How We Collect and Use Your Information

Graphic Products Programs and Services

Graphic Products customers and visitors who interface with our web applications, software products, customer service staff and other support services ("Services”) often provide various types of information. Such information may be generic but may also include personally identifiable information (e.g., name, address, e-mail address, company information, and payment information). Graphic Products uses this information to facilitate our superior customer service, product offerings, and product support.

We use this information to provide you with customer support, and to communicate regularly with you about your purchases and inquiries. While providing you with customer support (including through the live chat feature on our website) we may also gather additional information from you. From time to time we will offer you the opportunity to receive information about Graphic Products services or those offered by our affiliates. From time to time Graphic Products will co-sponsor products, services, and related advertisements with third-party affiliates. Information gathered in this context may be shared with these third-party affiliates consistent with the purposes described above.

We use information submitted through our website or collected through email or hard copy surveys to analyze the characteristics of our customers and improve our services. We will occasionally provide anonymized, aggregated statistics about our Customers in reports made available to them, to third parties, or to the general public.
