Mind & Body Products, LLC Privacy Policy

Ever notice how some companies send you a copy of your privacy “rights” in the mail, only to give you a dozen reasons why they can make exceptions and share your information with “third party” companies?

Granted, there are some specific and legitimate uses for sharing personal information with third parties that are perfectly acceptable.

However, buried down in the fine print, often one can find such qualifications as this:

You may tell us not to share information about you with non-financial companies outside of our family of companies. Even if you do tell us not to share, we may do so as required or permitted by law [Emphasis added.]

Another company offered this exception:

We may also disclose nonpublic personal information about you to nonaffiliated third parties as permitted by law. Please be advised that the opt-out rights described below will not apply to the sharing of information with these third parties…

Of course, at the end of those types of privacy policies, there are always the solemn warnings about “identity theft,” protecting yourself “from fraud,” and a host of other potential ills that can happen to you.

But doesn’t the sharing of your personal information increase the risk you face of having your privacy compromised through human error or other means?
 
Furthermore, wouldn’t it make sense that the more your information is shared and spread around, the less you are able to maintain your privacy or the accuracy of the information shared about you?

At Mind & Body Products, LLC, we use only the minimal amount of account and contact information necessary, such as name, address, email address, or phone number, in order to help us provide you with the best service to communicate with you (order status, special offers, etc.) and deliver your orders in a prompt manner.

Also, Mind & Body Products automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookie information, and the pages you request. This is only for the purpose of customizing the advertising and content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, make contact when necessary, conduct research, and provide data to our company’s technical division to better improve our services.

Once we receive your transmission, we take reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to ensure the security and confidentiality of your information. We do so using industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software in order to encrypt the information you input. However, even though we strive our best to protect your personal information, Mind & Body Products cannot ensure or warrant 100% the security of any data you transmit to us or from our online products or services.

We do not store your credit card information on our website or in any of the company’s databases. It’s only used at the moment of purchase, and we reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, in using SSL technology, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing, in accordance with their information requirements to validate the purchase.

As long as you follow standard computer use practices, chances of you becoming a victim of a fraudulent transaction made on your behalf are much less. (For example, protect yourself against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by signing off when finished using a shared computer.)

As members/owners of Mind & Body Products, we have shopped hundreds, even thousands, of times over the Internet, and not one of us has ever had a fraudulent purchase take place using our credit card or debit card numbers.

Our site does include third-party advertising and links to other websites. However, we do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party websites.

The only time we will share information is if one of our wholesale customers do not pay for products purchased on company credit, and we have to report it to the appropriate agencies in order to be able to seek compensation through legal channels.

Beyond that, Mind & Body Products, LLC will never rent, sell, or share personal information with any other company for any reason whatsoever.

Period.

You can count on that.

To contact us regarding any questions regarding any portion of this policy, please call us at 920-739-1259 or email us at info[at]mindandbodyproducts[dot]com.
