Privacy Policy

Hoffmann Machine Company’s privacy policy exceeds the standards required by congressional legislation. One requirement of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Financial Modernization Act of 1999, or GLB, requires financial institutions to provide customers with the ability to "opt-out" of information sharing. While we are not a bank or financial institution, we fully agree with this legislation and have decided to put even more safeguards for your privacy in place.

Hoffmann Machine Company Inc. has adopted an "opt-in" privacy policy, which means that we will not share your data unless you explicitly request that we do so.

Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy is simple and straightforward. We respect your privacy, and we are committed to protecting it.

We protect the confidentiality and security of your personal and financial information by placing you, our customer, in control of the process by allowing you to consent to information sharing before it occurs as described in this Privacy Policy.

Hoffmann Machine Company Inc. is committed to these four Privacy Principles. By using our web site or by placing an order with us, you consent to the collection and use of information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

  • to companies that assist us in marketing our products and services;
  • as otherwise allowable by law, such as sharing with data processors, credit bureaus, printers, shipping houses, etc.
  • to better serve you by forwarding your information to a local Hoffmann distributor or sales representative

We do not share your personal information with others for marketing purposes, except at your request. However, other companies may obtain your name and address from other sources and send you information on their products and services.
