Collecting Your Information
In general, you can visit many of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may track the Internet domain address from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but individual users will remain anonymous, unless you voluntarily tell us who you are.
There may be times (such as when you make a purchase, subscribe to a service or participate in contests, sweepstakes or promotions, etc.) we will ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, email address, shipping/billing address, telephone number, credit card information, birth date, gender, occupation, personal interests, etc. We also maintain a record of your online product purchases. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products, or access certain services, offers and content on our website.
Using Your Information
We use the personal information you provide for internal purposes, such as confirming and tracking your order, subscription or registration, analyzing trends and statistics, informing you of our new products, services and offers, and providing you with information from and about Bel-Aqua Pool Supply.
We contract with companies or persons to provide certain services including credit card processing, shipping, data management, promotional services, etc. We provide information needed for them to perform these services. We also require them to confirm that their privacy practices are consistent with ours.
Although unlikely, in certain instances we may disclose your personal information when we have reason to believe that it is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities who may be causing injury to you, to Bel-Aqua Pool Supply or to others. We may also disclose your personal information when we believe the law requires it.
Except as provided above or in the event of a merger, consolidation, or sale of all or substantially all of our assets, we will not sell or otherwise share any of your information with any third party without your permission.
