Naturopathic Alternatives® cares about the privacy of our Guests. Our goal is to provide the best learning/shopping experience possible for our Guests, and we strive to achieve that goal through our Internet experience. Naturopathic Alternatives® collects client information to enhance your online experience.
Naturopathic Alternatives® gathers navigational information about where our visitors go on our web site and information about the technical efficiencies of our web site and services (i.e. time to connect to our web site, time to download pages). This information allows us to see which areas of ColicCare.com are most visited and helps us to better understand our Guests’ experience at ColicCare.com. This helps us to improve the quality of our visitors’ online experiences by recognizing and delivering more of the features, services and products our visitors prefer. In the process of gathering navigational information, non-personally identifiable information (i.e. domain type, browser version, service provider and IP address) may be collected which will provide information regarding a visitor’s use of our web site (such as the time of a visitor’s last visit to a page on our web site).
Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
We collect information from you, which you provide to us at this web site when you establish or update an account, participate in a survey or shop online. Categories of information collected include name, address, email address, recipient’s email address, telephone number, credit card information and messages you create. This information is used to enable Naturopathic Alternatives® to deliver products that you have ordered, to fulfill requests that you have created, to contact you or the recipient(s) in the event of order or delivery difficulties, for verification, to respond to your inquiries and to deliver services and information about our products or web site to you. We use third parties to help us provide services, such as processing payments, monitoring site activity, conducting surveys, maintaining our database, administering and locating emails, and assisting in administering sweepstakes.
If you opt into our email list, when offered, or make a purchase through ColicCare.com, the information you provide (for example, name, address, and credit card) will be added to a database. Naturopathic Alternatives® may use that information for our own internal marketing purposes. We may request information from you about your fashion tastes, your hobbies or your music interests. This information will be collected from you directly and openly. Using the information you give us, we may contact you with information or special offers. We will not require you to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity as a condition of participation. Naturopathic Alternatives® does not sell or disclose personal information to outside third parties. Naturopathic Alternatives® continually strives to maintain compliance with legal regulations. If we become aware of or have a good faith belief that we must disclose information about you in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy, or other unlawful activity, we will disclose specific information about you to the appropriate legal authorities in order to protect the users of our Web site, the site, and/or the public. We value our relationship with our Guests of all ages. We welcome parents and their children to explore our site together and participate in our free email newsletters, when offered, shopping and other promotional activities. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we will not gather or use personal information from any Guest who indicates they are less than 13 years of age. If we become aware that we’ve gathered personal information from a minor, we will remove that information from our records immediately.
We also use a technology known as clear gifs, which are typically stored in emails, to help us confirm your receipt of, and response to, our emails and to provide you with a more personalized experience. If you register or purchase product through ColicCare.com, we may associate navigational information from your previous browsing visits with the personal information you provide. In addition, we carefully select third party advertising companies and allow them to collect non-personally identifiable information by placing cookies when you choose to visit ColicCare.com. This information is used to report marketing program effectiveness directly back to Naturopathic Alternatives®. This information is used in aggregate form and is not in any way personally identifiable.
For your convenience, our web site may contain links to other sites. Naturopathic Alternatives® is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.
ColicCare.com’s Email List
Once implemented, joining ColicCare.com’s email list will allow you to receive exclusive information about special offers, new products and much more. If at any time you would like to stop future delivery of ColicCare.com’s email messages, please follow the removal instructions located at the bottom of each email message. This will not prevent you from receiving email communications relating to any online order you place at ColicCare.com, requests to participate in surveys about our products or other operational email communications.
Naturopathic Alternatives® will never ask you through email to provide personal information including credit card numbers, passwords, mother’s maiden name, bank account numbers, ATM pass codes or social security numbers. The best way to protect yourself from phishing scams is for you to avoid supplying personal information to any email request. If you believe the request might be legitimate, please call the company’s customer service department to verify this before providing any information, but do not use phone numbers contained in the email (if any are included).
Applicability of Privacy & Security Policy
Questions or Changes in Policy
We have made every effort to ensure that the information transmitted to us online is secure through the use of a secure server. With respect to online sales, the person whose name appears on the card must be the one who places the order. Naturopathic Alternatives® uses secure sockets layer (SSL) encryption for securing communications and transactions across the Internet. The SSL protocol uses digital certificates to create and secure confidential communications “pip” between the purchaser and our web entity. Data transmitted over an SSL connection can not be tampered with or forged without the two parties becoming immediately aware of the tampering. A key or padlock icon in the lower corner of the browser window identifies the security mode of a browser. When the browser is running in “normal” mode, the key looks broken or the padlock looks open. Once an SSL connection has been established, the key becomes whole, or the padlock becomes closed, indicating that the browser is in “secure” mode. SSL is supported in the vast majority of browsers, which means that almost anyone with a browser can benefit from SSL encryption. In addition, it is our policy not to send your credit card number via email. In fact, this is a practice we recommend you adopt in all of your internet activities.
