Last revised: March 14, 2010
At MoonShine, we know your privacy is important to you. We do not abuse the information you provide us through our Website. We make great efforts to ensure that it remains secure, both online and offline. Please read on to learn about our privacy policies. Then, if you have any questions or concerns about the policies, please contact us at email@example.com or by calling 877-577-1034.
We respect your privacy:
MoonShine does not disclose any of your personally identifiable information (e.g., name, address, e-mail address, etc.) without your consent except as described in this Privacy Statement.
What information we collect:
We collect information about our users by direct solicitation or by using cookies, log files, clear gifs, and/or third parties. The information we collect includes the following:
· We collect the domain name of the e-mail addresses of all visitors to our site and information on what pages these visitors access. Our Web server may also collect the address of the Web site that you came from before visiting our site, which browser you used to view our site, and any search terms you have entered on our site. This information does not include any personally identifiable information.
· We collect comments and requests you submit to us, including your name, e-mail address and any other information you include in your submission, such as your personal preferences (product wish-lists, hobbies, likes and dislikes relating to the products we may sell, etc.). When asking for personal information on an online form, we will identify which fields are required in order to fulfill your request.
· We collect your e-mail address when you place it on one of our free subscription mailing lists.
· If you purchase from us, we collect your name, billing address, phone number, e-mail address, shipping address and credit card information.
· We collect information you provide when participating a survey or contest on our site. The requested information typically includes contact information and demographic information.
What we use the information for:
We use the information we collect in order to (i) fill orders for products or services, (ii) respond to requests for information, (iii) administer special shopping or reward programs, (iv) provide customer services, (v) administer sweepstakes or promotions, (vi) offer new products and services, (vii) measure and improve the effectiveness of our Web sites, our marketing endeavors or our services and offers, (viii) tailor our offerings to your preferences, (ix) administer surveys, (x) send marketing communications, or (xi) other business purposes.
When we share the information:
We do not sell or rent your e-mail address or your personally identifiable information to any third parties.
We share aggregated demographic information with our business partners and advertisers, but this information does not include any personally identifiable information.
We may share your personal information with third parties who supply services to us. For example, we may release personal information to third parties involved in processing and shipping your order, such as the issuer of your credit card and the shipping carrier, and to other third parties who might perform services on our behalf, such as fulfilling your order, processing payments, sending MoonShine marketing communications, servicing products, fulfilling subscription services, conducting research or surveys, or sending regular mail and e-mail on our behalf.
We may share the information collected in connection with a contest or survey with any co-sponsors. Contest winners’ names and states of residence are also made available to the general public.
All information we collect may be shared with current or future MoonShine entities, subsidiaries and divisions, and in the event of a merger, our acquisition by another company, our reorganization or dissolution, or the sale of all or a portion of our assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred.
All information we collect is also subject to disclosure whenever we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary or appropriate in connection with any judicial, criminal or regulatory proceeding, investigation, or other legal process, or in order to comply with law. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we believe to be unlawful. We may release certain personal information when we believe it is reasonably necessary in order to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves. We may also release personal information in the event of an audit, or a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event.
Third-party use of shared information:
MoonShine is not responsible for the privacy policies of third parties with whom MoonShine shares information as described in this Privacy Statement (including but not limited to suppliers of services and contest co-sponsors), nor for any uses to which such third parties might put the information with or without MoonShine’s consent.
We protect your account information:
We employ the latest 128‑bit encryption technology in all areas of the site that require you to provide personal or account information. This is done to protect you from unauthorized use of the information you are sending to our server. In order to take full advantage of the protection we make available, you will need to make sure you have the latest security features on your browser. Regularly download and install the latest version of your browser from the browser's manufacturer.
Please remember, though, that e-mail communication to us (and to virtually all other Internet vendors) is not encrypted and not secure, and should not contain sensitive information you want protected from public disclosure.
Please remember, also, that though we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We don’t obtain personal information from children:
MoonShine does not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 13 years of age. Should it become known to us that personal information has been provided by someone under 13 years of age, we will not make use of that information or keep it in retrievable form except as may be necessary to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
We use, not abuse, cookies:
