Introduction

Nectar Online Media, LLC (“nectarOM” or “we” or “us” or “our”) respects the privacy of its Members (“you” or “Member”) and has developed this “Privacy Policy” to demonstrate its commitment to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect, how that information may be used, with whom it may be shared, and your choices about such uses and disclosures.  We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully when using the nectarOM website. By using nectarom.com, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions about our privacy practices, please refer to the end of this Privacy Policy for information on how to contact us.

What Data We Collect and Why

The information we learn from our Members helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping and social experience at nectarom.com.  We may collect Personal Information that can identify you (“Personal Information”) such as your name and email address as well as other information that does not identify you (“Anonymous Information”).  When you provide Personal Information through nectarom.com, the information may be sent to servers located across the United States.  Below are the types of information we gather.

  1. Information You Provide

We collect and store any Personal Information you submit to us voluntarily through nectarom.com or provide to us in some other manner (e.g., comments, contact form, webinar/white paper downloads). This includes identifying information, such as your name, address, email address, telephone number.

We also may request information about your interests, activities, gender, age, and other demographic information, which we may share with advertisers on an anonymous basis.  If you sign up for surveys or other activities that we make available to you on nectarom.com, we will collect the information designated along with such activity, which may include your contact information such as your address and phone number.  If you choose to sign up to receive information about products or services that may be of interest to you, we will collect your email address and other related information.

  1. Information From Other Sources

Cookies and Other Technologies

We use cookies and other technologies, such as, web beacons (also known as “clear gifs” and “pixel tags”) to recognize you, customize your experience, and serve advertisements.   Cookies are very small files placed on your computer, and they allow us to count the number of visitors to nectarom.com and distinguish repeat visitors from new visitors. They also allow us to save Member preferences and track Member trends. We rely on cookies for the proper operation of nectarom.com; therefore if your browser is set to reject all cookies, the website will not function properly and you may lose functionality. We do not link cookies or web beacons to any Personal Information.  We may also enable advertisers and ad servers to promote third-party products and/or services by placing advertisements on nectarom.com. These advertisers and ad servers may use cookies and/or web beacons to monitor information related to served advertisements. Clicking on such advertisements will direct you to the website of a third-party and the advertiser. This Privacy Policy does not cover the privacy practices of any advertisers or ad servers.

Information Collected Automatically

We automatically receive and collect from your internet use information like your IP address, the URLs of websites from which you arrive or leave nectarom.com, your type of browser and language, access times, the content of any undeleted cookies that your browser previously accepted from us, your operating system, your mobile provider, your mobile device, and your ISP. We may use such information to analyze trends, administer the website, prevent fraud, track visitor movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information.

Website Activity Information

We keep track of some of the actions you take on nectarom.com, such as participating on discussion blog posts. Furthermore, any information that is disclosed on discussion boards/forums become public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose any Personal Information.

Information Collected by Third Parties

We retain information you provide in connection with third party services, which includes Merchants, available through nectarom.com like surveys and polls or other third party research undertaken with your consent. We may also collect information about you and your friends who use nectarom.com, from any social network you may have connected from, in order to provide you with a more personalized experience.  We may establish programs with advertising partners and other websites in which they share information with us, such as, ask advertisers to tell us how our Members responded to the ads we showed them (and for comparison purposes, how other Members who didn’t see the ads acted on their website). This data sharing, commonly known as “conversion tracking,” helps us measure our advertising effectiveness and improve the quality of the advertisements you see. We may receive information about whether or not you’ve seen or interacted with certain ads on other websites in order to measure the effectiveness of those ads.  If in any of these cases we receive data that we do not already have, we will within 180 days, stop associating Personal Information received with any particular Member. If we institute these programs, we will only use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

As you browse nectarom.com advertising cookies will be placed on your computer so that we can understand what you are interested in. Our display advertising partner, AdRoll, then enables us to present you with retargeting advertising on other sites based on your previous interaction with nectarom.com. The techniques our partners employ do not collect personal information such as your name, email address, postal address, or telephone number.  You can visit this page to opt out of AdRoll’s and their partners’ targeted advertising.

E-mail Communications

We use your e-mail for promotional (e.g., newsletters, new product offerings, special discounts, special third-party offers) purposes. E-mail messages we send you may contain code that enables our database to track your usage of the e-mails, including whether the e-mail was opened and what links (if any) were clicked.  If you send an e-mail to us, or fill out our “Feedback” form, we will collect your e-mail address and the full content of your e-mail, including attached files, and other information you provide. We may use and display your full name and email address when you send an email notification to a friend through nectarom.com or the social network from which you have connected to nectarom.com (such as in an invitation, or when sharing your content). Additionally, we use your email address to contact you on behalf of your friends (such as when someone sends you a personal message) or notifications from a social network or other website with whom you have registered to receive such notifications.

