Information Collection, Use and Security
When you supply personal information on the myPHYTOS web site, we will use it for the purpose for which it was collected (e.g., to enter you in a sweepstakes or to fulfill the delivery of a sweepstakes prize or product order) in accordance with the terms of this Policy. We also use personal information to keep track of a user's activities on our sites, to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze web site usage, to improve our web site features, design and content and to refine our marketing strategies.
When you provide us with personal information, you are authorizing us to use that information in accordance with the terms of this Policy, which includes your right to limit our use of your personal information as described in this Policy.
The web site you entered may also collect personal information from you about a third party (e.g., the site might allow you to send an email or message to a friend, in which case we will need that person's name and email address). Please note that we use such information only for the specified purpose (e.g., to deliver the email message) and we will not contact the third party again by email unless and until the third party contacts us.
When you visit myPHYTOS’s web sites we also collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. The IP address data does not contain personal information about you and is used by myPHYTOS and/or the host of our web sites to administer our sites and to determine the numbers of different visitors to the sites.
We at myPHYTOS are concerned about your privacy and maintaining security of the personal information we collect and receive. We take appropriate steps to secure personal information, to prevent unauthorized access to such information, maintain data accuracy and to ensure only appropriate use of personally identifying information. myPHYTOS has established appropriate physical, electronic and managerial safeguards to secure personal information, and we use industry-standard SSL encryption to protect data transmissions.
With Whom We May Share Information
In the course of doing business, we employ other companies to perform a variety of functions on our behalf. For example, at times we may retain third parties to analyze, update and correct data we collect on our web sites, including personal information, to help us improve our products, our database and our web sites. In addition, we may share personal information with agents, suppliers, fulfillment houses and other third parties to allow delivery of prizes, information, products or services. These suppliers and other third parties may have access to your personal information if it is needed to perform their functions for myPHYTOS, but they are not authorized by us to use your personal information in any way other than the intended use.
We may release your personal information if required to do so by law, or by search warrant, subpoena or court order, or to a third party to which ownership of myPHYTOS is transferred via an acquisition, merger, sale of assets or otherwise.
