Types of information gathered 

There are two primary types of information provided by PPMA Ltd customers. The definitions and treatments of these types are as follows:

Financial Information
Payment information gathered during the registration process – including but not limited to credit card numbers, financial institutions, and expiry dates – is considered Financial. This information is not distributed under any circumstance.

Professional Information
Data that customers 'Opt In' and provide to PPMA Ltd through various methods of communications with PPMA Ltd is considered professional information that is stored and managed for PPMA Ltd's internal use. Professional data includes, but is not limited to; name, address, company name, company address, phone number, fax number, email address, as well as questions answered on survey or registration forms. 

Data captured during a customer’s visit to a PPMA Ltd website, as well as during a visit with another PPMA Ltd customer, is also considered professional information and may also be stored for PPMA Ltd’s internal use. Professional information may be, upon the consent of PPMA Ltd, shared with other organisations or PPMA Ltd customers for the purpose of facilitating business relationships in our customers’ best interests.

PPMA Ltd will accept, acknowledge and maintain any customer’s request to opt out of either future communication from PPMA Ltd or communication from a third party to whom PPMA Ltd provided the customer’s information.
