
P+PB may use “Web Beacons,” sometimes referred to as “pixels,” “clear gifs,” or “web bugs,” which are another way (instead of cookies) of helping to personalize your experience on the Platform. Web Beacons are typically invisible to you and are generally embedded in very small clear graphics files. “Pixel Tags” are small strings of computer code that provide a method for delivering a graphic image on a web page or other medium. Pixel Tags allow P+PB or a third party who serves the Pixel Tag, to set, read, and modify some of P+PB’s cookies.
P+PB may use Web Beacons and Pixel Tags to monitor certain non-personally identifiable information about you, including the URL of the page from which the Web Beacon or Pixel Tag originated, the type of browser used, the IP address of your computer and the time you viewed the Web Beacon or Pixel Tag. While Web Beacons and Pixel Tags do not collect Personal Information, the information collected by them may be used in conjunction with cookies to identify aggregate information about users of the Platform.
P+PB does not currently have the capabilities to recognize the Do Not Track signals, settings or mechanisms, including from any Internet browsers. Therefore, any selection you make within your Internet browser will not be applied to the Platform. For more information regarding Do Not Track you can visit www.allaboutdnt.org.
The Platform may contain links to third-party websites or apps. P+PB has no control over the privacy practices or the content of such third-party websites. Neither P+PB, nor any of its officers, directors, partners, employees, agents, representatives, vendors or suppliers are responsible for the content, privacy policies, products, services, reliability, viewpoint or accuracy of information on any such websites or apps. P+PB does not control and is not responsible for the collection of personal information by third party websites or apps or any websites or apps not controlled by P+PB.
Under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), California residents have certain rights around the collection, use, and sharing of their personal information. As P+PB understands the term, P+PB is not a “business” as defined in the CCPA, and thus is not subject to the CCPA. The CCPA defines the “sale” of Personal Information as disclosing, sharing or making such information available to another company or third party “for monetary or other valuable consideration.” Under that definition, P+PB does not sell your Personal Information and further will not do so in the future without providing you with notice and an opportunity to opt-out of such sale. P+PB also does not offer financial incentives associated with P+PB’s collection, use, or disclosure of your Personal Information. You may opt-out of sharing your Personal Information as set forth in the Cookie Declaration available here.
Under California Civil Code 1798.83, P+PB currently does not share any Personal Information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code requires select businesses to disclose policies relating to the sharing of certain categories of your personal information with third parties. If you reside in California and have provided your personal information to P+PB, you may request information about P+PB’s disclosures of certain categories of personal information to third parties for direct marketing purposes. Such requests must be submitted to P+PB at one of the following addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org or
Paper and Packaging Board
Attn: California Privacy Rights
8200 Greensboro Drive, #1175
McLean, Virginia 22102
Within thirty (30) days of receiving such a request, P+PB will provide a list of the categories of Personal Information disclosed to third parties for third-party direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, along with the names and addresses of those third parties, if any. This request may be made no more than once per calendar year. P+PB reserves the right not to respond to requests submitted other than to the address specified in this Section, requests not labeled or sent properly, or requests that do not have complete information.
Users that are Nevada residents may, under Nevada law, opt-out by directing a business that operates a website or online service not to sell or license certain personal information that the business has collected or will collect about a Nevada resident. Please note, under Nevada law, P+PB does not sell your Personal Information to any third party for resale or license. For more information about how P+PB handles and shares your Personal Information or your rights under Nevada law, Nevada Users may contact P+PB at email@example.com. Please note, P+PB may take reasonable steps to verify your identity and the authenticity of your request.
You may choose to opt-out of receiving electronic communications from P+PB. To opt-out of non-transactional electronic communications from P+PB, please contact P+PB at firstname.lastname@example.org (subject line: "Opt-Out Email Communications") to request that you be unsubscribed from any of P+PB’s marketing emails. You must provide your name and email address(es) when making any such request. In addition, you may manage your receipt of marketing and non-transactional communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link located on the bottom of any such communication. P+PB will use commercially reasonable efforts to process such requests in a timely manner.
P+PB may also deliver notifications to your mobile device (i.e., push notifications). You can disable these notifications by deleting the applicable app or by changing the settings on your mobile device.
You should be aware that you cannot opt-out of receiving transaction related communications, including regarding provision of services and customer support.
