Last Updated: June 28, 2018

Your privacy is as important to us as it is to you! We treat the information you provide us (such as your name or email – aka “Personal Information” as further defined below) with the highest level of integrity and responsibility. This statement describes what we collect, what we do with it and how you can manage it, plus some information about how the site operates and the security safeguards we have in place.

The policies below are applicable to data and information collected through PRS VIT websites (including any versions optimized for viewing on a wireless or tablet device) (“PRS VIT Websites”), all apps published by PRS VIT (“PRS VIT Apps”), all email newsletters published or distributed by PRS VIT, all other interactive features and communications provided by PRS VIT, and to any and all data and information provided by you to PRS VIT at PRS VIT stores, call centers, events, or promotions, and all data and information provided by you or collected through your membership in the PRS VIT Distributor Program (“PRS VIT Online Stores”), however accessed and/or used, that are operated by us, made available by us, or produced and maintained by PRS GLOBAL BUSINESS (collectively “PRS VIT” or “we”, “us”, or “our”). THESE POLICIES DO NOT APPLY TO STORESES OF PRS VIT. OUR STORESES OPERATE THEIR OWN STORES AND WEBSITES AND MAY ENGAGE IN OTHER DATA COLLECTION AND USE PRACTICES OR MAY PARTNER WITH OTHER THIRD PARTIES WHO MAY TREAT YOUR DATA DIFFERENTLY OR USE OTHER TRACKING METHODS AND TECHNOLOGIES. WE DO NOT CONTROL THESE WEBSITES OR THE BUSINESS PRACTICES OF THESE STORESES. IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE PRIVACY PRACTICES OF A PRS VIT STORESE, YOU SHOULD CONTACT THAT STORESE DIRECTLY.

By using our PRS VIT Online Stores, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement, please do not use the PRS VIT Online Stores and/or supply us with your Personal Information. We reserve the right to modify or amend the terms of this Privacy Statement from time to time without notice. Your continued use of the PRS VIT Online Stores following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes. If we intend to apply the modifications or amendments to this Privacy Statement retroactively or to personal information already in our possession, we will provide you with specific notice of the modifications or amendments.

What Information We Collect:

We collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the PRS VIT Online Stores, personal information and non-personal information. Personal information is information that you may supply to us, as described more fully below, i.e., when you make a purchase, obtain a subscription, complete a survey or participate in a promotion, attend or participate in a program, register on the PRS VIT Online Stores, upload content to a website or app, participate in a community, or provide your e-mail address. Non-personal information includes information that does not personally identify you, but it may include tracking and usage information about your location, demographics, use of the PRS VIT Online Stores and use of the internet (“Non-Personal Information”).

In order to provide you with the best customer experience, we occasionally ask you to tell us a little about yourself. The type of personal information we collect when you register on or use our PRS VIT Online Stores, check out online or pay at the register may include the following (“Personal Information”):

  • Your name, address, telephone number, birthdate, and email address.
  • Credit or debit card information.
  • Passwords and usernames associated with our PRS VIT Online Stores and/or to authenticate your participation in a program or purchase of goods or services.

In addition, when you interact with the PRS VIT Online Stores, we may collect certain information that does not identify you individually and to the extent you interact with PRS VIT Online Stores that are our websites, interactive communications or apps, our servers may automatically keep an activity log of your use of our PRS VIT Online Stores. Generally, we collect and store the following categories of Non-Personal Information:

  • Non-identifiable demographic data such as age, gender, and five digit zip code.
  • Device information about your computer, browser, mobile device, or other device that you use to access certain of the PRS VIT Online Stores. This information may include IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and other transactional information.
  • Analytics and usage information about your use of the PRS VIT Online Stores.
  • Additional “traffic data” and log files such as time of visit, date of visit, software crash reports, session identification number, access times, and referring website addresses.
  • Other information regarding your visits to and use of the PRS VIT Online Stores that is not Personal Information.

Collection of Your Source IP Address/Location Information

We may collect and store location information about you associated with your account that you volunteer on or at a PRS VIT Outlet or enable to be collected through certain of the PRS VIT Online Stores on your device. Except for the collection of your source IP address which may disclose the location of your device at the time you access the PRS VIT Online Stores, we do not collect any location information that you do not volunteer or enable. We will delete any location information that you request us to delete.

Collection of Personal Information Through Social Media Platforms or Using Your Social Media Logon

When you interact with any PRS VIT page or account on a social media platform, including, but not limited to, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, or Pinterest, we may collect the personal information that you make available to us on that page or account including your account ID or “handle.” However, we will comply with the privacy policies of the corresponding social media platform and we will only collect and store such personal information that we are permitted to collect by these social media platforms. If you publish your social media profile to PRS VIT, we may collect personal information that you make available as part of that profile.

Collection of Information From Other Sources

We also may collect information about you that we may receive from other sources to, among other things, enable us to verify, update information contained in our records and to better customize the PRS VIT Online Stores for you. We may also collect Personal Information from credit reporting agencies to, for example, determine your creditworthiness, credit score, and credit usage, in accordance with applicable laws.

Collection of Personal and Non-Personal Information Through Surveys, Sweepstakes and Promotions

From time to time we may provide you with the opportunity to participate in surveys, sweepstakes or other promotions through the PRS VIT Online Stores, which might be sponsored or conducted by us or a third party. If you participate, we will request certain Personal Information from you. Participation in these sweepstakes and promotions is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this Personal Information. The requested Personal Information typically includes contact information. If there is a third party sponsor involved please make sure to review that party’s privacy policy.

Collection of Third Party Personal Information Through Tell-A-Friend Feature

We may from time to time conduct a referral service to introduce people you know to our PRS VIT Online Stores. If you choose to use our referral service to tell someone about our PRS VIT Online Stores or a discount on the PRS VIT Online Stores, we will ask you for your contact’s name and email address. We will automatically send your contact a one-time email inviting him or her to visit one or more of the PRS VIT Online Stores.

Your contact may contact us at mailto:[email protected] to request that we remove this information from our database.

Information Sharing Disclosure Requests (California residents)

California residents have the right to request one Notice of Information-Sharing Disclosure per year that will identify the third parties with whom PRS VIT or any of our affiliates has shared your Personal Information. You may request the Notice of Information-Sharing Disclosure by writing to us at: PRS VIT, Customer Service, or by e-mailing us at mailto:[email protected]. We will respond to your request for a Notice of Information-Sharing Disclosure within 30 days.

Security of Your Personal Information:

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of Personal Information in our custody and control. We also are committed to employing reasonable technology and processes in order to protect the security of the PRS VIT Online Stores. However, even with the best technology, no location is 100% secure. Where possible, we will ask that any third parties to whom we transfer your Personal Information to take comparable steps to protect that security.

Secure Shopping:

When you place orders on or through the PRS VIT Websites and Apps, all of your order information, including your card number and delivery address, is transmitted through the Internet using SSL technology, which encrypts your order information before transmitting it to our secure server. This is designed to prevent someone other than operators of the PRS VIT Websites and Apps from capturing and viewing your Personal Information. If your Web browser or device cannot support this level of security, you will not be able to order products through the PRS VIT Websites and Apps. Nearly all current internet browsers and devices can support a secure connection. Visit your browser or device’s website to download a current version.

Passwords:

To provide you with an increased level of security, online access to your Personal Information is protected with a password that you select. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. PRS VIT will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (including unsolicited correspondence, such as letters, phone calls or e-mail messages).

This Privacy Statement only applies to PRS VIT Online Stores. The PRS VIT Websites, PRS VIT Apps and PRS VIT interactive features may include links to the websites of business partners, vendors and advertisers.
