Avery Dennison customer information sources
Avery Dennison's customer information is collected when customers:
- Call Avery Dennison Customer Service Center (“CSC”). When customers call the CSC, we might ask for their names, address, phone number, and other customer profile information that helps us better serve their needs in the future. This information helps facilitate communication with our customers by allowing us to quickly and efficiently identify the customer.
- Respond to various marketing campaigns (i.e. advertisements, business reply cards, offers, bulletins, etc.). This customer information collected is completely voluntary. In most cases, customers are given a choice to have their names removed by checking the appropriate box on the questionnaire.
We would only use online email communication with customers who have given us permission to do so. When used, we will provide our customers with a mechanism through which they can request that Avery Dennison omits their email addresses from lists or databases. We will always provide our customers with an email address, postal address, and telephone number at which we can be contacted.
What if you do not wish to receive any information?
If you would rather not receive any information about the activities, products and services of Avery Dennison, you can indicate this by sending a letter to this effect and enclosing a copy of your proof of identity to Avery Dennison to the e-mail address below.
Providing electronic services is important to Avery Dennison, particularly because these e-services offer customers, prospective customers and web site visitors quick and convenient access to information. When you subscribe to receiving communications by e-mail, when such a service is offered, you are giving Avery Dennison permission to use your e-mail address for that specific purpose.
