Web Site Privacy Policy

The web site you have entered is operated by or on behalf of Pompeian, Inc.

Pompeian, Inc. is committed to protecting your personal privacy. This Privacy Policy outlines the type of information that is collected by Pompeian, Inc. on this web site, and how we use and protect it. This Policy also tells you what to do if you do not want your Personal Information collected when you visit our web site, and how you can change information you have already provided to us. This Policy applies only to the Pompeian, Inc. web site. For example, it does not apply to banners, sweepstakes and other advertisements or promotions we may sponsor or participate in on web sites owned by third parties.

Your Consent to This Privacy Policy

By using our web site, you signify that you agree with the terms of our current Privacy Policy as posted in this area of the site. If you do not agree with any term in this Policy, please do provide any Personal Information (defined below) on this site.

If you choose not to provide Personal Information on this site, you may not be able to do certain things, like access particular areas of the site, enter a sweepstakes or contest, request samples, or send us e-mail.

Collection of Personal Information

As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means personally identifiable information such as your name, street address, telephone number, credit card information, screen name and email address. The site you entered may collect some or all of these types of Personal Information. Please be assured that Pompeian, Inc will not collect any Personal Information from your visits to our sites unless you provide this information voluntarily.

When you provide us with Personal Information, you are authorizing us to use that information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy, which includes your right to limit our use of the Personal Information as described in this Policy (see “Who to Contact” below).

The site you entered may also collect Personal Information from you about a third party (e.g., the site might allow you to send an electronic “post card” to a friend, in which case we will need that person’s name and e-mail address). Please note that we use such information only for the specified purpose (e.g., to mail the post card) and we will not contact the third party again by e-mail unless and until the third party contacts us.

How We Use Your Information

When you supply Personal Information at this web site, the brand whose site you entered will use it for the express purpose for which it was collected (e.g., to enter you in a sweepstakes or to send you a sample). It may also be used by the brand whose site you entered, as well as by our other brands, to contact you regarding other products and services which may be of interest to you (including those we may offer jointly with other companies).

At times we may retain third parties to analyze data we collect on our web sites, including Personal Information, solely to help us improve our products and our web sites. In addition, if you order a product or service from us, we may share Personal Information with suppliers and other third parties to allow delivery of such product or service. These suppliers and other third parties are not authorized by us to use your Personal Information in any other way.

Finally, please note that we will release your Personal Information if required to do so by law, or by search warrant, subpoena or court order.

Other Information We May Collect

We are constantly trying to improve how we promote our web sites. To help us do this, we may measure the effectiveness of our web presence by determining what you clicked on to get to our site.

Information about your computer, such as your IP address (a number assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Internet), the type of Internet browser you are using and the type of computer operating system you are using may also be collected and linked to your Personal Information. This is to ensure that our web sites present the best web experience for visitors, and that they are an effective information resource.

Finally, we may supplement the information that you provided us with other information that we receive from third parties. We do this for marketing purposes in order to provide more targeted products and service to meet your needs.

Security of Information

We take reasonable precautions to keep your Personal Information secure. All personally identifiable information is subject to restricted access to prevent unauthorized access, modification or misuse.
