Not all information is required to be provided (required items will be clearly noted), but if you should choose to withhold any requested information, you may not be eligible to participate in or receive full benefit from all services on the New Pig Website.

How Personal Data Is Used And With Whom It Is Shared

We use your Personal Data to enhance the New Pig Website, to personalize your experience, or other uses we may determine from time to time. We use your information from the registration form to send you information about our company and promotional material from some of our partners. New Pig Ltd periodically sends out printed Pigalog® catalogues and other direct-mail pieces to the mailing list. From time to time, New Pig Ltd also contacts customers or potential customers by phone, mail, fax or email for the purpose of soliciting feedback, distributing company newsletters or press releases, or announcing new products or services. Your information is also used to contact you when necessary and is shared with other companies who may want to contact you. New Pig Ltd maintains a mailing list of individuals that have requested a catalog, made a purchase from New Pig Ltd, registered to use the New Pig Website or otherwise voluntarily communicated their telephone, fax number, email or physical address to New Pig Ltd. New Pig Ltd occasionally releases its mailing list to other companies who may use this information to contact you for the purpose of announcing their products and services.

Financial information that is collected from you may be used to check your qualifications for registration and bill you for products and services.

Any such third parties will be under an obligation to us to maintain the confidentiality of your personal data. We may also collect and report to third parties (such as content and service providers and advertisers) aggregated information from the New Pig Website.

Transfers of Data Overseas

As part of our data management, some or all of your personal data may be transferred to a country outside the European Economic Area. At present, we export data only to the USA. The USA has different data protection and privacy laws from the UK, and US laws may apply to exported data.
