Collection and use of personal information
Personal data definition
The terms “personal data” and “personal information” used in this notice describe information that can be used to identify or reasonably link to an individual, such as full name, mailing address, email address, business contact information, and IP address, or other identifying computer/browser information. Data that has been anonymized, and therefore can no longer be used to identify an individual, is not considered personal data by Landmark.
What data do we collect, and why?
Landmark Global collects various types of personal information from users within and outside the United States, including the EU, as required for our shipping operations, and in other cases, to improve your experience using our sites and services. This may include automatic/indirect data (e.g., consumer address for shipment delivery) and given/direct data (e.g., email for newsletter sign-up).
Landmark does not sell or lease your personal data to third-parties for any reason. Landmark will not share or trade your personal data for promotional purposes, unless specifically directed or approved by the data owner.
Below we outline how we collect and use different categories of data and the relevant user groups, including consumers, clients, suppliers and other business partners.
