Privacy Policy

Your personal privacy is a principal concern to us at PuriTeam Our goal in outlining our policy on the collection and use of customer data is to ensure the highest level of confidentiality and security. When you provide your personal information to any PuriTeam site we will not give or sell your personal information to any outside company for its use in marketing or solicitation. We will maintain the confidentiality of your personal information and it will be used only to support your customer relationship with our business, assisting us in providing better and more targeted services to you. Additionally, internal practices are in place to help protect your privacy by limiting employee access to and use of customer data. When PuriTeam asks for customer information, it is done with the goal of improving the relationship between a PuriTeam representative and the customer. At PuriTeam, we allow our customers to maintain control over their personal data while attempting to provide a more interactive online experience. Our intention is to send e-mail only to customers who have chosen to receive such e-mails. At any time, you have the right to decline receiving future communications in any manner, including email, fax, telephone and postal mail.

Credit Card Information

PuriTeam also collects credit card information from you to process purchases from the site. Authorize.net handles our credit card transactions in a secure, encrypted environment.

Whenever you transmit credit card information and other personal information through our site, the numbers and letters are scrambled using encryption technology, making it virtually impossible for the information to be stolen or intercepted. To protect your security, we do not allow you to store your credit card number from session to session.

Information Collection

When you browse any PuriTeam Web site, you do so anonymously. Personal information -- including your e-mail address -- is not collected. Some of our Web sites, however, may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information, including your E-mail address for purposes such as correspondence, site registration, or making a purchase. We may ask for your name, e-mail address, telephone number, mailing address and birth date. Other optional information may be asked (customer preference information, social security numbers, lifestyle interests, and other demographic information) that is needed to register or subscribe you to services or offers that you may have requested.

Like many other commercial Web sites, PuriTeam may use a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how our site is used. Please read About Cookies for more information.

We collect only information that is needed, and we tell the customer how we use it. We limit the collection of information about our customers to what we need to know to manage their membership, to provide customer service, to offer new products and services, and to fulfill any legal and regulatory requirements. We tell our customers about the general uses of information we collect about them, and we will provide additional explanation if requested. We give our customers choices about how their data will be used. On a regular basis, we provide our Customers the ability to decline any or all future email communications. Customers may also decide if and how they wish to be contacted via other communication media. We give Customers access to their data online. A customer may change, update or add additional information at any time by contacting customer service.

We ensure information quality. We use advanced technology and well-defined employee practices to help ensure that customer data is processed promptly, accurately and completely.

We use information security safeguards. Access to customer data is limited to those who specifically need it to conduct their business responsibilities. We use security techniques designed to protect our customer data -- especially that data which is used by employees and business partners to fulfill customer services. We limit the release of customer information. In addition to providing Customers with the opportunity to refuse marketing offers, we release information only at the customers' requests, or when required to do so by law or other regulatory authority. When a court order or subpoena requires us to release information, we notify the customer directly so that his/her legal rights can be exercised, if appropriate. The only exceptions to this policy are when we are prohibited by court order or law from notifying the customer, or cases in which fraud and/or criminal activity is suspected.

We hold employees responsible for our privacy principles. Each PuriTeam employee is personally responsible for maintaining customer confidentiality. All PuriTeam employees are required to sign an agreement that they will comply with these policies. Employees who violate these policies are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal. Employees are expected to report violations -- and may do so confidentially -- to their managers or other supervisors. PuriTeam has an employee who has been assigned the responsibility for assuring the adherence to PuriTeam's privacy policy. Check this web site for this contact. The PuriTeam Corporate Headquarters can be contacted at the following email address: info(at)PuriTeam.com

Information Use

If you provide us with your E-mail address, or have done so in the past, we may send you E-mail offers or newsletters. These offers or newsletters are based on information you provided in your customer application, registration forms, in surveys, from information that may indicate purchasing preferences and lifestyle, as well as information available from external sources, such as census bureau data. These E-mail offers will come from a PuriTeam site only. Your information or email address is never sold to a third party. All offers are carefully developed to guarantee that they meet our standards. Our goal is to target offers to Customers who will find them of value.

The data you provide is used to enhance the services and offers we bring you. As a result of providing personal information, PuriTeam can provide a more customized online experience, making your interaction with us more productive, helpful and fun. You can also expect to receive occasional communications targeted directly toward your lifestyle interests.

Declining E-mail Offers - PuriTeam provides Customers with an easy means to decline receiving E-mail offers and recognizes the importance of providing you with choices. At any time, you may request to discontinue receiving these offers from us by simply replying to the E-mail address.

Activity Tracking. We do monitor URL click-throughs found in our email messages. The click-through rate is reviewed in order to: track participation in order to judge effectiveness and to track customer interests; track response rates for marketing purposes or to report to a client in aggregate form only. Individual activity is never shared with employees or third parties.

Children

PuriTeam does not knowingly solicit data from children, and we will not knowingly market to children. PuriTeam defines children as anyone less than 18 years of age.

What else should I know about my privacy?

Third party Internet sites and services accessible through PuriTeam have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of us. PuriTeam has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords, ID, or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. While we aim to protect your personal information, PuriTeam cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. While each PuriTeam site puts forth its best efforts in adhering to these minimum privacy standards, additional restrictions may be imposed to comply with state and local laws, and/or station specific programs, products and services.

A Word About Cookies

Cookies were originally designed to help a Web site distinguish a user's browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. A cookie is a small string of text that a Web site can send to your browser. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your E-mail address. Currently, Web sites use cookies to enhance the user's visit; in general, cookies can securely store a user's ID and password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited or keep track of selections in a "shopping cart."

A word about "Remarketing".  From time to time, we use cookies to identify who has visited our site so that we can remarket our services to them as they are browsing the internet in the future.  At present, this is a test.

If you are just browsing a PuriTeam Web site, a cookie identifies only your browser. If you sign up for a free email account at one of our participating sites, a cookie is issued for security purposes. The cookie is set when you login and times out 30 minutes after your last interaction with your email account. After you are logged out (manually or by the cookie) the cookie is rendered invalid and goes away when your cache is cleared. This type of security measure is useful for individuals who share a machine or use a public machine. If you become a registered user on a PuriTeam Web site (with a designated user ID and password), we may use cookies so that we can provide personalized information that we believe will be of value to you based on preferences you have stated while visiting the site. It is possible to set your browser to inform you when a cookie is being placed -- this way you have the opportunity to decide whether to accept the cookie. If you are just browsing one of our sites and are not a registered user, you do not have to accept a cookie and you may still continue utilizing the site, though you might not be able to experience the site to fullest extent. You may set your cookie preferences according to your browser's instructions.
