Opt-Out Process

We believe our consumers should have the right to decline disclosure of personal information that is collected on our databases. The records for those individuals who request that their personal information not be used for future mailings or phone calls will be marked in our database so that their names will be excluded from any contact in the future.

Currently, we mark consumer records in two ways:

  1. Do not mail excludes the consumer's name from our direct mail campaigns.
  2. Do not call indicates that the consumer does not wish to receive any phone communication (i.e., phone research or telemarketing campaigns) from Avery Dennison.

Consumers can request removal of their name and consumer information by the following methods:

  • Writing Avery Dennison Consumer Service Center with the request:
    Avery Dennison Consumer Service Center
    PO Box 129

Avery Dennison's consumer information is collected when consumers:

  • Call Avery Dennison Consumer Service Center (CSC). When consumers call the CSC, we might ask for their names, address, phone number, and other consumer profile information that helps us better serve their needs in the future. Consumer information is collected only if the consumer has given us permission to do so. This information helps facilitate communication with our consumers by allowing us to quickly and efficiently identify the consumer.


  • Respond to various marketing campaigns (i.e., advertisements, business reply cards, offers, etc.). This consumer information collected is completely voluntary. In most cases, consumers are given a choice to have their names removed by checking the appropriate box on the questionnaire.


  • Visit the Avery® products Web site (www.avery.com). Consumers might be asked to respond to survey questionnaires or to register to receive future mailings and product updates. Consumers might also be asked to provide consumer information before downloading Avery brand software products.
