3. USE OF “COOKIES”

We use cookies and other similar technologies to provide, protect and promote our services to you.

If personally identifiable information for someone other than yourself is submitted to us by you, you represent that you have received the authority to submit such information prior to doing so and such authority included permission for us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

6. INFORMATION SHARING

Third-Party Service Providers: We may use third party service providers to perform certain services on our behalf, such as web site hosting, providing web site usage analytics, sending email or other communications, providing marketing assistance and data analysis, providing consumer affairs services, fulfilling and processing orders, or performing other administrative services. Insofar as we are legally permitted to do so, we may provide these service providers with access to your personal information so that they can carry out the services they are performing for you or for us. Some of these service providers may collect information directly from you on our behalf; in such cases, these service providers are not permitted to use your personal information for their own use. We use a third-party payment processor and a third-party shipping agent to ensure the payment and delivery of your purchased products. We may use other third parties for other services from time to time. These third parties have no authority to use your personal information for their own promotional purposes. To assist us in our efforts to provide you with product information and promotional offers, we may share your information with other companies or organizations not directly associated with Berkeley Life for marketing purposes. We may also use and augment the information we collect with information that we obtain from other sources, such as public databases, social media platforms and other third parties. To that end, we may contact you directly and we may disclose personally identifiable information to related entities and marketing partners in support of joint marketing and promotional activities, to third party agents responsible for administering such marketing and promotional activities on our behalf.

Where you consent to share your information with third parties: You may be presented with an opportunity to receive information and/or marketing offers from one or more third parties. If you agree at that time to have your personal information shared, your personal information will be disclosed to such third parties and will be subject to the privacy policy and practices of that third party. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of third parties, and, if you later decide that you no longer want to receive communications from a third party, you will need to contact that third party directly.

Promotions: We may offer contests, and other promotions that may require registration. By participating in a promotion, you are agreeing to the official rules that govern that promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you, including, insofar as it is legally permitted to do so, allowing the sponsor(s) of the promotion to use your name, voice or likeness in advertising or marketing associated with the promotion. If you choose to enter a promotion, your personal information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such promotion.

When we are legally permitted to share information: We may disclose your information: i) as required by law, such as to comply with a legal process; ii) when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.

Business sale or transfer: If Berkeley Life is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets it may be necessary to share your information with the relevant third party purchaser.

Information shared publicly by you: Any personal information or image content you voluntarily disclose online in a manner that other users can view (including, but not limited to product reviews and comments on social media pages) becomes publicly available, and can be read, collected, and may be used by others to send you unsolicited messages. Your membership name, email, or other information may also be displayed when you post comments or upload images via our Sites. We are not responsible for the personal information you select to disclose on our Sites.

Information we collect from you may be transferred to, or stored at, a destination in the United States or another destination outside of the United States. It may be processed by staff operating in these locations who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. If you live outside of the United States, you understand and agree that we may transfer your information to the United States. U.S. laws may not afford the same level or protection as those in other countries.

7. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION

Berkeley Life takes the protection of your personally identifiable information very seriously. We have implemented physical, electronic and managerial procedures designed to protect the integrity, security and appropriate use of the personally identifiable information we collect. It is Berkeley Life’s policy not to retain personally identifiable information longer than required for its intended purpose. However, Berkeley Life cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures. We make no warranties as to the security of any information that you submit electronically, the submission of which is done at your own risk. Berkeley Life is not responsible for the data collection and use practices of companies or organizations to which our Sites may provide links.

8. ACCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND PREFERENCES

You can access, update, or change your personal information and communication preferences by signing into your Berkeley Life account and modifying your preferences at your discretion. You can choose not to provide us with any or all of the information we specify or request, but then you may not be able to create an account with us or to take advantage of some or all of our features. If you would like to request information about the collection of your personal information or gain access to or deletion of your personal information please contact us at info@BerkeleyLife.com . In order for us to be able to respond to your request and deal with it effectively, it’s necessary that we know who you are. To make a verifiable request you must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative thereof; describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. We may be prohibited from dealing with a request if we are unable to verify your identity and therefore confirm the personal information in our possession actually relates to you. We will not discriminate against any customer for exercising their rights under applicable privacy legislation.
