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 policy 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 the website (including any versions optimized for viewing on a wireless or tablet device) (“Website”), all email newsletters published or distributed by Vitamin360.com, all other interactive features and communications provided by Vitamin360.com, and to any and all data and information provided by you to Vitamin360.com at call centers, events, or promotions, and all data and information provided by you or collected through your membership in the Vitamin360.com Loyalty Program, however accessed and/or used, that are operated by us, made available by us, or produced and maintained by Vitamin360.com (or “we”, “us”, or “our”).
1. What Information We Collect
We collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the website, 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 website, 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 website 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 website, checkout online may include the following (“Personal Information”):

- Loyalty Program Membership number and expiration date.
- Passwords and usernames associated with our website and/or to authenticate your participation in a program or purchase of goods or services.
In addition, when you interact with the website, we may collect certain information that does not identify you individually and to the extent you interact with our website, interactive communications or apps, our servers may automatically keep an activity log of your use of our website. 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.

You may change your marketing preferences or remove yourself from our mailing lists by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the footer of promotional emails or by e-mailing us at email@example.com.
Please allow sufficient time for your preferences to be processed. Please note, however, that you generally cannot opt-out of service related announcements, e.g. if delivery of a product or service is delayed.
Access to Personal Information
You may request access to the Personal Information we have about you. For detailed instructions, please contact us.
12. 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 Website. 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.
When you place orders on or through the Website, 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 Website 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 Website. Nearly all current internet browsers and devices can support a secure connection. Visit your browser or device’s website to download a current version.
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. Vitamin360.com will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (including unsolicited correspondence, such as letters, phone calls or e-mail messages).
