What information are you collecting, how are you collecting it, and what do you use it for?
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 Irwin Naturals 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 Irwin Naturals Network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. We may also use your IP address internally and share it with Service Providers to improve the appearance and functionality of the website.
What information do you collect when I purchase something?
If you are purchasing something from Irwin Naturals we need to know your first and last name, e-mail address, mailing address, billing address and phone number. Only the last 4 digits of your credit card number is stored in our system. 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.
Personal information gathered during purchases may be shared with Affiliates or Service Providers in order to maintain or service accounts, provide customer service, process or fulfill orders and transactions, verify customer information, process payments, provide financing, provide advertising or marketing services, provide analytic services, or provide similar services on behalf of the business or Service Provider.
What information do you collect when I register for something?
Irwin Naturals may offer access to some services that are free but that require registration, such as subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about conferences and trade shows. To register for these types of services we may need to know your e-mail address, and/or mailing address. We may use your registration contact information to send notification of Irwin Naturals® products and services by e-mail and/or postal mail. We may also share that information with our Affiliates and Service Providers if required to perform the specific task required by the registration. Irwin Naturals 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 do not intend to sell, or rent your e-mail address to non-affiliate third-party advertisers.
We may from time to time send an e-mail announcing new Irwin Naturals™ products and services or those of our Affiliates. Except as stated above, Irwin Naturals will not send you an 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 Irwin Naturals 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.
