We may use the voluntarily provided contact information to notify website users of updates, products, services, or upcoming events. Website users who do not wish to receive such notifications via e-mail can choose to opt out of receiving such information. It is our policy that e-mail messages will contain an “unsubscribe” feature, along with instructions on how to execute the unsubscribe function. Registered website users can opt out of receiving e-mail messages by updating their communications preferences within the secured portion of the Panolam Industries website.
We recognize that when website users choose to provide personal information, they trust that we will protect their privacy and will provide them with choices about how that information is to be shared.

Internal security procedures
Information that you share on the website is kept strictly confidential and fully secure. Your encrypted (encoded) information is protected using “Secure Socket Layers (SSL)” as it passes between your browser and this website. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Only authorized persons are permitted to access your personal information. All authorized persons must abide by security, privacy, and confidentiality agreements.
If you send questions or comments to an e-mail address listed within this website or via a contact form located within this website, we will share your correspondence with a Panolam Industries associate most capable of addressing your questions and concerns. We will retain your communications until we have done our very best to provide you with a complete and satisfactory response. Ultimately, we will either discard your communication or, in some cases, archive it. We will not keep your e-mail address for secondary purposes. All information and correspondence you share with us will be handled in the strictest confidence.
We may agree that e-mail has become a standard communication tool used by many different parties. Unfortunately by design standard Internet e-mail is not secure. For that reason, please do not use unsecured e-mail to communicate information to us that you may consider to be confidential.
