What Information We Collect
Whenever you visit our website we may collect two types of information:
(a) Personal information you actively opt to disclose.
(b) Passive information about you that is collected automatically by our servers or obtained from 3rd parties in a way not visible to you.
By selecting to participate in our Program, you need to become a member by disclosing the following information, such as: your name, email address, phone number, address and birth date. During the process of registering on our website, taking part in various offers, completing surveys, or sending us emails or correspondence, we collect additional information which you may disclose, including for example mobile telephone number, fax number, payment information (e.g., credit card number and billing address), social security number, credit information, health information and personal preferences regarding your lifestyle, products or services.
We collect some information in regards to you simply by virtue of you connecting to our website. Our servers automatically identify your personal computer by its internet protocol (“IP”) address, a unique string of numbers that is allotted to your computer by your internet service provider. In addition, to participate in our program you need to allow cookies to be active on your system. Cookies are a feature of web browser software (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) which allows web servers to identify which computer is used to access a website. Cookies simplify subsequent interactions on our site and streamline your transactions on related web pages.
Information collected through cookies might include the date and time of your visits, the site pages you viewed, the time spent at each page, and the websites you visited just before and after our website.
You could disable the cookie function by using the instructions in the “help” section of your browser. However, doing so will properly make it impossible for our system to recognize you whenever you visit our websites, and thus will make your participation in our program more difficult or impossible.
Additionally, to the information you provide or which is collected automatically from our system, we may obtain information about you from our marketing partners or other 3rd parties, and we combine that information with the information you actively provide or which is automatically collected by our servers.
The term “Information” is found in this policy to relate to both types of information described above, also any Information that you provide to us directly by phone (including any phone number displayed via caller ID), U.S. mail, text or SMS message or through any other written or oral communication with us.
How We Use And Share The Information Collected
We make use of your Information to administer our business activities, provide customer services such as technical support, distribute information about changes to our site, and send you, and enable others to send you, information about products and services that may be of interest to you and to contact you or use your Information for any other purpose.
We send communications to you ourselves, and your Information is shared with other organizations that may contact you for any purpose by email, U.S. mail, phone, text message or any other means of communication.
OPT-IN NOTICE: By Participating, You Expressly “Opt In” to receive Information And Grant Us Permission To Share Your Information By signing up for our Program you expressly opt in to receive future information about products and services from us, and from a variety of advertisers to whom we may provide your Information.
We are going to share your personal information with 3rd parties, including our advertisers, for any reason we choose, including without limitation for the following purposes:
(1) to operate our Program (including the transfer of the information to advertisers or to 3rd parties who maintain on our behalf a list of persons having registered with our Program).
(2) to permit advertisers or other 3rd parties to use your Information for any purpose such as contacting you by email, U.S. mail, phone, text message or any other means of communication for any purpose.
(3) to confirm you have completed all of the necessary steps to receive your gift.
(4) as we are required to do by law, including to notify the IRS that you received your gift. As a result, we will transfer your Information to 3rd parties whose privacy policies and practices are beyond our control.
Additionally, in the event we consider a transaction involving the purchase or sale of our assets or stock, other companies may review our records, including your Information, to make business decisions about the transaction. Likewise, your Information may be transferred to 3rd parties in the event of the sale or acquisition of our company or any of its assets. The parties who perform services for us (credit card processors, merchant banks, our internet service provider, etc.) also may have access to your information in performing their services.
Special Note About Information You Provide Directly To Our Advertisers.
You are able to access certain advertiser’s sites through our website. When you opt to receive information or sign up for an offer from an advertiser, you may be doing so through 3rd party sites and with other companies over which we have no control.
You should read those sites’ privacy policies to make sure you agree to them before using such sites. If you wish to opt out of those advertisers’ mailings, you must do so directly with such advertisers or as otherwise provided on or through their websites.
Security Of Your Information
We use reasonable technical efforts to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, or accidental loss or destruction of Information. However, nearly all Internet transmissions pass through many servers not controlled by us, and therefore we cannot guarantee that any information you provide us or we collect will not be intercepted or altered in that process. Also, as noted above, your Information is shared with 3rd parties whose privacy policies and practices are beyond our control.
How You Can Choose To “Opt Out” Of Receiving Further Information About Products Or Services
If whenever you do not wish to receive further information about products or services from us and wish us to cease providing your Information to 3rd parties, you may choose to “opt-out” through the Unsubscribe/”Opt-Out” page of our site or by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link in our newsletter emails.
We will promptly update our records upon receiving your clear instructions to opt-out, but it may take up to ten (10) business days from our receipt of your request for the change to be fully effective.
Should you later give us a clear statement that you want to receive emails from us or our advertisers after such date, then that opt-in statement will supersede any earlier opt-out request. If we have already provided your email address or other information to an advertiser or other 3rd party before we receive your opt-out request, we cannot prevent them from sending or continuing to send you information or emails and you will need to contact such 3rd party directly.
How To Correct, Delete Or Access Your Information
In the event you wish to access, delete or correct the information you have given to us through this website, please contact us through the Contact Us section of our website or through written request.
