I. WHAT INFORMATION DOES OUR SITE GATHER?
Typically we collect two kinds of information related to you: (a) Personally Identifiable Information ("PII"); and (b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information ("Non-PII").
(a) Personally Identifiable Information: PII includes all types of information that personally identifies you. We collect your PII when you register with us or when you decide to participate in an interactive feature of our Sites such as a review, survey or promotion. You may: (a) provide your name, mail/shipping address, email address, credit card number and phone number when registering with our Sites or in connection with a contest entry; (b) provide certain demographic information about you (e.g., age, gender, shopping interests and preferences, etc.) when participating in a survey or poll; or (c) post a general comment and/or recommendation on our Sites.
(b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We accumulate certain non-PII from you when you go online at our Sites, including IP addresses and information relating to your PC\laptop such as browser, operating system, ISP, the third party website from which you were re-directed and the way you use our Sites such as the particular web pages you visit, and the duration of each of your visits.
II. HOW WE USE & SHARE THE INFORMATION COLLECTED
PII and Non-PII is used to provide, or improve, our Sites and Services to you and to carry out your requests, respond to your inquiries as soon as possible, serve you better and understand all your needs, or is used in other ways that are only associated with the circumstances in which you provided the information.
We may share PII and Non-PII to:
- (1) our third party service providers who perform functions on our behalf directly related to the operation of the Sites or Services e.g., providers who host and manage data, process credit card orders, deliver our merchandise, etc;
- (2) participating sponsors to a program or promotion you enter via our Sites or Services;
- (3)our parent company, subsidiaries or other affiliated companies (" affiliated companies") for operational, marketing and promotional purposes;
- (4) co-promotional partners and others with whom we have marketing or other relationships ;
- (5) participating merchants where you give your agreement at the time you submit PII to us when using the interactive features of our Sites such as surveys and reviews concerning our participating merchants; and
- (6) our other users where you choose to publicly post reviews, comments or other information relating to products or services, communicate with other users via public forums (e.g., forums, message boards, bulletin boards, etc.).
Furthermore, we use non-PII to help analyze site traffic, understand customer needs and trends, carry out targeted promotional activities (see "Preference Based Advertising" below). We may use your non-PII by itself or total it with information we have gained from others to produce research reports and other information and data about online shopping for participating merchants and other customers, as well as media and other interested parties.
V. SECURITY OF INFORMATION
We do our utmost to make sure your information is secured when being transmitted by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We use a secure server hosting location in the US, firewall protection, controlled access and encryption technology to protect your data. Please be advised that although while we do make everything possible to protect your PII, we do not give any guarantees or warrant the security of any information you share or transmit to us online and are not liable for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your PII. In the unfortunate event that your personally identifiable information is compromised, you will be notified by e-mail to the last e-mail address you have provided us as soon as possible under the circumstances (delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system, as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation.)
