Revised February 24, 2016
This Website is a general audience website and we do not knowingly collect PII from children under 13 years of age. If we learn that we have PII of a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information.
The Information We Collect and How We Use It
Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
When you enter an order or submit an order to a Consultant, we need to know your name, email address (to send a receipt of the order), mailing/shipping/billing addresses, phone number, credit card number and expiration.
When you become a consultant, we need to know your name, email address, phone, mailing address, Social Insurance or tax identification number (for financial reporting purposes) and credit card number and expiration date.
When you create an account, we need to know your name and email address and we may request other information about you.
We may share your PII with outside contractors or agents who work on our behalf to help us manage our informational activities or provide services on our behalf, but they must abide by applicable privacy principles and this policy, and may only use your PII to provide us with a specific service and not for any other purpose.
Any communications that you submit or post to an interactive feature such as a blog or message board may be viewable by other users of the Website. While we may remove PII about you, we assume no obligation to do so. We are not responsible for, nor can we guarantee protection of, any PII you submit or post to the interactive features of the TPC Website. Therefore, you acknowledge and understand you have no expectation of privacy in the content you submit to the Website's interactive features, whether or not it contains your PII.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
The Website automatically also collects certain information that is not personally identifiable. For example, the Website automatically recognizes your domain name, IP address and region or geographical area, browser version, operating system and the website you passed through to reach our Website. In addition, our Website automatically gathers certain usage information like the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Website and its various web pages or content, very much like television ratings that tell how many people tuned in to a program. We also may collect certain information through cookies and similar tools as further described in the section below titled "Cookies." This information will not be used by The Pampered Chef for behavioural advertising.
Whether you place an order or create a profile, we use industry-standard secure server software (SSL) and encrypt the information you input before it is sent to us. In addition, we use commercially reasonable measures to protect the customer data against unauthorized access. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect PII, to the extent permitted by law, we do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our website, and you do so at your own risk. We are not responsible for the actions of third parties.
Your information will be retained for a reasonable period of time and as necessary for the purpose for which it was obtained, or as required by relevant statutory, regulatory, or contractual requirements, after which it will be securely destroyed or anonymized. We may remove personal identifiers from your information and maintain and use it in anonymous form that may later be combined with other information to generate aggregated information. Such anonymous and aggregated information may be sold, traded, rented, or shared.
