What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" (IP address). When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within the Well Roots Network, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the Well Roots Network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement.
What are cookies?
How do you use single-pixel gifs?
Well Roots and its Affiliates may use single-pixel gif images, sometimes referred to as web bugs or web beacons, to count Web page accesses and gather some general statistical information. Well Roots does not gather personal information through the use of these images.
What information do you collect when I register for something?
Well Roots may offer access to some services that are free but that require registration. We may use your registration contact information to send notification of Well Roots™ products and services by e-mail and/or postal mail. We also may share that information with our Affiliates. Well Roots and/or its Affiliates may send you promotional material that is related to the topic of the service for which you registered unless you have chosen not to receive it. We may also use your IP address internally and share it with third parties providers to improve the appearance and functionality of the website.
What other information do you request?
We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a survey or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about conferences and trade shows). Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. We do not intend to sell, or rent your e-mail address to non-affiliate third-party advertisers, without your consent.
We may from time to time send an e-mail announcing new Well Roots™ products and services or those of our Affiliates. Except as stated above, Well Roots will not send you e-mail that you have not agreed to receive. If you choose to supply your postal address in an online form, you may receive mailings from our third party vendors who assist with the preparation of our Newsletters and other Well Roots and/or Affiliate mailings, but not non-affiliate third party advertisers. When you enter a contest or other promotion, we may ask for your name, address, and e-mail address so we can administer the contest and notify winners.
What information do you collect when I purchase something?
If you are purchasing something from Well Roots we need to know your first and last name, e-mail address, and mailing address. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status. This information may also be used by us to notify you of related products and services.
Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?
Well Roots will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
1) Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Well Roots.
2) Protect and defend the rights or property of the Well Roots Network of sites and related properties, or visitors to the Well Roots Network of sites and related properties,
3) Identify persons who may be violating the law, the Well Roots legal notice and Web site User Agreement, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing the Well Roots Network or its related properties,
4) Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities.
Well Roots uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. Well Roots reserves the right to transfer all such information in connection with the sale of all or part of the stock or assets of Well Roots or its Affiliates, licensors or licensees. Furthermore, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties that receive the information. We are not responsible for such third party privacy policies or how they treat information about their users.