We may also contact you by telephone or text message (including to any wireless number you may provide to us) solely in connection with nectarom.com services.

In addition to the uses outlined above, by using nectarom.com, you agree to allow us to anonymously use the information from you and your experiences to continue our consumer research objectives. The findings of our research may be sold to third parties or published in industry publications. However, such research will be conducted on an anonymous basis, and no Personal Information will be published or sold. This Privacy Policy does not limit our use or disclosure of any Anonymous Information in any way, and we reserve the right to use and disclose Anonymous Information to our partners, advertisers and other third parties in our discretion.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and are permitted by this Privacy Policy, and that any acquirer of ours or that acquirer’s assets may continue to process your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

  1. Disclosure of Anonymous Information to Trusted Third Parties By Us

We may share your Anonymous Information with third parties, but not in a manner that would reveal your identity. We may share your Personal Information, sometimes in conjunction with your Anonymous Information, with service providers that may be associated with us to perform functions on our behalf. For example, outsourced customer care agents or technology assistants may need access to your information to perform services for you. Your information will be treated as private and confidential by such service providers and not used for any other purpose than we authorize. In addition, from time to time, we may share Anonymous Information about our Member base with carefully selected third parties, so they can offer products and services that we believe may be of interest to our Members.

  1. Disclosure to Trusted Third Parties at Your Request

While visiting nectarom.com, we may provide you with advertisements, promotions, sweepstakes and offers from third party providers. If you choose to accept any such offers, you may either (depending on the situation) directly provide your information in connection with the offer to such third party provider, or we will provide your information, including billing information, to the third party provider by pre-populating the offer registration forms. Your information will not be transferred until you actually accept the offer. You may opt-out of the offer at any time up until your acceptance. Please refer to the third party provider’s own privacy policy (provided on the offer pages) if you have any questions regarding how your information is used by such providers. Please be aware that these offers may be presented on pages framed by nectarom.com. Although these offer pages have the look and feel of nectarom.com, you will be submitting your information directly to the third-party advertiser. You agree that we will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings, including the sharing of the information you supply to us with third party providers described here, or as the result of the presence of such providers on nectarom.com.

  1. Protection of nectarom.com and Others

We release account and other Personal Information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; or protect the rights, property, or safety of nectarom.com, our Members, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing Personal Information from Members for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Policy.

How We Keep Your Information Secure

The security of your Personal Information is important to nectarom.com.  We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your Personal Information from unauthorized access and disclosure.  nectarom.com uses a secure, encrypted connection (called an SSL connection) on all pages where you access or transmit Personal Information.  We want you to feel confident using nectarom.com to transact business. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your Personal Information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure.   It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.  Members should also take care with how they handle and disclose their Personal Information and should avoid sending Personal Information through insecure email.

Your Privacy With nectarom.com

nectarom.com will never ask for your username, password or any other Personal Information in an unsolicited phone call, email or letter. Further, any contact with nectarom.com customer service in which Personal Information is exchanged with a customer service representative will be used only for the purpose of satisfying your request. Any Personal Information you provide will not be recorded or used for any reason beyond that of the stated request.

Your Privacy with Our Affiliated Merchants and Advertisers

nectarom.com does not record Personal Information passed from our visitors to affiliated merchants. Order information, including order numbers and amounts, may be available to nectarom.com, the affiliated merchant, or third party affiliate program management companies for accurate tracking purposes, but this information will not be released by nectarom.com to other parties on a personally identifiable basis.  We may, however, aggregate this information on an anonymous basis to, among other things, perform market analysis and analyze trends.

Links to or Access from Other Websites

nectarom.com contains links to various other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other websites.  The ability to access information of third-parties from nectarom.com, or links to other websites or locations, is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such third-parties, their products, their services, other websites, locations or their content.

We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices or the content of any other websites that may provide access to, or be linked to or from, nectarom.com, including that of any social networking websites and third party advertisers whose offerings require you to navigate away from nectarom.com.  These third-party websites may independently solicit and collect information, including Personal Information, from you and, in some instances, provide us with information about your activities on those websites.  We encourage our Members to read the privacy statements of each and every website they visit.  Each of these websites has a privacy policy that may differ from that of nectarom.com.

Instead, please refer to the relevant website’s privacy and opt-out policy.

You may be able to access our account or content of your account from third party websites, such as social networking websites, by way of various applications. The privacy policies and practices of such websites in connection with information you disclose on such websites may differ from the practices of nectarom.com as set forth in this privacy statement, and you should review their policies and practices to ensure that the privacy of the information you submit on their website does not conflict with and is consistent with how you wish your information to be treated.
